Publisher's Summary

A therapist once told Martin Stevens that being gay was the only thing that saved him from being the most boring man alive. He spends his daytime working a dead-end job and his nights still pining after the ex-fiance who left him five years ago. When his older brother, Daniel, takes him to see a touring musical, a mishap sends superstar performer Alec Jameson flying off the stage right into Martin's lap. It's love at first sight. But can that love withstand the scrutiny of the press, a shock-jock radio personality bent on causing trouble, and the return of Martin's overbearing ex-fiance?

Sweet Short Romance!

This is a very sweet short read. My only complaint was that it wasn't longer. It's nice to just have a feel good read sometimes and that's what this was. I absolutely adored the two MCs and was rooting for them from the beginning. Even with the book being short there was still enough growth in Martin throughout the story to make me want to hug him tight and tell him how proud I was of him.

The audible was well done, I enjoyed the narration, new narrator for me.

Wonderful short story

This is my first from both the author and the narrator and I am very happy to have gotten the chance to listen.
The story is short, sweet and has endearing characters. It flows well and obviously has a quickly moving story line given how short the narration is - 1hr 39.
The narration is good, enough difference between characters speech to know who is talking and emotions come across well throughout the story, experiencing the highs and lows.
I'd recommend giving this book, author and narrator a chance if you haven't yet. A feel good romance :0)

Would you listen to Catch a Falling Star again? Why?

I would definitely listen to this book again. It's a lovely, uncomplicated feel good love story. Martin has spent most of his adult life being put down by co-workers, his GP and even his ex-fiance. He meets Alec, an actor and they get to know each other. Martin can't believe that Alec is interested in him, but Alec shows him how interested he is.The 2 MC's are very nice, I really liked them. Martin finally is able to assert himself, much to the chagrin of his ex - I loved that!

Who was your favorite character and why?

I really liked both MC's but I loved Martin's brother - so supportive :)

What about John Steinkamp’s performance did you like?

He did a good job with the narration . Even though he didn't really differentiate between the characters, it didn't detract from my enjoyment. He has a steady cadence that kept me engaged. I would listen to him narrate again.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I smiled at the humour and cheered when Martin finally told his ex where to get off :)

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed it.
