    Bear, Otter, and the Kid survived last summer with their hearts and souls intact. They've moved into the Green Monstrosity, and Bear is finally able to admit his love for the man who saved him from himself. But that's not the end of their story. How could it be? The boys find that life doesn't stop just because they got their happily ever after. There's still the custody battle for the Kid. The return of Otter's parents. A first trip to a gay bar. The Kid goes to therapy, and Mrs. Paquinn decides that Bigfoot is real.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Who We Are to be better than the print version?

    This is one of my favorite books, and Charlie David really brought it to life. He did such a fabulous job of narrating Bear and his somewhat insane thought process. The narration definitely added to my enjoyment.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Who We Are?

    The dinner party scene made me laugh out loud. The hospital scenes made me cry.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The dinner party, absolutely hysterical.


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

    It made me do both.


    Any additional comments?

    I've bought and read quite a few audible books in the last few months, and this one was among the best I've listened to. I can honestly say that the narrator made it even better. Job well done.

    Weber Yates's dreams of stardom are about to be reduced to a ranch hand’s job in Texas, and his one relationship is with a guy so far out of his league he might as well be on the moon. Or at least in San Francisco, where Weber stops to see him one last time before settling down to the humble, lonely life he figures a frog like him has coming.

    Would you try another book from Mary Calmes and/or K.C. Kelly?

    I have a Calmes addiction, but the narration was almost intolerable.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Frog?

    I love the opening chapter, with the MCs making contact with each other after a long separation, and some background information interwoven into that conversation.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator's accent and interpretation of Weber was way over the top. It made the character seem older and dumber than he actually is.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Frog?

    Not a thing, it's one of my favorite books.


    Any additional comments?

    After waiting so long for this to come out on audio, I'm really disappointed. I managed to listen to it all the way through, but I expect I won't ever listen to it again.

    When physics grad student Fielding Monroe and skirt-chaser and football player Mick Colman become college housemates, they're both in for a whole new education. Mick looks out for the absent-minded genius, and he helps Fielding clean up his appearance and discover all the silly pleasures his strict upbringing as a child prodigy denied him. They become best friends. It's all well and good until they run into a cheerleader who calls Mick the “best kisser on campus”.

    What did you love best about Blame It on the Mistletoe?

    I haven't listened to any other audio books by this narrator, but he was perfect for this one. I loved this book when I read it but enjoyed it much more in audio. The first scene where Mick and Fielding got hot and heavy was, wow, turn on the AC because I'm going up in flames.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Blame It on the Mistletoe?

    Definitely the first time they get together.


    Which character – as performed by Jason Frazier – was your favorite?

    Mick. I didn't feel like this was a narrator reading, but more that I was really listening to Mick's inner dialogue.


    If you could take any character from Blame It on the Mistletoe out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Fielding, because he looks at everything from a different perspective than most people.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommend in audio.
