Publisher's Summary

I was counting down the months until the end of my deployment. My days were spent working on military vehicles, and I spent my nights playing video games that would distract me until I could leave staff sergeant Garrett Reid behind.
That was when I met him: Kai Bannon, a fellow gamer with a famous stream channel.
I never expected to become fixated on someone who'd initially been a rival. And I'd never expected someone who oozed charm to notice me - a guy known for his brutal honesty and scowl. I hadn't planned for our online friendship to turn into something that kept me up at night - hours of chatting evolving into filthy webcam sessions.
But it did. And now I can't stop thinking about him. In my mind, our real life meeting is perfect. We kiss, we fall into bed, and it's love at first sight.
Except, like most things in my life, it doesn't go as planned.

Could do better Mr Locke....

Loved the story, 5 stars all the way, and Kai and Garrett definitely scorched the sheets between them. The gamer speak went right over my head I'm afraid, just not that interested, it was the Garrett/Kai love story I was sold on. When I saw that it was being released by Tantor on audio, I pre-ordered immediately, but confess that I hadn't listened to either of the narrators before, although I did hear snippets of them doing other stuff on Audible.

Guy Locke, who reads Garrett...well, I was distinctly underwhelmed [read...won't be listening to anything else he narrates], and I hope to God that Meg/Sonny choose a different narrator to read the next story in the series Fast Connection. His voice was flat and emotionless, his intonation was barely noticeable and he had a weird way of saying certain words, as in he didn't finish pronouncing them....and I see from reviews of his other work on Audible that other reviewers don't rate him that highly either. I live in the UK, and colour me clueless as to how someone from Staten Island speaks normally, but Locke's attempts at voicing Dominic Costigan from Fast Connection just irritated the hell out of me, he sounded like an OTT bit part actor from some old Jimmy Cagney gangster movie.

Eric London, on the other hand, was really good as Kai, and I much preferred his growly interpretation of Garrett when he was reading both voices.

It's a real shame when there are dual voices in an audio book and one of those voices just doesn't work as well as the authors would have hoped, especially when that voice is the main character in the story. Please choose a different narrator for Costigan in the next audio book guys!! 4 stars for this audio adaptation.

Entertaining, erotic, romantic book

If you could sum up Strong Signal in three words, what would they be?

Brilliant, wonderful, superb


Who was your favorite character and why?

I love Garrett and Kai, both strong m/cs in their own right, both vulnerable in different ways, and I am also looking out for Costigan's story in audio. I loved the dual narrators having different voices for the characters.


Have you listened to any of Guy Locke and Eric London ’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I am not really a fan of Guy Locke's as he is quite a sloooooww talking narrator but I think he did a great job for Garrett, really suited him. Never listened to Eric Lomdon before but he did a great job and I would listen again.


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

I think it's an emotionally charged book because of the vulnerabilities of the m/cs and the worry for returning servicemen looking for work in a difficult economy. We have social anxiety disorder and an outing. Real life choices are a threat to a happy ending, of course I sniffled.


Any additional comments?

Loved the book, the audio added to the experience. Can't wait for Fast Connection!
