This was an incredibly sweet little story. The story and characters are very well developed for such a short story. Lots of drama and angst. Very much enjoyed this. I'll definitely be checking out the rest of this series.
The narrator gave a wonderful performance. His reading style was somewhat sedate however. I speed up the book to 1.5x and I enjoyed it much better.

I had a hard time rating this one, because I did ultimately like and enjoy the story, despite some outlandish plot twists worthy of a soap opera.
At first listen, the narration seemed a bit flat and character voices indistinguishable ... but after a few minutes, I was able to follow along with no problem and the narration did make the story more enjoyable for me (than just reading it myself).
In the end, despite the eye-rolling plot points, the sweet m/m romance proved to be memorable and worth the listen. This was my first Aria Grace book and first I read in the series. I was able to follow along with no problem and went on to listen to other books in this series (since they are included in the Romance Package).
Where does My Name is Luka rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Definitely at the top of my list, one I would certainly be listening to again. I really enjoyed following Luka's determination to bide his time until he reaches 18 and escape his Father. Brad is a neighbor but doesn't know about the abuse until he has to stay at home after breaking his wrist.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Whilst I feel it should be Luka it's Brad who is my favourite. He steps in to protect Luka and give him a reason to believe there is a better future. They make such a good couple. He is so gentle with Luka.
Have you listened to any of Tim Todd’s other performances? How does this one compare?
I have listened to Hands on, book 5, in this Series also narrated by Tim Todd. He is a very good narrator. Brad comes across as a straight forward guy and Luka's strength in the face of abuse really shines through.His portrayal of Luks's father was very good.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes definitely, unfortunately I listen while traveling to work so time is limited.
Any additional comments?
I was given a copy of the audiobook by the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.
