Publisher's Summary

Florist. Psychic. Addict.
Laurence Riley coasts by on good looks and natural charm, but underneath lies a dark chasm that neither heroin nor lovers can fill. Sobriety is a pipe dream which his stalker ex-boyfriend is pushing him away from. Luckily, Laurence has powers most can only dream of. If only he could control them.
Aristocrat. Psychic. Survivor.
Quentin d'Arcy is the product of centuries of wealth, privilege, and breeding, and is on the run from all three. A chance encounter with an arresting young florist with a winning smile could make him stop. Laurence is kind, warm, and oddly intriguing, but Quentin's wild telekinesis and his fear of sex make dating a dangerous game.
When opposites attract, they collide.
Desperate to fix his rotting life, Laurence prays for aid and accidentally summons a fertility god who prefers to be called Jack. Jack is willing to help out for a price, and it's one Laurence just can't pay: he must keep Jack fed with regular offerings of sex, and the florist has fallen for the one man in San Diego who doesn't want any.
If they're to survive Jack's wrath, Laurence and Quentin must master their blossoming feelings and gifts, but even then, the cost of Laurence's mistake could well overwhelm them both. How exactly are mere mortals supposed to defeat a god?
Jack of Thorns is the first book in the Inheritance series and contains mature themes and events which may be distressing to some listeners. It has a low heat rating and an HFN ending.

12 Hours of waiting for something to happen

Would you try another book written by Amelia Faulkner or narrated by Joel Leslie?

I love Joel Leslie. I wanted to give up on this book several times but he kept me listening.

As for Amelia Faulkner, I'm on the fence. I loved the characters! I'm dying to know what happens with them. I know there's a long history with Banbury that we didn't seem to touch in this book and that was furiously frustrating. But the book just dragged and dragged and nothing seemed to happen which leaves me undecided about following up with the series. Perhaps I will read a summary of the next books instead.

Would you ever listen to anything by Amelia Faulkner again?

I don't think so.
