Publisher's Summary

The complete Rip Cord trilogy: 

The Reunion

Gil Davis hated high school. Ever the geek, he has no intentions of attending his 10th-year class reunion. The last thing he wants is to relive the taunting and teasing he received during his teenage years. However, there is one thing he misses from high school: the star varsity football player. The one he had a crush on from the first day he laid eyes on him. But the last thing he expects is the now-pro football player to come back to their hometown to attend a lame high school reunion. Known as the bad boy of the NFL, Ripley "Rip" Cord not only shows up, but shows up without a date and an eye for Gil.  

The Weekend

Geek Gil Davis hasn't heard a word from NFL player Rip Cord since hooking up at their class reunion. Then Rip calls him unexpectedly; he's taking Gil to his cabin for a weekend of exploration.

The Ever After

When Rip Cord is kicked out of the NFL, he shows up unexpectedly at Gil Davis' front door. With his career over, Rip's finally ready for a future with Gil, if Gil's willing to give him another chance.

Finding your truth

This M/M sports trilogy captured a story of redemption and love. Meeting Gil the life long “nerd” and Ripley ‘Rip’ Cord the high school jock turned NFL star, in a tale of found hidden love and acceptance. After Rip loses everything he has known, he finds out that the only thing he truly needs is Gil. Loved seeing the unlikely pairing end of a HEA and hearing the narration of this audiobook fit perfectly together!

Progresses Well

At first I wasn't a big fan of the characters. They felt a little off to me. But as the story progresses we understand more of where they are coming from. I really loved the audio narrator's voice! He did such an excellent job with these characters and bringing them to life!

Amazing Narration!!!

Okay, when I originally read this story, I thought Rip was a major jerk whom treated Gil really horribly. However, listening to John Solo bring both characters, and Katie, to life changes my opinion. His narration really brought the characters new life to me. His interpretation of both Gil's and Rip's personality was so amazing that I actually fell for the big jerk.

A trilogy with heat (lots of heat) and heart

I listed to this trilogy on the heels of listing to Double Dare, by the same author and I knew that Rip Cord would have me hooked from page one. Gil Davis, like many, hated high school. He was the nerd that was relentlessly hassled by the jocks. Ripley "Rip" Cord, was the resident jock and object of Gil's secret crush. Fast forward 10 years and Gil finds himself at his 10 year high school reunion. He is older now, a bit nerdy and still crushing on Rip. Rip is the now the badboy of the NFL; getting in fights, getting kicked off of teams and generally raising hell. Gil doesn't even realize that Rip knows his name until he starts talking to him at the reunion. Rip not only knows and remembers Gil from those high school days but has his sights on him. The only thing is it turns out the bad boy of the NFL is still in the closet. This story was told from Gil's POV and we get to watch how the sweet nerd and the arrogant bad boy navigate life, their burgeoning relationship and coming to terms with their pasts. I laughed and at times my heart broke for these two men, but through it all I rooted for their HEA.

Good jock/nerd triology

This is categorized as a mm sports audio however other than Ripcord being a NFL star there is no part of the game in this series. I have to say I wasn’t too fond of Rip in first book and part of the second book. He was bossy and seemed it was his way or no way. That being said Gil was mousy and didn’t stand up for himself either. He just went along with anything because Ripcord was his dream guy. My opinion changed towards end of book 2 where we see Rip put Gil’s want/needs first. The 3rd book was the best in my opinion and made the whole trilogy worth listening to. It shows who Rip really was and why he was who he was. Gil also was able to vocalize what he wanted and needed.

The story was good and flowed easily. The sex was hot and very detailed. I will be looking to see what other audios the author has in the future.

John Solo did a great job narrating. It was easy to distinguish each character. He also told the story with feeling not just read it aloud. I have listened to his work before and will do so in future.

Rip - Finding true north

There is a feeling a person gets when they read a book as opposed to listening to a narrator bring the characters and words to life. It took a little time to warm up to the narrator's voice but once I got going, I just got swept away. This is one touching storyline of two men finding out who they really are and what they are willing to do to have the life they want to live. If you enjoy a M/M storyline then this is one you should definitely check out. I was gifted a copy of this book and all thoughts are my own.

Brilliant entertainment!!

Wow this is a wonderful story. I'm not usually keen on MM romances or sports stories for that matter but I love Jeanne St James writting so I knew i couldn't go far wrong with this one. I was so right!
Beautifully written, sexy, funny and heart wrenching. An endearing story of hope and dreams and the harsher realities of life.
highly recommended!
Great narration.

Finally free

The high school nerd and the popular jock, not an unusual pair. While in high school, nothing ever happened, but 10 years later at their high school reunion things would change. Rip is struggling on his football team, the ultimate bad boy and finds comfort and passion with Gil. Thinking it was only a one night stand, Gil was excited to get the call and spend the weekend with Rip. And their relationship begins to build. I am not normally an MM listener, but when this story came out, I was intrigued. I love the character of Rip. He is the ultimate hunky man, but is so tortured by his secrets. At times I felt Gil needed a little more backbone, but reflecting on the story, I think he was able to give Rip what he needed to become the man he is supposed to be. With hot, erotic scenes, love and understanding, Jeanne St James has written an enjoyable listen.

This is my first narration by John Solo, and I loved his voice for Rip. I did think he gave Gil a pretty weak voice, and while his character is more introverted, I would have liked him to have a little more confidence. His pace was great and he gave the men just the right amount of emotions.
