Publisher's Summary

This isn't a coming out story. Nor is it the tale of a lonely heart-seeking companionship. This is about how I learned to fight.

My name is Nathaniel Courtney, and I m a survivor. I didn't let the cruelty of others wear me down, and I've weathered the more subtle hardships of the heart. Love is a Trojan horse, slipping past your guard and leaving you ransacked and vulnerable. I emerged from that war not unscathed but as a new man. The only mistake I ever made was letting the right guy get away. Now I've got one more chance. This is the final battle, because if I fail now...I won't. You'll see. Just listen to my story, Kelly Phillips, and when I'm done, please don t walk away. Take this weary soldier into your arms so we can find peace together.

Something Like Thunder is the sixth book in the ongoing Something Like... series, shedding light on past events while leading the listener toward an exciting new future.

Something Like Over

I started reading Jaybell about three or four years ago and since then I have read everything that he has now said to say there's nothing more to pick from.
I have truly enjoyed the series and look forward to anything new that may be added under Jay's name I also. I also hope that the rumors that I have heard about a film being made out of one of the original books is true. I am keeping my eyes open for that.

Something Like.....Everything!!!!

After 6 books, I have ridden a wave of all emotions imaginable. As I'm writing this, I still have watery eyes. Jay bell does an amazing job of making you fall in love with his characters, even if your first impression of them was hate. A longing of what most of these characters have, love, is what rebounds in your heart as you listen to his stories.

When I first met Kelly, back in book 4, I couldn't stand him, thinking he was a queeny snob, the type of gay man I can't stand. Then I heard his story...and I fell in love. Same can be said for Nathaniel. At first he was a cold hearted man who seemed distant, but eventually thawed when the one thing he wanted was right in front of him. Both characters made you hate them, love them, get irritated with them, be sad for them then eventually fall in love with them and what they have...each other.

I only hope that Mr. Bell continues their story, and others in the series, so we can continue our roller coaster of emotions until it ends (hopefully never) with a high and fulfilling note.

Mr. Bell has skyrocketed to the top of my favorites list with his writing style and his books.

Now....to continue the adventure with the next book. Won't you join me?

Another great listen

Ok....first off... in the past 5 books Marcelo has by far become my favorite charcter and I have to say hearing his character in Kevin R. Free's makes him that much better!! By far one of the most entertaining charcters....any chance of him getting his own spin off book of how he came to be?

But back to Nathaniel....I love his story and him with Kelly. I like that this story took a darker turn then previous books with taking on abuse. None the less, as always...I love this series.

I can't get enough of these!

I am hooked past my own will. It is as if these books are now a part of my life and I have to keep going to keep living.

Thank you so much for the wonderful stories. You are responsible for so many emotions that I have experienced the last few weeks since my discover of these books. I look forward to more!

My Favorite thus far

Any additional comments?

1. Nathaniel is HOT AS F! (subjective lol but still). I LOVED his story line. I kinda wish that he and Tim did a little something but then decided to just be friends. My anticipation was going wild at the thought of those two studs getting together. I'm happy that he and Kelly ended up together. They are a good match!

Another viewpoint of the same story,

Familiar characters get additional opportunities to interact with the characters from the previous 6 books, filling out what is known with new information about the events of the other books, while allowing a deeper look at some of them. The reactions and emotions build until most of the pieces fit together, leaving the reader wanting to finish this adventure. And another book awaits as the final installment in book 7.

Love Nathaniel's story. Second time listening!

I just listened to the entire book series for a second time and it was just as good if not better than the first. I love Nathaniel's and Kelly's story. This entire series is so wonderful and I'd recommend it to anyone. It generates tears at some point and many many smiles at others. Thanks Jay Bell for a great book and Kevin R Free is such a great narrator.

Getting a bit stale

How many times can I listen to the same story. I found myself wanting to fast forward through the parts I have heard at least 4 times now. Don't get me wrong it filled in some gaps but only a couple.
I don't do spoilers so can't say to much. But I accept he was emotionally damage but can someone really be so stupid...

The last couple of chapters where good, as was the 'shock discovery' though as soon as I heard the name Star, I sort of expected something.

My one thought.. If victor had known maybe things for him would have been different ..
