Publisher's Summary

How does a guy who vowed not to trust another man ever again end up falling for not one, but two men?

Some people might look down on being an adult star, but this job has been my salvation. It’s the only one that didn’t turn me away when learning about my criminal record.

After being screwed over by my ex, I vowed to never let another man close, but when my sweet, nerdy friend Mason asks for my help improving his skills in the bedroom, I can’t resist.

And then there’s my gorgeous yet grumpy parole officer who has made it his mission to save me. They both seem determined to test my resolve, and it’s getting harder and harder to remind myself why it’s so dangerous to trust. 

Heart is an MMM romance and the third book in the sexy, emotional Ballsy Boys series. It can be listened to as a stand-alone, but it’s more fun listening the series in order. Contains one dorky nerd, a sexy parole officer, and a man weighed down by his past who learns he’s worthy to be loved.

Three’s Company

If you’ve read/listened to the previous books in the series you know you’re going to get all the feels and hot sexy times three very different men fall for each other. But really liked about this book was how real it was in addressing issues of the justice system and challenges faced by people that have served time in prison.

Perfect MMM Throuple!

I loved Heart’s story of finding love when feeling unlovable. Heart is a wrongly convicted felon who is helping his nerdy best friend Mason find his sexual confidence while managing his unwanted feelings for is PO Lucky. Where I thought Heart was going to be the sole focus with the most character development, the authors did an incredible job in developing all 3 characters to people you want to root for. I absolutely loved Kenneth Obi’s narration. He is quickly becoming one of my favorite narrators from his performance on this series! Wonderful all around!

Not my favorite

Good series. And we needed Hearts story for continuity. But this was not my favorite. And it was hard to juggle three pov.
Well narrated. Even if it felt like some of the voices changed half way through the book.

porn with heart

this series is not to be missed. vivid writing made it almost seem real and the voicework only added to the enjoyment. I was amazed that each character was so distinctive just based on voices.

This is how you write a throuple!

So many times people get this wrong. This is officially in my top 5 for multiple partner books. Communication is everything in a poly relationship and even with each character bringing their own baggage (as all relationships do) the way they navigated and real expression was perfect. Thoroughly enjoyable. I know I haven’t read all the Ballsy Boys books yet but this is officially my favorite.

Great MMM option

Heart is one of my favorite books from the BB series, so I was anxiously awaiting the audiobook. I was not disappointed.
Heart, Mason, and Lucky’s relationship shows how Phoenix and Neuhold can demonstrate beautiful poly partnership.

Obi did a great job bring the characters, feels, and heat to life. I’m sure it can be difficult keeping track of the various voices in a series and Kenneth does a great job keeping the characters identifiable. Kenneth Obi’s voices for awkward guys are some of my favorites, and I loved his version of Mason.

If you are looking for a steamy MMM story with a great HEA, I highly recommend this one.

Heart has my heart

I love all the Ballsy Boys, but Heart has a special place in my, well, heart. One of my favorite MMM books, Heart manages to be both salty and sweet. The character himself is very well written and has a lot of grit while still managing to be vulnerable – not an easy feat to pull off. Lucky and Mason hold their roles while also managing to be just the right side of three-dimensional. Ballsy Boys is a series about characters who work in a porn studio (so, yeah, the sexy times are hot in these), but it’s really so much more. It’s about the characters behind the job, and really very little of this one takes place in the studio. One of the best scenes does happen at the studio...where they’re all sitting around a table and…well let’s just say my heart strings were involved. (I could pun all day on this book title.) It’s a guaranteed HEA, or HEAsss.

As for the narration on this one—loved it. Heart’s voice was On Point, and the distinctions between the three main characters was solid in both tone and cadence, maybe the best I’ve heard in his work. I love Kenneth Obi’s pacing and he absolutely did justice to one of my favorite books.

surprising low angst

The sweet tale of love between a geek, a porn star, and his parole officer - a truly unusual trio, each of whom brings his own baggage to the triad. Each pairing meets separately, and each man is torn between the other two until they realize they don't have to choose...they just have to convince everyone they belong together.

Amazing!!

This series is fantastic and it’s getting better and better! I loved Heart’s story. It was steamy and sweet and heartbreaking at times. Heart, Mason and Lucky were perfect together and I was rooting for them from the beginning.
I loved the narrator, he made the story come to life and the voices for each character were perfect.

as great as the ebook

The story is always full stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook. I can't listen to an audiobook without knowing the book, that's not possible for me.

The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. Kenneth Obi is one of the top 5 narrators (so far) for me, I can listen without break and have no problems to follow. I'm just not yet finish with the book, but I listen enough to give a review.

PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings:

5* - very very good
it's like an A+

4* - very good and will be often re-listening
it's like an A

3* - it's more then a one-time-listening.
it's like a B

Pure MMM yumminess

Heart is book 3 in the Ballsy Boys series by K.M. Neuhold and Nora Phoenix and narrated by Kenneth Obi. This is 5 stars of MMM perfection. I loved Heart and Mason in the previous books, and I was always curious about his back story. The fact that his PO was Lucky is pretty much icing on the cake. The three main characters all have great personalities and also great chemistry both alone and together, which is why I think I felt so drawn to all of them. Lucky is the classic military man, Heart is the vulnerable one with a chip on his shoulder and Mason is sort of a perfect mix of both of them (extremely smart and focused, yet also guarded). The narration is also complimentary to the story, because those aspects of the characters, were noticeable as soon as their voices came to life. I’ve said it many times, but one of the reasons I enjoy Kenneth’s narration so much is that he surely becomes a part of the story. His emotion, voicework and overall sound quality make for a rich and enjoyable listen that truly is reminiscent of a movie.

If you enjoy MMM romance, with low angst and plenty of smoking hot scenes, then I highly recommend you listen to this ASAP!

Heart just steels your heart

This was my introduction to the Ballsy boys series and I fell in love with them. Even though m/m/m romances aren't my favorite, I really loved this story. It was sweet, but not overly so, very well written. They take you along on their journey to love.
The narrator did a great job bringing Heart, Mason and Lucky to life.
This story can be read as a standalone but I would have preferred to have read them in order. It's just more fun that way. But I never was left wondering what was going on because I hadn't read the fist two books yet.

Heart and Mason and Lucky...oh my!!!

Heart has had a bad time in the past and fears trusting thanks to his ex.
Mason is awkward and shy and thanks to his ex thinks he sucks in the bedroom.
Lucky likes things in order, so how is he going to cope when not one but two men come into his life?

I loved the interactions between all 3 main characters. Both Heart and Mason have issues that make them feel unlovable and that they’re going to be the third wheel in the relationship. They each help the other, along with Lucky, to realise there is a place for them and that is all 3 of them together.

Sometimes with books with multiple POVs narrators can struggle to make the characters distinct. Not so with the vocal talents of Kenneth Obi. This man is an amazing narrator that manages to keep all the characters distinct and individual as well as being engaging.

Loved it!

I feel like with each book it gets better and better but heart mason and lucky are so far my favorites ! Looking forward to when the rest release on audio. As always an amazing performance by Kenneth Obi! I forget it’s only one person doing the audio every character is distinct and the voices fit so well with the characters.
