Summary

When college student Jake is left for dead on the side of the road, he has one thing on his mind: Learn to defend himself against the men who gay-bashed him.

And fight back or die trying.

At his sister's suggestion, he tries self-defense courses. Little does he know when he asks the man to teach him, he'll be guarding more than his body, he'll be guarding his heart.

Aspiring MMA trainer Benjamin is on his last leg, literally. As a wounded warrior, he's scarred from a broken heart that has nearly broken his spirit. So when Jake approaches him for lessons and tells him his story, it touches his heart. The more time Jake and Benjamin spend together, the more they realize they're becoming best friends. The more time they spend together, the more they realize they can't live without each other. The more time they spend together, the more they realize they're falling in love. But Jake has a secret, one that could change everything....

They're step-brothers.

Like a comic without pictures

All writing is two dimensional unless the imagination is engaged. The reader has an exaggerated style which, together with the simplistic writing, is like a comic without pictures. It didn't work for me.

OH MY GAWD!!! SIMPLY AWFUL!!!

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

NOBODY will enjoy this book, unless you enjoy having a hot erotic gay novel read to you by your hoarse craggy-voiced old uncle. I couldn't go past the first chapter, because you guys SOOOO picked the wrong narrator....an 85 year old guy reading a story of young gay men---NO WAY---- I want a refund!!!!

What do you think your next listen will be?

anything that does not include this narrator

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of James Talbot?

anyone under the age of 30

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

COMPLETE disappointment....horrific choice of narrator

Any additional comments?

I WANT MY MONEY BACK!!!! maybe the story is good- I wouldn't know... I could not get past the first chapter because of Grampaw's poor reading skills....YUCK!!

Horrible. Narrator is soooo wrong for this book

Where do I start. The story is so dry and written for grade schoolers. When the main character refers to the hot guys butt as a rear end it's so not for adults. This book could be hot if you gave it a major rewrite and dumped the narrator.
The narrator grates on your last nerve before the first chapter is over. I CANT STAND THE NARRATION any Longer.
Do not under any circumstances buy this book.
I want my money back. Terrible narration and storyline.

Disappointed

4 chapters in and I had to stop. If I wanted bad Sir/Boy porn I’d watch it online. Not sure what you would actually classify this as. In any case it wasn’t for me so I stopped listening.

Mediocre at best

The Character development is probably the only good thing about these books. The stories do not hang together. Personally Talbot has a very grating voice.

Don’t waste your time.

I felt like I was listening to the soundtrack from a cheap porn video. It just wasn’t realistic. I put up with the first of the three books, but couldn’t listen to anymore. Felt like it was the first book written by somebody who wasn’t really a writer.

Couldn’t get through it

I just couldn’t listen to the narrator. I don’t know if it was totally his voice that ruined it for me, but the story also seemed weak and silly. Maybe m/m lite.

Don’t waste your credit

It’s interesting to read other reviews. I didn’t actually notice the narrator as much as feeing confused about the storyline. The writing is disjointed and random. I’m also not certain the authors have ever lived in Portland because the random inaccuracies are jarring. I even jumped ahead hoping that there was something worth listening to... but then the creep factors got past my tolerance.

One part got me

I’m usually good at uncovering the “secrets” in a story. I was driving in the car listening to the story. Then at 7:13:30, I had the OMG moment. Very surprising plot twist.
