Publisher's Summary

Just out of the service, Dave Henderson is home and ready to enjoy the sexual freedom he didn’t have in the Marine Corps. When he meets Jack Stonner at a party thrown by a neighbor, Dave is immediately attracted to him and launches a seduction, one that starts with sex but soon grows into love.

Then Dave draws the fierce attentions of a local mobster, and Dave’s new employers at a local law firm insist that Dave continue to conduct business with him. Jack and Dave's new relationship may be derailed, because Franklin Venchenzo is used to taking what he wants by force—and Jack is standing in his way.

Wow, shocking how really, really bad this is.

With all the great M/M books out there, I can't understand why someone bothered to record this excruciatingly bad book. As far as the reader, and yes, he's a reader (and a bad one at that) not a narrator, if I see he's reading a book, I won't buy it.

Terrible !

The narration of this book is horrible. The author reads in a boring, flat voice. Read the book instead.

Good story, bad sound

Both of the books I have gotten by John Simpson have good stories but it sounds like they are recorded in an echo chamber. I wish they would be recorded under better circumstances!

Worst. Narrator. Ever.

Would you try another book from John Simpson and/or John Simpson?

I would. I liked the plot and the characters very much.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Jack and Dave?

I'm always a sucker for the "I love you" moment.

How could the performance have been better?

The narrator was terrible. He has a nasally voice, seemed to be just reading the words from the book with absolutely no prior preparation, had zero inflection or emotion.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Sure.

Bad Writing, Bad Story, Bad Narration, Bad Sex

Hard to find writing more trite, predictable or badly narrated.

Amateur erotica authors let this be a warning to you in seeing what kind ratings you get if you attempt to do your own narration.

Horrible Reader

What disappointed you about Jack and Dave?

Wish I would have read more reviews before buying this one. I couldn't get past the horrible reading to even listen to the story.

Has Jack and Dave turned you off from other books in this genre?

Turned me off this author and his reading skills.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of John Simpson?

Another reader.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I don't know, I couldn't get past the reader.

Any additional comments?

Authors should not read their own books!

Narration is so bad I may not listen to the rest

Would you try another book from John Simpson and/or John Simpson?

Not sure

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Authors don't automatically make good narrators.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of John Simpson?

Sean Crisden! If the author wants to improve his narrative skills, listen to Sean and learn.

Any additional comments?

I only rated the story and overall a 3 simply because I couldn't get any further in the review without putting something. If I finish the book I hope and can update my review.

Porn

Not that I'm a prude.... but when I was listening I had to roll up the windows on a summer day.... If that's what you are looking for... then it's porn with bad narration.
