Publisher's Summary

Queeny cocktail waiter Lionel wakes up to find himself in bed with Dog, a straight-acting softball player, and the two embark on a rocky road to romance. A journey that requires coming out of the closet, going into the closet, a pair of red high heels, many pairs of red high heels, a failed intervention, a couple of aborted dates, and homemade pom-poms. Mostly, Lionel and Dog learn what it means to be a man.

Freaking awesome!

Where does Femme rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Right on the top!


Who was your favorite character and why?

Lionel is the star of the show. He is one-of-a-kind, dramatic, bold, often unfiltered approach to life!


What does Joel Leslie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

He brought the emotions by the characters out so well. Perfect performance! Could not be better! Not to mention that he managed to keep two completely different voices throughout the book so masterfully- switching between dual POVs with different voices.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I wish I could be able to do it!


Any additional comments?

Oh my Gawd, I didn't see that coming...... and it hit me..... in just the right way. The story and writing were so freaking awesome! It’s a simple story, but I couldn’t get enough of it. Boy meets boy, boys have a one-night stand, and finally boys are wrapped up in each other like pretzels. It's a hilarious and incredibly populated by charming characters book . Yes, the humor is sometimes laugh-out-loud funny, but actually Femme is mostly about our expectations about who and what people are and how they should act. Very much about labels, about stereotyping! What is the deal with not liking femme guys? 'Yeah, for a lot of straight people it isn’t surprising. Lionel is clearly gay, and if you have a problem with gay guys, you have a big problem with Lionel. But, what about gay guys? Why do we.......? Femme guys scare us. They scare us because we are afraid of being like them. We are afraid of being obvious. And that is part of the whole being in the closet bull. Not liking femme guys is really about not liking ourselves.' I really need to brush up my femme side.
