Marc longs for a grand romance, but he doubts he'll ever be that lucky. Then he meets Darius, an arrogant tailor who pushes all his buttons. When Darius offers him a job, Marc hesitates - he needs a direction for the future, not another man who doesn't believe in relationships.
Darius lives by a few unbreakable rules: Never sleep with employees, fashion should be simple, and romance is for fools. Marc, with his shimmery sweater collection, makes him want to break every single one.
They quickly give in to desire, but Darius wants to protect himself, and Marc refuses to repeat past mistakes. It's only when they let go of assumptions that love has a chance to take hold.
excellent well tailored was perfectly
narrated outstanding one of the best
i have listened to. finally mark has found
This is probably the best, low angst/hot sex series I've ever read. Silvia Violet always does an amazing job with her characters and their relationships, and her creativity with the BDSM scenes is always top notch (Marc and Darius don't get as kinky as Thorne and Dash, but Darius has such a freakin' dirty mouth it adds a whole different spin to it).
Speaking of Darius' mouth - his curses are laugh-out-loud hilarious!
Truly a fantastic series, and this one is just a real treat... I'm so happy to see how Marc gets his happily ever after, he truly deserves it :)
**Also, 5 huge stars to Greg Boudreaux. He's always amazing, but outdoes himself with this series.**
Great story, plot, narrator. can be read alone. very entertaining with a happy ever after
Ok, so my title was cheesy but I really enjoyed the narration and by extension, the story.
Greg Boudreaux is so talented, I loved his transition from the brusque Darius to the nicer Marc. And the love scenes - Greg certainly brings the heat 😘
I enjoyed this book I hope these characters get another story the need to get married
It wasnt bad, but the whole story is kinda puched togther to fit withing the end of the second and third Thorn & Dash books, which kinda made it ruched and not as good as it could have been. And there isnt really much happening; they work, fuck and then they deside they like each other enough to date. Darius swears was funny but after a while you end up just rolling your eyes. I know this is more of a side story for Mark and Darious but I dont think it was really needed, the parts in the original series did explain pritty well what happened to them without the deeper parts. As I said, not bad but not good enought to make me love it. Think it was probably Gregs narration that really saved it. Keep up the awesome work Greg!
I am enchanted with the story, two souls who have been hurt before try to mend it. it's a great combination. I highly recommend this story
If you could sum up Well-Tailored in three words, what would they be?
Hysterical, fun and gripping
Who was your favorite character and why?
Darius, hands down! I think he's my long lost twin. Seriously, I thought I had the filthiest mouth but listening to the words Darius comes up with, my personal favorite is cock weasel, I laughed so hard. Aside from his brilliantly colorful vocabulary, he is fierce, commanding and loyal.
What does Greg Boudreaux bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
His narrations are like a movie for your mind. You can't see anything per say, but Boudreaux conveys each character in such a way that you can relate to them and their story.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Laugh, so hard. I think I might have pee'd a little. I did tear up toward the end momentarily, but this book was really meant to be somewhat light hearted, fun and extremely sexy.
Any additional comments?
While this is a book in the Thorne and Dash universe, you can listen or read it as a stand alone. I, like many others I'm sure, wanted Darius and Mark's story after the brief glimpse in the final TD series. These two have stunning chemistry, but both are still hung up on their less than stellar history with men. It's the magnetic chemistry they share that pulls them to each other at the start, and keeps them coming back for more, but as they spend more time together and get to know one another, it becomes a slow burning love story.
I will absolutely listen to this book again. Between the comic relief, Darius's never ending verbage and ability to turn anything into a curse, and the steamy romance, it's a favorite.
When I started this series I fell in love with Marc. He was such a driving force in the lives of those around him and it made me wish that he could finally find his forever. So this beautifully told story was like a dream come true.
Whereas with other novels where the MC's of other stories have little relevance to the current story this isn't like that. You get your fix of Thorne and Dash seeing in fact the sort of behind the scenes stuff that you don't get in their story. It's a very clever writing trick actually and Silvia does a superb job in twining all of it together seamlessly.
Darius' gruff exterior and shining inner beauty is perfectly captured and rendered by Greg's beautiful voice *seriously this narrator could read a grocery list and make it sound good*
Marc's surprising innocence is also framed in such a way that you seem less surprised and more protective of his heart which is such a thing of beauty it makes you want to sigh out loud.
Together these two create a story of risk, compromise and ultimately of true partnership it will warm your heart and put a grin on your face. I hope that this is not the last we see of all these characters because that would just be tragic. Enjoy :-)
I loved the Dash and Thorne trilogy and this book about Mark and Daruis was just as beautifully written and performed. Greg's voice is perfect for these stories.
I absolutely loved this story. I've been waiting for this to come out in audiobook rather than read it and it was worth the wait. Grumpy abrasive Darius is played so perfectly by Greg Boudreaux. His narration is a joy to listen to. Two wounded people learning to love again. Definitely one to listen to again.
