Publisher's Summary

Oliver "Ollie" Petroskovic's life as an international supermodel was heading in the right direction. He worked part-time for his brother at his detective agency - Petroskovic Haven Investigations - and had just bought his dream house. But all that changed when he found his brother dead, a victim of PTSD-induced suicide.

Almost a year later, Ollie is trying to keep his brother's business afloat, but can't get his PI license. Then his brother's best friend, Kade Alme, shows up, fresh from the battlefield after a close brush with death. Kade is looking for a new life, in more ways than one, and with PI license in hand, he's exactly what Ollie needs to keep PHI running.

When one of Ollie's childhood friends gets in trouble, Ollie feels he has to help. Kade insists on investigating, if only to keep Ollie safe. Neither realizes the danger they're in as someone tries to tear them apart before they can find solid ground together.

    Any additional comments?

    I loved Ollie, the gender fluid model with spectacular fashion sense and a penchant for trouble. I totally understood his reticence to allow anyone else in and to get close to him. But even my love for Ollie is eclipsed by my passion for Kade. His stalwart dedication and devotion to Ollie even after Ollie is such a prick time and time again to him...*sighs*

    Overall Mike Pohlable's narration was okay. I mostly enjoyed his character voice for non-conforming gender fluid Ollie, who is the main POV for the story. Though I did have an issue with Pohlable's style of enunciation at times, I thought the emotion Pohlable displayed was really good. I really enjoyed the infusion of sentiment Pohlable brought to the audio.

    But that ending? Yes, it's kind of a cliffhanger, but, number one, I was totally prepared for it and two...Ha! I can honestly say I am so happy I was right all along.

    Overall the story was quite enjoyable and I'll definitely check out the next installment in the series.

    "Touches all emotions. "

    The narrator does a fantastic job pulling the listener into the story through voice inflection and creating different voices for each character.

    "Pretty good audio"
    Would you listen to Model Citizen again? Why?

    Yes. This book has a lot of emotion, some light hearted humor and sweet romance. The narrator portrays the characters and emotions well enough to make it memorable and enjoyable over and over again.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Model Citizen?

    The beginning when Ollie found out Nathan was dead.


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

    Yes, but I had to work of course.

    The Story
    On the day that International model, Oliver “Ollie” Petroskovic ends up buying a fixer upper of a house for him and his brother Nathan, is the same day that his brother takes his life. This leaves Ollie with a house in need of repairs and Petroskovic Haven Investigations; Nathan’s PI business. Fast forward eight months after his brothers’ PTSD-induced suicide, Ollie is struggling to keep things afloat. He is carrying on in his brother’s place at PHI, but not being a licensed PI limits him to the type of jobs he can take on.

    Medically discharged, Kade Alme is trying to build a new life for himself outside the Marines, and he would like it to included Ollie. See, he has always had a thing for his best friend’s younger brother, so when Ollie is in need of a licensed PI, Kade comes to his rescue. Sadly, Ollie believes given time, everyone will eventually leave. It doesn’t help that his parents died when he was fourteen, then his boyfriend cheated on him and then there’s the death of his brother. You can see why Ollie would put up a barrier to protect himself.

    When he receives a call from the hospital about childhood friend, Donovan Reed, Ollie feels the need to help out. Soon after looking into his friend’s accident, weird and horrible things start to happen. It doesn’t help that Ollie seems to attract danger everywhere he goes; even with Kade close by.

    In the end, the case gets solved and both Ollie and Kade get their HFN. Just a FYI, this is a “sort of” cliffhanger. However, do not fret. It does not involve the MC’s relationship at all.

    I really enjoyed listening to this audiobook! Seriously, what’s not to like when a book contains: lots of manties and an online reality sex show. There is so much going on in this book, you will not want to put it down. Not to mention how developed the characters are in the book.

    I cannot wait for the next in the series, which I’m told will be out in October.


    The Narrator
    OMG, I love this narrator! Mike Pohlable, has a wide range of voices for the characters in this book, it is unbelievable. Seriously everyone character, male and female, is very distinct; which is really nice when determining which character is speaking. To top it off, he puts a lot of emotion into his work that really makes this audiobook wonderful. IMO, I would put him in the same vicinity as Robert Petkoff.

    I am one of many reviewers at Gay Book Reviews.

    I received an ARC of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

    "Better than you'd think."

    A great starter to the game, I can't wait to see what happens in the next installment.
    Took a chapter to get used to the narrator but now will be keeping an eye out for more of his work,

    Story
    "4 1/2 star story , 5 star performance"

    The story was excellent. The mystery was good, maybe not amazing, but it was good enough to enjoy the story and not lose interest.
    I've listened to about 20 audio books but only one other time I tried listening to a story without either using immersion reading or having already read the book. I decided to try this one without having read it before or during and it wasn't difficult at all. It seems like a lot of stories I've heard the narrator uses the same voice for everyone or speaks in a monotone even when the characters are laughing or crying. I've never listened to a story narrated by Mike Pohlable before but he was really good all around. He made the characters have emotion (which IMO that's hard to find in a narrator) and he changed his voice for different characters. When I listen to an audio book I need to hear the different characters clearly so I don't get everyone mixed up and he did an awesome job at giving everyone their own voice.
