Publisher's Summary

A Being(s) in Love Story
Arthur MacArthur needs a job, and not just for the money. Before he dropped out of school to support his younger sister, he loved being a research assistant at the university. But working for a dragon, one of the rarest and least understood magical beings, has unforeseen complications. While Arthur may be the only applicant who isn’t afraid of Philbert Jones in his dragon form, the instant attraction he feels for his new employer is beyond disconcerting.
Bertie is a brilliant historian, but he can’t find his own notes without help - his house is a hoard of books and antiques, hence the need for an assistant. Setting the mess right is a dream come true for Arthur, who once aspired to be an archivist. But making sense of Bertie’s interest in him is another matter. After all, dragons collect treasure, and Arthur is anything but extraordinary.

Slow narration

I enjoyed the story itself very much but the purposeful slow way the narrator read made it really had to get into.

Nice story but terrible narration!

Any additional comments?

This is a nice story. Not terribly exciting or plot driven, it's a casual feel good book about two not very adventurous characters falling in love. And while Arthur and Bertie weren't very adventurous, I did enjoy them both as characters. Sadly, I gave up on the audiobook a few hours in because the reader was painful to listen to. I had the speed set to 1.45 just to make it listenable and even then, every time the narrator said 'Arthur..' it lasted for about 4 seconds. I dread to think what it was like in normal speed. Painful! I read the second half on kindle. I agree with the reviewer who said to skip the audiobook and get the kindle. I wish I'd read the reviews before I bought the audio version.
