Torn on How to Rate This Audiobook

“I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”

A woman who doesn't want a permanent relationship as she is battling health issues. Two men, friends, who are both interested in this woman.

One man has known her longer and can't seem to make up his mind to what depth he wants their relationship. She just wants some friends with benefits, and very little benefits. His friend, hooks up behind the first man's back with her and feels all kinds of guilt but becomes move and move involved.

The use of drugs is prevalent in the girls and second man's relationship but it becomes apparent for her it is primarily for medical reasons.

The portion of the story I have issues with is the immaturity of all involved...it made it hard for me to like the characters...but I liked the 'couple' a little more towards the ending, a cliffhanger where I actually had sympathy for two of the characters.

The narrators did an excellent job..I happily listen to them again.

I'm not sure I can say who would like this story...it could be worth a shot, but 50-50 whether you like it or not..then of course it's a cliffhanger

.Panty dropping erotica.

Would you consider the audio edition of F*THS to be better than the print version?

I usually find short stories frustrating because the story lacks sufficient details or dimensions.G.L. Tomas has delicately balanced this story with just enough background detail, panty melting moments, romance ,of a sort ;) ,humor and a really deep story for one of our trio that touched me.The writer and narrators managed to keep the story well paced and keep the reader enthralled.Both Aundrea Mitchell and Logan McAllister narrate the story well, projecting the flavour of the story with flair.
What I did enjoy of course is the performance, there are some narrators who you know aren't going to let you down. Their voices, attention to tone and story telling are great, you can put the book on and know you're getting the right everything for your time and money.Anundrea Mitchel is that sort of a narrator.This was the first I heard from Logan but I'd me more than happy to hear more,he has a voice that will make you quiver and melt don't feel this magic could be created on page alone.

What was one of the most memorable moments of F*THS?

So, I really enjoyed this and would very happily recommend it to anyone who read and enjoys erotica and a "love" triangle. I personally think that it quite hits the some dizzy heights . The book was extremely original and clever in that it delivered a genuine voyage of sexual discovery as well as a look in to someones life who is not healthy but has a sex life. She may be a little messed up by all that is happening to her but I really don't blame her.I have read some comments that the actions of our frisky trio are immature but I wonder if they would say the same in her shoes. I think this one is very enjoyable and it has the same page-turning qualities.as the others in the series .( I am reviewing after listening to all three)

Any additional comments?

To sum it up this is a story from narratosr and writer who is finely honing their crafts and who is capable of engendering tension and excitement in her readers in a subtle and intelligent fashion. Using very contemporary themes that are made harrowing through emotion and commentary rather than gory description. Whether this really is the best in the series in all aspects may be questionable but I do believe that it's the one I have most enjoyed(I am writing this after reading all three)I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.I received this title for free in exchange for an unbiased review.As always this is my honest opinion .

Stars simple and gets complicated fast.

I was given this audiobook at no charge by the author and volunteered a review.

This book has characters with diverse backgrounds which is very interesting to read/listen to as not a lot of books have characters with ethnical background.

This story starts with two friends with benefits kind of relationship when a third friend enters the picture. Teddy and Reggie have an open relationship that neither really cares about when she meets Asher.

Teddy is also dealing with some heath issues and theres a lots of references to drug use.

I don’t want to into anything more as not to give the plot away.
The book had two narrators and ends on a cliffhanger. There are 2 other books in the series.

EMOTIONAL JUNGLE OF LIFE, LOVE & FRIENDSHIPS

Any additional comments?

I was generously provided this audiobook at no charge by the author in exchange for an unbiased review.

It's a difficult task to create a complex world in under 5 hours but G. L. Thomas accomplished just that. Not only does she script a believable love triangle, she adds the fight against cancer, cultural and multicultural elements, social class, and the vulnerability of friendships.

Teddy comes from a cold but well-to-do family. She's fighting cancer and manages her pain with weed. On her good days, she only wants to feel alive and safe. Reggie has occasionally filled that need but is a player, not wanting a relationship. Through him she meets tattooed & pierced Asher and their attraction is instant. Asher and Teddy become closer, keeping their relationship secret in order to keep friendships intact. Reggie senses her distance and reconsiders the strength of his attraction, deciding he was wrong and wants to pursue a relationship. There begins the deceit, the pain, and the losses as they navigate friendships and love.

My one and only complaint is the cliffhanger. I have listened to all three books so far and wish this would have been one long, delicious HEA book. Nonetheless, I love it.

TWO THUMBS UP!

R*THS: Reader That Has Stopped

While this may be presented as a "love triangle", there's an obvious connection between the two main characters that pushes the third toward simply being a secondary, though major, character. It's all about Teddy and Asher. It took me a long while into this book to begin sympathizing with Teddy. She was too cold and closed off, and I couldn't get a read on her character. Then in the final third of the book, her vulnerability is exposed and I was just getting into the story when BOOM! along comes the cliffhanger.

This audiobook has dual narration and is well produced. While the narrators did a good job, the voices they each used for Reggie were remarkably distinct. I've never noticed this before in other books when two people are voicing the same character but it really pulled me out of the story a few times. It actually impacted my perception of the character.

I'm not sure yet whether I’m intrigued enough to listen to the next book. If it would be like the end of this book, absolutely but I'm too afraid it'll be like the beginning. I think this reader will stop here.

Really loved this story

Who was your favorite character and why?

I loved Asher. He was a great guy. He was loyal and caring and wore his heart on his sleeve.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Aundrea Mitchell and Logan McAllister ?

Yes. I liked Aundrea Mitchell but she narrates a little too fast. I like Logan McAllister too. This was my first book from either but wont be my last.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this book. I haven't read another book I could compare it with. It was about regular people with real issues. I had a few issues with Teddy but considering her situation I let it slide. I liked the romance between Teddy and Asher. I would definetely recommend this book and look forward to listening to the next one.

Teddy's a bear!

Teddy King has two men on a string, Reggie and Teddy have an open relationship that neither wants and when Teddy meets Asher Rose she does some serious juggling, but it seems Asher may be coming out on top, if they can both stop denying their true feelings and if Teddy can come clean about her serious health issue.

This was an interesting listen for me. At the beginning I found Teddy a totally unsympathetic character, she seemed cold and indifferent to all who come into contact with her, I’m not sure why either man is enamored with Teddy. And I found the constant use of drugs problematic, especially given Teddy’s condition.

As a reader, I enjoy stories where the characters are less than perfect, I find it makes the story more believable and feels more real. The problem I have with this story? Teddy’s feeling and emotions don’t translate to the written page so I felt no connection to her character.

About halfway through this audiobook, It seemed author GL Tomas, finally fleshed out Teddy’s character and I found the second half of this audiobook much more enjoyable. And by the end, I was anxious to hear what would happen next. This 4 ½ hour audiobook has the dreaded cliffhanger, but I’m intrigued enough to put the next installment on my watch list.

The audiobook has dual narration by Aundrea Mitchell and Logan McAllister and both did a good job in this well-produced audiobook. The one issue was Reggie’s character was voiced so completely different depending on whether Aundrea or Logan was voicing him. Now of course, when you have two different sexes voicing the same character, there are bound to be differences. But, the differences were not just in the depth of Reggie’s voice, but also the tone, Aundrea made him sound wimpy and whiny and Logan made him sound gruff and aloof. I found the change distracting.

That being said, I enjoyed both Aundrea Mitchell and Logan McAllister’s readings and I would definitely listen to another audiobook by either narrator!

A Hohum story

I got this ARC book from the author. I did not like the basic story although the narration was good. There was romance and a cliffhanger. More sex than romance and I did not like the cheating. I understand the drug use for medical reasons but this story did not resonate with what I think of as a romance story. Lots of sex, though.

Good

Any additional comments?

Loved it, the main characters have chemistry, which is needed for erotica. I loved how this was erotica but still dealt with severe issues such as cancer. Shows that no matter how hard life is you can still get that happy ending, with lots of sex.

Gritty and a bit depressing

“I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”

At first this book seemed like just a string of hook-ups, drugs, and lots of drinking…parties, sex, more drinking, more drugs. It's gritty and the sex is very graphic, but there is little emotional depth. The story didn't seems to have much of a plot and there was absolutely zero romance. I couldn't relate to any of the characters. Then, about half-way through, when Teddy goes to the hospital, I started to see the beginnings of a plot and a real story, and then it rushed toward the cliff-hanger ending, with Teddy just going away, leaving Asher in the dust. Again, no connection between them, no talking about the situation...

I had a hard time enjoying this audiobook. I understand that Teddy has a significant health issue, but I didn't find anything sympathetic about her behavior. She rails at Reggie that it's always about what she can so for him...but she is exactly the same. Selfish and Self-centered. Asher was the only character I truly liked. I felt sorry for him, though, because he became so sweet and caring toward Teddy, and yet she kept stringing him along. There was a genuine lack of communication in general between the characters and no actual talking things out.

The narration was okay and suited the story.

I am interested to know how the story ends, but if the second book is like this one, and longer to boot, I am not sure I can stomach another 6 hours of Teddy feeling sorry for herself and selfishly unwilling to decide to commit to either of the two guys. I'm on the fence about this one. If you like gritty, real-life stories, this might be a book/audiobook for you, but if you are looking for sweet, heart-felt romance, you won't find it here.
