    Three years ago, Bear McKenna’s mother took off for parts unknown with her new boyfriend, leaving Bear to raise his six-year-old brother Tyson, aka the Kid. Somehow they’ve muddled through, but since he’s totally devoted to the Kid, Bear isn’t actually doing much living. With a few exceptions, he’s retreated from the world, and he’s mostly okay with that - until Otter comes home. Otter is Bear’s best friend’s older brother, and as they’ve done for their whole lives, Bear and Otter crash and collide in ways neither expect.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Bear, Otter, and the Kid to be better than the print version?

    The print version was better only because I liked the sound of Kid's voice in my head better than the narrator's attempt.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I like Bear the most because of the voices in his head that he argues with. I can relate.


    What about Sean Crisden’s performance did you like?

    I didn't really care for Ty or Otters voices. I liked Creed and Bear. He portrays emotion really well


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

    The fight for him is all he's ever known...


    Any additional comments?

    I Would like to hear the next book.

    There's a dead man in Miki St. John's vintage Pontiac GTO, and he has no idea how it got there. After Miki survives the tragic accident that killed his best friend and the other members of their band, Sinner's Gin, all he wants is to hide from the world in the refurbished warehouse he bought before their last tour. But when the man who sexually abused him as a boy is killed and his remains are dumped in Miki's car, Miki fears death isn't done with him yet.

    So, first off the story is good, but the narrator is better. He brought the story to life. Sometimes its hard for me to differentiate between characters when listening to audiobooks but I had no problem this time. When there are similar accents they can often blur together but Tristan James did an excellent job without having to identify each person speaking. I put him in the same category as Scott Brick who is always a delight to listen to.

    Miller Sutton, a by-the-book FBI agent, is starting to see some troubling shades of gray in his black-and-white world. He comes face-to-face with his doubts in the person of Danny Butler, a mid-level drug runner Miller hopes to use to catch a much larger fish: Roberto Hinestroza, a drug lord Miller has pursued for years. Danny has no interest in being a witness against his boss, both out of a sense of twisted loyalty and because he knows double-crossing Hinestroza is a sure death sentence.

    What did you love best about Shades of Gray?

    The way the relationship developed between criminal and fbi guy.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Danny. He was a refreshingly honest about his actions although he had a hard time moving past them.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Different narrator. He doesn't inflect properly. It sounds like he's just reading the book instead of becoming the characters. Shannon Gunn or Chris Patton would of been better.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I listen at work

    For almost two years now, Kiera’s boyfriend, Denny, has been everything she’s ever wanted: loving, tender, and endlessly devoted to her. When they head off to a new city to start their lives together - Denny at his dream job and Kiera at a top-notch university - everything seems perfect. Then an unforeseen obligation forces the happy couple apart. Feeling lonely, confused, and in need of comfort, Kiera turns to an unexpected source - a local rock star named Kellan Kyle. At first, he’s purely a friend she can lean on, but as her loneliness grows, so does their relationship. And then one night everything changes....

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was better as a read because the narrator's voice was so monotone and boring.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kellan. He was the most interesting character and I like sensitive rockstars. Kiera was so flakey and indecisive, I wanted to smack her.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Rebekkah Ross?

    No


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Maybe


    Any additional comments?

    Although I don't care for abridged books, this was one that could stand to be cut down a little.

    An erotic gay romance, a suspenseful thriller.... A series of murders in New York City has stymied the police and FBI alike, and they suspect the culprit is a single killer sending an indecipherable message. But when the two federal agents assigned to the investigation are taken out, the FBI takes a more personal interest in the case. Special Agent Ty Grady is pulled out of undercover work. He's cocky, abrasive, and indisputably the best at what he does.

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

    You have to read this to get a baseline of the main characters, but it was very predictable and at sometimes juvenile behavior of a professional FBI or profiler was ridiculous. If you read Karin Slaughter or Linda Fairstein type books (which I do) you might get annoyed.But I urge you to keep reading the series.It gets better with each book!


    If you’ve listened to books by Abigail Roux and Madeleine Urban before, how does this one compare?

    This was ok. Slow going


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Ty and Zane beat the crap out of each other


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Stick with it if you love the characters. The plots aren't really complicated or engaging. Its all about Ty and Zane

    Baltimore is a city in alarming distress. Rising violence is fanning the flames of public outrage. Thus the FBI’s latest ideas to improve public relations: a municipal softball league and workshops for community leaders. But the new commitments just mean more time Special Agents Ty Grady and Zane Garrett have to spend apart when they’re happily exploring how to be more than by-the-book partners. Then the latest spate of crime explodes in their faces—literally.

    What did you love best about Divide and Conquer?

    I loved the interactions between Ty and Zane! Its great to see in every book how far their relationship has progressed. Its so typical guy. I like that we have two strong gay males instead of the typical macho/twink combo in a lot of mm books. The mystery/plot is an afterthought to me because its Ty and Zane that I'm interested in. Although this isnt blatant erotica, there is still plenty of hot, hot sex!


    Would you be willing to try another book from Madeleine Urban and Abigail Roux ? Why or why not?

    Yes! Ty and Zane, baby!


    Have you listened to any of Sean Crisden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. Its pretty much what I expected-hes good


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes I did lots of laughing due to Ty's bluntness and there were some tears of joy and sadness


    Any additional comments?

    When are the next books going to audio? I really can't wait for Armed and Dangerous. It love reading but hearing the characters outloud is fun
