    Zev Hassick is surprised and confused when he finds himself attracted to his best friend. His very human, very male best friend. Zev is the son of the pack Alpha, regarded as the strongest wolf in generations, born to lead. And everyone knows a male shifter has to mate with a female of his own kind to keep his humanity. So shifters can't be gay, right? Jonah Marvel wants a relationship with Zev, his best friend, the man he has loved since childhood. It wasn't easy to maintain that relationship over years spent living apart while Jonah studied to become a doctor.

    Story

    I wanted to like the book because of the premise of the story but this really turned me off. I thought both of the main characters are both alpha males yet they don't exude masculinity at all. Their conversations are like two teenage girls, in fact most of the characters in the story talk the same way. It was the usual fangirl story - the main characters are perfect, the sex overrated, the villain arch is just lousy and the dialogue is so monotonous. I like the narrator though, his voice is quite soothing.

    Brute leads a lonely life in a world where magic is commonplace. He is seven and a half feet of ugly, and of disreputable descent. No one, including Brute, expects him to be more than a laborer. But heroes come in all shapes and sizes, and when he is maimed while rescuing a prince, Brute's life changes abruptly. He is summoned to serve at the palace in Tellomer as a guard for a single prisoner. It sounds easy but turns out to be the challenge of his life.

    Story

    The book has a naivety feel about it. The story itself is quite simple, the characters are simple, there isn't much complexity in there. The actions and thinking of these characters are pretty much one dimensional so you know what you're going to get because they remain like that for the whole book.

    But what I did like about Brute is that even though everything is calculated and measured, you get to have moments that tugs on your heart strings. And that's impossible to ignore. The author knows how to pull it out in the right time but one can take self-flagellation only as much. But like I said, there are moments though that makes you smile and appreciate the main characters for who they are.

    Btw the narrator was excellent.

    It's moving day at Chez Holmes. Somehow, against Kit's better instincts, he and J.X. are setting up house together. But while J.X. is off at a writing conference, Kit unpacks a crate that should contain either old books or new china. It doesn't. Within the mounds of Styrofoam popcorn is a dead body. A very dead body. There goes the neighborhood.

    Story

    Kit is frustrating as hell. JX is charming and adorable as usual. The pair's chemistry seems to only work when there's a dead body involved. But in spite of everything, Josh pulled it again. It's funny and witty. There's an honesty about Josh's work on gay relationships that just pulls you right in, no matter how absurd. I just don't like Kit, he reminds me too much of myself.

    When homicide detective Dexter J. Daley’s testimony helps send his partner away for murder, the consequences - and the media frenzy - aren’t far behind. He soon finds himself sans boyfriend, sans friends, and, after an unpleasant encounter in a parking garage after the trial, he’s lucky he doesn’t find himself sans teeth. Dex fears he’ll get transferred from the Human Police Force’s Sixth Precinct, or worse, get dismissed.

    I love the world, the romance and the character personalities. One of the few m/m books that is definitely worth buying. I also like the diversity in Mark Westfield's voice characters. I'm officially a fan of this series.

    Wealthy playboy Brett Sheridan thinks he knows the score when he hires tough guy private eye Neil Patrick Rafferty to find a priceless stolen folio of Shakespeare's The Tempest. Brett's convinced his partner-in-crime sister is behind the theft - a theft that's liable to bring more scandal to their eccentric family, and cost Brett his marriage to society heiress Juliet Lennox. What Brett doesn't count on is the instant and powerful attraction that flares between him and Rafferty.

    I love everything about this but the end. For some reason, Josh Lanyon always cuts the story abruptly. I love his storytelling and will continue to support this guy cause he is just an amazing gay writer. But come on man, please make the ending last for at least a chapter or two.

    Sex. Logan Mitchell loves it, and ever since he realized his raw sexual appeal at a young age, he has had no problem using it to his advantage. Men and women alike fall into his bed - after all, Logan is not one to discriminate. He lives by one motto - if something interests you, why not just take a chance and try? And he wants to try Tate Morrison.

    Story

    It's basically all about sex puns (quite a few awful ones) and innuendos with hot and steamy gay sex scenes. It's a story that gets you off and plays with your fantasies which is great if you badly need one on a lonely Friday night. But if you're finding for something with more depth and background, better look elsewhere. For me, I find myself questioning the main characters' believability - not because of the idea of turning a straight man gay or bi. But because of the way they think, talk and act - it comes off as unnatural, manufactured and incredulous. I can't even make sense of the other people in this story. The entire thing seems to be stuck on the premise of 'getting the straight guy' and never really developing anything else beyond that.

    Rob Rosen has gathered the hottest stories of romance and sex between wealthy aristocrats and the hard-working estate staff, all with a pre-World War I backdrop, including the fashion and art and the latest inventions of the day. War is years way, the estates are huge and sprawling, the fashionably elite have too much time on their hands, while the toiling underclass are always on the lookout for a means to a brighter future - no matter whose bed they end up in.

    Story

    The problem with most gay erotica on Audible is that most plots are either boring, preachy or downright weird. This collection however is a cut above the rest. The stories are very interesting and extremely hot without going over the top. It also has light and funny moments which I appreciate. The narration is just perfect for this audio and I wish Mr. Frisk would record more hot audios in the future.

    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.

    This was one of the most erotic, enjoyable and painfully cute stories I have read/listened. There is such a raw authenticity to the plot that most of the gay stories out there can't grasp. Although I was miffed over a couple plot holes, you really can't deny the power of this sweet story.
