"I need you to teach me how to be gay."
Logan Moore is finally ready to come out of the closet. His days of playing football are far behind him, he has graduated from the Culinary Institute of America (CIA), and his bakery, Moore Delicious, is finally in the black. Although he spends more time talking to his cats than he does people, he technically has time for a social life now that he has hired two new employees. In short, Logan is completely out of excuses to stay in the closet, where it is warm and cozy and he never has to worry about how to dress, what to say, or who is watching. So he turns to his older brother's friend for guidance. And if that friend just happens to be his longtime crush and if one thing might lead to another...well, that would just be icing on the cake.
Chance Blevins is a math geek through and through, who is more than happy to spend his nights curled up with his dog, Luna. With a few toxic relationships in his past, Chance contents himself with friends with benefits and fantasies involving his best friend's very straight soon-to-be brother-in-law, Logan. Because of a verbal slip the day they met and a teasingly demanded vow of secrecy, he believes that Logan actually works for the CIA, making him even further out of his league. When Logan comes to him for help with what he can only assume is a cover identity, he is more than happy to oblige.
A Chance for Moore is a quirky friends-to-lovers, first-time gay romance between two sexy, pet-loving geeks. It has a happily ever after ending as well as a gratuitous car chase, obscene bachelorette party pastries, grown men dressing their "furbabies" in ridiculous hats, and truly terrible math-based innuendo.
This was my first book by Alex Miska, V.Soffer, and it won't be my last. The story was sweet, and it definitely had all the feels. The story is about Logan and chase. Logan is in the closet, and chase is out and proud. Logan has had a crush on chase since they met. Logan asks chase for some help, and there relationship starts. They have a few misunderstandings, but the story flows nicely. The narration was ok. I would definitely recommend this book.

This is the first book in The Moore Romance Series. A delightful book the writing was amazing. The plot was entertaining and it was steady throughout the book. I found the story and characters spellbinding. The characters were well developed and thought out. Chance and Logan are the MC’s of this book. With cats and dogs being fur babies. One reviewer said they had a problem with not knowing who some people were. In the prologue it says who Greg is. I didn’t have same problem I knew who people were. There was humor, Luna, Siamese Cats, a bakery, friends, family, a stalker, emotions, CIA and so much more in this book.
Here is a quote from the book, “So… you’re a Hugger.” Oh God. Could the ground just open and swallow me up? “Apparently!” Amelia chirped and squeezed my bicep. “So, we brought some muscle and the truck. Greg’s stuff is already inside but there’s plenty of room. All the other Moores will meet us at Greg and Dani’s new place. Take us to your boxes!” Chance waved us in…”Smoooooooth,” she teased.”. There is more but you will need to read the book which I can highly recommend. I voluntarily read an advance copy of this book for an honest review.
For The narration I have to say that I didn’t care for his voice. But that's ok that is very subjective to each person (like you prefer blue eyes to brown). But knowing that I can be very picky here I didn’t just stop listening. And I’m glad because he did an incredible job narrating this book. He was very expressive with the emotions and actions in the book. He also has different voices for each character. And these are two of the most important things for me in an audiobook. I also like how he did the text messages throughout the book that made it so the flow of the story went smoothly and there was no confusion. And I was able to completely enjoy this book with such great narration.

New to me narrator Sean Lenhart performs this story wonderfully. He has good character voices, nice timing, a delightfully emotive narration - it all worked together to make this, on the whole, a very pleasant listen.
There are some great points to the story - the characters are likable, the sex is hot, the humor is funny and on point. Unfortunately, while the narration was very entertaining and there is a very sweet HEA - they just couldn't make up for the numerous flaws in the story.
The story is burdened with one completely nonsensical plot line, one terribly underdeveloped plot line, and another plot line that wasn't well explained, and it all combined to make this at times a very frustrating listen.
Some are things that would normally be ignored while reading a book because you can skim ahead, but that's virtually impossible to do with an audiobook and still know what's happening, so you have to listen to it all, which can exacerbate some areas that wouldn't normally chafe because they'd be skimmed when visually reading.
This really needed some cleanup editing to deal with the convoluted plot lines and its glut of manufactured and unnecessary angst, while missing a plum opportunity to increase angst naturally through the stalker storyline.
Ultimately, this could have been a total "nope" for me but it was saved through the humor and the narration. Sean Lenhart certainly delivered a good performance and kept me listening until the end.
However, if you like humor, lots of hot sex, and don't mind a bit of illogical storytelling, then your mileage may absolutely vary.
Story - 2 Stars
Narration - 4 Stars

loved this. found myself listening to it every chance I got.....no pun intended 😉. wicked
This is the first in a series and you are instantly drawn into their story and lives. The narrator does an amazing job of bringing the characters to life. Logan and Chance have an interesting beginning to their relationship with Chance believing something that was meant to be a joke. Then Logan decides that he can be himself and asks Chance to help him. You will find yourself laughing at points and all but bawling at others.
Would you listen to A Chance for Moore again? Why?
Yes, the Logan and Chance love story just begs to be listened to over and over
What was one of the most memorable moments of A Chance for Moore?
When Logan set up the surprise "try to win him back" photo gallery.
Which scene was your favorite?
When Logan was wearing his "clubbing" outfit
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I was laughing throughout the book but I had a few tears when Logan was showing Chance all of the pictures.
such a sweet sweet book I liked this book very much it was a very cute book with some problems a lot of jokes and a good amount off emotions the book was very indulging the characters wore cozy and adorable chance was a very good character he had his insecurities his fears and our sweets was great and cute as well a very enjoyable book
This book is very sweet and funny, despite the sporadic presence of a twisted stalker and characters in need of therapy. Logan has been getting ready to come out to his family for years, especially since the first time he met his brother's girlfriend's best friend Chance. And Chance has been crushing on Logan for just as long, despite believing that Logan is straight. The two men have since been pushed together over and over throughout the intervening years. When Logan finally comes out to Chance and asks the other man to help him learn how to be gay, Chance doesn't stand a chance of resisting him.
There are three obstacles to a happliy ever after for these men: a stalker who seems to be angry that Chance is dating Logan; Chance himself, with his procrastination regarding telling his family that he is in a relationship with Chance (who his family already loves); and Chance, with his conviction that he will never be in a long-lasting relationship and his fear of being left behind.
I love the Moore family, the group of friends, and Chance's Nana. There is so much love in this story, between all the different characters. Between Chance's attempts at cooking, Logan's gay club attire, penis cakes, crocheted pet garb, and all the shenanigans the various characters get into, there are many smiles and laughs to be had. The narrator does a good job, especially in his portrayal of Chance.
I'm excited to begin the second book in the series.
A CHANCE FOR MOORE is such a cute and funny feel-good friends to lovers story with one of the MCs not being out yet – as a jock Logan thought it best to keep that information hidden. I can’t really say what appeals to me so much about that kind of character – or a total gay for you story – but they totally do. This was a huge part of the reason why I couldn’t pass up the chance to listen to the audio book.
Five years ago, an injury ended Logan’s sports career and he decided to register at the CIA – Culinary Institute of America – instead. Around that time, he also meets Chance through a family friend and feels incredibly drawn to him, but, being not out yet, he decides to keep his feeling hidden. What he doesn’t know is that Chance feels the same about him, but in his belief of Logan being straight isn’t pursuing it either.
When they meet again years later, Logan essentially ambushes him when asking him to teach him “to be gay”. Of course he jumps at the chance, still having feelings for the man, but without immediately cleaning the air about it, so that heaps of misunderstandings are bound to happen... Add to that that Chance has practically been abandoned by his family when he told them he was gay then it’s understandable that trust does not come easily for him and he is always expecting the worst…
It was funny and frustrating in equal measure to see them dance around each other without finding the courage to finally, finally speak their minds, but I have to admit at some point it was more maddening than anything else. I loved them going through countless gay stereotypes though, without either of them really feeling it – like it’s mandatory to have done that to be a proper gay man. And the CIA misunderstanding just further added to the humorous part of the story. It is a sweet and easy-flowing story with a bit of cheesiness and danger thrown into the mix. I’m definitely down for a revisit of the Moore family in future books.
Sean Lenhart provides the audio book with wonderful extra layers, bringing out the fun and emotion in the story and not only reading but acting out things like laughing and crying – I liked that very much. His voice is smooth and pleasant – well, except when he is voicing Amelia: Yes, it has been said that her voice is high-pitched, but his voice for her was annoying and a bit over-the-top. Same goes for some other parts of his narration – while I love animated and performed audio books, it sometimes was a bit too much. Still, I know I will definitely be giving him another chance, because I overall truly enjoyed his work.
Audio- OH My Gawd.. I absolutely Loved the Audio for this one. LOL. It was soo good. I've never listened to this narrator before and with the first few minutes I really wasn't sure how I was going to feel about him and his voice. But... OMG it was soo good, I really enjoyed it, Sean had so many different voices and he did such a good job with them and giving the Characters; Character.
Book - This is one of my Favorite Series. So when I saw it was on Audio I had to snag it with my credit. Chance is so funny, coming into the story he thinks that Logan is in the CIA (hehe, the Culinary Institute of America) and thinks he has to keep Logan's secret lol. Logan is a football player turned Baker, who "needs help being gay and coming out" LOL. They have both liked each other for years and not known about the other one liking them. Seriously?!? This book really is so funny. And then you add in the Animals the two MC's have it gets even better. I could read these books (and now listen to them) over and over.
Would you consider the audio edition of A Chance for Moore to be better than the print version?
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Sean Lenhart and found myself more involved than with the print version. He made Chance more appealing to me.
What does Sean Lenhart bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
I thought Sean did a great job of bringing the characters to life in a way that print version didn't quite match for me.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I mainly listen to audiobooks during my commute but I couldn't wait for the next chapter!
Any additional comments?
I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author for an honest review and all opinions expressed are my own. I had already read the Kindle version of this book but found I enjoyed the audiobook more and I can't wait to listen to the next one in the series.
Very funny I loved the two MCs they had depth fantastic details to them and the story. I think it is in my top two audibles( I have a lot) if you want a light hearted funny story look no further, very entertaining Highly recommended
This book definitely had me laughing out loud, some of the antics Logan and chase get up to cracked me up! Lots of daft misunderstandings that we, the listener, get to fully understand due to the dual POV. An enjoyable book with very likeable MC's and a whole host of supporting characters that deserve their own story. Nothing too angsty so great for a long car journey - I loved Logan and was rooting for him throughout the story.
I liked Sean Lenhart's narration, even if the voices of the female characters grated a bit! His voices for the characters were very different so no mix ups.
Looking forward to the next book in the series.
A good book. Very funny in parts. It actually had me laughing out loud. Definitely worth listening to. I'd not come across Sean Lenhart as a narrator before, but he was very good. I'd definitely listen to him again. It was a lovely, near angst free, feelgood story.
