Stopping to offer help one sultry summer night, Mason James is unprepared for the change that this simple act of kindness will bring. After giving an old man a ride home, Mason discovers a new, magical, and even dangerous world he cannot hope to understand. But he also finds Luc Toussaint and is intoxicated at first sight… and even the secret Luc protects won’t be enough to keep Mason away from the truth of his heritage and their love.
Okay, so, I adore this book. Seriously. I mean, how can you go wrong with a Mary Calmes book narrated by Greg Tremblay? In my opinion, there’s no way you can. They are such a dream team.
On his way home from work one evening, firefighter Mason James sees a man wandering along the side of the road and decides to give him a ride home. Only, the man is not who he seems. Upon arriving at the compound where the old man lives, things just get weirder and weirder for Mason. People are walking around naked, the old man keeps calling Mason by some other name, and noone wants him to leave. It’s just as well, since he really shouldn’t be driving due to severe exhaustion after working for practically 36 hours straight.
Then Mason sees Luc and is instantly wide awake. In more ways than one (oh ho ho). Basically, Mason experiences insta lust so hard and fast it’s overwhelming. He has no idea who Luc is, what his background is, or anything. But, it doesn’t really matter because Luc is irresistible. However, Luc has a secret. So does Mason, tho he doesn’t realize it. Mason’s life is about to change forever. Whether that is a good or bad thing is really up to him. If he can truly see Luc and accept him for who he is, then they may just have a chance.
As usual, Mary Calmes brings depth into even her shortest of stories and weaves such a rich tapestry for us. And, Greg Tremblay is simply magnificent in anything he narrates. In all of the many audiobooks narrated by him that are in my audio library, I don’t think I have heard him do anything less than a near perfect job. When paired together, an already colorfully alive book just makes your senses explode. Metaphorically, and in a good way, of course.
Do yourself a favor and treat your senses with this audiobook. It is well worth the money you spend on it.
