Publisher's Summary

Kee Smith isn't sure who he is anymore. He knows who he used to be - the ignored gay son who chose a blue-collar job just because no one expected it, the submissive bottom who enjoyed large, masculine jocks who put him in his place, the sleek, fashionable twink who partied all night. But after his ex-boyfriend hit Kee and called him names, Kee retired from the social scene.
Back after a year's hiatus, Kee still doesn't know where he fits. His friends say he's a twunk - a twink who put on muscle and turned into a hunk - but Kee is searching for somewhere to belong. Instead of going back to his usual type, Kee hooks up with twink Tate Stevens - a fashion-industry professional who works the image hard. It proves to be the best decision he's ever made, and not just because he's starting to regain his sexual confidence.
With Tate, Kee can open up about his fears and confusion without ridicule. Tate has his own fears about putting on weight and getting old. It will take work to make a relationship of opposites succeed, but they begin to realize the compromises will be worth it if they can be together.

Joel Leslie just keeps getting better!

Any additional comments?

I liked a lot of elements of the story, like the slow relationship build while still getting hot sexy times, and getting to spend time with Liam and Jamie (who we first met in Loving Jay), but I really loved Joel's narration.

Joel Leslie brings this story to life! His character voices, the pacing, timing, and voice-over were all absolutely lovely. I adored his voice for Jamie so, SO, much!!

I'm consistently impressed with Joel's voice performances, and this is no exception. His Aussie accents just keep getting better!

Told entirely from Kee's POV, Don't Twunk With My Heart can be read as a standalone. This is a pleasant romance with low angst, passionate encounters, some humor, and a sweet HEA.

OK story, great narration

3 stars for the story and 5 stars for the narration. This is the second book in the series that began with Loving Jay. I loved that book so much, I guess it would be hard to follow it. This is a very sweet romance, but it didn't really blow me away like Loving Jay. In fact, my favorite parts were the scenes with Liam and Jaime; they are in much of the book. Kee and Tate were a sweet couple, but I didn't really get any chemistry from them. Also, their "issues" just seem to be stated then resolved, poof. There is a little drama with an ex that didn't seem to go anywhere. So overall it was just an "eh" story for me. The narration was really what kept me engaged. Joel Leslie does a great job with his Australian accents and emotive telling of the story. So overall, worth the listen.
