Publisher's Summary

Otto:

Seth Walker was my first love and I always swore he’d be my last. Even after he moved away our senior year in high school, we vowed to reunite after graduation. But when he suddenly broke things off without explanation and crushed my heart, it was my turn to run.

After a decade in the navy, I’ve finally come home ready to move on with my life as Hobie’s newest firefighter. Unfortunately, the minute I set eyes on the new sheriff in town, I know I’m screwed. Hobie’s top cop is none other than Seth Walker.  

Turns out, he’s come home too. And hell if he doesn’t have a lot of explaining to do. 

Walker: 

I thought I was doing the right thing when I walked away from Otto Wilde 10 years ago without an explanation. I was wrong. I also thought I could come back home without having to face my past mistakes. I was wrong about that too.

What I’m not wrong about: The fact that my heart catches fire every time I set eyes on the sexy man. The fact that I can’t imagine my life without him. The fact that things are still just as complicated now as they were then. And the fact that I have a lot of work ahead of me if I expect to win him back. 

Just when things start heating up between us again, a serial arsonist strikes and suspicion falls close to home. I already lost Otto to a secret long ago but I’ll be damned if I let another threaten to send our future up in smoke.

Because Otto Wilde is mine, and I don't plan on ever letting him go again. 

Each novel in the Forever Wilde series can be heard on its own or as part of the series. Fair warning, there will be nekkid man parts touching, meddling patriarchs, sweet second-chance love themes, and a dearly departed donkey named Debbie Gibson.

Excellent story and equally excellent narration!

Lucy took the cake with this couple! The story was so painfully beautiful!

-spoilers-

The way each story started with a letter from one to the other that was either sent or unsent really brought another element to this piece of the Forever Wilde series. You could feel the anguish and sorrow coming from them both over the years in the words they had left unsaid. The dedication they still felt in their hearts for one another even ten years later was so endearing and beautiful too.

Lucy is amazing at world building and character building. We see the characters grow from teenagers to adults in this story in a way we don’t always get to in others like it. The build up of the plot and suspenseful twist with the arsonist made this story complete in a way it wouldn’t have been able to be any other way. The ending was perfect in so many ways and is quite leading for yet another Wilde brother story.

Otto is a wonderful and family driven character whose had so much love and acceptance in his life, so the rejection from the man he loves most hits him incredibly hard. He knows real love, he sees it with his grandpa and Doc, and he wants that so badly but with only one person.

Seth is a wonderful man who made extremely hard life altering choices when he was barely an adult himself, to raise a child so she wouldn’t have nothing and no one. Such a bittersweet choice, one he’d never change and yet it hurt him and Otto terribly.

Michael Dean is, as usual, an amazing voice actor. He brings life to each and every character in the stories from main characters Otto and Seth to side characters Stevie and Beth.

His pacing for the story is always precise, his voice is always crisp and clear and he never has any stumbles or errors. Voice Actors never gets the recognition they deserve, this is so helpful for stay at home parents like me who enjoy their favourite stories while cleaning, cooking, or simply relaxing.

Michael voice is very lovely to listen to, and there is never a time where it sounds awkward or forced. He sounds like he genuinely enjoys the stories he reads, and his expressionate sounds in the more explicit scenes make it all so much better.

Looking forward to listening to more of this great series!

This one was difficult for me

I give this one between 3 and 4. This one had me even more annoyed than West book 1 and I was pretty annoyed at that one.

This book had a very interesting story and I kept wanting to read to find out what happens so it could of been a perfect book. Seth and Otto are great together and have great chemistry.

What almost turned me off were so many things. The desperate wife being ridiculous, the brother and parents being bigot assholes and even Otto and Seth both not saying what they knew. It was all so frustrating and I wanted to knock some sense into everyone.

I recommend Hudson's book and the novella flirt though

Michael Pauley did a great performance.

Oh I love a rough alpha gay man who helps people for a living so getting 2 in one book was PERFECTION for me! A Fire Fighter and Police Officer who have always loved each other, this is a second chance romance and I am in love. Great story line, great characters and hot hot hot too.

The narration was good. I feel like a broken record when I always say the same thing about the same narrator but he just gets TOO excited during the sex scenes for me and it ends up sounding like he is mad rather than in pleasure.

Forever Wilde #3

I love Second Chance romances, but I'm a hard sell with them too, especially when forgiveness is necessary. I require a lot of groveling, and that was definitely missing here.

Told in a dual POV the story begins with childhood sweethearts Seth Walker and Otto Wilde reuniting after more than a decade apart.

"Ten years. Ten years since I'd last seen the other half of myself, the boy I'd loved since I was eight years old and had fallen into the pond between our properties." -- Seth

There's very little explanation on Seth's part at first for cutting off all communication with Otto. Personally, the reason for their separation, which includes a whole lot of miscommunication, was problematic for me.

The chemistry between Seth and Otto is extremely apparent, but it just seemed that Otto forgave Seth very quickly and Seth got off a bit too easily (ha! No pun intended). The romance seemed to rely far more on Seth and Otto's young love, and the hot and heavy sex they have now they're reunited, rather than the development of the character's romance and their reasons for being together now. There just wasn't enough page time given to them getting to know each other as adults with all their baggage.

My biggest issue with Wilde Fire is, put simply, I am not a fan of ridiculous martyrdom behavior. First Seth's leading to their initial separation and then later Otto's in order to protect the arsonist.

Regardless of my personal peeves, this is a pretty intense and entertaining story. The suspense surrounding the arson was interesting and incorporated well into the rekindled romance. I love the supporting characters, and there's enough humor to simply make me a happy listener.

Wilde Fire was an entertaining listen. Michael Pauley uses distinctive character voices, which is impressive considering the large cast in the story. I found it an interesting choice on Pauley's part that even though both characters were raised in the same town, he doesn't use the same accents for both men, instead Seth's accent was more northern sounding, while Otto remained with a harder southern accent.

Recommended for those who like a Second Chance romance with lots of passion, a suspenseful side plot, a great supporting cast, and great narration who don't mind some miscommunication that's cleared before the HEA ending.

I'm really looking forward to Hudson's story and spending more time with the Wilde clan!

Otto and Seth...sigh

Lucy Lennox hit it out of the park again. I love this series! The family dynamics are amazing. The Wilde family is a family I want to join. This book has all the feels...Otto is so courageous and brave. Seth is sweet. Both have this incredible sense of valor that you just sit in awe of them. If you haven't started this series, you truly need to. Michael Pauley, I think I have typed your name more than my own in recent months, simply to let others know how great you are at your job.

Walker, Wilde Slap Slap.

Walker made a promise that why he got married.But what about the promise he made to Otto. Jolie gets piss about Seth dating Otto to be honest jolie is a bitch a serious bitch. he shouldn't have married her if he was going to take on a father figure and be called daddy, yet points out that he's her uncle. Truly confusing.. Drives me crazy that he makes it clear that he's tisha uncle and not daddy Jolie took advantage of Seth's heart.
spoiler Seth had sex with her WTF .

Yet he calls her his daughter a few times.
Otto so needs to fine someone else.
To certain extent Seth was a bastard. felt what Seth did to Otto was inexcusable
Otto pain was the heartbreaking moments in the story. begging the love of his life to come back. I think Otto is a huge idiot. for forgiven him so easy.
I love SETH but marrying jolie raising a kid sleeping with his brother baby mom turn his Wife.
Seth could have been a uncle without marrying her. oh wait medical. call bullshit he could have add her to his insurance as his niece.Hell if he trust Otto the Wilde's would have help her.

The plot was Walker broke wilde heart 10 years ago . Yet spoiler get together by the first 3 chapters. Sad i spent money on this what happened to the plot. Yet Walkers married. WTF. Otto should so make him suffer.
Leave supposedly the love of your life. Otto has no self respect for himself. He should had at least. Held out longer.
Walkers pissed at Otto for leaving. Walker has the nerve to say shit about Otto.When Otto went to help felix. Jolie used him like that..And Seth parents suck big time. MMC martyrs is a huge joke.
I think Otto should had dated someone in front of him let him experience Otto's pain. if i didn't need the book to complete the series. i would return this. Jolie tells seth that their kid see Otto before the fire.
Seth family they implied, he needs his ex wife to watch his niece and nephew's. homophobes much.
In the person that was a fire bug should have paid more. they should have been billed for it plus time in jail.

Not as formulaic as I thought it would be

So, normally by this point in a series, it begins to get a bit predictable. But it actually wasn't. It was a great second chance romance. I read another review that mentioned this was a cliff hanger. I feel like that person must not have listened to the same book that I did.

This story was a tiny bit formulaic, but there were elements you really didn't see coming. Every story in this series has been enjoyable. The Felix and the Prince book has actually been my favorite so far but all of them have had me listening to these books back to back. I kept telling myself, listen to something else then come back to the series. But I just couldn't.

I love the grandfathers. They are integral to each one of these stories to me. They bring the humor while showing you what love looks like as you grow older together.

As normal, Michael Pauley knocked the narration out the park. I love listening to him. Especially the smexy sexy scenes.

At any rate, this was a great listen. It didn't even register on my 'too much angst' meter. So I am looking forward to reading Hudson's story next.

Awesome series

This is one one of my favorite series.

This book especially. It has a great story with twist and turns and maybe a touch too much sex, but hey, that’s what got you listening in the first place.

And Michael Pauley does such a great job with the characters; I really enjoy his voice.

Thank you.
