Publisher's Summary

Forty-five-year-old English professor Nathan Qells is very good at making people feel important. What he's not very good at is sticking around afterward. He's a nice guy; he just doesn't feel things the way other people do. So even after all the time he's spent taking care of Michael, the kid across the hall, he doesn't realize that Michael's mob muscle uncle and guardian, Andreo Fiore, has slowly been falling in love with him. Dreo has bigger problems than getting Nate to see him as a potential partner.
He's raising his nephew, trying to leave his unsavory job, and starting his own business, a process made infinitely more difficult when a series of hits takes out some key underworld players. Still, Dreo is determined to build a life he can be proud of - a life with Nate as a cornerstone. A life that is starting to look like exactly what Nate has been seeking. Unfortunately for Dreo - and for Nate - the last hits were just part of a major reorganization, and Dreo's obvious love for Nate has made him a target too.

Loved it

I loved this book when I read it and Sean Crisden just brought it to a new level. I love Nate and Dreo's story and I really wish they had a sequel. This is a really sweet romance between a English professor and a mob bodyguard with a heart of gold. What's not to love? Ms. Calmes does what she does best, write sweet romances with lots of emotional drama. Definitely worth a credit.

Love, Love, Love

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

What is there not to like, Mary Calmes (the best) and Sean Crisden as the narrator!!! This is one of my favorite Mary Calmes books. I have read it several times and will listen to it again as well.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Acrobat?

The scene in the laundry room between Nate and Dreo.

Have you listened to any of Sean Crisden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

The best as aways!

If you could rename Acrobat, what would you call it?


Any additional comments?

Buy it, you will not be disappointed!

Light novel with brilliant narration

A very light novel, I enjoyed the story though everyone seems too nice and too attractive to be true. The narration is exquisite.

Loved the chemistry between Nate and Dreo.

Audio book narrated superbly by Sean Crisden as always. LOVED the Italian phrases and voice he used for Dreo.
Almost stopped listening after becoming bored/frustrated by the dialogue in the first two chapters, but I'm glad I persevered. Loved Nate and Dreo's story and chemistry. Super hot scenes between them.
