You know what I love about this book? Yes, there’s hot British rugby players, but that’s not it (though it doesn't hurt LOL). And sure, we get to see more of the guys who were the main characters in the previous books in the series (I’m a sucker for revisiting favorite couples later on to see where they’ve been and where they are now). But it’s Ed Fellows who quickly captured my attention with his rough, masculine ways and attitude, and his “what the heck” approach to the feelings he’s developed for his teammate Colin.
Ed may not know what to do with his feelings for Colin, but Colin is very aware of his own feelings for Ed—feelings he’s had for quite a while now, but never acted on since he thought Ed was straight. Or at least he did until one particular night…
The chemistry between these two is hot and it was pretty entertaining getting Ed’s side of things as he starts experiencing a relationship with Colin-both physical and emotional. When I read the book, I was totally taken with the two of them together, but listening to the audio made their story even more appealing.
Cornell Collins does an excellent job with the narration, I absolutely LOVE his accent and the way he brings Ed to life with his more gruff and more heavily accented voice made this a delight to listen to—it really helped emphasize the differences between Ed and Colin. The pacing was perfect, and this is one of those audiobooks that when someone would come over to me while I was listening, they would get my “are you really interrupting me right now???” look.
Personal Secrets is a great addition to this series, and I really enjoyed reading and listening to this story. The story itself gets 4.5 stars from me, and the narration is definitely a full 5 stars. This book is meant for readers/listeners who are 18+ for adult language and sexual content.
Story: 4.5 Stars!!!
Narration: 4 Stars!!!
Overall: 4.25 Stars!!!
I was intrigued by Ed ever since I read Making It Personal, he seemed like such a fun, easygoing guy. Seeing him in More Than Personal with Colin made me even more interested to read their story and as it turned out, it was my favorite of them all.
Ed considers himself straight, even if he’s fooled around with guys in the past, but it isn’t until he gets drunk one night and he convinces Colin to share handjobs and blowjobs with him that things change for him as he’s unable to stop thinking about Colin, to the point where he’s unable to perform with one of his old girlfriends.
Colin has been attracted to Ed since Ed joined the rugby team they’re both on, but never thought it’d amount to anything. One night changes it all and now they both will need to navigate through building a relationship while dealing with a homophobic teammate and helping Ed with his issues regarding his sexuality.
I loved Ed! He was hilarious and I loved his interactions with his friends and with Colin. He’s just one of those characters you can’t help but fall for. I liked Colin a lot, but there were a few things that made me want to slap him just a bit, like the whole bit with his ex. Still, the chemistry between Ed and Colin was unbelievable! Hot, hot, HOT! I just couldn’t get enough of them together!
I loved that Rick was there to provide Ed with a very needed sounding board to help him through his issue and it was lovely seeing Angelo, Blake, Will and baby Sophie.
I really liked the audiobook version and Cornell Collins' narration. He has a nice, smooth tone and did a fantastic job with all the different characters that appear in the story. My one problem was Ed's voice, while I'm aware he has a very thick accent, it was a bit difficult sometimes to understand what he said. I actually had to rewind a few parts to understand what I was listening to. Other than that, you really can't go wrong with this book, be it reading or listening to it, you're in for a treat. It's funny and hot, with just a bit of angst thrown in for good measure and the narrator did it justice. Highly recommendable!
