Author Cardeno C. pens an excellent, realistic relationship story in The Half of Us where readers witness the good, the bad, and all the hairy moments in between.

There is a lot of depth of character in this book that made me want to turn the pages and want more. I like how they learn to be friends and lovers… There is a lot about trusting yourself and letting yourself be who you really are. That and the great storyline makes this book one for the keeper shelves. Highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a different kind of shifter story you can fall in love with.

This is a fabulous audio book, one that I will listen to again and again. A keeper. Go and grab your copy.

Love Bites and Silk Ties

I cried, cringed, melted and on a few occasions, laughed through this book and highly recommend it for anyone who enjoys romance that is not easily achieved, some angst and a lead character that is delightfully flawed that he seems perfect!

Hearts on Fire Reviews

I truly loved the dynamics of this family as it felt so realistic and organic. ...The author did such an amazing job creating these amazing and brilliant characters and their stories. The sex scenes were so hot yet beautiful and loved the connection that Abe and Jason shared and then to bring in Jason's family was just wonderful. The way the author developed the amazing character of Jason was great as he had to come to turns with a lot in his life and his heart was still open to having that family life. I highly recommend The Half Of US by Cardeno C to anyone who loves reading about the true meaning of love and family!
