Summary

A man focused on success. An artist determined to make a difference. A fateful choice between love and money.

Alex:

I’m on the verge of burning out, but I can’t quit. I refuse to be poor, refuse to return to Texas a failure. My career is everything - at least that’s what I thought before I was set up on a blind date with Jordan, the boy from my past I left behind.

Jordan is everything I remembered - a brilliant artist dedicated to making a difference in the world. He calls to my soul, reawakens the part of me I crushed in order to get ahead. How can I be with someone whose political activism threatens my very livelihood? How can I not, when he reminds me of the person I used to be?

A person who would make the choice to betray his employer and hand over sensitive financial documents in order to bring down a tyrant bent on destruction.... A person who is carrying a life-altering new secret.

Jordan: 

I’m falling in love with someone who works for the most evil bank in the country - the boy I loved when we were kids. But he isn’t the same person. I know Alex - he isn’t a man without a conscience, a man devoted to nothing but success. The more time we spend together, the more I can see the familiar light coming back into his eyes. A light banishing the impostor who would choose murky success over ethics, sabotaging our relationship.

He’ll have to make a final choice - us, or his dreams of wealth. Have I gone too far, bringing Alex into my world of battling corporate greed? I don’t want our relationship to cost him his career, his reputation....

But maybe it should, if it means halting his walk down a dark path.

A path we now have no choice but to walk together. I’m expecting Alex’s baby...and Alex is expecting mine.

Photographic Memory is a steamy contemporary mpreg M/M romance featuring friends to lovers, a dilemma between love and security, and the struggle to overcome negative forces and be true to one’s self. For those who crave deep emotions, real-life conflicts, and surprise pregnancy. Stand-alone with a HEA and no cheating.

as good as the ebook

The story is always 4 or 5 stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook.

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, 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

long and exaggerated version of a great story

hasn't read this one before listening to it and was pleasantly surprised by the plot. bear tears at the angsty bits, smiled at the lovely bits. tbe narrator wasnt great, very drawn out, drawled voice with poor inflection. not bad enough to turn off but not great.

My Review

I loved the twist in this story about both men having babies. I also like the fact that you wrote about the thorny issue of protesting and how you dealt with it. I enjoyed the book, keep me coming

Terrible narrator

I couldn’t listen as the narrator was too painful to listen too. I’m sorry Aiden I usually love your stories but I couldn’t get past the 1st chapter I will get this book in KU and read it instead and hopefully be able to give the actual story a positive review

Completely different story line from this Author

We start off with Alex, working in a dead end job in the bank, his room mate decides that enough is enough. So he sets him up on a blind date. Poor Alex is beside himself and then look who shows up but his old secret crush but Jordan. Mr. Successful, Photographer, political activist, etc. Now things are going to get crazy really quick cause these two are hot for each other like right now. And before you know it Alex is pregnant and if that's not upsetting enough there is starting to be little cracks in the walls of the relationship due to the differences of opinions on the way things should go. With regards to the documents, and the corruption that is being covered up. On top of every thing else ,now Jordan is also pregnant, oh boy double the pleasure...double the fun.... Now the boys really have their hands full and some serious decisions need to be made! This has been an exciting listening experience for this listener/reader and I completely enjoyed the book! Once again Mr. Bates had me from Page one till the very end of the book. The narration by Mr. Hong added an additional enjoyment to my listening pleasure. An avid listener/reader Rock Tavern, NY.

Torn

I absolutely hated Alex. That is who the story is about. He was a pissy, whiney, stupid guy. I liked almost everything else about the story. but did not finish it because, really, who the hell is this stupid and paranoid. I liked Jordan, but couldn't believe he put up with him so long. Yuck.

Couldn't Stop listening

Couldn't Stop listening this audio by Aiden Bates. Thought the storyline was so interesting. Bank employee with 3 roommate's, and a protester against bankers falling in Love. Family issues and work conflict then finding they are both pregnant... Oh what a story this is. Everyone should have this in there library.
John Hong did a Google job.

Overworked and overwhelmed!

Think of working 60 plus hours a week and being on salary. Yeah I get but this book went to the extreme. I wish their was more romance between the two characters. The artist who was an activist that kept getting arrested was fun, but not Whitt’s enough to keep up the amusement. 4 stars because it had a good flow and a happy ending.

fantastic

Photographic Memory is an m/m romance by Aiden Bates. Jordan and Alex knew each other in middle school but were separated for years. Set up together on a blind date they reconnect and begin a relationship. But they are in two different paths in life - one a banker and the other the activist who wants to brink that evil bank down. When they get pregnant with each other's babies will the stress bring them together or tear them apart.

I liked this story alot. They are both living a life they think they need to because of how they were brought up. The storyline was interesting and kept me reading. The characters definitely make you want their Happily Ever After.

John Hong narrates this story and does a fantastic job bringing the story to listeners in an entertaining way. The recording was clean and the voicework was well done.
