    Spurned by his father and driven from his home, Stone Hillyard is struggling to find shelter in the Michigan winter when he lucks upon the horse farm run by Geoff Laughton and his partner Eli. They take him in, warm him up, and give him a job working with their No Boundaries therapy riding program. A drunk driver left Preston Harding unable to walk, and after months of hard work, his therapist recommends Geoff and Eli’s program. But Preston’s anger and arrogance nearly get him kicked out until Stone intercedes on his behalf.

    If you could sum up Love Means Freedom in three words, what would they be?

    happily ever after


    What did you like best about this story?

    Story is sweet with mild conflict and a happy ending. Perfect for when I need an uplifting, uncomplicated story.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    This is the part that follows the but... in my title. While many of his voices are OK, some are really off-putting. Most especially is Jeff's voice; Jeff is supposed to be a big, strong guy and narrator makes him sound like a silly twink. I really can't imagine Eli falling in love with this character image.


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

    A heartwarming love story


    Any additional comments?

    Same review holds true for other stories in this series using this narrator.

  • The Charlie Factor

    One, recovering from near deadly injuries; the other, unaware of what he's been missing in his life. What one man can do, may heal them both. Charlie Baker is recovering, slowly. Nearly dying tends to make a man reflect on each day. Take into account that his injuries were caused by a premeditated murder attempt, and he certainly isn't looking for a lover. He is barely welcoming to a friend unable to trust anyone, preferring to hide from the world hours and miles away from the memories.

    Would you try another book from Diana DeRicci and/or Lyn Madded?

    Would probably try another audiobook by this author, would be really disappointed if it had the same narrator. That would make me reconsider the purchase.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator made the characters sounded like whiny, pouty children and was occasionally so over the top, it was impossible for me to ever connect to the characters. The dialogue came off as utterly absurd, instead of potentially warm and fuzzy. I would have stopped listening very early on because of the narrator, but I wanted to try to give the actual book a chance. Just couldn't manage it since the story, for me, was so overshadowed by the unfortunate narration.

    Just out of the service, Dave Henderson is home and ready to enjoy the sexual freedom he didn’t have in the Marine Corps. When he meets Jack Stonner at a party thrown by a neighbor, Dave is immediately attracted to him and launches a seduction, one that starts with sex but soon grows into love.

    A. Mattison says: "horrible narrator"
    "Wow, shocking how really, really bad this is."
    Overall

    With all the great M/M books out there, I can't understand why someone bothered to record this excruciatingly bad book. As far as the reader, and yes, he's a reader (and a bad one at that) not a narrator, if I see he's reading a book, I won't buy it.

    Wanting to live freely as a human, half-incubus Tristan flees the Wardens. Broke and starving, he accepts Cory's offer of a paid photo shoot, never dreaming he'd find a man with whom he could be aroused and erotic in his own body without having to submit to his demonic half.

    Overall

    Unbelievably bad. I kept hoping for a redeeming factor; however, it never came. Though rating required I fill in a minimum of one star, I am more inclined to give it none.
