Publisher's Summary

"I'm walking away from that dream."

At 23, an undiagnosed heart condition sends pro hockey player Cameron Riley back to his hometown newly single and looking for work. Cam can't hide his past - especially when his heart racing is a big risk, and boy, does his new boss's nephew make his heart race. Noah's exactly the kind of guy Cam needs after his hellish ex.

Art curator Noah Clark is glad his beekeeping uncle hired this hunk. Cameron is a sweet, smart bad boy. Noah works hard, like organizing a hockey-themed art exhibition, and he wants to let himself love hard. Noah's busy life would be perfect with Cameron, but what's his new lover hiding?

Pitting Cam's budding relationship with sweet Noah against millions of bucks, Cam is offered a lot of money to abandon his new priorities: life, love, and family. The game of their lives is on the line. And after all's said and done, is it too late for Noah to forgive Cam for his partial truths?

Buzz is a steamy, standalone gay romance novel with a happily ever after ending and no cliffhanger.

I adore Michael Pauley!!

I adore Michael Pauley and he narrates Buzz perfectly. He brings Cam and Noah perfectly to life and I hope we get a chance to hear more of The Riley Brothers series narrated by him.

Amazing

The greatness of this book, the series in fact, cannot be stated with enough adjectives.

Noah's soft heart and acceptance allow for a heartbroken Cameron to find a place of space in a world that is spinning off its axis.

From the first meeting to the last scene you feel the blossoming of love expressed in the between words. Those words and thoughts we keep to ourselves out of fear that they will not be welcomed.

Art curator and a forced retired hockey player navigate the landscape keeping each other in their sights, tethering one to the other and all that comes from it is beautiful.

Buzz

This book was good. Nothing truly note worthy. The Story between Cam and Noah is just a cute romance with no angst or Drama. Which is kind of nice. Sometimes you just need a sweet story to read and this would be it. I’ve read the book and the series before and they get better as the books go along.
Listening to the Audio of this book was a nice way to spend a few hours! Michael Pauley did a good job narrating this one. His voice is really nice to listen to and he does a good job keeping all the voices separate and putting enough emotion into them when needed.

An unusually cute m/m sports romance

Buzz is actually an unusually cute m/m sports romance. Why? Because generally when an athlete is forced to leave his chosen sport as Cameron was, he takes another sports-related job like coaching. So to see Cameron go into beekeeping made it a rather unique storyline. As someone who grew up in the part of the Florida Panhandle where Tupelo Honey is harvested, I have a healthy appreciation for bees and their keepers and found that aspect of the story to be quite lovely.

While I'm not an artist and don't have artistic bone in my body, I appreciated Noah's passion for art and wanted to hunt down the board member(s) who were making his job more difficult than it should have been. Granted, I loved the idea of the hockey-themed art installation at the arena and wanted to see it come to fruition. The description of the metal sculpture that Cam's brother made for the show was spectacular and made all of Noah's hard work worth it.

The relationship between the two men was an enjoyable one. They were well matched and despite some speedbumps and a major (but understandable) omission on Cameron's part, their relationship progressed quite nicely. While their attraction was obvious from the beginning, they took their time getting to know one another before they had sex. And their sexy times were steamy, especially the last one in the book.

While I enjoyed Michael Pauley's narration and thought he did a nice job in bringing Cam, Noah, and the others to life, I enjoy his romantic suspense and thriller performances more. Pauley has an edge to his voice that heightens the intensity and suspense in a scene. As Cam had a couple of confrontational moments in the book, Pauley's edge elevated those scenes.

The sports. The romance. The bees. The Riley Brothers. I'll certainly keep my eye out for future installments in the series to be released to audio as I was definitely entertained and would love to hear Jackson find his forever with Chase.

NOTE: I listened to this title via Audible's Romance Package.

Sweet as honey

This was a nice book but I felt like some parts of it tended to drag out a bit sometimes and wish it was more fluid.

I did read it before in e-book format, which was a bit harder to get into. However, Michael Pauly did a great job narrating this story and bringing it to life, making it more interesting and engaging. I am a long time fan of Michael, and love his emotional renditions of characters and situations.

This is a sweet love story, it is very gentle and I liked Cam's brother's a lot.
I would say i think it's not a master piece, but a feel-good romantic read for sure.

Enjoyable start to a new series

This was a sweet no angst read. Through the entire book you are lead to believe that there was going to be some time of issue was going to happen with Cam’s ex but nothing ever came of it. I can’t wait to continue with this series.

Sweet as Honey :)

I love this story. I love the characters. The danger of a medical condition and the awkwardness of hero status starts Cam and Noah's relationship of on a secretive foot, but the love of bees and love of love might be strong enough to get them through both. My only frustration is the the narrator sounds like a newscaster with a sinus infection, and threw off the book for me, which I'd read on Kindle.

Amazing narration for an incredible story

Narration Review
I listened to this book in audio as a second read. I have to say that I really enjoyed the book the first time, but I loved it even more this time. Michael Pauley did such an AMAZING job with the narration and sucked me right into the story. He had very distinct voices for Cam and Noah, and I could imagine that is exactly what they sounded like. The scenes where Cam and Noah finally got together were HOT. holy cow Michael brought such passion and tension into the scenes. It was beautifully done.

Book Review
I am such a sucker for hockey players in my books. That made this just a bit of a guaranteed read for me.

Cam is a professional hockey player who finds he has some heart problem that requires him to retire from the game. He also has a real jerk ex who leaves him while he is sick in the hospital, claiming it's partly because Cam is in the closet. He loves the game, but finds once he gets back home that he missed being with his family and having a more sedentary life (versus traveling all over all the time). He has a great bond with his siblings and his parents.

Noah is a museum curator and is in the process of creating an exhibit about local hockey. His uncle, who he is close with, is a beekeeper, and Noah helps him out from time to time. He is very knowledgeable about bees and random art stuff. He's sweet and adorable.

They meet and there is immediate attraction. What I loved, though, is that they didn't get together right then. When they saw each other a day or a few days later, then they chatted and set up a date. They didn't rush into anything. Noah helps Cam realize what is important in life, and makes him question what it is he really wants. Cam kept a lot of secrets from Cam, but they weren't malicious or handled in a negative way. Cam was afraid of Noah treating him differently if he knew he was a hockey player, because that is how he was treated in the past.

Of course the guys work through everything and we get a nice HEA with the wonderful promise of 2 more books!!! There are 3 brothers so I am looking forward to their stories. I am also looking forward to seeing Cam and Noah throughout those books. I want to know what is really going on with Cam's heart, and I am hoping we will find out in the next books.

I really, really enjoyed this and can't wait for the rest of the series.

Great book to listen!

Buzz is the first book in the Riley Brothers series.
Cam is a pro hockey player about to be drafted, when a heart condition benches him. He goes back to his hometown and meets Noah, the cute museum's art curator.
The spark is instant ...
Michael Puley, does, as always, an excellent job in bringing characters to life. I especially loved Noah's "voice"!

This book really got me buzzing!!

I love Ed’s work, especially the Riley Brothers series, then add in Micheal Pauley’s narrative and you got 5 stars right there. An absolutely brilliant, light hearted listen with some smoking hot bedroom action! Defiantly with a credit!
