Publisher's Summary

Tristan is the second oldest of the Brennan brothers and the odd man out. Most of the Brennan men have careers in law enforcement, but as a psychiatrist, Tristan chooses to help people in a different way. Quiet and restrained, he is content to hover in the background of his more gregarious brothers. Then he meets two men, each broken and damaged from losses beyond their control.
Gabriel Simenson is mourning his lover's death. The random act of violence that took Gio's life has left everyone at All Cocks reeling. The only thing keeping Gabe from drowning in misery is the friendship he's forged with Micah, the newest model at All Cocks. He continues to struggle, and at the urging of his All Cocks family Gabe agrees to counseling with Tristan under one condition: Micah must go with him.
Micah Solo can relate to unbearable loss, having lost his leg and so much more in Iraq. The past two years he has been alone, adrift and vulnerable - the memories of war haunting his dreams, spilling over into his daily life. At All Cocks, Micah has found the acceptance he craves and the family he lost, but still he yearns for happiness and peace within.
The friendship between the three is instant, the mutual attraction evident. They circle each other, wanting more, yet unsure if it is truly possible. Is life the mundane reality they've each come to accept for themselves or do they dare to hope?
The All Cocks Stories is a series set within the world of online gay porn. Micah's PTSD is told in detail, including flashbacks to his time in Iraq.

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

Yes, good story, although the characters were slightly underdeveloped. The writing was very good and it never became too porn-y or silly, as stories with porn stars could easily become. Instead, it was presented pretty realistically, and the porn angle was pretty down played. That was good, but also kind of bad in that the effects of being in porn for these men was never addressed, it was just like any job, and kind of came across like it was a dull job that the characters forgot about the second they left the studios.

Would you recommend Dare to Hope to your friends? Why or why not?

Yes, this was a story of three friends, two of whom had tragedies greatly affect their lives in the past year or two, and the third was their therapist who got a little too emotionally involved with these two. (Also, there was no anguish or consequence of a doctor becoming emotionally and eventually sexually involved with their clients). All three find themselves attracted to each other and not sure how to handle the situation.

The best part of this audiobook is the narrator, Joel Leslie. He is by far one of the best narrator's in the industry. He gave every character a distinct voice and accents as needed as well. Joel brings the story to life, making the author's well written text even better.

Any additional comments?

I think this was the third book in this series I have listened to/read. They are all good books and I recommend them to anyone who likes this genre. Come for the story, stay for Joel Leslie!

simply amazing

Any additional comments?

I just can't get enough of these men. The emotional roller coaster that this author puts us/them through to get to the HEA/HFN is probably one of the best, well written ones I've had the pleasure to read and now have had read to me.

You've got several different stories going on at one time, but TM Smith is such an amazing word smith that she can craft it so not only does the story of Tristan, Gab and Micah mingle so perfectly with secondary story of Vic, Andrew and Maddie. And then the surrounding men and whats going on the there lives. That it's not overwhelming or overloaded.

Once again, Joel Leslie does a perfect job capturing the voices, emotion and cadence of each character.
