Publisher's Summary

Toby

Is it wrong to be attracted to the groom in a wedding? Or, I thought he was the groom! No, this guy is open and single and...into me? Is he into me?

He'd be the first for quite some time. 

I have to admit, seeing all these weddings come and go can be a bit much when you go home all by yourself. But is it ethical to date a client's brother?

Hunter

He's such a snob, but I guess he's no worse than my sister. I'm always the one shoved around by everyone - but even him?

At least he understands when it's a case of mistaken identity. I certainly never said I was marrying my sister. That would be one screwed up situation, and besides, I'm not much for women anyway. 

Still, I've never met quite anyone like him. He's seen so much love, but he doesn't have any for himself. I wouldn't mind changing that. 

This mistaken identity book is steaming hot and ready for your eager ears. With no cheating and a HEA, you won't want to put this one down. Just make sure you are an adult, as this one is spicy!

Awesome Listen

The narrator is a perfect choice for this one. I absolutely loved the kindle version and had to add the audiobook. I’m glad I did. This truly comes to life digitally.

For Hallmark romance fans

I've stated in the general information above that this book is a standalone, but given how often Toby's gay brothers are mentioned, I'm starting to suspect that the author might write a book about each of them. As for Toby's book...

It's cutesy, it's corny when the characters flirt with each other, but in an enjoyable way.

I found myself smiling, even though it was a predictable sweet romance with some adult content frown in. I felt like Hunter's sister and Toby's assistant were underdeveloped and kind of just there to move the plot along, but if you like your books to be concentrated solely on the main characters instead of making you feel like they - and you along with them - are a part of a larger world, then I guess that wouldn't bother you.

Now for the audio part of the audiobook.

I've recently reviewed another also narrated by Randi Johnson and complained about the female roles, saying that it might be (at least partially) the author's fault as they didn't give the narrator much to work with. After listening to The Bride's Brother, I'm more convinced that that was the case since the women here sound better. However, the two male leads have very similar voices.

If you like Hallmark romances, then The Bride's Brother is something you'd probably enjoy.

Good story and good narration!

The story grabbed me from the start in a mellow kind of way and you just had to finish the story. The narrator was excellent and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the story. The conflict made sense and the resolution perfect. :-) I just feel sorry for the rich guy who ended up paying all the bills. Well, I suppose he could afford it. All in all, the MCs were very likable. The narration adds to the richness of the story and I did thoroughly enjoy it!

The storyline was ok!

This was an okay story. I was kind of surprised and a bit turned off with one of the MC’s, Hunter. I guess, going in, I wasn’t expecting him to be so spineless. I mean yeah, his sister was a total bridezilla. But I don’t think any sibling would have that deep of a fear about speaking their minds. Overall, the book seemed a little one dimension. There wasn’t very much depth.

Now, the nasties are out of the way. I did enjoy the storyline and I think with a bit more tweaking on the authors part, it could turn into an incredible book. The angst was very low, which is always a plus for me, and it was just a sweet read. Which I love. (Give me all of the sugar)

The narrator, Randi Johnson…

First and foremost, let’s just talk about his voice. He has a nice, smooth, sexy, and vibrant voice. I think he could sit and read me an encyclopedia and I wouldn’t get bored. It was hard at times to distinguish between characters because the tone, or volume was the same as the one before. But it wasn’t to the point that it bothered me. I don’t think his voice worked perfectly for this book. But I also believe that’s because of the characters themselves. Randi’s voice was so strong and sure, and those characters were just not.

Great book

Great story development between Hunter and Toby. Romance between a guy who’s afraid of relationships and a guy who’s afraid to come out of the closet. Great light read. Narration was also great. Although I just have a suggestion, maybe change the voices for the characters a little bit more so as to make them more distinguishable between each other. Hunter and Toby kinda sound the same. And maybe make the voice sound a little younger, the characters sound older than their supposed age.

Figuring things out can be so difficult.

Hunter's sister Julia becomes a bridezilla and Toby is her wedding planner. Hunter and Toby are attracted to each other but are keeping the relationship to themselves for different reasons. Hunter loves Toby but he's not out and Toby hates the way Julia speaks to Hunter and basically everyone and no one stands up to her. She then fires him for standing up to her. This leads to some deep soul searching for both men and after much talking and working things out they get their HEA with an awesome surprise ending. The narration for this book is perfect.

learning to be yourself

Toby is wedding planner. When the "groom" of the wedding he's working on hits on him, he is irate. Only to discover it's actually the brides brother. As they navigate a new relationship Hunter has to face some hard truths. He is a people pleaser and needs to decide if he's going to stand up and fight for his relationship. Hunter is aggravating at points, but you feel for him.

Narration was good, though there were a few times I had trouble differentiating voices. Its a sweet story that is worth a listen

cute!

this story was adorable! The beginning, their first meeting, hilarious. this is the second book I've listened to by this narrator, and I like this one, his work, better than I did in the other one. He's got a very nice sound to his voice, and it just feels familiar. Overall I really liked both the story and the performance

What a cute story!

This was beyond adorable. It involves a romance between a wedding planner and the brother of the bride that hired said wedding planner. There was a delightful mix up in the beginning that was hilarious. Once the two started “dating,” the story seemed to progress quickly from there. I was super surprised by the ending, but loved it nonetheless. Overall, a cute story that wasn’t weighed down with the angst it did have. Both main characters made mistakes, but they worked through it and none were overly-frustrating like a lot of stories I’ve encountered. Just...adorable. Gah, such a cute story.

Another great performance by Randi Johnson. It was harder to discern the voices between both main characters, but not enough to ding him a star for. I was able to follow the story just fine either way.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Brilliant

I really thought this was a brilliant book and I enjoyed listening to how Toby and Hunter met and the misunderstanding that happening at the beginning and then following them through their relationship with the ups and down while planning Hunter’s sister’s wedding there is a fun twist at the end.

Enjoyable - Liked the Writing - Loved the Narrator

There are times when I found one of the MCs really annoying, but although the book is about her wedding, the majority of the action happens between her brother and her wedding planner. This is my first exposure to JP Oliver and I enjoyed his writing.
What I enjoyed most was the narration. I've listened to Randi Johnson before and I can hear the improvement in every book. I can't wait to hear more of his work.

What a delightful Story!

The Bride’s Brother by J.P. Oliver
Narrated by Randi Johnson
Five Stars

This book was so charming and funny, A Real Feel Good Romance! Hunter and Toby just fit together, and Julia brought the story full circle. I love when a book makes me laugh out loud and this book fit the bill. The storyline was light the sex was hot. And it was the perfect pick me up from the book funk I was in!
This was the first book I listed to by Randi Johnson, and but I’m adding him to my must listen to list. He really brought the characters to life.
This is a wonderful book that I would highly recommend to either read or listen to.

falling for brides brother

I thought the story was good. It was a great plot. a wedding planner falls in love with the Brides brother. upon first meeting, thought it was the groom. The story seemed a bit focused on the bride and her wedding more so in the first half of the book. Sure it sprinkled the MM love in there.
The story had angst, some love, some cute little things. In my opinion the story could have delve deeper with Toby and Hunter.
The narrator is a first for me. His voice was ok, soothing. I did have a hard time distinguishing between characters. He didnt change his range or vocals for characters. It felt like he just read the book out loud. No feelings, rushing it along. The chapters didnt break much either. I trudged on as I wanted to hear how the love story played out.

Good Listen

Toby the wedding planner is attracted to the bride's brother, Hunter who is not openly gay. They start a relationship but Toby soon learns that Hunter is a pushover when it comes to his family especially his sister Julia whose only concern with her wedding is that its expensive and lavish. They argue and Toby is fired. Hunter must now man up and face his family to get the man he loves back. Good Narration.

Sweet story!

This was surprisingly good!! I’m not always a fan of MM stories. Mostly because they can be cold and clinical. JP Oliver did a great job telling Hunter and Toby’s story, and I truly enjoyed listening to it.
