    The American Fathers Swept Away by Henry Sullivan Set in a near future America the world is a bit different Powerful houses run the politics and hence the country from behind the scenes Sworn fealty to a powerful house can bring the average person a decent paying job in a world where society is scrambling to hold it together Sheila a smart lass from Tennessee sees through this BS and is trying to open the public’s eyes to this power shift Meanwhile the Lebanese congressional correspondent Jasira agrees with Sheila off the record Yet despite Sheila’s unarguable attraction to Jasira she can’t help but uestion Jasira’s motivesI stepped into this book thinking it was near future scifi politcs than romance erotica However I couldn’t help but be caught up in the story The author does a very good job of showing us through Sheila’s eyes the power structure and what Sheila believes to be wrong with it The story opens with a hosted TV show on which Sheila and Jasira are guests Through that show they get to interact with a few members of the show’s audience who have uestions that leave the the door open for Sheila to comment on the politics of the dayThere’s only a touch or two of what you might call futuristic tech Honestly telling your sound system to play a certain selection of music is possible now with a swanky system Still it was nice to have these small reminders that this is a near future story and not some alternate story of what Earth and politics might be today I personally would have preferred a little future techThis is a romance erotica and that part of the book is sweet When Jasira turned on the charm I melted The sex scene doesn’t happen until the end and there is a very nice build up We get a clear picture of who each of these ladies are – and they are both smart and savvy in their own ways Plus there are those hints of hidden secrets and things rather not said for both ladies giving the story that overtone of possible future conflicts of interests By the time the sex scene arrived I was thoroughly caught up in the characters and so wanted them to be happy with each other The descriptions of the love making were detailed but not gauche It was a very nicely done piece of erotica thrown into a larger story of political intrigue As a side note I really like that we have than 1 ethnicity represented in this story I will definitely be looking for episode 2I received this book at no cost from the author in exchange for an honest reviewThe Narration This was an excellent performance all around Sheila’s character had a light regional accent that wasn’t overdone The voice for Jasira was perfect – by turns clever and insightful and then sexy and tempting The rest of the character voices were distinct and well done The production was smooth with touches of ambient sounds that never drowned out the dialogue

    I was provided with a free download to this audiobook in exchange for an honest reviewAn intriguing introduction to what looks to be an interesting series The American Fathers Swept Away is smart attention grabbing and well written In a near future where powerful dynasties and families have all but taken the place of the government college professor Sheila is convinced that America needs to turn away from this modern feudalism or be destroyed Is the attractive Jasira her enemy or an ally in the upcoming struggle?This book gets several points for creativity; I don't think I've ever seen anything uite like this done Contemporary feudalism might sound like a bit much for the plot of a book but the introductory chapters were done in a way that made the plot was easily understood and digested I liked the concept of these powerful families and companies all but ruling the country through the populace and their employees There's a lot of potential in the storyline that's set up here As for the characters I loved Sheila from the first; smart competent determined a little awkward and really cute Jasira as a love interest was really great as well just mysterious enough to piue your interestThe sex scene was a bit awkward I won't lie But there were none of the male gazey vibes I sometimes get when men write ff Overall I can't wait to see where the romance between Sheila and Jasira goesA good read I'm probably going to get my hands on the others in the series when I'm able to I'd recommend this for lovers of suspense science fiction and romance35 stars

    I am not sure what the author’s intent with this “book” or story or preuel is I did not think it was long enough to form any kind of opinion about whether to read or not The story involves Sheila McKinley a college professor who has just experienced a relationship break up who sees a pundit on TV and immediately grows to like her Shelia’s friend invites her to dinner and has also invited this pundit as a surprise guest The two of them end up touring the town as Shelia shows the pundit the sights There was not enough of a bookstory here for me to form any opinion as I said I felt nothing one way or the other about the main character I might or might not read about this character after reading this Frankly I saw little use in reading this since it did nothing It was written well enough but had no story or “teaser” to suck in the reader I am not sure who if anyone would enjoy this or be enticed to read of the story in subseuent works I received this from Library Thing in return for an honest review

    Narrated by a cast of five actors The American Fathers Episode 1 is a short audiobook 58 minutes Sound effects are sprinkled throughout the prose This combination ie the length cast and sound effects brought to mind radio mysteries Well producedBoth dialogue and narration are excellent Snappy and authentic The cast of actors does a terrific job in transitions with voicescharacters You’ll find a seamless reading and will have absolutely no trouble discerning who says what to whoAlthough the story itself is short the topic is intriguing In a not to distant future a very powerful movement will thrust the country into a haves and have nots culture Dynasties of enormous wealth call the shots and there are a few who see a future of unknown but certain failures of a catastrophic nature Two women find their commonalities are deeper than their similar viewpoints and a predicable liaison ensuesWith The American Fathers Episode 1 a lot happens in a short time Note this book is for mature audiences and is LGBTThe uality of this work is very good But you may be disappointed in the brevity
