I totally preordered all four books in this series and eagerly waited from them to release... I got this series on e-book... and was hoping for it to be narrated...
It was awesome...
Angel and his cop Gabe really set this entire series off on a grand scale... I loved Angel!!!
I absolutely loved the narrator... as I read this book before, so I really expected a lot from the narrator, as there is a lot of Spanish... Renard Pasquale nailed it!!! He transition from Spanish to English perfectly, and even narrated Angel with a Spanish accent... Perfection!!
Any fan of m/m romance need to have this entire series in their collection... One of the good ones... It has drama (gang/cop action); romance (smexy scene that leave you panting) and last but not least... a storyline (it's a series with reappearing characters).

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
There was too much sex and not enough character or relationship building so I'd have to say no...
What could Avril Ashton have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Make the men less emotional. Decrease the frequency of sex scenes. Actually show why these men are in love with each other beyond lust at first sight...
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
Somewhat. Some of the narrative was brought down by overacting on the narrator's part.
Could you see Love the Sinner being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
Well if they cn find an actor who looks and sounds like a younger Andy Garcia or a taller version of Antonio Banderas, then that guy can play Angelo. Gabe... I don't know.
Any additional comments?
I found out about Ellora's Cave not paying their authors the royalty they're due. If I'd known about that beforehand I wouldn't have purchased this title. I know there are 3 other books in this series and that they're much better than this book but I'm going to hold off on purchasing them until Ellora's Cave can sort themselves out.

Where does Love the Sinner rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Love the Sinner ranks amongst the most enjoyable books that I have listened to. This is gay "Mills & Boons" at its best!
What other book might you compare Love the Sinner to, and why?
Love the Sinner compares well with such books as, The Way It Is, by A J Thomas. Both involve seemingly impossible relationships between characters from the authorities and those outside the law.
Have you listened to any of Renard Pasquale’s other performances? How does this one compare?
I have read Renard Pasquale's narrations of all four of Avril Ashton's, Brooklyn Sinner, series. He brings all the characters to life with vivid vocal dramatisation, maintaining a high standard throughout.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Unconditional love has never been this hard!
Any additional comments?
Avril Ashton is able to spin a gripping story, filling out the different characters in strong and vivid ways making them believable. This makes the whole series of the Brooklyn Sinner, a memorable read. Highly recommended!
When I read a rec for this book I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. I loved the premise of the bad guy and the cop. I wasn't disappointed despite some things grating on me.
I loved the dynamic between the two, the hot sex, how much they loved one another and the backdrop for the story. Some of the side characters were great, Pablo, Kane and Angelo's mother. (I've happily downloaded Pablo and Kane's own stories ready to go.)
Make no mistake, this book is both HOT HOT HOT and it doesn't sugar coat the violence and who Angelo really is. That is a very readable/listenable combination.
Renard Pasquale is the perfect narrator too, the way he does the accents is just right - although Syren's accent is plain weird.
What I didn't like about it was the speed in which it went from first sight to love. I like a bit of build up. Gabe barely blinked before jumping into bed with Angelo the criminal and as a dedicated cop surely there would've at least *some* angst about it first, or at least after they first got it on, but no, it was straight to LOVE. Then Gabe goes bonkers about something that Angelo does, breaks it off, then five minutes later he's being all moody that Angelo made a decision without him when they weren't even together. He wasn't very consistent!
