Publisher's Summary

Stefan Joss just can't win. Not only does he have to go to Texas in the middle of summer to be the man of honor in his best friend Charlotte's wedding, but he's expected to negotiate a million-dollar business deal at the same time. Worst of all, he’s thrown for a loop when he arrives to see the one man Charlotte promised wouldn’t be there: her brother, Rand Holloway. Stefan and Rand have been mortal enemies since the day they met, so Stefan is shocked when a temporary cease-fire sees the usual hostility replaced by instant chemistry.

Though leery of the unexpected feelings, Stefan is swayed by a sincere revelation from Rand, and he decides to give Rand a chance. But their budding romance is threatened when Stefan’s business deal goes wrong: the owner of the last ranch he needs to secure for the company is murdered. Stefan’s in for the surprise of his life as he finds himself in danger as well.

Great story, not so great narration

What made the experience of listening to Timing (Gay Romance) the most enjoyable?

The story is awsome, I really liked the characters. Sean Crisden's voice is nice and sexy.

What other book might you compare Timing (Gay Romance) to and why?

Still don't do comparisons each books are unique.

What three words best describe Sean Crisden’s performance?

Just 3 words? Don't think so... The monologues were awsome, Stephen's voice was a great performance, the female voices not so much and Rand... well not the greatest try to make him sound macho and sexy.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Sort of. The story that I wanted to here all at once, the narration gave me doubts.

Any additional comments?

I surly will read the second book. And I will give an otber try to the narrator in a different book I really liked his voice even if I am not 100 percent fond of his performance in this book.

Always amazing.

Mary Calmes is the master of fluff and happily ever after and impossibly perfect men. She's just fun to read and this book is no exception. It's just perfect and an easy listen when you just want something happy. And Sean Crisden (and Paul Morey) is my favorite voice actor. So it's just a really good one to listen over and over again to.

waste of time

A complete waste of time and money.
The plot is primitive and is clear from the third page. The characters are plain and don't develop whatsoever through the story. The book has no idea in it and doesn't even provide any entertainment.
There is better use for your money.

Boring.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

It falls in the chasm between porn and novel, doing neither well or interestingly. Save your money, do not buy this.

Bad Narration!

Would you consider the audio edition of Timing (Gay Romance) to be better than the print version?

Narration was baaaad, Felt rush and fake. Print version was better.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Sean Crisden?

NO!

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed the reading of this story more than the audio.One thing I noticed is the narrator was rushing through the story, and really had problems with voice characterization. No real distinction between voices.Emotion was almost nil.

It was no Warder Series

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

What could make this a 4 or 5 star listening experience? That's easy, if only it wasn't boring. And if the girl characters didn't sound like idiots and the main character seemed realistic, then sure. Let me just say that I bought this because I loved the Warder Series and I won't ask for my money back, because toward the middle, this book did get fun. but that didn't last long.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Not much was interesting. I did find some one liners that made me laugh out loud. The least interesting would have to be the girls. Geez they sounded stupid. Especially the best friend. The conflict was tepid at best.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The girl voices.

What character would you cut from Timing (Gay Romance)?

The best friend.

Any additional comments?

I will listen to stories from this author again, but I won't jump on them like I did the Warder Series. Those, I bought right away but these new ones, well, I'll be more careful. Her writing wasn't bad at all, and for that I am thankful. But the story just wasn't for me. Try the Warder Series. those were great, though the first few's narration was a bit... dry. I still liked them.

Good romance

I bought this book because it had high marks and low price on Audible. I have to say the voice for Rand just sounded like the guy had a bad case of cold but everything else was really nice. I like the sweet story from the beginning to end. A really easy read about a nice gay guy and a really hot straight (or not so straight) guy. To tell the truth it read like a yaoi manga than an American m-m. And there is a sequel, but unfortunately no audio version.
