I've read Jackson previously and loved him so much I decided to get the audio version as well. No regrets whatsoever. Paul Woodson does an amazing job at bringing these characters and their super sexy scenes to life! I'm so impressed with his ability to relay the character's emotions so clearly.
Oh, and chapter 5...whoa! Totally my favorite scene!

What’s it About? Longtime friends Jackson Wild and Erica “Laney” Lane have had a friends with benefits relationship for years and it’s worked for them so far. Then Laney gets a marriage proposal from her boyfriend right before she leaves on her annual camping trip with Jackson but instead of jumping for joy, she jumps right into Jackson’s bed. The camping trip takes a different turn as Jackson and Laney start to realize that their friends with benefits relationship can’t continue indefinitely.
I hate to do this because I usually love Foster’s work but I had to slam the brakes on this one. I get the edgier and sexier vibe that the author was going for with this series but I just couldn’t figure this one out.
I thought they both came across as selfish and a little cold and when it came to Jackson, Laney was a pushover and let him get away with too much.
Here’s the thing, Jackson and Laney definitely loved each other, they knew it, they owned it, but they don’t realize that they’re in love with each other in the “I’m all in and it’s going to be you for me and me for you for the rest of time” sense. I think that’s what this short story is about, their journey from just sex buddies and friendship to something more meaningful and permanent.
The plot was a little unbelievable to me and I know that this is fiction but I do need to believe in the characters and the story being told and that didn’t happen here. I just couldn’t get past the way Jackson and Laney disregarded other people’s feelings because of their friends with benefits bit going on.
This is the first time I’ve heard Paul Woodson and while I may not have enjoyed the story I did enjoy the way he narrated the book. His voice is easy on the ears yet still has a way of getting a person’s attention with minimal effort.
Click It or Skip It? I’m going to be honest, I didn’t care for Jackson very much but it’s one of those stories that really depends on the reader’s preference. I’m going to Skip It but if you’re okay with open relationships then buy all means Click It and have fun.

when they go camping you can see both battling heart ache and they don't know how to over come it they are putting everything in and trying to cover the heart break.
What does Paul Woodson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Any additional comments?
WOW!!! I loved this story and the words being read out.... phew!!!!
I love friends to lovers stories and this one was no exception.
Jackson and Lanie continuously fight their feelings but an event makes them look at these in bigger detail.
They are best friends who care deeply for one another and they tell each other everything but the most important, they love each other.
I highly recommend this audio book.
