Where He Ends and I Begin: Home Series

Jake Owens, aggressive, physical, blunt and brave, is a football hero turned city cop. Nate Richardson, his best friend since before forever, is thoughtful, quiet, and kind, a brilliant doctor who has always known who he is and that Jake is the love of his life - and loyal, courageous, straight Jake has never had a clue. But Jake has been nursing his own case of the unrequiteds, and he’s never been as straight as Nate assumes. Nate may think their passionate explosion is a fluke, a result of too much closeness for too long, but Jake is bound and determined to prove to him otherwise.

    Story
    "Good..but there really is no story is there?"

    I really liked this book... I am so into the m/m stories at the moment. Even though I like this book, I felt it seriously lacked a plot, drama, action...whatever you want to call it. It just lacked a point. It was basically the story of best friends who are now in a relationship. Each chapter jump from Jake's POV to Nate's POV. The both repeat the very last scene of the previous chapter then add a little more. I mean it was cute...but I only think b/c Sean Crisden narrated this. I have said this many times before... A story can totally sink or swim b/c of the narrator and if it wasn't for Crisden, I think this story would have totally sunk! Crisden really brings his characters to life, by all the emotion he use when narrating. I actually pick the story b/c of Crisden, so I am not to disappointed for that, but I don't know if I will listen to another Cardeno C. book if they are all like this jumping POV thing.

    This is a good credit if you are waiting for another book to come out. If not, just wait till you stack your credits up then maybe get this just for Crisden's narration alone. Crisden is just that good.

    Story
    "Sweet story, not into the reader though"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The reader was my main issue with this book. I've read it on my kindle before and it is a super sappy story, which I really enjoy so I'm good with that, but I cringed a little at first with the reader when I listened to the audiobook. I felt that the reader was not a good choice for this book. I could see this reader doing well with a book that wasn't a romance. The tone that the reader used for Jake made it sound like he was Nate's father and it skeeved me out a bit.


    What other book might you compare Where He Ends and I Begin to and why?

    Well I would probably compare it to other Cardeno C. books. They are all sappy sweet gay romances with a soul mate theme (or at least the one's I've read so far are like that). If you don't like sappy than its not a good choice for you but if enjoy that kind of thing than they can be satisfying reads.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Mostly it was that the tone that the narrator used for Jake sounded like a condescending parent when he was talking to Nate a lot of the time. Also the way he read the sex scenes was off in my opinion. I really do think this narrator could do well with a different kind of book though.


    Was Where He Ends and I Begin worth the listening time?

    I'm really not that picky so yeah, for me it was. I could ignore that I didn't like how the narrator read it to some extent and when it got really bad it was interesting to wonder who the hell decided that this reader was a good fit for this book. It was like watching a bad movie for the fun of it.
