Description

A former FBI agent is partnered with the enemy in this suspenseful male/male shifter romance from debut author Charlie Adhara.

Hunting for big bad wolves was never part of Agent Cooper Dayton's plan, but a werewolf attack lands him in the carefully guarded Bureau of Special Investigations. A new case comes with a new partner: ruggedly sexy werewolf Oliver Park. 

Park is an agent of The Trust, a werewolf oversight organization working to ease escalating tensions with the BSI. But as far as Cooper's concerned, it's failing. As they investigate a series of mysterious deaths unlike anything they've seen, every bone in Cooper's body is suspicious of his new partner - even when Park proves himself as competent as he is utterly captivating. 

When more people vanish, pressure to solve the case skyrockets. And though he'd resolved to keep things professional, Cooper's friction with Park soon erupts...into a physical need that can't be contained or controlled. But with a body count that's rising by the day, werewolves and humans are in equal danger. If Cooper and Park don't catch the killer soon, one - or both - of them could be the next to go. 

Contains mature themes.

Can’t wait for more

This book showed up on my “like others I have read” section and I’m glad it did.

This story was awesome. It was able to explain how werewolves are around us and hiding while also explain how the BSI was established and run. The author was able to keep me in suspense, not knowing what might happen next to our hero’s, or what they might find out. I was excited to see there are two more books in this series as the ending seemed a bit too quick to wrap up.

I didn’t like however the speed the narrator used to read. At times it was sure hard to keep up when they would slip from on character to the next, one exchange to the next. He was able to give more feeling in some situations then I was expecting which was helpful. I also didn’t enjoy how the same tone and pitch were used for most of the characters. It was hard to distinguish who was talking at given times and I had to go back and relisten to entire chapters to make sure I understood who said what and to who they it to.

I hope the same narrator can come back for the next two books and add some voices and separation so the characters are easier to tell apart.

TERRIBLE MONOTONE NARRATOR

Will be returning the audio and read the book instead. The narrator's performance is intolerable.

A good fit for FBI procedural, and Cooper's voice

Book 1 of my favorite m/m series is on audiobook?!?!?!?! I could not give Amazon my money fast enough.

Pros: The matter-of-fact narration style works well for an FBI detective story. The voice of prickly Cooper, who feels off balance and on the defense for a good part of the book, feels right. As does the lighter, slightly amused voice for Park. I liked that they went with a relatively unknown narrator. Some narrators like Joel Leslie or Nick Russo are awesome but so ubiquitous within the genre that I can get the voices confused with the many books they've already done.

Cons: For a few side characters' voices, the narrator speaks the dialogue quite quickly. It adds distinctiveness (some people really are 'fast talkers'), but I had to rewind a few times when I missed something. The two steamy scenes have the same matter-of-fact narration, and aren't overly sexy. I'm okay with that. This is meant to be a mystery, not erotica. But a little part of me misses the dirty voices of more popular romance narrators :)

The next two books are much more romantic, and certainly sexier than book 1. I hope the narrator embraces that side of it if he continues. Everything else works great!

trouble

I'm not sure if it's me or Erik (narrator) no inflection, or differention in characters.

NARRATOR DOES NO JUSTICE TO THE STORYLINE

The author put together a good storyline except (perhaps I missed it when reading the intro) I was unaware that the story had strong homosexual content including vivid sexual content of this nature. I'm sure that is a good thing for many but did not fit my elective reading content well. We just fast forwarded and moved on.
The narrator has a good voice for this work but reads so fast that sentences are often run on and it takes away from the story tremendously.

Decent Premise, bad execution.

I like the combination of m/m, mystery and the supernatural a lot, but none of the parts really delivered.

The mystery just did not build up the suspense well enough to keep me engaged. Other books make you keep reading/listening because you want to know, this one did not quite manage that.

The supernatural was okay but a bit bland. It is one of those werewolf stories with just too little wolf in them.

The romance lastly suffered for me from having the protagonist more or less being fully the „partner at fault“ while Olliver was just a bit too perfect all in all.
Romance needs both characters playing off each other and that just felt lacking.

And I fear I really have grown very tired of the type of protagonist who ends up wallowing in his guilt.
This was particularly off near the ending.
It just comes across as cheap fishing for drama.

Lastly, I think the story ended up too clumsy in its political statements. I think it pays off a lot better to make them more subtle. I just felt like rolling my eyes for being part of the choir being preached to.

The narrator definitely did a good job though.

Great story...poor narration

If it were not for the fact that I had read this book prior to getting the audio version, I'm not sure I would have struggled through the horrific narration. I thoroughly enjoyed the story. Park and Dayton are mesmerizing...I remembered from reading. As I listened, I compared Bloomquist's reading style as that of listening to your computer read a book...drone and sad. But let me give you a spoiler though...as bad a Bloomquist's narration is...he gets better in the series...in fact, he finds his way and is much, much better. Perhaps this was his first book to provide narration for. Either way...it's a well written story...a fan of Adhara's style.

Worth the listen!

For all the comments about how fast he reads.... just change the tempo to .95x.

He may not do multiple voices like I am used to...but he reads the book with the right inflection and emotion. I followed along and enjoyed every moment of the story.

Every narrator is different so I don't like to compare. I like his version of narrating, even without multiple voices for the characters.... HE IS NOT MONOTONE.

I repeat....Every narrator has their own style, and he made this book enjoyable.🙂🙂

A Little Adjustment Goes A Long Way

I struggled to get into the rhythm of this story at first, the narration was a little more fast paced then what I'm used to. I've never changed the settings on an audiobook before, but after a little experimenting I found changing the pace to .90 was just perfect. Once I did that, everything was great. Good story, good narration, already bought the next in the series.
