    Zev Hassick is surprised and confused when he finds himself attracted to his best friend. His very human, very male best friend. Zev is the son of the pack Alpha, regarded as the strongest wolf in generations, born to lead. And everyone knows a male shifter has to mate with a female of his own kind to keep his humanity. So shifters can't be gay, right? Jonah Marvel wants a relationship with Zev, his best friend, the man he has loved since childhood. It wasn't easy to maintain that relationship over years spent living apart while Jonah studied to become a doctor.

    What made the experience of listening to Wake Me Up Inside the most enjoyable?

    The story unfolded very well, though I had figured out that detail about Jonah's mother fairly early on.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Wake Me Up Inside?

    When Jonah and Zev finally tied.


    What does Charlie David bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I think Charlie David was a great narrator


    Who was the most memorable character of Wake Me Up Inside and why?

    Zev, he is the ultimate Alpha


    Any additional comments?

    I've never really given stories like this a chance which I don't understand why. I love to watch these type of shows, but when it comes to books, I never give them a shot. I was surprised because I was completely invested in the characters and the story.

    Jason Grant doesn't have much, aside from a beat-up old guitar and knack for getting kicked out of foster homes. His latest placement is set to be just another in a long line of failures. Then he meets Caesar Hubbard, a handsome guy who lives down the hall. For the first time in his life, Jason wants to stay, which means learning to be part of a family, and not letting his feelings - or his actions - ruin his first real chance of falling in love.

    What did you love best about Something Like Spring?

    Ben and Tim! Lol, I loved the plot of the story and that it introduced us to a completely new story in the series as well as expanded on Ben and Tim's story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Something Like Spring?

    Ryan shooting Tim. At first, I felt like it was unnecessary to reintroduce Ryan into the series. But, I understood that he was a catalyst for Jason realizing his feelings for Ben and Tim. I thought that Cesar was going to be the Paramedic that came to the scene to take Tim to the hospital, but that wasn't the case.


    What about Kevin R. Free’s performance did you like?

    Kevin has been consistent throughout the series.


    If you could rename Something Like Spring, what would you call it?

    I would've named this book Something Like Home. Yea, I know it's cliche but, Jason was always sort of in search of a family and home and he finally found that towards the end.


    Any additional comments?

    Throughout Spring, there was a feeling that the characters in this book sort of paralleling the characters of Summer. For instance, Jason was our Ben, Cesar was our Tim, and William was our Jace. I've always been a fan of Tim (he's my favorite character) but I did not like Cesar one bit from the beginning. Vice versa, i wasn't that much of a fan of Jace, but I loved William, especially for Jason. I feel that Jay wanted to give all of the TeamJace fans there Ben/Jace HEA even if it wasn't really them. I really enjoyed this book. It was a great way to end the series, even though I feel that there could be more to explore in Ben and Tim's new family.

    There are two sides to every story. When you're Tim Wyman, sometimes there are three. Tim hoped moving to Texas would mean a new beginning, but he soon finds himself falling into the same tired patterns. Until he meets recklessly brave Benjamin Bentley, who introduces Tim to a world of love, sex, and warmth. Certain that society won't understand what he and Ben have together, Tim struggles to protect their relationship, even if it means twisting the truth. Buried beneath his own deceptions, Tim must claw his way to the surface in the hopes of learning to fly.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Something Like Winter the most enjoyable?

    Getting to hear the story from Tim's POV was the most rewarding for me. I know that it sounds weird but I connected with him from Summer and he has always been my favorite character.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was refreshing getting to dig deeper into why Tim is the way that he is, and what actually happened during the time that he and Ben weren't actually together. Being introduced to the characters in Tim's life was also great.


    Have you listened to any of Kevin R. Free’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've just finished listening to Something Like Spring and of course I've heard the whole series now. Kevin keeps it pretty consistent.


    If you could rename Something Like Winter, what would you call it?

    I wouldn't rename the book because it fits perfectly with the series. The overall tone of this book is heavier than Summer, so Winter is perfect for Tim's story.


    Any additional comments?

    With the plot of this series, people usually love Ben and are either TeamTim or TeamJace. Most people usually sway towards the latter. I have always felt that Ben and Tim were meant to be together. Don't get me wrong, Jace is an absolute beautiful character but he never really did it for me. This book just brings Ben and Tim's story full circle for me. Though we get more of the story in Spring, Winter is where my heart really melts for Ben and Tim. #TeamTim

    Detective Matthew Bennett doesn't believe in ghosts. So when the spirit of a murdered child leads him to her body, he's shaken to the core - and taken off the case. Unable to explain his vision, or to let go of the investigation, Matthew turns to renowned medium Kiernan Fitzpatrick. Though he has doubts about Kiernan's claims to communicate with the dead, Matt is nevertheless drawn to the handsome psychic, who awakens feelings he thought were long-buried.

    What made the experience of listening to A Reason to Believe the most enjoyable?

    The story was for the most part very well written and developed.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character in this story was Matt. He felt very much like a regular guy to me, very personable and relateable.


    What does Jack LeFleur bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I think he is one of the best Narrators that I have heard! He was very good! He gave the characters the perfect voices.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Some parts of the book made me laugh, Kiernen was funny.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a very good read/listen. I thoroughly enjoyed the progression of the story and relationship between the main characters. My only gripe with this story is how Abby's realization and acceptance of what happened to her came too easily and it just seemed to wrap up the story to make it a happy ending. I would love to get a sequel to this, to see the progression of Matt and Kiernen's relationship.
