Publisher's Summary

Two years of living with his controlling boyfriend left Chico worn down long before that boyfriend revealed he'd been seeing someone else. With no other choice, Chico moves in above his cousin's garage in a small town in the redwoods, where he merely goes through the motions. To get him out of the house, his cousin pushes him to volunteer at a local dance studio to help with their annual show.
He's not expecting to end up in a dance class, or to start feeling alive again in the arms of his dance instructor. Rafael is the studio owners' son and was once a well-known dancer in his own right, but now enjoys being a teacher. Although Chico likes him, he's afraid of taking a chance. But Rafael is determined, and it only takes one dance for Chico to start to realize he might still have something to learn.

Charming story but disappointing narrative-DNF!!!

Chico is a charming main character, and the story itself is light, amusing, and entertaining. I have enjoyed many of this author's narrated stories already, so I succumbed to the temptation of immediate purchase without listening to the sample.

This narrator sounds like he is doing voiceover for a rather boring nature show, his voice holds none of the nuances of expression one would expect in a story about humans instead of gerbils. I listened for about 20% of the narration, after all sometimes narrators do improve as they warm to the story. But to no avail, I simply could not finish, this lovely story was rendered boring, and I intend to return to Audible for a refund.

I expect more than someone simply reading a story aloud when I purchase an audible story. I expect a performance, why else would I spend money?

I cannot recommend this audiblized story to anyone. By all means read the ebook, Ms Cooper is a very imaginative storyteller.

Bad Narration

The narrator was not very good and as a result I couldn't really get too involved in the story.
