Pretty Decent Short Story - Worth the Listen
So firstly, the narrator Andrew McDermott is Irish, and when I say Irish, I mean he has a strong Irish accent. But it never took me out of the story, and had an oddly soothing, ASMR-like tone to it all.
The story as a whole was much better than I expected, as most books of this genre seem to be very cliche and badly written - story and character arc wise. I hope that Rebekah Dodson continues with this series because I can't wait to see what else can come. Just wanted it to be a longer story, so it was a shame when it ended :)
