I love nerdy, virginal characters who have a hard time navigating life and Brendon delivers on all of those fronts. I also love it when the bigger, stronger character comes in to sweetly sweep my nerdy boy off his feet, which Josh delivers on as well. <br/><br/>This is a fun, fluffy read. I had a couple of minor complaints, but on the whole I enjoyed the story.<br/><br/>Nick J. Russo once again delivers a sweet performance that kept me entertained and invested in the characters.<br/><br/>This is just sweet, cuddly, romantic fun.<br/><br/>Recommended.

First, let me say that I am a fan of Andrew Grey and I am a huge fan of the Geek/Jock story, so this hit my buttons in a big way. I like that Andrew made Brendon a strong if very naïve geek and that the relationship between him and Josh wasn’t a typical “I am your hero since I am so big” type of relationship. It was very sweet, pretty short, and had a little hot sex to make it an all around good read.
So, I don’t know how many of you read the book before the audio version or vice versa or one and not the other, but – so far in my experience – I have always read the book first. This is important to note, because it means that I had already formed pre-conceived notions about the “voice” of the MCs. That being said, I think that Nick J Russo did a good job. His voice is smooth and nice to listen to. He tries really hard to give all the characters a separate “voice” and though this can be distracting at times, it’s also a nice touch. It helps to keep clear who is doing the speaking.
Josh’s “character” as read by Nick wasn’t how I would have read him (at all) – but it wasn’t bad, just different. Brendon is done very well, and matches what I would have imagined.
Nick tries to add in appropriate emotion and (ahem) groans where appropriate and that’s also a nice touch.
As a staunch proponent of reading then listening – I will say again that this is a good interpretation, and certainly worth listening to, even if you haven’t read it first.
