The story was pretty good but I was frustrated by the narration. I kept thinking if he would just slow down then more of the emotion would come through.
The story was okay but the narrator either showed no emotion or was over dramatic. Completely took away from the story.
Different narrator and more sounds from the encounters. The stories a little longer as well.
Paul Morey, Sean Crisden or Robert Nieman
The way Jory goes from one thought to the next and when people don't keep up with him it can be hilarious. Laughed out loud several times during vol. 1 & 2.
I want to start by saying I really love Mary Calmes books. I did however have a few things that got to me by the end and could just be my own pet peeves. 1 - I understood by the first volume that EVERYONE loves Jory and all the men want to sleep with him or be with him. This seemed so overdone that I started cringing when it still continued in this book. She also repeatedly goes over this with his brother Dane as well as Sam but Jory is focused on the most. Really? No one is LOVED by all. If you follow the series - these are NOT stand alone books so the author should not be repeatedly going over the stuff in the first volume and I see this is a pattern that is to continue in Bulletproof which I am listening to now. 2 - I usually find the endearment "baby" a total turn on till Sam used it so much that it lost the effect. 3 - Jory has consistently through both volumes tried to remain friends with guys that want to still be in his bed. HELLO???? If they still want to be in your bed then they don't see you as just a friend and Jory comes across clueless is this regard. On the upside he has a quick wit, charming personality and I love the fact that his filter is usually turned off and says what he thinks. That is refreshing.
The story was actually ok. The narrator seemed older than what I pictured the characters as in the story so it was distracting from the story
if she has a different narrator
Robert Nieman for younger characters. Sean Crisden , Paul Morey, or Jack Lefleur for mature characters.
Yes, I love to listen to Robert Nieman's voice narrating audio books.
He brings out the characters in the story
Yes. I think the story was well written and as always Charlie David does a great job of delivering on the narrators side too.
Simple Men by Eric Arvin which also happens to be narrated by Charlie David. In both books it's about coming out where Boy Midflight is based around a character that is 18 Simple Men the character is older.
When Ashley confronts Chris towards the end and how Michail lets him go to do that.
Yes, I could feel Ashley's frustration in finding love (even though he is only 18). Most of us are hoping to find THE One. I also caught myself laughing out loud with all the self dialog Ashley has with himself. When things are new we all seem to have these same thoughts running through our minds. I'd hear Ashley say something to himself and think, wow, okay I've said that to myself and just start laughing. Charlie also has a way with narration as well. The audio book makes it feel like Ashley is talking directly to you (like he was a friend that was sitting on your couch). Conversations go adrift sometimes and he has to pull himself back to the original thought, just like our everyday conversations. I really loved this book!
Yes, Andrew Grey is a great author and Sean Crisden is a great narrator.
Robbie, I love when authors have characters that are not perfect, except in the eyes of the person that loves them. Robbie not only had to overcome his blindness but also his overprotective mother and to take the leap of faith that Joey would always catch him when he fell.
I am a big fan of Sean Crisden's narrations. I did however have a difficult time with the voice he used for Geoff. The first two stories of this series were narrated by Sawyer Allerde, which I thought did a great job as well. That being said the voice Sawyer used to establish Geoff's speech was masculine and the speech Sean used for Geoff was feminine. It was very, very difficult to reconcile these two voices as being the same Geoff. I would actually cringe when I heard Geoff speaking from this book through the rest of the series. When a narrator takes over on a story that the characters voice or speech pattern has already been established they should not change it so drastically as was done with Geoff. Especially when they are a main character.
It would be a toss up between Eli and Robbie. I find both men fascinating and yummy!
