    There are two sides to every story. When you're Tim Wyman, sometimes there are three. Tim hoped moving to Texas would mean a new beginning, but he soon finds himself falling into the same tired patterns. Until he meets recklessly brave Benjamin Bentley, who introduces Tim to a world of love, sex, and warmth. Certain that society won't understand what he and Ben have together, Tim struggles to protect their relationship, even if it means twisting the truth. Buried beneath his own deceptions, Tim must claw his way to the surface in the hopes of learning to fly.

    What did you love best about Something Like Winter?

    Have you ever wanted to see what it was like to walk in someone elses shoes or be a fly on the wall watching two people meet and fall in love. Something Like Winter gives you the opportunity to do just that . Jay Bell was so right on in staying with Tim's point of view kept the story real for me.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ben! If you listened to Something Like Summer you know that Ben isn't as cool and collected as Tim portrays him in Something Like Winter. To hear Tim talk about Ben you just have to fall in love with him all over again.


    Which character – as performed by Kevin R. Free – was your favorite?

    Allison Cross- Kevin portrayed her as a strong women giving her a voice of strength and possessiveness for Ben.


    Who was the most memorable character of Something Like Winter and why?

    The most memorable character would have to be the supporting characters of Tim and Ben. Eric Conroy was patient and non-judgmental with Tim and that is very hard to do when you love someone. Jace for trusting and supporting, Ben he was such a good big part of the story. Marcello, what a character he would slide in right at the last second to do what was right. He proves that no character is black and white. Grays are so much more interesting to read about.


    Any additional comments?

    I am really hoping the author Jay Bell records the rest of the series with the same narrator. He did a fantastic job with the characters giving each one a personality and a unique voice.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Ethan, Who Loved Carter the most enjoyable?

    I read this e-book many months ago and really enjoyed it. I was so excited when I learned the audio version was coming and downloaded it the first day it was available. I took a chance that the narrator would honor Ethan and Carter with voices that they both deserved. I was so happy that he did just that. Both characters came to life under the narration of
    K. C. Kelly. As a reader you learn that Carter has Tourette's and Ethan has a traumatic brain injury, I can imagine what they would sound like by reading the amazing Ryan Loveless's words. But K.C. Kelly brings them life. You cheer for their victories and want to shield them both from the brutality that others throw at them. And above all you want to be their champions.


    What other book might you compare Ethan, Who Loved Carter to and why?

    Over coming obstacles and finding someone to love and accept you is pretty much the story line I love. Aaron by J.P. Barnaby is another excellent example of overcoming tragedies in life and the writing style is very similar in that they are both gifted in telling stories.


    Have you listened to any of K. C. Kelly’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have a very large library of m/m audio books that I have listened to but surprisingly this is the only one I have by this narrator. I hope he records many more and I will look for his name when I am making decisions on what to purchase next.


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

    No I like to savor my books. Listen and then think about the characters. the story builds through the narrator and I like to build with them slowly.


    Any additional comments?

    Just listen to the Audio Book of; Ethan, who loved Carter. You will not regret a moment of your time and you will be touched by the story.
