I loved this book when I read it and K.C. Kelly really brought it too life. This is the story of a ongoing romance between a wandering, bull riding cowboy with no family and no home, but a heart of gold, and a San Francisco neurosurgeon that loves him unconditionally. The story is told from Weber's (cowboy) POV and is basically about his journey of self discovery. Not him struggling with being gay, but failing to see his own self worth. It is really beautiful and the narrator does an excellent job. Definitely worth a credit.

It really deserves that extra ½♥. Really mello but still touching and hot m/m romance. Pride can be such a tricky bitch, keeping those lovers apart. It was an easy read over an afternoon, and really sweet.
The narrator has a lovely Southern drawl that was very appealing and easy on the ears. I thought he was a wonderful choice for Webber. Being from the South, I must say it worked well for me; I found it believable and more than comfortable to listen to. Like a tall glass of sweet iced tea on a hot day- only for my ears. OK, that's kind of a strange analogy, isn't it?
The only thing I wanted a little more of, and this may seem odd... but adversity. I suppose it's part of Webber's draw is that he can charm the pants of anyone... well, sort of, but there was a shit ton of acceptance going on. I hope that the world is filled with such loving, open-minded people out there, but deep down I found that hard to really believe that. But then again- this is fiction, suspension of disbelief and all that. It flirted with almost being 'too much' acceptance, but never quite crossed that line (it toed it, though).
This will most definitely be a re-read, it was just too easy to suck it down in a single afternoon.

I loved this book so, so much. The story was beautiful and narration was absolutely perfect. Definitely one to listen to again and again.
The narrators accent and slow delivery was perfect for the kindly cowboy who finds that even a family in the middle of the city can both love and need him. Although there's plenty of humour and sex, the whole book is very gentle, making it a challenge for the reader to get pace and vocal variety into the final chapters. I've listened to it a couple of times, and really enjoyed it.
Great book to listen too . Great story line , Loved the narrator's voice made melt mmmm
"Frog" is a much-loved, often-read favourite of mine (as are most of Mary Calmes' novels), and it was with some trepidation that I bought the Audible version. I need not have worried. K C Kelly's husky southern drawl provides an added dimension to the character of Weber as he gradually comes to accept and understand his importance to Cyrus and others in his life. The leisurely pace of the narration portrays Weber's simple but deep character, revealing touches of dramatic irony as we see the contrast between Weber's self-perception and the views of those around him. Listening to this version I fell in love with Weber, Cyrus, and the novel, all over again.
