Summary

I’m straight. So, when a gay guy on the train asked me out on a date, why the hell did I say yes? And why am I excited about seeing him again?

Okay, let’s start again....

I thought I was straight for all of my 26 years. I dated women. I slept with women. And yeah, occasionally I’d wondered what it would be like to experiment with a guy. We’ve all done it, right? A couple of times, at least? Only, I never did more than wonder.

But after one conversation with him...

I still don’t know why I said yes. It wasn’t as if he was flirting with me - well, not much. All we did was talk. And then, he asked me out.

Okay, so it would be a new experience. I can roll with that. But what if he wants to sleep with me? How about that?

I’m nervous. I’m confused. And as for the whole "I’m straight" thing?

Yeah. I’m rethinking that. Big time.

And I can’t wait for Saturday till I see him again.

as good as the ebook!

The story is always 4-5 stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook. I can't listen to an audiobook without knowing the book, that's not possible for me. The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. It took me a little bit, to come into the narrator, but at the end, it worked. I only have to take a few breaks between. I'm just not yet finish with the book, I’m over the half, but I listen enough to give a review. PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!! To my ratings: 5* - very very good it's like an A+ 4* - very good and will be often re-listening it's like an A 3* - it's more then a one-time-listening. it's like a B

Funny & Sweet, and So Very British, A+ for Yarrick

KC Wells does intense so well, and I’m a huge fan of her dramatic novels, but I’m thrilled to discover how beautifully she does humor! Ms. Wells carries a wonderful lightness throughout Gay on a Train. There are highly emotional moments here, and the characters face some intense, life changing events, but Wells maintains the upbeat momentum through the whole novel. A large chunk of credit also goes to the narrator, Seb Yarrick. The smile in his voice reinforces the charm and humor Ms. Wells has written into the story, and kept me chuckling the whole way through.

A Pure Delight

I had already read the ebook but looked forward to hearing the Audible version. I wasn't disappointed. Seb Yarrick is an excellent choice of narrator for this story. He copes well with a variety of accents and voices for the characters in this delightful story of awaking. Both main characters are engaging and the style is light and funny. Daniel helps Lee step into a new life as his sexuality emerges much to his surprise. I live in the area where this story takes place which makes it even more fun. The characters meet at Paddington Station and as the basis of this story was based on a real life meeting I shall keep an eye out for 'Lee and 'Ben' whenever I travel through there. All the characters in this story are well drawn and fun. This is a happy feel good story which I can highly reccommend

Great story, good narration!

I loved this book so much when I read it as an ebook and I couldn't wait to listen to the audiobook. I think Seb Yarrick did a very good job but I had a bit of trouble telling which character was speaking. The whole book is told from Lee's POV so maybe that was the problem for me. In any case, I liked Seb's voice and I still loved this audiobook. My original review of the ebook was kind of long so I'm just going to give some highlights below. This book – swoon! I'm a sucker for out-for-you, gay-for-you, bi-awakening – whatever you want to call them – stories. I loved the way the story read. The dialogue was so natural, it was like listening to a conversation. I don't know if that makes sense or not but a lot of the time I don't care too much for first person POV stories; they seem harder to read. But reading Gay on a Train was like listening to an old friend catch me up on things since we last saw each other. The story has a bit of a rom-com feel and a lot of that is due to Lee and his quips about his co-workers and the self-deprecating way his internal dialogue goes. He's fascinated by Daniel when they get to talking at the station waiting for their train and they continue talking after boarding. He's a bit stunned when Daniel asks him out but he says yes and then the fun starts. I don't really know what else to say. Telling you I couldn't put it down doesn't seem like enough but it's the truth and I can't recommend this story enough. It's going on my list of favorite books for 2020. A complimentary copy of this audiobook was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author and/or narrator.

Brilliant Story🎧📚🎧 A Sweet & Enjoyable Delight!

I loved everything about this book, from K.C. Wells’ wonderful writing style to the fabulous storylines and characters she created and the perfectly casted narrator, Seb Yarrick. This is the type of book that once you start you do not want to put it down, it puts a smile on your face and keeps it there the entire time. The characters are awesome, they are realistic and easy to connect with. I adored both lead characters, Lee and Daniel, the secondary characters are amazing too. Lee meets Daniel while waiting for a train, they strike up a conversation and wind up hitting it off and Daniel asks him out. But Lee is straight, he has only dated women in the past and has never been with a man so he is not sure why he said yes to go out with him. I loved how everything plays out in the book and how the story is told and chronologized. It is a beautifully plotted story that contains a whole lot of heart. Thank you for another fabulous story K.C. Wells, it was so easy to get lost in Lee and Daniel’s love story. I appreciate your great ability to take your readers and/or listeners right along side your characters, giving us an inside view of what they are seeing, feeling and thinking. #LoveIsLove #LoveWins I listened to the Audible edition, this is my first Seb Yarrick listen and it will not be my last. He is a talented narrator and voice performer. He did a great job portraying the characters, bringing them to life, humanizing them, giving each their own voice and personality. You could hear how much heart he puts into his work as he captures the character’s emotions and projects them into his performance. He is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for the great listen🎧

So sweet! (with heat)

Story: This story was so sweet, charming and heartwarming, and steamy. It's a tale of self-discovery, new love, navigating the unknown, and growing as a person and a partner. I love how the author pulls you in, she makes it feel like you're listening to a friend tell a story about someone they know, that's how real & believable her characters are. I love the fact that this book came from an overheard conversation, and grew into a full-length novel - full of heart & humor, and one heck of a sweet HEA for our two MCs. Great job as always, Ms Wells. I adore Daniel & Lee and the side characters were perfect. Great read. Audio: This is my first time listening to a Seb Yarrick narration, I believe, and I must say - job well done, sir! Great pacing, character portrayal & differentiation, and wonderful storytelling and emotion. I will definitely be listening to more by this narrator.

So much CUTE!

is it possible to platonically fall in love with fictional characters? Like I fell in love with them but I don't want to disrupt their love story so its like love from a distance? I bought and read the book as soon as KC dropped it. so I knew i already loved them. but there's just something extra when you have the story poured into your ears. the boys are adorable. Its so sweet with ALL the feels, but it has an air of realism too. like this could be a retelling of how my friends met sort of thing, only more eloquent than any of my friends could be. Seb is a fantastic narrator and makes his job seem effortless. its actually refreshing to hear a brittish voice narrate a brittish set book. there are some narrators who are good, but just not a native brit. only one niggle that nipped some was that Niall was mispronounced. I got over that pretty fast though. Easy mistake to make but not such an easy fix i imagine. if you want a love story with all the feels and an air of realism, this, this is perfection.

Lovely low angst love story

Gay on a Train By: K.C. Wells Narrated by: Seb Yarrick Length: 7 hrs and 1 min ❤️❤️❤️❤️ Overall 🎧🎧🎧🎧 Narration 📚📚📚📚 Story Read at 1.05 spread on Audible. I've been looking at this book and had the sample on my kindle for a while. However, having the audio on my phone made life easier, I settled down and started listening. This was my first book narrated be Seb Yarrick, he's easy to listen to and has a nice gentle voice but good characters. As always the books written by KC Wells are great, this is one of my authors that you can always rely on for a good read. I would count this as a gay for you/bi relationship. Its sweet, low angst and charming. Two 20 somethings meet on a train, and straight away they feel a connection, one though is straight or thinks he's straight, the other one is gay and out. The story goes through whether Lee is gay, straight or Bi. Whether Daniel is patient enough to wait for the cutie to make a decision. The story goes through the ups and downs of being gay when you've been straight all your life. A lot of sweet lovemaking. Lee's Housemates are grate characters who stand by him, Daniels friends are also great characters. Its a lovely story with an HEA.

So much more than I expected...

Being a big fan of the author , and knowing her style of writing I knew I would get a good story. What I didn't expect was the way the story developed. From meeting a guy on a train to becoming a couple is a huge step, but one that felt almost organic and very natural. Daniel was an out gay man, a very pretty man who loved to dance, Lee however was a typical 25 year old male, sharing a house with 4 others and enjoyed drinking and hanging out with the lads. 2 very different men with different lifestyles and preferences. This is where I take my hat off to the author, as the story develops, Daniel makes Lee question everything about himself. Very gently Lee finds himself enjoying the company of the other man, and listening to his feelings and reactions. Talking with his housemates, who also surprise him, then his family which was scary, he slowly accepts the possibility of more with a man.Like a butterfly coming out of his cocoon Lee finds his life changing with his gorgeous man by his side. There are so many amazing side characters that make this story very enjoyable, one that touched my heart. Also this one takes place in and around London, so that was an extra bonus for me. The narrator did a great job too, I loved how he made all the characters sound different and genuine.

A Touch of Glitter Mix with sweet.

What can I say about this book.. everything and nothing at the same time. I enjoyed listening to every word. I wanted more of their story and like all stories it eventually comes to an end. Question for the author: Will the secondary characters have their story told or may a Novella? I do love Lee's roommates. Getting back to my review. These two characters, Lee and Daniel met on a train, they had an instant connection which prompted Lee to accept Daniel's invitation to go on a date with him...[[[I'm thinking; Daniel saw Lee on the train on more than one occasion, he had an instant attraction to him and finally one day he got up the nerve to actually speak to him...]]] (That's what I think and I'm sticking to it...LOL) Daniel being straight, was a little shock after he accepted the invite. After getting to know each other things started to progress from first kiss with a guy to meeting the parents. Their story unfolded into a sweet, low angst, Bi-awakening with a touch of laughter thrown in that was hard to put down. This book is something I can find myself re-reading over again... too sweet to leave alone on a bookshelf somewhere.. Thank you KC Wells, it was a great read/listen. Thank you for giving us these two characters. My compliments to the narrator Seb Yarrick, you did a fabulous job bringing these characters to life.

Fabulous Listen!

I loved everything about this book! I didn't want it to end. It starts off with an adorable meet cute on a train ride that is only 19 minutes long. Daniel asks Lee out on a date. Lee, who identifies to this point as straight, says yes...he is just drawn to Daniel. What follows is just such a wonderfully romantic, heartwarming courtship between Daniel and Lee. There was no angst or drama, just the development of a relationship between the 2 MCs. There were honest and real conversations as Lee struggled to come to terms with his sexuality...between Lee and Daniel, between Lee and his friends, between Lee and his sister...they were so real and refreshing. Daniel was a fabulous character...he was so loving and patient and kind. The way their relationship evolved was so perfect, their connection was so real, their intimacy so genuine. There was some very steamy scenes, but they were balanced so well with the story they made my heart flutter! There was also a lightness about the book that just made everything flow perfectly! This is such a well written book. It just left me feeling happy, smiley and so good! I enjoyed every bit of it! Seb Yarrick is a new narrator for me and he did a great job bringing Daniel and Lee's story to life!

Gay On A Train

This is a sweet story about finding yourself and grabbing for happiness. Lee begins a journey when he meets Daniel. The chemistry between the two is strong and cannot be denied. Soon Lee is questioning his sexuality and what he has always believed about himself. Their story moves along at a quick pace and has little angst. It is a sexy and fun listen; it is not a deep introspective look at life. This is a nice, sweet story about finding love and understanding and accepting who you are. I enjoyed the way the relationship between Daniel and Lee progressed through the story. As Lee begins a relationship with Daniel, he finds that love can find you anywhere. Narrator Seb Yarrick keeps the story flowing nicely and kept me engaged throughout the story.

Great characters and voicing

Very cute story! Normally I prefer getting to hear bothe of the main characters' perspectives but this one worked well all from one point of view. Loved all the characters, including the side characters - really appreciate that they all had their individual quirks. Narrator did a great job distinguishing the character voices as well.

I Liked It

This was a sweet GFY story and I enjoyed listening to it. I loved first half of the story, adorable meet cute and the start of Daniel and Lee's relationship with all the questions, doubts and revelations. I felt the middle part dragged a bit and I was starting to loose my interest, until the story picked up the pace in the last several chapters and the ending was very good. I liked narrator's voice and he did a good job with all the characters. Overall this was an enjoyable listening experience.

Lee and Daniel

Beautiful story of Lee who believes he's straight at the start and definitely gay Daniel, they meet on a train and the rest is history. The ending had me in happy tears. Loved the new to me narrator.
