    Since 9/11, Brooklyn firefighter Griff Muir has wrestled with impossible feelings for his best friend and partner at Ladder 181, Dante Anastagio. Unfortunately, Dante is strictly a ladies’ man, and the FDNY isn’t exactly gay-friendly. For ten years, Griff has hidden his heart in a half-life of public heroics and private anguish. Griff’s caution and Dante’s cockiness make them an unbeatable team. To protect his buddy, there’s nothing Griff wouldn’t do… until a nearly bankrupt Dante proposes the worst possible solution: HotHead.com, a gay porn website where uniformed hunks get down and dirty.

    What did you like about this audiobook?

    I'm actually planning to buy the kindle version in Spanish! I wouldn't listen to it again though.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    From the very beginning it traps you and doesn't let you go! I liked G's story and how he was so close to the Anastagios. They loved him so much! It's so incredible that someone so hot and handsome as Griff doesn't even know he is. D is also an incredible character. They do make a great team!


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    The one at the station, when D is trying to convince G to go along with him to Alek's office.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    I'd love to have a romantic dinner with Griffin.


    Do you have any additional comments?

    It's a great story, I really hope it gets the attention the of some producer and makes it into a film.

    What made the experience of listening to Cop Out the most enjoyable?

    The voice of the narrator was kind of sexy. I thought his imitation of the Irish accent was charming/funny.


    What other book might you compare Cop Out to and why?

    I haven't read or listened to any other book like it.


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

    No.


    Who was the most memorable character of Cop Out and why?

    The main character of course. The other are "very" secondary.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed it, but it seems hard to think that someone, especially a cop, has reached that age without giving any kind of thought about having sex with another man. It also seems unrealistic that he dealt with it with such ease. It was enjoyable though.

    Tristan Moreau loves his job as chief administrative officer and personal assistant to Webber Kincaid, President, Chairman, and CEO of Kincaid International. It would be the perfect job...if only he hadn't fallen in love with his boss as well as the work. After two years, he's still doing everything in his power to keep his feelings hidden-mostly because he wants to protect the reputation of his famous boss but also because he wants to keep his job.

    Cole Reid has been a social recluse since he was 15, when he was outed by his high school baseball team. Since then, his obsessive behavior and sarcastic nature have driven away most of the population, and everyone else hates him because he's gay. As he sees it, he's bound to repulse any prospective friends, let alone boyfriends, so why bother? By the time Cole enters college, he's become a loner - but it's not a problem until his roommate graduates and the housing department assigns Ellis Montgomery to move in with Cole.

    The romance.

    State trooper Brandt's new assignment to infiltrate a sex-cam operation puts him in a very uncomfortable position, especially since he'll have to perform naked on camera for his audition. Fortunately his partner and best friend, Donnelly, has his back - whether that means helping Brandt shop gay boutiques for sexy underwear or offering Jager and encouragement while he researches porn. Despite his mortification, Brandt gives the audition his best "shot" - and becomes an overnight sensation.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Frat House Troopers to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Frat House Troopers?

    When officer Brandt faced officer Donnelly in his apartment.


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

    The feelings.


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

    No. The beginning is a bit slow, which is understandable since the scenario has to be established. I got a bit bored though, right after the party at Donnelly's it gets interesting. There's basically no sex before that.


    Any additional comments?

    I was seriously considering returning the audiobook but then story had a plot twist and got me totally hooked.

    Danny Marshal has always lived his life out loud, but his androgynous appearance is only a small part of who he is. One night at a frat party, Danny meets Lance Lenard, football jock and apparent straight guy. Lance is shocked when he's immediately attracted to Danny's feminine side. Danny is happy to be the subject of Lance's first man-on-man experiment-until Lance begins to struggle with the fact that despite his appearance, Danny is indeed a man.

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

    I have only listened to 4 audiobooks so far, and I can say beyond the shadow of a doubt that this is the best one ever.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Like I said in the headline. From the beginning I didn't want to like Danny. I am not very attracted to M/M stories where one of the characters is a full-fledged diva that throws a tantrum occasionally with some witty remarks telling people off... It is a major turn off for me! The narrator even captured that annoying part of Danny, there were moments in which I wanted to get inside the story and totally bitch-slap Danny for being such an over the top drama queen, but then again, that was exactly what I learned to love about him at the end of the story! As people, we sometimes have so much emotional baggage that for some reason (and I include myself) we can't get past the facade. I want Danny to be my friend! Period! As for Lance... I loved the way he was portrayed... so big and brute yet so gentle with Danny.


    What about Andrew McFerrin’s performance did you like?

    I have a question/proposal for you Andy... Can I have you next to me reading stories FOREVER? Gosh! You got me so turned on sometimes!!! Just imagining you whispering in my ear I got the chills!


    Who was the most memorable character of Plan B and why?

    Danny and Lance... in that order! I know a lot of people liked Danny more (it's understandable why since the story is told from his point of view) but I really want to know more about Lance. He is a man of few words but with such a big heart! I would definitely love to read/listen to a sequel to this story but told from his POV.


    Any additional comments?

    I've listened to 3 stories this past week: 1) An unconventional Courtship 2) My roommate's a Jock and 3) Plan B. Although I liked the two previous ones a lot, after listening to Plan B I feel like I need some time to keep entertaining the story in my head! I DIDN'T WANT IT TO END! My next listening will be Frat House Troopers and I don't want to start yet simply because I don't want to forget about Danny and Lance...
