Publisher's Summary

The Foxes are a fractured mess, but their latest disaster might be the miracle they've always needed to come together as a team. The one person standing in their way is Andrew, and the only one who can break through his personal barriers is Neil.

Except Andrew doesn't give up anything for free, and Neil is terrible at trusting anyone but himself. The two don't have much time to come to terms with their situation before outside forces start tearing them apart. Riko is intent on destroying Neil's fragile new life, and the Foxes have just become collateral damage.

Neil's days are numbered, but he's learning the hard way to go down fighting for what he believes in, and Neil believes in Andrew even if Andrew won't believe in himself.

great series

I read the All For The Game series first before I one clicked all the audible versions to listen to as well. I've really enjoyed listening to this narrator in some of his other work, which is mainly why I ended up one-clicking this series to listen to as well. He does a great job with the story, I really enjoyed listening to him across books 1 & 2. However - some of the voices for all the different characters did start to sound really similar, confusing me a few times as to which character I was listening to in that particular moment. Other than that I loved it.

Amazing story, ok voice

As a great fan of this series, I was so excited to see the first two on audible! The story always hits me right in the gut- it’s raw and powerful, dark and driving. It tells stories that people would often rather not hear.
In terms of the voice actor, he has a beautifully crisp voice, however a lot of the characters sound the same. I found it very difficult to differentiate between them, even though I know the words from reading them on the page. He also voiced them like surfer dudes, which feels off but perhaps that’s an agreed upon style? So that critique is more a personal preference.
Overall, I listened to these books in long sittings, and kept coming back regardless of the narrator. I’m excited for the final one!

A great book but goodness

It was an amazing story but this was so much more harsh than the first book. He said No not I’m fine and that is so important.

Even more gripping that the first book.

Ahh god I can't wait to read more. I feel sucked into this story with a strength I haven't felt in years. My love for the characters of this series is hard to put into words. I feel like I'm gulping in the story like I'm suffocating, in the best way. I have other book series that I practically worship for how much they mean to me, but hanging off the edge of this unseeming All For The Game series, they're cast in complete shadow. This author sent me on the greatest emotional trip I've felt in so long.. and I'm so greatful for it. I rested in bed till 6am on a work day, jirating unwilling to stop my Audible from playing, damned the next morning consequences. And when I finally put it down I woke with vigor to pick it back up like I hadn't had 4 hours of sleep, something totally out of character for me. It's awesome, honestly. The book has so much heart, and pain. Dark themes are opened up to readers in a captivating way, gripping your heart with intense care and hope and despair when the characters face such dire challenges. And the joy as they shape into a true family despite everything they face is inspiring. It leaves my head and heart racing.

All the characters are lovable, deep and suprising. They feel very real to me. The main character lights a fire in your heart, and of course you root for him, of course you love him dearly. He'll rally you behind him like he does his new family. He's so dark and pure you will hurt for him, with him, yet believe he can make it through anything.

The story is fast- it's why I couldn't put the series down! The damn book kept rewarding me with thrilling and nail bitting drama. It just, had me- I had found my path listening to it and couldn't step off for a moment, craving the next steps revealed. The antagonists are true demons, and it's scary to think such twisted beings could be out there, because they're just, humans, not my usual fantasy evil warlocks. The cold abusers and tormentors will have you on protective overdrive.

My favorite character is absolutely Andrew. Again, I'm at a loss of how to explain exactly how much I love him. I find him, gravitational, hanging off his every action and word and grin, hungry for more. His intensity is, beautiful. His story slowly unwrapping heartbreaking, something not unique to the Foxes. His relationship with the main character and they're dynamic has my insides so jumbled, on edge and ecstac, it's blissful and honestly my favorite part of the series. I never have much real hope when I see such a scarily good push and pull between two male characters, my little gay heart has been mislead many a time in our media world. But, it's, dare I say, is it happening? I, feel a fool again, crying for their deep connection to take more steps. I guess I'll just have to read more, but every bone in my body says this author is different, this author understand me, understands how she's writing these two and what that writing is doing to my heart. And, I believe, in this new age of openly joyful gays and new age acceptance and sometimes even celebration, that Andrew and the main character Niel, have something romantic and complicated blossoming. And that, somehow means so much to me! I don't understand it.

But boy I'm having a blast on this ride. Thank you Nora Sakavic, your work is to die for. I absolutely recommend this book to us reading feelers out there, the ones who's hearts explode over beautiful stories. The ones who crave real connections and intensity. This, is the series for you.

Sophmore book even better

Things heat up intensely in this book, especially for Neil and Andrew, and I’m not talking about romance! My heart breaks for Andrew and his situation. He is seriously messed up. I’m desperate to find out what happened to him in the past. And Neil. Still running from his past. But it catches up to him. More plot twists, and that ending! Cliffy much?? But it was a unique way of handling a cliff hanger. On to book 3, when it comes out in a couple weeks.

I wish I skipped this book

There should be a trigger warning. I was not ready for the rape scene neither all the abuse. There was also still no romance. and the story still felt uneventful although so much happened.
And for some reason it was so so so repetitive. Especially in the first chapters. I haven't felt so silly since reading picture books. They re introduced all the characters constantly and it felt like this was a stand alone book instead the second part of a trilogy. Like If the first book did not matter at all.
In my opinion this book should not exist. This whole trilogy could be just a single book. It feels so episodic and so much like a sick fanfiction.
I finished within a day.
Up until the rape scene the book was fine. After that it because too overwhelming. I wish I'd never read it. I'm so sure that the next one will recup everything that happened in the previous ones anyway. like the writer does not trust their readers to remember.
I feel sick to my stomach.
Do not read this unless you are over 18.
Too much drama for no reason. So sick.
The performance and writing somewhat improved though. But it was unforgivably repetitive.
