Publisher's Summary

Re-release of best-selling 2009 novel - What happens when Rory travels halfway across the country to meet the girl of his dreams? Certainly not what he expected.
Rory's just a simple southern boy from St. Antoine's Parish, Louisiana, but he knows what he wants - the girl of his dreams, reclusive and mysterious artist Ran Yamane. He's loved her since junior high school, and now he has the chance to meet her. He chucks everything and travels 1,500 miles to Anime Expo in Long Beach just so he can tell her. He's determined that nothing and nobody are going to stand in his way.
Turns out, Ran Yamane isn't a girl, but he gets that a lot. People come to him with teddy bears and chocolates and disappointment by the truckload. He's trusted fans in the past and paid the price. So when he meets Rory he is understandably wary, but resigned. He isn't prepared for his magnetic attraction to the young man, Rory's apparent willingness to overlook his gender, and the chaos that ensues when his number one fan (and psycho stalker) shows up to get revenge.

Almost Perfect !!!

The cover of Drawn Together caught my eye, I liked the synopsis, I've had good luck w/ ZA Maxfield and Audible Studios; but it was Greg Boudreaux (Tremblay) who made it an immediate download.

So, even though it was 1am and I needed to be conscious in the morning, I couldn't resist a quick listen. ZA & Greg had me hooked from the first sentence. Sometime after 4am I managed to tear myself away for a few hours.

I REALLY don't like angst in my fiction or thrillers or books with psycho stalkers who torture & kill. I REALLY don't like plots where a character makes a "difficult decision for the good of them both" and "big misunderstandings" ensue. I LOVED this book anyway!

How can you not love a book where one character is described by a friend as being 1 part John the Baptist, 1 part John Holmes and 1 part Elmo; while the not girl of his dreams turns out to be an anime artist who personifies Bish┼Źnen?

A lot of stereotypes get flung around, but the characters alternately own & defy them.

ZA Maxfield has created a wonderful, humorous, dramatic, romantic, & fun M/M story. Add to that Greg's Exquisite performance, and you have a book that's nearly impossible to pause for bothersome details like food or sleep. Thank you Audible Studios for bringing us this!

It's not perfect, but for me the only thing that would make it better is seeing Ran Yamane's art.

Greg Boudreaux rocks this!

Any additional comments?

Drawn Together was one of the first M/M books I read. I have really fond memories of this story and when I found out it was being re-released as an audiobook...well, I was happier than a pig in mud. Then I found out Greg Tremblay, performing under his steamier "Greg Boudreaux" moniker, was going to narrate and my excitement knew no bounds.

I absolutely loved the narration! Greg does not disappoint with his wonderful southern drawl for Rory, Yamane's lighter tones, the pure creepiness of Amelia, and the perfectly pitched side characters.

I'll admit I did some eye rolling and teeth gritting at the story this time around. This is one of those times I had a hard time re-reading a book I loved years ago.

I completely credit my ability to suspend disbelief and just enjoy the story and flow directly to the awesome narration by Greg. He totally rocked this!

This was a fun, wonderful listen!
