    "Narrator ruined a good story"
    If you could sum up Caught Running in three words, what would they be?

    Working a touchy Subject


    What did you like best about this story?

    I thought that the premise of the story was extremely good.


    What didn’t you like about Jeff Gelder’s performance?

    I thought that the narrator was extremely monotoned compared to other stories that I have listed to. Honestly, his reading ruined what could have been a great love story.


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

    Life after High School


    Any additional comments?

    I thought that the book took a sensitive subject and made it extremely acceptable. I just didn't care for the music and the the cheesy overtone that the narration took. I think that I would have enjoyed this story much more if I had read it instead of listening to it. I just didn't think that the narration did the story justice.

    What made the experience of listening to Caught Running the most enjoyable?

    Read the story and enjoyed it. Can't say much about the audio. Was hoping for a better interpretation.

    When Jake took a chance to find out if Branden was gay.


    What three words best describe Jeff Gelder’s voice?

    Boring, drone, monotone

    Branden, Jake sounds too grumpy for me.

    Story
    "A favorite"

    I've read this story on my kindle several times before listening to this audiobook and I've been in love with this story from the beginning. The main characters are very kind and loving, while having a sense of humor and playfulness. I liked the way that the narrator read the characters, and there were only one or two places where I thought I would have read the line differently if I were reading it. Usually I will have far more instances in which I think that I would have read a line differently when I listen to an audiobook. I would recommend this auidobook to anyone who wants to listen to a story about a sweet relationship between two loving, playful, men develop. I would not recommend this audiobook to someone who wants to be surprised by the plot of the book that they are reading.

    "Guilty Pleasure - Fun Story - NSFW ;)"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Caught Running to be better than the print version?

    Lot's of sex scenes. The story is cute. A little cliché, but hey, better than most gay fiction.

    Story
    "A GREAT love story. Well worth the time and money."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. It is simply a good story. Well written, with likable characters that have real world problems.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The almost "fish out of water" part about Brandon becoming a coach at the beginning of the book.


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

    Jeff is a great narrator. He brings an almost indescribable individuality to his characters. In my eyes the narration is more important than the story, and Jeff Gelder hits the nail on the head every time.


    If you could take any character from Caught Running out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Jake. He just seems like more "my type" than Brandon or any of the minor characters.


    Any additional comments?

    A+ narration of an A+ story.

    "A sweet, heart-warming story"
    What did you love best about Caught Running?

    The characters. AR and MU once again created characters that are easy to fall love. Brandon and Jake are just under Ty and Zane as my favorite AR/MU characters. Caught Running is just a sweet story about two guys who fall in love. No external conflicts, no internal conflicts either. It's a story about how they get together, fall in love and live in love.


    Any additional comments?

    I love this book. I first read it and then had to get the audiobook because I loved it so much. The negative reviews about the narrator gave me pause, but ultimately I was able to overlook his weird narration choices because of the story and characters.

    Story
    "The Best of the Best!"
    Any additional comments?

    Roux and Urban are two of the best authors of M/M romance today, (although I understand they're not collaborating anymore) and Caught Running is my favorite of their books. The inside information we have from the two guys, knowing that they are each hot for the other makes the tension just a little bit spicier. We're about half way through the story before they finally hook up, but its told so well that you don't realize how much suspense you are in.

    The only slight draw back is the narration. There are many mispronunciations and odd inflections but they're easy to get passed, except the word Mischievous,
    (Not mischeeveeus) its a pet peeve of mine and until I listened to the audio version I hadn't noticed how many times it is used in this book. That one thing aside, I highly recommend this book for a light bit listening enjoyment.

    Story
    "early work lacks later polish"

    Like many I fell in love with Urban and Roux thanks to the cut and run series. This work feels like a High School attempt at a novel. They use stereo types as the basis for their characters and as result they have no depth. Roux in particular has since developed a biting wit and sarcasm that makes me laugh out loud. This trait has become even more apparent in her solo work. Unfortunately this work shows none of that.
    The narration is like the rest of the work is completely forgettable.
    The book is ok just not memorable in any way and i will most likely forget I own it a year from now

    "This must be early work from Urban and Roux"

    I like the story... but I listen to this after the Cut and Run series and boy this just does not meet the same level of writing. This must be early work form Urban and Roux. I mean they have come a very long way if this came before Cut and Run, if not, then it had to be the narration.

    Narration was just not all that great. Just ok...

    "great listening!"

    the narrator did a great job on this one!
    It was really easy listening and he made the story come alive for me.
    The storyline was okay - enough tension in the first half a
    nd great sex in the second half.
    So enjoy!
