Publisher's Summary

Going home digs up bad memories, so it's something Bureau of Special Investigations agent Cooper Dayton tries to avoid. When he's guilted into a visit, Cooper brings along Oliver Park, his hot new werewolf partner, in the hopes the trip will help clarify their status as a couple...or not.

When Park's keen shifter nose uncovers a body in the yard and Cooper's father is the prime suspect, Cooper knows they're on their own. Familial involvement means no sanctioned investigation. They'll need to go rogue and solve the mystery quietly or risk seeing Cooper's dad put behind bars.

The case may be cold, but Park and Cooper's relationship heats up as they work. And yet if Cooper can't figure out what's going on between them outside of the bedroom, he'll lose someone he... Well, he can't quite put into words how he feels about Park. He knows one thing for sure: He's not ready to say goodbye, though with the real killer inching ever closer...he may not have a choice.

Contains mature themes.

It's Complicated

performance: the narrator isn't bad. He just doesn't "do voices." He reads well and clearly and with good intonation. There just aren't different voices for different characters.

the story: the biggest problem in this series is Cooper, the main character. He is a selfish man, parsimonious in his trust and affection. A habitual liar. Given to lashing out in fear and anger. His back story doesn't justify it. As a male romantic lead...he's awful.

But he's a good narrator. He tells the story well, and the story is interesting. I read the books before I listened to them, and I'm still somewhat puzzled by why I like them when I don't really like Cooper.

I liked this, but I can absolutely understand why someone might not. That makes for a rotten recommendation, but there it is.

So much better...

The narrator is so much better, which makes the story that much better. I am slowly but surely falling in love with Oliver and Cooper. Meeting Cooper's father and brother and the mystery that unfolds was great listening.

Hard read for me

I was initial put off by the narration on this book and decided to keep with it (maybe I’d get used to it). Sorry to say that didn’t happen.

I found the story intriguing and the characters interesting and I have since read all available in the series. But that had less to do with the Investigation aspect of the books and more to see where the characters ended up.

I fortunately this was not one of my favourite reads of 2020 but if you love crime and don’t mind an introspective detective and an uncommunicative werewolf this is the series for you.

Fantastic read!

I'm really enjoying this writer's works. I loved the first book and I love this sequel too. The characters are interesting, with distinct personality and amazing chemistry. The plot is tight and engaging, great murder mystery enhanced by the consistent worldbuilding.

The narrator is excellent, really excellent voice acting and great at making each character sound different without it becoming distracting.

Not what I thought it would be

You Shouldn't Judge a Book By It's Cover!!!!
I listened to 1 and a half chapters. I thought it was about werewolves etc .. what I didn't know was that they were homosexual policeMEN , constantly in one another's backsides in great detail . A..".waste "of time and money for me .
