Publisher's Summary

In a future where the United States has split along party lines, Agent Matt Tennimore’s job is to get people out of the Confederated Red States, whether they’re captured special ops agents from his own country or gay CRS citizens who’ve petitioned for asylum. He never expected to have to retrieve his high school crush, aka the guy who ostracized him for being gay. Rescuing James Ayala isn’t going to be easy: he’s crawling with tracking nanos and has a cybernetic brain implant that’s granted him psychic power he isn’t sure how to control. That’s the good news. The bad? The implant is compromising James’s mental stability. So they’re on the run, avoiding surveillance by AI aircraft and hiding from enemy militia. Then James confesses he tormented Matt in high school because James wanted him. Matt can’t resist the temptation James offers, but he wants so much more than sex, assuming they ever make it home alive. Is James really a good bet when he’s got a ticking time bomb in his brain and there’s the question of how much he’s actually changed?

CHILLING VIEW OF A POSSIBLE FUTURE!!!

Where does 18% Gray rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

In the top 100.

What other book might you compare 18% Gray to and why?

Very much like J.D. Robb's "In Death" Series because both are set in a very believable future.

What does Paul Morey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Any good narrater brings a story to life with an ability to make each character different from another. Paul Morey did very well in this endeavor.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Red and Blue; Gay and Straight. Who would have thought it would come to this?

Great blend of romance, sci-fi and action

This was a great blend of romanance sci-fi and action.
The storyline was good and although I was initially cautious of the narrator, he did a good job.
So I was not disappointed
If you are looking for lots of hot sex scenes you may not be satisfied.
Overall it was a great listen
