Audiobook Review: Quiet Strength by MA Innes

Quiet Strength

M/M Age Play Romance
Narrated by: Kenneth Obi
Length: 6 hrs and 28 mins
Unabridged Audiobook
Release date: 06-18-18
Language: English

Eric's grown more confident. He has to admit that. With Marcus's love and support, he's stronger than ever, but it's not enough. His daddy's given him the ability to go after what he wants, but there's so much more that feels just out of reach. Eric doesn't want part of the lifestyle or some of the submission...he wants everything.

For Marcus, there's nothing more beautiful than watching his boy's confidence grow. Marcus loves every step Eric has taken on his journey, but he doesn't want to push his boy too far, too fast. And when the only part of Marcus's future that's clear is Eric by his side, it's not fair to his boy to rush things. A daddy should be able to provide for his boy. A looming retirement and a questionable future aren't enough. Not when he wants to give his boy everything.

When it comes to their relationship, Eric is ready to jump in headfirst. But how does Eric show his daddy that everything doesn't have to be planned out to be perfect?

Overall Rating: 4 Stars

Quiet Strength is book 2 in this MM Age Play series by MA Innes and it needs to be read/listened to in order.

While I enjoyed Quiet Strength, I think the first book is my favorite. Still, I really liked to see Eric feel more confident in his relationship with Marcus and with others, and have it bleed into other aspects of his life like his work, in this new book. And Marcus was just the perfect blend of Daddy/Dom/partner, always there for Eric for anything he needed.

I loved the sweetness of Marcus and Eric's Daddy/little boy dynamics. I just had no clue that it could be like that, which is why I was wary before starting Silent Strength, and it was even better this time around since Eric found it easier to open himself to Marcus. I also liked that we saw Marcus and Eric as more than just D/lb, but also D/s and as a couple, to the point that Eric offered his support to Marcus as his partner and not just took what he needed as his submissive/little boy.

I adored Nathan, who is such a sweet, funny guy. His interactions with Eric were hilarious!

Kenneth Obi did a great job with the narration, especially with Eric, his voice is perfect for him and just made me feel more connected to his character. I liked his voice for Marcus, too, but I think in the end, when there were other Doms in the scene, their voices tended to be too similar and difficult to identify, which didn't happen with Eric, Nathan or even Zander. His tone is very pleasant and even if the narration wasn't as even as in the first book, it was still very enjoyable.

Overall, though, this was a great addition to the series and I'm sure this isn't the last time I'll listen to it.
