Although this is a m/m romance... it is soooo much more. The raw characters and emotional subject matter struck so deep into my soul. Oryn and his alters and Vaughn with his ever determined ability to love all of him made this book unpausable. I had to listen from start to finish, even though I have already read the book.

So very credit worthy.

Adam Gold is audio gold! His ability to give each alter their own distinct voice and cadence was astounding! I never was wondering which alter was fronting, his voice said it all.

I've hated Rachel Dawson since I was seven years old. My next-door neighbor and number-one sworn enemy - she's the reason why almost all of our childhood fights ended with me setting something of hers on fire. (Or, vice versa.) She snitched on me when I broke curfew. I snitched on her when she lied about having a boyfriend. We went back and forth like this throughout high school, both vowing to never talk to each other again when we went off to college. But that was until she showed up at my apartment during my senior year and asked me for a temporary place to stay.

So light hearted and cute. It was enemies but they were adorable enemies... more like frienemies. The banter was funny and the flashbacks to their childhood were perfectly placed to understand their relationship.

Joe Arden and Erin Mallon are always the correct choice. They both have the ability to keep you engaged in the story and bring a book to a whole new level.

I have read this book and the narration brought it to a whole new level. The narrators that were chosen were absolutely perfect, Abby had that strong yet vulnerable tone that made Liv come to life and Teddy sounded the perfect age of innocence that Van would have had.

Pam Godwin is a literary genius for the type of books that I love to read. The way she is able to reinvent concepts is absolutely brilliant.

In Deliver, we meet Liv and Van. They have been trained to take why their customer wants, train the way their customer has demanded and then deliver the product to the consumer.

It just so happens that their product is human and they are selling sex slaves. It's dark, it's twisted and it's depraved and just when you think you have it all figured out and Pam has shown her cards, you quickly realize it was a rouse and you know nothing. This keeps me turning pages without the ability to stop.

5 star, one click worthy. Hands down.

This book is worth the credit just to listen to Andi and SebYo interview at the end. But luckily, you get a great book as well.

So light and funny with an awesome all-star cast of narrators that made the book that much better. Duet narration isn’t my favorite because often there are pauses between conversations that create a disconnect. Because of the way this book was narrated with them all in the same room, the narration was FLAWLESS! I was so incredibly impressed. It felt like listening to a movie. The best duet narration I have ever listened to.

The book itself was such a great story, full of humor and such awesome relationships. The characters were all so interesting, I would love to get books from all of them.

Definitely worth the credit!!

I absolutely loved Clementine. Although the reason for her honesty and attitude was amnesia, she was so funny and I think everyone wishes they could be as honest as her.

There were a lot of light moments and some heavy, but nothing too deep. It was a really good easy listen.

Andi was great, of course.

Life makes no promises, and sometimes, you draw the short straw. Landon Johnston's life came to a grinding halt seven months ago when he was diagnosed with terminal cancer. With the encouragement of his grandmother, Landon worked his way out of his slump and tried to live life while he still could. Deciding he didn't want to drag anyone else down his morbid path, Landon gave up all friendships and denied himself love.

After reading No Regrets, my heart is just so full. What a beautiful tribute to life, to death and to living every moment. Abel and Landon were such a beautiful couple and the path they chose made every second of this book worth listening to.

Adam Gold!! Where have you been all my audio days?!?? His ability to give each character a voice that so distinctly matched their character was AMAZING. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to read or listen to this book and while I ended up doing both, the audio made this book just that much better.

Onto Abel’s book!

Angel - I know what you're whispering in the car as you pass me by. Hitchhiker. When you see me walking along the side of the road with my thumb out, you'll probably keep driving without giving me a second glance. You probably think I'm foolish. Naïve. You might assume I've made some bad decisions. You might think I'm too young to be on my own. You might be right. Travis - I love my job, but driving an 18-wheeler comes with a certain stereotype. When you hear I'm a trucker, a specific image might come to mind. Uneducated. Dirty. Perverted.

Virgin trucker and a lone hitchhiker. That sounds way kinkier than this story is because it’s so sweet and lovable. I never wanted it to end. The characters were so honest and vulnerable, I absolutely loved this story.

The narration was perfect. The voices were exactly what I would have imagined in my head if I read the story.

They spent a night together once before. A night he's forgotten, thanks to a bottle of tequila. A night that crushed a timid girl's heart and set a broken man on the path to heal them both.

The small town of Lark Cove and all its cast of characters are back. A shy girl with a crush and the bad boy that is getting his life together, not even knowing that he was missing something.

This book is full of mid level angst, mystery and lots and lots of love. Enough to fill me up from head to toe.

Maxine and Aaron were perfectly cast. Their narration brought the characters to life.

Being an identical twin doesn't come without issues. No one can tell us apart, not even our parents sometimes. We don't usually use that to our advantage, but it comes in handy when my brother needs help breaking up with his boyfriends - which happens more than I'd care to admit. I know it's enabling him, but I can't say no to Anders. I will do anything for my twin. The breakups always go the same; they're swift and simple. Until Reed. When I give in to temptation, it's not because he's a guy. It's because he thinks I'm my brother, and I can't bring myself to tell him the truth.

This book is adorable. For such a big lie of twin switching, I was skeptical that it could turn around and be believable but holy bananas. This author made a believer out of me. The subplot was so perfect as well. I loved all the secondary characters and I’m hoping for a continuation of their stories.

My only complaint is that it had a few slow spots. But considering it’s such a short book and it was packed with so much content, it’s still a book I’m going to come back to and listen again.

The narration was so perfect. Clear, crisp, the narrators are such amazing actors. I was thoroughly impressed.
