Publisher's Summary

Usa Today best-selling author Ella Frank continues the story of Alexander Thorne and Sean Bailey in Breaking News.

Xander

Sean Bailey, the older brother of my lifelong best friend, has always been a surly, temperamental pain in my ass. But sometime during the last few weeks, I’ve gone and fallen head over heels for him. 

Gruff and charming, charismatic in his own way, I’ve found myself looking past my preconceptions and discovered a whole new side to Detective Dick - a side I could fall in love with.

But life isn’t always easy - it can change course in the blink of an eye. Sometimes for the good and sometimes for the bad. I know this because last night I experienced both sides.

I went to Sean for help in guarding my body; what I didn’t expect was for him to steal my heart.

More Sean & Xander!

This picks up where the last book ended, so it’s best if you read/listen to the first book. We get to see Sean & Xander’s relationship develop more. Getting more defined, getting deeper. Lingering and newer issues are presented and addressed. And then we wait for the last book because it ends in a cliffy because Ella Frank likes to test us. Lol. Charlie David, the way he narrates is so on point, he gave this book life. Excellent job.

Great story and Charlie really brings it to life.

I love Xander and Sean, this book starts off exactly where the last one ended. Ella has brought many characters to life and there has not been one that she hasn't made me fall in love with. Charlie David is a great choice, he gives each of these guys a voice that truly brings them to life. I could listen to him narrate all day.

Sean and Xander

This is book 2 in the Prime Time series and in all honesty, it was kind of a quick read. I read it in less than a day. Book 1 contained all the drama, the buildup, the big OMG moment. This book focused more on the aftermath. It was slower paced than book 1 with a lot of the book spent with Sean and Xander dealing with their emotions about not only what happened, but for each other. We get to see more of Sean's sweeter side and watch him try to share his "hobbies" with an allergic to outdoors Xander. It was utterly adorable. By the time you make it to the almost end you are feeling pretty good about Xander and Sean's relationship and its solidity. Then it happens...The Ella Frank punch to the gut cliffhanger that has you swearing after you turn the page and that's all there is. I have a feeling much of the last book in the series will be dealing with this particular plot development. I'm hoping these two are strong enough to weather the storm together instead of apart. I guess we won't find out until Headlines releases in late September. Damn cliffhangers Now the narration: Charlie David did this book justice. He had distinctive voices for each character and when the steamy bits came about he really shined. I swear I felt myself blushing while listening in my car on the way to work. I would def listen to more of this narrators work.

Fabulous!

Ella writes a great M/M story and Charlie brings it to life. Sean and Xander are super sexy in print and that much hotter in audio.

I can't wait for Headlines!

Breaking News is Sean and Xander in the aftermath of the "incident". Learning more about each other and dealing with the trauma is taking a lot out of Xander. Overwhelming guilt and new found feelings are making Anchorman crumble. Good thing Detective Dick is around, I mean, Sean. While Detective Dick is still off duty, sweet, sexy, and romantic Sean is full present in Breaking News. Follow these two like a desperate paparazzo and watch their relationship flourish. But beware, the doubts and nerves with make your stomach uneasy. I can't wait for Headlines!

My Anchorman and his Detective

I love this guy's so much. Ella, thank you for bringing them to us. And David Charlie!! You're the best at bringing this guys to live. I seriously can't wait for the final book in the trilogy. So excited!! I really recommend this audio book. You'll enjoy it however you want whenever; for me, it made my rush hour/traffic jam easier to deal with !

And the love story continues

Ella Frank and Charlie David have paired up again to bring part 2 of the series. Sean is recovering from his injuries sustained from saving Zander's life. Zander is recovering from the trauma of having been stalked and watching the man he loves almost die. The chemistry between these men who have known each other for most of their live, only to fall in love with each other, is undeniable. Now to get everyone else on board with it....

Cliffhanger

These books are fantastic but cliffhangers. Very disappointed you can not get the 3rd book due to some problems. I would suggest not starting until the 3rd book is available.

All the Feels!!

Charlie David’s narration was so fantastic for this series, and it definitely continued into this book. I loved his voice for Sean and Xander. They really matched what I had in my head as I read the books first. He did an amazing job on this narration! Things were really getting good in the second book of the Prime Time series. At the end of book one I was left saying “I need to know what happens next”! Well, next arrived and we were thrown right back into the action! We return with Sean having been injured while protecting Xander in his role as his bodyguard. While Sean takes his injury and recovery in stride, Xander has a harder time reconciling the events of his stalker and Sean being injured while saving his life. I have to say, I really loved how the next chapter of Sean and Xander’s relationship unfolded. They had some real conversations that made my heart melt a bit. Sean and Xander are what the expression “everything happens for a reason” means. They were brought together at this time after so many years of knowing each other for a reason. Sean is full steam ahead in his feelings about Xander. As you would expect from this author, the sexy times between Sean and Xander really start to heat up to epic hotness levels. This chapter of Sean and Xander had so many emotional peaks, it’ll keep you on your toes. Falling for his brother’s best friend and ex-boyfriend couldn’t come without snags right? I can’t wait to see how this resolves itself in the conclusion.

Even better the second time around!

I had the chance to read Breaking News when it came out and I loved it. Listening to it narrated by Charlie David somehow made it even better, though. Please note that Breaking News is a direct continuation from Inside Affair and you absolutely need to read them in order. If you haven't read the first book, what are you waiting for? You're so missing out. I loved Xander and Sean together, their chemistry is out of this world and they just fit so well together, despite being so different. It was great seeing them grow even closer in this book. Of course, it doesn't hurt that they're hotter than hot when they're in close proximity to each other. ;) Charlie David was one of the first narrators I ever listened to and he's still one of my favorites. His voice is smooth and pleasant and his delivery is pretty straightforward and captivating. While Breaking News doesn't exactly end in a cliffhanger, it's obvious there are going to be quite a few things to deal with in Headlines, the last book in the series, which will be coming soon. This book was sexy and fun with some low-angst to move things along. I loved their trip, seeing Xander so far out of his comfort zone and their newfound closeness, and can't wait to see how things will play out in book 3.
