Sometimes to find love, you must first learn forgiveness.

A dozen years, 2,000 miles, and a law degree after high school, Rafi Steiner continues to harbor resentment toward Isaac Jones, his childhood bully turned NBA star. When Isaac appears at Rafi’s favorite restaurant acting like a long-lost friend, Rafi bluntly dismisses him.

But Isaac is tenacious and he has his heart set on the grown-up version of the boy he always wanted and never forgot. The way Isaac sees it, he and Rafi are perfect for each other, if only he could sink the most important shot of his life: his one shot at forgiveness.

Review by Barb – 5 Hearts: 

Make sure you’re not driving while listening to this audiobook because there’s going to be some pretty distracting and uber-hawt scenes disrupting your concentration. Hmm, on second thought, make sure you’re not in public either, because between the sexy scenes and the laugh-out-loud one-liners, those around you may question your sanity.

Rai Steiner is an out and proud gay man, living the life he’s always wanted in Emile City. Single, fun-loving Rafi by night is serious attorney Rafi by day. Picked on unmercifully throughout high school, he’s no longer that shy kid who didn’t fight back. And, even though twelve years have passed, he’s not likely to forget the torture he suffered at the hands of Isaac Jones, his principal antagonist.

So when Isaac shows up in his life again, Rafi’s first thought is to give him the cold shoulder. Or, wait, make that give him the deep-freeze shoulder. He positively hates Isaac, and all the bullying and hateful name-calling comes back to him in a rush.

But what Rafi doesn’t know is that the bullying was a cover-up for the weird feelings Isaac had whenever he spotted Rafi. Rafi was like an Isaac-magnet. Isaac wanted to be near him constantly and always found Rafi in a crowd, but because he didn’t know why, he lashed verbally each time they were near.

Isaac is now an NBA star basketball player—all six foot nine of him—and Rafi finds it hard to refuse when Isaac latches onto him, expressing how happy he is to see Rafi. Happy? Really? Rafi is confused but shoves him away. And yet the next morning, there’s Isaac in Rafi’s kitchen, making him breakfast as if it were a normal occurrence. Is Rafi losing his mind? Is there any hope of not hating Isaac? And what is it about that gorgeous, tall, sexy body that holds Rafi’s attention while Isaac is apologizing profusely?

This short audiobook is full of humorous banter, painful and joyful memories, and most importantly, a very sexy, very big (all over) man who is totally and completely head-over-heels in love with Rafi and refuses to take no for an answer. He needs to take his one shot at forgiveness and make sure he scores.

Narrator Robert M. Clark did a fantastic job with the vocalizations and with the timing for the snarky one-liners that are sprinkled throughout. The voice he gave the MCs was perfect for each character and completely different for each man. I did not want the story to end. Very, very much worth it to pick up the audio edition. And if you can’t, be sure to grab the e-book version.


Red River Audiobook

Red River: Pack Collection, Book 2

    • Written by: Cardeno C.
    • Narrated by: Nick J. Russo
    • Length: 3 hrs and 42 mins
    • Unabridged Audiobook
  • Release Date:06-21-16
  • Publisher: The Romance Authors, LLC

Two Alpha shifters join together to lead their pack and build a family.

Commitment, loyalty, and strength aren’t enough to make Wesley Stone’s birth pack accept an Alpha with a physical imperfection, even if it’s a meaningless mark. Putting the safety of his pack above his own wellbeing, Wesley trades himself for another Alpha and agrees to mate with a stranger in a mysterious, insular pack.

Alphas from Jobe Root’s family have led the Red River pack from the first day shifters walked the earth. Now the time has come for Jobe to fulfill his destiny, but to do that, he needs his mate by his side. Spiritual, easygoing Jobe reveres Mother Nature and trusts in fate, yet he can’t help being nervous about how his mate will react to his new life in Red River, his new life with Jobe.

Two Alphas with contrasting personalities, different upbringings, and divergent beliefs come together for the good of their packs. But to stay together, Wesley and Jobe must see beyond the surface and embrace every facet of themselves and their union.

Review by Barb – 4 Hearts: 

Wesley Stone embraced being an Alpha from birth. He knew he’d one day succeed his Alpha, who happened to be his uncle, and yet time kept going by and there was no indication that he’d be chosen. Since he was the only Alpha in the Purple Sky pack, other than his uncle, he couldn’t figure out why. After all, they wouldn’t deny him just because of the ugly birthmark he had on his abdomen, would they? Well, he finds out they would indeed when he’s told he’s been “traded” to the Alpha of the Red River pack in exchange for one of their Alphas.

Though his heart is broken, he accepts the decision and vows to make the best of it. What he didn’t know until well after he’d arrived and met his husband-to-be, Jobe Root, was that Jobe considered him more than just a mate—he considered him a gift. When Wesley finally accepts all that Jobe reveals about the pack, their traditions, and his mate status, he finds a measure of contentment—that is, until he learns the greatest secret of all and learns just why he has that birth defect.

It’s hard to do justice to this sweet, shifter story without giving away spoilers. Suffice it to say, I was charmed by this heartwarming tale and impressed with the depth of the story and the complexity of the characters in such a short package. The audio is only three-and-three-quarter hours, and I found myself constantly listening to the voice of Nick Russo, who did an outstanding job with this audiobook. The voices were varied, the pace perfect and the overall narration interesting. Kudos to both the author and the narrator for this one. If you enjoy shifters, by all means consider this one—and definitely in audio format.
