    Description

    After a recent case with a treacherous client, North and Shaw are ready to go back to work building Borealis Investigations. They’re also ready to go back to dodging their feelings for each other, with neither man ready to deal with the powerful emotions the Matty Fennmore case stirred up.

    Everything is getting back to normal when their secretary asks for help: her girlfriend’s boss has gone missing. Shep Collins runs a halfway house for LGBTQ kids and is a prominent figure in St. Louis’s gay community. When he disappears, however, dark truths begin to emerge about Shep’s past: his string of failed relationships, a problem with disappearing money, and his work, years before, as one of the foremost proponents of conversion therapy.

    When Shep’s body turns up at the halfway house, the search for a missing person becomes the search for a murderer. As North and Shaw probe for answers, they find that they are not the only ones who have come looking for the truth about Shep Collins.

    Their investigation puts them at odds with the police who are working the same case, and in that conflict, North and Shaw find threads leading back to the West End Slasher - the serial killer who almost took Shaw’s life in an alley, seven years before. 

    As the web of an ancient conspiracy comes to light, Shaw is driven to find answers, and North faces what might be his last chance to tell Shaw how he really feels.

    Slow Burn not for the faint of heart

    Gregory Ashe doesn't write warm fluffy hot chocolate cozies with romance. His work reminds me more of Marshall Thomas's Boystown Mystery series with a serious overlay of angst-ridden slow burn between its detectives . At least in Borealis, we get to see the two break through to an actual relationship at the end of book 2. He made us wait three books in Hazard and Somerset.

    Gregory Ashe's detectives work on bloody, gritty, messy mysteries that touch the lives of its detectives in bloody, gritty, messy ways. They are, at times, pretty dark. Some of the recurring characters aren't especially likable (I appreciate Shaw's loyalty to her, but I can't find anything to like in Pari), but they do provide color. Others (hi, Jadon) are good people who do pretty consistently good things.

    I found listening to the story hard because it was so edge of your seat on every plot strand we've had so far. Twice I took a break and listened to another book entirely. Both times I came back to the story because...

    1. Shaw and North have some of the best banter among characters ever. it's clever and funny and lightens up otherwise confrontational scenes. The dialogue in general is really well written.
    2. Shaw and North are both good people with great chemistry. They are stupid towards each other sometimes, but they have an 8 year history they're untangling. I wanted them together. Ashe made me care about that.
    3. It's well read. Charlie David's voice works for both Shaw and North. He is a good story teller. I didn't ever have to work out who was talking. His voices are distinct.
    4. Nevermind Pari and Chuck and Shep et al. I want to know who is involved in the Slasher and see them all get what's coming to them. That's the really hard part of this series. Ashe is hard on his main characters (Hazard and Somerset make a cameo here, and they're both still recovering from the end of their first series.), and I feel like if I don't show up, who knows what he'll put them through. Gregory Ashe probably bathes in the tears of his readers, but he still writes a truly compelling novel, and Charlie David reads it well.

    So emotional!

    Now that wasn't nice.... I mean that cliffhanger... I might go bald from ripping out all of my hair waiting for the next book.. So… after finishing this book you might have guessed I'm not in the best of moods, and I blame it all on that bloody cliffhanger… But you know what, to save us all from insanity (and my major ranting), I think I'll just go away and write this review another day - when I've had the chance to calm down.

    ………..

    It’s been a few days since finishing this book, and I’m still not happy about that ending. Calmer, but not happy. So I’m going to try to tell you about my feelings for the rest of the book. It did take me a while to get into this story, but once I did I couldn't stop listening. Before I knew it the book had ended, leaving me wanting, no needing, to know more. More about what happened next, but also more about Shaw and North.

    There were many raw moments, charged ones in this book. To be honest they were stockpiled as if expecting a major sale somewhere. For me, Shaw especially touched me this time around. I don’t know why, but I had this idea that he was the stable one of the two. Sure he had hangups and issues, but with his past how could he not still be affected by it? But for some for some reason, in my mind, he’d found a way to deal with it, to function and not only on the surface. So it seems that I too fell for that act, that surface. My heart broke for him and I really wish he’d accept help to get better, because he really needs it. His facade is fraying at the edges and I fear what will happen to him when it crumbles.

    Both North and Shaw are, for a lack of a better term, messed up. And majorly so. They have so many huge issues that sometimes I feel it was a wonder they even functioned. Then again, they didn’t really. They are both so good at hiding everything they feel. Hide it from each other but also from themselves.

    Triangulation is not a book you pick up if you are looking for something pink and fluffy. Contrary to what the cover might suggest this book is mentally draining. It’s filled with emotions, angst and horrors and many that you’ll feel deeply. Wishing to know more at the same time you are wishing for it to stop.

    The bath tub scene and the events leading up to it were the most raw moments I’ve come across in books for a long while. The feelings were just oozing from North and Shaw and Charlie David. In those moments there were so many emotions I don’t think I could name them all, the horror, despair and fear, the hopelessness, love, longing, want and need. It was all jumbled and Charlie David made you feel them all – and then some. He will have your head spinning in the best and worst ways.

    After finishing this book you might want to look for something pink and fluffy to recover. Because this ride is insane.

    Slow Burn . . . so worth it!

    Some listeners are put off by the slow burn that Shaw and North have going on throughout this book...typically I would be the same...cut to the chase...get on with it...but what I like was that their relationship wasn't filled with angst and longing (ok a bit of that) but really mutual respect...

    Not going to tell you how that ends up...no spoilers here...but I will say that the length of the book scared me a bit (would it drag on) BUT it didn't... the story moved along (quicker than their relationship...lol).

    I was given a copy of this book to review but it was on my list to purchase anyway...since I purchased the Audible the first Borealis Investigations Book and will also listen to the third one.

    Shaw and North are moving up the ladder of favorite MM series...

    Charles David did an excellent job especially with Shaw and North's "back and forth" I laughed out loud more than a few times!

    4.5 stars- Great narrator who elevates the book

    Triangulation is the second book in the Borealis Investigations series and is definitely one which should be read in order. I needed a bit of an adjustment period to warm up to Shaw and North when reading the first book, but the pair of friends and work partners really shown in Triangulation. I enjoyed their banter and silliness even ore this time and really loved the fast, fun pace that makes these books incredibly hard to put down.

    I read the first book in the Borealis Investigations series and listened to the second, and I definitely think this narrator is a spot on choice for the series. In fact, I’d wager his performance played a big role in why I enjoyed the second book in the series even more than the first. His voice fit the characters, moments, and pace so very well, inputting emotion into the scenes without overplaying them.

    The suspense element in Triangulation was well done with some good twists I didn’t anticipate at all. There’s still a bit of levity and luck involved with North and Shaw’s investigations, but the series is not lacking in suspense or action. I think what really won me over in Triangulation was the romance and character progression. I enjoyed getting to see more from both North and Shaw, including a good amount of insight into their past feelings and experiences, and I was incredibly happy that this book really furthered their relationship. Plus that ending…wow! I’m torn between wanting to dive into book three because I have to know what happens next and forcing myself to wait because I so enjoyed Mr. David’s narration. If you like some silliness with your suspense and mystery, I definitely would recommend giving this series a look or, better yet, a listen. I think many will develop just as much a soft spot in these two best friends turned PI partners as I have.

    Great story. Great narration.

    Where do I start... I am deeply engrossed in this series. Ashe is one of those evil authors who knows how to rile up the readers at the start and keep them incensed to the end. Vulnerable kids being put in jeopardy left me in protective big sister mode. I listened to the entire book slightly tense.

    This book got only four stars from me on the first listen because I wanted to smack North and Shaw. Without any epic spoilers, I will just say that Jadon sums up their situation perfectly. Maybe the book deserve an extra star because I am so invested. I haven't decided yet.

    Great mystery. Great characters. Witty dialogue. Nice conclusion. The narration was great. A few words pronounced in unexpected ways, but since I have a cowboy accent (Wyoming and western South Dakota not the Texas one) I won't judge.

    I recommend this whole series. Especially if you liked Hazard and Somerset's series.

    Gregory Ashe is trying to kill me

    Come on, Ashe! Can I not be happy for 5 freaking minutes before the next complication?? 😤 *grumbles* Even though it was worth it, in the end. Well, except for the very end.

    I completely ignored real life to read this entire book yesterday. Except for work, as I can't slap headphones on there, unfortunately. *rude*

    North & Shaw both broke my heart here, even while they frustrated me so badly I thought they'd break me. Shaw is suffering badly from PTSD relating to his attack by the West End slasher. For someone who is so damn smart and believes so strongly in therapy, Shaw is trying to force himself to "get over" his trauma instead of actually addressing it. His method, in my opinion, is actually the worst thing he could possibly do. And this has nothing *mostly* to do with the fact that I can't stand Jadon *more teeth-grinding* 😬. It's not reasonable on my part, as he really seems to care for Shaw. He's just not North.

    For his part, I was so proud of North for staying resolute against Tucker, that bastard. Not that I'd expect anything else from him but in that situation, especially given his hopelessness over Shaw, many men would choose the familiar over loneliness, even if it didn't make them happy. However, the fact that he let Tucker get in his head about Shaw, that Shaw would never want him, just killed me.

    It's no secret that Gregory Ashe's writing is capable of twisting your whole self into impossible, tortuous knots over his characters but his mystery can be equally harrowing. The case our guys are on here starts with a missing boss, and all they need to do is locate him. But of course, he turns up dead. The case spirals into several different directions, and one of those directions has Shaw increasingly convinced this somehow ties back to the slasher, who supposedly died in prison recently. The other main direction seems to point to dirty cops, and North and Shaw's investigation has put them into the direct path of those same cops. There were several places in the story that were honestly chilling and I was genuinely afraid for North and Shaw. As much as I love the times these guys are focused on each other, I'm usually just as wrapped up in the crime. That's a balancing act that's damn well done by GA.

    And my God, thank you, finally. 🥰🥰 Finally North and Shaw admit to each other how they feel. But of course it's not as easy as that. I was so proud of Shaw for fighting for North, for saying (view spoiler)!! If you don't think I was absolutely gleeful at that, then you give me too much credit LOL! :) When they finally pull their heads out of their asses *I swear I love them BUT....* and talk to each other, it's everything I've wanted for them, and it's tender and sweet and I was completely melted. 😍

    Only to have GA rudely yank me out of my happy relationship bliss for more threats to North and Shaw. And this evil cliffhanger sent me, again, directly to download Declination and thank all the gods I didn't read this until all (?) the books were available.

    Charlie David once more did a great job with the narration and allowed me to get lost in the story.

    Another stunningly emotional, excellently done story for two of my very favorite guys. *swoon* At this point, Gregory Ashe has definitely made it to my auto-buy list, I'll read anything he writes.
