I ‘read’ this book via the audio book from Audible (narrated by Shannon Gunn)….
Men of Smithfield Series
- Mark and Tony (or Gobsmacked) – book 1
- Seth and David (or Happy Ending ) – book 2
- Max and Finn (or Cover Me) – book 3
- Adam and Holden (or In and Out) – book 4
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
He’s everything I’ve never wanted – too young, too weird, too wild.
I wasn’t impressed that I had to get my weekly massage from a guy with a toe ring. But when I discovered David Cooke’s skills as a masseur were literally orgasmic, I couldn’t stop thinking about him and his amazing hands, day and night. Especially at night.
He’s full of surprises. And despite my bad behavior, David’s just as eager to explore this chemistry between us. Turns out, there’s a lot more to him than hemp pants and tattoos. If he’s so wrong for me, why does being with him feel so right?
So what did I think?
I enjoyed this second book in the Men of Smithfield series. I enjoyed the descriptive style and the wonderful humour throughout the book. It was full of witty comments and interesting internal dialogue. The characters were great including the children.
David was a wonderful contrast to Seth and they complimented each other very well. The pace was fast and the plot had some mystery/intrigue.
I actually listened to this story via the Audible version. While I loved the narrator and the voice he provided for each character, I still prefer to actually read a book rather than listen.
I set the narration speed at 1.25 as the default speed was too slow for my liking. As it is, audio books take a lot longer to get through as my own reading speed is faster.
Reading would be my first choice, and I think I will only revert to audio books if there is a particular situation that prevents me from reading. In this case, I listened while driving and ironing!
I have now listened to the first two books in the series via Audible so will read the next book which should make an interesting comparison and give a different perspective on the series as I think listening rather than reading does change the opinion of the story – you are influenced by the narrators accents and inflections. In this case, I quite liked the voice the narrator used for the main characters and even the children plus I enjoyed how his dialogue matched what was happening in the story eg. breathless voice when needed, but I didn’t like the way Seth’s ex-boyfriend was voiced. I found him totally annoying, which was probably ok given his character, but I felt the accent determined my feelings and not his actual words or actions.
