Publisher's Summary

Desires Entwined, Book Four
Simon Tyler knows his job as a gay romance author makes his lack of faith in love more than a little ironic, but he's tired of being used for his wallet. When a night out turns into a matchmaking scheme orchestrated by his best friends, Simon's not thrilled, but since he's not the target and he's sworn off happily-ever-after anyway, he goes along with it...until he meets Adrian, the object of their efforts, and finds perhaps he hasn't given up on love after all.
Professor Adrian Keys has tried to date Hearing men before, but being Deaf himself, he's never had any success at making a connection. After his friends con him into going out and Adrian realizes it's all an elaborate plan to set him up, he braces for yet another failure, only to discover there is a spark - except it's not with the man his friends had in mind, but with Simon Tyler instead.
Not all their friends have found a way past their romantic failures, but Simon and Adrian might be on the path to happily-ever-after.

My favorite in the series, passable narration

I really liked Adrian as a character and thought that all the information regarding being Deaf was fascinating. I thought Simon’s willingness to learn ASL and Adrian’s appreciation of that fact was perfect!

I thought Simon’s parents situation was a little odd, I wasn’t exactly sure how his sister fit into things or why she was acting so crazy, but I get that the story needed something to give it a little conflict and her shenanigans did that.

It was nice seeing the other couples again and I thought that the amount of sex was actually pretty appropriate given how slow this couple was to even move toward physical intimacy.

I really enjoyed this and again, that this was my favorite of the series.

Audio

Jeff Gelder narrated the others in this series and I have to say that I just didn’t find his narration all that good. I think Adrian really deserved some sort of alteration to his voice – or at least an attempt at some sort of modulation – to illustrate his lack of hearing. When all the guys get together the voices begin to blur and it wasn’t always easy to discern which of them was speaking. I think Jeff Gelder tends to be sort of “flat” in his narration and though he isn’t hard to listen to, he doesn’t really add to the overall experience. If you need to listen, rather than read this, it’s a passable narration, but it isn’t necessarily the best way to enjoy this story.

Loved the story

They are a perfect couple. I still would have liked to know why Simon's sister was doing what she did. Why should she even care. I still do not like the narrator.
