It's Mary Calmes it's narrated by one of two people who I absolutely adore hearing read a Mary Calmes book and that's Tristan James. I've recently listened to a few Mary Calmes stories that were narrated by someone other than Tristan James or Greg Tremblay and don't get me wrong they were ok. But, when it comes to Ms Calmes books no one does a better job than of it for me than either Tristan James or Greg Tremblay.
The Marshals are my favorite Mary Calmes series...sorry, Sam, Jory...you are a close second but Miro and Ian just work for me. So I started with a 5 star read and added a favorite narrator and came up with a 5 star audio book that left me very happy and already plotting when I'll listen to this one again. That's it what more can I say. I loved it and I think we're done here now. Have a good summer everyone and I'm back to my vacation.
This was a very enjoyable read.
I liked the beginning very much- liked the story and the characters.
The slow burn and the sexual tension.
Up until 50/60%.
Then it went into sappy fantasy land with lightning speed.
And besides the ultra-fast 0 to 100 in the relationship realm, the reality started to fade out as well. Suddenly everyone was super accepting with gays in general and in law enforcement. The side characters turned out bi or gay to at least 50%.
This threw me out of the story and the over the top love talk as well.
It somehow clashed horribly with the tough Green Beret character.
So I deduct 2 stars for the last third.
I am not sure I will check out the second installment...
1st read - 17 June to 18 June 2015
2nd read - 12 April to 13 April 2016
This book is still awesome, still hawt, still funny and I still LOVE Miro and Ian. This is totally going to be a go to 'happy place' book.
One thing that still annoys the heart and soul out of me though, and makes me want to smack a bitch, is Aruna not wanting to return Chickie Baby!!
GET YOUR OWN DAMN DOG!!!!!

"The desire to slide my hands over his hard muscular frame, to have those thick arms wrapped around me, and to lick every inch of his sleek olive skin was a constant craving. I was ready to taste him, have him, and keep him the second he gave the word."
Miro and Ian are just awesome and I after scouring the internet (i.e. having a look on Mary Calmes website) I've discovered that this looks to be a series. No indication as yet about when the next book is out or what it will be about but I am hoping HARD that it will be soon and will be a continuation of Miro and Ian.
This is a lovely and funny and HAWT 'friends to lovers' story, it has the awesomeness of growly alpha's and the ridiculous story line that I'm coming to love from Mary Calmes. There are a lot of secondary characters (I couldn't keep Miro's girlfriends straight, I've no idea who was who or who met who first) but since it seems to be the start of a series I guess there is time for it to be made clearer, still, there are a lot of people to keep track of.
Miro and Ian though? New lickable males alert!!
"You're the only one I've ever wanted. You made what I needed okay."
My biggest issue in this book is the uncertainty surrounding what's going to happen with Chickie. For that alone there better be another book or I will be very unhappy.
