Raised to become alpha of the Yafenack pack, Samuel Goodwin dedicates his life to studying shifter laws, strengthening his body, and learning from his father. But despite his best efforts, Samuel can't relate to people, including those he's supposed to lead.
When Samuel meets Korban Keller, the son of a neighboring pack's alpha, he reacts with emotion instead of intellect for the first time in his life. Resenting the other shifter for throwing him off-balance, Samuel first tries to intimidate Korban and then desperately avoids him. What he can't do is forget Korban's warm eyes, easy smile, and happy personality.
When a battle between their fathers ends tragically, Samuel struggles to lead his pack while Korban works to break through Samuel's emotional barriers.

So much potential...
Any additional comments?
I love this series! Also, both Cardeno C. & Charlie David are favorites. [I've listened to Perfect Imperfections 5 x since sept., and the other two mate books are multiple listens] Sadly this book doesn't really start until half way through. Lots of great details/characters never really get fleshed out and then it is over! I think there is potential for an Excellent story here, but it needs a good editor to facilitate a major rewrite and more pages. The cover art & music both add to the book, and hopefully new entries into this series will be at least 4star offerings. C.C. & C.D. usually vary between good & great - unfortunately this one doesn't live up to their potential and is just OK.

In Your Eyes
What did you love best about In Your Eyes?
The connection Korbin and Samuel shared.
What did you like best about this story?
The way the first half of the first half of the book played out, Korbin and Samuel growing up, growing stronger and even though Samuel didn't realize then, growing closer.
Have you listened to any of Charlie David’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have and it's just as good as any others he has narrated. He's a great story teller.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
It was, but I had to split it over a couple of days.

Korban Keller is just 11 years old when he finds his True Mate. The problem is, young Samuel Goodwin doesn't recognize what it is he is feeling. He knows that there is something about Korban that throws him off, he just doesn't even consider a mate bound. After all, mating is usually a male and a female, so Samuel doesn't consider his mate might just be a man. Over the years Korban remains steadfast to his bond with Samuel, biding his time until Samuel comes to realize their destiny. When a tragedy forces Korban into Samuel's life, ready or not, it's time to learn how strong their bond truly is.
Another intriguing Shifter story from Cardeno C. I really enjoyed how this story showed the guys meeting as children and how they grew up, one knowing who they were and who they would become, while the other did not. Samuel grows into a strong, fierce alpha, completely unaware that the guy from the neighboring pack with the blue eyes that sets him on edge is his mate. Korban is steadfast and resilient, knowing that eventually Samuel will realize what they are meant to be. They have to go through a lot of heartache before the bond is formed and the first half of the book goes through that part of the story.
There was a bit of mystery and suspense in the storyline surrounding Samuel's fathers death, and I loved how all that played out, how it only strengthened their bond. Little things like the mating and what that entailed, how each shifter grew stronger once they fully realized what they were to each other, it all came together perfectly to create a passionate love story for Korban and Samuel.
Charlie David is back to finish out the series and I think I have figured out why I adore listening to his audio performances. I've watched him in several movies, read books he has written and narrated, listened to dozens of audio's from him and I think it's the fact that I can envision him while he is talking. Not only that, he gives each character their own voice, their own tone, and it is unique to them and usually encompasses exactly how that character is written by the Author.
Definitely a must listen, the entire series is. I believe these books are listed as stand alones, but I would recommend reading or listening in order as there are characters that weave through all the stories. If you start at the beginning you will better understand the characters, the packs and the time lines that are all woven together.
