Audiobook Review: Fire and Flint (Carlisle Deputies #1) by Andrew Grey

Jordan Erichsohn suspects something is rotten about his boss, Judge Crawford. Unfortunately, he has nowhere to turn and doubts anyone will believe his claims - least of all the handsome deputy, Pierre Ravelle, who has been assigned to protect the judge after he received threatening letters. The judge has a long reach, and if he finds out Jordan’s turned on him, he might impede Jordan adopting his son, Jeremiah.

When Jordan can no longer stay silent, he gathers his courage and tells Pierre what he knows. To his surprise and relief, Pierre believes him, and Jordan finds an ally...and maybe more.

Pierre vows to do what it takes to protect Jordan and Jeremiah and see justice done. He’s willing to fight for the man he’s growing to love and the family he’s starting to think of as his own. But Crawford is a powerful and dangerous enemy, and he’s not above ripping apart everything Jordan and Pierre are trying to build in order to save himself...

I have to confess... I'm not really an Andrew Grey fan. His books mostly end up on the okay scale and I'm never first or even in line for his new releases. On the other hand, I am a huge fan of Greg Tremblay. He is an awesome narrator. And as I'm also a big fan of mystery and suspense novels I decided to give this book and series a chance.

Jordan Erichsohn's life is on track. He's in the process of adopting a special boy and has a job he really enjoys. That is until letters starts arriving threatening the life of the judge he's working for. Enter deputy Pierre Ravelle who's been assigned to the case to find the author to the letters and protecting the judge. The two starts working together to piece the puzzle together, and soon they both realise there is something more between them.

The love story between Jordan and Pierre was everything that I've come to expect from Grey. Fast paced to the point of insta-love. I liked them as individuals, but the meet-to-love was so quick and I just didn't believe in it. But then again, I didn't really expect any different either, hoped maybe, but not expected. The mystery part however I liked, I'm always a fan of those, and it was a nice break from the sweet, sweet love and sugar fest this book would have otherwise been.

Greg Tremblay is fantastic, amazing and wonderful - to say the least. I love to listen to his narrations - or performance of the books. He adds such feeling to it that it takes you to that place and that time. Walking alongside the characters, and fighting beside them. He makes you feel what they are feeling, in a way that just reading the words don't always do by their own. To keep it short and simple: pure perfection.
