Summary

It's moving day at Chez Holmes. Somehow, against Kit's better instincts, he and J.X. are setting up house together. But while J.X. is off at a writing conference, Kit unpacks a crate that should contain either old books or new china.
It doesn't. Within the mounds of Styrofoam popcorn is a dead body. A very dead body. There goes the neighborhood.

Excellent!

Revisiting old friends, the sublime story, the outstanding narration

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Boy with the Painful Tattoo?

The chase in the car park - eek!

What about Kevin R. Free’s performance did you like?

He delivers exceptional performances every time and you know that it will always be of the highest quality. Every tone and emotional inflection is right and he maintains a consistent and pitch perfect manner from beginning to end.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Just When You Thought It Was Safe...

Any additional comments?

Josh Lanyon is, as always, fantastic as an author. He transcends his genre every time and you forget that you're listening to 'gay' fiction and you can just revel in the superior storytelling and characterisation. I've got a lot of his books in audio and I've never been disappointed - I can absolutely recommend anything he's ever created. The narrator here is absolutely brilliant - he drives everything along perfectly and had me glued throughout. So, so much fun and you won't regret the credit spent!

Wonderful book and amazing narration

Would you listen to The Boy with the Painful Tattoo again? Why?

Absolutely - this book is the third in a series and I love the characters and storylines The books are funny and romantic and tick all the right boxes . Kevin Free narrates all three and he is wonderful. He absolutely nails the voices and is without doubt my favourite narrator of all time.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I love Kit - who is bitchy and funny but kind underneath and I adore JX, who is the perfect mix of loving and controlling, so please don't make me choose between them.

What about Kevin R. Free’s performance did you like?

There aren't enough superlatives to describe Kevin's performance. He doesn't just read - he acts the parts and does so brilliantly.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book made me laugh out loud, but it is also a romance so it made me sigh as well.

Any additional comments?

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for an excellent gay/comic/ romantic/mystery read.

Another winner

This was a fantastic listen. Kevin R. Free really knocks this out of the park. He does a perfect Kit and J.X. Now as for the story itself, all I can say is at one point I wanted to strangle Kit. He and J.X. make the big move to live together and Kit is not handling it well. Their relationship really gets tested in this one, especially when Kit does some TSTL stuff. But as always, the writing is great, funny and emotional. There is even a cameo from Adrian and Jake, so great!! I loved it! Definitely worth a credit.

Kit is a hard pill to take.

Though I have never been let down by Josh Lanyon's ability to put together a good story, I have to say I really find the Kit character hard to take. 4 hours in and i was really tired of the whining and angst. By the end of the book I was really pushing myself to finish. Beyond that the story is well paced and thought out. I've read most of Mr. Lanyon's work and have never been disappointed. I just don't like Kit as a character.
