    Mari´s Review: 

    *** Audible provided to Bayou Book Junkie in exchange for a fair and honest review.***

    This book was such a novel approach to the shifter genre. I absolutely appreciated the originality that the shifters in this story were more animal-like with limited, if any, interaction with humans. I loved how different it was from other shifter stories I read in that sense and how those differences accentuated the uniqueness of the relationship between Johnnie and Hugh. 

    I adored Greg Tremblay's narration of the story. His voice has a really pleasant timbre and the way he modulates his tone depending on the scene and how he does all the different characters'  voices, just adds up to the experience of listening to this fabulous story.   

    Definitely a book I'd love to read/listen to again as soon as possible!

    WLK Author Bio

    Cardeno C. - CC to friends - is a hopeless romantic who wants to add a lot of happiness and a few "awwws" into a reader's day. Writing is a nice break from real life as a corporate type and volunteer work with gay rights organizations. Cardeno's stories range from sweet to intense, contemporary to paranormal, long to short, but they always include strong relationships and walks into the happily-ever- after sunset.

    Cardeno's Home, Family, and Mates series have received awards from Love Romances and More Golden Roses, Rainbow Awards, the Goodreads M/
    M Romance Group, and various reviewers. But even more special to CC are heartfelt reactions from readers, like, "You bring joy and love and make it part of the every day."

    10 bits of random trivia, with Greg.

    1) I actually studied acting in college, along with opera; but got a degree in

    Computer Science.

    2) My recording booth itself is only 3’ x 5’ x 6’ . . . so when I read MM romance, I

    go INTO the closet.  Ironic, no?

    3) It takes between 5 and 7 hours of total production time with the finished

    manuscript to create 1 hour of final audio.  Fiction Audio reads at about 9800

    words per hour.

    4) In addition to voice acting, I have been a Whale Watching guide, a Paramedic,

    and a Farrier (shoeing horses)

    5) I rarely, if ever, listen to a complete book again once the production is

    finished.  By the time I am done, I’ve read the book to myself, read it aloud,

    and listened to it for editing… and I’m on to the next story.

    6) Anguish is the easiest emotion for me to portray, because a well-written

    script pulls you in, and it’s a completely one-person emotion – but it’s

    draining.  I have cried in the booth more than a few times.  Comic passages

    are the trickiest, because the proper timing and reaction between characters

    are essential.

    7) I drink an average of 1.5 liters of water per hour, while recording.  Average

    recording sessions are 2-4 hours long between breaks.

    8) As a kid, I lived with my family on a sailboat for a year.

    9) My personal record for most distinct voices in a single book is 73

    10) Coffee, Dairy and Alcohol are all bad for the voice. . . which means I have to

    moderate some of life’s greatest pleasures.  (not eliminate tho, I’m not crazy)
