Rand O’Malley dreams of superstardom. He hopes to one day sing the blues like a rock god. Moving to New York City and hiring a new manager are steps to make his dreams a reality. But nothing moves as fast as Rand would like, and everyone has opinions, which include he keep certain pieces of himself quiet if he plans on making it in the Big Apple. Like his bisexuality.
Will Sanders is a gifted musician who dazzles Rand with his ability to coax gorgeous notes from an electric guitar one moment and play the piano like a professional the next. He’s a geek, but Rand isn’t concerned about Will’s pressed exterior clashing with his tattoos. His focus is music. Yet there’s something about Will that makes Rand think there’s much more to the quiet college student than he lets on. As Rand’s dreams begin to materialize, he’s forced to reconsider his priorities and find his own kind of truth. One that might include Will.
I have loved so many of Lane Hayes books so getting to listen to my first audiobook I jumped on the chance of it being a book I know that I loved of hers. I mean who doesn’t love Will and Rand?! Now as I said this was my first audiobook since typically I like “hearing” them from my own internal voice than someone else’s but Seth Clayton really changed that for me in this book!
Seth has the ability to give every character a unique voice, one that fits the character perfectly! We all go through what we think a character's looks like or sounds ike and sometimes it's hard to move past our own personal views. But this narrator was able to give me a voice to each character that had fit that character. My favorite was George because, oh wow, was that voice spot on!
What giving the listener such a varied amount of voices does is creates a better more complete story because now we can take our visuals and the sounds of their voices and really get a full picture of each scene and even more so the emotion that is being played in that scene. When Will chuckled at Rand over the furniture store scene or Rand’s emotion bleeding through his voice when Will was leaving or just the overall voice he gave Rand or Benny added a layer to connecting with the characters that I didn't have before. All of it just gave me a better love of these characters and this story.
I will definitely be looking for more of his narrations in the future and really hope Lane Hayes continues to use for this series and maybe others!
