It started with an accidental click...but where will it end?
Desperate to turn in a paper, Adam borrows his roommate's computer and mistakenly opens a folder that contains Josh's collection of porn. Adam had no idea that his jock roommate was gay - and into leashes, paddles, and domination. And Adam, an inexperienced virgin who's only ever kissed one guy, is surprised to find himself curious about submitting....
Josh can't believe that his roommate discovered his spank bank - and he can't believe that Adam is so turned on by the thought of giving up control to someone. Taking a chance, he offers to look through the photos with Adam...and maybe try acting some of them out.
Night after night, the boys delve into their darkest fantasies of domination and submission. And as lust and experimentation grow into the promise of something deeper, Adam must decide if he's brave enough to tell Josh how he feels.
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I don't think so. The book is a bit simplistic, but when I saw that Mr. Gunn was narrating it, I automatically bought it. He's one of my go to narrators.
If you’ve listened to books by Lana McGregor before, how does this one compare?
What aspect of Shannon Gunn’s performance would you have changed?
This time around I could barely tolerate his characterizations. The voices were quite grating and nothing like he usually does. Doesn't seem like he was interested in what he was reading. I love his other work though.
Could you see His Roommate's Pleasure being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
Any additional comments?
If you want to hear better from Mr. Gunn, try listening to the L. B. Gregg stories that he narrates. I won't totally give up on this author, but will choose more carefully next time.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Yes, it was diverting and fun to listen to.
Which character – as performed by Shannon Gunn – was your favorite?
Adam.I thought his voice and demeanor was perfect for a young college guy. Josh sounded too rough and condescending, even though what he said was not. That made his character a bit discordant.<br/>
Do you think His Roommate's Pleasure needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
It is not necessary, but it would still be fun to follow their future.
Any additional comments?
Really nice listen overall, if you like that kind of thing. It is quite explicit, and I understand not everybody is open to that. I thought it was well worth the money.

I have this in book format... which I loved.. and I am so glad to see it in audible. I scooped it up right away. The story had so much more depth when listening than reading on my own. I loved it. This was my first Gunn narration, he was ok. I prefer other male narrators over him, but he did an ok job. I loved the story... it wasn't nothing too deep, simply roommate realizing they have things in common and building a relationship onto that. This is m/m romance. A good addition for audible.

The book is amazing--very hot and sweet. What bothered me was the narrator's voice for Josh. Adam's voice was sweet, but Josh's voice sounded like a dirty old man. Definitely the wrong choice of register for me, I'm afraid. Because of that, I had problems getting into the story. Otherwise it would've been a five star review.
Audio: Negative 5 stars? Run, screaming, in the other direction from this audio! This was, without a doubt, the worst audio I've ever listened to. The narrator, who had a good voice (?) took a sweet, coming of age/discovery story and made it nasty (in the worst way). His voice for Josh sounded like every stand up's voice for trump. Even if that wasn't the visual that came up, it was just awful in every way possible. *shudders*
The book: 4 stars, sweet, a little heavy on the smexy times, but appropriate for the age, and the fact that both MCs were discovering themselves.
Let me start with the narration - I've listen to Shannon Gunns narration before and Loved It. With This book... Not So Much. The voice for Josh just sounds so funny to me, I'm not sure what he was trying to achieve with Josh's voice, but I just couldn't get into it. lol.
The Book - Ive read it before. The two roommates are trying to figure out what they both like and are trying to figure it out together. Its alright for a short read with some Steamy BDSM sex aspects thrown in.
I read this story on my kindle a long time ago and really liked it. I think Lana did a really good job of showing BDSM positively. And I really liked both Josh and Adam.
And overall, the narration was actually great. Except for Josh's voice. It was so totally obnoxious. Mr Gunn did a great job at the other voices and did emotions and passion really well. Because of that, I might try another book he's narrated.
If you like MM romance with BDSM elements, this is a good story. If you try the audio and can't get through it, read it yourself. It's worth it.
I've read the Kindle version many times and absolutely loved it. Top three m/m for a number of reasons, mainly because of the innocence and honesty of Adam. Super sexy as well.
Gunn did great as Adam and though his voice may be better suited for a mystery or thriller it still worked for me. Although the choice to give Josh a sort-of surfer with a sort-of speech impediment voice was very odd and gave me some major giggles.
