Publisher's Summary

In a future where the United States has split along party lines, Agent Matt Tennimore’s job is to get people out of the Confederated Red States, whether they’re captured special ops agents from his own country or gay CRS citizens who’ve petitioned for asylum. He never expected to have to retrieve his high school crush, aka the guy who ostracized him for being gay. Rescuing James Ayala isn’t going to be easy: he’s crawling with tracking nanos and has a cybernetic brain implant that’s granted him psychic power he isn’t sure how to control. That’s the good news. The bad? The implant is compromising James’s mental stability. So they’re on the run, avoiding surveillance by AI aircraft and hiding from enemy militia. Then James confesses he tormented Matt in high school because James wanted him. Matt can’t resist the temptation James offers, but he wants so much more than sex, assuming they ever make it home alive. Is James really a good bet when he’s got a ticking time bomb in his brain and there’s the question of how much he’s actually changed?

CHILLING VIEW OF A POSSIBLE FUTURE!!!

Where does 18% Gray rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

In the top 100.

What other book might you compare 18% Gray to and why?

Very much like J.D. Robb's "In Death" Series because both are set in a very believable future.

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

Any good narrater brings a story to life with an ability to make each character different from another. Paul Morey did very well in this endeavor.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Red and Blue; Gay and Straight. Who would have thought it would come to this?

Great blend of romance, sci-fi and action

This was a great blend of romanance sci-fi and action.
The storyline was good and although I was initially cautious of the narrator, he did a good job.
So I was not disappointed
If you are looking for lots of hot sex scenes you may not be satisfied.
Overall it was a great listen

Good story and amazing narrator

I really liked the story - it was both Funny, sweet and filled with action and had a great story Line. A little confusing in the begining due to the futuristic setting - but it might be because english isnt my first language and i do not understand some of the references to American goverment and geography. Narrator is my absolute favourit in audiable - so enjoyed listening to him tell the story. A great narrator Can ad to the story and that what he does. It is kind of telling that almost Half of my top ten is narrated by pm.

Interesting story

This book certainly speaks of "possible" and scary times ahead. The plot is good but Morey's narration is not as good as some other books. The consistent mistakes became rather annoying by the end.

set up for fun

this book was so cute all over it let you have fun with so much more then you would think was going on. I saw three key points that would set up for a nice book two, I think that they had a lot to say about how trust is a big factor in a good lover,

Paul Morey could read me anything he wanted!

What about Paul Morey’s performance did you like?

He's so good at differentiating voices. I never get confused when listening to something he narrates.

A Gay Dystopian Love Story? YES!

I began listening to this book with skepticism and a bit of apprehension. Once I got into it, and understood exactly what was going on, I couldn't stop listening! an A+ story with an A+ narration. If you don't know if you will like this book or not, buy it. You too will love it.

Nice

Nice story...first half a bit shy on the sex...but a nice build-up to a steamy second half...quite entertaining overall.

New experience was sort of fun

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I'm a Sci-Fi fan and this one has a completely different point of view. Something new to think about.

What was one of the most memorable moments of 18% Gray?

The opening scene is a real jolt.

Which scene was your favorite?

Any scene with James and the Ms. Horse.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was surprised that I enjoyed the story so much.

Any additional comments?

Definitely not for the Red State die hard!
