Publisher's Summary

State trooper Brandt's new assignment to infiltrate a sex-cam operation puts him in a very uncomfortable position, especially since he'll have to perform naked on camera for his audition. Fortunately his partner and best friend, Donnelly, has his back - whether that means helping Brandt shop gay boutiques for sexy underwear or offering Jager and encouragement while he researches porn.

Despite his mortification, Brandt gives the audition his best "shot" - and becomes an overnight sensation. But to meet the man behind the operation, he'll have to give a repeat performance, this time live on webcam opposite the highest bidder. Donnelly makes sure to win that auction for his partner's sake, but their plan has a flaw: faking it is not an option.

In the aftermath, Brandt is a humiliated mess trying desperately to come to terms with what he's had to do for the job and his own mixed feelings. But Donnelly has been on a journey of discovery of his own. Suddenly everything the two men thought they knew about themselves and each other gets turned inside out. Meanwhile, they still have a case to solve…but it may not be the case they thought it was.

    "Fun read"

    This is a fun read with a great narrator. The story is completely unbelievable and simple. Very predictable, but I still enjoyed the ride. The main theme seems to be can two declared (and they declare it over and over) straight cops suddenly have a relationship. What was somewhat annoying was the simplistic execution of this thesis. And the constant theme of "I'm straight" "I'm straight" "No really I'm straight". OK, we get it you were straight before you weren't. The only saving grace is the MC is very sweet and Bryce is a hoot. I don't think I would have like this book in print, but the narrator is fantastic at bringing the characters to life and parts are really funny. Probably worth a credit if you don't expect too much and just go along with the ride.

    "Love This Book!"
    Where does Frat House Troopers rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I've listened to many books and don't know if I can rank it, but I can give it an A for Amazing.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Even though he was in it for just a minute, I'd have to say it was Nestor. He was so funny and I loved the way he was voiced. Very campy and I could see him very clearly in my mind's eye.


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

    Bravo, Mr. Brooke. He has a talent for characterizations and accents. He gives very distinctive voices to each person and makes them very real.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I loved this book when I read it, but hearing it made me happy and sad. I laughed out loud while listening at work, and at some parts would have cried if I weren't afraid that my makeup would run or my co-workers would ask me a million questions as to why I was so upset.


    Any additional comments?

    I am so happy that such a great book and talented narrator were teamed up. That hasn't happened with many of the audiobooks I've listened to lately. I hope Dreamspinner has more work for Peter and that other books by Mr. Mayne are in audiobook format.

    Story
    "Double Gay For You"

    So... I thought I'd enjoy this more than I did.
    One of my pet peeves is purple prose. And this one was swimming in it. It started out so promising, too. Here we have two (manly) dudes, both straight. Both cops. Perfect ingredients for a double-gay-for-you with the added bonus of friends-to-lovers, right? Well, this kind of fell flat in the execution. See, Brandt and Donnelly don't really have much interaction despite being partners and apparently best friends before they realize they want each other. And after they realize they want each other, they become purple prose monsters.
    It didn't help that the narrator didn't give each guy a distinct voice. They were already so much alike, that making then sound alike as well made it really hard to distinguish between the two guys.
    There were some funny lines, but I just didn't enjoy this as much as I thought I would.

    "Good Story"

    This was a nice story of two straight cops going undercover on a gay porn site, the best part was the shopping in the gay clothing store and the gay guys was dressing him for the interview to get on the site it was totally funny.

    Story
    "A bit slow in the beginning..."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Frat House Troopers to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Frat House Troopers?

    When officer Brandt faced officer Donnelly in his apartment.


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

    The feelings.


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

    No. The beginning is a bit slow, which is understandable since the scenario has to be established. I got a bit bored though, right after the party at Donnelly's it gets interesting. There's basically no sex before that.


    Any additional comments?

    I was seriously considering returning the audiobook but then story had a plot twist and got me totally hooked.

    "BEWARE: SPOILERS LIVE HERE!"
    Any additional comments?

    If you hate spoilers, STOP READING NOW. Click away! Click away from this review!

    Allow me a moment to first say this before I begin my rant:

    Peter B. Brooke's narration was wonderful. He brought out the humor and passion in this. I really enjoyed his narration. 4 Stars for the narration.

    And now for my rant: This story makes absolutely no sense to me.

    The plot: State Trooper Ethan Brandt is tasked with going undercover in a sex-cam operation in order to shut them down on tax Revenue code 164.32 - not paying taxes on personal services rendered.

    Problem #1 Can someone explain to me how someone jerking off on camera is going to get a business's tax information?

    Why wouldn't you just fabricate some way to into the office to work? Or get your tech guys to send a virus and have your "undercover" guy show up to fix the computer and get your info that way? Also - there's no warrant involved so there's no coverage there, and the higher ups tell Brandt they'll make sure to get the video, if he has to do one, stopped. How? Once you do that and it's on the internet - it's out there. Finito. No going back.

    Problem #2 Every guy is STRAIGHT. Full on, don't even try to tell him differently, STRAIGHT. Even the ones with boyfriends.

    There are two sets of men in this story - the full on camp gay guys, like Bryce and Nestor (I love you Bryce!!) and the "I'm so straight a ruler is jealous" straight guys - even though they're attracted to, kiss, date, or sleep with other men. Apparently no one has ever heard of, or believes in, bisexuality.

    Problem #3 Brandt infiltrates the sex cam mansion and becomes very friendly with Nick, one of the guys who works there. I swear to God, I thought Nick was the love interest right up until - out of nowhere - Brandt's police partner, and best friend, Donnelly declares his feelings.

    Suddenly, within a weekend Brandt and Donnelly are 69ing each other, there's rimming, and they're declaring their love. This from two guys who, a WEEK prior, literally couldn't stand to look at a penis on a website.

    Then, with only one homphobic diner experience behind them they are accepted by one and all without a second's hesitation.

    Problem #4 Everything wraps up sooo conveniently, and it's all kittens and rainbows. Kittens and rainbows, people.

    Whatever.

    Yes, it has some heat (which was pretty awesome), and it's got humor (which was pretty darn funny), and it's got a nice HEA...but so many problems.

    On the plus side, I loved Bryce. For Bryce I'm giving an extra star.

    So, let's see...4 Stars for the narration, minus 3 stars for all my problems, plus one star for Bryce...

    2 Stars

    "This kinda sucked."
    Any additional comments?

    Audio edition, narrator Peter B. Brooke.

    Overall: 2
    Performance: 3
    Story: 2

    DNF at 61%.

    ----------------------------------
    "Is it straight to want to rip those shorts off of you? Yeah, I don't care. I've got to see that huge dick."
    ~Nick~ (who's not the love interest btw..)
    ----------------------------------

    Gawd, I can't take this anymore.

    The story is completely non plausible. I didn't feel the romance between Brandt and Connelly at all. There were more chemistry between Brandt and the secondary character, Nick.

    What annoyed me the most was the overwhelmingly need for every character to point out that they're SO straight.

    ------------------------------------
    "We're straight."
    "Oh, I'm sorry," tuttet Bryce.
    "Yeah, well, thanks." Donnelly drew a confused breath.
    (...)
    "Your straight friend is so hot."
    "We're both straight, remember?"
    (...)
    "You're going to have men falling at your feet, big boy--even the straight ones."
    (...)
    He handed Brandt a pair of jeans that looked, to his straight eyes, just exactly like the pair he was wearing.
    (...)
    "But what kind of straight guy does--that?" Donnelly pointed at the screen.
    (..)
    "Is it straight to want to rip those shorts off of you?"
    -------------------------------------

    You get the picture.

    The only gay gay characters were so stereotypical, it kinda turned my stomach after a while. Very flamboyant, effeminate and all talking with a lisp (in the narrator's voice). So story and character "development" plus "gay" narration made me start feeling offended over so shallow characterization of gays and straight people. It's like a bad joke gone bad. It's like the book tries to be funny, but fails horribly.

    So.
    Ugh.
    I cannot recommend this, even though there were some highlights and fun moments.

    Narration:
    Despite what I said above, the narrator did a decent job. He had different voices for all the characters and some were pretty good. And his tone of voice, young-ish and light, fitted the story.
    He did have a tendency to make nasal voices, though. And his voices for the gay gay characters were very stereotypical flamboyantly gay. With a lisp. Of course the bad character development isn't the narrators fault, since he only narrates the script aka the story. The combination, though, I did not like.

    "Check it out"

    This was the first gay erotica I have ever read; and it did not disappoint. I loved the story and the imagery. My favorite parts were when Ethan and Gabriel went shopping for Ethan's undercover attire. What I didn't like we're the stereotypical gay guys and the voices for some of the characters. But overall it was a fun story. Check it out.

    "Loved the book-the audio book was just as good!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I loved the book, and the narrator was really good!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Brandt...he just made me laugh!


    Which character – as performed by Peter Brooke – was your favorite?

    Brandt...he did it really well, I could just detect the accents


    If you could take any character from Frat House Troopers out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Wow, that's tough. I think Nick! He seemed like so much fun.


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator was really fantastic, great job!!!!
