    "Don't Miss This Wonderful Book!"

    Something Like Summer took me by storm, a wonderful read that I had to finish in less than 24 hours. I cried at the end because it was over too soon, a beautiful story. But I had no idea what was in store with Something Like Winter. Tim was an enigma in Something Like Summer. Something Like Winter shines the sun on Tim, his loves, mistakes and foibles. The best part is the sweet, sweet ending. I cried my eyes out over it, it was so beautiful. I wish all of gay romance fiction could be like both books, epic in time if not scope. Full of love and tragedy, heartache and triumph. I am sure I will be reading this pair again, not soon, but someday. The narration was perfect, by the way, a wonderful perk and dimension that I would not have wished to miss.

    Story
    "I love Happy Endings!!!"
    What did you love best about Something Like Winter?

    Have you ever wanted to see what it was like to walk in someone elses shoes or be a fly on the wall watching two people meet and fall in love. Something Like Winter gives you the opportunity to do just that . Jay Bell was so right on in staying with Tim's point of view kept the story real for me.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ben! If you listened to Something Like Summer you know that Ben isn't as cool and collected as Tim portrays him in Something Like Winter. To hear Tim talk about Ben you just have to fall in love with him all over again.


    Which character – as performed by Kevin R. Free – was your favorite?

    Allison Cross- Kevin portrayed her as a strong women giving her a voice of strength and possessiveness for Ben.


    Who was the most memorable character of Something Like Winter and why?

    The most memorable character would have to be the supporting characters of Tim and Ben. Eric Conroy was patient and non-judgmental with Tim and that is very hard to do when you love someone. Jace for trusting and supporting, Ben he was such a good big part of the story. Marcello, what a character he would slide in right at the last second to do what was right. He proves that no character is black and white. Grays are so much more interesting to read about.


    Any additional comments?

    I am really hoping the author Jay Bell records the rest of the series with the same narrator. He did a fantastic job with the characters giving each one a personality and a unique voice.

    Story
    "How much do I love this series?"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Something Like Winter to be better than the print version?

    NO! both add to each other, I fell in love with the printed version of the series. Listening to Seasons just brings the story back to the forefront.


    What did you like best about this story?

    We get to know Tim and understand how his story with Ben evolved.


    What does Kevin R. Free bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He brings a new dimension to the voice I hear in my head, although I am not the biggest fan of how Tim sounds all the time.


    If you could take any character from Something Like Winter out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Eric!


    Any additional comments?

    I just hope that we will not wait too, too long for Autumn and Spring to be available.
