Trick of Time

A lover from another time... When Ted Ennis steps out the doors of the Criterion Theatre for a cigarette and finds himself in Victorian London, he begins to doubt his sanity. At first he thinks it's all a film set, and is sure that the strikingly handsome young man leaning against a lamppost must be the leading man.… What starts as a sordid transaction with a beautiful rent boy quickly turns into something much deeper, drawing him back again and again as he gets to know Jem and craves meaningful encounters with him.

A lover from another time...

When Ted Ennis steps out the doors of the Criterion Theatre for a cigarette and finds himself in Victorian London, he begins to doubt his sanity. At first he thinks it's all a film set, and is sure that the strikingly handsome young man leaning against a lamppost must be the leading man.…

    Story
    "Got my heart racing a bit, it did"
    What made the experience of listening to Trick of Time the most enjoyable?

    I don't usually get so caught up in stories. I hardly ever feel anxiety about the ending when I read a romance, since most romance publishers require a happy ending. This story is well-written and gripping, and feels different than the normal genre-conforming romance short stories I've read. I became so invested in the characters that I had to skip ahead to the end before I could continue with the story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I think Ted is a great character, and much of the reason I felt so much anxiety during the story is it would be just as easy for him to break completely as it would be for him to find redemption. I also quite like Jem, and find him sweet, though he is not as convincing as Ted.


    What about Fleet Cooper’s performance did you like?

    He did a fantastic job with the accents in the story, using slightly different tones and inflections for each character. It was a little difficult to get into his reading of the story at first, however, as his voice is not my favorite, hence the four stars instead of five. He's a talented voice actor, though, and I think most people will enjoy his reading of this.


    Any additional comments?

    Wish there had been more sex, but as the story is only about 3 hours long, I GUESS it was a reasonable amount.

    "Can't even get through it to rate it!"

    I tried 3 separate times to listen to this book. For some reason I couldn't listen to the narrator for more than a chapter and, even then, couldn't follow the story. I won't buy a book read by this narrator again. I advise listening to a sample prior to buying. I wish I had.

    Story
    "Shakespeare?"

    Ted's accent didn't suit his character. I have watched a fair bit of English TV and never heard that accent outside Shakespeare.
    I thought the time travel aspect would be interesting, but it added nothing to the story. I got bored and skipped to the end to find out what happened.

    "Nice.."

    Nice story...but could have been better, maybe if it was a bit longer. I didn't really like the ending all to much... This is not a read again book... just a one timer.
    For the price, I would just buy and save my credit.
