Blurb: Sometimes you have to play love by ear.
Aaron Seavers is a pathetic mess, and he knows it. He lives in terror of incurring his father’s wrath and disappointing his mother, and he can’t stop dithering about where to go to college—with fall term only weeks away. Ditched by a friend at a miserable summer farewell party, all he can do is get drunk in the laundry room and regret he was ever born. Until a geeky-cute classmate lifts his spirits, leaving him confident of two things: his sexual orientation, and where he’s headed to school.
Giles Mulder can’t wait to get the hell out of Oak Grove, Minnesota, and off to college, where he plans to play his violin and figure out what he wants to be when he grows up. But when Aaron appears on campus, memories of hometown hazing threaten what he’d hoped would be his haven. As the semester wears on, their attraction crescendos from double-cautious to a rich, swelling chord. But if more than one set of controlling parents have their way, the music of their love could come to a shattering end.
Warning: Contains showmances, bad parenting, Walter Lucas, and a cappella.
Review: I haven’t read a book by Heidi Cullinan in a while, mainly because I was under the impression she writes BDSM, a genre I’m really not into. Of course, there is one story of hers that stuck with me—I’ll never quite look at riding ponies the same without wishing I could do this to my significant other. But, after reading Jules’ e-book review of Fever Pitch, it kind of nudged my curiosity, so I finally decided to give it a try since it had been released on audio. Holy Moly, what an awesome story and audiobook!
Iggy Toma does a fantastic job of narrating this book. His performance not only gives each character their own voice but enhances the emotion and pacing of the story as well, making Fever Pitch a top-notch listen. There’s one part of the story, when he delivers a line at the end of a chapter, that blew my socks off! Sorry, I’d be revealing too much to tell you what it was, though. I’m so impressed with Toma’s narration of Fever Pitch that I’ve started listening to the first book, Love Lessons, and am now eagerly anticipating the third book in this series. And to think, I almost said No Thanks, because of a misunderstanding I had about the author. I’m so glad to see Heidi Cullinan branched out and showed a rare quality of writing that has moved her up to a must-read author for me.
Fever Pitch is a highly recommended audibook!
