Kate Sherwood is a wonderful writer. Her main characters are realistic, she doesn't neglect the minor characters, and the amount of romance, angst and sex are well-balanced.
Quinn starts out pretty unlikeable, but it's not long before it becomes clear that he is a sympathetic and ultimately good-hearted character who has had to take on the weight of a family tragedy at too young of an age.
And who could not fall in love with Aaron, who turns out to be exactly the right combination of innocent and gutsy to pull Quinn out of his self-punishment and let him feel worthy of love?
I cannot possibly be complimentary enough for the narrator. He brings this story to life, and truthfully, I could listen to him read forever - I will probably purchase anything he is narrating!

If you could sum up Shying Away in three words, what would they be?
Sweet love story.
Who was your favorite character and why?
This book was full of great characters. I'd have to go with Aaron's brother, who was supportive and awesome.
What does Robert Nieman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Robert Nieman is one of the best narrators I've come across on Audible, without a doubt the best m/m narrator. He has a voice you want to listen to forever, but he also knows how to read a book. I would purchase any book he read, regardless of what it was, because I thought he was so talented.

Since listening to the Dark Horse series I've become addicted to Kate Sherwood and this story is just the right mix of angst and plot. She really make me care about the characters. I also think I'd like to visit Vancouver!
Unfortunately the narrator is pretty awful. His voice is monotone, it was difficult at times to suss who was supposed to be talking and I think I could've done better reading it out loud straight up in my Brummy English accent. I'll endeavour to avoid this narrator in future.
