✱✱ Book Review ✱✱ Personal Secrets by K.C. Wells - Audiobook
I used to listen to audiobooks constantly and got away from it, but I had the pleasure of listening to Personal Secrets by K.C. Wells today and I'm definitely going to have to get back to audio.
Momma Says: 4 out 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐
Personal Secrets is told in third person POV and while the narrator's voice seemed a bit gruff to me at first, as the story progressed, it worked well for the characters. This is book three in the Personal series, but I had no problem following the story. It is MM and fits well into the Romance genre. It is quite steamy, so I recommend 18+ readers.
Length: 6hrs 37mins
Narrator: Cornell Collins
Blake Davis and husband Will are delighted when Ed Fellows turns up at the hospital the night their daughter is born-even if he is covered in mud from playing rugby and drunk out of his skull. Teammate Colin is the Good Samaritan who drives him there, and when he takes Ed home, Colin finds himself on the receiving end of a blowjob. He has no problem with that whatsoever. He's been in lust with Ed since Ed joined the rugby team some 14 months ago. Only thing is, Colin's assumed up 'til now that Ed is straight. Except the man sucking him off certainly didn't seem straight....
Talk about the morning after the night before....Ed awakens to find a nearly-naked Colin asleep on his sofa. The problem is that for some reason, he can't get Colin out of his mind. Okay, so it wasn't the first blowjob Ed's ever gotten from a guy - or given, for that matter - but that was a long time ago, right? And why does Ed now want more?
With friends Rick, Angelo, Blake, and Will to advise him, Ed finds himself on a completely unfamiliar road, as he struggles to accept that maybe the line he is walking isn't as straight as he'd first imagined...
It had been quite some time since I'd had the opportunity to listen to an audiobook, so I was excited at the opportunity to listen to this one. I wasn't disappointed. I wasn't sure about Cornell Collins' performance at the beginning. He seemed a bit gruff to me, but as the story moved along and I started to understand the characters, it made perfect sense. The more I got to know of Ed, the more I could see that gruff voice coming out of him. In fact, Collins' whole performance on this book was good and added an extra element to the story.
The story itself was equally as entertaining. Ed and Colin make quite the pair with their tiptoeing around each other after their initial encounter. I almost felt sorry for Ed as he struggles with the opposition between what he thinks and what he feels. Colin is an all-around nice guy but will stand up for what's right. These two characters compliment each other so well and make for a truly engaging story. The two of them together, along with several captivating secondary characters, make for a fun, and at times funny, tale.
We do get some interesting side story with the goings on at Ed's workplace and while I haven't read the other books in this series, I'm assuming that some of those characters are featured in those books. From what I've learned of those characters from this story, I will be checking out the other books in the series.
Overall, I enjoyed both the story and the performance. Personal Secrets is the first book that I've read, um, heard by K.C. Wells, but it certainly won't be my last.
