It's not easy for a young gay artist like Jordan Carson to grow up in Jefferson, Wisconsin, where all anyone seems to care about in middle school and high school are the sports teams. But Jordan was lucky. He met Owen Nelson in the second grade, and they've been BFFs ever since. Owen is a big, beautiful blond and their school's champion wrestler. No one messes with Owen, or with anyone close to him, and he bucks popular opinion by keeping Jordan as his wingman even after Jordan comes out at school.
Their friendship survives, but Jordan's worst enemy may be himself: he can't seem to help the fact that he is head-over-heels in love with a hopeless case - his straight friend, Owen. Owen won't let anything take Jordan's friendship away, but he never counted on Jordan running off to find a life of his own. Owen will have to face the nature of their relationship if he's to win Jordan back.

I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
What a cute m/m romance.. You just know that HEA is gonna be so squeezable and cute.I really enjoy this... learning about the BBF turned to lovers... I totally enjoyed it.. Totally worth a credit or buy... Narration was ok.. not the best..but not horrible.
Yes, it is a quick and sweet story. It borders on young adult to new adult.
I loved Jordan and Owen, both!
His voice was perfect for the age of the guys.
Yes, it is short enough to listen to
This is my first book narrated by Tristan Wright. He was great, except it his voice did not waver at all between characters. His switch in POV was difficult at times. He would state Owen or Jordan's name, and if you were not listening closely, you could miss it. He was seamless in his transition which made it difficult to figure out if he was still reading or switching between characters. His voice was perfect for this age group and I would give him a "try" again.
Charming and adorable.
Rainbow High, and not just for the obvious high school affiliation, but for the coming of age story told so well in both.
This is my first audio book with Tristan Wright as narrator and he is spectacular! I will be looking (and hoping) for him as narrator in all my future audiobooks.
This is a story that any gay guy can relate to on many different levels. it's great to hear a story which brings back such deep warm feelings. You never want the story to end and it easily could become a series.
The narrator was perfect for the role. My only complaint was the lack of changing voices between characters. That's no reason to write this story off. It is well worth your time.
Someone who cannot get enough "reading" on the web, Kindle, iPhone, Audible..even a REAL paper book once in awhile. Save a tree..use E.
Even though it's sappy. It's and ending that's happy. Well delivered too. I really recommend it.
"Short but Enjoyable!"
As much as I enjoyed Superhero, unfortunately it's probably near the bottom! Don't get me wrong, this is an enjoyable story, but not up to the standard of 'The Lion and The Crow', also by Eli Easton
When Owen finally realised what he wanted!
This was my first time listening to Tristan. His narration is good, but there were times when there was no differentiation between characters, which detracted somewhat from a generally good performance
It did make me smile and gave me a 'warm' feeling
There was a part, early on in the story where there was an overly long description of the comic strip, which for me was unnecessary and didn't add anything.
