Publisher's Summary

When physics grad student Fielding Monroe and skirt-chaser and football player Mick Colman become college housemates, they're both in for a whole new education. Mick looks out for the absent-minded genius, and he helps Fielding clean up his appearance and discover all the silly pleasures his strict upbringing as a child prodigy denied him. They become best friends.

It's all well and good until they run into a cheerleader who calls Mick the "best kisser on campus". Fielding has never been kissed, and he decides Mick and only Mick can teach him how it's done. After all, the physics department's Christmas party is coming up with its dreaded mistletoe. Fielding wants to impress his peers and look cool for once in his life. The thing about Fielding is, once he locks onto an idea, it's almost impossible to get him to change his mind. And he just doesn't understand why his straight best friend would have a problem providing a little demonstration.

Mick knows kissing is a dangerous game. If he gives in, it would take a miracle for the thing not to turn into a disaster. Then again, if the kissing lessons get out of hand, they can always blame it on the mistletoe.

    Story
    "If Jason read school textbooks,grades would go up!"
    Would you listen to Blame It on the Mistletoe again? Why?

    The story was cute and sweet. Although the storyline was good, words alone could not create such an emotional reaction in me. Jason took this book from a single sense experience (hearing) and turned it into a multiple FIVE sense experience (Sight, hearing, taste, smell, and touch). Who would not want to experience that multiple times?? So YES I have already listened to this again and will listen to it again and again and again!!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Blame It on the Mistletoe?

    Any time Jason (I mean Mick) *sighed*. Also anytime Mick thought of Fielding because Jason did this thing with his voice that could melt icebergs....no melt glaciers. Several times I found myself turning up the air conditioning in my car!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Definitely the First Kiss. The way Jason turned words on paper into actual butterflies in my stomach was mind blowing!


    If you could rename Blame It on the Mistletoe, what would you call it?

    Kiss Me, Just Once....Twice....


    Any additional comments?

    Anyone can read a book out loud but it takes real talent to make a person actually "feel" what the characters are doing/feeling. Jason did this constantly throughout the book and it made listening to the book a "whole body experience". I have listened to many audiobooks and Jason's talent for voicing multiple characters especially of different ages and genders was AMAZING!! It sounded like multiple people were used to narrate this book. Each voice was unique to their character and it did NOT sound like one person trying to do many voices (unfortunately many audiobooks sound like that). This book was such a pleasure to hear that I will buy anything Jason narrates even if it is a math text book!

    Story
    "Best Narration MM Book Ever"
    Where does Blame It on the Mistletoe rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Based on sheer passionate narration #1


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Fielding in terms of his character, MIck in terms of his passion.


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

    Sweet Lord! The man's voice turned me into pudding! Trust me you want some alone time when you listen to the kiss scenes... wow!


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

    Uh yeah. See above... kissing scenes were out of this world.


    Any additional comments?

    Jason Frazier just hit this out of the ballpark. He was invested, he got it, he added charm and passion to the story and just made it so REAL. Awesome.

    "You will listen to this MANY times!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes! It is sweet and sexy! And has many touching moments!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Blame It on the Mistletoe?

    Definitely the first kiss...sigh...


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

    Jason Frazier brings the main characters to life! He makes you feel like you know Fielding Monroe and Mick Colman. His voice inflection lets you know exactly how Mick and Fielding are feeling about each other!


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

    Oh Ioved every moment in this book, but when Mick came after Fielding at his Christmas party, that pretty much did it for me!


    Any additional comments?

    Since listening to this book, I have purchased every narration Jason Frazier has done for Audible...he is undoubtedly the most talented narrator I've ever listened to!

    "Sweet, Sweet Book!"
    Would you listen to Blame It on the Mistletoe again? Why?

    yes, total "feel good" book. Nerdy boy gets beautiful jock boyfriend, but with substance.


    What other book might you compare Blame It on the Mistletoe to and why?

    Any Eli Easton book, Superhero.


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

    No, great voices, great entertainment! More like Tristan James or Finn Sterling.


    If you could rename Blame It on the Mistletoe, what would you call it?

    I would not rename it, perfect name

    Story
    "Dear Dreamspinner, Please use Jason Frazier more"
    Would you listen to Blame It on the Mistletoe again? Why?

    Yes. It was such a short, sweet, feel good read with excellent narration. Definitely going to listen to this again.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the characters. Even the side characters were likable.


    Which character – as performed by Jason Frazier – was your favorite?

    Mick. The story is told from his POVS and Jason Frazier gave him this really pleasant, sultry voice. It sounded really appropriate for a twenty-two year old guy and everything he was feeling was conveyed by the narrator in such a way that it really felt like the character was telling his story instead of just a narrator reading words on a page.


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

    When Mick realized he was in love for the first time. And with hist best friend.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish this was longer. And, Jason Frazier should narrate more books. I'm kind of disappointed he's only done a handful of them. He's definitely got the knack for it. If I could, I'd pay him to re-do all the audiobooks that were butchered by Jeff Gelder and Andrew Schwartz and then pay him some more to narrate other books that don't have audio versions available. So... Dreamspinner Press, if anyone actually keeps track of these reviews, there you go.

    "Great story, performed wonderfully."

    It’s amazing how much I used to struggle with trying to love Christmas. Then again, if you’ve ever worked retail, you probably get it. So it’s nice to return to Christmas and find it actually enjoyable.

    Also – Christmas stories.

    That said, this isn’t one. Or rather, there’s a very tenuous Christmas component to it, but it’s not a story that really has Christmas centre-stage. And even post-retail me is okay with that.

    Eli Easton‘s Blame it on the Mistletoe is a fun novella-length audiobook that I listened to in a single afternoon worth of household chores, and it was a lovely way to pass the time. The narrative set-up is pretty simple: a jock has a roommate who’s a super-smart (and rather cute) nerdy type. They’re very close, and when the nerd learns that jock has the reputation of being the best kisser on campus, he asks for lessons.

    Yup. That’s right. Lessons.

    The reason why, and how the two end up together (there’s no spoiler there, as anyone who’s ever read any gay romance will know they’re on a collision course), is actually quite adorable. Even better, the (as-yet) straight jock character doesn’t come across as a gay-for-you character at all (a trope I have little patience for), but rather a character who has successfully managed to not-think-about-it for a very long time – until his roommate’s request makes him realize what’s going on.

    It’s sweet. It’s fun. And it’s performed wonderfully by Jason Frazier, who I honestly think is one of the best audiobook performers out there. Seriously – everything I’ve heard him perform is elevated by his skill as a narrator. If you’re at all an audiobook enthusiast, check him out.

    "Sweet - Hot - Amazing"
    Would you listen to Blame It on the Mistletoe again? Why?

    Absolutely - while in a hot bath, drinking wine and enjoying the bubbles.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    all of them


    Which character – as performed by Jason Frazier – was your favorite?

    ALL OF THEM - amazing amazing performance. The men sounded like men - the women sounded like women. Amazing.


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

    Sweet and Hot Love for Christmas

    "Jason needs to read every book ever."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Blame It on the Mistletoe to be better than the print version?

    I only listened to this book and hadn't read it before but I feel like the narration really made this book something special. It was a sweet story that I would have really enjoyed reading but the narration was so good that it really made the book even better!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Blame It on the Mistletoe?

    The best parts of this book were any of the sexy parts. Jason's breathy voice was so amazing! I was fanning myself frequently.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I love the first kiss scene. It was so amazing. So incredibly sweet but sexy at the same time


    If you could rename Blame It on the Mistletoe, what would you call it?

    Jason Has a Hot, Sexy Voice. Just kidding...but not really kidding. LOL

    "narration was fabulous"
    What did you love best about Blame It on the Mistletoe?

    I haven't listened to any other audio books by this narrator, but he was perfect for this one. I loved this book when I read it but enjoyed it much more in audio. The first scene where Mick and Fielding got hot and heavy was, wow, turn on the AC because I'm going up in flames.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Blame It on the Mistletoe?

    Definitely the first time they get together.


    Which character – as performed by Jason Frazier – was your favorite?

    Mick. I didn't feel like this was a narrator reading, but more that I was really listening to Mick's inner dialogue.


    If you could take any character from Blame It on the Mistletoe out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Fielding, because he looks at everything from a different perspective than most people.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommend in audio.

    I loved this book. It was so good, Jason Frazier was delightful to listen to. I haven't read or listened to Eli Easton but I'm definitely going to now. Sometimes it's nice to listen to a book without tons of drama.

    "My Aural Fixation"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Blame It on the Mistletoe to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version, but having listened to the audio version about a bajillion times I'd say that the narration lifts a sweet, well written story to the level of perfection.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love them both! Fielding's a fiesty geek and Mick's a sweethearted jock, they're both interesting, rounded characters that I'd be happy to know. Okay, if I had to pick one to go out with - if I was the other one, because I couldn't possibly tear them away from each other - it would be Mick. I love how much he cares for Fielding even when he can't quite bring himself to admit that he's head-over-heels, bonkers in love. And he makes up for his mistakes admirably.


    Have you listened to any of Jason Frazier’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I haven't listened to any others yet. With this quality of narration I want the story to measure up. I can't wait to hear more from Jason Frazier, as he's an incredibly talented narrator. He has an endless range of voices and the sexy bits are off the scale on the hot-o-meter. I am waiting for Unwrapping Hank with hitched breath.


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

    I loved it from start to finish, but I particularly enjoyed the moment that Mick finally gave in and kissed Fielding and then later on when they "don't stop". Guh. The earth moved, never mind me.


    Any additional comments?

    Anyone dithering over whether to buy the ebook or audiobook should absolutely buy the audiobook. I also recommend lying in a darkened room for the duration. It is not advisable to drive or operate heavy machinery whilst listening to this audiobook. Mick's hot chocolate is lush, I cannot comment on Santa's Death by Peppermint as they don't seem to know what it is in my local cafe :(

    "All round a good buy. Fun,sweet and alluring"
    Where does Blame It on the Mistletoe rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would put Blame It on the mistletoe at the top of my audio books.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favourite is Mick because the story was told through him. The way that Mick slowly bit by bit understood that he had fallen in love with fielding.


    What about Jason Frazier’s performance did you like?

    Jason Frazier I would say is a man of many voices and would like to hear him lots more. In fact I looked for more stories with him in just because I enjoyed listening to him.


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

    once I started to listening to this book I was unable to stop till I reached the end and then I was sad it was finished.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this book to any one that loves a good fun romance.

    "Fielding, you're a star!!"
    What did you like most about Blame It on the Mistletoe?

    Fielding, I felt for him. His cold hearted mother and absent father, the fact that he'd gotten to his age and never even been kissed.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    As above.


    What does Jason Frazier bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    He brought the characters of Fielding and Mick to life as all good narrators should. He made Mick, the straight more experienced one, sound hot and confident, and Fielding was quite dorky until surprisingly HE was more adult than Mick and quite open about his feelings. Mick deserved a few good slaps upside the head. The 'kissing' experimentation in particular was hot as all get out, and you would have thought that Jason was participating himself!! ;)


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

    Yes, it's only an Xmas novella so entirely possible to read in one sitting.
