Changing Lines by RJ Scott & V.L. Locey Audiobook Tour

Can Tennant show Jared that age is just a number, and that love is all that matters?

The Rowe Brothers are famous hockey hotshots, but as the youngest of the trio, Tennant has always had to play against his brothers’ reputations. To get out of their shadows, and against their advice, he accepts a trade to the Harrisburg Railers, where he runs into Jared Madsen. Mads is an old family friend and his brother’s one-time teammate. Mads is Tennant’s new coach. And Mads is the sexiest thing he’s ever laid eyes on.

Jared Madsen’s hockey career was cut short by a fault in his heart, but coaching keeps him close to the game. When Ten is traded to the team, his carefully organized world is thrown into chaos. Nine years his junior and his best friend’s brother, he knows Ten is strictly off-limits, but as soon as he sees Ten’s moves, on and off the ice, he knows that his heart could get him into trouble again.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

When the opportunity to review the audiobook edition of Changing Lines came up, I jumped at it. RJ Scott and V.L. Locey’s Harrisburg Railers series is a favorite among our reviewers, so I couldn’t wait to cue up the audiobook and discover why. On top of that, learning that Tennant and Jared’s romance was being narrated by Sean Crisden meant I was in for an aural treat as well. Yet even knowing that the book was going to be good, I still wasn’t prepared for just how much I would enjoy it. And even four listens later, I’m still enamored with Ten and Jared and the Harrisburg Railers.

To start, I loved the opening scene. With a simple family video conference call, we learn so much about Tennant Rowe, the baby of a hockey family who’s spent a good part of his life trying to escape his older brothers’ shadows. I couldn’t help but wonder if his decision to sign with the Railers was an act of defiance toward his eldest brother, a calculated move to a team his brothers had no influence over and that had picked him for his talent and not because of who his brothers were, or both. Regardless of his motivations, the Railers turn out to be exactly what Ten needs, and not just because it puts Jared in his path. As for Jared, the man made a valiant effort of not getting involved with his former best friend’s little brother, but he had no hope in the face of a determined Ten. Fortunately for Ten – even if he didn’t think so at the time – the nine-year age difference means that Jared has more patience and the ability to delay gratification, and this makes for a slow-burn romance with some very sensual encounters before they go for the goal. This also means that the two get to know each other as men and build the foundation for their relationship based on friendship and intimacy as well as the long-time history. Because the story is told in shifting points of view, we also get to see what’s going on in Ten and Jared’s personal lives away from hockey and away from each other, and this made for a fuller picture of each man, making it impossible for me to not be invested in them as individuals and as a couple. And that epilogue!

I always enjoy Sean Crisden’s vocal performances and Changing Lines was no exception. The voices he created for Ten and Jared were wonderful representations of their differences – youthful vs. mature, rash vs. measured. Crisden’s ability to convey Ten and Jared’s emotions had me riding the rollercoaster with them. And the voice he created for Jared’s almost-father-in-law perfectly encompassed the man’s know-it-all arrogance and made me want to throat punch him… repeatedly… several times. Hmmm, I guess hockey really is a violent sport (lol). Changing Lines was such an entertaining audiobook and I completely understand why my co-reviewers love this series so much. Hopefully, Scott and Locey have plans to release the rest of the series on audio because I’d really love to listen to them all, especially if Crisden is back at the mic for First Season. Until then, I’ll be listening to Changing Lines again whenever I need a sexy M/M hockey romance.

RJ’s goal is to write stories with a heart of romance, a troubled road to reach happiness, and most importantly, that hint of a happily ever after.

RJ is the author of the over one hundred novels and discovered romance in books at a very young age. She realized that if there wasn’t romance on the page, she could create it in her head, and is a lifelong writer.

She lives and works out of her home in the beautiful English countryside, spends her spare time reading, watching films, and enjoying time with her family.

The last time she had a week’s break from writing she didn’t like it one little bit and has yet to meet a bottle of wine she couldn’t defeat.

She’s always thrilled to hear from readers, bloggers and other writers.

V.L. Locey loves worn jeans, yoga, belly laughs, Doctor Who, Torchwood, walking, reading and writing lusty tales, Greek mythology, the New York Rangers, comic books, and coffee. (Not necessarily in that order.) She shares her life with her husband, her daughter, one dog, two cats, two Jersey steers and a flock of assorted domestic fowl.

When not writing lusty tales, she can be found enjoying her day with her menagerie in the rolling hills of Pennsylvania with a cup of fresh java in hand.

Sean Crisden

I have been a professional voice artist since 2006 (wait, people pay me for this?) but my history extends further than that. As a child, I was known as “Radio Man” for the articulate, listenable qualities within my voice. I don’t know any other kid who took quite so much pleasure in standing up and reading out loud Tikki Tikki Tembo or Bunnicula for their class.

This lead to an early pursuit of performing and I performed for nearly a decade with the prog rock band Divided Sky as vocalist and guitar player. I have expanded my abilities into on-camera acting, appearing in numerous commercials and films including M. Night Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender. I was even fortunate enough to act in and choreograph the combat sequences in Le Meduse Rouge.

I continue to grow, develop and refine my talents in an ongoing effort to find fulfillment by drinking of my creative well. I also train in several martial arts and do my best despite the lure of my bed and apple pie to stay in excellent physical shape.
