Publisher's Summary

Rod Nelson is used to being someone's good time, and that's fine with him. Spending his days at his adult toy store, Rods-N-Ends, he never knows who he'll meet. The second Landon Harrison walks in, he has Rod's full attention. It seems as if Landon wants him too, so why won't the man jump in the sack with him already?

Landon never thought he'd return home to the town where memories lurk around every corner. He has to admit, Rod makes the adjustment a lot easier. He keeps Landon laughing. Despite the fierce attraction between them, he's not willing to risk his newfound friendship to get laid.

Neither man wants something serious, but the more they're together, the harder it is to keep their hands to themselves, until eventually they stop trying.

But flings between friends are never simple, and as they attempt to shift gears, diving into their first relationship, they're slammed with setbacks. If they want to truly move forward, before they hit the open road together, they're going to have to let go of a past that could make them crash and burn.

Contains mature themes.

take a chance

If you could sum up Shifting Gears in three words, what would they be?

loving, Passionate/sexy

What other book might you compare Shifting Gears to and why?

don't really want to compare because yes some of the previous characters from another story are used..the fact is Landon and Rod are there own men with there own story

What about Sean Crisden’s performance did you like?

the way that he always lets u know who he is, he never makes u think you will not know who is speaking as

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

i laughed and I cried but I also related soon much to there story and because of that I knew these guys

Any additional comments?

I hope Mr Hart keeps writing because his passion and his love are fantastic and he is one hell of a story teller

Great story, annoying narration

I love the simple, beautiful story, but the narrator's fake, squeaky attempt at sounding feminine when reading the lines of the women (and the bottom!) annoys the hell out of me.

Good story

I enjoyed the story. I've pretty much loved all the Riley Hart books. But I was turned off by the way Sean Crisden chose to give voice to Rod. High pitched, loud and nasally. Nothing sexy about that. But still, the story is a good one and I did listen to the entire thing.

Don't love the reader, but a great series

Any additional comments?

The reading of Rod's voice is annoying, and makes it hard to like the character

Great book!

I’ve listened to this book twice and it was even better the second time! Rod and Landon find something in each other they thought they could never have- Love. Sweet hot read! Narration was great too.

Story was lacking.

I think I would have enjoyed this book more had I not listened to the audiobook and read it instead. I've listened to other works by Sean Crisden and am a fan of his. However, his choice of voice for Rod was high, nasally and sounded like a boy going through puberty. This only helped to make his character even more unappealing. His representation of Landon, however, worked for me.

I also dislike the narrator's choice of voice for mature women in this book. Not his finest work.

Great Read

Any additional comments?

A really lovely story, with a great original plot. I enjoyed it immensely. The characters' motivations were fascinating and relatable, making this a read I was easily swept up in.

Cute story

Sweet story. I love that although it was centered around Landon and Rod, we got to see Bryce and Nick.

Loved it!

Although it's a standalone, it was nice to catch up with Nick and Bryce from Crossroads.
Rod is funny, but a little damaged and Landon, although a little uptight at first, loosened up as the story progressed. The narration was good, although I wasn't fond of Rod's voice (also it was quite similar to Landon's mum). Overall, I would listen again.
