So, I’m not going to lie to you – when I first read this high-octane paced story, I kept imagining how Spencer Goss would narrate it. I’d completely fallen head over heals for his narration of the Fish Stick Fridays and was eagerly awaiting Hanging the Stars to hear what he’d do. Alas, it wasn’t to be. Spencer Goss did not return for the sequel. Instead, Greg Tremblay stepped into the Half Moon Bay shoes and set about bringing West and Angel to life.<br/><br/>No worries, fans, because Tremblay, as usual, does a fantastic job. This was absolutely, thoroughly enjoyable! <br/><br/>I absolutely loved Tremblay’s character voices for everyone, but most of all for Angel and West. <br/><br/>If you’re looking for a sweet, low angst romance with some mystery, look elsewhere. This is a full on, lock your seatbelt, grab the oh-sh** bar, and hold on kind of mystery romance.<br/><br/>This story is like a shot of pure adrenaline. It’s fun and frantic read, with a super fast pace, and likable characters, including the introduction of Marzo and Justin.<br/><br/>I loved the way Tremblay’s able to convey the breakneck pacing of the story, without it being frenzied to listen to. I don’t mean he literally slowed it down, I mean they way he conveyed the action so that it flowed brilliantly without it being manic. <br/><br/>I love Greg Tremblay’s voice acting. And it’s a little bit of magic every time he takes one of Rhy’s stories and brings it to life. This is no exception.<br/><br/>Recommended!

Angel and his little brother are just trying to make it...he owns a small bakery, and runs a second chance motel where people come to get on their feet...this was left to him by West and Langs grandma....West and Angel spent a sweet young summer of love together many years ago...and it ended badly....So when West drops back into Angels life, so many feelings try to push them together and apart...Angel had a rough childhood..his father was a con artist and beat him....using him for his own gain always..he abandons them and Angel now is raising his baby brother Roman...Things start to get dangerous...fires, shootings..and life is falling apart..The only thing falling together is this new little family...and they ultimately end up saving each other!!!<br/><br/>I have only read a few M/M romances..but I totally see there appeal now after these 2...and I am loving Rhys Ford...I need more of her writing!!<br/><br/>HIGHLY RECOMMEND! GREAT SERIES...AND I HOPE THERE IS ANOTHER BOOK IN THIS SERIES!!!

What did you like best about Hanging the Stars? What did you like least?
This was a carbon copy of book one with different MC's. The book was predicatable and formulaic and had a huge plot hole carried over from book 1. I knew within the first 30 minutes what was going to happen.
Has Hanging the Stars put you off other books in this genre?
Not at all. Why would it? I love the M/M genre. I just want more from a story than formulaic fluff.
Which character – as performed by Greg Tremblay – was your favourite?
His interpretation of Zig was such fun.
Do you think Hanging the Stars needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
No. I think Rhys Ford should focus on writing more fantasy. Her fantasy books are amazing. I need more M/M fantasy!
Oh Greg Tremblay... how I love your voice. This was a wonderful story, wonderfully narrated. The story features the characters from Fish Stick Fridays and West and Zig's interactions managed to steal the show.
Yet again, Greg brings Rhys Ford's characters to life. My only quibble is that Greg didn't narrate book one, so Lang already had a voice in my mind - that said, he was a secondary character here and it really didn't take long to get used to him again. That and West and Angel were wonderfully narrated and made the book a really enjoyable listen.
