Great first book of a series. Teach Me Lightning Tales, Book 1 By: K.C. Wells Narrated by: Rob Drex Series: Lightning Tales, Book 1 Length: 2 hrs and 26 mins ❤❤❤❤ Overall 🎧🎧🎧🎧 Narration 📚📚📚📚 Story Read at 1.20 speed on Audible. We first meet Nick Tremantle who's a teacher and in the closet. He's driving home and see a hitchhiker who he thinks looks familiar, pulling over to pick him up he recognises the hitchhiker and that's where we meet Alex Nordmann former student and recently recovered from leukaemia. This is a slow burn and beautifully written book, it follows two guys who are pretty much first timers. No triggers or anything you don't want to read, this is a lovely soft romance, genuine life. Can't wait to see where we go on book two.

Both gay and Gavin is in awe of the lithe dancer, but Demi doesn't like the way Gavin treats himself. Short and sweet story.

Almost romanesc in appearance.

Wow, I wasn't expecting the twists and turns in this book. Settle Down The Troll Whisperer, Book 2 By: Sera Trevor Narrated by: Michael T Bradley Series: The Troll Whisperer, Book 2 Length: 5 hrs and 28 mins ❤❤❤❤ Overall 🎧🎧🎧 Narration 📚📚📚📚 Story Read at 1.05 speed on Audible. This is my first book by Sera, and I wasn't sure what to expect. I didn't read the blurb, straight in to the book. I struggled a little with the narrator but I think that's because I'm from England and he had an American accent that was hard sometime. The story is lovely, but also tragic, with lots of heartache, abuse and religion. My heart was all over the place reading this. It ends in a partial Happy ending. I wish I could say more but I don't want to put any spoilers out there. Great characters, great story I listened straight the way through and I started at 10.30pm. So yes it late now. But I needed to finish it.

Great characters, voices and story

Once again Lily Morton writes another terrific book. Gideon Finding Home, Book 3 By: Lily Morton Narrated by: Joel Leslie Series: Finding Home, Book 3 Length: 9 hrs and 43 mins ❤❤❤❤❤ Overall 🎧🎧🎧🎧🎧 Narration 📚📚📚📚📚 Story Read at 1.10 speed on Audible. I'm rhis book we meet Milos brother Gideon, who's a famous actor but deep in the closet. Gideon has gradually drunk/drugged himself that mixed with a serious illness lands him a stay in hospital. Eli, softly, but firm spoken make nurse is brought in to keep an eye on Gideons recuperation. He puts up with Gideons sarcasm and grumpiness to the point that he actually fancies the grumpy actor. This book has wonderful side characters that also made me laugh. The narration us again first glass, beautiful soft Welsh accent for Eli and a very nice neutral accent for Gideon. The contrast is so easy to listen to. Beautiful book. Well worth the read/listen. A must have.

Great Narration, great story.

Shifters, assassin's, presidents and sex, what more could we ask for.

I have no idea how her mind works and I'm sure I don't want to see into it. But whatever is within, it comes out perfectly in her books. Always entertaining, never what you expect. Great characters, great plots. Read this book a long time ago and loved it, but on Audio it's even better. Would highly recommend. Brilliant narration by the late great Kenneth Obi ❤

Bloody hilarious, seriously you need to listen to this audio of Oz. I laughed out loud whilst wearing headphones a few times, now they want to commit me. Oz Finding Home, Book 1 By: Lily Morton Narrated by: Joel Leslie Series: Finding Home, Book 1 Length: 9 hrs and 7 mins ❤❤❤❤❤ Overall 🎧🎧🎧🎧🎧 Narration 📚📚📚📚📚 Story Read at 1.05 spread on Audible. Oz's character is brilliantly written and so is Silas but in different ways. Oz is a lovable Irish snarky floozie, couldn't think of a PC word for a guy who slept with his bosses.. But really if your reading these books, why am i searching for PC words. Silas is an earl with property in Cornwall, where Oz ends up as a building manager, the interview had me laughing so loud, making me wish i could have an interview to act just like him. The story is great, wicked mother in laws, HEA, great sex, a typical Lily Morton book with great humour, snark and love. A must read/ listen to. Joel Leslie did a perfect job of reading this, very easy to listen to, plus I turned down the speed to 1.05, normally I listen to most narrators 1.15 to 1.25.
