I am reviewing these two audiobooks together because they are books 1 and 2 of a series and meant to be considered as a single ongoing story. The publishers committed two related unforgivable sins in the audio production of these works. Sin one was to change narrator’s between books one and two. Sin two was to be so careless as to change genders of the narrator’s between books one and two. WTF was on their beady little minds.
The first book’s romance is set between two 18 year old seniors, Jason and Riley, on a high school basketball team. This is appropriate for a first love romance. Then the author throws in a weird twist of making the more masculine figure a werewolf. The werewolf after declaring what he is abandons his love interest to go run with his pack several states away; leaving a huge cliffhanger of an ending.
The second book is set after graduation from high school and has nothing to do with basketball other than a reference as playing it in the past. A new sweet non-shape-snifter love story starts when boom, between heartbroken Jason and insecure but always faithful Rex. The story is interrupted when the werewolf Riley makes a sudden reappearance at the end bringing the story to a screeching halt. Is this a cliffhanger to a third book? WHO KNOWS? Based on the horrible change in narrators it is this reviewer’s opinion, who cares. The author obviously does not know whether she wants to write a sports teamed book or a shape-snifter book or a sweet and tender first true love book.

I thoroughly enjoyed the initial book of this small series. This book however, I listened to for so long, about 3 chapter's before having to refrain from reading any further.
Let me say that it wasn't the writing, as I said, I really enjoyed the first book. I can say that this author is now one of my favourite's. The thing which ruined this book for me was the choice of narrator.
Who in their right mind chose a female narrator for a gay, m/m book. Surely they must have realised that this was a very poor choice for a gay male book. I also hope that they have learned from this appalling error. Such a book as this needs to be read by a male with the correct tone of voice.
I feel justified in asking for a full refund on this book, or, that the book be re-recorded using a suitable male and my being notified that this has been carried out, allowing me to enjoy what has the potential to be a great follow-up to the previous book.
