    "A true Masterpiece"

    This is the third installment of Jay Bell's 'Something like' series that I've read and unbelievably, it was even better than the previous ones! While the second book meant the most to me as I could relate the most, this one is to me the cap stone that holds together the whole story of Ben, Tim and Jace. As there are four seasons, not just three, I'm now curious about Spring. I have high expectations, as this Author is getting from great to even better from book to book!

    Story
    "started intense, then turned into nothing special"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    falling for a homeless guy? maybe if there weren't so many panhandlers in my city then this could have been a bit more believable :-/ It started out great and I had high hopes for it. Unfortunately the book didn't deliver.


    How could the performance have been better?

    the performance overall was decent, just a bad story.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I did like the relationship between Jace and his sister.... And the store owner, the older man who gave Jace a job so that he would have less idle time. I liked his part in the story also. The book got so bad I have already forgotten character's names...and I don't care enough about the book to do an internet search to find out their names.


    Any additional comments?

    Huge let down.

    Any additional comments?

    This story seriously should have been narrated, performed by Matt Baca or Chris Patton! The realness and the emotions they could have brought to these characters would have made this emotionally charged, beautifully told story just take your breath away.

    I actually read this story a while ago, so to actually get to hear it is almost as good as maybe watching it unfold in a movie or on tv. My heart was still happily broken at the end of this and Jace is still my favorite character in this entire series.

    Great developed characters, a wonderfully told story of coming of age, and the turbulent road to love, patience, and a happily ever after (what that is for Jace).

    Ok, I'm teary up again, so this is definitely, absolutely, without a doubt worth your money and time.

    A sad but beautiful love story!

    "I knew it was coming, yet here I sit crying"

    This book (this trio of stories) is one of the most moving and powerful love stories I have ever heard. Not just in the LGBT community, but anywhere. I knew the outcome of his book, because of the previous two, and yet I was hooked all the way to the end. I believe these books should be on everybody's reading list. Thank you to the author for allowing me the pleasure of hearing this story. *Standing Ovation*

    What did you love best about Something Like Autumn?

    After listening to books one and two, I knew to have the tissues ready. This was really a great listen that I couldn't put away.

    Story
    "Wonderful"

    I waited for months to get this book because I read the first two books in this series and knew what happens to Jase. But I finally got up the courage to listen to Jase's story. I'm really glad I did even though it broke my heart all over again, but it was closure for the Ben, Tim, Jase saga. It was kind of like the movie Apollo 13, even though I knew the space capsule ultimately gets back to earth, I was still captivated by the journey.

    Jay Bell continues his theme of it is possible to love more than one person in a lifetime and still get a HEA. The only reason the story lost a star was I just really didn't like Victor. I know he was a major influence on why Jase turned out like he did and it was useful to understanding Jase, but I just hated him throughout the whole book.

    The narrator continues to do an excellent job and was amazing. So worth a credit.

    "This Third Will Clobber Your Senses"

    This story is all about tragedy, what could have been but was not. Bring a box of Kleenex. Even knowing from the prior two seasons what happens to Jace, you cannot be prepared. I am not certain where Jay Bell got the courage to write this one, but he did and it was amazingly good. Oh, and Kevin Free? Fantastic narration.
