Tyson & Elliot's Second Chance

I really enjoyed this addition to the series. Everything that Tyson went through broke my heart and I was so happy when he escaped. Tyson and Elliot are truly a beautiful couple and I'm so glad they got a chance to be together. Elliot is incredibly patient and exactly what Tyson needs to heal and move on from his abusive past. The narrator was very good with the characters and with the story. I voluntarily reviewed a gifted copy of this audiobook.

Tyson and Elliot

Tyson's amazingly strong and very broken. He's endured a decade of abuse and has to find his way past his demons back to himself. Elliot is stoic and has trouble communicating, but he loves Ty deeply. He's not perfect, he screws up but he's so afraid of losing Ty. There are a few heart-racing moments as well as plenty of spicy ones. Terrific ending.

Audiobook: The narrator did a decent job although he seemed to be rushed and jumped from one scene to another without pausing so at times I didn't know that there was a change. While I quickly caught on it was a bit distracting. The editing needed work as there were LOTS of times where there were repeats of words, phrases, sentences or even whole paragraphs that are NOT in the book. It was disappointing that the quality wasn't what I expected and I think the author deserved better.

I wanted to love it...

I was intrigued by the idea of this story but unfortunately it fell a little flat for me. There were some repeated passages and skips in the narration so that made it hard to concentrate. It was just OK for me. I'm hoping the next book in the series pulls me in.

enjoyed it

Good start to introduce a new series. The story addresses such an important issue of domestic abuse that I would have liked to see more of Ty's road to recovery.

Max Christian did a reasonable job of narrating the book. There were a couple of times I couldn't tell which character was speaking and they sounded younger that I would have expected but it's an acceptable performance.

There were a couple of instances with editing issues (repeated text), although I am not sure if this is with the manuscript or the narration.

Overall though, 'Made for You' has good pacing and interesting characters and I would happily listen to it again.

So much emotions

This audiobook broke my heart. I hate hearing of anyone going through domestic violence, and to think Ty went through it for ten years. Really broke my heart, I just want to hug him and never let go while at the same time murder Max. I'm happy he found his friends and family again and was able to heal. Him and Elliot was truly made for each other. I loved watching them fall in love again, seeing Ty heal and learn to be happy again. J P Oliver did this story theme justice and I enjoyed it. First time listening to Max Christian and he was ok mostly, however he did give each MC their own voice and that was distracting sometimes not knowing who was talking. I was given this audiobook by the Author and voluntarily left this review

So many feels!

Made For You by JP Oliver is the first book in the For You series and this one is one of those emotional ones you don’t forget. Any kind of abuse in relationships are the toughest to break free from but that’s what happens to Ty after he lands in the hospital by the hands of his abusive and possessive boyfriend Max. He barely escapes the Denver hospital when he’s discovered off the side of the road weeks later and wakes up in his hometown. What should be relief and triumph, Ty realizes he has a long way to fully recover from the horrific ordeal he’s endured in the last 10 years. With the help from his brother and friends he was forced to cut ties with, Ty slowly goes back so some kind of normal. What he doesn’t expect is the strong feeling of want and need from Eli, his childhood best friend and crush. Eli always cared about Ty, so when he finds out all the horrid details, he’s determined to build Ty up and love him hard. As their emotions start to surface and they finally get together, it’s only when Ty’s past comes back and threatens his new life. This is a first Max Christian listen for me and he did good. I’d like to hear more from him and see his narration progress. This isn’t my first JP Oliver book and it won’t be my last! 4.5 stars for Made For You by JP Oliver. Happy listening all!

An Ok Beginning.

First let me state that I'm a huge fan of JPO, and have listened to many books, and have enjoyed them thoroughly. I enjoyed T & E story it was cute, but not as strong as some of JPO other books. I think I would have really enjoyed listening to it more if Max Christian would have given the main characters different voices. To me T & E sounds the same + like little boys. No disrespect to to him. I just couldn't connect to them fully. But, as the fan that I am, I will continue with book2.

Short but packed with all the right elements

I enjoyed this listen. It was a nice second chance romance. The characters are interesting and you want to know more about these strong men that share a bond of friendship.

The topic of spousal or partner abuse can never be talked about enough in my eyes. This book showcases how abuse can not only slowly kill you but tear you down mentally as well. I did like how we saw Tyson's personality evolve throughout the book. Coming back from an abusive situation can be a long road. We see how, in this story, having a good support system can go a long way as far as getting your life back after leaving that kind of toxic relationship.

The narrator was good as well. There was definitely voice distinction. I only had a small issue with the recording. I am not sure of it was the narrator or the way the book was edited. There was a chapter that repeated itself as well as sometimes sentences would be reread in error. It did not take from the story, though. It did kind of throw me for a quick minute though.

They were made for each other.

I listened to the audio book for 'Made For You' and I felt like there were some editing issues with the audio or the narrator didn't effectively convey thoughts and speaking out loud. But I did enjoy how he voiced the characters. I wish he was used in the later audio books, I'll get more unto that with the other reviews. The story itself was enjoyable. Tyson and Eli were made for each other. 3.5 stars.

TRUE FRIENDS AND LOVERS ARE PRICELESS

This story made me feel wiped out and anxious. I know lots of abused people and to read just some of the things that Ty went through made my heart ache. The fact that he had a support system, that he didn’t think he did, made things much easier for him. I was elated that Elliot, Eli, was still there for him after ten years of everyone wondering what had happened to him. It made me feel good to know that his friends were there to help him overcome most of his insecurities. When he stood up to Maxwell, my heart cheered. The stories make me wonder why most people, no matter what they fear, won’t say how they feel about someone until it’s almost too late.

The narrator did a great job on some of the character’s voices; especially the elderly characters. It was hard for me to distinguish who was talking with the younger males.

3.5 stars

There is nothing wrong with this story, but there is also nothing new about it either. I felt like I had read a similar story a couple of times before. Nevertheless, it is well written and Tyson (Ty) and Eli are both likeable main characters who fit well together.

Max Christian narrates clearly, but quite quickly. Paragraph breaks and character POV changes aren't always clear and I had a job sometimes figuring out whether Ty or Eli was speaking. I also feel a bit more editing would be helpful as a few times words were repeated.

Wonderful

I loved it listening to this book, Tyson and Eli were inseparable while they grew up but they lost contact after college. When Tyson returns to Harlan in a sorry state, all Eli wants to do is protect him.
