Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
*I received this book as a gift in exchange for posting my unbiased review.
I appreciated the mystery and suspense but thought that there was WAY too much sexual content.
Would you recommend The Handyman : Season I to your friends? Why or why not?
If I had friends that enjoyed this genre, I'm still on the fence on whether I would recommend this book.
Which character – as performed by Connor Brown – was your favorite?
Connor Brown performed the title character(Author Victor) very well.
Could you see The Handyman : Season I being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
Absolutely not, unless on cable or pay-per-view series. I have no idea who I would cast because I am not up on actors/actresses.
Any additional comments?
Notes: Mature themes, some violence and some strong language

Wow. This is some dark material. It is sexy, but it is EVIL. It really tests the values of the reader. Are you turned on? If so, why? While it is sexual, it is dark.
This book is like a combination of Penthouse Letters and Pulp Fiction of the past.
Very well written and read. Connor Brown does a great job as he usually does even under other names.
The book is entertaining, but you may not feel good about yourself when you finish.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
Thank you to Connor Brown for providing me with a free audiobook in return for an honest review.
The Handyman is a perfect mix of crime and passion, split into a mini-series. The voice of the story, Vic, is an author who is starting to get sick of the rejection letters that he keeps getting every time he submits a story. The only feedback he ever receives is that he needs to get some experience in the fields he writes in so that he can talk with a little more knowledge…the only issue is, Vic is a murder mystery writer. But the perfect opportunities for experience begin to arise and Vic can’t resist the temptation to seize them.
I’ve never read a story like this, The story of an author writing a story about his experience is quite chilling when considering what it is he is writing about.
Not one of the characters in this book was perfect. Each one had their own flaws that made them very real and for each one, I would question their reliability or motives.
The twist in the final story was fantastic and I did not see it coming, I would be very interested in reading the next season of this to find out what happens next.
Connor Brown, the narrator was absolutely fantastic! His voice had a real edge to it, especially when discussing steamy or detailed topics that just kept me hooked. He really delved into the story and made it seem really real.
Some parts did seem a little unrealistic to me, I think the police were mentioned once or twice in this season but there didn’t actually seem to be any investigations or questions when people were murdered and an author released some very similar stories, perhaps the next season will focus on Vic’s alibis and how he copes when things start to point towards him.
A really chilling and interesting listen
