Description

Officer Red Markham knows about the ugly side of life after a car accident left him scarred and his parents dead. His job policing the streets of Carlisle, PA, only adds to the ugliness, and lately, drug overdoses have been on the rise. One afternoon, Red is dispatched to the local Y for a drowning accident involving a child. Arriving on site, he finds the boy rescued by lifeguard Terry Baumgartner. Of course, Red isn't surprised when gorgeous Terry won't give him and his ugly mug the time of day.

Overhearing one of the officer's comments about him being shallow opens Terry's eyes. Maybe he isn't as kindhearted as he always thought. His friend Julie suggests he help those less fortunate by delivering food to the elderly. On his route he meets outspoken Margie, a woman who says what's on her mind. Turns out, she's Officer Red's aunt.

Red and Terry's worlds collide as Red tries to track the source of the drugs and protect Terry from an ex-boyfriend who won't take no for an answer. Together they might discover a chance for more than they expected - if they can see beyond what's on the surface.

The audio was sloppy; Narration okay

Any additional comments?

The audio for this was sloppy with skips and changes in volume that were jarring. They seriously need to start getting beta listeners for audio books. Those problems aside, the narration itself was okay.

The story was...well, sweet for the most part, I guess. In a modern day kind of missed the point Beauty and the Beast retelling.

It's also totally unrealistic with either relationship or police procedure, but earnest with it nonetheless. It didn't make me rage at any point, though there were a few eye rolls, and it didn't make me want to go out and junk punch someone, so I'm giving it an extra star for that alone (it's been a bad week for audio and me).

I'm a bit weird though...the only authors that get away with insta-love stories are Mary Calmes, Cardeno C, and shifter stories. All others have to work for it to get a pass, and I'm sorry (not sorry), Mr. Grey, but you didn't make me believe the shallow kid would have slept with and fallen for the scarred policeman so quickly.

Beauty Beast and a big ol' drug bust

I am always amazed at how Andrew Grey publishes new novels more frequently than I write in a journal or review books on Audible. Grey never fails to entertain me, and for that I can't thank him enough. This book wasn't his greatest. but it also wasn't his worse. It's a beauty meets beast love story where both individuals have to reconcile who they are on the outside with their inside. I'm a sucker for a kind heart, so I was immediately drawn to Red. His auntie amused me as well. The drug bust scenario felt a bit too forced but clearly necessary to envoke the "Gastone" character aka James. And lets not forget yummy and poignant sex scenes, along with vivid images of Terry in a pink speedo, and we'll call it an authentic Andrew Grey novel. I'm still debating whether or not it was worth an entire credit... personally... I would have preferred a 2 books for 1 credit type of deal, but I have yet to see that type of sale here on Audible for ANY of the m/m books I read. But, a girl can dream..... about a hottie in a pink Speedo. Just sayin! What!? A girl can dream. HA!

Great Read or Listen

True to form, Andrew Grey captures that special magic of and in some sense, the taboo of two men falling in love. However, I found this a special read because it follows a story of the destruction of the drug crisis currently facing our nation and paints our favorite Beau as a hero to his lover and his community while we see him come to grips with his own demons from the past. You won't regret purchasing this audiobook; just don't plan to stop listening easily

Just ok

I liked the premis of the story. But it just fell flat. One minute Terry is making fun of Red and then they are in bed together. It wasn't believable. The dialog was choppy and unnatural. The narrator didn't help this fact. When author says it's spoken quietly the narrator didn't speak it that way.

Great Story emphasis of the Fire!

What about Randy Fuller’s performance did you like?

I like has he brought each character to life!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Red saves the day. He lets his co-works take the police work while he just runs to Terry!

Any additional comments?

Looking forward to hearing book two

Not for me!

Would you try another book from Andrew Grey and/or Randy Fuller?

I think I've learnt my lesson, I hate Andrew Grey's books
The narrator was OK and I would listen to other books read by him.

Review on "Fire and Water (Carlisle Cops 01)

Würden Sie dieses Hörbuch einem Freund empfehlen? Wenn ja, was würden Sie ihm dazu sagen?

There are no two ways about it, I love Mr Grey's books and how he always creates such sympathic, vibrant MC s ,setting them in his well structured contemporary romance novels and connecting them to his other books (fans like myself recognize references to the „By Fire“, „The Tast of Love“ „Bronco Boys“ series immediately to mention just some). Mr.Grey's latest series sets focus on the local law enforcement team at pittoresque Carlisle/Pennsylvania.

Welcher Moment von Fire and Water ist Ihnen besonders im Gedächtnis geblieben?

Police Officer Red is called to an incident at the public swimming pool where he meets liveguard Terry. Both men are like „Beauty& Beast“ .Red is tall, strong and visible scarred from a traffic accident in his teens . Terry on the other hand has a gorgeous swimmer's figure, good looks and seems all vain and shallow at first. But he also has a rather manipulative ex-boyfriend who terrorizes him. That brings Red into further investigation. At the same time bad drugs are flooding the streets causing many OD s keeping the Carlisle PD busy.

I like Mr.Grey's stories because there isn't much that is totally unpredictable and his MC s are likable and placed in a warm, familiar setting. Still I was a bit irritated with him letting Red&Terry go at it like two hormon overloaden teenagers. I was consoled with their awkwardness and then more slow and realistic getting to know each other afterwards though.

Hat Ihnen Randy Fuller an der Geschichte etwas vermittelt, was Sie vielleicht beim Selberlesen gar nicht bemerkt hätten?

Randy Fuller does a great job narrating this new series. He has a distinct voice for both MC s and all the side characters, narrating with fluency&emphasize . I could listen to his stong voice all day long.

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Clearly the combination of Mr.Grey's writting skills and Mr.Fuller's voice talent is a perfect fit for this new series and I can't wait to hear more! Alongside Red there have been a few fellow officers introduced, so I am curious, who will get his turn in the next book and the chance of finding his love then.
