This book is not something I can recommend. It was tedious and did not get any better from the start. I only listened to the first few chapters and they were painful. It is a period piece which is part of what I found difficult to listen to.
Not the genre, but definitely the author.
The narrator was ok. If the story had been better I would have had no problem with the narration. The story is so bad it colors everything else.
The most memorable moment for me was when Rand hung up on Stefan so he wouldn"t hear him vomit.
Sean Crisden brings a whole dimension of personality to whatever books he reads. He is by far one of my favorite narrators. You can always tell when there is a shift between characters. His emotions play well when he is reading the dialog. If he is the narrator I will give a book a chance that I otherwise would not have listened to.
I generally listen to the audio books in bits and pieces unless I am quilting. The first time I listened to this book was in pieces. The second time was all in one spell while I quilted.
This book and the first in the series are a great listen. There are the requisite sex scenes which Ms Calmes is very good at writing, but it does feel like there is a playbook which she is writing from if you listen to many of her stories. I like this aspect more often than not, but be warned if you do not. I listen to A LOT of books so don't dismiss it over this aspect unless it really bothers you. I do love this book.
The fun descriptions of how J behaved and his personality. The way he and Liam interact and the protectiveness awakened in Liam are too fun.
The bashing of J and Liams' reaction were very touching. The you tube video bit caused tears in my eyes.
My favorite scene was when Liam comforted J in the kitchen after his grandma passed.
Jay himself was the most memorable character. He is a fun person who would be great to have around.
In the past I have returned a book read by this narrator. He was awful on that one. Here he is very good. If you too have heard his reading of Tigerland and been put off him, give this book a chance. Where that one had little differentiation between the different characters this one is easy to tell which character is talking.
great love story
the ring exchange at the end.
jake is my favorite, he is very harsh.
jonathan would be my favorite dinner partner. he is very sweet in the next book.
I have not read the print version.
I liked the character development and the flow of the story.
Sean Crisden is one of my favorite vocalists. His characters are easily discernable and his inflections are not too over the top.
I have already listened to this audiobook several times. It flows nicely and the continuity with the other Tate pack books makes it a nice follow through in the lives of these characters. I just listened to the entire series again over the past few days and truly enjoy the characters.
Character development and the flow of the story were my personal favorites. There are several very hot sex scenes, but after the first couple of listens I tend to fast forward over those.
Howl's grandmother was my favorite. The vivid description and then the peyote reference remind me of my own grandmother.
I always laugh and cry at emotional stories, it doesn't take much.
The flow of the story was great and the narration was very good.
I would compare this favorably with the twilight series. The story has that sort of star crossed lovers feel, it just moves along faster.
The characters were easily differentiated and her voice was pleasant to listen to.
The love story was very moving. The slow blooming of Patrick's inquisitive and wonderful nature coaxed by a nurturing, patient Whiskey was emotionally fullfilling.
I have already listened to it 3 times. It is a nice story that moves at a quick pace. Even though the subject matter is harsh the way the central character deals with his rape is refreshing. This is not a poor, pitiful me type of guy. There is no whining, but he is emotional. It is just a good emotional ride.
Colin is my favorite character. He is very realistic about life. Most people have a hard time accepting their reality and he does.
A better classification would have prevented me from buying this audiobook. It is not a gay romance. At least in the first hour (four chapters) there is no mention of anyone being gay. I can see the setup coming, but there are several stories going on here and the gay part is not central so far. This book is 8 and a half hours long, I gave it an hour and all I heard were back stories. It might be a good listen if you like very verbose story telling, but I found it tedious.
I am sure it is a good book for some, but I expected more of a gay theme from a book listed in the gay and lesbian section.
The great writing and wonderful narration.
The way the story left some tangents open so the author can give us more stories. I want to read about the brother and the best friend.
