Revived, The Dungeon Black Duology, Book 2 (An Upending Tad Spinoff: Max and Sean) By: Kora Knight Narrated by: Michael Dean

"What an emotional roller coaster ride!" Lesetiger on Revived.

From the blurb:

Love unearthed his heart from the cold, hard ground. 

Now comes the fight to revive it. 

Love. Just when Max Kelley thought he’d eradicated it from his life for good it snuck back in, in the form of his beautiful new sub, Sean. Something that Max is far from happy about. In fact, he fights it tooth and nail. Having his world decimated was hell on earth, an experience he’d go to any lengths to avoid repeating. Problem is, while his head is determined to protect his heart, his heart can’t stop thinking about Sean. 

Sean, his perfect sub, his perfect match, his perfect everything. Which makes him that much more of a threat. Were Max to claim him and then lose him, the devastation would be far greater than even Kevin’s death. So, in order to ensure his heart and soul stay intact, he must once again eradicate love from his life. Eradicate Sean from his world. But Sean is a scrapper, just like Max, and refuses to give up without a fight. In their final showdown of fiery passion and wills, whose heart will come out in one piece? 

Warning: This erotic, gay, BDSM romance contains intensely explicit sexual scenes both inside and out of the dungeon. 

Note from the author: In keeping with the promise I made to my Upending Tad devotees, I've included a small side story with Tad and Scott in book 2 where we delve a bit further into the developments of their relationship, and all the wonderful ways they've been keeping each other's hearts pounding. So, be prepared for two more character point of views! Tad and Scott aren't going anywhere. XXO

Lesetiger's Review:

After listening to "Unearthed", I couldn't wait to listen to "Revived". What an emotional roller coaster ride!

Kora Knight has a terrific writing style that absolutely won me over. I could totally connect with her characters that she created in depth.

I adore Sean, who has the strength to fight for both of them over and over again - until it's almost too late. And I also love Max, who has been very affected by his past and I can really understand him to some extent. He has built high walls around his heart and therefore often comes across as cold-hearted. But what Max needs most urgently is love.

It takes damn good friends who are able to tear down the walls. But what are friends for!
In the end, Max has to hope that it's not too late.

Wow, what an impressive story! Very entertaining, very emotional, very sad at some points, but also exciting and full of love. What I also very enjoyed were the appearances of Scott and Tad, which I was happy to see.

I loved the audiobook, and that was not only because of the author, that was also because of the narrator. Michael Dean delivered a brilliant performance. He knocked it out of the park.

He found the perfect voices for Sean and Max. He understood and lived the emotions and he brought this story to life in a phenomenal way.

Max and Sean will be with me for a while.

Highly recommended!
