    1. Jory is awesome, goofy, hyperactive fun, and Sam is his perfect foil. My only complaint is (and this isn't a spoiler because it's in the blurb!) the pain of imagining a three year separation between the two guys, because it just hurts to think they're not together.

    2. 3.5 stars, I think…A Matter of Time, Vol 2 consists of books 3 & 4 in the Matter of Time series. I finished book 2 last month, so I figured I would have no problem jumping into book 3. Boy, was I wrong. I actually had to check my kindle to make sure I was reading book 3 and not another book. I know that there is a 3 year gap between books 2 & 3, but I still felt completely lost with the story line and characters I could not remember. Thank goodness this was a buddy read, and my friend [...]

    3. If I had not been paying attention, I would have sworn I was reading Volume 1 all over again. Volume 2 is the exact same book: white van kidnapping Jory; Sam and Jory fighting over coming out; one of them leaving the other at the hospital; every man that Jory meets wants to feed him, fuck him, and take care of him. It got old. You know what else got old? Jory running off and putting himself in danger…over and over again.You know what did NOT get old? Sam and JoryI still love them. I was sad th [...]

    4. 3 StarsI’m having a very tumultuous relationship with this series so far. This volume was especially befuddling to me. I generally didn’t enjoy book #3, with all the back and forth between Jory and Sam, as they reunited and attempted to work through their past hurts and the possibility of a future together. (view spoiler)[I absolutely HATED that it had been 3 whole years since Sam “abandoned” Jory (because that’s what he did – reasons be damned!) and in that time Jory reverted back t [...]

    8. Casting of A Matter of Time. Written review to followJory: Mathias Lauridsen (The only guy pretty enough to make a straight man gay.) Sam: This gorgeous unknown man Or. Chris Hemsworth (Blonde,brown hair, check. Slate blue eyes, check. 6"3 inches, close enoughd hot,hot hot!!!) Dane: Hugh Jackman (Hansome, debonair and damn sexy in a tux!). Dane's expression when Jory does something stupid.

    9. 4.5 starsLet me state the obvious; this was over the top, semi ridiculous, way too dramatic and it's fucking fantastic. *drops a quarter in the swear jar for the college fund* I have come to the conclusion that Sam Kage and Jake Riordan were in the same closet in the closet cop factory where they picked bearded women from a moving rack and that Adrien English and one Jory Harcourt need to team up to become super sleuths and share stories about their big alpha men over a Tab. That being said. I l [...]

    10. I have read both volumes of this story back to back. The only reason I am not going straight on to the next couple is I don't own them yet. (I will very soon though)I still find Sam, the very hot, dominant cop a great character. He is my sort of man.Jory annoyed me a little more this time. So did the way he still came across as this perfect man that everyone wants. I was thinking he might of grown up a little, seeing as this book is three years into the future from where the last one finished, b [...]

    11. One hot déjà vu mess. Déjà vu because there were many scenes that seemed familiar, although I am 99.99% certain that I have not read this volume before. I'm not talking about "all Mary Calmes books are alike, so of course it seems familiar". I distinctly recall specific things, such as the new sister in law and her father getting sick. I also recall the scene at the end, were (view spoiler)[Sam is part of a wedding party, but he and Jory are not out to everyone as a couple (hide spoiler)]ETA [...]

    12. 4.5 I have a love/hate relationship with these books. So much about them irritates me - yet I can't put them down once I start reading.As much as the references to 'the beautiful' people in these stories annoyed the living daylights out of me, as much as Jory being fed every two seconds (admittedly there was less of this in vol 2)annoyed me even further, as much as Jory doing a disappearing act every two seconds was just unbelievable - I was compelled to read, and what's more I enjoyed it. I hon [...]

    13. I want to start out by saying I enjoyed books 1 - 4, but at a cost! What little hair i have at the moment (fell out during recent chemo), I wanted to pull out in frustration with Jory and Sam! OMG how maddening they are!!! But, what is saving this story for me is Jory’s big heart and the fun I am having reading it along with the frustration. I won't do a regular review because there are enough out there, but i wanted to say I enjoyed this series so far. These two are on again off again and it [...]

    14. I feel like a ping pong with all the back and forth Sam and Jory do. After the 1st two books I was so ready to punch Sam. How could he do what he did? Flatly I still don't understand it and I wanted him to do more groveling (MUCH MORE GROVELING) before Jory ended up back with him. And then. I didn't. Because they are just so perfect. While the dialogue was the shiney goodness in the first set of books this one really let me feel the characters - get into their lives, get an idea of who they real [...]

    15. Ok so after my confused reaction to Volume 1, I still ploughed on to read Book #3 & #4 in Volume 2. But I have to say that despite feeling the need to finish it, I just felt frustrated through much of it and especially at the end!There were parts I really liked and at times I even liked the characters a lot - the plot was pretty mental and all over the place, but kinda fun anyway. The "mystery" was obvious from the beginning, although there was a little twist at the end, but I went with it a [...]

    16. *Audio edition*Well I have to say that this was more over the top than A Matter of Time, Vol. 1 . I listened to this story by the same narrator as the first and I still find him a bit odd/quirky but was used to it by now. Again I do think he does Jory and Sam's voices really well which is what counts since they're the MC's.It's three years later and a series of events throws Sam and Jory back together. Further complicating their new relationship is a serial killer on the loose that personally af [...]

    17. Jory, baby, no, just no. Gawd knows, you are gorgeous, a good listener, a wonderful dancer, a fabulous assistant / now marketing guru, an amazing detective (even better than Sam!), a peerless party planner, courageous, resourceful and so, so, so much more. Seeing you on the dance floor, all gay men want you, women adore you, and the straight guys? To paraphrase Sam, some of them are wondering what it would be like to just once sleep with a man. I will freely acknowledge that every last one of t [...]

    18. Book 3 is definitely a favorite of mine in the series. I think mostly because we see Sam really have to work to get back into Jory's graces and I loved to read that. Honestly, initially knowing there was a three year gap between books 2 and 3 really threw me for a loop. Time gaps are something that I have issues with in romances but this really worked for the characters who really needed a break to sort things out. Fantastic chemistry is a hallmark of these books as well as well rounded and fles [...]

    19. Hello Jory!!!!!!!!!! So good to see you again and be together with you on your next exciting adventure!!!Jory Harcourt has to be one of the most endearing characters ever. It’s just impossible not to fall in love with this guy. He’s fun, sweet, gorgeous, lovable, naughty, “camp” that just misses being OTT, helpful and can’t help finding trouble around every corner – he draws drama and trouble without even being aware that much of it due to his way of thinking…“I cannot believe th [...]

    20. **Audio**I don’t even know what to say. Seriously. I love this book just as much as I hate this book. “I cannot believe that my family, your brother, all our friends, and an entire police force can’t keep tabs on one twenty-six-year-old graphic designer who thinks he’s fuckin’ Batman.” Exactly.Whatever, it’s not like I won’t re-read/re-listen to it again.

    21. I’m a little torn on this one. I still absolutely adore Jory and Sam together, but book 3 drove me nuts and then book 4 stretches the bounds of believability for me. Yet I LOVE Sam and Jory!!! I was actually very surprised by the difference in length between book 3 and book 4. Still once the story really got going, despite the slight unbelievability of it all, I was enjoying myself yet again wrapped up in these two’s co-dependence.It’s been three years since Sam left to try to track down t [...]

    22. Okay. So, I have to say it. I love Sam Kage and Jory Harcourt. I don't know why I do but I do. Sam is the definition of an alpha male. Huge. Hulking. Angry. Alpha male. And we must not forget sexy as all get out. Jory. Ah, where to begin with Jory. He's this golden guy whom everybody loves, he's sweet, he's kind, he's the kind of guy that will risk his life for others, and he has a hard time with saying the word "no". Case in point, he's also a stubborn jackass who doesn't know what the fuck is [...]

    23. The first volume, although rather unrealistic, was at least fun to read. This one, though, was simply horrible (view spoiler)[- first some stalking, then rape (picking up a drunken Jory, not caring about him saying no repeatedly and even physically trying to fight Sam off), Sam's family pressuring Jory to promise to stay with him, Sam telling Jory everything that he's not allowed to do It all sounds like abuse, and still, Jory's perfectly happy with it! He states once, at some point late in the [...]

    25. Totally love the chemistry between Sam and Jory. But on occasion, I find I'd like to shake both of them til their heads rattle. Quite the combination of stubborn, alpha male and somewhat flighty and troublesome, although adorable, hot guy. Jory is a little "wispy" but I love that about him. The more I read about Sam, the better I understand the role he plays in the Marshals books. He's such a hardass of a boss, but it generates from a place of protectiveness, responsibility, and genuine caring f [...]

    26. Second or third re-listen. Although one picks up errors by the narrator and/or author after hearing it several times, I still love this series.Oct. 20, 2015. Yep, another relisten.

    27. I read the kindle edition of this last yearor maybe the year before, but had to pack it in around the 40% mark. It was books 1 & 2 on a rinse and repeat cyclee exact same stuff happened, but I want to read Sam and Jory's wedding story so I thought I'd give the audio book a go instead, just for a change.Have to say, at the start of this double edition I was regretting my decision. The narrator, Paul Morey, was slow and ponderous and although I loved his growly, low Sam Kage voice **shivers** [...]

    28. I loved this one, too, I really did. Sam and Jory together is a wondrous thing of beauty! Almost perfect! And even with all the usual craziness Jory was constantly throwing himself into and not listening to anyone AT ALL, I loved it. Even with the absence of Dane throughout most the book, I loved it. AND even with the 3 year separation between Sam and Jory in the very beginningI still loved this book. RIGHT UNTIL THE LAST FRIGGEN CHAPTER!!It felt like that last chapter was thrown in just to give [...]

    29. DNF. I couldn’t get past the rape scene in the third book, tbh. TW for rape & kidnapping: (view spoiler)[I don’t know if the author thought that was sexy or what, but no. Drunk, protesting Jory who actually several times tries physically make Sam stop, but Sam ignores him and tries to convince him that’s what he wants and fucks him anyway? And then Jory really likes it? Not only was it rape trying to be romantic and passionate, it was insulting to those of us who have been raped—like [...]

    30. Finished with book three . . . This was focusing almost entirely on Sam and Jory getting back together again. I liked it, though I did find J and S--especially Sam repeated himself a bit too often. And sometimes the arguments didn't quite seem to match the ones a page or two before it. Guess he's a fickle one. Huh, considering how many times it's great and then Sam quits on them, that probably shouldn't be too surprising.Onto book four . . .Book four-- I liked it a touch less than book three, ma [...]
