VBlurb:

Weber Yates’s dreams of stardom are about to be reduced to a ranch hand’s job in Texas, and his one relationship is with a guy so far out of his league he might as well be on the moon. Or at least in San Francisco, where Weber stops to see him one last time before settling down to the humble, lonely life he figures a frog like him has coming.

Cyrus Benning is a successful neurosurgeon, so details are never lost on him. He spotted the prince in a broken-down bull rider’s clothing from day one. But watching Weber walk out on him keeps getting harder, and he’s not sure how much more his heart can take. Now Cyrus has one last chance to prove to Weber that it’s not Weber’s job that makes him Cyrus’s perfect man, it’s Weber himself. With the help of his sister’s newly broken family, he’s ready to show Weber that the home the man’s been searching for has always been right there, with him. Cyrus might have laid down an ultimatum once, but now it’s turned into a vow – he’s never going to let Weber out of his life again.

My View – Story:

Frog is a story that I just love re-reading while curled up in a warm blanket on a cold winter day. Listening to it as an audiobook only makes enjoying the experience of this lovely story better. Weber is an out of work cowboy who fails in his attempt to have a successful bull riding career. He meets neurosurgeon Cyrus, and their sexual chemistry is off the charts. The two men fall hard for each other, but Weber’s unwillingness to be a “kept man” taken care of by successful Cyrus keeps them from being together. When Web unexpectedly shows up in San Francisco, their relationship grows and Cyrus is unwilling to allow Web to again leave his life.

Weber is the perfect man. He’s ruggedly handsome, strong yet gentle, sexy, mannerly, polite, loves children and animals, quietly proud, and exceedingly kind and decent. While this level of perfection could easily be laughably unrealistic, there’s a modesty and absence of vanity about Weber that makes him sympathetic and likable. His impact upon those around him is remarkable – he makes uptight Cyrus laugh and cuddle, while he makes sad and fearful children feel safe and secure. His and Cyrus’s relationship is warm and loving, and sexually they share an intimacy that is undeniably luscious.

Never fear, both Weber and Cyrus find their handsome prince (neither of these guys is a frog!), and the story provides one of the warmest and most heartwarming happy endings I’ve enjoyed. Do no miss the delightful experience of hearing this treasured story as an audiobook!

My View – Narration:

The narrator of an audiobook is so important … A poor choice of narrator can easily detract from the story itself, while an excellent narration makes a story and its characters come alive. K.C. Kelly is the perfect choice to narrate Frog. His smooth, easy drawl captures the calm fortitude of Weber, and his representation of Cyrus is ideal. Kelly makes this wonderful story vibrant with emotion, and he somehow makes me love a story that I already adore even more.
