Publisher's Summary

Indy will do anything to prevent his mobster ex from finding him. Their last encounter left Indy recovering for months in the hospital, and, ever since, he's become an expert at hiding in plain sight.

Determined to stay under the radar, he takes on a new identity and moves from place to place. His life has no room for friendships, let alone love, so he keeps his heart firmly closed. After all, he has nothing to offer but a damaged body and a broken soul. Plus, he's so done with men. Until he meets the man who breaks through all his defenses.

Former Army Medic Noah came back damaged from his last tour in more than one way. Between supporting his best friend-with-benefits Josh who's struggling with PTSD, dealing with his own issues, and the stress of his job as a physician assistant, rebuilding his life seems impossible. There's little time for what Noah needs, let alone for what he wants. When he meets Indy, Noah discovers what he wants more than anything: for Indy to stay. But how will a relationship with Indy work when Noah needs Josh as well?

Indy never expected the strong, confident Noah to be as damaged and broken as himself. But what will happen if he starts letting Noah in? Indy knows he should run to protect Noah and Josh. Noah needs Indy to stay more than anything. But will what little he has to offer be enough to make Indy trust him and stay?

No Filter is a steamy M/M romance featuring an open relationship (no cheating!) that ends with a HFN but with the promise of a HEA. It's the first audiobook in the No Shame Series, and is not a stand-alone novel. It contains hot sex, a hint of a menage, lots of talk about hot sex, flashbacks of said hot sex, and...Oh well, you get the idea. Also: trigger warning for mentions of sexual abuse.

Loved it.

I already knew I loved the story from reading the kindle edition, and I loved hearing the characters come to life. Kenneth Obi does an excellent job of conveying emotions and differentiating between voices for the characters.

Amazing series

This series is the best. And even better on audio. Kenneth Obi has done an amazing job making these people come life.
If you are only listening to one book this year, this is the one you need.
Love this series.

Just sucks you right in

I love Nora Phoenix and I really don't know why I dragged my feet on starting this series. I should have known better she writes in a way that just grabs hold and the characters won't let you go. Obi does a great job with the narration, I have not read them previously but I imagine his perfomance is what I would have had in my head on my own.

Very Steamy!

This is the first book I've read by Nora Phoenix and the first audio I've listened to by Kenneth Obi. I enjoyed Kenneth's voice. There was good distinction between the various voices and his vocal inflections matched the text he was reading.

I have mixed feelings about the story. It was super steamy, I'd almost call it erotica except that there was enough of a storyline that even without all of the sex it would still have been interesting.

There were graphic depictions of sexual abuse which the author noted in her synopsis/blurb. Speaking of the blurb, for those of you who usually don't read them you may be a tiny bit lost or uncertain about what the story is about. At the time I started listening to the audiobook it had been a while since I'd read the blurb. I was a bit lost about who Indy was and what was going on in the beginning so I went back and read the blurb and it helped a lot. I strongly suggest reading the blurb for this one.

As the author noted in the blurb, the story has an HFN but will continue into the next book. Even though I had mixed feelings about the book, I liked it enough to purchase the next one as an audiobook.

I won a free Audible code for this book but no review was required or requested. My review was voluntary and not influenced by the author.

Exquisite

I loved this book when I read it, but my love for it grew even more once I heard it come to life. Kenneth does a fantastic job voicing Noah, Josh, Indie and Connor. I got so lost in it and just enjoyed every minute.

OMG!!

The emotions in this book had my heart so much!! I just love Indy, Noah and Josh so damn much! Kenneth Odi has brought their emotions to the point that I can feel as my own. The way that he did this narration was just a beautiful thing. Amazing!! Going in the next one now!

so so good...

No Filter is the first book in Nora Phoenix's No Shame Series. This is not the end of their story,it continues on in book two.

In No Filter we are introduced to Indy, Noah and Josh and get to see how they get to know each other. Each of these men are beautiful but broken in some way. Indy on the run from demons from his past,, and a real danger that may attack st any time. Josh and Noah carrying the physical and emotional scars of military service. Together they share their bodies and their hearts.

The story is definitely steamy. Its a polyamorous relationship, and the men are trying to figure out their feelings and their roles... there is angst, drama, sexytimes and some sweet moments between them. These are complex characters with complex issues... the story is done beautifully. There is some dark subject matter covered in this story, it is not a mushy kind of love... it's dark, it's hard, its raw... and it's perfect.

The narrator is Kenneth Obi who is phenomenal... each character comes to life with their own voice, which fit them wonderfully. The personalities shine and suck you into the story.

Wonderful Dark and Intriguing Story

I'm so impressed. I had heard this author is amazing, and that's no lie. The vast scope of the story, the complex characters, the dirty and raunchy sex scenes... everything was just beautifully done.

This is a continuing story, so not a cliff hanger, but the plot grows and develops with the next book and I can't wait to start it.

Even better, one of my new favorite narrators, Kenneth Obi, does this series. I fell in love with him when I listened to M.A. Innes' Strength series - he infuses all his characters with so much emotion, it's always a pleasure to listen to him read me a story. His Bostonian accent will make some of us from the North East chuckle, but Indy is such an adorable character that it fits.

I love a dark story so I'm good with everything that goes down in No Filter, but if I was writing this review for the blog, my list of tags and CW's would be mighty long *wink*.

Highly recommend, and if you're a fans of audiobooks this one is a huge win!

Good but tough storyline

I enjoyed the characters, Josh, Indy, Noah. The background stores of rape and violence were tough to listen too. Even though I loved the interaction of the characters, it was hard to get beyond all the violence.

Nice story with a HFN ending

This is the first time I have listened audio prior to reading the book, I really enjoyed it and followed the story easily.

Kenneth did a really good job of choosing the voices for the characters, including the two voices for indi. It was clear who was speaking so easy to follow,

When I read the blurb for this story I was confused as to whether it was a mm or mmm, the relationship between indi, josh and Noah is amazing and I am so happy about how it ended for now... and off to read book 2 as I need to know what happens next.

This was a really nice story although had some hard to hear elements, possible trigger for sexual abuse, glad the author didn’t go into detail. The sex scenes were good and relevant. Kenneth voice kept me engaged in the story and I really enjoyed it.

Will definitely get the next book in audio.
