    Jory Harcourt doesn't have to go looking for trouble. Wherever he goes, it seems to find him - particularly when his partner, Sam Kage, is working undercover on a federal task force. After the recession forces him to close his business, Jory goes to work as a matchmaker and event planner. From there, it's only a matter of time before his big mouth and up-front attitude make him the rope in a tug-of-war between a trust-fund baby and a drug-smuggling criminal.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Bulletproof to be better than the print version?

    For the first four books in this series, the audio version was certainly better than the print, due to a fantastic reader. This book, however, was pretty poorly read. I find myself wishing I had read the print version instead.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was funny and lighthearted, while still portraying a great relationship between Jory and Sam.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jeff Gelder?

    The narrator for the previous books in this series was fantastic.


    If you could rename Bulletproof, what would you call it?

    Hmm... think this was a great title for the book, so I wouldn't change it.

  • The Merchant Adventurer

    An ordinary, money-grubbing Merchant struggling to make a coin off penniless, incompetent adventurers is forced to take on the impossible quest of saving his town and rescuing the woman he loves from a treacherous and powerful Wizard. A battle of wit, wits and haggling that is part homage to, part skewer of the richly worked and often overwrought fantasy genre. An artful, satire of dungeon crawls and cRPG's, the Merchant Adventurer is part Princess Bride, part Dungeon Pawn Stars and a rollicking good read.

    What did you love best about The Merchant Adventurer?

    For anyone who's ever payed a Fantasy RPG, this is a must listen. Patrick McLean does an amazing job of making fun of so many fantasy RPG tropes, while at the same time telling an interesting and engaging story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I think I fell in love with pretty much all the characters in this book (even the bad guys). The characters were all just incredibly funny, particularly as given voice by the very talented autor and narrator.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes
