    Gwendolyn Kidd has met the man of her dreams. He's hot, he's sexy, and what started as a no-names-exchanged night of passion has blossomed into a year and a half-long pleasure fest. Sure, it's a little strange that he only appears in her bed at night, but Gwen is so sure he's the one, she just can't turn him away…. Hawk Delgado knows more about Gwen than she could ever imagine. She's gorgeous, headstrong, and skittish about relationships. But Hawk is facing his own demons, demons that keep him from connecting with anyone.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I absolutely recommend Kristen's books.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kate Russell’s performances?

    No. I've read Mystery Man twice, and I love it. But the more I listen to the narrated version, the more I dislike it. The inflection, the tone, and the emotion are just not adding up for me. The whiney voice she uses for the secondary characters, and the weird whispery voice she uses for the main character make everyone seem weak and annoying.

    Just out of the service, Dave Henderson is home and ready to enjoy the sexual freedom he didn’t have in the Marine Corps. When he meets Jack Stonner at a party thrown by a neighbor, Dave is immediately attracted to him and launches a seduction, one that starts with sex but soon grows into love.

    Would you try another book from John Simpson and/or John Simpson?

    I would. I liked the plot and the characters very much.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Jack and Dave?

    I'm always a sucker for the "I love you" moment.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator was terrible. He has a nasally voice, seemed to be just reading the words from the book with absolutely no prior preparation, had zero inflection or emotion.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Sure.

    Jared Thomas has lived his whole life in the small mountain town of Coda, Colorado. He can't imagine living anywhere else. Unfortunately, the only other gay man in town is twice his age and used to be his teacher, so Jared is resigned to spending his life alone... until Matt Richards walks into his life, that is. Matt has just been hired by the Coda Police Department, and he and Jared immediately become friends. Matt claims he is straight, but for Jared, having a sexy friend like Matt is way too tempting.

    What made the experience of listening to Promises the most enjoyable?

    I've read the book already, and loved the story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Unexpected love is always enjoyable to hear about.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator totally pulled me out of the story. He was rushed, mispronounced words, and had no emotion.


    If you could take any character from Promises out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Jared, of course. He's so sweet. And I'd love to see his curls.
