I don't think so. The book is a bit simplistic, but when I saw that Mr. Gunn was narrating it, I automatically bought it. He's one of my go to narrators.
This time around I could barely tolerate his characterizations. The voices were quite grating and nothing like he usually does. Doesn't seem like he was interested in what he was reading. I love his other work though.
If you want to hear better from Mr. Gunn, try listening to the L. B. Gregg stories that he narrates. I won't totally give up on this author, but will choose more carefully next time.
George Somerset is a wonderful narrator who is great with distinctive voices and he emotes very well.
Offhand, I can't think of one.
Fen. He was quite funny but also very sensitive and such a good friend. I'd love a story about him.
Whoever is reading these reviews, more Somerset please. M. J. (Hint, hint).
Tommy O'Brien brings something extra to the audio version. I really like his narrative style.
Just the other books in this series. Familiar characters and all.
Yes. Shy, by John Inman. I love that book and it's the reason why I bought the audio version of this one. Sometimes no matter how enjoyable the printed version is, a bad narrator can put you off. I've passed on many audiobooks because of terrible narration.
It made me laugh, but some parts of the story made me angry and sad.
I pray that the rest of the series will be available through Audible and that they keep this narrator. Theyd be crazy to mess up a good thing.
Wonderfully written story
I love how Leo stood up for Alex in front of his family. Great show of solidarity.
I'm going to say that I really like Nick Russo's narrative style in most books, but I feel as if he was phoning this one in. First off, the story took place in England if I'm not mistaken, so it kind of threw me that there was no British narrator. This being said, I could have overlooked that if he had sounded like the content was interesting or read with a bit more feeling. Unfortunately, his performance weighs down the great story that made me want to listen to it.
An Unlocked Heart - Throw Away the Key
I'd love to listen to more of Ms. Well's books, with the proper narrator. If you want to hear Nick at his best, listen to Chasing the Sun. He does an amazing job with that.
I love the Psy Cop series and impatiently await the release of the next one on Audible. Gomez Pugh IS Victor Bayne and Jordan was brilliant to pair them like fine wine and cheese. Oh, wait; like Body and Soul 📕📗🌈
I wish that I'd purchased this before Xmas. Such a heartwarming and charming story. Tim is such a sweetie with a big heart. Glad that Noel came around and ended up being someone worth loving. David Gillies is fast becoming one of my favorite narrators. His voices for Rudy and Jack are quite sexy. I hope we hear more from him.
I was hesitant to purchase this installment of the series until I listened to the sample. I liked the first book, but the narrator wasn't right for it. Mr. Gillies is perfect. I'm not sure if he's an Aussie, but he did a wonderful job with the accent. The only issue I had (and it's a personal thing) is that Greg never got comeuppance - at least on the page. Perhaps there will be a third book in the series?
Yes. I plan to many times. It is a hilarious, but heartwarming story about two socially
disfunctional people who find each other and fall in love under very stressful circumstances. It hit all of my emotional buttons.
The love story was great, Pedro is adorable, but the coup de grace was Stanley's comeuppance.
Frank's dad, Joe.
I can't think of a better title at this time.
The narrator used just the right tones to express what each character was like and I hope we hear more from him. John Inman is great. Please publish all of his book in audio format.
I wish Austin would have grown a pair and stood up to everyone who discounted him and his choice a bit more forcefully. I don't believe Jeff was good enough for him and I hate that he settled. There was also an unexpected plot twist that threw the whole story off for me. It's something that I don't like in my m/m books and had I been forewarned, I would have passed on it.
I am already a wine enthusiast so I thought the subject would be right up my alley.
There really wasn't a lot of detail that added to anything I wanted to learn about.
His southern accent was a bit overblown for Carson and almost nonexistent for Cormac. His interpretation of Austin's little brother was a bit too whiny IMO.
I love Josh Lanyon but, this particular piece was not what I read him for.
Waaaaaay up there.
Ms. Mattie- after Vic of course. She just brought something a little extra in my opinion.
I'm hard pressed to pick just one.
It made me scream at Vic to "Not drink the kool aid!" - or coffee in this case.
Keep 'em comin'
Way up there...
When they saved Sylvia.
I didn't hear Arthur's voice in my head, but Tyler's rendition is perfect. He does a wonderful job telling this story.
Many of Stanley's experiences mirrored my own. Not all of them good. They took me back to some very vulnerable times that I would not want to repeat. I certainly laughed out loud but teared up some, too.
John Inman has quickly become one of my favorite authors and I hope that his entire catalog of stories become available through Audible. With good narrators of course.
