Publisher's Summary

With his college graduation gown expertly pitched into the trash, Justin Akron is ready for the road trip he planned with his best friend, Landry, and ready for one last summer of escape from his mother's controlling grip. Climbing into the Winnebago his father left him, they set out across America in search of the sites his father had captured through the lens of his Nikon.

As an aspiring photographer, Justin can think of no better way to honor his father's memory than to scatter his ashes at the sites he held sacred, and there's no one Justin would rather share the experience with more than Landry. But Justin knows that he can't escape forever. Eventually, he'll have to return home and join his mother's Senate campaign. Nor can he escape the truth of who he is - and the fact that he's in love with his out-and-proud travel companion.

Contains mature themes.

Trust The Focus

ok... I am going to try and put aside my personal feelings for Justin the Jerk to write a review about the actual book. LOL. But man does he make me so flipping Angry during like 70% off this book. I just want to Hug Landry, and tell him to run every time Justin opens his mouth and speaks, He treats Landry like crap. But then thinking about it.. Justin is just taking out the horrible feelings he has about himself on Landry, and Landry ends up getting the brunt of his anger. My feelings for Justin aside; this book was really good, Megan did a great job on the subject and progression of feelings and story. The entire book was really believable like it totally could have happened in real life. Like we were actually following along with the real story of two boys driving around to different places to spread the ashes of their father. I mean I am sure someone somewhere has done this.
Audio - I really liked Marcs narration. There is just something about his voice I really just like listening to. He made these characters story come to life with the emotions thrown in.

okay but I was not too keen on the mc

Any additional comments?

I sort of enjoyed this, but was also annoyed by a few things. Since it’s in the romance package I’m going to give the series another chance, but I would probably not if I was to pay a credit for the next book.
The mc annoyed me somewhat. I didn’t really get his over the top explosions. I know there were some explanations, but perhaps he is just too different from me, I just did not get him at all.
I’m sorry to say that the narrations grated my nerves a bit too. It felt like the words were drawn out and pronounced too carefully. Not sure I’m making sense.
But in conclusion there were good parts and annoying parts.

Awesome

This is by far the best book I have ever read! When I first started it I wasn’t sure about it but by the end i had experienced so many emotions that it will go down as my all time favorite

Too long and the Justin is a jerk

I hated Justin. Landon was a sweetheart and no way deserved to be treated the way Justin treated him regardless of the circumstances. Not a fan of the narrator. story was too long and had too much unnecessary detail. I was happy to have it end.

Tamer than I expected

Sweet friends to lovers story. Well written but very tame- so if you are looking for more sweet than sexy you will like this audiobook. Narrator was okay.

Perfect!

This version of the book was just as perfect as the written one, the performance was incredible and it really helped me get into the story really fast.

this is one of my favorite books and I'm so glad that I get to listen to it over and over again.

Wonderful story, quality audio

The story is wonderful. The quality of the narration, different voices, appropriate accents, and correct pronunciation, is great. But I don't love the sound of the narrator's voice, and I particularly don't love it for these characters. It's definitely worth listening to, but I never was able to engage completely like I am when the voice fits. Perhaps the voice fits perfectly for others however, and I hope that is so.

Bad story writing!

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

There is way too much emotion in every sentence.

Any additional comments?

How can you write a book about a road trip and still make it boring!

I like Winnebagos

Just your average M/M Romance without too many horrible gaffes. If roads trips and happy times suit you this is what Trust The Focus is all about with the obligatory sex and happily ever after.
