    Danny Marshal has always lived his life out loud, but his androgynous appearance is only a small part of who he is. One night at a frat party, Danny meets Lance Lenard, football jock and apparent straight guy. Lance is shocked when he's immediately attracted to Danny's feminine side. Danny is happy to be the subject of Lance's first man-on-man experiment-until Lance begins to struggle with the fact that despite his appearance, Danny is indeed a man.

    Story
    Would you listen to Plan B again? Why?

    Yes, because the story was fun and the narrator did a wonderful job.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The fact that the story line, to me, was really believable. The charactors had me smiling the entire 8 hours and laughing out loud at some points.


    Have you listened to any of Andrew McFerrin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, this was my first time listening to him and I have to say he is now my favorite narrator. I will be looking at other books he has narrated. I think he could probably read the dictionary and make it fun to listen to for hours.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, without giving too much away it was towards the end of the story while they were in the hotel room.


    Any additional comments?

    To sum it up this book was very believable, funny, cute, heartwarming, and Andrew McFerrin's narration of it just brought it all to life in the most wonderful way. There wasn't anything in or about this book that I didn't enjoy. Or anything else I would have added to it/ wanted to see in it. I am glad the author shared these characters and their story.

    Brian is the alpha of the least impressive pack of wolves at the whole Moon Ceremony. When a human is discovered in their midst, he bonds with the man to save his life. Luke doesn't know about all this wolf stuff, but he's starting to develop feelings for the gentle man who rescued him. Both Brian and Luke expect to quietly dissolve the bond later. But feelings intervene, and some bonds are not so easy to cast aside. Building a life together as alphas will take love and hard work - especially when new wolves keep inviting themselves into their lives.

    I am very conflicted about this story. Overall it was a very cute and wonderful story and I was never bored. I adored all the characters. But at the same time, it felt like a lot of the time Luke was a woman and not a man. That the author wrote a story about a Brian and a woman, then at the last minute changed the name to Luke and changed she to he. Even Stone Canon, the narrator, made his voice more feminine a few times when Luke was speaking or thinking. At times it felt rushed and I believe some things should have been explained a little better specially some of the new pack members. Even with all that it was still a wonderful story, I loved that it wasn't so much about Brian and Luke, but about how they built a life, family, and pack together.

    Artist James Bryant has forearm crutches in every color from rainbow for fun to sleek black for business. He even has a pair with more paint splatters than metal. After his family's rejection and abuse from a man he thought loved him, James only just gets through the day by painting. He lives in constant fear that he's not worthy of anything, let alone love.

    I enjoyed listening to this story. Max Lehnen did a wonderful job narrating and bringing the characters and emotion to life. All the characters were believable and developed well. I do not like books where I can't relate/connect to at least one of the characters and in this one I can connect with both. More so with Seth, with how protective and supportive he is of James. I would have reacted the same way he did throughout the entire story. I just wanted to coddle James and do everything for him. Like Seth, not because James can't do things himself but because you just want to do it for him. I loved how James slowly grew throughout the story to see himself the way everyone sees him and what he deserves. I was a bit confused as to why the "bad guy" was who it was, seemed to come out of no where for me. But in the end it did wrap up the whole story nicely and gave the MCs what they needed to move on and truly be happy.
