Chip and Foster quickly bumble through their initial meet and greet but ultimately, form a fast love connection. Coincident along Chip and Foster, there is another love story about students Brad and Jason, which I actually enjoyed far better, as their evolution seemed more organic, realistic, and fun, all with a good emotional oomph to it.
For those of you who need to know, this was narrated by Charlie David, who is pleasantly expressive but gave no character distinction. Though an enjoyable listen, as with all straightforward narrations, it took more concentration than usual to stay the course. Overall, despite this being a sexual read, it is not an explicit one. I hate to say it, but for me, this was just nicely, only ok.

And when I saw that this was a GFY? Now, when I DNF an audiobook it is not done lightly. However, after over 4 hours of not liking what I was hearing I decided to call it quits. My main problem with this book has to do both with the narrator and the writing style. I’m talking POV changes sentence to sentence, paragraph to paragraph. There is no sense of who is talking because the POV is continuously shifting.
To make matters worse, there are four MCs, so I was honestly confused a lot of the time. In addition, the narrator, Charlie David, had absolutely no change in tone or intonation from person to person. He read each character and part exactly the same perhaps because there was too much head hopping for him to keep track?? If I wanted to hear a book read entirely in one voice, I would just read it out loud to myself. I want a narrator that makes me feel the story, and a lot of that has to do with vocal differentiation for me.
After listening to Chase in Shadowwhere Sean Crisden manages at least 7 different voices, this just felt flat to me. It isn’t that Charlie David doesn’t have an expressive and pleasant voice, it just isn’t what I’m looking for in a narrator. In terms of the GFY, which I usually love, it didn’t work for me.

I found Chip’s sudden sexuality change to be unrealistic. He seemed almost grossed out by other men and it made the GFY seem totally out of the blue.
To top it off, it was strongly insta-lovely I remember they were talking like their second or third time meeting and Chip said he realized that he loved Foster?? I also didn’t like having two couples in the story. It took away the focus from Chip and Foster and it felt awkward for me. All in all, I didn’t like this story. While I would buy another of Eric Arvin’s paranormal or fantasy books in a heartbeat, I’ll pass on his contemporaries.

This book was the definition of fun. Arvin should be VIP So, read this book as soon as you can because it cracked my shizz right up. I’ll definitely be reading Arvin’s work again.
For rizzy, I can’t get enough. View all 12 comments. Aug 29, Lori rated it it was amazing Shelves: So I was kept up until stupid o’clock by Eric Hojbres and sexual tension that you could cut with a knife. Honestly the ST in this book is arvun, there is no way you can just stop reading half way through.
So there am I this morning, bleary eyed trying sencilllos give the dog his insulin injection after definitely not enough sleep – it was touch and go whether it would be the dog or me getting the jab. Reading, an extreme sport. Simple Men, well it’s a great book about relationships. About falling in love.
There are four main characters or two potential couples. Chip, the American football coach and Foster the new chaplain, and two of the American football players, Arvi and Brad.
He’s in a relationship with a fellow teacher, Lynn, neither of them are particularly committed to it, but it’s convenient for now. Then Chip is introduced to Lynn’s friend Foster. Now I’ve been at it with the highlighting features again because, well isn’t this the best line? How the world froze and everything that wasn’t the chaplain faded to the dullness of a haphazard etching.
Of course Chip hadn’t ever really considered that it would be a man he fell in love with, it had always been women in his bed before. Chip was confused about it to start with, and, when things weren’t working between him and Foster, he did sleep with another woman but it didn’t work. He tried thinking about other men – but that didn’t work either. I think this is what I aarvin about this story so much, the message is you don’t fall in love with a sex or a gender – you fall in love with a person.
Chip loved Foster, so until he met him and realised this nothing, man, woman nor beast though just to be clear, there were no beasts in this story, at least not in the loving stakes was going to be right. Foster, the other part of this potential couple was gay, but he too had been in a bad relationship. The relationship where he was the senckllos gay vicar, a bit of a finger stuck up to the world – that was until a bigger ‘up yours’ came along.
So he started work at the university and hoped to quietly lick his wounds. Like Chip he wasn’t expecting to fall in love. It is actually Foster who nearly causes this relationship to finish – his friendship with Chip’s ex, Lynn, was nearly the end of them. Not wanting Lynn to be hurt, the way his ex hurt him, he called it off.
Yep, after stomach clenching moments waiting for them to get together, he finishes it. Oh okay, I’ll just read one more chapter, it’s not that late anyway it is, it’s really, really late. Brad and Jason were the other main characters. They were the kind of ‘before’ glimpse into Chip’s life, the way things could have been for him, if he’d met Foster a couple of decades earlier.
Best friends, they liked nothing better than a prank, except maybe a bit of rough-housing. They’ll take on any bet – better than scrubbing the toilets out, right?
So when they are dared to kiss each other in the shower they take it in their stride and happily snog away. They are both aware that this actually means a hell of a lot more to them both than the audience of peers watching. Again Arvin let’s us into Jason’s head perfectly, “He had to push the kiss off like it meant homgres at all. He wanted to know how the kiss felt for Brad. That’s what he wanted. I loved how, even though there was all this confusion and the hobres sexual tensiontheir friendship was still front and centre, they didn’t let that slip.
