This is one of those books where the audio version is much better than the written. The narrator is fantastic (Shannon Gunn) and brings a mediocre story to life In a brilliant sexy way. His voice is like black velvet as he spins the tale. This is a short story told from the middle of a post apocalyptic event; but there is no beginning or ending really. Too bad really, I would have been curious about the "save the bees" story arc, but there is no follow through. There is a whole lot of sex going on in ridiculously inappropriate times and places. It is almost funny. But that said, it wasn't painful to listen to, especially with Shannon Gunn. I'm use to him in the Men of Smithfield narrations, but in this one he may give Jack LeFleur a run.
It is worth a listen if it is on sale.
So this is the book that "tests" the relationship between Taylor and Will. Will has made some decisions that push Taylor and Taylor's insecurities are alive and kicking. This is the "game" changing book and the boys have some adventures in Paris. Great series and the narrator is still fantastic. So glad Josh Lanyon doesn't change narrators like some do.
This is a typical middle book of a series, as this is book 3 and there are at least 5 books at this point. Not bad, but not great. It is the book you have to read/listen to b/c it continues the story line, but not much happens. Taylor and Will have some adventures in the desert being chased. And there are some funny buddy moments. But it really is setting up book 4, which is really good. BTW, the narrator of this series if fantastic. Great voice and really brings life to the story.
I am really enjoying this series. Taylor and Will are quickly becoming a favorite couple. They have great adventures and this series focuses a lot more on the relationship than other Josh Lanyon series. It great seeing the passion and insecurities warring with each other. And in typical alpha male fashion, the lack of communicating the depth of feelings. Overall, a great balance without being overly dramatic. On to book 3.
This is a collection of maybe a zillion of Mr. Lanyon's short stories. Every one I wish was longer. This author just has an amazing gift for creating MCs that are smart, witty, vulnerable, endearing and any other adjective you can think of. There are different narrators for each story and they were all fantastic; not a bad one in the lot. How is that possible?! Does he have a stable of great narrators on retainer? Mr. Lanyon, please share them with the rest of the audiobook world!! Anyway, as I said, my only complaint was that the stories were not longer and were all HFN endings. Josh Lanyon doesn't believe in HEA; he just leaves you satisfied, but still wanting more.
This is the first book I've listened to by this author. The story is a series of stories of different characters in various stages in their lives. The author does a great job of eventually entwining the story lines and his writing is great. I enjoyed three of the five storylines, but two were very dark and I really didn't like them. I ended up fast forwarding through whenever Stephen and Pete's stories started, but that was a personal preference, some people may not mind. Pete was a violent closet case and Stephen was a closeted submissive with self destructive tendencies. Overall it was OK, but I don't know if I'll continue with this author.
Another great mystery/action thriller from Ms. Hawk. In this second book of the series Whyborne and Griffin travel to the town of Threshold to investigate why people are disappearing from the town. Their relationship is tested and paranormal event ensue. It is a wonderful story filled with witty and romantic dialogue and great action and suspense. The narrator does a great job, much better than the last book. Worth a credit.
I enjoyed this novella, but it was a little too short; but it packs a lot in. The MCs relationship is sweet but also very hawt. Lots of smex but it is done well. This is the first book before Alien and the Outlaw (which I listened to first). Doesn't really matter, both are stand alone reads. The narrator is very good in both. It was under $5 when I bought it and worth it at that price, but it is not worth a credit.
This was a much awaited sequel to the great Bear, Otter and the Kid. I'll admit at first I did not like that Sean Crisden wasn't the narrator. But Charlie David does a fantastic job. I just love everything about this book. I will be listening too it many times.
First off this is not a MM romance book. It is a story about coming out and coming to grips with your choices and the consequences thereof. There is no HEA, but there is LEA (life ever after). This is the story of two men, Chase and Nathan and their struggles with coming to terms with who they are and the choices they have made. I guess there is a movie and the book is based on the movie, but with a better ending. Since I haven’t seen the movie, I don’t know. But I did enjoy the book. It was gut wrenching in some places because of the family dynamics involved, but very realistic and well told. You may not feel “good” after hearing Mr. David’s excellent narration (he is also the author), but you will be hopeful and won’t be sorry you listened. I really enjoyed this and I didn’t think I would.
OMG, where do I start. First of all, the novelty of this book having animals instead of people wears off fast. Despite the references to paws, fur, tails and muzzles (better not to dwell on how kissing with tongue works with muzzles); it is basically a MM romance, complete with a lot of sex scenes Unfortunately it is not a very good MM romance and the narrator has a really annoying lisp that makes his “s” sound like “th”. In addition, he rushes and mumbles through dialogue in some places to the extent that he runs out of breath by the end. His narration is really distracting. I kept wanting to tell him to “breathe and slow down.” Most of the time he was fine, but then he would ramble through something. Weird.
With that said, at the heart, this book is a romance between a wanna be gay rights activist college student (a fox) that also loves football and a “gay for you” college football player ( a tiger). Not an original concept, but OK. Aside from the narrator’s rushing and mumbling, the basic problem with this book is I really didn’t relate or like the couple. Dev (the tiger) is an in the closet "bi" (I guess) who professes to love Lee which still keeping their relationship in the closet, sometimes literally. Lee (the fox), who dresses in women's clothes to "protect" Dev's reputation, (after "tricking" Dev into sleeping with him, yeah really!!) was annoying in his acceptance of this role and status through most of the book. After a while, I didn’t really care if they got together or not. I’m sure this is just a personal preference, which is why I gave it 3 stars; other people apparently really like this series. But in my opinion, not worth a credit.
