At the Top 3 so Far with "Something Like Summer" by Jay Bell and "Hot Head" by Damon Suede.
The closest is "Hot Head".
Ty stole the show here.
The scene where the temporarily blind Zane was eavesdropping on the conversation between Ty and Nick downstairs. I was at the edge of my seat feeling what Zane must have felt regarding the true nature of Ty's and Nick's relationship. This is where I started to realize that Nick could be a threat.
Reading this 3rd book of the series is like a vacation, a break from the intensity of the preceding books. It gave the chance for the two protagonists to really have more time with each other and enjoy one other during a cruise. What's more romantic than that?
None. But I could say, it's like "Charlie's Angels" on a "Love Boat".
My only disappointment is the replacement of Sawyer Allende by Sean Crisden. Mr. Allende was perfect for the voices of Ty and Zane. Sean's depiction of Zane is most irritating by using a radio announcer's modulated voice. It wasn't very natural since. It wasn't a conversational voice.
I would take Ty. He could be a handful though but I knew I would be safe and protected. And I'm positive, I would like to receive some of that flirtation.
AGAIN, why replace a very good narrator?
I wouldn't recommend if he didn't want to fall in love with the characters and get addicted to the series. I would tell him to start with the first book. This 3rd installment is an introduction to Ty's family, the idiosyncrasies of its members and explains how Ty grew up to the person he was. This is the book where they finally accepted the reality of how much they mean to each other.
I love both Zane and Ty but my favorite parts were the psychoanalysis of Zane by Deuce .
He got Ty pretty much as I imagined the character.
When Ty finally thought to himself that he was in love with Zane.
I was greatly disappointed that Sawyer Allerde didn't continue on narrating to the remainder of the series. I got used to his performance and he suited the character of Zane and Ty very well.
The love-hate dynamics between Ty and Zane.
None comes to mind.
Any scene of them alone in the hotel.
I find Ty and Zane the most fascinating.
I didn't have a problem with Max Tatch as the narrator. I would take a break from the books of the authors though but would give them another chance.
I downloaded the first book by Madeleine Urban and Abigail Roux.
Max Tatch gave a satisfactory performance.
The lead character being so annoying. He's a worry wart Debbie downer all through the story that I actually hoped that his jock of a footballer boyfriend leave him.
The narrator sounded as bored as I am especially during the dragging segments.
The audio edition is better because of Charlie David's performance. His voice is a good fit with the characters and he's able to speak the different accents, from Jersey to Russian.
Although they're of different milieu, but as of quality, I would rank it among the top of my favorite books with "Something Like Summer" by Jay Bell.
Dante has this loud, and expressive character yet vulnerable. He's my favorite character as performed by Charlie David.
I love the giant redhead, Griff's quiet strength. And who would not be turned on by the description of his anatomy?
I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I wasn't expecting much because of the title "Hot Head". I found it tacky but after finishing the book, I see why it was named as such.
It's about the main characters in bed or in the showers half the time. Less sex and more story would have made this novel passable. Telling the POV's of both characters is not necessary and dragged the story.
No, I've read enough good novels not to base my opinion of this genre from this book.
When Jake was undercover and not returning Nate's call but it turned out to be a dud too.
I would have just told the story from Nate's point of view, leaving the viewer thinking and guessing about Jake's thoughts and intentions. Would he go back to women? Is he just playing Nate? Etc.
The book started with a blowjob. The quarry is caught. There's no more chase. Just boring repetitive sex followed.
Yes, although not as satisfying as "Promises", I still enjoyed it. Too much sex and less of the "chase" for my taste. And I can't fall in love with Angelo's character. I found him to be mean at times.
A little less sex and more romance would have made it more enjoyable. The fact that the main characters have already accepted their gay identities made the "chase" or "hunt" less challenging.
I like Mark L. Jones' performance in "Promises" and I like it in this audio book too. He has vulnerability in his voice. I enjoyed the story more because of his narration. He can improve on the delineation of the characters' voices. Sometimes it's hard to discern who's actually talking.
If it were made into a movie, it would be an x-rated with too many graphic sex scenes in it. I would definitely watch it though. I would think Colby Keller as Zach and any dark skinned gay porn star as Angelo would do.
I'm pleased to hear about Jared and Matt again from "Promises".
