Audio Review: Breaking Cover, Life Lessons, Book 2, by Kaje Harper, narrated by J.F. Harding

Breaking Cover absolutely captivated me from the beginning. A great second book.- Lesetiger

From the blurb:

Sometimes one moment defines a man.

For homicide detective Mac, it's been a good year. Having Tony to go home to makes him a better cop and a better person. For Tony, it's been hard being in love with a man he can't touch in public. Evasions and outright lying to friends and family take a little of the shine off his relationship with Mac, but Tony is determined to make it work.

As the Minneapolis Police Department moves into a hot, humid summer, Mac is faced with a different challenge. A killer has murdered two blond women, and the police have no real clues. Mac hates to think that another murder may be the only way they'll make progress with the case. But when that murder happens, it hits close to home for Tony. And suddenly Mac faces an ultimatum: Come out into the sunlight and stand beside Tony as his lover, or walk away and live without a piece of his heart.

Lesetiger's Review:

The story of Tony and Mac continues. The two are happy so far, but their relationship has a shortcoming: Mac doesn't want to come out, because he fears that some of his work colleagues won't take it well. He also has to think about his daughter Anna, who spends a lot of time with her aunt Brenda. And Brenda is very religious.

I loved the story of these two. Mac and Tony are believable and sympathetic characters who struggle with the circumstances of their lives.

Mac is a homicide detective, and he is on the trail of a serial killer who suddenly gets way too close when someone in their acquaintance is murdered. Now it's up to Tony to decide how to proceed, and he makes a momentous decision that just seems right in this situation. I totally enjoyed both the development of the story and the development of the characters.

The author has a lively writing style that gets the emotions across to the reader well. Yes, it got emotional, and I was shaking and cheering along with the two of them.

The story absolutely captivated me from the beginning. This was due in part to the narrator. J.F. Harding did a phenomenal job of narrating. He has a talent for making the listener feel every emotion. He has a very pleasant voice and portrays each protagonist uniquely. And he managed to make an already very good book even better.

Highly recommended! And I'm really looking forward to the next volume!

Alyssagp's Review:

Detective Mac and teacher Tony were great characters to read. Their relationships and their struggles were palpable. 

The case Mac worked on was harrowing as well. I won’t spoil this book, but if you love heartache and action, you’ll enjoy this book. 

J.F. Harding does a great job narrating this book.
