Rand O'Malley dreams of superstardom. He hopes to one day sing the blues like a god. Moving to New York City and hiring a new manager are steps to make his dreams a reality. But nothing moves as fast as Rand would like, and everyone has opinions, for example that he should keep certain pieces of himself quiet if he plans on making it in the Big Apple. Like his bisexuality.

I'm very happy with this audiobook!!!!!!
It wasn't perfect... the narrator, Seth Clayton, while giving some charachters like Tim and Benny identifiable voices, has the MCs sound practically the same... there were a few times where I was confused by who was saying what. Seth also has some odd stops and starts in his sentences, which are noticeable throughout but not anything that bothered me, it just seemed odd.

Now the bonus points....

#1. HE SINGS!!!!!!!!!!!! Just a couple lines here and there but that was a first for me!!!! Holy crap!!!!! It's awesome!

He also adds in all kinds of goodies, expected and not. At one point he speaks while eating a cheeseburger and it sounds realistic and later he speaks while eating m&ms and they sound different and totally believable!! How?! And it doesn't even say Rand is doing that, it's just natural and feels right and keeps you in the story. Very cool!

He's also fantastic with expressing emotions when people are speaking... going from soft to yelling to excited to happy... it's all there and it's all conveyed.

OH, and his George?! He is INCREDIBLE! He somehow perfectly sounds like a middle aged friendly New Yorker.. you can HEAR his smile! There has to be a real life inspiration for that voice because it's just perfect!

The narration truly makes this story even more enjoyable. I love a lot about this book and while the story isn't perfect, add in this narration and it gets 5 stars from me.

I look forward to the audio of the rest of the series, even though no one can top Rand & Will <3

Do you believe in love at first sight? Sanford Stewart sure doesn't. In fact, he pretty much believes in the exact opposite, thanks to the Homo Jock King. It seems Darren Mayne lives for nothing more than to create chaos in Sandy's perfectly ordered life, just for the hell of it. Sandy despises him, and nothing will ever change his mind. Or so he tells himself.
