I couldn’t tell you what number read this is on the entire A Matter of Time series. This, however, is the first time I was able to listen to book 6, But For You. A Matter of Time is a comfort read for me, so I am excited that books 6 and 7 are now available via audio.

Sequel to Bulletproof
Jory Harcourt is finally living the dream. Being married to US Marshal Sam Kage has changed him—it’s settled the tumult of their past and changed Jory from a guy who bails at the first sign of trouble to a man who stays and weathers the storm. He and Sam have two kids, a house in the burbs, and a badass minivan. Jory’s days of being an epicenter for disaster are over. Domestic life is good.
Which means it’s exactly the right time for a shakeup on the home front. Sam’s ex turns up in an unexpected place. A hit man climbs up their balcony at a family reunion. And maybe both of those things have something to do with a witness who disappeared a year ago. Marital bliss just got a kick in the pants, but Jory won’t let anyone take his family away from him. Before he knew what it felt like to have a home, he would have run. Not anymore. He knows he and Sam need to handle things together, because that’s the only way they’re going to make it.
But For You completes Jory and Sam’s story. We get to see them in wedded bliss, with kids, generally dealing with life… and Sam’s past. There were parts of this story that I thought were a little over the top and unnecessary, but mostly I took it for what it was, a love letter to Sam and Jory fans.
If you are a Sam and Jory fan, as I am, this is a necessary addition to your collection.
Herein lies the problem with recording a series in pieces. Finn Sterling is the 3rd different narrator in this series. He is also my least favorite. He does an okay job with the prose and as Jory, but the voices he uses for the rest of the characters just don’t mesh. The voices end up as a distraction, and they make it hard to follow who is speaking during the dialogue. It is not enough to stop me from listening to the series again.
I would like to thank Dreamspinner Press for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
