Book one in the Turning Point series.

Matthew Elliot is one of LA’s best detectives. He’s been labeled the golden boy of the Fab Four: a team of four detectives who’ve closed down drug-rings all over the city. He’s smart, tough and exceptionally good at his job. He’s also a closeted gay man.

Enter Kira Takeo Franco, the new boxing coach at the gym. Matthew can’t deny his immediate attraction to the man his fellow cops know as Frankie. But in allowing himself to fall in love with a man known to his colleagues, Matthew risks outing them both.

Matt and Kira work to keep their relationship and private lives hidden from Matt’s very public life, fearing it would be detrimental to their careers. But it’s not the other cops who Matthew should be worried about finding out his deepest, darkest secret.... It’s the bad guys.

Third edition - has new cover and has been re-edited, though no new content has been added.

Ticks all my boxes...

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.

Loved Sean's Performance!

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!

A little fact-checking goes a long way.

I really enjoyed this book and did not think I would like a story that had a plot about a drug dealer. I found myself trying to figure out what was going on more so with the drug dealer than the actual relationship of the two main characters. the story progressed at a nice pace my only issue is the author clearly knows nothing about the NFL. The league doesn't play in the summer nor do they play on Saturdays. Ono's a good book I'm looking forward to the rest of the books in the series and of course the narrator knocked out of the park.

“I Love You Too”

-dreamy sigh- Still my first love of MM romance stories. Years ago when I first came across this story, it was the cover picture that captured my interest, then the story created this type of adoring magic in my heart for these 2 alpha men (Matt and Kira) with their alpha careers and I was done for. I’ve been reading MM romances ever since.

Everything about this story is perfect! You have romance, action, sexy alpha males, an interesting plot with a bit of mystery, and a fantastic support cast.

I’ve read this story so many times and though it wasn’t MacLeod Andrews, Michael Ferraiuolo, or Greg Tremblay (My dream team of narrators) that brought this story to life for me, having the chance to listen to it truly had me in a ‘dream-filled romantic shield of cloud 9 happiness.’

I still love this story and Kira and Matt so much! ❤️ I’m so grateful the original book cover is back with a small improvement. Good job who ever made that decision 👍

Thrill Ride with Great Characters

I’m on a bit of an N.R. Walker kick these days. This book is one of her (relatively) older books, and has just been released on audio. Since I love N.R., am a Sean Crisden fan, and an audio addict, picking this up was a no-brainer.

Unlike many of her other books, this one is set in Los Angeles instead of Australia. I missed the Aussie expressions, but since I’m Canadian and we are frequently mistaken for Americans, adapting to this different setting was easy.

Matt Elliot is an L.A. police detective who, at 28, already has 10 years with the force. He is one of a group of four detectives who investigate illegal drugs and those involved – dealers, kingpins, gangs, and others. The book begins as the four are hanging at the gym after a major bust. All of the men enjoy working out, but it’s Matt who enjoys sparring in the boxing ring with the gym’s best trainers. Kira Takeo Franco (Frankie) is the best Matt is facing that day and the sparks are instantaneous and intense. Matt’s partners don’t notice, but Frankie does. Matt may not be out – as a police officer it can be dicey –but he and Frankie feel the sexual attraction.

Frankie actually prefers to go by ‘Kira’, the name bestowed upon him by his Japanese mother. She is supportive and accepting of his homosexuality, as is his deaf Spanish father. He is their only son and they adore him. Matt lost his mother at the age of seventeen and has been on his own ever since. He has trouble adapting to both the Francos and their attractive son.

Soon, though, they fall into a comfortable routine. Kira works at the gym, while Matt puts in insane hours at the office. The team brought down a major drug kingpin, but his enterprise has continued without a hiccup. I will say there are supposed to be two surprises and I had both figured out long before they were revealed, but it wasn’t a huge issue.

In their home life, Kira and Matt are completely compatible – in and out of bed. Kira respects Matt’s need to stay in the closet, but it does hurt him.

I liked the development of the relationship. Yes, there was super-hot sex, but there is also an emotional connection, something I expect from N.R.’s books.

The thriller part of was well-done and believable, all the more so because of the strong bond between the two men. After the crisis is over, both men have to settle back into their lives, dealing with the huge changes. Of course they do adjust, but there are a few bumps along the way—same as there are in life.

Sean Crisden is one of my favourite narrators and a perfect pick for a novel set in the U.S. He also did a good job with the accents, including Eastern European and Japanese.

I recommend the book. As Kira says to Matt, “I need you”. Well, this book came at the perfect time for me.

WOW, just WOW

The characters in this book were so well written that they just pulled you into their world, and Sean Crisden breathed life into them. OMG, they made me cry and ache for their pain. This is a good one. Don't miss it.

So glad to see this in audio!

I was so glad to see this FINALLY come to audiobook. This was my first exposure to this wonderful author and it hooked me in right from the start!

What I love about this is the classic story line: two people who shouldn’t be attracted to one another but can’t escape it. A slow burn dance of a romance as things gradually become physical. A deepening of the relationship over time capped with a dangerous situation which eventually pushes their hands and makes them really evaluate their priorities.

This is also an amazing story about coming out and finding your true self. It has some cultural notes in it as well as some disabilities. And we also get to learn something about fighting!

NR Walker isn’t afraid to make her guys really, really work for their HEA and even after things “look” happy we still see the “real life” struggles.

The chemistry between Kira and Matt is electric and the danger had me on the edge of my seat!

I loved Sean’s narration and thought he was a perfect choice for this. He does an amazing job narrating this and handling the various accents. He is a joy to listen to and I can highly recommend this!

Story is suspenseful, Voice performance spot on.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I highly recommend this story, whether you are a reader or listener. The story is suspenseful and multi-layered with very diverse primary and secondary characters. The relationship between Mathew and Kira is edgy yet touching and emotionally and physically passionate

Which scene was your favorite?

I enjoyed the 'camping' vacation as this is when the relationship began to deepen.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Generally, I'm a reader, rather than listener. I've experienced times where the narrator was distracting. This is my first performance by Sean Crisden. I will certainly follow this voice actor as there is value added with his performance. The story is strong yet made stronger by this delivery.

Any additional comments?

I would give this an overall 4.5 stars, 4.5 stars for the story and 5 for delivery.
