"Coming home from work to find my boyfriend banging our hairy, married landlord - in our bed - was bad enough. Discovering Jamie had also cleaned out my bank accounts made it officially the worst day of my life. I think I can be forgiven for wanting revenge, even if a few little laws (and possibly Jamie's nose) got bent in the process.
"Fortunately, the law is on my side in the form of my oldest friend, Tony Gervase. I've tried to deny my attraction to the sexy trooper for years. After all, he made it clear long ago that he wasn't interested in me that way. But if the hot encounter in his kitchen is any indication, he is now. At least the day is ending a whole lot better than it began....
"But the morning after, the Jamie situation goes from bad to seriously messed up. The jerk's in more trouble than I could have imagined. And as it turns out, I don't know Tony as well as I thought I did, either."

Yes. I read this story a couple of years ago when it was entitled "Gobsmacked". It was the first story I read by Mrs. Gregg and I enjoyed it so much, I purchased others. I never could have imagined the characterizations in my head as interpreted by the narrator.
It was hilarious and I could see myself reacting in many of the same ways as Mark. The bible incident at the church had me guffawing out loud. Good thing I was at home alone and not at work while listening.
This was the first book that I actually listened to that Mr. Gunn narrated, but not the first one I purchased. I love his narrative skills. He has a way with accents and he emotes very well. I hope to hear a lot more from him.
Completely Gobsmacked would do it justice. It describes perfectly the emotions Mark felt during the horrific chain of events before his HEA.
Hurry and release the rest of the series!
This was a new to me author, so I had low to no expectations going into this, since it was such a bargain! This book made me a fan. It's short and fun. I thought the narrator was great. I loved his Italian cop, Tony, and he perfectly captured the loveble but maddening nature of Mark. I definitely recommend it if you're looking for a good m/m romance.
I would say that yes, the majority of the time I spent listening to this book was worth it. Why? Because it had a good blend of a strong male who wasn't DOMineering.
That Mark saved his sorry ex. The least interesting were some of the accents.
I enjoy accents, just not this one...it was like I enjoyed some of the accent but then there were times when I was just like 'uh no'.
Reminded me that I need to make sure I KNOW who I am dealing with.
Avid audible listener!
It's in my M/M romances to be listened to again category.
I really like Mark. He gets mad, does without thinking, and then figures out how to fix his mistakes, without wallowing in too much self-recrimination. I enjoyed his sense of justice which in real life most of us would only fantasize. I know I've had relationships end where I would have loved to hurt them as much as I was.
It's a toss up between the church scene and Mark trying to be quiet after crawling into Tony's pantry.
Mark - for the reason mentioned above.
I chose this book because of a recommendation to try Shannon Gunn reading L.B. Gregg. I am glad I did.
I consider it a repeat. One I can listen to over and over.
The church scene for one, but also towards the end when Mark was following his ex.
Love narrators that can bring the characters to life. Very well done, Mr. Gunn
Since I listen to audio while commuting, no. This one took a couple of days.
This one is my favorite of the series. Had some serious LOL moments.
I loved the sarcastic humor of the story. The MCs are very endearing. The narrator was really great as Mark, not as great as Tony, but still good. The story was OK, about average as a predicable romance, could have been better.
Mark, easily Mark. He made me laugh out loud.
Yes I did
I really enjoyed this book in the audio format. Strangely this is one of those rare occasions where I don't think I would have liked the printed version better. The narrator was funny as hell and I found myself laughing out loud. So fair warning if you listen to it in public.
