Publisher's Summary

A former FBI agent is partnered with the enemy in this suspenseful male/male shifter romance from debut author Charlie Adhara.

Hunting for big bad wolves was never part of Agent Cooper Dayton's plan, but a werewolf attack lands him in the carefully guarded Bureau of Special Investigations. A new case comes with a new partner: ruggedly sexy werewolf Oliver Park. 

Park is an agent of The Trust, a werewolf oversight organization working to ease escalating tensions with the BSI. But as far as Cooper's concerned, it's failing. As they investigate a series of mysterious deaths unlike anything they've seen, every bone in Cooper's body is suspicious of his new partner - even when Park proves himself as competent as he is utterly captivating. 

When more people vanish, pressure to solve the case skyrockets. And though he'd resolved to keep things professional, Cooper's friction with Park soon erupts...into a physical need that can't be contained or controlled. But with a body count that's rising by the day, werewolves and humans are in equal danger. If Cooper and Park don't catch the killer soon, one - or both - of them could be the next to go. 

Contains mature themes.

Loved it

4 Blue Roses 4 Blue Flames Narrator Erik Bloomquist gave a good well-rounded performance filled with dramatic tension and vulnerable moments in this exceptional new wolf shifter suspense. Now this was so good: "Good, you feel so good.... Well, La-Di Fucking Da, Good for you , but what about me?.......Please, please Oliver, move, fuck me harder I want you so bad, take me fast and dirty!" a river runs through it GIF Yip, this was different than the usual. So far, no magic, no soul mates. Just, o' so you are a wolf, want to work with me, so we can catch some bad guys? Loved it, I will definitely listen to the rest of the series. I recommend this for when you want some shifter action without lots of inner drama. The plot was not predictable, but it definitely had familiar elements of a wolf shifter town, and it's secretive inhabitant. Happy Listening

Robotic Narrator

There's a whole lot to unpack here. I enjoyed the story, and I like the characters--so far. The problems with the writing are numerous, but are relatively easy to overlook. There's quite a bit of telling, rather than showing. There are a lot of secrets between our heroes, but that's understandable due to the nature of their budding relationship (I can see this as being irritating later on, though). I could go deeper, but I just don't have the energy. I'll delve in after a second reading. I listened to the audiobook, and the narrator was not good. Very robotic. It was very much like listening to someone announce the news. There was no difference between anyone's voices, and I often found myself confused about who was talking.

Took awhile

This story, although started off as a slow burn for me, has become one of my new favorite series and I can't wait to get the other books in this series. A simple story paced very well with a twist I almost didn't see coming. I didn't like being limited to Cooper's experience at first but watching Park through his eyes made me squeal with cuteness overload in a good way. Only downer is Bloomquist can't do some of the voices he attempts to which pulls you out of the story a touch. But it's only a few characters and they don't talk a lot so it's not too bad.

TERRIBLE MONOTONE NARRATOR

Will be returning the audio and read the book instead. The narrator's performance is intolerable.

Can’t wait for more

This book showed up on my “like others I have read” section and I’m glad it did. This story was awesome. It was able to explain how werewolves are around us and hiding while also explain how the BSI was established and run. The author was able to keep me in suspense, not knowing what might happen next to our hero’s, or what they might find out. I was excited to see there are two more books in this series as the ending seemed a bit too quick to wrap up. I didn’t like however the speed the narrator used to read. At times it was sure hard to keep up when they would slip from on character to the next, one exchange to the next. He was able to give more feeling in some situations then I was expecting which was helpful. I also didn’t enjoy how the same tone and pitch were used for most of the characters. It was hard to distinguish who was talking at given times and I had to go back and relisten to entire chapters to make sure I understood who said what and to who they it to. I hope the same narrator can come back for the next two books and add some voices and separation so the characters are easier to tell apart.

A good fit for FBI procedural, and Cooper's voice

Book 1 of my favorite m/m series is on audiobook?!?!?!?! I could not give Amazon my money fast enough. Pros: The matter-of-fact narration style works well for an FBI detective story. The voice of prickly Cooper, who feels off balance and on the defense for a good part of the book, feels right. As does the lighter, slightly amused voice for Park. I liked that they went with a relatively unknown narrator. Some narrators like Joel Leslie or Nick Russo are awesome but so ubiquitous within the genre that I can get the voices confused with the many books they've already done. Cons: For a few side characters' voices, the narrator speaks the dialogue quite quickly. It adds distinctiveness (some people really are 'fast talkers'), but I had to rewind a few times when I missed something. The two steamy scenes have the same matter-of-fact narration, and aren't overly sexy. I'm okay with that. This is meant to be a mystery, not erotica. But a little part of me misses the dirty voices of more popular romance narrators :) The next two books are much more romantic, and certainly sexier than book 1. I hope the narrator embraces that side of it if he continues. Everything else works great!

NARRATOR DOES NO JUSTICE TO THE STORYLINE

The author put together a good storyline except (perhaps I missed it when reading the intro) I was unaware that the story had strong homosexual content including vivid sexual content of this nature. I'm sure that is a good thing for many but did not fit my elective reading content well. We just fast forwarded and moved on. The narrator has a good voice for this work but reads so fast that sentences are often run on and it takes away from the story tremendously.

Decent Premise, bad execution.

I like the combination of m/m, mystery and the supernatural a lot, but none of the parts really delivered. The mystery just did not build up the suspense well enough to keep me engaged. Other books make you keep reading/listening because you want to know, this one did not quite manage that. The supernatural was okay but a bit bland. It is one of those werewolf stories with just too little wolf in them. The romance lastly suffered for me from having the protagonist more or less being fully the „partner at fault“ while Olliver was just a bit too perfect all in all. Romance needs both characters playing off each other and that just felt lacking. And I fear I really have grown very tired of the type of protagonist who ends up wallowing in his guilt. This was particularly off near the ending. It just comes across as cheap fishing for drama. Lastly, I think the story ended up too clumsy in its political statements. I think it pays off a lot better to make them more subtle. I just felt like rolling my eyes for being part of the choir being preached to. The narrator definitely did a good job though.

Great story...poor narration

If it were not for the fact that I had read this book prior to getting the audio version, I'm not sure I would have struggled through the horrific narration. I thoroughly enjoyed the story. Park and Dayton are mesmerizing...I remembered from reading. As I listened, I compared Bloomquist's reading style as that of listening to your computer read a book...drone and sad. But let me give you a spoiler though...as bad a Bloomquist's narration is...he gets better in the series...in fact, he finds his way and is much, much better. Perhaps this was his first book to provide narration for. Either way...it's a well written story...a fan of Adhara's style.

How things should work, but with werewolves

The problems faced by werewolves in this romantic thriller are pretty much straight from the headlines of how US cops treat black suspects - as aggressive, magically lethal fighting demons who are all the same and the only reason they haven’t killed yet is not having got around to it so brutally arresting or killing one is just fine, guilty or no. Unlike in our misogynoir reality, in this book the upper levels of the policing forces think that treating werewolves like US police treat black men is wrong. It shows how disrespectful digs at a group of people aren’t just “blowing off steam” from a stressful job, but are indicators that someone can’t be trusted with power & force over those they denigrate. Along the way, there’s a nice little mystery of missing werewolves with some hopes they will be found alive, and a cautious, slow burn romance. It was a nice book where the good guys get the guy and support from the top brass, so a fantasy… POV is all Cooper, the human. I’m more used to romances that trade off POV between leads, but mysteries often don’t. Once I realized it would be single POV, I settled into it. I recommend Wolf at the Door & plan to read the sequel. Steam: low smolder. Some naked details on page but much less graphic than average. Narration: Narrator speaks quickly. Generally I prefer that, but I already listen at a quicker speed so it took me a moment to adjust. I pondered slowing the rate but stuck it out and was fine. Pleasant voice. There were a few places where subtle shifts in audio [quality/pitch/resonance/cadence?] indicated patched in corrections but I VASTLY prefer that to hearing errors so no marks off for being slightly less than seamless.

Amazing! So glad this is a series! I liked the reader.

The story was great! The characters are endearing! Had me guessing from beginning to end. This was such a good “Cop” / murder mystery! It was quick and the romantics was light but satisfying! On top of that... WEREWOLVES! Loved it! I do recommend speeding up the reader on your device! Reader was great. Don’t let the other reviews stop you from reading this book!
