    Description

    Lights. Camera. Action....

    I've got everything it takes to make it in Tinseltown: confidence, charisma, and a killer chin. Now all I need is a chance.

    But Los Angeles is full of hot young hunks, and talent might not be enough to separate me from the cookie-cutter crowd.

    Well, you know what they say: Fake it till you make it.

    So I devise a wild scheme to get noticed. Pretend I’m someone I'm not—good-bye Will O’Connell of Cincinnati and hello Liam O’Connell of Dublin.

    "Liam" and his talent with accents is enough to get my foot in the door, but I never anticipated meeting the woman who has me more worried about keeping my foot out of my mouth.

    Enter Raven Locke, the dark-haired bombshell who puts the ‘tude in tattooed.

    On set, she’s the costumer tasked with fitting my pants, but all I can think about is how to get into hers.

    As my—I mean, Liam’s—budding career begins to heat up, so do our feelings.

    While Raven pursues her passion for fashion; I chase her heart.

    Our picture-perfect screenplay seems sure to send us riding off onto Sunset Boulevard....

    Until Raven finds out that Comedy and Tragedy aren’t the only masks I'm wearing. Our romance might be destined for the cutting-room floor, unless I can salvage our story with a plot twist she won't see coming.

    The Chameleon Effect is the debut solo novel written and performed by acclaimed, award-winning romance narrator Joe Arden, with a special guest appearance from Maxine Mitchell.

    A secret-identity romance from the man with the secret identity!

    This male POV rom-com has it all: lots of heat, plenty of heart, and a Hollywood-worthy HEA.

    What a debut!

    Joe Arden's debut novel WHAT? !
    He is one of the best narrators in romance, and needs no introduction but as an author? Joe has a place in this space! He knows romance and man can he write romance! This story written in the male POV is refreshing, real and swoony (ok steamy as well! ) You will laugh, you will feel, you will enjoy this ride with WilLiam and Raven. She's a quirky strong heroine, he's a kindhearted, heart on the sleeve hero. And their story is magic on the page!

    Joe's narration is amazing. Special mention to his interpretation of WilLiam's niece, who is a show stopper on her own. And the cameos by Maxine Mitchell bring this audiobook full circle.

    Turns out Joe Arden's not just a pretty voice, he's a damn good author as well!

    BRAVO.. A GREAT STORY WITH CHARM & HEART

    Well Mr Arden, you should be very pleased with yourself right now because wow, this debut novel has a great cast of characters, an entertaining and flirty storyline and the perfect narrator - you. And just look at all the glowing five star reviews. Because you are the creative storyteller AND your endless talents brought the cast of characters to life bringing humor, sexy sizzles, heart, heartbreak, romance and charm as budding Actor Will puts on his sexy Irish brogue, morphs into Dubliner Liam and gets the part and the woman of his dreams. But unfortunately he gets himself into ever deepening water too.. and I loved it all.

    Worth a credit? Yes, a very entertaining and enjoyable story written by the multi-talented Joe Arden, narrated by the vocal genius that is Joe Arden.. and me thinks did he perhaps pose for the cover too???? 😉

    Early review, but loving story and storytelling so far!

    I’m only on Chapter 4, but as a big fan of Joe Arden (narrator), I’m so loving Joe Arden (author)! I can not wait for more stories from this all star matchup! 😆

    He’s works his strengths in accents and character voices. So thrilled to hear that his writing is just as fine!

    BTW, love the Skyline and Ed Norton references! (Both related to current/former hometowns.) LA and NY are awesome, but there’s loads of character in these lesser glam places too!

    Small town love in big city space!

    This book has it all. I have laughed more than I anticipated, and swooned so hard that it is causing me to give my husband the side eye….Anyway, this book is so good. I got all the feels for both Liam and Raven. These characters have so much depth and the banter is amazing!!

    Let’s talk about the narration now. Holy hell did Joe Arden knock it out of the park with this one. Joe’s ability to switch back and forth between characters so effortlessly, amazed me still to this day.

    This will not seem like a debut book once you start to listen. Don’t hesitate just do it!!!!!

    Funny, Steamy, and Lots of Banter

    Joe Arden makes his debut as a solo author with The Chameleon Effect. Performed by Mr. Arden himself (because let’s be honest only Joe should and could perform as Will/Liam), with a cameo from the talented Maxine Mitchell.

    A low angst, sweet, and steamy rom-com, with plenty of banter, feels, and heart. Also, all of the Easter eggs for the Joe fans were a nice touch and the dedication to his mom had me tearing up.

    Written from the male POV with interludes of the female POV presented in a creative manner. This story was written in a way that makes it perfect for narration, which is no surprise. There are a few narrators/authors that write in this style and it really makes the story flow beautifully. One of the things I loved about Liam and Raven is their likability. They're the type of characters that you want to be friends with. While Liam and Raven's relationship seemed to be effortless and almost too easy, the depth of the characters and the black point of the story balances that ease. I hope in the future that we'll see stories from other characters in this book.

    My modern day Bukowski 🤍🤗

    ⭐️ 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐦𝐞𝐥𝐞𝐨𝐧 𝐄𝐟𝐟𝐞𝐜𝐭 REVIEW⭐️

    A secret identity romance from the man with the secret identity!…

    There really is no better hook than that! Well… unless you have over- the- moon talent, the way Joe Arden does.

    I had the honor to be one of the lucky ones to receive an advance copy and let me tell you it exceeded all of my expectations. From the very first page I was hooked. I was hooked with the blurb alone! Joe really brought out how far one is willing to go in order to achieve our dreams.

    This story really brought out all the feels, swoon and heat. The lovely playful banter between Raven and Will was absolutely to die for, including Raven’s flirty edge that was laced with feminine confidence because…who doesn’t love a confident woman?

    Another thing I enjoyed was getting to go on the journey with Raven and Will, visiting amazing hot spots in L.A, including a Dodgers game which for me was an added amazing bonus!

    Congratulations Joe on your first solo written book. You really brought your dedication to the table, your placed your heart not only on your sleeve but along every single freaking line that you wrote. Your voice and artistry in this story was immaculate. I must say that I am utterly proud of every ounce of yourself that you poured into this project. I can’t wait to see what more brilliant things you will put out into the world on your journey!

    And knowing that you and I are both deep fans of Bukowski, you really went all out and didn’t try to be a writer…you are a writer. You wrote and wrote to your heart’s content and gave it your all and that is the main thing I admire about you, and your work ethic. And just like Bukowski said…”Find what you love and let it kill you.” And you for sure lived up to that.

    Ah-Mazing!!! 5⭐️

    This book right here. The Chameleon Effect. This is going to be a love story that I compare all others to. This book is smart, funny, witty, a little spicy and a lot sweet. Joe put his heart and soul into these words and you can tell when he speaks them.

    One of my favorite parts about this story is that Liam and Raven were written so perfectly. Raven was a little sassy who wasn’t about to drop her guard right away. Liam…what can I say??? He’s sexy and he’s swoony…he actually courted Raven. Took her on actual DATES. This whole story felt so genuine and real and I loved every single thing about it.

    Now-Joe. He wrote this perfect story so it needed perfect narration. He absolutely delivered. His accents and his transitions and don’t even get me started on the dropped register in chapter 25 🥵. Joe is just so flipping talented it’s oozing out of his pores. He’s also just a really funny and nice human.

    Maxine’s interludes we’re also on pointtttt. Maxine just has a fun, smart vibe about her voice and she nailed it.

    In short, this audiobook is 5 Hollywood stars and you should definitely, absolutely, unequivocally go listen. Go on now! Git! Use that credit! You won’t regret it! ❤️

    Fantastic!

    This book by our favorite narrator Joe Arden is his first solo publication and it was everything I’d hope for and more! His characters make you fall in love immediately, especially Lexi Sprite the spitfire niece. The story was sweet, fun, and sexy with Joe’s way with words. Listen to it now!

    WOW! Incredible solo debut!

    I have always been a huge fan of Joe Arden as a romance narrator and his debut as writer and co-author with Lauren Blakely in "How to Get Lucky" was fantastic. But the question remained, could he do it alone without the guidance and experience of such a successful co-author as Lauren Blakely? The answer is an unequivocal and completely honest YES!! I was crossing my fingers and hoping beyond hope that this debut novel as a solo author would be just as good or better, and would live up to the standards I have come to expect from successful contemporary romance authors. I can honestly say that this has been one of the best books I have listened to in a really long time.

    Of course the performance was incredible and filled with so much raw and genuine emotion as you would expect from someone narrating the words that they wrote, but I believe that his connection to this story went much deeper than just the fact that he wrote the words and that he was truly giving his readers a piece of himself.

    One thing I really appreciated with these characters was their "realness". Liam is a fully developed character without being pigeon holed into the stereotypical "alpha" or "cinnamon roll", but a character that you want to root for and believe that he could actually exist in real life. Raven is no "damsel in distress", but she also hasn't sworn off men or built ridiculous emotional walls that must be torn down. She's just a real woman who has been through a lot and come out the other side stronger, capable of taking care of herself, yet still willing and wanting to connect and fall in love and share her life with a partner.

    Joe Arden has narrated so much romance that he was able to take the best of that experience and craft an incredibly beautiful story with well-rounded and thought out characters, eloquent descriptive language, witty and clever banter, seductive and sensual intimate scenes, and a believable and well-paced plot. I can't think of one single thing I would change.

    When you already have a fantastic story and then add the smooth and swoony accents, the brilliance of including the interludes with Maxine Mitchell, a satisfying HEA, and Joe's naturally brilliant narration, you get a 5 star listen that will be enjoyed over and over again. Bravo!

    A Debut Novel Worthy of a Hollywood Star

    Oh my, Stitches!!! The Chameleon Effect by Joe Arden is one that you don't want to miss. It's a romance comedy about a movie star with a fake identity and you will swoon over the up and coming "Irish" star, Liam.

    William O'Connell has everything it takes to make it in the cut throat world of Los Angeles. There's only one problem, it's full of just as equality talented and hunky actors. He is determined to stand out among the crowd and creates Liam, an Irish alter-ego of sorts. It works perfectly for him. That is until Raven comes into his life. She is a spunky tattooed costumer with her set of goals that she determined to meet. Will their insta-love carry them into the sunset with an HEA or will it fizzle out on the cutting room floor? Find out for yourself!

    In the words of our heroine Raven, Joe Arden has that thing that can't be taught. His debut novel has "charm, charisma, and confidence." He takes his readers on an adventure around some iconic parts of LA, on a pretty romantic date to the Hollywood Forever Cemetery for a movie under stars and gives them an inside look at what it takes to keep that alter-ego going. If you had never heard of Joe Arden before reading this book, you would never know that it was his first solo experience as an author. I have said it before, and I will say it again. There is nothing that Mr. Arden can't do. He is perfection in the booth as a narrator and now he can add a 5- Hollywood- star worthy author to his repertoire. I can't wait to listen to the audiobook of The Chameleon Effect and for Joe himself to bring the story to life and to feel all the feels again.

    **Audiobook Review**
    There is something special that happens to an already fantastic story and read when you get to experience it through audio. Joe Arden not only wrote this charming story of Will/Liam and Raven but he also breathes life into his characters and words. I loved being able to read this book early but the audio gives Mr. Arden's story a whole new character. Will/Liam is a character that is a "chameleon," he can do so many different voices/accents and can just turn them off/on with a drop of hat, and Joe proves that he can do just that. He seamlessly flips between Irish, British, a little Australian, and his normal accents. Not just but he shows his skills at jump from a "Californian Surfer", an over excited director, his female voice, and even his young child voice. There is a reason he a prolific narrator and it shows as he brings Will/Liam and Raven to life. Listeners get a cameo appearance from the equally as talented and dexterous, Maxine Mitchell. She lights up this audiobook with the interludes from Raven's "Sewing Tok". She gives Arden's listeners a snippet into Raven's head.

    Trust me when I say, you don't want to miss this audiobook. I can't wait for more not just from Maxine Mitchell and Joe Arden, the narrator, but also from Joe Arden, the author.
