Publisher's Summary

Conor

It starts with a drunken text pic. The kind I would normally never send. Only, instead of it going to the flirty hotel bartender, it goes to some random stranger who actually responds. 

I tell myself an unexpected night of hot as hell back-and-forth is the perfect way to blow off a little steam while I’m in New York closing an important business deal. Little do I know the man on the other end of the line is none other than Wells Grange: The most controlling, egotistical, emotionless SOB I’ve ever met. 

I spend my days squaring off against Wells in the boardroom, and my nights succumbing to the sexy stranger’s commanding texts in the bedroom. Within days, I’m falling for someone I shouldn’t, and I have to remind myself that none of this is real. 

Wells

The first thing I notice about Conor Newell when he sits down in my high-rise conference room is how delightfully nervous he is. Then I see his tie. The same geeky tie that’s held hostage on my phone. The one that belongs to my anonymous late-night texter. And it changes everything. 

I should confess. Tell the truth about who I am. Instead, I decide there’s no harm in flirting. After all, once our business is concluded, he’ll be out of my life for good. 

The more I get to know Conor, however, the more I start to fall for him. Which is a problem, because I made a vow long ago to never let emotions interfere with my life, either business or personal. Except I can’t stop thinking about him night and day. If it’s only in my head, though, it doesn’t count. 

After all, it’s not like we’re falling for each other in real life....

Good story, great narration.

This was kind of an accidental sexting romance with a sort of workplace element. Connor is representing a product being sold to Wells' company. Good ole dirty talk with some dominance thrown in there. Not bdsm...just a dominant male personality. I enjoyed the book, but more as one to listen to after coming down from a book full of action and angst. Always love Michael Pauley's narration.

Wow - what a hot sexy thrilling romantic escape!

I have heard a fair share of cheesy man on man romance, and this is definitely NOT one of them. I was enthralled from the first scene all the way through. Realistic and very plausible situations, thrilling secrets, taboo scenarios played out with willing actors. Romance, hot sex, love, friendships, career ambitions mixed with my own inner struggle as a reader made this a very enjoyable and often made me blush, get aroused, laugh and feel! Thanks!

Not what I was expecting...

But I wasn't disappointed. This had a good reading speed, the story didn't drop out or go to fast and it was also very well arranged so the mind followed and matched up details easily. I also really enjoyed the reveal at the end. I had actually stopped looking for that ’how did’ and the how it did was cute. But I bought this ”thinking” it was a m/f story not a m/m one. I just did a blurb scan saw it had good star rating and said why not. Lol. But like I said I wasn't disappointed. Despite this genre not being in my read-house I was interested by the strange start to this story. Even more so when the unknown texter became duplicitous. The reason I read romance is to escape my drab life and fall in love with love and the journey Wells takes is amazing. And Con is so geeking awkward adorable its no wonder Wells lost his heart. Every one should have someone work this hard to show their love for them. Everyone deserves for someone to learn their love language. It was simply a good love story and by the way M.Pauley delivered a really spectacular performance. He stunned me a few times by how descriptive he made his preformance. What I mean is he did more than just read the words he made sure I would feel them. He did the authors a great service by vocally display a serious range of emotion and distinct voices for each of the main characters including Deb. A Round of Applause For All.

Sexting at its best... hot!

So perfectly written and narrated that you can feel the sexual tension growing as the sexting between the two strangers continues. Each time it becomes more sensual. Hot! Get ready for a ride.

Highly recommended. I think I'll listen to it again in a month. Enjoy!

Virtual vs Real World

There is a website that is the equivalent of Facebook for kinky people. For obvious reasons, many people choose not to put their faces as their avatars (there are people who don’t do this for Facebook either – I happen to like my dog wearing rainbow glasses). So on this kinky site, some people choose objects or cartoons while others select body parts. Guess what is most prevalent for men? Yep, you guessed it. Dick picks and c#ck shots abound. There have been some lively discussions in the community about the value of them. I understand the need for anonymity, but if you think a picture of your penis is going to entice me, we probably aren’t on the same page. With an object or cartoon, I get a sense of who you are, of what interests you. Other women (and men) feel that if someone is brave enough to take a picture of themselves and put it out there, then they’re worth getting to know.

Each to their own.

Now, I’ve read every Lucy Lennox book written and when she teamed up to do this series with her sister, I was thrilled. I was also thrilled at how quickly the book was released on audio so I snapped it up and was very glad I did. This book has it all – two gorgeous men, a cast of secondary characters (including three very strong women, something often missing in m/m romances), and a misunderstanding that might lead to disaster.

The misunderstanding was adorable and very fitting for this modern world we live in where relationships are often formed, maintained, and even severed in the virtual world. How many of us have done something on our machines that we’d never do in person? Making a comment, being honest, or, truthfully, sexting. Not me, but I can see the appeal of that kind of interaction, especially if you are very isolated in real life. Plus, what’s the harm?

Although I’m not quite as geeky as Conor, I felt an immediate affinity with him. He’s stuck in New York trying to get the best business deal he can, all the while feeling like a pretender. He’s doing this for his mom and his heart is in the right place, but he’s not really prepared to come up again glacial Grange – better known as Wells. The man is business all the way and there’s never a break in the façade of a tycoon and entrepreneur. Of course, all is not as it seems. Despite his nerves, Conor is capable in business and despite the veneer, Wells does have a heart. As his background is revealed, I did have some empathy for him and understood why he was the way he was. His treatment of his assistant Deb and his sister Wynne assured me he wasn’t a total asshole. The question was if he’d open enough to let Conor in.

In the end, I understood why Conor felt so hurt, Wells so guilty. I wanted them to have a happy ending but knew they’d have to work for it. Wells’ huge gesture was swoon-worthy but I was glad Conor understood the meaning behind it.

This is the first book in a planned five book series titled After Oscar. I’m intrigued to see where this is going and was thrilled to see several secondary characters already being pulled in. Here’s hoping there are more happy endings in store.

Liked the story and narration

What an enjoyable tale to listen to. With the narration bringing the words to life the characters jumped off the page as the story progressed.

Plan to look out for more from this Author.

A hot sexting story

A steamy love story that I enjoyed very much. In the beginning I was afraid it would be a 'standard' BDSM relationship, but the sub stands his ground and is not to be messed with. Also the dom is not afraid to care. They are both people first.
Michael Pauley has distinct voices for all characters, so it is always clear who is talking when. Sometimes he seems somewhat out of breath, which was a little distracting in the beginning.
This is exactly the kind of story I like: every charachter is true to themselves, but still daring to change for love. Both mains have their stuff to go through, so it's not just one of them that needs to change for the other for the relationship to work.
Recommended!

That ending tho 😍

I have a confession to make. I saw this was written by Lucy Lennox and narrated by Michael Pauley and without reading the blurb, without hesitation, I immediately requested IRL. 

I'm going to be honest, I ended up liking this far more than I thought I was going to when I first started listening. Let me explain. I'm not a fan of deception romance, and while there are a lot of very hot, sexy scenes they involve far more dominance then I'm personally into, but I'm really happy I kept listening because I ended up with a giant smile on my face, and the absolute conviction that Conor and Wells are absolutely perfect for one another and meant to be together forever.

Michael Pauley offers different character voices, brings plenty of heat to the sex scenes, and keeps a steady pace.

I'm looking forward to book two, LOL: Laugh Out Loud (I even read the blurb this time! 😉).
