I'm a huge NR Walker fan and this book didn't disappoint.
The early relationship between closeted MC's Matt and Kira (both strong men) is low angst and feels right as it slowly develops, that is until Walker, who likes to put her MC's through their own personal hell, shoves the men into the open and they decide what (or rather who) is important.
Good guys, a great supportive cast of family and friends, and bad guys who get theirs in the end all make Point of No Return an excellent story to get lost in for a couple of hours.
As always, Sean Crisden does excellent narration and I hope he gives voice to the remaining books in the series. He did a great job of voicing the subtle venerability in Detective Matt Elliott’s character, something that can often be lost in alpha cop characters.

Matthew Elliot is closeted at work and at home. Unofficially the face of his fab-four narcotics team he spends his time afraid anyone will discover his deepest secret.
Kira "Frankie" Franco is the new instructor at the cop gym down the block. Matt takes one look at Kira and knows he's in trouble. Kira realizing Matt is closeted gives him the perfect out - even though Kira is out in his personal life, he has made sure to keep his private life complete private after starting work at the gym. So the two begin seeing each other in secret and their passion explodes.
But it's not all about passion. Matt finally has someone who understands every part of him - including his ambitions - and matches him at every stage. The two are quick to fall in love, and Matt is happier than he's ever been, but the case he's working on is heating up - and about to change all of their lives forever.
Told from Matt's single POV there's a bit of angst, some mystery that's woven really well throughout, action that (with Sean's performance) had me on the edge of my seat, and some pretty hot sex. But mostly, I loved getting to see the relationship between Matt and Kira deepen into a real abiding love.
I don't know if I was just in the mood for it this time, or if Sean Crisden's performance was just that great, but I enjoyed this so much more than when I read it. Sean Crisden was on point with his performance and even managed to drag a couple of tears out of me. This was a really enjoyable listen. Sean's voice was like honey in my ears and a warm blanket wrapped around me.
If you like cops, sexy boxers, some angst, a lot of romance and hot sex, and some kick ass narration - pick this up.
I cannot wait for the other books in the series to come out on audio!

This is the first NR Walker audio I've bought, due to all of her other series so far being narrated by someone I'm unfortunately not that keen on 😕. Sean did a really good job with this first Matt & Kira story, and I can't WAIT to see what he makes of Tom & Cooper [Thomas Elkin series].
