Publisher's Summary

Blue: When my ex walks into the resort bar with his new husband on his arm, I want nothing more than to prove to him that I've moved on. Thankfully, the sexy stranger sitting next to me is more than willing to share a few kisses in the name of revenge. It gets even better when those scorching kisses turn into a night of fiery passion.

The only problem? Turns out the stranger's brother is marrying my sister later this week.

Tristan: I have one rule: no messing with the guests at my vineyard resort. Of course, the one exception I make turns out to be the brother of the woman my brother's about to marry. Now we're stuck together for a week of wedding activities, and there's no avoiding the heat burning between us.

So fine, we make a deal: one week. One week to enjoy each other's bodies and get it out of our system. Once the bride and groom say I do and we become family, it'll all be over between us. Right?

Fair warning: Blue and Tristan's story contains smoking hot scenes of man parts touching, pee-in-pants descriptions of grannies cursing, and the sweet improbability of two strangers finding their happily ever after when they least expect it.

Borrowing Blue is the first in the new Made Marian series. Each book tells the story of one of the Marian brothers' search for true love and can be listened to as standalone or as part of the series.

    Story
    "Good story but....."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, the story is well written, fun, and the narration by Michael Pauly is top notch.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Borrowing Blue?

    The bar scene when the two main characters meet for the first time. This scene sets the pace for the rest of the book.


    Which character – as performed by Michael Pauley – was your favorite?

    Tristan, he was the most complex of the bunch and that's saying a lot.


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

    Another gay movie with good looking white privileged men that have no real problems.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked the story, it was fun and the narration took it to another level. The problem I have is the main characters; while likable it's the same old tired formula: two successful and incredibly good looking white guys, with amazing bodies, great personalities find each other and make a connection in their perfect privileged worlds. Throw in some trivial self-worth obstacles to make them seem like their three-dimensional and you've got another white-washed story about gay true love. Way to mix it up folks.

    Story
    "Hot, sexy voice!"

    Michael Pauley has the sexiest narrating voice ever!

    This isn't a big, conflict ridden novel. It sweet, funny and hot as hell. Get this audio version-you won't be disappointed. Pauley does the MCs and their romance pure justice.

    Story
    "Utterly charming!"
    Any additional comments?

    I was utterly charmed by both the story and the narration. I liked both Blue and Tristan very much. I loved that even though this is a super fast insta-love sort of story, I totally bought into it.

    But, most of all, I absolutely adored Michael Pauley’s narration. Terrific character voices, good pacing, and he’s brilliant at conveying the emotional moments. I just loved the narration!

    If you like Alexa Land and/or like stories with big families, zany older folks (behaving sometimes completely inappropriately), humor, lots of hot sex, low angst, and oodles of romance…then you need to check this out.

    As for me, I’m definitely going to pick up the second in the series and whispersync the deal to get Michael Pauley’s audio performance as well.

    "I absolutely loved this book!"

    This book was awesome!!!'It was romantic and funny!!! The narrator was literally the best I've heard since I've started reading audio books! His transitions from one character to the next was next to flawless...and the differences in most of the voices...the characters was so good, that in the beginning, I wondered if there were two people narrating (I hadn't paid attention to the name of the narrator in the beginning), but once I checked, I realized that there was just one. Check it out! I will be looking for this author and narrator for more great stories!

    Story
    "Introducing...The Marian Clan"
    Would you listen to Borrowing Blue again? Why?

    Yes, I would listen to Borrowing Blue again. It was a fantastic story and beginning to a franchise. This review comes after listening to the first 3 books in this franchise. The outcome of this book is pretty predictable, but it's really good getting there.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Blue is my favorite character in this book. I connected with him and his reactions to everything happening in his life. I really like how Blue is pretty much the central character of the family.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked when Blue finally finds out Tristan's connection to Simone and the wedding.


    If you could rename Borrowing Blue, what would you call it?

    I wouldn't change the name of the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I think that this story is a great listen. It's an easy listen with a happy ending. It's a great introduction to a large family, all with a story to tell.

    Story
    "Too much sex, not enough plausible story."

    I know this is a MSM novel but I found the story a little too contrived, implausible, and more of an excuse to string together a bunch of sex scenes than something I could become invested in as believable and desirable to listen to.
