    Cayce Pollard is an expensive, spookily intuitive market-research consultant. In London on a job, she is offered a secret assignment: to investigate some intriguing snippets of video that have been appearing on the Internet. An entire subculture of people is obsessed with these bits of footage, and anybody who can create that kind of brand loyalty would be a gold mine for Cayce's client. But when her borrowed apartment is burgled, she realizes there's more to this project than she had expected.

    "Fantastic Narration"
    Overall

    While this was a fantastic book, I have to give recognition to Shelly Frasier. Her narration was perfectly matched to Cayce Pollards character; intelligent and engaging. I am listening to "Spook Country" and countless times I wish Ms. Frasier was reading it.

    Leyton lived a quiet, simple life as a prosperous, thriving merchant alongside his twin brother Liam. But that life is shattered when Liam goes missing, and Leyton is told that the only way to save his brother's life is to seduce a king. The task proves to be even more difficult than Leyton feared, and soon he is swept up in a tide of political machinations, betrayal, and a looming threat of execution once the men who blackmailed him are caught.

    Story

    I'm not sure why there was a 1 star rating for this. I've listened to a lot of M/M romance, and I really enjoyed this. It's not deep literature, but it had and interesting and unique plot, told from multiple points of view, wasn't too mentally taxing or difficult to follow. The story was romantic without being too explicit.

    This is a book I will listen to again and again. I would highly recommend it to anyone into the M/M romance genre.

  • Out of Position (Dev and Lee)

    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.

    Story

    While the editing and narration were slightly off (someone needs to tell the narrator how to pronounce Penelope), this is one of the best gay romance books I've listened to. Characters are subtle and well rounded. The dialog is some of the best I've ever read.

    If you are a fan of gay romance, buy this book. I'm not a furry - so my enjoyment of the characters is purely based on the character development and story.
