Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, the story is well written, fun, and the narration by Michael Pauly is top notch.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Borrowing Blue?
The bar scene when the two main characters meet for the first time. This scene sets the pace for the rest of the book.
Which character – as performed by Michael Pauley – was your favorite?
Tristan, he was the most complex of the bunch and that's saying a lot.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Another gay movie with good looking white privileged men that have no real problems.
Any additional comments?
I liked the story, it was fun and the narration took it to another level. The problem I have is the main characters; while likable it's the same old tired formula: two successful and incredibly good looking white guys, with amazing bodies, great personalities find each other and make a connection in their perfect privileged worlds. Throw in some trivial self-worth obstacles to make them seem like their three-dimensional and you've got another white-washed story about gay true love. Way to mix it up folks.

I was utterly charmed by both the story and the narration. I liked both Blue and Tristan very much. I loved that even though this is a super fast insta-love sort of story, I totally bought into it.
But, most of all, I absolutely adored Michael Pauley’s narration. Terrific character voices, good pacing, and he’s brilliant at conveying the emotional moments. I just loved the narration!
If you like Alexa Land and/or like stories with big families, zany older folks (behaving sometimes completely inappropriately), humor, lots of hot sex, low angst, and oodles of romance…then you need to check this out.
As for me, I’m definitely going to pick up the second in the series and whispersync the deal to get Michael Pauley’s audio performance as well.

This was excellent full of tropey pretend boyfriend goodness and just enough angst to make you worry about the boys getting their HEA. The narrator handles the story with gusto and distinctive voices for all concerned.
Will definitely be picking up the next book in the series.
This series is really enjoyable and I love the way each book, character and background intertwine. You do start feeling like one of the Marian family...or wishing to be a part of it. It’s easy to associate yourself with certain characters. The narration is wonderful and bolsters each character so well that they bounce out of the book and into your imagination.
Fantastic sex and sweet mushy mush. I was completely spell bound from the first moment and got chocked up at the end.
Would highly recommend
Lucy's writing is fun, some laugh out loud moments, Aunt Tilly is especially hilarious. The narrator is fantastic, his voices for the characters are perfect. I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to listen to the rest of the series!
