Publisher's Summary

Meet the six men of the Personal series. 

In Making it Personal, Blake Davis, in-the-closet CEO of Trinity Publishing, celebrates his 30th birthday by hiring an escort - only to have him turn up the next day to be interviewed as Blake’s PA. It’s about to get a lot hotter in Blake’s office.... 

Personal Changes is the story of Rick, who decides he’s had enough of being casual - he’s looking for love - and he finds it in the shape of Angelo. Unfortunately, Angelo’s traditional Italian family isn’t too happy to learn he’s gay. 

In More than Personal, it’s Will’s birthday and Blake has something special planned. However, their surrogate has news that might change all that. 

In Personal Secrets, Blake’s office manager, Ed, a brash, loud Cockney bear, finally finds the person who completes him. The only thing he hadn’t anticipated was that it would be a guy...

In Strictly Personal, Colin plans a special Valentine’s Day weekend in Manchester, only things don’t go according to plan. 

Personal Challenges sees all three couples facing up to difficult times. They’re going to need one another in the coming months.

Great Series, Lovely Characters.

I love reading this as a collection and the interaction throughout the series of the three couples. It was a bit long, and I might not have finished it had I needed to purchase each book separately. I do have other favorites among the author’s works, but these were wonderful characters. I am sad to say I am slightly disappointed in the narrator. Yes, the accents are good and the characters are distinct. At least until it comes to the steamy scenes, when all the men seem to sound hoarse and pained in the same manner. I also found the women’s voices to be rather annoying. Still, the identifiable character narration makes it a quite decent job overall. All in all, well worth the listen! It will not be on my continual re-listen list, but it was a very enjoyable story from one of my favorite authors of late.

Reccomend

I'm happy I got these books as a box set, I don't think I could have stand waiting for one book at a time. Each book has that ending that needs a following up... not quite a cliffhanger, but an incomplete ending. so it's best to get the boxset. Thank you very much author for your work, your character's words...I enjoyed this boxset.

It Is Personal

Overall this is a great series and each story builds upon the happenings of the previous books so it really should be read in order. I listened to the audio version and it was very well done especially with so many characters that interact with each other. Making It Personal - Will and Blake - This story was so dramatic at times. There was the unusually first meeting and the next day surprise. These men seem so well suited to each other but fear can do so much to a person. It was amazing that they survived to finally get it together. Personal Changes Rick and Angelo - This story had some really dramatic moments in both thing involving Rick and Angelo separately and these individual events impact them as a couple. I love how supportive Blake and Will are as Rick navigates his issues. It is sad how family can make a life so hard. More Than Personal - Will and Blake - I love this view of Blake and Will further along in their life together. There are some tender moments and a wonderful new beginning for them. Personal Secrets Ed and Collin - Poor Ed is out of him comfort zone but luckily he has good friends that will step in with advise. I like how Collin is patient but not willing to settle for less than he wants. Two strong men who have to decide whether to risk it. Strictly Personal - Poor Ed and Collin there is so much love and humor in a romantic weekend that is full of bumps along the way home. Personal Challenges - This one is the most personal because everyone is involved in different areas in their lives that will take their strength and their relationship with the partner to get them through. I like how we got to see all the couple and that each faced their own unique challenge. There are some wonderful surprises along the way in this story.

a great series

This is a beautifully written amazing series with all 6 books together. 3 couples, Blake and Will, Rick and Angelo, and Colin and Ed, all find love and their happy endings through the struggles and emotions of life. I love following them on their journeys and I love how the characters move around the stories. I love how the men are there for each other no matter what, like a family. It maybe long but it's so worth the listen. I love this series and definitely recommend it. Narrator Cornell Collins does an amazing job throughout the entire series. He really brought the characters to life.

Personal The complete Series

I enjoyed this set of stories. It is full of strong characters and multiple emotions. Each man has a personality that stands out yet together they are unstoppable. Every couple has their own problems to deal with and work together to fight for their love. I loved seeing not only the couples work together but also the way all the men come together and help one another no matter what. I also enjoyed the extra snippets that were added to see more into the men’s lives. All the characters made an impression and the love that they have shines through in all that they do. Showing that love is strong and worth fighting for.

Super steamy kink

The narration was great, Cornell Collins is fantastic, and his accent work is amazing. The stories were very steamy, kinky and a bit cliche', but it's a good collection and a great deal for 30 hours! I really liked the first story, the story of Blake and Will. I liked the connection between them and how Blake wanted to give more exposure to LGBTQ+ romance books in his publishing company. They also have a short a few books after that I was really excited to read. This collection is great of you like sexy steamy books.

Fantastic Series!

In my opinion, this is by far the best series from this author... which is saying a lot! I actually read this series several years ago, but to hear each character brought to life is simply amazing. The narrator did a fantastic job! Highly recommended!

Amazing series about a great group of friends!

Making it Personal: The series starts off with quite the steamy office romance as Blake, a successful CEO, falls for his assistant Will. Circumstances are less than ideal, but they can’t stay away from each other. Their chemistry is scorching, and their emotional connection is as seductive as the heat they share between them. I like that Will is more dominant in bed than Blake, who has the more powerful position in terms of jobs and social standing. Blake has grave concerns about coming out, especially with regards to his father’s reaction, and certain nefarious elements try to take advantage of that to manipulate Blake into what would amount to a lifetime of self-denial and unhappiness. Will is a wonderful character, very easy to love and empathize with. He has known more than his fair share of setbacks and pain and seeing him find love and a fulfilling career was just awesome. He deserves all the good things. The MC’s don’t have it easy, but in the end, everything gets resolved in a very satisfying manner. Love this story! Personal Changes: Rick is looking to make changes to his life, trying to find a meaningful connection, but he trusts the wrong man. My heart ached for him and then rejoiced when he got to know Angelo better and discovered that yes, there is a man out there he can love and trust. Angelo’s not out to his family, afraid they’ll reject him, a heartbreaking prospect, and as a result, he’s distanced himself from them, trying to keep his secret. I really liked that there were some severe bumps in the road when it came to Angelo’s family, and how that played out with regards to Rick and Angelo’s relationship. It wrought havoc on my heart, but it made the story that much more realistic, and the emotions that much more real. More than Personal: This is a sweet and sexy interlude where we get to see how Will and Blake’s HEA is turning out. They have been married for six years by now and are anxiously awaiting the birth of their first child. Of course, things don’t all go as planned, but little Sophie’s arrival is an endearing moment, and I loved seeing these two characters start the next phase in their life. We also get a teasing glimpse of other good things to come. It’s Ed’s turn now to find love! Personal Secrets: This is a beautiful friends-to-lovers, OFY romance. Low on angst, lots of happy butterflies, and with plenty of great friends and co-workers to support the MC’s. Colin’s been interested in his ‘straight’ mate for a while but never imagined something could actually happen between them. He is proved wrong in the best way. Ed, so gruff and straightforward, is adorable as he tries to figure out his new-found attraction to a man. It takes him a bit of soul-searching and a few mistakes, but he has his heart in the right place, and it is set on Colin. I love how Colin and Ed talk things out together, and how heartfelt and authentic the scenes with Ed and his mom felt, and with the rest of his family. Ed is hands down my favorite of all the MC’s in the Personal series, though all of them are awesome! Strictly Personal: Colin and Ed’s romantic getaway doesn’t go as planned when Colin ends up hurt, and Ed runs into trouble with the law. Luckily, Blake can be counted on to help Ed out, and Will joins them all in Manchester to salvage what’s left of both couples’ Valentine’s Day weekend. Colin went all out to give Ed a dream trip and still has a surprise up his sleeve, even after all the commotion. Swoon! Personal Challenges: we get to revisit all three couples in this final story. Will and Blake seem to have the perfect life with their two children, whom they love intensely. Sadly, their newborn baby son faces some health issues that are not easily solved. Their worry for little Nathan was heartwrenching and difficult to read. It’s easy to relate to the desperation of parents who just want what’s best for their child and want to protect them from any and all threats and cares. Sadly, that’s not always as easy as we’d like it to be. Rick and Angelo are mostly focused on trying to arrange their wedding, with a lot of well-meaning interference from Angelo’s mother, which at some point is more a hindrance than a help. Diplomacy is key, but they find a way, and Angelo’s mom continues to be a source of support and love in the face of the disapproval of some of Angelo’s very catholic relatives. Ed and Colin have a rough road ahead when someone from Colin’s past reaches out unexpectedly. Colin discovers new, painful things about this past relationship. As he tries to make his peace with these new revelations and be there for his former lover, things get incredibly emotional. I cried some ugly tears as this played out. Ed is the best, as always, absolutely amazing in how he supports Colin. His love for Colin is such a pure and powerful thing, incredibly moving. The book ends on a high note with wedding bells for Angelo and Rick. I adored their wedding! Can’t say more than that without ruining the surprise. But it was just … everything! Narration: Cornell Collins brings all the guys to life in the best way. I was charmed by each of the voices he did for the main characters in this amazing series. I loved the different accents and timbres he did, and the way he seemed to truly get all of their personalities. Wonderful performance!

Fantastic

Holy cow, I had never read these before in ebook format and I was missing out! This series is just incredible...each story is better than the one that came before it! KC Wells is a master at wringing many different emotions out of her readers and this collection is no exception! Cornell Collins did a fantastic job at narrating this collection. I look forward to listening to more of his work! Best value around for a credit, don't miss it!

I love the series, I love the complete audiobooks

The story is always 4-5 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. It took me a little bit, to come into the narrator, but at the end, it worked. I only have to take a few breaks between. I'm just not yet finish with the book, I’m over the half, 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

Wow over 30 hours of romance.

Personal complete series ❤️❤️❤️❤️. Overall 🎧🎧🎧🎧 Narration 📚📚📚📚. Story Read at 1.2 spread on Audible over 30 hours. First book is Blake and Wills story, Blake was in the closet, running his father's business Trinity Publishing, but still under the watchful eye of his father. Blake uses an escort agency to keep his urges at bay and to make sure no one (his father) finds out he's gay. Then he meets Will.

Rick was known for sleeping around but suddenly he realises that he wants more. He meets someone and things aren't quite what they seem and he ends up hurt, then he meets Angelo, will he be his happy ever after. Lots of angst, attempted rape and a gay bashing. We meet Will and Blake again, its Wills birthday, plus a new member to the family that we haven't met before, great excitement. The next story is of office manager Ed. and Colin his rugby playing friend, but Colin has fancied Ed for a while. Will Ed, who's straight, see Colin as anything but a friend. We also keep updated with the comings and goings of Will and Blake. We then follow the three couples over the years and their families, jobs, deaths, weddings and children. Thier lives are all linked and well written, you feel like you personally know these people. A well written series and a joy to read/listen to.

Fantastic value

This is such good value, you get 4 amazing books in one with characters that have been well developed and are interesting. I enjoyed that each of the stories was so different from each other and the characters were too. This is a series that I will definitely be listening to again as the characters and their stories really seemed to come to life for me. These books were definitely steamy but there was also a very strong storyline running through and this for me just made it that much more interesting. I enjoyed the narrator he has good pace and was able to create different voices for the different characters which makes it easier to follow
