The two women are only exploring,  but when they need a face and body for the persona they create, they use Nate as the model.When Brandon comes across the false profile, he falls for the guy he sees online. Keeping up the charade, Hannah begins corresponding with him, posing as Nate. Real complications begin when Brandon wants to meet Nate, but Nate doesn’t even know he’s being used in the online dating ruse. Hannah and Marilyn concoct another story and send Nate out to let the guy down gently. But when Nate and Brandon meet, the two men feel an instant and powerful pull toward each other. Cupid seems to have shot his bow, but how do Nate and Brandon climb out from under a mountain of deceit without letting go of their chance at love?

This audio book has lots of players in it, but four major ones. Nate, Brandon, Hannah and Marilyn, Brandon is looking for real love not just a quickie in a bathroom of a club. So he decides to post an ad on a real Gay dating site. Hannah and Marilyn are drunk one night and decide to explore all things gay. Including the same site Brandon just posted his ad. Unfortunately, to get into the site you need your own ad, so they decide to make one up for Hannah’s brother, a gay male. Nate is a very sexually active person and on the outside has not interest in settling down.   But lately he’s been thinking more and more about it. Will Brandon find out what the two girls did, will Nate settle down long enough?

 

Argh! The women in this story give us women a bad name, and I have to be honest about half way through (or less) I started skipping their parts. The lies, deceit and the whole demeanor were too much. Both women are at the forty marks and acting like fourteen year old jealous children. And then Brandon’s mother wasn’t much better, but Brandon seemed to be the cause of that. However, I loved Nate and Brandon! I loved that Brandon stuck to his principles even though he knew Nate was ‘the one’. And Nate, knowing he was messing up and being man enough to yes, I screwed up but. I enjoyed the twists and turns of both of these lives I just wished we had it without the women. Which, it could have been done.

 

I heard John Solo several times before and have always enjoyed his voice and once again did a fabulous job.
