Publisher's Summary

When Ethan Williams lands a job at Bingwell, Brock, and Bacon, he realizes his coworkers aren't exaggerating about James Trenchard. He really is a dick. But after Ethan is forced to work closely with James, he realizes there's more to the lawyer than meets the eye.
Vibrant Ethan is a desperate reason to live again as James endures silent guilt and abuse from his husband after an accident. He calls Ethan for help after a beating, and stolen moments soon become the norm, but they can't hide forever.
Ethan's coworkers think he got his promotion because James is sweet on him, James is still being beaten despite his family's concern, and the situation is swiftly becoming intolerable. Ethan and James need to find a way out of the cycle that's hurting them both before their brand-new love suffers as well.

Ok story, horrible narration

Would you try another book from Sue Brown and/or Max Lehnen?

Sue brown, yes. Narrator NO

Would you be willing to try another book from Sue Brown? Why or why not?

Yes the story wasnt bad

How did the narrator detract from the book?

He made me wish i read the book instead - the way he sounds continuously surprised and ending all sentenses with questionmarks makes an otherwise good story almost unbearable to listen to.

What character would you cut from Final Admission?

None i think

Any additional comments?

Pretty good story, dreadful narration

Oh, what this audiobook could have been in the hands of a Gomez Pugh or a Greg Tremblay! But this narrator has completely ruined the listening experience for me. He has a highish tenor voice, which is itself not a dealbreaker, but this is a book with pretty heavy subject matter, and he reads the whole thing with such exaggerated inflections that it sounds like he's reading a children's story.
Consequently, the story itself, which is not bad at all, and, as I said, is pretty serious going, is completely trivialized. The vocal characterizations, particularly of the one prominent female character, are so cartoony, they make the whole thing feel comical, which is definitely NOT the tone of this story. It could have been a really above average listening experience with a different narrator.
As it is, I got about 25% into the audio, enough to know I want to continue with the book, but CANNOT GO ANY FURTHER with this awful narrator. I will make a point to avoid this voice in the future.
Book: 4.5 stars. Good, thought provoking story. Read it; don't listen to it.
