Publisher's Summary

Carter

Relationships - who needs 'em? As a personal-assistant-extraordinaire to one of the top PR firms in Los Angeles, I've dedicated most of my life to errand-running and people-pleasing. But when it comes to men, as much as I love to please them in the bedroom, I'm way too busy to give more than that. Fortunately, as far as my options go...well, let's just say I'm used to getting what I want, whenever I want it.

Unless your name happens to be Sawyer Burke.

I haven't been in Fever Falls long, but the more time I spend here, the more intrigued I've become by the guy with the sexy auburn locks and the no-nonsense attitude. He plays the quiet, bookish part well, but he's got a problem - I have a talent for reading people, and if there's one thing I'm certain about, it's that there's a wild sex-beast hiding under his clever facade. He thinks screwing around is all a big game to me, but games can be fun, right?

Sawyer

I've always been a relationship guy. I never understood the urge to bed a different guy every night. But it hasn't worked out well for me. The one time I let my guard down with a guy, he crushed me. Broke me. That's not something I'm eager to risk again, so I focus on my friends, my brother, and my bookstore. Really, it's better for me. I'm not the kind of guy most men want anyway.

Unfortunately, I can't get Carter James out of my head. I told myself I hate him - and I should. He's everything I'm not - loud, sassy...and more than a little annoying. But I want him too, and he's made no secret of wanting me. I refuse to get caught up in one of his games, but I'm also learning there's more to Carter than meets the eye. He unleashes something inside me I never knew was there - this dominant sex-god that somehow makes me feel more like me than I ever have.

I can't let myself fall in love with him. Easier said than done. Carter challenges me in ways I didn't know I needed. What we share becomes a game of sorts, but not the kind I first thought, and the longer we play, the more likely it is that the losers will be our hearts. We should stop. We should know better. But even if there's the unlikeliest chance that we might win - well, then - game on.

Game On is part of the Fever Falls series but can be listened and enjoyed on its own.

Really good story and performance

This book is major 🔥🔥🔥, major 😍😍😍 and lots of dirty talk and sexy rough sex.

I loved the 2 MCs and thought they were great together and had great sexy chemistry. Of course I love the whole crew of other characters. They are a lot of fun and the best group since the Metropolis series. Riley and Devon always seem to work magic when they write together. It always turns out fabulous. They are good writing pair.

The plot for this one was interesting but I do still think book 1, 3 and 4 are better. For the most part though it was great. I loved how it ended. I'm looking forward to reading the next one.

Great series
1. Fired up = 5 stars
3. Whiskey Throttle = 4.5 stars
4. Royal = 5 stars
5. Game On = 4 starts
I apparently missed #2 so cant comment on that yet.

Michael does a great performance. (4.5) He puts emotion into it and I could tell the difference between the 2 MCs though it isn't a huge difference. Carter just sounded a little lighter in tone. The female voices arent the greatest though I've heard worse. Michael does best when there is an obvious difference like in the brief appearances of the Prince from the UK.

Possible spoiler below















Obvs the mother was a downer as was the whole distance thing but that goes to advance the plot so that didnt really trouble me. The part that made me leave off a star was the whole insecurity cause of the ex bf. I sorta understand he was hurt and cautious but obvs this guy wasn't awful like his ex so I was kinda yelling forget the past gees. Then their whole were exclusive but not together situation made me roll my eyes at first but after awhile it got old.

Chapter 5 and 33 mixed up and disappointment

Not sure how or who to submit a complaint to but chapter 5 is actually chapter 33 and chapter 33 is actually chapter 5. To say the least it pissed me off because going into what I thought was chapter 5 and being in shock by suddenly hearing I was on chapter 33 and not responding quickly enough to stop the playback I was abruptly hit with a major spoiler for the whole damn book. I couldn’t let that go against my reviews because it’s not the authors or narrators fault this occurred but either way I'm still very disappointed in audible to release something with such a huge mix up.

Loved it!

Saturgays...what a great thing! I have loved all the characters of Fever Falls. Each story in the series has really great characters and the story lines are all different. Michael Pauley brings them to life perfectly! Don’t miss this series!!!

Back in Fever Falls

I always know what I’m going to get when I head back to Fever Falls. Hot guys and sweet love stories. This is book five in the series and I love it as much as I did the previous four. I’ve watched the characters evolve and I knew at the end of the last book that things were going to get interesting for Sawyer and Carter. I wasn’t wrong.

Carter James has a reputation for enjoying hook-ups. He’s always up for a good time but doesn’t worry about lingering doubts. Doesn’t focus no long term deals. He’s got a good thing going and has a fun time so why worry?

Sawyer Burke has watched Carter from afar, admitting he’s attracted but not letting himself go further because he’s not interested in just being another one in a line. He’s also been burned in the past and self-doubt plagues him.

When the two men wind up alone in a ski chalet in Canada I figured sexy times, right? I love forced proximity as a trope but quickly discovered there were going to be more conversations than hooking up. Talking is good. In the men’s case, it works to their advantage. Both admit some vulnerability, trusting the other man not to use that knowledge against him.

At the core, this book is a love story. Two men who begin a relationship (a term I use lightly) as a way to blow off steam and get on with their physical attraction. Neither expected things to become serious. Neither believed the other could come to love him. And just when the men are willing to admit their feelings, one is given the chance of a lifetime – but it means giving up the man he loves.

Ouch.

I had my doubts. I wondered how it could work. I knew it would, but I still had fears.

I got my happy ending, though, so that was good. I also got a whole lot of humor, as I’ve come to expect in these books. One morning Carter is having coffee with Serena. She’s an aging actress and her gay son is Carter’s boss. They are discussing enthusiastic lovers when Serena says:

“Oh, I imagine Jace rides him like some man beast and makes my little baby squeal like a gazelle being ripped to shreds by a lion.”

Carter retorts, “I want to gouge my eyes out.”

I kind of felt the same way but was also amused. So I had giggles, I had sniffles, and I had a great book.

Of course the series is narrated by the wonderful Michael Pauley who does a great job. He nails each character perfectly and does it flawlessly. Another fabulous listen.

Not my favorite of the series

The random jumps in timeline back & forth (e.g., chapter 33) didn’t make any sense or add any value to the storyline - they were annoying and detracted from the overall listening experience.

Ok

While I love the Metropolis series by these authors & this narrator, this, my 2nd foray into the Fever Falls series still failed to make me love it. I DNF’d the first, but after my 3rd listen to the Metropolis series decided to try this series again and it’s still meh. This book is ok. But it’s boring. It’s a lot of the same internal conflicts over and over, a slightly too slow burn on the guys getting together in person, and little escalation once they do.

I needed something more than what this was. This is “Two guys resist each other because they throw sparks & neither feels capable of entering or sustaining a relationship & one is confused about his sexual preferences. After they are forced to talk, they become friends and try out some preferences” and that works, it just needed not to stop there. (I appreciated that Sawyer & Carter were reasonable & adult in dealing with their jobs & locations, that’s not what needed to change.)

Crossover: There’s a fun ski trip where some Metropolis characters get snowed in with Fever Falls characters.

Steam: medium, mild kink for kinda sorta choking. M/M on page often enough to bump steam from low to medium but that is otherwise pretty straightforward & tame, while being pleasantly sweet for all the talk leading up to it. (Mild spoiler: I was looking forward to seeing Sawyer get his dom on and… that stalls out.
/end Spoiler)

Narration: Probably the main reason I finished this book was the narrator, even if he had to recycle Derek’s voice for Carter.
