All that up-and-coming musician Jesse Jamison has ever wanted is to be on the cover of Rolling Stone. When a gossip website nearly catches him kissing someone who isn’t his famous girlfriend - and also isn’t a girl - he considers the near miss a wake-up call. There’s a lot riding on his image as the super-straight rocker, and if he wants to realize his dreams, he’ll need to toe the line. Luckily, he’s into women too. Problem solved. After a decade pretending to be his ex’s roommate, pediatrician Hunter Wyatt is done hiding.

While the book wasn't quite as good as I thought I remembered, it was still good. The audiobook's biggest weakness was its narrator. I actually liked his voice, but he made quite a few mistakes and I didn't like either his Jesse or his Hunter.

Lodging-house keeper Clem Talleyfer prefers a quiet life. He's happy with his hobbies, his work - and especially with his lodger Rowley Green, who becomes a friend over their long fireside evenings together. If only neat, precise, irresistible Mr. Green were interested in more than friendship. Rowley just wants to be left alone - at least until he meets Clem, with his odd, charming ways and his glorious eyes. Two quiet men, lodging in the same house, coming to an understanding...it could be perfect.

I love all of KJ Charles's books and their audiobook versions, but somehow this is my favourite. There is something about Clem and Rowley that warms my heart and makes me melt.

When Yanni Tomaras is kicked out of his family home, his parents' final words are religious insults and an order to never return. Homeless and desperate, he's lured in by Lance - charming on the outside, an evil predator underneath - who abuses Yanni until he finds the courage to leave. Yanni should feel free. But by the time Spencer Cohen finds him, he's resigned to being handed back to Lance and once again being caged by fear.

I love this series, and the way Joel Leslie makes it come alive. And I adored Yanni and Peter. The only problem I had was the Daddy kink part, which is very much not my kink. That is not the book's fault, however - and at least now I know, rather than suspect that it isn't my thing. I was sad to say goodbye to these characters because I've really come to love them. I highly recommend this series.

Kyle Vaughn had three goals in life: become a vet, find the man of his dreams, and start a family. He easily checked off the first item on the list when he took over his grandfather's veterinary practice. Too bad he wasn't as lucky in love. Chaz Hamilton took a leap of faith when he decided to pursue a career in writing, but one best seller didn't mean he could quit his day job. All work and no play threatened to make Chaz a very dull man when the only romantic action he saw was in the pages of his manuscript. Too bad he couldn't write his own happily every after.

There are some writers whose books work better for me as an audiobook, and Aimee Nicole Walker is one of them. I'm not a huge fan of banter - while reading, a little goes a long way for me - but I have a higher tolerance for it when I'm listening to it. Especially when Joel Leslie is the one doing the reading. I've become a huge fan over the last couple of weeks (by the time my apartment remodeling is done I will have listened to his voice for at least one hundred hours), and while I've discovered I don't like all the books he's done, it's always the book and never his narration.

"Unscripted Love" is a fun story with likable characters but a little too much drama for me to love it rather then just like it. And there is a lot of banter. But I enjoyed it enough to want to listen to more books set in this story universe.

I've recently fallen head over heels (or ears?) for Joel Leslie's narration, and I couldn't stop listening to this. His skill with different characters and accents is amazing. While listening to this I actually couldn't believe he also voiced the Spencer Cohen books, so different did he sound.
As for the book, I read it last year, and while reading had the same reaction as I had while listening. It's a great mix between a romance and a political thriller, with a moving story of one man finally being able to embrace his identity. I really liked it, but it would have been even better if it had been a little shorter. Some of Tom's musings get a bit repetitive at times and in the end the repetitions lessened their impact on me. Still, I highly enjoyed this one and would love to listen to the rest of Tal Bauer's books - especially if read by Mr. Leslie.

Ich liebe diese Serie über alles, und dies ist definitiv mein Lieblingsteil. Max und Misha sind ein wundervolles Paar, und ich könnte ihre Geschichte immer wieder hören und lesen (und tue das auch).
Mir gefällt vor allem, dass die Romance nie das einzig wichtige der Story ist - das Happy End des Paares ist immer vergleichsweise früh in trockenen Tüchern. Das, sowie eine großartige Cast an Charakteren sorgen für einen Realismus, den man in dem Genre nicht so oft findet. Dazu kommt eine sehr positive Darstellung von Bisexualität und anderen Sexualitäten. Ich ertappe mich immer wieder dabei, "Es geht doch!" zu denken.
Der Sprecher ist okay - es gibt einige Stellen an der die Betonung der Wörter schlicht falsch ist und zu Verwirrung führt, und manche Akzente sind weniger überzeugend, aber im Großen und Ganzen ist es in Ordnung, und auch die Bettszenen kann man anhören ohne sich fremdzuschämen.
