I already read this book and absolutely loved it! When I saw the audiobook was available I was excited but really nervous about the narration. Bad narration can screw up a good book. I was not disappointed! Both did extremely well. I will definitely re-listen to this book and find more books narrated by these guys in the future. Sooo good!

Him, HIM, HIIIIMMMMMMMM!!!
Easily one of my favorite books from this year. Easily.
This book was aaaammmmmaaaazzziiiinnnggg!
I started listening to this book on a road trip with one of my friends, and let me tell you, that car got STEAMY. This book is HOT, and when I got home from the trip, I spent the next five hours listening so I could hear how it ended!
The audio for this book was really, really excellent, and a good audiobook always bumps up my rating and improves my feelings about a story. There are two narrators for this story, Teddy Hamilton, who did the voice of Jamie Canning, and Jacob Morgan, who did the voice of Ryan Wesley. I preferred the narration of Jacob Morgan for his sexy, understated performance, but both guys did a PHENOMENAL job. There was so much emotion, so much talent in their voices that I KNOW that both of these guys will be on my audiobook radar. Why don't more M/M authors (or M/F, for that matter), use them!? These guys are A-team material!
But the story is what got me. Just right in the feels! I just DIED over it. First of all, I'm a huge fan of sexual discovery stories, as I'll call them, and I LOVED discovering Jamie's bisexuality along with him. And loooord, you guys know I love a (view spoiler). Those sex scenes were SMOKING HOT, with so much sexual tension that I was at the edge of my seat.
I'm not usually one to go gaga for sports romance or big, muscle-men, but I think hockey might be the spot where I make my exception. In fact, I've had a great string of sports romances lately, so maybe I should change my tune. Everything in this book, from the hockey details to the kids they coached to the friends-to-lovers story arc, just hit the right note for me.
This book was veeerrryyy close to making my all-time favorites list, which I'm very exclusive with, and I'm still debating adding this one. It was one of those stories that made me choke up with emotion, and left me feeling raw and happy and overwhelmed. The LOVE is there and so powerful.
Awesome job, Elle Kennedy and Sarina Bowen. You both became auto-buy authors for me.

What did you like most about HIM?
The passion, the uncertainty, the snark....it was just a fabulous read. I would definitely go to Ice Hockey matches if there was a team nearby. The narrators were just as I imagined Wes and Jamie to be....can I give any higher praise than that??
What does Teddy Hamilton and Jacob Morgan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
I think that should actually be 'What DO Teddy Hamilton and Jacob Morgan bring to the story'....;) I have no idea which narrator read which character, but I was mightily impressed with both. The audio book has already gone into my Great Audio Books folder on my Kindle, along with the Tin Box by Kim Fielding, Murder & Mayhem by Rhys Ford, Knight of Laguna Avenue by Tara Lain, Perfect Imperfections by Cardeno C and the Bear, Otter & the Kid trilogy by TJ Klune.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes of course. HIM is in my top three reads for 2015, and I've already listened to the audio book twice.

I enjoyed this book too darn much! Two people who truly love each other deeply and a wealth of people loving them in turn. Narration is brilliant and contributes a vlear voice to their story.
This was my first M/M audio. I couldn’t love it more! I loved everything about it. The narrators the story the hotness!!already bought the next book!!
but it's cute for what it is and the voice actors are good, age appropriate.
