Publisher's Summary

Weber Yates's dreams of stardom are about to be reduced to a ranch hand's job in Texas, and his one relationship is with a guy so far out of his league he might as well be on the moon. Or at least in San Francisco, where Weber stops to see him one last time before settling down to the humble, lonely life he figures a frog like him has coming.

Cyrus Benning is a successful neurosurgeon, so details are never lost on him. He spotted the prince in a broken-down bull rider's clothing from day one. But watching Weber walk out on him keeps getting harder, and he's not sure how much more his heart can take. Now Cyrus has one last chance to prove to Weber that it's not Weber's job that makes him Cyrus's perfect man, it's Weber himself. With the help of his sister's newly broken family, he's ready to show Weber that the home the man's been searching for has always been right there, with him. Cyrus might have laid down an ultimatum once, but now it's turned into a vow - he's never going to let Weber out of his life again.

    "Sexy and romantic"

    The narrators accent and slow delivery was perfect for the kindly cowboy who finds that even a family in the middle of the city can both love and need him. Although there's plenty of humour and sex, the whole book is very gentle, making it a challenge for the reader to get pace and vocal variety into the final chapters. I've listened to it a couple of times, and really enjoyed it.

    "Nice fluffy story about family, bit sugary"

    This is a lovely story, but I have to admit that the way everybody around Cyrus, and I mean everybody, falls for Web immediately and thinks he’s the best person in the world, began to grate a bit after a while. It’s all a bit too wonderful (and I do like fluff and sweetness). Still, it is a nice feel-good story. It is heavy on the family/kids stuff, which is probably great if you’re into that. It’s not so much my priority. The sex scene right at the beginning is a bit rough, but that's not what the rest of the book is about.

    I like Web as a character very much, with his old-fashioned polite manners, and Cyrus is ok too. The other family members make a nice background to the story, which is in essence mostly about Weber and how he feels about himself, his self-worth and the way he thinks Cyrus looks at him. We hear the story from Weber’s POV (first person narrative).

    The narrator totally makes it for me. He speaks very calmly, which I like. The accent and voice he uses for Web are sexy and, well, sweet. In general I prefer British voices, but I have come to appreciate American narrators more since subscribing to Audible. And K.C. Kelly’s deep ‘cowboy voice’ (is it a Texan accent? Southern at any rate) is great to listen to- in fact the fragment persuaded me to buy this audiobook. He doesn’t really do a lot of very distinctive voices in the story like some narrators do, but I don’t mind that.
    I have purchased a few more books he narrates and am looking forward to them.

    "One of my favorite books but audiobook was awful"
    Would you try another book from Mary Calmes and/or K.C. Kelly?

    I have a Calmes addiction, but the narration was almost intolerable.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Frog?

    I love the opening chapter, with the MCs making contact with each other after a long separation, and some background information interwoven into that conversation.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator's accent and interpretation of Weber was way over the top. It made the character seem older and dumber than he actually is.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Frog?

    Not a thing, it's one of my favorite books.


    Any additional comments?

    After waiting so long for this to come out on audio, I'm really disappointed. I managed to listen to it all the way through, but I expect I won't ever listen to it again.

    "Ah Weber, if only . . ."

    I loved this book when I read it and K.C. Kelly really brought it too life. This is the story of a ongoing romance between a wandering, bull riding cowboy with no family and no home, but a heart of gold, and a San Francisco neurosurgeon that loves him unconditionally. The story is told from Weber's (cowboy) POV and is basically about his journey of self discovery. Not him struggling with being gay, but failing to see his own self worth. It is really beautiful and the narrator does an excellent job. Definitely worth a credit.

    Story
    "Sweet Feel-Good M/M Romance with a Southern Drawl"

    It really deserves that extra ½♥. Really mello but still touching and hot m/m romance. Pride can be such a tricky bitch, keeping those lovers apart. It was an easy read over an afternoon, and really sweet.

    The narrator has a lovely Southern drawl that was very appealing and easy on the ears. I thought he was a wonderful choice for Webber. Being from the South, I must say it worked well for me; I found it believable and more than comfortable to listen to. Like a tall glass of sweet iced tea on a hot day- only for my ears. OK, that's kind of a strange analogy, isn't it?

    The only thing I wanted a little more of, and this may seem odd... but adversity. I suppose it's part of Webber's draw is that he can charm the pants of anyone... well, sort of, but there was a shit ton of acceptance going on. I hope that the world is filled with such loving, open-minded people out there, but deep down I found that hard to really believe that. But then again- this is fiction, suspension of disbelief and all that. It flirted with almost being 'too much' acceptance, but never quite crossed that line (it toed it, though).

    This will most definitely be a re-read, it was just too easy to suck it down in a single afternoon.

    Yes, I have read this story too many times to count! Now, the audio is available and as good as the story. Perfect narrator for the characters.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Weber!


    What does K.C. Kelly bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voice is perfect for the retired Weber. He did a great job!


    Who was the most memorable character of Frog and why?

    Always Weber and the kids!

    "Incredibly heartwarming story!"

    Incredibly heartwarming story. The story and the performance make beautiful poetry in this audio book. Frog is now one of my favorites and I cant wait to listen to it again. There are beautiful scenes that made me want to cry and laugh at the same time. The emotional parts are beautifully balanced with humor and wit. The story is carried in what is not written as well as what is written (the story between and beyond the lines). Incredibly well written matched by an incredible performance. Mr. Kelly's performance was perfect for this story.

    "Loved it"
    Where does Frog rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Up there with the audible books I keep returning too because it make me smile and laugh with the characters of the story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Frog?

    When Webber finally realize his love and worth to not only Cyrus but to Cyrus' family but most of all to his self and definitely the musical.


    What about K.C. Kelly’s performance did you like?

    I like K. C. Kelly's performance because you could tell each character in the story without all the fake voices some performers do.


    Who was the most memorable character of Frog and why?

    I can't say one because I love several characters in this story from the 2 main characters to the kids, to the sister etc


    Any additional comments?

    I have yet to listen to a story by Mary Calmes that I didn't like GOOD JOB

    "loved this sweet and sexy story"
    Where does Frog rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    it was very good. good enough that I immediately went searching for more audiobooks by Mary Calmes. I'm looking forward to hearing more of her sexy stories. I laughed and cried and loved these characters.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Frog?

    after the performance when Cyrus was feeling insecure...that was my favorite part. I loved how Weber reprioritized him to meet his needs. So sweet.


    What about K.C. Kelly’s performance did you like?

    He did a good job. He was a little old for the role. I'd guess he's in his 60s and the characters are in their 40s...so that could have been cast better. But he did a good job. ;-)


    If you could take any character from Frog out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Weber. Lots of interesting stories to tell...
