Do you believe in love at first sight? Sanford Stewart sure doesn't. In fact, he pretty much believes in the exact opposite, thanks to the Homo Jock King. It seems Darren Mayne lives for nothing more than to create chaos in Sandy's perfectly ordered life, just for the hell of it. Sandy despises him, and nothing will ever change his mind. Or so he tells himself.

Mr. Michael Lesley really pulled all the stops when voicing these characters. The range of emotions was done beautifully and his comedic timing was spot.
Perfect choice for such a beautiful book!

Do you believe in love at first sight? Paul Auster doesn't. Paul doesn't believe in much at all. He's thirty, slightly overweight, and his best features are his acerbic wit and the color commentary he provides as life passes him by. His closest friends are a two-legged dog named Wheels and a quasibipolar drag queen named Helena Handbasket. He works a dead-end job in a soul-sucking cubicle, and if his grandmother's homophobic parrot insults him one more time, Paul is going to wring its stupid neck.

Michael Lesley is simply amazing as a narrator. The story dragged in parts as the main character's train of thought got derailed quite easily, but it added charm to the book itself.
It had moments that made me laugh out loud, choke and squirt coffee out of my nose, and parts that made it really difficult to read this in public due to the unladylike guphaws. But there were also moments that broke my heart and it was in these final parts of the book where the narrator really shone with his voice drenched in motion.
Will definitely listen to this again!

Ben Rivers always was a showman. He won awards in 4-H and rodeo competitions from the time he could walk, and he’s happiest in the spotlight. So when he got the chance to be a star - in porn - he took it. He still loves Montana and everything about being a cowboy, but when news of his alternate identity leaks out, he figures he’s lost the town’s goodwill forever. Clyde’s Corner would never accept an openly gay cowboy, even a hometown boy born and bred.

Really enjoyed this book, the narrator really nailed the two main character's voices. As Joshua, he managed to deliver the struggle to put his thoughts into words, and as Ben, the middle point between innocent and sensual young-man-who-got-away.
Would have been 5 stars if it were just a bit longer and showed a bit more about the characters in the background, namely Chet and the other cowboys.

Gustavo Tiberius is not normal. He knows this. Everyone in his small town of Abby, Oregon, knows this. He reads encyclopedias every night before bed. He has a pet ferret called Harry S. Truman. He owns a video rental store that no one goes to. His closest friends are a lady named Lottie with drag queen hair and a trio of elderly Vespa riders known as the We Three Queens.

Absolutely loved it, couldn't stop myself listening to this very compelling story.
The narrator was on point to pull off all these diverse characters. My favorite parts were involving the recorded calls and both Mitzi and Mytzy. Also, whenever Gus was going 'what the hell' and 'oh my god' which he does quite a bit.

A lonely gay teen bides his time with trips to strangers' funerals and Ouija board sessions, desperately searching for someone to love - and a reason to live following a suicide attempt. Walking an empty stretch of New Jersey highway on an autumn night, he meets a strange and beautiful boy who looks like he stepped out of a dream. But the vision becomes into a nightmare when the boy turns out to be the local urban legend, the ghost of a star athlete killed in 1957.

Originally, I was looking for something new to listen to and having heard another narration by Mr Frazier, I decided to give this a go. It was a fantastic idea, the internal monologue was amazing as his voice was soft and gentle as a whisper. All the diverse voices were very good, specially the little girl ghost. Definitely scary and thus perfect for the mood of the book. The steamy parts were few but perfect through Frazier's sexy voice.
