I used to read the M/F 1Night Stand novellas all the time and had no idea the series had expanded to include M/M stories until a little over a year ago when I bought an audiobook edition of one. So after listening to the sample to make sure I liked the narrator’s voice, I signed up to review the audiobook edition of #The Best Ever and when a new day dawned for Jason and Blake, I was very pleased that I had done so.

Jason was your classic nerd in high school, making him an easy target of bullying. The only bright spot in his sophomore year was that the jock he was tutoring in math wasn’t one of his bullies. In fact, Blake offered to teach one of Jason’s tormentors a lesson – which Jason didn’t take him up on. Fast forward seven years and Jason is on his way to a video game convention in Las Vegas, where he has also made arrangements with Madame Eve for a 1Night Stand encounter. While at the convention, Jason discovers that Blake is there promoting one of the sports video games he is in and he decides to say hi to Blake. Unexpectedly, not only does Blake remember Jason, but he makes a big deal about their reunion and invites Jason to a VIP party that evening. Even though he’s no longer the same timid boy he was in high school, Jason is still full of insecurities and isn’t sure he can hang out with Blake and his friends in a sports bar. But Jason is tired of regretting the things he didn’t do, so he plucks up the courage and heads to meet Blake. After a rocky beginning to the night, the two have a great time and all is well until Blake has to cut out early for a meeting – which works out great because Jason’s 1Night Stand appointment is at the same time. Can you see it coming? They didn’t. At all. And it makes for one really awkward begin to the evening… and left me laughing at them. As expected, Jason and Blake have great chemistry that carries over quite nicely to the bedroom, which makes for a very steamy listen and big decisions to be made the morning after.

This is the first audiobook narrated by Terrence Leonardo that I’ve listened to and I really liked his performance. Leonardo has a pleasant voice and was convincing as both the nerdy Jason and the athletic Blake. Leonardo has an interesting ability to enunciate the words so clearly that they should sound stilted yet does it in a completely conversational manner so that it isn’t stilted at all and the story flows nicely. I feel as though I should mention that there were two or three scenes where the difference in audio quality was apparent, but it wasn’t enough to disrupt my enjoyment of the story or affect my overall rating. I really enjoyed #The Best Ever – including all the hashtags – and look forward to more from both Wadsworth and Leonardo.

DEANNA WADSWORTH might be a bestselling erotica author, but she leads a pretty vanilla life in Ohio with her wonderful husband and a couple adorable cocker spaniels. She has been spinning tales and penning stories since childhood, and her first erotic novella was published in 2010. When she isn’t writing books or brainstorming with friends, you can find her making people gorgeous in a beauty salon. She loves music and dancing, and will often be seen hanging out on the sandbar in the muddy Maumee River or chilling with her hubby and a cocktail in their basement bar. In between all that fun, Deanna cherishes quiet times in her garden when she can let her wildly active imagination have the full run of her mind. Her fascination with people and the interworkings of their relationships has always inspired her to write romance with spice and love without boundaries.
