On the cusp of rock stardom, Jessen had burned brightly, and Ian had fallen heart-first under his spell. But Ian soon learned he was only a temptation, a pit stop on the road to the rocker's dreams, and Jessen was gone as quickly as he'd come. Ian buried his heartache in academia, the only home he'd ever known.
When Ian encounters Jessen at a party, the seven-year separation seems insurmountable. There's too much pain, too much distrust. But Jessen declares he has a new dream, and that's a life with Ian.

first i must say that im from Denmark. we understand Norwegian quite good. We might not speak it. But we know how it has to be said. And when bouth the auther can make a caractor say things in Norwegian and a narrator kan say it so you think he knows what he is doing. then he is doing a good job.
a Norwegian rockstar sexgod who is not afraid of his own sexuality. who can say no to that. Ian cant. And ofcourse he ends up with a broken heart. So broken that when Jessen comes back in his life 7 years later. He is still broken, and so afraid that he cant believe that Jessen wants him back.
my only problem with this book is that i really wished it was longer. I wanted more.
when i get a book from an auther for a review. I dont always read about it before. I like to get a Surprise. This book was of the good kind of Surprise. and i am so glad I Got a chance to review this. The auther is new to me. But this is not the last time I listen/ read her books. This was hot. And I love hot books.

Like a sweet caress
Ian and Jessen had a 7 year separation. Ian is determined to keep them separated but Jessen had quite a different plan drummed up. Ian and Jessen are so different. Ian is an academic and Jessen is a rock star, yet they are so perfect for each other.
The story was slightly rushed, making it a little hard to believe the connection but when they finally got together, the connection was believable. Oh so believable because this story was HOT HOT HOT. So, so much.
Tristan James did Jessen's accent, so it was easy to distinguish which character was speaking but it was difficult to distinguish between the narrative and Ian's conversation, if that makes sense. But his voice is very pleasant and he is a great narrator.

Selfish, Manipulating Bastards
What would have made Fast Forward better?
More thoughtful plot and believable dialogue
What do you think your next listen will be?
LGBT Romance of course
What does Tristan James bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
He saves the story from being silly. His voice and manner always makes one consider the words he reads. He's one of my favorites.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Fast Forward?
The last chapter should have been removed. Either alternate between the perspective and voice of main characters or leave it as a single person's voice. This just seemed tacked on.
Any additional comments?
This novella was very difficult for me to rate. The writing ranged between 3/5 to 5/5 stars consistently; however, the plot and dialogue were ridiculous. The story was almost as bad as the Mary Calmes story, You Never Know. (Don’t get me wrong. I adore Mary’s stories and own nearly 40 of her audiobooks.)
I fail to understand the appeal of a man who claims his undying love, then abandons you without a word (for years on end no less), and then when he's had his fill of fun, success, drugs, sex and general dissolution, comes running back with, “Oh, Baby. I’ve missed you so much!” Fuuuuuck that!
It happened to me only once. The person called me after 10 years to “get together.” I was polite and wished them a nice life. Please never contact me again—ever.
