Publisher's Summary

When introverted doctor Ben Hardy's high-maintenance girlfriend wants to introduce a little more kink into their love life, he doesn't expect it to come in the form of the hunky new EMT who just moved to Blackwood. Ben's not gay, but damn! He can definitely see why all the women turn to mush when he's around: tall, blue eyes, body of an underwear model. The prospect of being naked in the same room with him is horrifying. So why the hell is he considering it?

Corey Butler desperately needs to leave his shady past behind, and the microscopic town of Blackwood is just the place to do it. No drama, no danger, no sleeping under bridges. What he doesn't need is a huge crush on someone who's completely out of his league. When Dr. Hardy's gorgeous girlfriend propositions him for a threesome, he knows the smart thing would be to say no. Of course it would. But then, Corey's never been known for making smart decisions.

(A M/M Romance containing graphic M/M & M/F/M scenes.)

Even better the 2nd time with Audible!

I've previously read Owning Cory on my Kindle, but when Maris Black said it was being released on Audible with J.F Harding as narrator, I just had to get the audible version and read/listen again. I'm happy to say that story with the narrative makes it even more enjoyable! This a great mm story with a little angst, a little suspense and a whole lot of hot man action with a little m/f/m thrown in to get the balls rolling....definitely worth the 2nd read. Enjoy!

I would give it more stars if I could

so many reviews here got me worried I was going to hate the book. I found it pretty awesome, I don't want to give too much away other than the fact this book is worth every penny.

I enjoyed J. F. Harding's narration

I enjoyed J. F. Harding's narration and the scenes that portrayed Ben and Corey's attraction to each other.
Although it was well written, I found it hard to accept much of the plot and their background stories. So if you can suspend belief and reality, it's worth listening for a gay-for-you romance that develops between these two men.

Doc Comes Out to Play

Started off so well, so funny, so sweet, so passionate: doctor and EMT, until at 5hrs the silliness and shenanigans start with the creepy friend, the blackmailer and the farce at the hospital, dashing in and out of rooms, turning tables, petty jealousy, Chilean drug lord, ill gotten gains etc it's as if the author is throwing everything at this tale to try to bring it to a moderately interesting close. She failed. It turned the story into a pantomime.

The POV kept changing between the MCs; with just one narrator it was very confusing at times to work out who is speaking. Was glad when it ended. HORRIBLE

Love the narrator, struggled with the story

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I will quite honestly listen to JF Harding raed a shopping list and bought this book because I'm a big fan of his, but I struggled with the story. The characters fell a little flat for me and acted more like frat boys than extremely successful medical professionals.

If you’ve listened to books by Maris Black before, how does this one compare?

I am a huge fan of the Kage series and know that Maris Black does not always write easy characters. They are often flawed and sometimes difficult to like. BUt in this instance I honestly felt as if I couldn't get a handle on them. They were two highly decorated medical professionals who acted inappropriate and unprofessionally, spoke like college students and jumped from in love to conflicted from one paragraph to the next.

Have you listened to any of J. F. Harding’s other performances? How does this one compare?

JF Harding only has one setting, excellent. He never disappoints.

If this book were a film would you go see it?

I'm not sure...

Interesting storyline

It took me about a week to listen to the book but it was engaging. I felt the characters were a bit on the shallow side at first but then they grew on me.
