Description

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.

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!

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.

Get it you won't regret it.

First of all Shawn Crisden is a wonderful narrator, he gives life to all his characters.
The story itself was pretty good. It had everything I expected from this genre, good storyline, good plot great characters and we have some hot sex scene.
I will say that Kyra's mom is the best, and Sean does her accent so well.
There are two other stories that go along with this story and I'm so excited to read them.
Get this book you won't regret it.
Also the Steelers don't play on Saturday night!

A different side to N R Walker

Turning Point is a bit different from the feel of N R Walker's other series. it is a great listen that you are taken in and heartbroken that there are only 3 in the series. Her other books are awesome and sexy and light and funny. This gets a bit darker but still has her signature gift. The writing and ability to pick the right narrator to the right books brings it all togethet. N R Walkers talent has no bounds. She can write a light love story, hot steamy love scenes, vampires, AI boyfriends and police dramas. One amazing author, many amazing books

3.5 stars

I’m on the fence with this book! While I usually like Walker’s books and Crisden’s narration, this book did not hold my attention and the narration felt a bit off.

Great!

This novel has many enjoyable elements – the detective camaraderie, the well done M/M romance, the criminal suspense, and the excellent narration by Sean Crisden.

This book is a good example of how an author can build a world that involves co-workers, family, and other secondary characters that play pivotal roles in the novel - in a way that is easy to absorb (as opposed to force-feeding the information). Matthew’s work colleagues are his family with whom he has a strong relationship; and Kira’s parents are warm, hilarious and a wonderful balance in a novel filled with serious topics such as the closing down of drug rings and closeted gay love.

Speaking of which, I felt the author handled well the issue of Matthew and Kira’s closeted sexual preferences and the societal consequences of their ‘coming out’ especially with work colleagues.

The romance was very well executed – Kira and Matthew are mature, likeable men who don’t play games in the courtship phase of their romance. They are refreshingly honest about how they feel and make it a joy to follow their romantic journey. Heart-pounding suspense grips you as Matthew’s detective work-life smashes into his private life testing all his relationships old and new.

Although this is the first in a 3 part series, it is a complete stand-alone that ends with a Happy Ever After or Happy For Now. You can stop reading at the end of this novel if you wish. However, it was excellent and I went on to listen to the remaining 2 novels (about the same characters). The follow-up novels are also great with excellent narration.

I loved every moment of this romance. Highly recommended.
