Publisher's Summary

Deacon Miller never had it all - he never really believed he could. Growing up in a broken home with an alcoholic mother and a revolving door of truly pathetic father figures taught him to keep his expectations low. Now at 27, on the night before Christmas Eve, his life is turned upside down yet again; his boyfriend has dumped him, he just fled the holiday family reunion from hell, and now to top it all off, a blizzard has left him stranded in an airport hotel.
Steve Steele has spent the better part of his 44 years living a lie, ignoring his attraction to other men in an attempt to fit into the mold of the man he thought he should be, instead of living life as the man he knew himself to be. Recently divorced after coming home from work one day and coming out to his wife, Steve has floundered over the past year, desperately attempting to wade through the guilt and find the courage to start again. That's when a chance meeting in a hotel bar brings two lonely men together...and what should've been a one night stand turns into something much more than either one ever expected.

I couldn't stop listening

I just finished listening to Jason Frazier's audiobook performance of Northern Star. Ethan Day provides his readers with just the right amount of detail to imagine the scene clearly in the mind. The storyline, with it's navigation through ups and downs, involves the reader in the emotional relationship between the two main characters and one's struggle with depression.
Jason Frazier did an amazing job on this performance. The amount of detail he put into the characters was perfect. Bringing to life the pages through tone and expression he creates a scene that's hard to resist. The emotional scenes were extremely convincing which gives you a sense of inclusion in the character relationships.
Throughout this performance so many physical reactions took place which were brought on by Ethan's writings and enhanced through Jason's voice. This was a fun experience and so many events within this book brought me to an emotional state. There's a few spots they get you chuckling and then a few to bring a tear. There was also a great deal of suspense that I hadn't expected. I truly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys a well-thought-out storyline with a great amount of detailed love scenes. Thank you Ethan day and Jason Frazier this was such a great experience.

Not just narrated, PERFORMED !

Ethan Day's story Northern Star is definitely enjoyable, but Jason Frasier's performance is what made this particular M/M romance stand out for me. IMO This is one of the best audio performances of the >1000 audio books I've listened to over the decades. (with exception of his really, REALLY ill-advised & failed attempt @ Italian- and Irish- American accents in one scene)

Jason created multiple good male, female & child character voices. Except for the short accent debacle, it was easy to tell exactly who was speaking. There are a number of male narrators who do older women's voices well, but few that can pull off a decent younger one.

Additionally you can hear ALL the emotions in Jason's character voices. Even his breathing & sound effects here are just right. Usually someone attempting kiss sounds is just cringe worthy not sexy! Honestly, if Jason Frazier is in person how he makes MCs sound, he is one of the hottest gay boys out there.

So in short, 5 stars & worth a credit ; )
