Publisher's Summary

Jeff Paxton came home from Afghanistan looking to put down roots. Instead his pregnant sister talks him into a job babysitting the volatile megastar Nigel Gasp. Nigel is stubborn, needy, and determined to be the center of attention everywhere he goes. Before long, Jeff realizes that something is bothering Gasp, and that keeping him out of trouble might be more difficult than he thought.
Nigel never planned on getting old. He simply assumed a hard drinking, hard partying lifestyle would take care of that. Now that he's turning 40, he's depressed and a little bit desperate. To Nigel, 40 seems like a fine age to deposit his DNA and check out while he's still on top.
The last thing Jeff needs is to fall in love with Nigel Gasp. The last thing Nigel expects is a whole new reason to live. But how can Jeff put down roots with a man who is never in the same place twice?

Amazing narration. Quirky story

What made the experience of listening to Gasp! the most enjoyable?

Oh, most deffinitely Gomez Pugh doing a British accent that sounded like Nigel Tuffnel from Spinal Tap. It was laugh out loud brilliant.


What did you like best about this story?

I liked the troubled musician angle. Yes, it's been done a billion times before but Nigel Gasp has a few... kinks that are a little out of the ordinary and it was kinda wonderful.


What about Gomez Pugh’s performance did you like?

EVERYTHING. Gomez Pugh is a master for getting to the heart of a character and not only putting emotion into his narration, but comic timing and humour. He is one of my favourite narrators in any genre.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes, at the end in the hospital.


Any additional comments?

Entertaining story made even better by the top class narration.

A rock god's romance

The e-book was great but it was Gomez Pugh who elevated this audio book to great.
As the title states it's a love story. Even rock stars like Nigel need 'the one'
The book has some funny crazy moments mixed in with the poignant.
A gentle romance with no over the top angst. Just two people like many of us who find it hard to trust that they might be worth loving.
