Publisher's Summary

Going home digs up bad memories, so it's something Bureau of Special Investigations agent Cooper Dayton tries to avoid. When he's guilted into a visit, Cooper brings along Oliver Park, his hot new werewolf partner, in the hopes the trip will help clarify their status as a couple...or not.

When Park's keen shifter nose uncovers a body in the yard and Cooper's father is the prime suspect, Cooper knows they're on their own. Familial involvement means no sanctioned investigation. They'll need to go rogue and solve the mystery quietly or risk seeing Cooper's dad put behind bars.

The case may be cold, but Park and Cooper's relationship heats up as they work. And yet if Cooper can't figure out what's going on between them outside of the bedroom, he'll lose someone he... Well, he can't quite put into words how he feels about Park. He knows one thing for sure: He's not ready to say goodbye, though with the real killer inching ever closer...he may not have a choice.

Contains mature themes.

Too Many Secrets

The problems with the writing are numerous, but are relatively easy to overlook. It's full of telling, rather than showing, which I found really irritating. There are a lot of secrets between our heroes. This has grown into more of a problem because they've been dating for a few months, and yet they don't seem to actually have discussions. Oliver is completely closed off, which I find more and more grating. I could go deeper, but I just don't have the energy. I'll delve in after a second reading. Same narrator as the first book, and I couldn't stand it. Sounded like someone announcing the news or reading the phone book.

It's Complicated

performance: the narrator isn't bad. He just doesn't "do voices." He reads well and clearly and with good intonation. There just aren't different voices for different characters. the story: the biggest problem in this series is Cooper, the main character. He is a selfish man, parsimonious in his trust and affection. A habitual liar. Given to lashing out in fear and anger. His back story doesn't justify it. As a male romantic lead...he's awful. But he's a good narrator. He tells the story well, and the story is interesting. I read the books before I listened to them, and I'm still somewhat puzzled by why I like them when I don't really like Cooper. I liked this, but I can absolutely understand why someone might not. That makes for a rotten recommendation, but there it is.

So much better...

The narrator is so much better, which makes the story that much better. I am slowly but surely falling in love with Oliver and Cooper. Meeting Cooper's father and brother and the mystery that unfolds was great listening.
