Publisher's Summary

A Marine with honor.

After surviving a horrific chemical attack that turned him into a metahuman, Captain Jamie Callahan got a second lease on life. For three years he’s been working for the Metahuman Defense Force and leading Alpha Team - all against the wishes of his family. The job requires his full dedication, so it’s no surprise Jamie doesn’t have time for a relationship. An enticing one-night stand with a gorgeous stranger is all it takes to show Jamie exactly what he’s been missing. When a mission to take down a terrorist cell brings that same stranger back into his world, Jamie’s life gets complicated.

A soldier with secrets.

Staff Sergeant Kyle Brannigan was only looking to relieve some stress after a long mission. He didn’t know the hot guy he picked up at a bar was the leader of the MDF’s top field team. When Kyle and his partner get seconded to Alpha Team to help fight a terrorist threat, he has to balance his desire for Jamie against his duty to keep his secrets safe. That gets harder and harder to do amidst regulations both are tempted to break.

Two men trying to survive.

Giving into passion could cost both their careers. Abiding by the rules will only result in heartache. An attack on MDF headquarters brings with it a choice Jamie and Kyle can’t escape - duty, or love?

Intriguing start to a series!

This book introduces a team of Metahumans all of whom have their own unique powers. The team previously fought together as Marines until they were turned into Metahumans and they still fight together as an elite team now but for a branch of the armed forces specifically for Metahumans. The author did a great job of world building although I will admit that at times I got a bit confused between the team members as there are quite a few to get used to and sometimes they are referred to by their real name and sometimes by their code name. As I listened to this as an audiobook (brilliantly narrated by Greg Boudreaux) I do wonder if the characters would have sunk in easier if I’d read the book instead of listening to it as I take information in very differently that way. Having said that I found all the members of Alpha Team really intriguing and likeable and I have a huge feeling that they’re going to grow on me more and more as the series progresses and we find out more about them. The action was fast paced with a great storyline that will carry on into the next book. The romance in this book was between Jamie, Alpha Team’s captain, and a newcomer to the team called Kyle. They hook up as a one night stand to find themselves working together the next day and as Jamie is Kyle’s captain that makes any relationship between them against the rules. But the attraction they had to each other is still there strongly and they find themselves unable to resist temptation. I loved watching the relationship between them unfold even though I did find their particular kink a bit uncomfortable as it’s not my thing. I will definitely read or listen to book 2 as I think this is a series will grow and grow on me!

Fantastic audio!

This series is one of my favorites, and I was so excited to hear Greg was going to record the audio as he is one of my favorite narrators. And man, he knocked it out of the park! This book is an excellent start to the Metahuman Files series, and Greg brought Alpha Team to life like only he could. Each character has a distinct voice and the accents are on point (Greg's Alexei.. yes please!). I found myself unable to stop listening, even though I have read the book several times before.. and I am sure I will be listening over and over too. I hope we get to experience the rest of the series in audio in the future.

Metahuman Files #1

Great story with interesting world building and a terrific narration, this dual POV sci-fi romance hit all the bright spots for me from the characters, to the plot, to the final moments - it was all really, really good. There was also plenty of action, both out of and in between the sheets.

Then add it being a fun listen on top of everything else and you can color me happy. Greg Tremblay, under his Greg Boudreaux pseudonym (for sexier titles), keeps a wide array of characters easy to follow along with while making all the good parts even better.

I especially loved that the story doesn't have a cliffhanger ending, even though it definitely opens up a series.

I'm really looking forward to the next book in the series, In the Ruins.

Came for Greg Boudreaux

I am a fan of the narrator, and that's the main reason I picked up this title. I actually liked the non-romance plot of the story, and the narrator is brilliant as always. But I just got tired of all the sex scenes.

Me listening, looking at the play time in the app: Really? Another one? So they're just going to be having vigorous meta-human style sex for the next half hour?

I would listen to more of the series because the team was cool. I want stories about Katie and the others, so the author does well establishing the world. When an author introduces a team like this, I want to know about the entire team, not just the gay or straight ones. This author seems to be about the MM and not much else as she focuses on the romances of a pair of adopted brothers on the team.

If you like Greg, you know how awesome he is. If you need more than just Greg's awesome voice and want awesome content to go with it... rate your expectations accordingly to whether or not you can stand long, drawn out sex scenes that involve a lot of delayed orgasms. Wasn't my thing, but it could be yours.

Awesome start to a new series

I loved this book. The team kind of reminds me of the Thirds in how they work together. They have all been through hell and are working to bring down all the bad guys. Loved that the team is backing them up as they grow and work on living together and finding love. Jamie and Kyle make a perfect couple. I can't wait for the next book in this series to come out in audio.

I love the entire series

They are some pretty explicit scenes if that's a problem for you. Hailey has created an intriguing world but I haven't quite figured out how they take so many showers if water is so dear.

Hardcore Porn, sprinkled with a little sci-fi.

The "Sci-fi, Meta-human" this novel is billed as, is merely fluff page filler between the extra graphic hardcore porn segments. I love a good gritty fetish porn as much as the next guy but... I never knew until now that it was possible to EXCESSIVELY overuse the word Cock. The Author used the word so much that I found myself skipping ahead so I wouldn't have to hear it beat into my ears over and over and over again.

Pleasantly surprised

This was a dangerously fun, very full story, much more than expected. Yes, there is many secty times but the actual world building is pretty impressive. I’m looking forward to reading more from the author! As always, Greg Bourdreaux is fabulous as well.

Много веселья, читайте два раза!

Excellent Series! Loved it!

I'm hit and miss with paranormal military/law enforcement romance. Sometimes it's ok, most of the time not. So I was hesitant to start this series. What made it work for me was Jamie. He's a strong leader.. BUT.. He actually LISTENS to his team. He's not all alpha "do it my way". He also respects the other MC, Kyle, completely and expects him to do his job in the field. There's none of this "I have to protect him and interfere" crap you see so often. Yes, he's worried for his partner, but he doesn't let that worry interfere with his professionalism in the field. The lack of that professionalism in the field is often what turns me off of other books of this genre.

Other things I loved about this series. It takes place in a future where sexual orientation is a complete non-issue. In fact, I don't think the word "gay" ever appears. He's with a man. No one cares about that. They care that they work together. THAT is a problem, but the fact that they are same sex is irrelevant. I also loved the diversity of the team. Men and women working together as absolute equals. If you do your job you get respect. That's it. LOVE IT!

The narrator Greg Boudreaux does an AMAZING job on this! He is spot on with all the voices and accents.

I rolled straight into In the Ruins, Book 2, without pause and was not disappointed. I CAN NOT WAIT for the rest of the series to be out on Audio!

Awesome start to a addictive series

I highly recommend this if you like Marvel Agents of SHEILD and lots of hot MM erotica.
I often find it difficult to identify with a lot of SciFi but the clear world building and excellent characters made this a great book I became lost in right from the start. The whole concept of a bio weapon that kills almost all it comes in contact with, with the exception of those whose DNA interacts with Splice and transforms them into Metahumans giving each survivor a unique ‘superpowers’ is not that far fetched.
Fantastic action packed scenes with great choreography between all the characters.
The relationship between the two MC’s is Incredibly hot and the sex scenes are very descriptive and intense. Some of the hottest sex scenes I have heard.
This may be the hottest audiobook I have heard but with the story to back it up and who better to narrate it than Greg Boudreaux, he makes the numerous characters identifiable and his inflection and timing is perfect.
I can’t wait for the rest of the series to arrive on audiobook
5 stars all round

Amazing

Greg Boudreaux is a new Narrator to me, and it did a great job with these. I hope the rest are narrated I do love this series and having them in Audible made me love them more.
I love that he has the voices of the characters just right.
Awesome.
