Publisher's Summary

"Coming home from work to find my boyfriend banging our hairy, married landlord - in our bed - was bad enough. Discovering Jamie had also cleaned out my bank accounts made it officially the worst day of my life. I think I can be forgiven for wanting revenge, even if a few little laws (and possibly Jamie's nose) got bent in the process.

"Fortunately, the law is on my side in the form of my oldest friend, Tony Gervase. I've tried to deny my attraction to the sexy trooper for years. After all, he made it clear long ago that he wasn't interested in me that way. But if the hot encounter in his kitchen is any indication, he is now. At least the day is ending a whole lot better than it began....

"But the morning after, the Jamie situation goes from bad to seriously messed up. The jerk's in more trouble than I could have imagined. And as it turns out, I don't know Tony as well as I thought I did, either."

    Story
    "Funny but I didn't like one of the voices"

    **3.5 stars**

    I think I would have liked this better on my Kindle and rated it a solid 4 stars instead of 3.5 stars. This was my first audiobook and I'm not completely sold on it. Most of my friends loved this narration. I think the narrator did a great job except for the voice of Tony, which kiiiillllleeeeddd me. He sounded like a constipated Tony Soprano, and I couldn't feel much for him as a character because I hated the voice so much.

    This book had many things that I like. It was funny, it was paced well, and it had a lot of action. It confirmed that L.B. Gregg is an author to watch for me. However, I didn't like how the romance part of the book went down. I didn't really get why either of them didn't make a move until now, and I certainly didn't feel the love from them. I wanted more development of their romantic relationship. Also, Mark, who I thought was really funny and endearing, bordered on too-stupid-to-live some of the time. I honestly thought he was going to get his butt killed for most of the story. Silly man.

    Story
    "Not Bad"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I would say that yes, the majority of the time I spent listening to this book was worth it. Why? Because it had a good blend of a strong male who wasn't DOMineering.


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

    That Mark saved his sorry ex. The least interesting were some of the accents.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I enjoy accents, just not this one...it was like I enjoyed some of the accent but then there were times when I was just like 'uh no'.


    Did Men of Smithfield: Mark and Tony inspire you to do anything?

    Reminded me that I need to make sure I KNOW who I am dealing with.

    Story
    "Gobsmacked - In a Good Way"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Men of Smithfield: Mark and Tony to be better than the print version?

    Yes. I read this story a couple of years ago when it was entitled "Gobsmacked". It was the first story I read by Mrs. Gregg and I enjoyed it so much, I purchased others. I never could have imagined the characterizations in my head as interpreted by the narrator.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was hilarious and I could see myself reacting in many of the same ways as Mark. The bible incident at the church had me guffawing out loud. Good thing I was at home alone and not at work while listening.


    Have you listened to any of Shannon Gunn’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was the first book that I actually listened to that Mr. Gunn narrated, but not the first one I purchased. I love his narrative skills. He has a way with accents and he emotes very well. I hope to hear a lot more from him.


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

    Completely Gobsmacked would do it justice. It describes perfectly the emotions Mark felt during the horrific chain of events before his HEA.


    Any additional comments?

    Hurry and release the rest of the series!

    "Funny! Gobsmacked!!"

    This is a great m/m romance... the whole gobsmacked with the bible was too funny!! I really enjoyed the story and the relationship between Mark and Tony... well worth a buy or credit...

    Narration was pretty good... I am fan of Gunn after listening to Try and Tempt by Ella Frank... this is his older work b/c Gunn has gotten way better.. so kudos to Gunn!

    Story
    "Very Funny"
    What did you love best about Men of Smithfield: Mark and Tony?

    I loved the sarcastic humor of the story. The MCs are very endearing. The narrator was really great as Mark, not as great as Tony, but still good. The story was OK, about average as a predicable romance, could have been better.


    Which character – as performed by Shannon Gunn – was your favorite?

    Mark, easily Mark. He made me laugh out loud.


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

    Yes I did


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this book in the audio format. Strangely this is one of those rare occasions where I don't think I would have liked the printed version better. The narrator was funny as hell and I found myself laughing out loud. So fair warning if you listen to it in public.

    "Definitely worth the money"

    This was a new to me author, so I had low to no expectations going into this, since it was such a bargain! This book made me a fan. It's short and fun. I thought the narrator was great. I loved his Italian cop, Tony, and he perfectly captured the loveble but maddening nature of Mark. I definitely recommend it if you're looking for a good m/m romance.

    The story was good and the narration was better. I feel it would have been better with more character development. But otherwise it was an ok book.

    Story
    "Too stupid to live"

    Tony of Mark and Tony is an intelligent, sweet, hot cop. Mark of Mark and Tony is childish and impulsive and no way these two are a love match. Mark makes so many irresponsible decisions throughout this story from beginning to end that it's impossible to find him attractive. Shannon Gunn is awesome as usual. But skip this one. One stupid protagonist wrecks the whole thing. At least it did for me.

    "Hilarious!!!!"

    First off, a good narrator can make or break an audio book and I have to say this narrator is awesome!!! I laughed throughout this whole book. When I need a good laugh I go back and listen too this book. Second, the narrator wouldn't do such a good job without good material. Good job to both the author and the narrator!!

    Story
    "A quirky turmoil of issues and the past catches up"
    Would you listen to Men of Smithfield: Mark and Tony again? Why?

    It was good but no, I wouldn't listen to it again as there's many more titles that want to be heard.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mark (the protagonist) because he can be quite funny and reckless, which is an interesting combo.


    What about Shannon Gunn’s performance did you like?

    I liked how some parts where there's a funny remark that he takes the effort to make it so.


    Any additional comments?

    I have to proclaim that I enjoyed this Men of Smithfields book compared to Men of Smithfields: Seth and David. This book had a story that was explored. Behaviour that is more realistic to the characters and it didn't close of issues in the plot in a quick scene. I was dreading to listen to this because of my previous listen but I'm glad I did.
