"Laurie West and Christian Black were absolutely amazing. The pain that Laurie was able to convey in her voice heartbreaking beautiful. I loved Christian’s deep and comforting voice for Dean. If you love audiobooks I highly recommend this book. I recommend it even if you don’t! This one might change your mind."

"For me, the selection of the narrators is brilliant, their voices so different, in color, in tone and in the way they transport emotions. This is so perfect because Ryan and Grady are so different themselves. Both narrators get the emotions of their characters on point. Christian Black nailing Grady's no-filter-bluntness in such a natural and authentic way."

"Laurie West, Christian Black dual narration was the perfect cast to perform this story. The story is character driven and Laurie and Christian brought out the characters edginess and personalities. Laurie's inflection is sweet and Christian's deep baritone matches perfectly with Laurie's intonation bringing the story and the characters to reality."

"Nolan is a tough character, as he hides his emotions. Black brings it all out and lets us feel him, even when he is hiding. The nuances are there for us to feel it."
