Publisher's Summary

Detective Gabriel Ashby has never looked twice at another man, yet the criminal across from him, the man he's interrogating, isn't like any other. Gabe can't deal with the sudden, intense need he has for one of NYPD's Most Wanted. Everyone close to Angelo Pagan ends up dead, with the smug gang leader standing amid the rubble. Gabe would love nothing more than to bust Angelo's ass and lock him up. So why is he seeing the bastard in his dreams at night? Angelo Pagan knows attraction to Gabe is suicide. He's resolute to ignore the chemistry…until a police raid goes wrong. He critically injures Gabe, changing the trajectory of both their lives. Now the two can't get close enough. They settle into a forbidden affair threatened by lies and betrayal, living on different sides of the law with no way of breaching the gap between them. With the authorities looking to make an example of Angelo, Gabe has to decide if it's really worth it to hate the sin but love the sinner.

YES!!!! One of my favorite m/m series!!!

I totally preordered all four books in this series and eagerly waited from them to release... I got this series on e-book... and was hoping for it to be narrated...

It was awesome...

Angel and his cop Gabe really set this entire series off on a grand scale... I loved Angel!!!

I absolutely loved the narrator... as I read this book before, so I really expected a lot from the narrator, as there is a lot of Spanish... Renard Pasquale nailed it!!! He transition from Spanish to English perfectly, and even narrated Angel with a Spanish accent... Perfection!!

Any fan of m/m romance need to have this entire series in their collection... One of the good ones... It has drama (gang/cop action); romance (smexy scene that leave you panting) and last but not least... a storyline (it's a series with reappearing characters).

Great buy/sale/credit!!

Literally one of my all time favorite narrations!

Gabe is an NYPD police detective working on the drug crimes in NYC. He investigates Los Ps – a gang involved in guns and drugs – run by Angelo Pagan. While interrogating Angelo something crazy happens and the previously only straight cop finds himself lusting after the gay criminal.

Angelo, too, finds Gabe intriguing, and despite the obvious craziness and danger in the situation, the two embark on a slow but hot relationship.

Eventually, something will have to change. Gabe cannot stay in his profession and be with Angelo at the same time – but what will he choose? His life or his love?



I’m going to have to include my review of the Audio with the book here because OMG the two MUST be experienced together! Renard Pasquale NAILS this. He is a WONDER. He did the Brooklyn accent, the Hispanic accent, the Spanish words, the passion, the emotion, the danger… all of it impeccably. Avril Ashton writes HOT and DARK romances and Renard’s voice just works so perfectly here.

While the story seems totally impossible, somehow Avril makes it seem plausible, possible and pre-destined. Gabe and Angelo share that kind of love that really epic love stories are all about. When you have to give up everything for the one you love… wow … that’s devotion.

The smexy times are OFF THE CHARTS hot and the feels – wow – so many feels – all the feels!

I’ve loved and listened to this many times over the years and I can’t believe this is my first time sitting down and writing a review for it!

If you haven’t read/listened to this series you are seriously missing out. I won’t lie – there are parts that are hard to listen to and it’s a dark story – but the end is so sunshiny bright and beautiful – it’s totally worth the ride.

(One teeny tiny criticism – I didn’t care for Syren voice at all – he carries that same voice over for Syren’s story and it’s the one in the four part collection that I didn’t adore. I liked it a lot – but between the BDSM and Syren voice it fell easily to my least favorite of the lot.)

6 of 5 stars highly recommened

Love transcends all

Where does Love the Sinner rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Love the Sinner ranks amongst the most enjoyable books that I have listened to. This is gay "Mills & Boons" at its best!

What other book might you compare Love the Sinner to, and why?

Love the Sinner compares well with such books as, The Way It Is, by A J Thomas. Both involve seemingly impossible relationships between characters from the authorities and those outside the law.

Have you listened to any of Renard Pasquale’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I have read Renard Pasquale's narrations of all four of Avril Ashton's, Brooklyn Sinner, series. He brings all the characters to life with vivid vocal dramatisation, maintaining a high standard throughout.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Unconditional love has never been this hard!

Any additional comments?

Avril Ashton is able to spin a gripping story, filling out the different characters in strong and vivid ways making them believable. This makes the whole series of the Brooklyn Sinner, a memorable read. Highly recommended!

Flawed, but I loved it anyway

When I read a rec for this book I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. I loved the premise of the bad guy and the cop. I wasn't disappointed despite some things grating on me.

I loved the dynamic between the two, the hot sex, how much they loved one another and the backdrop for the story. Some of the side characters were great, Pablo, Kane and Angelo's mother. (I've happily downloaded Pablo and Kane's own stories ready to go.)

Make no mistake, this book is both HOT HOT HOT and it doesn't sugar coat the violence and who Angelo really is. That is a very readable/listenable combination.

Renard Pasquale is the perfect narrator too, the way he does the accents is just right - although Syren's accent is plain weird.

(Spoilers below)
What I didn't like about it was the speed in which it went from first sight to love. I like a bit of build up. Gabe barely blinked before jumping into bed with Angelo the criminal and as a dedicated cop surely there would've at least *some* angst about it first, or at least after they first got it on, but no, it was straight to LOVE. Then Gabe goes bonkers about something that Angelo does, breaks it off, then five minutes later he's being all moody that Angelo made a decision without him when they weren't even together. He wasn't very consistent!
