Audiobook: Review of Guarding Morgan by RJ Scott

ac969-guardingmorganReview of Guarding Morgan. 5 stars by Shee Reader

Amazon (US) | Amazon (UK) | Audible| Excerpt at SoundHound

Guarding Morgan is the first book in the Sanctuary Series by R J Scott. I absolutely loved audio version of this book. Sean Crisden’s voice is perfect for the narration, bringing perfect angst and atmosphere to the reading.

The book drops the reading directly into the drama of Morgan, and innocent witness to a murder, fleeing for his life after his FBI safe house has been compromised (meaning there was a shoot out and more killing). Morgan follows the flight plan drilled into him by his FBI close protection officer, to run to his former partner who retired from the FBI after a life changing injury.

I cared for Morgan from the outset. His situation of being a normal guy caught in the wrong place at the right time is chillingly realistic. Nick, the growly giant of a former FBI agent who now works for Sanctuary – protecting people no other agency can keep safe – is planning some R&R after a tough case when he gets an anguished call from his former partner to rescue his client.

The tale is gripping, funny, romantic, hot and sweet. With a happy ever after for Morgan and Nick that leads beautifully into the next book in the series.

Do yourself a favour and fall into the exciting world of witness protection and hot men. What more could you need?

 

I was given a complimentary copy of the audio book in return for an honest review.

Audiobook Review of Cold Feet by Jay Northcote

cold feet banner

Bike Book Reviews gave a 5 out of 5 ice microphone rating for Cold Feet by Jay Northcote.

The narrative is Matthew Lloyd Davies, who is always one of our favourites.

I’m proud to confess that Bec has me converted from a person that didn’t like Christmas books to a person that loves them!!! 

So, as a new addict to Christmas books and audiobooks, I jumped at the chance to review Cold Feet from Jay Northcote (the fact that I had just finished “The little things” and loved it was a bonus – hehehe)

We meet Ryan and Sam while they get snowed alone in a remote cottage…  They are best friends, they share a house, and Sam is out and proud…  What Sam never confessed to anyone, was his interest in his straight best friend… Read the rest here.

Best friends snowed in together. When the heat rises, will they get cold feet?

Getting snowed in at a remote cottage in Wales with someone he’d fancied for ages isn’t exactly how Sam expected to spend Christmas. His feelings for Ryan are pointless. Ryan’s straight – or so he thought.

Until now, Ryan’s kept his feelings for Sam buried. Why ruin a friendship over what might only be gay experimentation? Playing it cool seems safer, until a cold snap makes sharing body heat vital. In their Welsh safe haven, anything seems possible.

As Ryan’s reserve melts away, Sam wants more than stolen kisses under the mistletoe. But a sudden thaw means making decisions. They could face the New Year together – unless one of them gets cold feet.

Blurb: 

Five sex-free dates. How hard can it be?

When they were at uni, Owen always had a bit of a crush on Nathan. But Nathan was apparently straight, and Owen was too busy with other guys to take his crush seriously.

When Nathan moves back to Bristol after a year away, Owen hears that Nathan has come out of the closet, and he propositions him. Nathan doesn’t want to be just another notch on Owen’s bedpost, though, so he challenges Owen to prove he can be serious: five dates before they have sex.

Owen doesn’t think that sounds too difficult. He’s expecting Nathan to find his charms irresistible anyway. But as they grow closer, Owen begins to care more about proving himself to Nathan than he does about getting him into bed.

Lisa’s Review:

I loved this story so when I was offered the chance to review the audiobook version, I jumped at it. I love Jay’s writing and the ease with which she draws you into Nathan and Owen’s world, but hearing that world brought to life by Matthew Lloyd Davies was something else entirely.

I have to admit, at first, I wasn’t sure I liked his voice. Not that it’s not a beautiful voice, it is. A very proper English gentleman’s voice like Colin Firth’s that I would be more than happy to listen to all day – but I was a bit concerned as to whether he would pull off some of the more… shall we say… intimate scenes? And, having already read the book, I knew there was more than one.

I was, however, completely wrong about the intimate bits and found myself drawn in by his characterisation of Nathan and Owen, and the secondary characters, Simon, Jack and Kirsty. He brought them to life before my very ears and I listened to the whole thing in one go! His narration was gorgeous with the right amount of inflection, the subtle change in tone for each character and the right amount of emotion.

I loved it and can’t wait to hear the sequel in that silky smooth voice.

The Dating Game (Audiobook) gets a well deserved 5 Stars!

 

Interesting Blogs: The Man behind the Voice by Jay Northcote

Jay Northcote interviewed Matthew Lloyd Davies, the voice of her audiobooks, Not Just Friends and The Dating Game.

Do you read the book beforehand all the way through before recording?

See above. I didn’t once, the deadline was too close, and as a result I had a very posh English woman suddenly confessing the secrets of her past and revealing the reasons for her South American accent. Oops… a lot of editing.

NEW RELEASE: NOTHING SERIOUS (AUDIOBOOK) BY JAY NORTHCOTE

Blurb:

Mark O’Brien is finally being honest with himself. His relationship with Rachel is over and he’s moving out of the home they’ve shared for six years. They get along, but he can’t fix a relationship when the person he’s with is the wrong gender.
Jamie Robertson, one of the removal men, is huge and ridiculously gorgeous, and Mark is smitten at first sight. When a cardboard box splits, revealing items of a personal nature that Mark never wanted anybody to see, he’s mortified. But it sparks the start of a beautiful friendship with benefits.
As Jamie initiates Mark into the joys of gay sex, the two men get increasingly close and “nothing serious” turns into something rather important to both of them. But communication isn’t their strong point. Will either man ever find the courage to be honest about his feelings?
