Two of London's most notorious rakehells, Linus Radcliffe and Robert Anderson, are the best of friends. They share almost everything - clothes, servants, their homes, and even each other's bed on occasion. The one thing they don't share: lovers. For while Linus prefers men, Robert prefers women... except when it comes to Linus.
As another Season nears its end, Robert can't ignore his growing jealousy. He hates watching Linus disappear from balls to dally with other men. Women are lovely, but Linus rouses feelings he's never felt with another. Unwilling to share his gorgeous friend another night, Robert has a proposition for Linus. It's a proposition Linus flatly refuses - but not for the reasons Robert thinks. Still, Robert won't take no for an answer. He sets out to prove a thing or two to his best friend - yet will learn something about the heart himself.

I would most defenitly purchase another book by Ava March. This series is one of my favorites that I have listened to in a while. I will only purchase to book however if it is NOT read by B. Townsend. The inflection in his voice is all wrong for this book. You can hear so much of his breathing while telling the story and it so distracting. Belmont that read the first two books in this series is probably my favorite reader that I have found on Audible and adds so much to the stories that he is telling.
I liked the story a lot, as I always do with an Ava March story.
This narrator though I had a hard time enjoying his performance. Pauses at rather awkward times in a sentence. Too many audible breaths. I just wasn't a fan. No mispronounced words. But the awkward pauses were frustrating to listen to.
No! The narrator killed this entire story for me. I only got through it the first time because of it being the third part of a trilogy.
He makes the characters sound like they are in their 60's and not their 20's. He also makes it very difficult to tell who is speaking and really just put me to sleep.
I will never buy a book, no matter the author, narrated by B. Townsend again. Lesson learned.
Maybe the book itself was worth an additional star, but the narrator killed it for me. The fluctuations were there, but the different voices were not. The narrator for the first two books was superb. I listened to to all three books back to back. The change was just not a positive one for me.
