Publisher's Summary

Volumes one, two, and three of the Upending Tad series.

Loser Takes All

Tad's weekend started out like any other; hitting a college frat party with a handful of buddies. But just as the evening hits its peak, things get up-ended fast. Ditched by his drunken, trolling friends, Tad winds up getting hustled by three jocks playing poker. Now, he's forced to pay his dues in the most outlandish of ways by spending an hour with his victors' favorite flogger, Scott. But the guy's tantalizing torture quickly proves to be the least of Tad's worries and the kickoff to a night of raw, shocking lust. Experience the graphic, minute-by-minute account of that hour spent at the hands of Tad's insatiable tormentor. Addicting chemistry lights the stage as Scott ignites Tad's reluctant desires into a frenzy of forbidden need.

Test of Endurance

The last time Tad saw Scott, the ripped physical trainer left him with quite a lot to think about. At his wit's end, he seeks Scott out, voluntarily, on his own terms. Will the completely different setting offer what he's seeking; proof that their exchange's unexpected turn was just a random mishap? Or will being in Scott's presence suggest something different....

Sideline Submission

Round two with Scott hadn't been what Tad expected, but it did end up providing a few important realizations. That crazy first encounter was definitely more than mere male hormones. Which meant he felt a true attraction to the guy. Something that explained his defenselessness against Scott's smoldering charms. So Tad had resolved to cope with his findings the only logical way he knew how: purge the guy from his system by staying away for good. Unfortunately, that proved way more uncomfortable than he'd anticipated. So when Scott unexpectedly seeks him out, Tad's too drained to fight his turmoil any longer. He agrees to hang out, not knowing Dom boy Max will end up part of the deal.

Warning: Erotic romance. Contains explicit gay sex. Intended for mature audiences.

hot as hell

oh my God what was that?!
every book in this bundle was absolutely hot! 🔥
the story itself was particular....
it did disturb me a little... but the beginning only. afterwards it was so hot, that you couldn't stop listen to it.
I loved the inner conflict of Thad very much ....
it's very difficult to accept who you are ..when you're thinking so much about what others would think ....
or if you could accept yourself without the surroundings....
it's a very particular bundle of books I want and need to listen to the other books....
and not only the main characters intrigued me... some little redhead intrigued me as well... well not too little 😜😜😜

awesome

I liked that when Tad lost at cards he actually won, but he didn't realize it right away. The first book was an erotic venture intro into BDSM for Tad and I thoroughly loved it. I liked seeing the bond starting between Scott an Tad. In book two I loved hearing Tad trying to convince himself he's straight, but he's still drawn to Scott. Book three Tad's inner struggle continues. I totally enjoyed the voyeur room experience. My caliente! I love that Tad is starting to come to terms with his sexuality. I can't wait to continue this series and watch the relationship develop. I voluntarily listened to an audible of this bundle and am giving my honest opinion. Totally loved it.

At last!

I loved these books when I read them - so much so that I immediately turned around and read them again, which is a rarity for me. I campaigned to get these on audio, so I am THRILLED that they finally are.

Michael Pauley did a fantastic job bringing Tad and Scott to life. My trips to the store suddenly got MUCH more interesting now that I have these to listen to!

great narration

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend because the story is entertaining. The narration fits the story.

What did you like best about this story?

I like the story- the romance aspect of it. I like the way the story builds.

What about Michael Pauley’s performance did you like?

Sometimes Michael Pauley can be hit or miss for me because I think his voice fits some stories better than others. I didn't think I would like him for this book but I was pleasantly surprised.

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

A Journey of Erotic Discovery is perfect as is.

Any additional comments?

None.

Super Freaking Hot

Holy Sh*t. If you looked up hot in the dictionary you’d find this book, if you looked up sexy you’d find this book, and the same with the word erotic. ................. sorry needed a cold shower lol. Behind all the hot, steamy, and explicit sex scenes is a really good storyline. A guy finding his way when he becomes sexual attraction to another guy, for the first time.

I was hooked from page one. The sex scenes are long and explicit, but oh how they added to the story and increased my body temperature. Can’t wait to start the next bundle. Oh and I’m new to this author, but I have a feeling I’ll be searching other books to read.

We should never forget to give credit to the narrator too. Michael Pauley is incredible. Like he brings the books to a whole another level. If your reading a book that’s maybe a 4 star book, he alone will bump it to a five, he makes it so much better. I actually discovered these books because I was searching other books narrated by him specifically. He just reads with so much passion. He actually makes me feel like I’m right there in the story too.

I highly recommend this book if you like M/M erotic books.

Smoking 🔥🔥

I.... um..... wow... these stories were so hot, I don’t even know where to start! Upending tad is exactly like it States, an erotic tales of self discovery. As hot as this book is , there’s still a blooming romance and I need the next book like now. The last volume had all the feels! Upending tad was really good. Michael Pauley as usual nails it. He’s narration makes the book so much hotter 😍😍

Awesome Bundle

This is a spectacularly hot and sexy bundle of the first 3 installments of Upending Tad. Scott and Tad are wonderful characters and I love them together and watching their journey. From the first installment where Tad begins his journey into BDSM with Scott, to volume 2 where Tad is inexplicably drawn to Scott even though he believes himself to be totally straight, to volume 3, where Tad continues to struggle with his identity and his attraction to Scott. I'm really looking forward to the rest of this series and see how Tad and Scott continue on from here!
Michael Pauley is just total perfection! The way he does the voices and all the emotion he puts into the story is AMAZING!!

***You will be left upended for sure ...

Here's my breakdown for Upending Tad bundle: Volumes 1, 2, 3 ....

Performance (5 stars): I'll literally listen to anything narrated by Michael Pauley. He could read the obituaries for all I care and my panties will still melt at that voice; I don't know, I might just be really weird but that's the God honest truth.

Story (3 stars): This is were I'm sort of conflicted. I love self discovery stories because it gives you the chance to be on this journeys with the main character that you would probably not take yourself but will always remember. In Tad's journey, which didn't really start on his terms, it was discovering his sudden growing fascination with this guy, Scott, and the whole BDSM scene. I've tackled in a little bit of BDSM (all soft play) and have nothing against it however, this is the part where I say SPOILER ALERT AHEAD because I feel like I must warn you, after reading volume one, I was left feeling that Tad might have actually been unknowingly raped? Some might see it as rape and other might see it as choice; it's very difficult for me to explain how this was written so I'll try my best to explain, thus the spoiler alert part. Now, I say might have been unknowingly raped because one, when he lost a bet with these three big frat guys in a card game, he was given two choices: get his butt beat by them, resulting in broken bones and bruises, or being flogged by the neighborhood's BDSM guy. Tad, non the wiser, chose the flogging, because kink sounded better than broken bones (I would have chosen this too). When he arrives, Scott greets him (by the way, not the neighborhood BDSM guy, just a stand in for his roommate Max, the actual BDSM guy) and he apologetically lets Tad know he's interested in more than just being hired to flog Tad because he lost a bet. Any who, fast forward just a bit and one thing leads to another and we're left with a very exhausted, very very horny, and very blue-balled Tad, who then agrees to gives up his virgin butt to Scott in order to get everything over with (in this case, the moment Tad is propositioned and I was a straight male who lost a bet and chose the flogging but was not wanting to get butt f*cked, I would have been like no I'm leaving and then I would leave, call the cops and report the three frat guys who threaten to beat me up), but I guess Tad felt that he needed to prove a point? Needed this night to be over with? Or simply he just really needed to cum very bad that sex with a guy one time wouldn't hurt, plus he was promised relief so he gave in just this one time. When in Rome and all right? Now, judgments aside people, open your mind and know that you have to listen (or read) till the very end because we all interpret situations differently. In this case, the naive, and sober might I add, Tad acted stupid (that's right, I think he was too cocky in thinking he was a better card player and stupid for not reporting that he'd been threaten bodily harm or at least let it be known of what was going on BUT although he acted stupid, he was not weak. I read how rape victims are labeled weak for not speaking up and I strongly disagree. Rape victims are survivors; it takes a lot of courage to endure and over come something like that and when Tad was being threaten, I felt like he was under pressure, and I know from experience that when some people are under pressure, certain inner demons come to life and take over our minds and with that, his mind was telling him not to be a pu**y and just get it over with instead of saying hey, you do realize you're engaging in consensual sex that you do not like because you're straight and just want to hurry up and blow your load? Thus my unknowingly part?). Maybe I'm over thinking, or saying all the wrong things, and I don't want to offend anyone, those are not my intentions, but that's how I understood it in my mind. As much as I disliked how convincing, and smooth, and sexy, and honest, and trusting Scott is (he had me wanting it soooo), please give volume one a shot. I promise that it's just as hot as Scott and Tad's chemistry (yes there is a hint of some kind of endearing chemistry between the two) and even laughable moments, minus your gut sinking at the end....that was my first heavy review to be honest; so lets make it better with my review of volume two, because when Scott discovers that Tad wasn't a "closet case" (what the frat guys told Scott) and that the frat guys threatened Tad with bodily harm, guilt filled him, along with rage that took revenge in his own hands because Scott was NOT told that Tad was in fact straight not in the closet and that his only other option was getting beaten up by the three frat guys. So yeah, let that sink in. Jeez I didn't think my review was going to be this long....

Overall (4 stars): It's safe to say that by the end of volume three, you're going to want to get volumes 4, 5, and 6 to find out what happens between Scott and Tad because this self discovery, has taken a 180 and I cannot wait to finish their story. Packed with erotica, hot sex, and comical banter between two unlikely guys who seem to just now started to discover themselves. Michael Pauley, like always, delivers that sexy baritone voice for Scott and that uncertain/even voice for Tad. With Michael Pauley, you won't need dual narration because he got it covered.

Can't wait to read the rest of the books and see what happens between Scott and Tad hoping Tad admits that he loves Scott and can't be without him.

Kora Knight & Michael Pauley? YES PLEASE!

The audiobook edition of Up-ending Tad, Bundle 1 by Kora Knight includes the first three stories of Up-ending Tad: A Journey of Erotic Discovery #1-3 and is read by Michael Pauley. If you enjoyed reading this series as I did, then you’ve got to give the audio version a try. If you’re prepared to have your mind blown, then by all means dive right in!

Hot, hot, smokin’ hot, and if I haven’t stressed it enough, this story is HOT. This is erotica of the finest quality; add in adorable way these two guys fall for each other, and Up-ending Tad is one of the most enjoyable series out there.

Kora Knight has these two characters down. Both guys are kinda macho, and when they get all nervous, “gosh, does he really like me?” my heart just melts. Scott’s seduction and Tad’s acquiesce work perfectly together, and I was rooting for them from the get-go.

One of my all time favorite narrators, I never doubted that Michael Pauley was going to rock this one. There’s a reason I call him a virtuoso of erotica, he adds more to a love scene than anyone else I know. Pauley has a keen ability to really understand the characters and where a story is going. He doesn’t over-act, just keeps it sexy and builds the tension sloooowly till it reaches the inevitable pinnacle we’re all waiting for.

There’s so much to love about the audiobook version of Up-ending Tad. This is pure down and dirty erotica, with the sweetest gay-for-you romance blended in. Whether you’re a fan of the books like I am, or discovering this series for the first time, the combination of Kora Knight’s beautiful writing and Michael Pauley’s gorgeous voice is going to give you hours of pleasure.

Good and hot!

For anyone hesitant about D/S relationships, this is great book to get your toes (and anything else *wink* ) wet!
The subtitle Erotic Adventures is apt, but does not do it justice. The story shows Tad's and Scott's journey from pure sex to a stronger bond between them. The narration is really, really good with conveying the attraction and emotions of both men. Highly recommended.
I received a copy with no obligation to leave a review. The above commnts are my own.

Tad is confused I mean he doesn't like guys, right? so why can't he get Scott out of his head?
after a gamble loss Tad has two choices , get beaten or be flogged, but what he doesn't expect is the experience that's thrust upon him after he's made his choice, this bundle was brilliant It had everything 2 hot as hell dudes and some crazy sexy experiences, an absolute must listen for sure
