Follow the guys on their world-spanning adventure as they defeat mobsters, an evil step-mother, a rakish brother-in-law and pirates. No, really - pirates! Plus, there's an underground super-base. And hockey. Come for the romance, stay for the hockey.

    What did you love best about Glen & Tyler's Honeymoon Adventure?

    How their loving relationship emerges.


    What other book might you compare Glen & Tyler's Honeymoon Adventure to and why?

    I cannot think of anything, really. There are many gay romance books, and some of them with adventure, but this contains a lot of love, but nothing explicit at all. That is why it is difficult to compare it.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Absolutely the "You may kiss or embrace" kiss and the aftermath


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    A perfect relationship between two super-rich, every-day, male super heroes.


    Any additional comments?

    really loved it. The first time around I missed the actual bedroom action, but that was because I expected it. It is great just like this.

    One of the bestselling novels of the 19th century, King Solomon's Mines has inspired dozens of adventure stories, including Edgar Rice Burroughs's Tarzan books and the Indiana Jones movies. Vivid and enormously action-packed, Henry Rider Haggard's tale of danger and discovery continues to shock and thrill, as it has since it was first presented to the public and heralded as "the most amazing book ever written."

    I admit, I did not really know what to expect from this book, but I was curious, so I purchased it. That was a great decision. This book was thoroughly entertaining with so many facets to be surprised by. Love and grief and battle and friendship and wickedness. It was fun. The style takes a bit of getting used to, but fits the story perfectly.

    Story

    I know, I am in the minority, but this book was anti-climactic. It was cute, and who does not like a happily ever after, but I kept waiting for something exciting to happen and then the book was over. I love the first two books, and at least there is closure, but I did not love it. The narrator, however, was great, as always.

    Do you believe in love at first sight? Sanford Stewart sure doesn't. In fact, he pretty much believes in the exact opposite, thanks to the Homo Jock King. It seems Darren Mayne lives for nothing more than to create chaos in Sandy's perfectly ordered life, just for the hell of it. Sandy despises him, and nothing will ever change his mind. Or so he tells himself.

    Do you believe in love at first sight? Paul Auster doesn't. Paul doesn't believe in much at all. He's thirty, slightly overweight, and his best features are his acerbic wit and the color commentary he provides as life passes him by. His closest friends are a two-legged dog named Wheels and a quasibipolar drag queen named Helena Handbasket. He works a dead-end job in a soul-sucking cubicle, and if his grandmother's homophobic parrot insults him one more time, Paul is going to wring its stupid neck.

    Story

    My advice is to listen to this when you are not in a restaurant or where a lot of people are. I was completely unsuspecting, so I did start the book in a restaurant and I received a few weird looks when I burst out laughing.

    It is also tender and sweet and full of love, all kinds of it. It is not steamy by any means, but the story does not really lend itself to it either. You will find insinuation and teasing, though.

    I think it is delightful and I have listened to it at least five times. I am not a general fan of the author, but this one is stellar. My favorite character is Johnny Depp ;-) The narration also hits the spot.

    Only a privileged few know L'Ange's head of security, Arman de Soto, is a shifter, and even fewer know he's been systematically killing off a pack of werewolves. The reason for this vengeance is a secret Arman trusts with no one, quite the opposite of his obvious longtime pursuit of the chateau's overseer, Linus Hobbes. Despite Arman's reputation as a loner, the only thing he needs to complete his life is Linus. Predator and prey just don't mix, but Arman won't give him up.

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”.

    This was absolutely perfect. It is short, yes, but wonderfully developed and so very cute, with angst and misunderstanding and love and hotness.

    Don't get fooled by the weird title or not very good description. That made me skeptical, but it is very much worth listening to. That is, of course, if you like that type of story, as I obviously do.

Even years later, he's buried in his grief, throwing himself into managing Big Eddie's convenience store in the small-town of Roseland, Oregon. Surrounded by his mother and three aunts, he lives day to day, struggling to keep his head above water. But Roseland is no ordinary place.

    Story

    I had doubts about this book, based on the description, but when I read all the reviews I decided that, as it sometimes happens, the description is just not very good.

    I have to say that I have been rarely as disappointed with a book as with this one. I am aware that this is probably because I expected so much, but I cannot help but feel let down.
    The story is long-winded, it is not moving, or particularly romantic, and it is also completely predictable. There was not one moment where I laughed out loud or was moved to tears, and at least the former happened all the time with one of the author's other books.

    One thing about the narrator: He really is amazing. From my perspective there is not much he could do with this book, but he made it possible for me to at least listen to the end.

    Overall, for me it was wasted credit.

    Arthur MacArthur needs a job, and not just for the money. Before he dropped out of school to support his younger sister, he loved being a research assistant at the university. But working for a dragon, one of the rarest and least understood magical beings, has unforeseen complications. While Arthur may be the only applicant who isn’t afraid of Philbert Jones in his dragon form, the instant attraction he feels for his new employer is beyond disconcerting.

    Story

    I have this as an ebook, and I absolutely love the story. It is also much better than the first one in the series, I think. The narration is really horrible, though. I listened to the sample and realized it there, so I cannot really blame anybody for my purchase but myself. I like the story so much, though, that I thought how bad can it be? I admit, it can be really bad. The voices can hardly be distinguished, and the pronounciation and emphasis of emotions feels all wrong to me. That is aside from the fact that the book could probably be two hours shorter, if the narration would be conducted at a normal speed. I am sad, but it is what it is. I recommend actually reading the book, as it is a much more enjoyable experience. I will avoid the narrator in the future.
