Sure, you have to bear with the story a bit to get through some of Davo's thickness in the beginning...but it's worth it to stick it through.
Wonderfully pitched with romance, humor, very little angst, and some very hot sexy times, I especially loved Dave Gillies performance. His character voices, his pacing, and timing are all done really well.
A thoroughly entertaining listen.

I thought his was excellent apart from one thing, which unfortunately totally ruined this audiobook for me. In book 1, Patrick had a deep and calm voice and Jake had a high slightly nervous voice, which was part of the plot. In this book, although these two were not the MCs anymore but secondary, Patrick now had a high, nervous voice and Jake had a deep and calm one. It completely changed their characters and the relationship between them.
So while I adored the book where it concerned the new MCs, I cringed evertime P&J were voiced.
In terms of the story, the author is a favourite of mine and she sets her books in australia, so the conflict surrounded a gay MC who was influenced by how some australian society viewed masculinity and his own prejudice against other sections of gay society, until these views are challenged by someone unexpected. It is another beautiful story with positive characters, you want to dislike the MC for his fear and behaviour but you cant help but like him.
The fact that the audiobook narrator can make the characters so different just by the voices he ascribes shows great talent in audiobook narration so I would listen to books narrated by him again, the author is a favourite of mine and this will be another favourite, but the continuity error is very disappointing.
Would you consider the audio edition of You Are the Reason to be better than the print version?
Not really, I enjoyed both, but I had different voices in my head for both Davo and Lee
Who was your favorite character and why?
Davo, I just love him, how he alters his views, his warmth, his friendship and his love of Lee. I also loved his My Little Pony stories and his attempt at nappy changing
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
I like that he's genuinely Aussie sounding!
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It makes you laugh out loud. I waited so long for this book to be released on audio as it really is one of my very favourite reads. So very heartwarming in dark times. Encore, Ms Kaye
