    The most important things in Simon Murray’s life are football, friends, and film - in that order. His friends despair of him ever meeting someone, but despite his loneliness, Simon is cautious about looking for more. Then his best friends drag him to a party, where he barges into a football conversation and ends up defending the honour of star forward Declan Tyler - unaware that the athlete is present. In that first awkward meeting, neither man has any idea they will change each other's lives forever.

    "Daddy" is not a title Rue Murray wanted, but he never thought he'd have sex with a woman either. Now he's the unwitting father of a newborn named Alice. Between bartending and cosmetology school, Rue doesn't have time for babies, but he can't give her up. What Rue needs is a babysitter, and he's running out of options. He's on the verge of quitting school to watch Alice himself when he remembers his reclusive new neighbor, Erik.

    Rue. Period.

    He was the man for this book.

    yes.

    Making big plans for the future is not in his nature - Jared is content with his single status and enjoying all the benefits of that lifestyle. He doesn't even realise something is missing in his life. Until he meets Fenix. Fenix Bergman has a dream - to perform on Broadway. When he gets offered the lead role in Poison - a new musical based in London, he accepts, immediately recognising the huge potential of the show.

    Where does Dance rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I'd say in the top ten. The narration breaths new life into a story I've read countless times. made it seem like I was reading it for the first time.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dance?

    For me it was when Fenix decides not to wait for the future and tell Jared he still loves him.


    What does Todd Smith bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I just liked his voice.


    Any additional comments?

    I would have liked to see this story at least nominated for the rainbow awards in the category of best cover and best Romance.I was Very happy see there was an audio version of this book and hope MASK will be in audio as well.

    "Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness… He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily…Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds…and desires."

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would If they are looking for a something smutty


    Did Jill Redfield do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I hated Gideon's voice. Think she was trying too hard to sound male.


    Any additional comments?

    I know a lot of people are saying then like this better than Fifty shades and I agree it was written better but there was nothing original about this story to me.
