This was really a pleasure to listen to. It is one of those stories where you have a smile on your face most of the time you are listening to their story. The narrator did a wonderful job of bringing Walter and Kelly to life. This is a very sweet story that is a little darker than you expect. It starts off as the openly gay college playboy meets the super shy, gay freshman that has massive allergies and loves Disney movies. The slow build up and angst of their romance is just right. We learn that even though Walter appears in control, he has demons to fight, a la his messed up family life. And although Kelly's Disney princess view of the world seems unrealistic, he has some steel in his spine when it comes to Walter. No real drama, just a sweet story. Definitely worth a credit.
Listening to this book is like visiting old friends. I read and re read this book many times and the audio version did not disappoint. If you are not a fan of the series and have not read all the other books, I'm not sure you will get as much out of this book. The real appeal in this alpha/alpha relationship is how they got to this point. The secondary story in this book is almost incidental. The other couple in this story makes more sense if you read Warrior's Cross, (their story), But you can still enjoy the book if you haven't read Warrior's Cross. Sean Crisden does a great job with everyone's voices EXCEPT Cam's. He made him sound like a sniveling weasel and he really is a great character (I've read Warrior's Cross). Regardless, this is a must for any Ty and Zane fans while we patiently wait for the release of Stars & Stripes and hopefully Touche & Geux on audio.
This is a collection of maybe a zillion of Mr. Lanyon's short stories. Every one I wish was longer. This author just has an amazing gift for creating MCs that are smart, witty, vulnerable, endearing and any other adjective you can think of. There are different narrators for each story and they were all fantastic; not a bad one in the lot. How is that possible?! Does he have a stable of great narrators on retainer? Mr. Lanyon, please share them with the rest of the audiobook world!! Anyway, as I said, my only complaint was that the stories were not longer and were all HFN endings. Josh Lanyon doesn't believe in HEA; he just leaves you satisfied, but still wanting more.
