This audiobook was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
O my goodness! was I surprised by this short story. It was such a treat. I am not a fan of this narrator, but as I pushed ahead and told myself to calm down, not everyone can be a favourite. The plot was so well done, my hanging on became less of a chore and more a satisfying endeavour. There are two reasons I am not a fan of this narrator. One; his extremely slow reading, but I remedied that by listening at 1.5 speed. Two; he sounds older to me. The characters appear to be late 20 early 30's, but their voices sounds 50 may 60 years old.
I love time travel romances. This was done quite well. I definitely recommend this audiobook for LGBT Fiction lovers. It is on the short side, but is worth a credit. I was pulled into the world of 200 years past and found myself emotionally agitated and almost murderous with frustration with the homophobic bastards flogging Martin to death.
The HEA was also a nice surprise, I honestly did not see it coming until the end.
