Audiobook Review This is one of those books that when I read it, I thought was sweet story But when performed by a brilliant narrator, goes to another level I guess this is a spin off of a m f series, but it can definitely be listen to as a stand alone I have not read the series and didn t feel I missed anything This is a true mm romance that doesn t end when they get together, but encompasses a significant part of their lives As I said, I enjoyed the story and thought it was a really sweet love story But Joshua Ward really elevated this to amazing His performance was nothing less than brilliant This is my first time listening to him, but I would buy anything he narrates He truly brought this story to life. Audiobook reviewI m of two minds about this book, On the one hand, I absolutely loved the narration, Joshua Ward was absolutely brilliant, and I hope he ll narratebooks to come It wasn t perfect, byt that accent made up for that As for the storywell that wasn t as good far from it The writing was messy and hard to follow There were strange time jumps out of nowhere switching tenses and it had this strange diary vibe to it that kept you at a distance from the story and the characters I m also not a fan of drama for drama s sake, where it doesn t add anything to the storythan manipulation of the reader of a filler, and this book had both I do think that withediting, fleshing out that the story would be better and easier to follow, and preferablyof a story So in the end, I loved the narration, but could have done without the story.

Are you tired of the typical love story Are you ready for a fresh one Then this book is for youTRUE LOVE KNOWS NO BARRIERS The characters in this story are truly loveable, realistic and down right funny Cassandra knows how to build relationships amongst the characters that you will fall in love with I personally have 2 brothers who I adore..so this story really warmed my heart Take a chance on a different type of love storyyou won t regret it What a fabulous story this is It s a spin off from the Mr White Series Although I see it s recommended you read the other books first I haven t and I can honestly say while reading this I didn t feel I was missing anything by not reading them The sexual tension through the first part of this was amazing I ve not read many M M books so I thoroughly enjoyed it This story had lots of lovely factors that I enjoy in a book Love, family relationships the sex I found this to be a lovely easy reading romantic story with a brilliant ending The last few pages is not what I expected It was better than I expected The author did a brilliant job on this story I ll definetly be looking into readingof her work Received from author in return for an honest review. This was good Not a lot of sex scenes but that s okay it was kind of nice to read just a plain ol romance novella I think I probably should have read the original series first cause now I know a lot of what happens but oh well I would definitely recommend this to my friends especially the ones who are just starting out with the M M genre. Okay, here s the deal I love Rafe and Matthew They are great characters However, this story would ve needed a lot, an I mean A LOT of editing The writing is sloppy, the plot is lacking depth and the weird time jumps and POV jumps are just no This could ve been a five star read with the right editing It s quite sad really.And the on top of it all, the narrator stressed me out. This reads almost like a journal or a diary Just an imparting of information rather than an actual story It has its sweet moments but the stilted writing made it difficult for me to really get into the story I liked that there was no mucking around, both Rafe and Matthew freely admitted their attraction to each other and I really liked the premise of 30 days but other than that it was just boring It seemed to go on and on without much actually happening I gave up just over half way through I was just so bored with it and didn t care what happened The formatting of this book is really distracting, absolutely everything is underlined and it s really annoying As an aside, the percentage count didn t seem to be moving very fast so I flicked through and the book actually finished at 50% and then starts again only this time the whole thing is crossed out Seriously weird formatting. The one thing I like about this romance is that the leads play no games and are straightforward in acknowledging their attraction for each other right from the start.As for the restThere is a specific tone the best romances achieve and in my imagination it is similar to a high quality sparkling wine.Here the leads are not exactly likeable I was very put off by the fact that one of them, a martial artist, hits his ex who, despite being an a ole, is not one and the author spends much of her time judging people and situations instead of making them alive for her readers.The end result tastes like oversweetened, flat soda.I dropped it without finishing it.
