Audio Review ~ To Touch You (Mates #4) by Cardeno C, Narrated by Charlie David



  • Publisher's Summary

    “His name is Salvatore Rossi. He’s a vampire. And he’s my true mate.”
    By not relying on anyone except himself, Salvatore Rossi escaped a dead-end existence and reached the height of corporate success. But just when he has everything he always wanted, fate throws Salvatore a challenge he can’t solve alone, and a young wolf-shifter comes to his rescue.
    Since childhood, Yoram Smith’s family was certain he would grow to become alpha and save their beloved pack from its slow demise. When the time comes for a new leader, Yoram is forced to juggle his duty to care for a splintering pack with his duty to care for an absent mate, and his own strength suffers. Being turned into a vampire didn’t alter Salvatore’s life philosophy: If you don’t rely on anyone, nobody can let you down. But when the boy who saved his life becomes a man who needs his help, the icy vampire must find his humanity.

"I'd give up forever"
Overall
Performance
Story
Charlie David does a fantastic job narrating.
He's got a nice, deep voice but yet he can change the tone and depth to give each character their own "personalities".

The story itself is actually kind of sad.
Yoram finds his True Mate at a very young age, 7 to be exact. Only problem is, his mate was 30 at the time. Even then Yoram knew and tried to protect his mate, from his own family at that.

Fast forward 7 more years and Yori goes to visit Sal only to be shot down, again.
Still, Yori doesn't give up "taking care of his mate" .

Sal may not know about true mates and bonds, as he has been turned into a vampire by Yori's uncle, Miguel. So he isn't quite sure why human blood just isn't enough for him. Even after getting blood bags donated by an anonymous "gifter", he still resists. He knows who it's from, but all he can remember is that child that showed up in his office, and he cannot reconcile between the two.

When his donations stop coming for a few months, he gets a little nervous and finally decides to bite the bullet (no pun intended) and make a trip to the Pack lands.

I think this is why I liked this story so much...
It wasn't really instantaneous love/lust...it was spread over two decades. I like how Yori puts it though, with all the turmoil of the old pack Alpha, Sal would have never been accepted and Yori would have been thrown from pack, therefore never becoming alpha. It will also give Yori's uncles a chance to maybe one day become pack members again.

CC never let's us down though, we ALWAYS get our HEA, this one was a great one too. I loved that Sal was helping to update the pack in technology and education, to keep them moving forward and being a self sufficient pack.
