Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli, read by Michael Crouch. Straight people should have to come out too. And the more awkward it is, the better. Simon Spier is 16 and trying to work out who he is - and what he's looking for. But when one of his emails to the very distracting Blue falls into the wrong hands, things get all kinds of complicated. Because for Simon, falling for Blue is a big deal.... It's a holy freaking huge awesome deal.

OMG! Just the most fabulously unexpected and awesome book. So totally cute and adorable.

The book completely captures that 16 yr old coming out experience and just the most enthralling and adorably cute interactions between Jacques & Blue!!

The big reveal is expertly done, it’s not so far left field that’s a shock, but it’s a nice surprise. And Blue, he’s just so totally perfect?!! Anyone know where I can find me a guy exactly like him?!

I listened on audible and the narrator is fantastic! :)

Malcolm Rodgers loses everything in one week. The quarterback is benched with an injury the same week his fiancée breaks off their engagement. Lost, hurting, and stuck on the sidelines, Malcolm must spend his days in physical therapy with the one person who refuses to let him get back in the game: cocky Vance Coberly. Vance is out and proud in the macho world of pro football. As the top physical therapist in his field, flirting with football players is strictly out of bounds. But the rules of play all change when Vance meets Malcolm.

Officer Noel Carlson isn't out to anyone in small-town Stratton, Pennsylvania, so a relationship is out of the question. That doesn't stop him from wanting one, though. When a night-shift call brings him face-to-thonged-butt with a hired stripper whose girl-party gig went terribly wrong, Noel takes pity on the guy and lets him go. But he can't get the encounter out of his mind.

Daniel Mulligan is tough, snarky, and tattooed, hiding his self-consciousness behind sarcasm. Daniel has never fit in - not at home in Philadelphia with his auto mechanic father and brothers, and not at school where his Ivy League classmates looked down on him. Now, Daniel's relieved to have a job at a small college in Holiday, Northern Michigan, but he's a city boy through and through, and it's clear that this small town is one more place he won't fit in.

This book is an amazingly genuine, sweet and delightful story.

The plot is devoid of any predictable over dramatic events, which ruin many romances. Instead, the plot points are simple, effective, realistic and believable.

In the Middle of Somewhere feels more like a heartfelt memoir than a romantic fiction. I would genuinely love to believe that this is precisely how my love life would turn out.

The characters in the story have real depth and emotion and their reactions are realistic and well thought through, rather than the cringeworthy actions and speech that can often inflict the genre.

Any future audiobooks from Roan Parrish will be in my library as soon as I find them. I eagerly await more.

I would absolutely and completely recommend this book to anyone.

At 25 Hank owns a small parcel of land in Australia's rural southwest where he supplements his income from the property with seasonal shearing. Hank is a "shearing gun" - an ace shearer able to shear large numbers of sheep in a single day. His own father kicked him out when his sexuality was revealed, and since no one would ever hire a gay shearer, Hank has remained firmly closeted ever since. Elliot is the newbie doctor in town - city-born and somewhat shell-shocked from his transplant to the country.

It's a lovely book, perfectly balanced and a great love story! The two men are the cutest and their responses are believable and considered, rather than stupid and there purely for story as some books can be.
