Blurb: A friends-to-lovers novella that came from Out of the Shadows, because Nate and Dylan needed a story….
Nate and Dylan have been pals for a long time. So what if their friends think they’ve got a little bromance going? Doesn’t mean there’s anything more to it than that, right? And even if there is, Nate and Dylan are totally oblivious….
Until the night they share a drunken kiss—and everything changes.
Danny and Nate are besties. They have always been best friends, and their little group of friends have noticed that they are more like a couple, than just friends. It just takes a little nudge for them to see it. But when they do, they have very little in the way of reservations in taking their relationship to the next level. This is a cute and very short audio/story of friends to lovers, and is written in such a way that I found it to be fun and humorous, for the most part.
I liked the story, but the narrator’s main character’s performance felt a little off to me. I have a thing for “supposedly” straight friends realizing that they can, and maybe, gay for the other. In this case, they are both more bisexual and it worked. Unfortunately, the narrator’s depiction of two straight men was not very believable. This is a hard audio review for me to write because my intention is not to demean, or otherwise generalize how straight and gay men should sound or speak, but….I have to say something because it affected my impression of the audio. In this case, Nate and Dylan did not come across as straight men. I am so sorry, I really hate myself for writing that. His performance was fine, it was really good, actually, except I struggled with the interaction between Nate and Danny…and considering they were the main characters, it didn’t work for me as much as I’d hoped. I love Daniel Henning’s voice though and may look for other audio’s by him.
Overall Impression: I liked it
