    Story

    At first, I thought this was the typical teenage coming of age story. It definitely started out that way. The first half is tender and sweet, young love at in all it's glory. In the second half, the book grows up, just like the characters. Life gets in the way, there's tragedy, loss and reward. Can you love more than one person at a time? Do first love's last? I ended up enjoying the book more than I thought I would. So, stick with it. Its rewarding in the end.

    The hot Texas nights were lonely for Ben before his heart began beating to the rhythm of two words; Tim Wyman. By all appearances, Tim had the perfect body and ideal life, but when a not-so-accidental collision brings them together, Ben discovers that the truth is rarely so simple. If winning Tim's heart was an impossible quest, keeping it would prove even harder as family, society, and emotion threaten to tear them apart. Something Like Summer is a love story spanning a decade and beyond as two boys discover what it means to be friends, lovers, and sometimes even enemies.

    The only reason I'm giving the story 3 stars, is because it feels unfinished. Don't expect the narrative to wrap up all the loose ends in this book, I fear that's what book two and three are going to do.
    That said, it's well written and I enjoyed the story quite a bit. If I hadn't liked the story, I would be a little unhappy about having to buy the next two books.
    Excellent narration. Tremblay has a relaxed style that I enjoyed immensely.

    I bought this book based on a recommendation from Reeva, who's opinions I've begun to appreciate.
    While I'm still not sure that I get the emotional mechanics of a MMM relationship, the author handles it with aplomb. In the end, I think the relationship ends up being pretty stylised, but not so much that it's not realistic.
    The mechanics of the sexual relationship in the MMM triad are expertly handled. What has the potential to overwhelm the plot, adds to it in many ways.
    A long book, that feels like it flies by. Don't miss out, buy this book.

  • Aiden's Luck: Seattle Stories, Book 3

    "Reviewed for Prism Book Alliance"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    Would you listen to Aiden's Luck again? Why?

    After Ben, the first book is this series, was one of my all time favourites. I thought Con Riley’s writing in that heart wrenching book was brilliant. It’s a close call but I think Aiden’s Luck might just top that. This story is all about family - the good, the bad and the ugly. It’s about one mans mission to save his family from the truth, his sense of duty over a 5 year period that leaves him struggling and barely surviving.

    Aiden’s adoptive parents are everything to him. They saved him and then later his brother Evan from the care system and all that implied. They were a regular family of four, happy and content until his father committed suicide. With his mother suffering a mental breakdown and family services sniffing around making sure Evan was suitably cared for Aiden made a decision that would change his life. He took over ALL responsibility for his family not realising at the time just what a difficult thing that would be and how much it would affect and change his life.

    Five years of lies, deceit, stretched finances, hiding his sexuality and stress are really beginning to take their toll. When he agrees to house sit for a friend the last thing he expects is to find himself staring into the almost identical face of his first crush. The very talkative, very annoying and very beautiful face of Marco de Luca, youngest brother of the late Ben de Luca.

    Talk about opposites! Ben is so trampled down with his responsibilities where Marco is larger than life, gregarious and determined to butt into his business. The more Marco pushes Aiden, the more walls Aiden erects until he breaks down in the family home garage when hit with past memories and Marco is there to pick him up and help him through it.

    Con could not have written a more compassionate character than Marco. For me he was just perfect. He always knew just what was required. He could remain calm, he could push if required, he always offered support and advice...the way he dealt with Aiden had the vibe of a D/s relationship to me and Aiden responded positively and for the first time in years he started feeling hope.

    This is a heartfelt story and beautifully written. It will take you through a gamut of emotions whilst Aiden tries at first to keep his life precariously balanced before realising that he may have to face the truth and that the people he loves and protects are stronger than he gives them credit for.

    "Reviewed for Prism Book Alliance"

    Overall

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Of Dark and Bright the most enjoyable?

    This is less than half the length on audio than the previous book but still just as good.

    This chapter in the boys lives is a lot more melancholy than the first two books. I don’t think anyone that reads this series can fail to fall in love with Jeff. As I have said before he is the glue that holds the three together and an integral part of the relationship. At the start of this book he is questioning whether he is of any use to Dan and Evan and whether they would be better off without him. His self doubt is a little bit heart breaking. When he also decides to keep his health worries to himself he is not in a very good place.

    Dan and Evan are just the same. One minute everything is fine and the next they are behaving like petulant 5 year olds and waiting for Jeff to sort them out. When Dans sister turns up after an absence of 15 years, 7 months pregnant, the sparks really fly. Evan is never slow to use his money to get what he wants and this situation proves no different. I have loved Evan throughout the three books but his behaviour in the barn when arguing with Dan left me wanting to smack him round the head, he was cruel and you begin to wonder whether the cracks are going to be too deep to fix this time.

    I cannot recommend this series enough. It is the very real life struggle of three men and a slightly unconventional relationship. It is not all sunshine and roses but when they get it to work it is fantastic. I felt the first time I read it that it would have been great to see another book, I felt it was left a little open ended, just my personal opinion. I became invested in Dan, Evan and Jeff and would love to see how life worked out for them.

    Narration
    Peter B Brooke did another excellent job. His strong point is still not the female voices but he can be forgiven that I think as he does the three main characters so perfectly.

    Story
    Where does Button Down rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I really enjoyed this. Two more different men you couldn’t meet!

    Ford is from a Southern State. His father is not only Mayor of their small town but also a Deacon in the church. He demands respect and obedience from his two sons and believes in ‘traditional’ family values. His father was a bigot!

    Gus was brilliant. Out, loud and proud and a great advocate for LGBT rights. Disowned by his family at 16 when his father discovered kissing another boy over their homework he has worked hard to get where he is. His previous boyfriend of three years was in the closet and has just gone through conversion therapy; he now claims to be happy, free of sin and has just married a woman.

    The story stems around a community centre being built in a small town. Gus was the architect and didn’t know that a group with extreme homophobic views was involved until after the contract ink was dry. He tries and fails to get himself out of his commitment. As this is happening he has a hot one night stand with Ford, and it is only after that night that he discovers Ford is the lawyer tasked with ensuring Gus finishes the job he has started.

    This is not always a comfortable read as it deals with racism and homophobia but real life is not always comfortable. I liked Ford a lot, he may have spent his life in the closet and lived in fear of what his family thought but he was never negative about who he was and he never denied it to himself. Gus was always thoughtful about his predicament understanding what it felt like to lose your family.

    The cast of characters in this story was important and you meet some very strong people. Some you will hate immediately but others will surprise you in their support and compassion. I personally think books like this are important, they show us if even for a small time that life isn’t always easy, that we must persevere and that who we love is never wrong. It is worth mentioning the ending......not everything is fixed....again just like real life.
    I would love to read a story about Thor!

    Narration
    Great narration on this one! There were quite a lot of characters and all were done perfectly IMO. Very easy to listen to and very clear.


  • Ethan in Gold

    Story
    Would you listen to Ethan in Gold again? Why?

    When the Johnnies series first come out I can still clearly remember reading Chase Shadow and being left with the feeling that my heart had been torn out with all the hurt. If somebody asked me to give one word to describe Amy Lane it would undoubtedly be ANGST. She is the absolute master of it!! Ethans book is also full of angst but not in the all consuming way that Chases was.

    At the start of this book we find out that Ethan has been abused at school, as a 5 year old, by the bad man with him ‘bamboo’. At first he is supported by his family but those feelings quickly change when they pull away and his mother stops touching him altogether. Whether in fear, stupidity or ignorance the pain this causes Ethan and the effects it will have on his life are devastating and life changing, even more so than the original abuse
    .
    Ethan craves touch and I mean CRAVES. He reminded me of a big puppy as he grew up, always trying to do the right thing, to please everybody around him, just so people would touch his arm or tousle his hair. His family fail him completely in this respect; he has a failed attempt at a sexual experience with another boy which leads to more confusion and pain and for a while settles in a relationship with a girlfriend. Although not what he wants deep down he is finally being touched, skin on skin and it settles him.

    After leaving his family he finds a way of getting the touch he needs in abundance. He becomes Ethan, a porn star. He has unconsciously built a new family around himself and the men in his life, his co-stars, recognise the need in him to be touched and petted and look after him well. Two years into this new life he meets Jonah who will rock his world and change everything.

    Jonah has no experience of the world Ethan lives in. His is a twenty something year old virgin whose life revolves around work, home and looking after his dying sister. He may be the inexperienced one in the relationship but he has an uncanny way of reading Ethan and knowing what he needs. Slowly h e ingratiates himself into Ethans world and shows strength and maturity when the secrets start to come out.

    Even though Ethan is its own story it runs at the same time and therefore alongside Chase and Dex. There are events that happen that you will recognise from both the previous books. To get the most out of the stories and understand the characters I think it is imperative that you read all the books in order.

    Ethan and Jonah are great together but there is very little romance. Back to Amy Lane, if I would describe her writing with the word angst then I would describe her characters in this series as broken. Oh boy do they all have issues. The drama that surrounds this small group would be overwhelming in real life but somehow it still seems very real. There is no fluff. They might get their happy endings but the woman makes them bleed for it!
    I thoroughly enjoyed my second visit to the Johnnies characters. I you haven’t read this series all I would ask is. Why not?

    Narration
    Looking through the number of audio books that Sean Crisden has narrated it is obvious he is a popular choice. From recent experience I have discovered that you need to listen to each book individually. Where you may not like a narration of one book by a person you may end up loving the next. Sean was near perfect for Ethan. For nearly 11 hours I listened as his voice flowed through the story clearly. He didn’t make the sex scenes sound ‘squicky’ and he portrayed each of the characters as I imagined them in my head.

  • "a tale of two halves"

    2 of 2 helpful votes

    The narrator was good. He really brought me along with this one.

    This story featured Danny Butler, a drug dealer who was pulled over on a weapons charge and the FBI was leaning on him to testify against his boss. After his boss sent some goons to silence him, Danny had to go on the run while waiting for the trial. FBI agent Miller Sutton was the FBI agent who worked tirelessly for 3 years to bring down the Crime Lord Hinestroza, so he wasn't going to let anything happen to his star witness Danny Butler.

    While on the run, Danny and Miller got to know each other and soon started sleeping together. There was a lot at stake as Miller is an FBI agent (with a fiancee) and Danny is a felon. The decks were stacked high, and soon Danny and Miller felt the weight of all their past choices, and it seemed like their love wouldn't survive.

    I loved the first half of the story, and the second half dragged a little bit. I think it was because the first half was the discovery of their love and while the second half was the discovery of the individuals as "gay" men (self discovery). Danny carried a lot of pain and self loathing, so I am glad he started feeling like he was worth something by the end. Miller had no insight to himself, but Danny's love forced him to come clean to himself and then everyone else. It cost him, but he gained self respect. I enjoyed seeing how they both battled separate demons, but realized they are stronger together.

    I wish the author gave an epilogue about Rachel, Miller's fiance...and maybe the crime syndicate Danny was running from.

    Miller Sutton, a by-the-book FBI agent, is starting to see some troubling shades of gray in his black-and-white world. He comes face-to-face with his doubts in the person of Danny Butler, a mid-level drug runner Miller hopes to use to catch a much larger fish: Roberto Hinestroza, a drug lord Miller has pursued for years. Danny has no interest in being a witness against his boss, both out of a sense of twisted loyalty and because he knows double-crossing Hinestroza is a sure death sentence.

    Since 9/11, Brooklyn firefighter Griff Muir has wrestled with impossible feelings for his best friend and partner at Ladder 181, Dante Anastagio. Unfortunately, Dante is strictly a ladies’ man, and the FDNY isn’t exactly gay-friendly. For ten years, Griff has hidden his heart in a half-life of public heroics and private anguish. Griff’s caution and Dante’s cockiness make them an unbeatable team. To protect his buddy, there’s nothing Griff wouldn’t do… until a nearly bankrupt Dante proposes the worst possible solution: HotHead.com, a gay porn website where uniformed hunks get down and dirty.

Caleb is deceptively normal for a guy who hasn't left his apartment in three years, and his friendly, caring personality tugs on heartstrings Logan didn't know he had.
