Five months in, NHL forward Ryan Wesley is having a record-breaking rookie season. He's living his dream of playing pro hockey and coming home every night to the man he loves - Jamie Canning, his longtime best friend turned boyfriend. There's just one problem: the most important relationship of his life is one he needs to keep hidden, or else face a media storm that will eclipse his success on the ice.

(Un)Embarrassed to say it brought tears to my eyes... several times. Love the ending with the green shirts. Love Ryan and Jamie's story. I know there won't be a third book but hoping for it anyway.

On his first day of college, all Jeremy Miller can think about is getting away from his hellish home life, making the wrestling team, and finally getting a real boyfriend. He's sick to death of being used by closeted football players who are too afraid to admit they like guys. What he doesn't count on is losing his mind over the gorgeous, golden-eyed wrestling captain who needs to keep their attraction a secret at all costs.

I love all the books from Maris Black I've listened to so far. I started with the Kage Series. This was kind of similar but different enough for me to still enjoy immensely. The relationship between Beck and Jeremy is so compelling it makes you hope you'll find such a relationship yourself one day. The ending was a bit abrupt. I wish I had an explanation of why Jeremy decided to do what he did towards the end. I understand what caused him to do it, but without him never doing such a thing before, it did seem random. But then again the circumstances that led to it would be very traumatic. I'm glad Beck let Jeremy be his Batman at the end. I'm going to imagine they eventually get married and live happily ever after. They seem so such in love. I hope the next book in this series is just as good.

My name is Jamie Atwood, and I'm an addict. I never thought I'd say such a thing. Never had a problem being overly attached to anything in my life. I came from a perfectly middle-class family, made good grades, and had a hot cheerleader girlfriend...but the truth is, nothing ever really moved me. So how did a guy like me become an addict? I met Michael Kage. Kage is an MMA fighter. A famous one. I like to think I helped him get that way.

One of the best books I've listened to in awhile. It was the most built up anticipation waiting for Kage & Jamie's connection to finally blossom. The ending is sad and I hope in book two I don't get disappointed. I really want a happy ending for Kage & Jamie.

Daniel Mulligan is tough, snarky, and tattooed, hiding his self-consciousness behind sarcasm. Daniel has never fit in - not at home in Philadelphia with his auto mechanic father and brothers, and not at school where his Ivy League classmates looked down on him. Now, Daniel's relieved to have a job at a small college in Holiday, Northern Michigan, but he's a city boy through and through, and it's clear that this small town is one more place he won't fit in.

WICKED has taken everything from Thomas: his life, his memories, and now his only friends — the Gladers. But it's finally over. The trials are complete, after one final test. What WICKED doesn't know is that Thomas remembers far more than they think. And it's enough to prove that he can't believe a word of what they say. Thomas beat the Maze. He survived the Scorch. He'll risk anything to save his friends. But the truth might be what ends it all. The time for lies is over.

On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

What a great listen/book. I watched the Hulu series first, which got me interested in the book... but the book had so much more detail and it was such a great book to listen to. I loved it and would recommend it to anyone.

Benjamin Bentley and many other beloved characters from the Something Like...series make their triumphant return in this collection of short stories and bonus material. "Something Like Yesterday" travels to the past where Eric Conroy attempts to find love against a backdrop of intolerance and political upheaval. In "Something Like Fall", Ben meets Jace's family and tries to cope with many changes in the years that follow.

My name is Nathaniel Courtney, and I m a survivor. I didn't let the cruelty of others wear me down, and I've weathered the more subtle hardships of the heart. Love is a Trojan horse, slipping past your guard and leaving you ransacked and vulnerable. I emerged from that war not unscathed but as a new man. The only mistake I ever made was letting the right guy get away. Now I've got one more chance. This is the final battle, because if I fail now...I won't. You'll see.

I just listened to the entire book series for a second time and it was just as good if not better than the first. I love Nathaniel's and Kelly's story. This entire series is so wonderful and I'd recommend it to anyone. It generates tears at some point and many many smiles at others. Thanks Jay Bell for a great book and Kevin R Free is such a great narrator.

There are two sides to every story. When you're Tim Wyman, sometimes there are three. Tim hoped moving to Texas would mean a new beginning, but he soon finds himself falling into the same tired patterns. Until he meets recklessly brave Benjamin Bentley, who introduces Tim to a world of love, sex, and warmth. Certain that society won't understand what he and Ben have together, Tim struggles to protect their relationship, even if it means twisting the truth. Buried beneath his own deceptions, Tim must claw his way to the surface in the hopes of learning to fly.

The first book was great. It was nice hearing the story from Tim's perspective. So glad we got a bit extra at the end to see what happens with them. I bought the third book but I really only want to hear about Ben and Tim, but I'll give it a try knowing that the fourth book leads to them. Great story and I recommend this book to anyone who needs a bit of joy in their heart.

Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he's alive - and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plainold "human error" are much more likely to kill him first.
