Battling nightmares and addiction, he leaves the concrete jungle for New Mexico horse country, hoping to start over on his uncle's ranch.

    It was good, but the fact the older guy {logan} kept calling the younger guy (kaden) a teenager, it freaked me out and it was constantly used. Other wise it was a good book.

    Nobody knows the real Chase. Chase Summers has a razor blade to his wrist and the smell of his lover's goodbye clinging to his skin. He has a door in his heart so frightening he'd rather die than open it, and the lies he's used to block it shut are thinning with every forbidden touch. Chase has spent his entire life unraveling, and his decision to set his sexuality free in secret has only torn his mind apart faster.

    One recommendation I have is to read "Dex in blue" That's the first book in the series, and it sets up "Chase in Shadow" and makes it even better.

    This is such a good book, Chase and Tommy ripped my heart out. There were tears and sniffling. But The HEA is worth all the pain and hurt.

    I love Chase and Tommy and all the supporting cast, well except the dad (he's a jerk). The story drew me in to the very last word. Amy Lane can tell a darn good story.
    Sean Crisden did a wonderful narration as usual and i was happy to see it was him doing it.

    Danny Marshal has always lived his life out loud, but his androgynous appearance is only a small part of who he is. One night at a frat party, Danny meets Lance Lenard, football jock and apparent straight guy. Lance is shocked when he's immediately attracted to Danny's feminine side. Danny is happy to be the subject of Lance's first man-on-man experiment-until Lance begins to struggle with the fact that despite his appearance, Danny is indeed a man.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I love this story, I've read the ebook more than one, I did not make it half way through the audio version before i deleted it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked them all :)


    What three words best describe Andrew McFerrin’s voice?

    perfectly fine and boring, totally ruined the story. also as a pointer i'd say quit with the up down volume with words it sounds stupid.


    Any additional comments?

    This version is no where as good as if you were reading it enough said!

    Cole Reid has been a social recluse since he was 15, when he was outed by his high school baseball team. Since then, his obsessive behavior and sarcastic nature have driven away most of the population, and everyone else hates him because he's gay. As he sees it, he's bound to repulse any prospective friends, let alone boyfriends, so why bother? By the time Cole enters college, he's become a loner - but it's not a problem until his roommate graduates and the housing department assigns Ellis Montgomery to move in with Cole.

    Would you consider the audio edition of My Roommate's a Jock? Well, Crap! to be better than the print version?

    absolutely not, I've read the book more than once and loved it but I have no desire to listen to the audio version again.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love cole, he is quirky


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

    I think he did a great job but that being said, I didn't like his voice or something, it just got on my nerves


    Any additional comments?

    I think it's a great story, It's sweet, funny and a tiny bit of angst.

    Forty-five-year-old English professor Nathan Qells is very good at making people feel important. What he's not very good at is sticking around afterward. He's a nice guy; he just doesn't feel things the way other people do. So even after all the time he's spent taking care of Michael, the kid across the hall, he doesn't realize that Michael's mob muscle uncle and guardian, Andreo Fiore, has slowly been falling in love with him. Dreo has bigger problems than getting Nate to see him as a potential partner.

    I was disappointed in this book. To me the first half was boring and seemed way to long. The second half was better. It didn't evoke any feelings when I listened to it. I liked to be swept into what ever book I'm reading and I wasn't feeling this one.

    Devlin Miski thought coming out on national TV would be the hardest part about being a gay football player. But it's when his press conference is over that the trouble really starts. The athletic tiger and his boyfriend Lee, a fox with a tongue as quick as his wit, still won't get many breaks in their fight for understanding. They'll need to deal with a stubborn reporter determined to get a story any way he can, furious parents, and hostile teammates - not to mention each other.

    Dev is a football player at Forester University, a small liberal arts college where he and his teammates get to strut around and have their pick of the girls on Friday nights. That's as good as it gets - until he meets Lee, a fox with a quick wit and an attractive body. Problem is, Lee's not a girl. He's a gay fox, an activist who never dreamed he'd fall for a football player. As their attraction deepens into romance, it's hard enough for them to handle each other, let alone their inquisitive friends, family, and co-workers.

    Would you listen to Out of Position (Dev and Lee) again? Why?

    It surprises me to say this but yes. I didn't realize at first that it was a animal fantasy sort of read. I was like oh no but I got immersed in the story and I loved it. Football, animals and all.


    What did you like best about this story?

    There was allot of depth to the story and I was hooked. I did tune out some of the explaining of football:)


    What aspect of Jeremy Sewell’s performance would you have changed?

    I wouldn't change it per-say but at the beginning it was like a newbie was reading but that changed, maybe he got more comfortable with the story. he did fine after the first few chapter even better than fine.


    Who was the most memorable character of Out of Position (Dev and Lee) and why?

    I loved Lee the Fox and I really did, great character and his lauren Bacally voice, I just liked it.

    Families should grow, not shrink. It's been on Jon Kechter's mind since before he tied the knot with his millionaire lover, Cole Fenton. Now hoping to adopt, Jon and Cole search for a mother-to-be willing to let them love her baby, but the interminable wait is wearing on them both. Jon is close to his father, George, but until Cole, he didn't have anyone else. Now George is pushing Cole to reconcile with his estranged mother. When the three of them spend Christmas with her in Munich, the results are disastrous. Jon and Cole resolve to stay positive, but no hope exists without a twinge of fear.

    What did you love best about Fear, Hope, and Bread Pudding?

    I loved every word. I'm was so happy it is available on audible.com.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fear, Hope, and Bread Pudding?

    It was so heart wrenching, I cried till i got a headache :) When George walked into the kitchen and coles mom was sitting at the table, It was just so beautiful with his flash backs. I also luurved when the baby was born of course :) Also when Jonathon held the baby the first time. Ok I seriously loved the whole book.


    Have you listened to any of Paul Morey’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes I have and I like him just fine, I was a little apprehensive about a new narrator on the last book, being the first 4 books had the same narrator, that I really liked.


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

    Yes I've been hoping for it,.


    Any additional comments?

    If you haven't listen to The Coda series by Marie Sexton, I highly recommend them. They are funny, smexy, a little heart breaking some times. Fear, hope and bread pudding was a perfect ending to a wonderful series :)
