Publisher's Summary

He was everything I needed when I thought I had it all....

As front man for the band, everyone’s eyes are on me.

I bask in the spotlight. Because it hides the flaws.

Everyone has secrets. Mine will ruin everything I’ve built.

My career, my music, my life.... 

But keeping this secret? It’s breaking my heart.

I knew how we would end before we started. And still I can’t resist him.

Not everyone will understand. But I do.

It’s simple. He’s the man I’m meant to love.

How long can I deny who I truly am?

Should I keep my secret or risk it all?

HIGHLY EMOTIONAL STORY W/ STUNNING NARRATORS

I have been waiting for Adam and Seth's story ever since I finished book one. I was soooo excited to see the audiobook that I one clicked it and stared it right away. OMG!! These guys exhausted me with their back and forth!!! But as emotionally exhausting as their story was, it was also emotionally rewarding!!! Their HEA is hard won and their journey is unforgettable. The heat between these two should come with a warning label!!! BEST SEX SCENES EVER!!! I wanted more!!!

Although I listened to the story, I have to say that I am totally in love with the author's writing. It's soooo real that is speaks to my soul. I loved the flavor of the dialogue. It was refreshing, and I couldn't get enough.

High praise to both Jacob Morgan (who I was already familiar with) and Benjamin Charles (who was new to me). They both performed stunningly!!! They added to the feels and heat!

I NEED MORE M/M by M. Jay Granberry!!!

I loved it

Such a great story. The narration was so good. Adams backstory was sad and frightening. I felt the tender moments and the sadness in their voices.
Benjamin Charles was a new to me narrator and I loved him. Jacob Morgan was perfect as always.
The family you make - it’s so true

The angst! Loved it! Such an emotional story!

I absolutely loved reading and listening to Exquisitely Broken by M. Jay Granberry, so when I had a chance to listen to Exquisitely Hidden I was very excited to get Adam and Seth’s story. We get teases in this first book, but please note this one can be read as a standalone, I highly recommend the first book. I loved it. Adam has a secret. One he hides well, but when Seth enters his life, can he still hide behind his secrets?

Adam and Seth had an intense chemistry. The issue? Seth came out a long time ago and is open about who he is. Adam has kept his sexuality a secret because he is afraid of how it will impact his life. Seth wants Adam but does not want to be a secret. So begins their push and pull. Adam and Seth are each as stubborn as they come. Can they find their happily-ever-after?

Narrated by Jacob Morgan and Benjamin Charles, they truly brought to life Adam and Seth and I could not stop listening. I truly loved their story so much.

Happy listening!

Exquisitely Wonderful!!!

Grab your tissues and a bottle of wine because, you’re going to need it. Exquisitely Hidden was emotionally draining. Seth and Adam were just exhausting. Adam is the lead guitarist in Sin City and still in the closet. Seth has been out of the closet since he was a teenager. There in lies the conflict for the entire book. What starts out as a one-night stand ends up becoming a relationship Adam refuses to publicly acknowledge. There are multiple break-ups because, Seth grows tired of being Adam’s dirty little secret. I get why Seth was so angry and hurt but, he willingly chose to go down that path of secrecy. Adam was honest from the start about not being out of the closet and not wanting to come out of the closet. His childhood played a large part in why he was so afraid to come out of the closet. The back and forth between these two was heartbreaking and frustrating at the same time. This book had me knee deep in my feelings. The author did a phenomenal job of portraying the sorrow and longing between Adam and Seth. I lost count how many times I yelled at my iPad for Adam to get his shyt together and for Seth to stop being so damn stupid. This was a hard fought HEA and, Lord knows, I was happy when they finally got it. Exquisitely Hidden was a great follow up to Exquisitely Broken. It sexy with just the right amount of drama. I’d definitely recommend it.

A Hot A Sin Romance With So Much Heart

Wow. This book was hot! Not just romantically (talk about some scenes to make you blush) but emotionally. It's a rock star and body guard love story. Adam is a rock star and Seth is on his security team. They have a secret romance. Adam isn't ready to come out based on past trauma. Seth is out but so patient. But eventually that patience will wear out and Adam will have make a big decision. This story starts before book one's story and that was so cool to me. I love revisiting that story through the eyes of Adam. Adam was a character I wanted to know more about. I was very satisfied in this telling. A holy smokes are Adam and Seth hot together. Not just sexually but also just all together. I wanted to scream at Adam so many times. I loved him but I hated what he was doing to Seth. This story is not just a romance. It's a story about over coming past trauma and learning it's ok to let someone else love you and take some of the control. Bottom line, always be who you are. These narrators knocked it out of the park. Their voices were exactly Seth & Adam. All around amazing book. I can't wait for more!

Beautiful M/M Romance!

Exquisitely Hidden is the second book in the A Sin City Tale Series. I recommend you to listen to this series in order. This is a beautifully written M/M Romance. Adam and Seth are wonderful characters. They share a sizzling hot chemistry. Adam had an horrible past, and his emotional rollercoaster of hot cold, and push pull, is exhausting, frustrating, and heartbreaking. Seth is caring and patient. I like his confidence, and his self-acceptance. I loved to see again Jake and Sin. Sin is a wonderful friend. The supporting characters are great. Jacob Morgan and Benjamin Charles did an outstanding job with the narration. If you like M/M Romance, you will love this one. Looking forward to read the next book in the Series, Exquisitely Yours.

Overall great!

Overall, I would give this one 4 stars. There are definitely 5 star parts woven in there, but taken as a whole it's 4 stars.

The push/pull and angst was almost too much. I started to feel bad for Seth. But given everything Adam went through in his life when he was younger, it's understandable that it took him a while to get there. But it was almost a little over-cooked, as it were.

The narration was well done, but technically there was an issue with Benjamin's recording where it would sound too tinny or something. During Jacob's chapters there is no other noise other than his voice, so it's a little off-putting when it would switch. Not horribly so, but it took a while to get past it and just delve into the story.

LOVED THIS STORY, BUT...

WHY do authors insist on writing Spanish dialogue??? They don’t know the language, then when they record, the narrators don’t pronounce the words properly. Hispanic listeners are going, WTF?!! And American listeners can’t understand anyway, so WHY?!!! It sounds so God awful!
If not for the terribly written and unnecessary Spanish, this would’ve been an overall 4. The narrators would’ve been a 5 but they should’ve done a little bit of research and learned how to pronounce the few Spanish lines they had-even if they were incorrect and poorly written.
If you’re not a Spanish speaker, you’ll love this book.

After reading the other book in this series, I really wanted Adam's story. I knew it would be angsty. It was. this was steamy as heck, broody as heck, hot as heck and at times frustrating as heck. The time line runs concurrent with the previous book but what kept me hooked was not only the push and pull between Adam and Seth but how AMAZING this was on audio. Jacob Morgan and Benjamin Charles did the damn thing right!! I loved both of their performances so much and I need more from them both. Thanks to Foreword PR and the author for allowing me to review this on audio. I volunteered to leave this unbiased review and all opinions are my own.

Adam & Seth!

After hearing Jake and Sin's story and meeting Adam, I could not wait to listen to this second story of the series. Adam and Sin are foster siblings and their relationship is special, But even their closeness never gave Adam the confidence to let her know he is interested in men. Now taken with Seth, who is open about his sexuality, Adam has choices to make. And what a story M Jay Granberry has woven around these two. I listened in one day, enjoying the push pull these two had. The confidence Seth exudes in who he is, the love he gives and frustration he feels is had me falling for him! Adam frustrated me too! He is journey to self confidence and his own happiness is heartfelt, had every emotion and I was right there with him. This is an amazing book, and I am loving the series.

Two better narrators could not have told this story. Jacob Morgan and Benjamin Charles perform each of their characters with feeling, tugging on every heart string. This team is incredible, and I hope they do more together!
