She only knows me from the online games she plays…
During the day, Mazie Bridges is the electronic surveillance expert for the Savoy, but at night she takes refuge in becoming her alter ego, Knight Fury. In a newly released online game, she has teamed up with the mysterious Holden Tremayne to defeat the malevolent protagonist of the game. They seem to be the perfect partners. After all, Holden only plays after the sun goes down.
What happens when the online world tries to push through the Veil to perpetuate its evil in the real world? They say my kind keeps the evil spirits at bay…but what if I’m one of them?
Welcome to the opulent world of the Masters of the Savoy, where the men and women might be a little different—more than human. The men appeared out of nowhere one day determined to grab life and look for love. But watch out…you never know what darkness lurks in the shadows.
Author note: Release is a mystery romance with steamy heat in and out of the bedroom for mature listeners only. Each book in the series is stand-alone with no cliff-hanger endings.
This book was so good! It is the sixth book in the Masters of the Savoy series and, in my opinion, one of the best. The time flew by and I am sorry it was not longer. Holden is cursed to be a gargoyle by day and a partial gargoyle by night, although he looked mostly human. He did not turn to stone until sunlight. Holden was cursed because of his behavior approximately 700 years ago. He connects with Mazie as soon as he sees her. I love how this story played out. I didn’t know who the killer was so it made me suspicious of just about everyone. We have characters from previous books like Saoirse and Spence. Mazie was a highly intelligent but tough young woman who doesn’t find out that Holden was not fully human until well into the book. I wanted the book to continue after the end to find out if Saoirse was able to fully reverse the spell/curse on Holden. As always, JT Farrell was outstanding, especially how he was able to switch accents. I received this audiobook from Audiobooks Unleashed at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

When the narration started, I was not sure how much I would enjoy this audiobook. At first the narrator sounded like an old man, and not anyone’s strong virile Alpha Dom. As I continued to listen, the narration got much much better, and I ended up being fully engaged in the story.
This was an unexpected pleasure that was over much too soon. Holden and Maisie fit so well together. I really liked both of their characters.
I appreciated Maisie’s initial reaction to both of Holden’s secrets. They were closer to being realistic. I suppose because she wasn’t as closely involved with the original group at the Savoy. This book was kind of bittersweet as I knew it was the end of the series.
I voluntarily read and reviewed the Advanced Reader Copy of this book received via Audiobooks Unleashed.

Sorry. I can’t gush about the narration but it sufficed. The main protagonist was a dominant male so the reader managed to fulfill that part,
Having read some of DJ’s other books (mainly the Tangled Vines series) I was expecting the usual emphasis on domination and spanking. I was also pleasantly surprised by this book being set in the UK.
The story revolves around Holden Tremayne and the ‘curse’ he has to live with which means he lives a double life, Maizie (his love interest), an online prize winning game which puts Maizie and her team in danger and how Holden finds a way to break said curse.
This was slow to start but turned into an enjoyable story, so a pleasant Sunday was spent listening to this book.
I received this book from audio books unleashed in return for an honest review.

Excellent audiobook I love how characters from other series are mentioned. Delta James never fails to disappoint me. JT Farrell was great as well. I slow the speed down to a .9 sounds better for me. JT Farrell was great.
