Publisher's Summary

The nation as we know it is a thing of the past. With the male species on the verge of extinction, a society called the End Men is formed to save the world. Folsom Donahue is one of 12 men whose sole purpose is to repopulate the Regions. The endless days spent having sex with strangers leaves Folsom with an emptiness no amount of women, money, or status can fill.

Until Gwen.

Gwen has wanted a child for as long as she can remember, but when she finally gets a chance to have her own, she uncovers a long-hidden truth. The injustice she sees moves her to help save the men whom no one else believes need saving.

A forbidden love, grown in a time of despair, ignites a revolution. Folsom and Gwen, torn between their love for each other and their sense of duty, must make a choice. But some will stop at nothing to destroy them.

You saw me...and my boots

Audiobook Folsom book 1 in the End Of Men series.
Story:
An outbreak killed off most of the male population leaving only a few to help repopulate the new world. Once a man’s world now a woman’s world. Twelve virile men populate the regions. Folsom was the first man to become an End Man and he wants out.

Overall:
It’s a very sexual driven story. Picture the Hunger Games of lottery winners being chosen to have sex with an End Man in hopes of a conceiving. With the male population wiped out, the regions are controlled by governor who decides where the End Men live.
It definitely gives you food for thought to consider this type of reality. Both authors factored in every possible scenario. They played devils advocate to both sides giving the pros and cons of this situation.

This was a revisit. I read this book upon release and loved it so much I had to add the audiobook. I prefer to purchase audiobooks from a select few narrators whom have the performance skills down. But I didn’t let that deter me this time.

Narrators:
This is a dual performance with dual points of view. Jennifer Mack is the female performer for Gwen’s character. While it’s part of Jennifer’s job to perform all the characters within her chapter I don’t mind her voice or tone when performing the other voices. However, Alexander Candese is the other performer in this story and I can’t get his voice and tone to settle in mind. He isn’t who I envisioned Folsom sounding like. I definitely was disappointed at the way he performed the female voices. Men suck trying to perform a softer sound. It sounds terrible.

Overall:
Usually an Audiobook enhances my experience after having read it prior to the release of the audiobook. In this case, I’m disappointed by the performance of both narrators. Neither blew me away. In fact, listening to Alexander performing female voices annoyed me.

Loved this book

The future has been reimagined in this amazing book, and men are on the verge of becoming extinct. The few who are left are virtually slaves, their role in society to produce children.
It’s unthinkable for romance to exist in this world. But the moment Gwen and Folsom meet is the beginning of not only a love story, but a rebellion. Full of intrigue, courage and questions this book was hard to put down. Not to mention the romance. Serious sparks!
The narrators are awesome and add an extra dimension to this book. I loved it. Highly recommend.
