    Meet Patrick Cleary: party boy, loser, and spaz. Patrick’s been trying desperately to transform himself, and the results have been so spectacular, they’ve almost killed him. Meet Wes “Whiskey” Keenan: he’s a field biologist wondering if it’s time to settle down. When the worst day of Patrick’s life ends with Whiskey saving it, Patrick and Whiskey find themselves sharing company and an impossibly small berth on the world’s tackiest houseboat. Patrick needs to get his life together and Whiskey wants to help.

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

    No. Giving up before half way. Love Amy Lane but this narrator is making my brain hurt.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Not sure yet. Going to buy ePub to finish it.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Some emotion would be nice. Everyone had the same "voice" with not a trace of inflection or emotion. I couldn't tell when characters changed.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    A good narrator


    Any additional comments?

    I think I said it all.

    Easton Crawford put his modeling career and good looks before his marriage until it was over. Years later, he is finally learning how to be the father his daughter needed him to be. He's not looking for a new mom for his daughter-just nightly casual hook-ups. When his best friend, Avery, convinces him that a good way to meet a lot of single women is to go on a single's cruise, Easton finds more than just a hook-up when he meets a fellow cruiser, Brooke.

    What did you like best about Tattooed Dots? What did you like least?

    I will read the ebook instead.

    After turning his back on the throne for centuries, Wrath, son of Wrath, finally assumed his father's mantle - with the help of his beloved mate. But the crown sets heavily on his head. As the war with the Lessening Society rages on, and the threat from the Band of Bastards truly hits home, he is forced to make choices that put everything - and everyone - at risk. Beth Randall thought she knew what she was getting into when she mated the last pure blooded vampire on the planet: An easy ride was not it.

    What did you love best about The King?

    LW. And Assail and Sola. Looking forward to their story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Impossible to say. I devoured it as fast as I could so I'm sure I missed vital details. Will listen again soon.


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

    It took me awhile to get used to Jim Frangiones voice as the BDB narrator. Now I wouldn't want anyone else. I do wish the female voices were different but still wouldn't ask for another narrator.


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

    WTF?!


    Any additional comments?

    Well worth the credit as usual. Thanks Warden!

    Gwendolyn Kidd has met the man of her dreams. He's hot, he's sexy, and what started as a no-names-exchanged night of passion has blossomed into a year and a half-long pleasure fest. Sure, it's a little strange that he only appears in her bed at night, but Gwen is so sure he's the one, she just can't turn him away…. Hawk Delgado knows more about Gwen than she could ever imagine. She's gorgeous, headstrong, and skittish about relationships. But Hawk is facing his own demons, demons that keep him from connecting with anyone.

    Where does Mystery Man rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is good. Four out of five stars.


    What about Kate Russell’s performance did you like?

    I felt like she got the emotions right. So many narrators just read instead of act. All the "oh boys" could have been annoying but they were cute instead.


    Any additional comments?

    As far as alpha male books go KA writes a good one. I could never deal with an alpha IRL but in fiction I eat it up!

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I couldn't enjoy the story because of the rediciulous voices.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Gail McHugh again?

    I'm not sure.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The voices reminded me of cartoons. Flinstones came to mind.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Collide?

    None


    Any additional comments?

    I got half way through the story but had to stop. I will get the ebook instead. I think it has promise but I was too distracted by the narrator.

Disavowed from his bloodline, shunned by the aristocracy, he has finally found an identity as one of the most brutal fighters in the war against the Lessening Society. But his life is not complete. Even as the prospect of having a family of his own seems to be within reach, he is empty on the inside, his heart given to another....

    What did you love best about Lover at Last?

    Is this a trick question?


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Lover at Last?

    The end of the epilogue. I won't type it out since it is a spoiler even though you know it's coming. I'm sitting here with tears in my eyes! Second fave is Blay talking to him mom on the phone... I was so worried for him! ;)


    Which character – as performed by Jim Frangione – was your favorite?

    Again, trick question? The only characters I don't like are the lessees. Even the BOBs grew on me.


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

    Yes! But it's just too long. It did only take three nights and a bit of missed sleep though.


    Any additional comments?

    The only thing that bugged me was the lack of "luhbe"! Ouch! A little prep goes a long way...
    Thanks for another great one Warden!

    The most important things in Simon Murray’s life are football, friends, and film - in that order. His friends despair of him ever meeting someone, but despite his loneliness, Simon is cautious about looking for more. Then his best friends drag him to a party, where he barges into a football conversation and ends up defending the honour of star forward Declan Tyler - unaware that the athlete is present. In that first awkward meeting, neither man has any idea they will change each other's lives forever.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A decent narration editor


    Would you ever listen to anything by Sean Kennedy again?

    It wasn't the authors fault this was terrible.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Paul Morey’s performances?

    It isn't the narrators fault either.


    Any additional comments?

    The narration need serious editing. Every DreAmspinner Press book I have listened to in the last few months have been terrible. Clearing throats, repeating lines, drinking water. Why isn't this caught before going out? It had been in EVERY DSP book lately!
    I won't buy anymore until I hear they are getting edited.
    This is a shame because I hear good things about the authors.

    Jory Harcourt doesn't have to go looking for trouble. Wherever he goes, it seems to find him - particularly when his partner, Sam Kage, is working undercover on a federal task force. After the recession forces him to close his business, Jory goes to work as a matchmaker and event planner. From there, it's only a matter of time before his big mouth and up-front attitude make him the rope in a tug-of-war between a trust-fund baby and a drug-smuggling criminal.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Bulletproof to be better than the print version?

    No. I read the series as they came out.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bulletproof?

    I really enjoyed the entire book but Jory& Sam together is always great.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Narration. I had a hard time figuring out who was speaking. There is no deviation in tone between characters. The only other complaint I have is the awful music played in between chapters. Forget trying to relax and read this.. The music makes it impossible.


    If you could take any character from Bulletproof out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Sam. I can't say why! ;)

    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 love best about Hot Head?

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hot Head?

    The extras scene in hothead.. Whoa.. That was hott! The morning after in bed was a touching scene too.


    Which character – as performed by Charlie David – was your favorite?

    Since I read it before I had my own "voices" so was a bit afraid to listen. Charlie David did a great job. Not exactly what I had in mind but it became Dante and Griffin as the story began.


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

    Yes but alas, life gets in the way

    Gary Keller is enjoying a cruise with new friends when he meets Scott Haworth, and unexpected attraction flares between them. But Scott has a past he's trying to leave behind; nine months earlier he was released from prison after almost a decade. The Innocence Project and DNA evidence exonerated him of the crime, but the victim’s brother still holds him responsible.

    I really enjoy Andrew Grey and was looking forward to this. It was okay until chapter 3. The narrator coughs, burps and worse, snorts phlem through the entire chapter. I didn't get any further. I notified Audible so hopefully the audio will be re-edited (or in this case edited for the first time. That being said Andrew Grey is a good author and Dreamspinner Press (where you can get the ebook) rocks. go there to buy the audio books!
    Looking forward to this being fixed!
