Audio review.

I absolutely loved this book in print so I was super excited for the audio book. I was a little nervous of the sheer number of characters and dogs in this book and how Sean Lenhart would manage to pull it off. I shouldn’t have worried though Sean was as usual a wonderful narrator and he was joined for this audiobook by narrator Jill Smith! Which was awesome and definitely adds another layer of authenticity to this story. They seamlessly narrate together and it’s beautiful and fluid and engaging.

This is book 2.5 in the Moore Romance series. I’ve absolutely loved this series and this one is just as good. It’s absolutely fantastic! Sweet, laugh out loud funny and full of love. This book is basically a catch up with 6 of the characters from the other books and 6 of their pets. As with the print version I just adored the pets POV chapters, so original and absolutely laugh out loud hilarious! As an animal lover I reallllyyyy enjoyed their chapters.

The main focus of this book is Jackson and Dean finding their brother and moving in with him and also about Julian and Xander planning their wedding. I won't spoil what happens with Jackson and Dean but reading about Xander and Julian's wedding was brilliant, they are continuing to bicker over the wedding arrangements and all their family and friends naturally wade in and get involved. There is at one point a group chat scene which is completely confusingly hilarious and was really well done in audio.

Loved this audiobook and I absolutely cannot wait for book 3!

Xander Griffith is a math geek with an eye for designer labels, a love of photography, and a fierce need to protect those he loves. He was mesmerized by Julian the moment he laid eyes on him: gorgeous, brilliant, and unabashedly himself. But Julian is also his friend's off-limits baby brother. So Xander spends the next three years distancing himself, focusing his energy on his math-letic friends, his boxer Cassius, and his LGBT youth center, Safe Harbor.

I absolutely adored this book in audio! I fell in love with this series last year and I’m loving listening to them in audio format. This is book two in the Moore Romance series and just as light hearted and funny as book one, I actually preferred this book to book one in audio if that’s even possible! That’s all down to Sean Lenhart and his amazing narration and in particular his narration of Julian!.

This book centres around Julian Moore and Xander Griffith who we first meet in book one. Julian is absolutely amazing and I loved his attitude and outlook on life, he is down right fabulous, out and proud and just damn well owns it. These two meet in a gay club where they have instant chemistry but once Xander realises Julian is Greg's 21 year old little brother he instantly drops him off at his parents house and tries to forget about him.

Fast forward three years later and Julian and Xander are constantly bickering and antagonising each other to mask their feelings. Julian ends up moving in with Xander to try and cope with his depression and they can no longer ignore their insane chemistry and they end up growing ever closer and falling in love. As with the first book this one is also very funny and had me laughing out loud throughout. I loved that even when their relationship deepened Xander continued to call Julian 'Brat' albeit in a more loving manner and Julian continued to call Xander Iceman (Top Gun reference!). The puns involving Julian's surname Moore were endless and I loved the 'baby koala' hugging!

As with book one there's lots of dogs featured in this book and one hilarious doggy tea party thrown by Julian. Love the secondary characters in this story and it was lovely to catch up with all of them from book one and meet some new ones too. Massive applause for Sean Lenhart and his impressive ability to seamlessly alter his voice for all the different characters.

One of my favourite audiobooks to date and a very sweet and funny read. Cannot wait to listen to the next one!

Logan Moore is finally ready to come out of the closet. His days of playing football are far behind him, he has graduated from the Culinary Institute of America (CIA), and his bakery, Moore Delicious, is finally in the black. Although he spends more time talking to his cats than he does people, he technically has time for a social life now that he has hired two new employees. In short, Logan is completely out of excuses to stay in the closet, where it is warm and cozy and he never has to worry about how to dress, what to say, or who is watching.

I adored this book when I first read it and it was excellent in audio format! It’s just so god damn funny! Sean Lenhart is not a narrator I was previously familiar with but I just loved his voice right from page 1 and his narration style was wonderful.

The actual storyline was not particularly original on paper. Logan Moore who used to play football and was a typical jock in college until an injury led him to decide to go to culinary school instead and Chance Blevins his older brothers fiancés best friend have had a crush on each other for 5 years and when Logan decides to come out of the closet he enlists the help of Chance. However, what made this book truly stand out was how beautifully it was written and how well this translated in to audio and how laugh out loud funny it was throughout.

I just loved Chance and Logan, dual POV really helped in audio to show how they felt about each other and their chemistry was just so believable. There were several elements that could have been irritating such as Chance believing Logan was a spy due to a misunderstanding when they met whereby he believed Logan to be in the CIA when he in fact went to the Culinary Institute of America and a pretty major stalker issue but both were not dragged out or filled with unnecessary misunderstanding or angst.

There were times when I just wanted to bang both of their heads together and I wished they would just communicate better but it all added to the realism and believability. The secondary characters in this book were fantastic, there were loads of them but they were so well developed and each one added another layer to this story. Sean Lenhart seamlessly switched his voice between the many characters in this book which made it really immersive.

I loved it when Chance and Logan 'geeked out' and their text messages to each other were down right hilarious. I loved their pets and that one of their friends was crocheting head pieces for them. The epilogue was lovely, I love it when it is 5 years down the line and not just a few weeks or months so you get to see how their lives have truly worked out.

Cannot wait to listen to the next book in this series!

5 stars for book 9 in the THIRDS audio series. This is Seb and Hudson's story. Mark Westfield is yet again an exceptional narrator and really gave this story another dimension. I just love the way he speaks and could listen to him all day.

7 years a go Seb and Hudson were in a happy relationship. Seb had marked Hudson as his mate and was planning to ask Hudson to marry him. On the day he planned to ask him a rogue shooter aimed fire at Hudson and Seb jumped in to save him which resulted in the tragic death of a young boy. This brought in to question their ability to work together within THIRDS as bonded mates and it cost Seb his position in Destructive Delta which led to his subsequent transfer to another team and also cost them their relationship.

7 years later and these two are still separated due to the grief from that day but also Hudson's insane stubborn-ness. Through the first 50% of this story I just wanted to shake them both particularly Hudson but they do eventually find their way back to each other and then things move quite quickly from there!

As with all the THIRDS books there is plenty of action and drama and plenty of love! Seb is so sweet and I loved how he unconditionally looks out for and loves Hudson even when they're not together. I loved catching up with all the characters from the other books in this story. You really shouldn't listen to these books on their own, they need to be read in order to make the most of this brilliant world and all the characters that have been created.

Cannot wait for the next audio book instalment in this fabulous series!

This book is outstanding. But what it’s NOT is a light, fluffy, easy read. It is raw, brutal, honest and beautifully , accurately written. As a Health Care Professional myself I must applaud Melanie for her accurate and honest portrayal of bipolar disorder and the intricate ways it can effect both the patient and those who love them. Seriously, well done. 5+ stars.

This is the story of Loren (who we meet in book 2) and Eliot. I listened to this book in audio which added another layer to the emotional and at times heartbreaking story. Now if you’ve read my previous audio reviews for this series you’ll know I just couldn’t connect with the previous narrator but this book has a different one Michael Stellman and THANK GOD. Because of the angst and emotion in this story Michael conveyed this in an excellent way and I really fell in love with his narration style. I will say though, if you are feeling slightly emotional anyway or you or some one you know suffer from some of the issues raised in this book I’d probably recommend getting the print version not the audio as it’s very immersive this way and I imagine would be more upsetting to some.

Loren and Eliot meet as kids when Elliot moves in next door. Loren’s Mum encourages him to go and say Hey to the new kid. Right from the very first time they meet Loren notices something special about Eliot. He’s hyper and talking a mile a minute and is obsessed with the moon and they instantly become best friends. As they grow up Loren continues to adore Eliot but his increasing ‘weirdness’ (Loren’s word) starts to concern him. Eliot starts drinking and taking drugs and his behaviour becomes increasingly erratic. He expresses his concerns to Eliot’s Mum who is a doctor herself who brushes him off. There’s a big incident in their senior year which leads to the two of them going their separate ways.

They meet again years later when Loren who is now a police officer is working a case in Arizona and meets an informant in a seedy strip club. He cannot believe his eyes when ‘Angel’ the stripper on stage is his Elliot. Elliot who has now formally been diagnosed with rapid-cycling bipolar 1 disorder comorbid with anxiety. He’s off his meds and self medicating with alcohol. In this current state he doesn’t even recognise Loren. Loren pays a visit to Elliot’s Mum who is also living in Arizona. She has done everything she feels she could to try and help Elliot and his Dad walked out and left them some point a long the way because he couldn’t cope with his sons illness.

Loren can’t help but be drawn to Eliot even after all these years. They strike up a tentative friendship which eventually leads to more. But this is not a lovey-dovey hearts and flowers book. It’s about Eliot’s continued deteriorating mental health and Loren trying to support him whilst keeping up with the increasing demands of a new and stressful job, unfortunately trying to further his career and help Eliot with his recovery are just not compatible and Eliot ends up in the psychiatric hospital many times throughout this book. It’s mainly told from Loren’s perspective but there are chapters told from Eliot’s which are frankly amazing. These chapters are exceptionally well written and I think it’s very important to get a true glimpse in to the mind of someone trying to deal with their bipolar disorder.

Secondary characters are excellent in this book and really well developed. I love Eliot’s homeless friends that he cares for, the medical professionals and patients at the psychiatric hospital are also excellent and I want to give a particular shout out to married couple Traci and Donovan who run the friends and family session at the hospital, she’s bipolar and he’s not and I fell in love with her the moment she deemed people who struggle with mental health issues ‘mentally interesting people’. Love her. We also get to catch up with the characters from the other books which was awesome.

The ending was absolutely perfect for this book. Again it was not all rainbows and sunshine. It’s set three years later and they both reflect back on Eliot’s ongoing struggles with his condition. We also get to catch up with the other characters and what they are up to.

As I said at the beginning of this review this book is truly outstanding made all the better for listening to it in audio!

I loved book one in this series and I'd go as far as saying this one is even better! Again I'm not totally sold on Robert Nieman as a narrator but the overall story is so gripping I just stopped noticing his lack of voice changes in the end.

This book has a very emotional and harrowing start. Jeremy and his husband are trying to cope day by day with Brent's crippling depression whilst also preparing for the imminent arrival of their baby boy via surrogate. In one devastating month Jeremy loses both his husband and his unborn child. This section of the book was exceptionally well written. In audio it had the added depth of hearing the emotion and it really added another layer to the experience.

Kai had a tough life growing up. He made some bad choices and ended up spending a couple of years in Juvie. He's now working as a teacher at a school for children that have failed out of mainstream education and he's so passionate about it. The two first meet on a night out in Portland at a gay club where frankly Jeremy's behaviour was disgusting but thankfully he does realise this straight away.

Their paths cross again back home and thy develop a tentative friendship that with their chemistry eventually leads to more. Jeremy wants to keep Kai firmly in the casual bracket initially but finds himself developing deeper feelings for him. There's plenty of issues for them to work through including Jeremy's irrational fear for Kai's safety when he's driving and Kai keeping things from Jeremy to try and protect him.

Kai's best friend Loren has a big part in this book. Kai and Loren are co dependent in a rather unhealthy way. Loren relies on Kai physically and Kai relies on Loren emotionally and they both eventually accept they need to break the cycle. Seriously cannot wait for Loren's book!

A fabulous story and audiobook. Robert the narrator is marginally growing on me as I get used to him. On to book 3!

AUDIO REVIEW

Ok, I'm giving this book 5 stars because it's awesome but there's a few things I want to discuss. I didn't have any major issues with Robert Nieman the narrator as such but I just found his narration style a little .... un animated I guess?! All the characters sounded the same to me and there wasn't a lot of passion in his voice. But he spoke clearly and I guess that's all you actually need from a narrator but I think having listened to a lot of other fantastic narrators maybe I've been a little spoiled. I don't know. This being an audio review I then feel confused whether to rate it 5 stars or lower but then I remember how freaking awesome the story is and it's definitely staying a firm 5 from me.

The basic storyline for this book is not overly original and has certainly been covered before in MM let alone romance overall but the beautiful writing style, flashback memories and fabulously well developed MCs truly make this book superb. This is the story of Carey and Jase. Carey is a former Marine and Jase was in the same unit as a medic. An insurgent attack leaves Carey missing the lower part of his leg and Jase with PTSD.

Jase has always been in love with Carey and is openly bisexual. Carey has always been close to Jase but never realised his feelings were anything other than platonic until Carey comes to stay with Jase for a couple of weeks. The flashback scenes are spectacular and written so well, war is nothing other than brutal and this book really portrays the realities of that.

The chemistry between these two is believable and strong. I just loved them. The gay for you aspect is written really well and it all just seemed very realistic and honest. Excellent HEA and overall lots of feels. Absolutely loved this book and can't wait to listen to the next!

AUDIO REVIEW

5 heartbreakingly emotional stars. I genuinely don't even know where to start or how to write this review. Firstly i'll start by saying I'm not even going to discuss the story line. The blurb for this book is vague and as will be this review in terms of plot content.

I listened to this book in audio first and then went straight to 1 click and read it all over again. It's that good. Derrick McClain is a fabulous narrator that I've not come across before. His voice is beautiful and really leant itself to the tone of this story. Is this a romance? I'm not really sure everyone would class it as one as there's no sex scenes, no chasing or dating, angst or ridiculous-ness going on. But it is real and honest and heartbreaking and all about LOVE and devastating loss.

As i started listening to this book i was initially a little frustrated, as i said the blurb is very vague and the story starts off very confusing. But if this happens to you please stick with it because its so worth it.

This book is exceptionally well written and covers a reality many families face daily in relative silence. It's deep and emotive and so very sad at times. Those that read my reviews will no how much i love TJ's books and this was another awesome book to add to that list.

AUDIO REVIEW

This was a nice, sweet, east listen. Quite a unique concept and although unrealistic it was fun and interesting. Joel Leslie was a great narrator, switching his voice between English and Scottish is no easy thing but he managed it with ease.

Perry works in London at the Latham Agency doing makeovers for b list celebrities. One day 4 impossibly attractive brothers come in to request their services. They want Perry and the team to collect their 5th brother from Scotland, give him a makeover and bring him back to the capital for a reality TV show that will only go ahead if all 5 of them are involved.

Perry is sent to the middle of nowhere in Scotland and right from the beginning it is one cock up after another. The rest of the team never shows up and he soon realises this London city boy is well out of his league in the countryside. And then he meets Greg.

Greg left London and his family once he graduated university for an idyllic life in Scotland. Bullied by his brothers and their friends for being 'the ugly duckling' of the bunch he just wanted to escape and never return. All of a sudden he has an attractive young gay guy from London dripping wet on his door step trying to convince him to return.

They are both attracted to each other and whilst circumstances lead to Perry staying with Greg in his cottage they realise how deep their feelings for each other go.

These two are so sweet I loved listening to them interact. Although Perry comes across as a slick city boy he has his own insecurities and vulnerability that is endearing and sweet. Then there's Greg and oh how I loved him. He's not 'the ugly duckling' at all but just different to his brothers and in all the best ways! But he has been damaged by the taunts from his youth and Perry needs to help show him how truly unique and amazing he is.

Secondary characters are great in this book. I loved all the Scottish folk on the island they made me laugh and I loved Joel Leslie's narration of them. Greg's dog Rory is awesome! Love him! And he manages to win round Perry who is scared of dogs.

There's some angst and drama in this book mainly surrounding Perry returning to London and Greg being in Scotland but thankfully it wasn't over done.

A nice, light and sweet story and an awesome audiobook

AUDIO REVIEW

Book 7 in my revisiting this series in audio - BEST ONE YET. This book is definitely not a standalone. We are back to Sloan and Dex in this book and yet again Mark Westfield's awesome narration really brings this story to life and brings a whole new dimension to the book.

A lot happens in this book, I mean A LOT! Which I obviously won't spoil because if you've got this far in this series you'll want to read/listen to it for your self. I will say although I loved Ash and Cael and Cal and Hobb's books I loved that this one was back to Sloan and Dex. I just love these two so much and in this book their relationship has definitely deepened and we learn more about their bond and the changes taking place.

This book starts off after the dramatic cliff hanger from the end of book 6 where Dex was kidnapped from right under Sloan's nose. Poor Dex, I really wanted to hug him and look after him following his capture and torture as he understandably struggled with the after effects. Sloan was so sweet and really stepped up in caring and supporting him.

This book centres a lot around TIN, Sparks and all the underhanded psychopaths. There's plenty of twists and turns and a whole shed load of angst in this one that particularly in audio had me right on the edge of my seat and bravo to Mark for all the voice changes throughout this book!

Secondary characters are as always awesome and exceptionally well developed and I loved the undercurrent of family woven throughout this book.

I need to take a little minute to talk about the ending of this book! And what an awesome ending it was! I went from sat on the edge of my seat biting my nails, to devastated to ecstatic and eventually 'awwwwww'. So good!

On to book 8!
