After four tours in Afghanistan, Warren Groves couldn’t settle into civilian life. For the last 12 years, he’s survived by working odd and often illegal jobs for some of Denver’s less fortunate. His personal life is equally unsatisfactory. He can barely remember the last time he had sex, let alone the last time he got to use somebody hard and rough, the way he likes. Fate intervenes when a favor for a friend leads him to a pretty, young rent boy named Taylor Reynolds.

What made the experience of listening to One Man's Trash the most enjoyable?

It grabbed me right from the beginning. I listen in the car and couldn't wait to get back on my journey to carry on with the story.

What was one of the most memorable moments of One Man's Trash?

It's dark, I mean dark dark! The lengths Warren goes to to try and help him are extreme. The most memorable scene is when Warren has to ask his friends for help....

Which character – as performed by John Solo – was your favorite?

John Solo was excellent narrating this book. I have heard him on another book and just didn't really like him on that - it must have been an exception though because I really enjoyed him on this one. His characters were easy to differentiate and he did Taylors panic'd voice brilliantly.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely, although after some of the scenes I probably needed a break to clear my head.

Any additional comments?

I would so recommend it but be aware, this is no fluffy romance. None the less, it's a superb love story.

After giving up on his career as a country singer in Nashville, Christopher Ryder is happy enough performing at the Smoky Mountain Dreams theme park in Tennessee. But while his beloved Gran loves him the way he is, Christopher feels painfully invisible to everyone else. Even when he's center stage he aches for someone to see the real him. Bisexual Jesse Birch has no room in his life for dating. Raising two kids and fighting with family after a tragic accident took his children's mother, he doesn't want more than an occasional hook-up

If you could sum up Smoky Mountain Dreams in three words, what would they be?

Beautiful love story

What was one of the most memorable moments of Smoky Mountain Dreams?

The chemistry between Jessie and Christopher is fantastic. They have so much to overcome but you could feel the love they had for each other shining through.

Have you listened to any of John Solo’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I haven't but I will be searching out other books he's narrated. I loved reading the book but John Solo breathed extra life into Jessie and Christopher for me.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Everyone deserves another chance for love.

Any additional comments?

I have so far enjoyed everything Leta Blake has written, her books are completely different from each other but they have all the feels! If you haven't tried this Author yet, I would highly recommend
