Publisher's Summary

I'm Vaughn Lair.

You might have heard of my rock-star cousin, Jack.

I'm on the radio for entirely different reasons.

My voice may not cause women to swoon through music and lyrics...it's the content of my syndicated radio show that has them desperate to talk to me.

I'm a sex therapist who doles out great advice.

My doctorate gives me license to hold nothing back.

My listeners have crowned me the King of Romance.

I change relationships for the better. I'm the sexpert.

The erotic shock jock.

The man with a plan.

Except when it comes to my own damn love life.

Then one call on the air turns the tables on me.

A stranger suddenly has me questioning everything I thought I knew about myself.

And then an unexpected turn of events between my best friend and me only worsens my confusion.

This man no longer has a plan.

This man is now the one needing advice.

Right amount of romance and fun!

Any additional comments?

Loved this book for a fun story from friends to more. Vaughn was a fave character, of course. Both narrators were new to me and I enjoyed both, but especially Tor Thom. Awesome radio voice! If you enjoy a light hearted book between something intense, this is perfect!

Funny, hot and sweet

"Your on the air with Vaughn, how can I get you off?", a line that is sure to make you smile if you hear that on the radio. Vaughn is a sex therapist with a radio show, you know, the one with the sexy voice and is incredibly good looking. His best friend, Haven, is also his right hand, keeping him organized and on the path to success. When Vaughn moves to NYC to go on a new radio station, Haven goes with him. And here is where everything changes. Stalking listeners, crazy cougars, protective new boyfriend, high ratings, hot sex, amazing chemistry, you name it and this couple experiences just about everything. The wonderful thing about this book, is that Madden has given these two the basis of friendship to build on. It's not instalove or a one night stand but years of getting to know each other and evolving as time goes on. Their story is one not to miss, and you will love Lizzie's analysis each time Vaughn needs some advice, it's always priceless. Shock Jock is a hot and funny and a must listen.

With Vaughn being a DJ, it is important to have the voice of someone who will fit the mold. The choice of Tor Thom for this role is spot on. With his deep, sexy baritone, Thom is the perfect fit for the radio persona and he easily switches to the emotional side of Vaughn off the air. Charley Ongel brings Haven out to be the strong, independent woman she is able to mask feelings as well as be sensual. The two create the ambiance around the story so harmoniously, you have to keep listening.

Audio is new to me.

This story was good. I was wanting a little more but it was enough to satisfy. I enjoyed the dual narration it was a little weird at first but then I got the swing of it. I hope to hear more from these narrators.

Awesome Story!

I really enjoyed listening to Shock Jock. Tor Thom & Charley Ongel did a wonderful job with the narration of the story. Shock Jock Vaughn Lair is a sex therapist in L.A. He gets a job offer in New York & takes it. Haven, his assistant, moves across country with him. They have been friends since college too. Vaughn thinks he has his life planned out just fine until he gets an on air call that changes everything. Then to add to the confuse, things between Haven & him get confusing. I loved this story from the start. There was so much laughter through out. Shock Jock is a must to listen to or read. I received a free code in exchange for an honest review. I would highly recommend listening to Shock Jock.

I love a good Friends to Lovers!

I really enjoyed this book. This was the first book I've "read" (listened to) by A.M. Madden and I'll have to read others! I love the idea of a radio sex therapist being able to give advice to others, but still have issues himself. I love Vaughn and Haven together. Navigating a new romance with your best friend who you work with also, gives all sorts of ways for drama to play out.
I didn't like that Haven hung back and at some parts she just seemed a bit ...not whiney... but, close - because of her insecurities (and secrets) moving into new territory with Vaughn. But, eventually it works itself out :)

This was my first narration from Tor Thom and Charley Ongel as well. Whew. Hot. I am a new fan of both of them. They both had several different characters that they voiced, and it was their talent shows when switching back and forth between characters. And, the timbre and growl of Tor's voice gives me goosebumps, I will be looking up more of his narrations!

Sizzling friends to lovers story

Vaughn is a shock jock radio sex therapist and Haven is his personal assistant that has worked for him for years. This is a story of enlightenment as two friends become lovers. This story is refreshingly funny, sexy, heartwarming, heart-wrenching, and passionate. It has a cougar, robbers, insecurities, hidden feelings, friends that give honest advice, hot passionate love, a betrayal of trust and a possible stalker.

Tor Thom and Charley Ongel nail this narration. Tor 's deep baritone voice is perfect for a radio personality. Charley captures the witty Haven as well as her passionate side. These two narrators make this a delightful and captivating story to listen to. I happily received this Audible book in exchange for an honest
review. I highly recommend this Audible book. It is such a fun book that also deals with two friends not wanting to hinder their friendship.
