Publisher's Summary

Ace Locke is Hollywood's hottest action hero. Women across the globe fling their panties in his direction, but Ace isn't interested in those - he's more of a boxer briefs kind of guy. Specifically, those of the nearly naked male model on a billboard he drives past every day.

Though he recently made headlines for his public coming out, Ace is wary about pursuing a relationship, fearing what the court of public opinion will do to his career. But there's something in the model's expression that intrigues him and has him wondering what if?

Dylan Prescott just scored his biggest modeling campaign yet. One that has him plastered all over L.A. in not much more than what he was born with. And when he's cast in Ace's latest blockbuster, it puts him in close proximity to his ultimate fantasy.

Outwardly confident, Dylan has no problem with his sexuality or his pretty-boy looks, and uses both to his advantage to get what he wants. And what he wants is the impossible - Ace Locke.

From Ella Frank's Sunset Cove series and Brooke Blaine's L.A. Liaisons series comes a scorchingly hot novel that blends humor, passion, and romance. What happens when these two worlds collide?

Lust quickly becomes something more tangible.

If you could sum up Aced in three words, what would they be?

Thrilling, Intense, Erotic.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Dylan but just barely, I really, thoroughly enjoyed both Dylan and Ace immensely. Both men were driven and focused and once that focus and drive was directed at one another, holy hell, it was nothing short of amazing.

What does Charlie David bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He brings the characters to life.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

This film has been rated R by the motion picture association due to strong language and what could possibly be the most intense and electric connection between two men ever captured on film.

Any additional comments?

I devoured this book, had to force myself to remove the ear buds to sleep. Ace and Dylan are definitely one of the sexiest couples I've ever read or listened to. Add to that Charlie David's amazing narration and this book quickly became a favorite.

Let me tell you what I enjoyed most. That the two adult males in this book were every bit adult. There was zero angst and minimal miss-communication. You can't have a relationship with anyone without occasional interference but it never monopolized the story. The growing relationship between Ace and Dylan was always the core of the story and I loved that so much. If you like stories where the characters are strong, fierce and loyal... balanced perfectly with human flaws and concerns, you really need to give this one a try.

TOO MUCH BASS!

If you could sum up Aced in three words, what would they be?

Fantastic Enjoyable toomuchbass

Any additional comments?

The story is great, the narrator is excellent. I am not sure how it was done when finishing the audio for the story, but the narrator has WAY too much bass. It makes it a bit harder to hear yet dually once you turn it up, the bass can be heard throughout the house.

To listen in my car, I had to adjust the mix....no bass and as much treble as I could get and it's still a problem.

If you can muscle through a bad mix job, the story is PHENOMENAL. I am so hooked on what happens next, I have to listen to all of the books, even with the bass problem.

Great story, AMAZING narration

What made the experience of listening to Aced the most enjoyable?

The story held me captive, and the narration was stellar.

What other book might you compare Aced to and why?

Probably Ella Frank's Temptation series, that also has engaging (and sexy) characters.

What about Charlie David’s performance did you like?

He did different voices for Ace and Dylan, and they were both sooooo sexy!!!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I WANTED to. Life didn't allow that, but it was hard to put down!

Any additional comments?

This will definitely be a re-listen at some point.

Great start to a new series

Overall I really enjoyed these two. At times they acted like a couple of 12 yr olds but they were fun. The only thing that left me from rating this a 5 star review was Ace. He had come out about a year before the story starts but still acts like he is in the closet. If he was in the closet & starting a relationship w/Dylan it would have been different but he wasn't. These two were scorching hot together & the scene at the hotel, holy hell that was so hot!!! If book two wouldn't have been out I would have been so mad because the ending was left on a little bit of a cliffhanger as Ace has to make a decision in a very short time. Off to the next.

A- rating...

My Review:
Overall: 4.25
Performance: 3.75
Story: 4.5

Oooh, I liked this story so much more than I expected to. I'm totally and completely in love with Ace and Dylan. Dylan with his hippy dippy family. Ace with his...totally the opposite. They're wonderful together. And I love how infatuated they were with one another before they met. They were both definitely fanboys and they each have those tiny little moments of "pinch me, is this real?" that made them totally awesome.

I'll admit, I was totally shocked by the cliffhanger ending. I had no idea that there was even a second book, so when the audio ended, I just sat there with my mouth hanging open ready to scream...NO! But then I got over it and immediately got online and bought book #2 in audio.

So, yeah...this is a good one.

Although I had a really annoying little niggle about the audiobook. The pov's change without any notice. That's fine if you're reading a book and can see the break on the page, but listening to the audio, it took me a good half the book before I began to listen specifically for these changes and the clues in the dialogue signaling them. It might have worked if the narrator used significantly different voices for the two main characters, but he didn't. So I spent too much time in the audiobook trying to keep track of who the "I" was in the narration. It was more than a little distracting.

But even with that, the book was great. I definitely recommend it.

enjoyed the Story

I have become a huge fan of the Temptation, Exquisite, Sunset Cove and now the PresLocke series. I love the flow of the characters between the stories.

The stories read by Charlie Davis are fun and he does a good job of making seem real and fun. guess this is how it was in the age of Radio. i like the tone and timber of his voice throughout the story.

although this is the first of three stories, it is a matter if days before I complete all three.

cliff hanging is cheating. I did like the character development. could have used a little more on the set plot.
