State trooper Brandt's new assignment to infiltrate a sex-cam operation puts him in a very uncomfortable position, especially since he'll have to perform naked on camera for his audition. Fortunately his partner and best friend, Donnelly, has his back - whether that means helping Brandt shop gay boutiques for sexy underwear or offering Jager and encouragement while he researches porn. Despite his mortification, Brandt gives the audition his best "shot" - and becomes an overnight sensation.

Would you listen to Frat House Troopers again? Why?

The plot is so over the top that I just loved it. Don't go in expecting realism. The two main characters are super-hot. There's also a sense of humor in the writing that I appreciate.

Any additional comments?

I think this audio book was tiny bit too long. Editing down some of the minor characters would not be a bad idea.

I like Brandon Witt's writing. His characters are believable and likable. He really creates a full world. I've listened to this book more than once. What would make this book even better would be more judicious editing. It drags in places and I think if it was 60 to 90 minutes shorter nothing would be lost.

Entomology grad student Adam Ellery meets Denver Rogers, a muscle-bound hunk of sexy, when Denver effortlessly dispatches the drunken frat boys harassing Adam at the Tucker Springs laundromat. Thanking him turns into flirting, and then, much to Adam's delight, hot sex over the laundry table. Though Denver's job as a bouncer at a gay bar means he gets his pick of geek-sexy college twinks, he can't get Adam out of his head.

Would you try another book from Heidi Cullinan and/or Iggy Toma?

I understand this is a romance novel and everyone needs a tragic flaw or two, but Heidi Cullinan saddled nerdy Adam with so many problems and anxiety it made it impossible for me to believe that Denver would like him. I stopped listening about 1/3 through.

What does Iggy Toma bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Iggy Toma is one of the top two or three narrators that I've listened to. Always excellent.

After a decade of serving in the Army, everyone still expects me to be Dominic "Nicky" Costigan, the skirt-chasing player. They don't know I've been spending my days trying to figure out my post-military life. Including how to pick up guys. When I meet Luke on a hookup app, he makes it clear it's for one night only. That's fine with me, because I'm down to see what this silver fox can do. But after I arrive at his doorstep, it doesn't take long to realize we have serious chemistry, and we end up meeting again.

If you could sum up Fast Connection in three words, what would they be?

This is a well-paced, believable, realistic, and very hot story.

What other book might you compare Fast Connection to and why?

Santino Hassell's writing style is very contemporary. Seems more rooted in real-life than many other authors of this genre. If I had to pick favorites, it would be Santino, Riley Hart, and Jay Northcote.

Any additional comments?

I look forward to his next audiobook!

Would you try another book from Rick R. Reed and/or Michael Pauley?

I would not purchase another book by this author.

What was most disappointing about Rick R. Reed’s story?

This is really a Young Adult novel with a poorly developed M/M subplot. The one sex scene seems like it was written by someone who find gay sex distasteful. The angst ridden teen is really the main character.

Where does Cold Feet rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I think this is one of the better stories I've listened to. The short length means the story focuses on the two main characters.

Have you listened to any of Matthew Lloyd Davies’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I've listened to a few of MLD's narrations. Always a top notch performance.

What did you love best about Nothing Serious?

It's a good story with believable characters.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

His narration was fine, but this is a story based in England with British slang. Sounds odd when spoken by an American.

Any additional comments?

Just stick to the print/Kindle version of this one.

How can you be 25 and not know you're gay? Billy Ballew runs from that question. A high school dropout, barely able to read until he taught himself, Billy's life is driven by his need to help support his parents as a construction worker, put his sisters through college, coach his Little League team, and not think about being a three-time loser in the engagement department. Then, in preparation for his sister's big wedding, Billy meets Shaz - alias Chase Phillips - a rising-star celebrity stylist who defines the word gay.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I thought the story was great, I just could not get past the way the character Ru was voiced.

What didn’t you like about K.C. Kelly’s performance?

The way the speaker voiced Ru was off-putting. Yes, Ru is gay. But did the speaker need to make Ru sound so very mincing? Ru sounds like some homophobe's idea of what gay men sound like.
