    "Super sweet romance"

    I really enjoyed this listen. Cole is a survivor of an abusive relationship and is forced to come back to his hometown to sort out his hoarder parent's estate. Jeremy is the local antiques dealer that assists him. The story is not great, but the romance that develops btwn the men is really sweet. The narrator does a great job. Worth a credit.

    Story
    "Loved it until the end... and odd narration"

    As my husband always says, "With Heather, the stranger the better." I love weird, what can I say?! When I saw this book was a M/M about hoarders I HAD to give it a go. I love anything to do with hoarders! (Again, I'm strange)

    As far as the story goes, this is a really angsty one. It has as much to do with domestic violence as it does with hoarding, so people who have issues reading about abuse, beware.

    The story started out VERY strong, like 4 star + strong. I loved fragile, recovering Cole and seeing him learn to trust again. He felt very real, and acted how I would guess a victim of domestic abuse would. I dug his chemistry with Jeremy, and I LOVE a bisexual character, so kudos to the author for putting more of those in M/M romance.

    The overall vibe was a very slow burn, hurt-comfort story, with some nice, hot scenes.

    However that ending... RAGE. I thought it was an extreme cop out. Hated it. No spoilers here but it was rushed and left me feeling empty, angry, and with unresolved issues.

    A note on the narration:

    This was my first time listening to J.P. Handler and, I have to say, it was a strange experience. He has an extremely robotic way of narrating, with no differentiation between the characters' voices. However, oddly enough, I think I enjoyed it?? I'm not going to try to over-analyze it, but I didn't hate the masculine robot vibe... I know, strange.

    Story
    "Mediacore narration with a pretty decent storyline"
    Where does Unearthing Cole rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Lower down the list, sadly. Bad narration can ruin an otherwise fantastic story. The narrator wasn't all that, but the story did manage to keep me intrigued, so kudos to the author. And that ending, fanfuckingtastic!


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Different narrator


    What didn’t you like about JP Handler’s performance?

    I didn't


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Something happens at the end, it's one of the few times Karma actually does come back and bite someone in the ass. I loved it!


    Any additional comments?

    I think I might suggest reading this one in lieu of the audio, just because the storyline was good but the narrator... not so much.
