All's Fair was definitely all good...
Fair Chance - Josh Lanyon,J. F. Harding

Wow, this one was awesome. Everything's come full circle. Elliot's consulting on the case that started it all as things come to a close. Tucker and Elliot are together and both men are determined to make this a forever thing. Things however start to get dicey again when it comes to light that maybe 'The Sculptor' wasn't acting alone and he had an accomplice...suddenly no one's safe again and when Tucker disappears. 

Elliot knows it's The Sculptor at work and he's sure that time isn't on his side but he's not ready to give up on finding Tucker. I found myself totally absorbed by this one following Elliot as he searches for his missing partner. While the body count rises and the clues begin to add up Elliot does his own soul searching and realizes that having the future he wants can only happen if he finds the man he loves.

From start to finish I've loved this series. The mystery, the romance, the characters have all come together to create a series that gave me one hella' good reading/listening experience that I know I'll be revisiting in the future. I don't know if Ms. Lanyon has more in store for Tucker and Elliot but if she does I am so there and on board for the adventure.

J. F. Harding was once again the narrator for the third installment of this series and I thoroughly enjoyed his contribution to making bringing this story to life with what once again proved to be an enjoyable narration. Having listened to him narrate 'Fair Play' made this book feel very much like I was spending a few hours with people I knew. Elliot and Tucker's voices were recognizable and felt familiar. It's truly a pleasure to listen to a series with the same characters when you are given the same narrator and while it's not one of the boxes on my 'things I look for in an audio book' I think I may have to add it because consistency...it's a thing or at least for me it is.

Once again things were definitely better than fair...
Fair Play - Josh Lanyon,Richard Harding Davis

After surviving the events of 'Fair Game' Elliot and Tucker are making a go of being a couple and while it's not always perfect both men are determined to make it work this time. 

While Tucker's still wrapping up the case that brought them back together, Elliot finds himself embroiled in a new mystery one that seems to have come from the past...but not his, his father's.

As Elliot becomes wrapped up in keeping his father alive and trying to sort out who and why someone wants to hurt him and his father. Tucker finds himself working hard to keep up with the demands of his job and keeping Elliot alive, but the one thing both men know for sure is that when push comes to shove they've got each others backs.

J. F. Harding was the narrator for this installment of 'All's Fair' and he's another new to me narrator and once again my 'things I listen for in an audio book' list was solidly ticked off. I got the consistency I look for, individuality and uniqueness in character voices, expressiveness in the voices that was appropriate to both the characters and situations. 

'Fair Play' was a 5 star read and as an audio it still gets 5 stars from me.

It may have only been a 'Fair Game' but it was an awesome story...
Fair Game - Josh Lanyon,Sawyer Allerde

It's been a few years since I last read this book and now that I've got myself equally entrenched in the world of audio books it seemed inevitable that Josh Lanyon would be one of the authors that I'd want to revisit on audio and her 'All's Fair' series is one of my favorites.

'Fair Game' is the first book in this series and even though I've read it more than once I simply couldn't resist listening to it on audio. 'Fair Game' is a mystery with a solid romance to it as well. Elliot Mills has had to change careers after getting shot and teaching history seems like a safe profession...until students start going missing and turning up dead getting Elliot involved when he's asked by his father to find the missing son of a friend. Things get complicated when Special Agent Tucker Lance crosses paths with Elliot. They'd been partners and lovers back when Elliot got injured and things didn't end well.

I loved this story back when I first read it and listening to the audio book narrated by Sawyer Allerde has only allowed me to enjoy it all over again. His narration was solid and very nicely ticked all of the boxes on my 'things I like in an audio book' list. His was consistent, his voices were expressive and added depth of emotion to the story making things even more intense at time and I love a story that keeps me on the edge of my seat and my heart pounding with anticipation...so it was definitely a win for me.

And this folks is why I've missed Josh Lanyon...
Stranger on the Shore - Josh Lanyon

I've had this one for awhile now and when I saw that it was on audio I decided that audio was totally the way to experience this story and damn! was I right.

 

Josh Lanyon has created one hella' awesome story with this one. 'Stranger on the Shore' is far more mystery than romance, now that doesn't mean there's no romance because there is one. But overall this story focused more on the mystery that was going on and while I like me some romance it doesn't have to be there all the time and given how well crafted the rest of this story was I'm good with it all.

 

Once again I'm a little late to the party with this one so rather than try and re-invent the wheel or in this case the 'rave review' I'm going to take the lazy way out and simply say "There are some awesome reviews out there for both sides of the argument...love it or leave it, but you can add me to the list of I loved this from start to finish". Jeremy York was the narrator for this thriller/mystery/romance and while this was my first time listening to this narrator, I'm hoping it won't be my last. I really enjoyed the listening experience. Mr. York nailed the voices for me. They were consistent, expressive, unique and very suited to how I imagined the characters would sound.

 

Listening to this audio book felt very much like how I imagine it would feel to listen to an old time radio program as my parents and grandparents did back in the day.

 

While I'm sure this was due in part to the strong influence that the book 'The Great Gatsby' and the 1961 song 'Stranger on the Shore' had on one of the MCs. I think it was more strongly influenced by the wonderfully crafted noir story stylings of Josh Lanyon and the superb narration of Jeremy York...you can be sure that this is another audio book that will be on my repeat list.

Stranger on the Shore by John Lanyon $1.99
Stranger on the Shore - Josh Lanyon

Twenty years ago, little Brian Arlington was kidnapped from his family's Long Island estate and was never seen again. The trail went cold, but investigative journalist Griff Hadley has always thought there was more to the story—much more. When the Arlingtons' patriarch invites him to stay at their estate to research his true crime book, Griff can't say no. It's the story of a lifetime.

 

But not everyone is happy about Griff's presence. Relatives and staff alike regard him coldly, including Pierce Mather, the Arlingtons' attractive lawyer, who is more than a little wary of Griff's motives.

 

When a stranger shows up claiming to be the long-lost Brian, Griff and Pierce are united in their suspicions. Startled to have found an ally in the buttoned-up lawyer, Griff soon realizes it's hard to keep a professional distance. Even in the midst of a groundbreaking investigation, even in the face of a shocking family secret…
