It could be lights out for college theatre professor Nicky Abbondanza. With dead bodybuilders popping up on campus, Nicky, and his favorite colleague/life partner Noah Oliver, must use their drama skills to figure out who is taking down pumped up musclemen in the Physical Education building before it is curtain down for Nicky and Noah. Complicating matters is a visit from Noah's parents from Wisconsin, and Nicky's suspicion that Noah may be hiding more than a cut, smooth body.

I read the book and loved it, so I thought it would be like having my own inside man, knowing exactly what to expect with no surprises, right? WRONG. The surprise was Chip Hurley.
He was just so phenomenally good in giving me the ultimate connection that he delivered when following Nicky and Noah in their sleuthing exploits.
So how do you explain the audio version of the marvellous Drama Muscle by Joe Cosentino??? Well. I think saying that it's a clever and very imaginative mystery frolic, with Nicky and Noah being the main "frolicers" (try saying that 3 times fast) is a very good start.
It was a laugh-a-thong from start to finish and as I have already stated, Chip Hurley deserves full credit for making it so. His narration, with the clever use of various vocal pitches was masterful and his comic timing spot-on. He went from a warm to a strident tone with such ease, I was in awe and made it a joy to listen too. You get so lost in the storyline that you forget that it's only one narrator playing all the parts.
I thoroughly enjoyed the way he portrayed Nicky and Noah but for me, his portrayal of the arrogant/vainglorious Van Granite stole the show.
Highly recommended.

A serial killer is preying upon gay men in Los Angeles. Detective Cassidy Ryan of the LAPD is out to stop the monster before more mutilated corpses turn up. The victims have one thing in common and it leads back to an infamous online club called DOMZ.com. The website owner, Zachary Teak, is stunningly gorgeous and infuriatingly uncooperative.

Patricia Logan knows how to write a good storyline, but when she enters the world of erotica, readers know why she has been crowned The Queen of BDSM - she reigns supremely but with a firm hand (lol)! Mix this up with a narrator's voice that just oozes liquid sex and leaves you wet in all the right places, then you know that you are onto a 5* winner all the way and that is exactly what this author delivered. I've read the book so many times, I've lost count and now she's introduced me to the wonderful world of audio and I may never recover. This book should definitely carry a public health warning - DO NOT READ IN PUBLIC AS MASS SEXUAL HYSTERIA MAY ENSUE! I strongly suggest that you listen to this in the privacy of your own home - you have been warned!
