    Loved it Listened to the audio and Greg Boudreaux did an amazing job Aaron and Jack have been seeing each other for 8 years 8 Years That is a very long time for them to be sneaking about and not telling their family that they are in a relationship Aaron is afraid to come out to his family Not so much afraid of their reaction but afraid they will be hurt he has kept the fact he is gay a secret from them I loved how Aaron and Jack handle their relationship and the masterboybondage aspect was a complete surprise It was ALL handled wonderfully Jack isn't pressuring Aaron to tell him parents that he is gay and is in fact going out of his way to make sure Aaron knows he would never give him an ultimatum But Aaron still feels the pressure because he knows Jack won't wait for him forever even though Jack isn't sure himself if he can or can'tAaron's family reaction is great and loving and I wish there was another installment with these guys because I want to see about them finally being together Over those 8 years they could only meet in secret and for short periods of time; never being able to express themselves when Aaron's family was near Now that everyone knows and they have admitted their love and are going to live together I wanted just a smidge The ending was great and technically very satisfying but they haven't defined what they want out of their relationship Jack is older than Aaron but I am not sure by how much Jack is BFF with Nathan who married Aarons mother so that means Jack and Nathan and Aarons mom are around the same age so maybe 20 years age difference? Doe Jack want kids? Does Aaron want kids? Do they want to get married? Those answers aren't reuired here but this is why I would love another story for them D5 stars and I do recommend I've not read the other books in this series and was able to follow everything very well Not once did I feel like I was missing something from other books in this series so you should feel free to jump right in

    I have to agree that Aaron making such a big deal about telling his mother he was gay was kind of silly After all she was kind and her best friend Jack was gay But I overlooked all that and enjoyed the story anyway The sex between Jack and Aaron was totally hot I just wish there had been of it Over all this is a good read

    Audible ReviewOverall 4Performance 5Story 5Sweety sexy and everything in betweenWould you consider the audio edition of Nothing Serious to be better than the print version?Although I usually read books before I listen to them I listened to Nothing Serious without having read the book so I can't really answer this uestion I do plan to go back and read this I think after I've read London Bound so I can see where Jack and Aaron first metWhat was one of the most memorable moments of Nothing Serious?There's one scene that sticks with me but I don't want to say what it was because I don't want to spoil it for anyone but it really took me by surprise And not really in a good way If I had been reading instead of listening I would have had to put my Kindle down and walked away I'm not uite sure it was necessary but I'm also not going to knock the author for putting it in there I can see why it would work It just made me a little uncomfortableWhich scene was your favorite?I loved the scene with Aaron and his sister at her wedding I think he really needed to hear what she was sayingWas there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?When Aaron finally came out to his mom Scenes like that always get to me I can only imagine how scared and worried he was about telling her that he was gayAlso when Aaron realized how much hiding their relationship had hurt Jack he never understood what Jack was sacrificingAny additional comments?This was a really terrific story I loved Jack and Aaron and how even after so many years they were so devoted to each other I can't believe they made it 8 years without anyone catching on It was also a little heartbreaking that they had to hide for so long Greg did a wonderful job with the narration I really enjoyed listening to him bring the characters to life I like when a male narrator doesn't go overboard trying to sound like a female I think he did a really good job of just sounding different enough when he did the women's voices

    Angsty BS I realize that coming out is difficult even if you have an accepting family but as a romance novel having the main conflict be I can't tell my family I'm gay because I've waited so long that telling them will hurt them because then they'll know they didn't know is just plain boring

    Nothing Serious by Jessica Jarman is one of those special books when upon finishing it all you want is to read ; you’re sad it’s over; and you find that you must suee about how awesome it is with others who’ve read it Seriously It is just that wonderfulLoosely connected to London Bound the first book in the Bound series also penned by Ms Jarman Nothing Serious picks up this world over eight years forward in time where we see the original hh Nathan and Meg happily married and her two college aged children now grown and moving out on their own The story focuses on the secret affair between Jack Nathan’s out of the closet best friend and Meg’s son Aaron a firmly in the closet ER doctor With Aaron’s sister getting married Jack comes to town placing the pair in close proximity while surrounded by family and friends Even though the pair has been meeting around the world for secret trysts for eight years they’ve never been together around family and friends and the stress of the hidden situation may break the pair apart for goodThe story unfolds organically and beautifully giving both Jack and Aaron time to figure out what each wants from the other and for his own life While the couple has a history of amazing sexual chemistry the two men are in different places in their lives creating a tension that causes the story to hum and vibrate rather that sit stagnant It is evident right from the get go that Jack is deeply emotionally attached to Aaron while Aaron hasn’t really taken the time to realize what Jack means to him Jack has always accepted this enjoying their passionate yet infreuent rendezvous with everything he has He is fun and gentle unwilling to push Aaron into something he’s not ready for endearing him to me so very much Their dynamic captured me completely and I was thoroughly engrossed in their romanceWhat makes Nothing Serious stand out is the depth of the emotional content Ms Jarman masters within the story I cried fat tears of heartbreak and happy tears of joy all within the confines of the book Jack and Aaron’s circumstances gripped me completely not letting go until long after I was finished reading the tale There is nothing frivolous or thoughtless tossed into the book creating a uick read that you won’t want to put down And while the connection between Aaron and Jack is sublime the author has created a cast full of lovable characters each adding wonderful interpersonal connections and dialogue to the story In the end Nothing Serious is a story that will stick with me for a long while; a book I will read again and againMy Rating A Personal FavoriteOriginally posted at that's What I'm Talking AboutReview copy provided by author

    35 stars rounding up for the 5 star narrationI heard some praise about the Nothing Serious audiobook in and online group so when the chance to listen and review the title became available I was excited to see if it lived up to the hype In many ways it did I had never read a book within this series or even by the author before but this title reads perfectly well as a standalone In general I uite liked the characters in Nothing Serious The pairing of Aaron and Jack was somewhat unexpected and the history of them and their interrelationships made things that much interesting I liked these two together and thought the emotional connection though not as intense as the physical side was present and developed as the book progressed Though the Dominantsubmissive trope may not be my favorite the scenes in Nothing Serious were hot well written and their sexual relationship didn’t overshadow their developing romance nor decrease my interest in their story My issue with Nothing Serious was twofold Generally I try not to judge plot devices or an author’s choices for their characters because it’s not my place as the reader but every so often it’s unavoidable and that’s what happened here The reasons for Aaron’s choice to stay closeted didn’t really fit with the character presented especially considering how long he’d been in some sort of relationship with Jack Try as I did to just roll with it this plot point took me out of the story leaving me with uestions than answers and when I did get answers they weren’t all that satisfying The other aspect that kept me from loving Nothing Serious was it all got a little too easy in the end For so much of the book the communication between the men and Aaron making a choice to pursue a relationship with Jack was like pulling teeth then the tipping point occurred which I did really like and it was just a uick fix and dismissal Overall I’d describe Nothing Serious as good but not great What was great about this audiobook was the narration Mr Boudreaux’s tone pacing and character voicesaccents brought the story to life and kept me fully engaged even when I grew frustrated with the characters and some plot points If you’re at all considering this title I highly recommend choosing the audiobook version because the performance definitely enhances the book I was provided a copy of this audiobook The publisher and author had no influence over this review

    This was okay I was a little confused about all the age difference and though I will say bdsm is not my thing and I just plain on ffwd the st andrew's cross scene I enjoyed the sex writing for the most part Eventually it became a little to cliché for me and there were other suicky things that I'm not a fond of my style not the author's fault I don't think the ages were explained clearly between the mom the step dad the kid the boyfriend the best friend the sister and I thought the author was evidently just winging it Also it didn't really discuss how they lived in some Midwestern state and it was totally normal for British people to be there and if Jack was going to Michigan was it? about getting a job and visa issues and etc I mean lol I am an immigrant and even though the ENGLISH are white they still need visas to visit to work etc My problem isn't with the plot but the little details Like if you're gonna focus on people from other countries visiting all the time and all that like make it real and don't gloss over I suppose in the end I kind of just thought the author was like they're rich white people so they have zero problems with money and travel and visas and customs and immigration or whatever God I am a nerd I'm not saying I need essays on the customs officials at the airport; I'm talking about an acknowledgement Like do you even know what you're talking about? In the end its 3 stars for effort The story was good and believable even if details were missing and the angst was good and tragic even if whiny bitches were just whiny at all times great idea poor execution

    This might be my favorite MM ever Jack and Aaron’s story was a little forbidden and a lot dirty I loved their connection their passion and their honesty I loved everything about these characters

    Listening to Nothing Serious is a revisit to one of my all time favorite stories The narration by Greg Boudreaux added emotional depth to this passionate tale From my original review
The story unfolds organically and beautifully giving both Jack and Aaron time to figure out what each wants from the other and for his own life While the couple has a history of amazing sexual chemistry the two men are in different places in their lives creating a tension that causes the story to hum and vibrate rather that sit stagnant It is evident right from the get go that Jack is deeply emotionally attached to Aaron while Aaron hasn’t really taken the time to realize what Jack means to him Jack has always accepted this enjoying their passionate yet infreuent rendezvous with everything he has He is fun and gentle unwilling to push Aaron into something he’s not ready for endearing him to me so very much Their dynamic captured me completely and I was thoroughly engrossed in their romanceAt first the narration by Mr Boudreaux threw me because his “neutral” narrator voice was an unaccented English accent sounding very much like Aaron So when it was Jack’s point of view I wanted the narrator to have a similar English accent that Jack had But I got used to the back and forth after a couple chapters His accents are convincing to this untrained ear His female voices are higher pitched and decisively feminine many strong and matching the characters’ personas In the end I absolutely love Nothing Serious and the timeless romance between Aaron and Jack The narrator does wonderful job with intensity and non verbal sounds and cues bringing the entire experience up a notch My Rating ANarration A
