    Description

    Stefan Joss just can't win. Not only does he have to go to Texas in the middle of summer to be the man of honor in his best friend Charlotte's wedding, but he's expected to negotiate a million-dollar business deal at the same time. Worst of all, he’s thrown for a loop when he arrives to see the one man Charlotte promised wouldn’t be there: her brother, Rand Holloway. Stefan and Rand have been mortal enemies since the day they met, so Stefan is shocked when a temporary cease-fire sees the usual hostility replaced by instant chemistry.

    Though leery of the unexpected feelings, Stefan is swayed by a sincere revelation from Rand, and he decides to give Rand a chance. But their budding romance is threatened when Stefan’s business deal goes wrong: the owner of the last ranch he needs to secure for the company is murdered. Stefan’s in for the surprise of his life as he finds himself in danger as well.

    An amazing story!

    I loved this story. Even with the "muppet" voice for some of the side characters, this book was funny and tender. I loved both the main characters. I have another audio by Mary Calmes and cant wait to hear more from her.

    an amazing find Mary Calmes

    wonderful stories, Mary Calmes says she knows what her characters smell like and it certainly works for me. I fell in love with all 3 books, listen to them over and over, I hope audilbe brings in some more of her work, there is quite a lot of it out there. The narrator is wonderful too. If your looking for a great love story, with people to fall in love with, friends and family you wish were yours, Mary Calmes is your girl. Her stories are definitely the feel good variety. The Guardian and Change of Heart have a sci fi twist but are still wonderful, Timing was my 1st listen and I was hooked in the 1st few minutes.
    Mary Calmes is one of the few authors that make you look up and say "thank you"!

    Fanfiction Has Higher Quality

    I'd like to start by saying that Mary Calmes is NOT a bad writer. The writing in and of itself is good. Her weakness lies in her characterization.

    This is the second Mary Calmes novel I have listened to and I've noticed some patterns in her writing.

    One- her protagonists were both 'too perfect'. They're what I like to call Mary-Sues. In Timing, Steffan was a flawless little charmer, and her protagonist in the other book I listened to was much the same way. I understand that she wants her main character to look a certain way, but the point doesn't need to be driven home EVERY OTHER SENTENCE. Steffan, did have some flaws- but even the flaws, in the way they were presented, were just totally unbelievable. The character was too much, too perfect, and instead of coming across as the way I'm sure Calmes intended, he was just obnoxious.

    Two- The style of romance she writes reminds me very much of anime characters. If you're into UST and males who either constantly top or bottom- story lines that are rushed and with little depth... If you are into that, than I can see this entertaining you.

    The story itself isn't bad, and some of the characters are even cute.

    However, personally I couldn't get past the stereotyping and weak characterization for the the lead couple.

    Lastly... a word on the reader. The reader isn't bad. He has a fun voice and a lot of personality. I only have two complaints about him. One- He reads all of Mary Calmes books and uses the same voices for the lead and the love interest. The love interest always sounds goofy to me, like he's just trying too hard. I could live with it, though. What really got to me was that one of the characters, the best friend's fiance, sounded just like a muppet. Who seriously talks like that? It killed the character. It really did.

    All in all... I would tell you to avoid Mary Calmes books, unless it's truly the style of writing you're into. I see this book really appealing to teenage girls... But I think most people would side with me. There are better homosexual romance novels on audible...

    Some of the characters sounded like Muppets.....

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The way the narrator did the character voices. I mean, Stef was okay but ye gads Rand just sounded goofy so I couldn't take him seriously and some of the characters just sounded ridiculous. Namely Ben. He sounded like Grover. And the women... *shudder*

    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The whole enemies to lovers thing was the most interesting thing about it. The least interesting aspect was the 'secret' Charlotte was keeping.

    What didn’t you like about Sean Crisden’s performance?

    The voices were grating. He read the narrative passages okay, but the voices he used for some of the characters was just unpleasant. If I'd met people who sounded like that in real life, I'd either walk away or slap them.

    Did Timing (Gay Romance) inspire you to do anything?

    I don't know. Live on a ranch maybe?

    Any additional comments?

    Get rid of the 'Gay Romance' text in the title. I doesn't need to be there.

    Boring.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    It falls in the chasm between porn and novel, doing neither well or interestingly. Save your money, do not buy this.

    One of my all time favorites!

    I just had to listen to this one again before starting after the sunset the second book in the series and I just love these characters even though I've bought his are your book twice once on iTunes and again later on audible from my phone I just had to take it with me the story so when I am wanted a fighting raucous heartfelt story it Keeping Promise Rock by Amy Lane and the first two books from the Cut and Run series are amongst my favorite and the ones that I just had to have on my audible account this story Timing is truly one of my favorites and I highly recommended if you like any of these stories I have mentioned you'll just love "Timing" by Mary Calmes.

    Oh and I kind of forgot one of my favorite parts about this story was fell fill the caf and the ongoing, your cow? You don't have a cow. It's towards the end of the story, it made me laugh so hard the first time and no matter how many times I listen to the story I always laugh and laugh at that scene and throughout the entire book laugh cry smile it's always left me feeling so good everytime I listen to this story and hear about Stefan Joss and Rand Holloway. Thank you Mary Calmes for your stories and Sean Crisden for your performances and thanks to the production team for if it weren't for you and people like you making audio books like this one I wouldn't get to enjoy these stories, thank you all.

    Feel good gay romance

    This is a real feel good romance. Stefan is a guy loved by all woman and even straight men because of his entertaining and funny personality. Only Rand, the borther of his best friend Charlotte, seams to dislike him.
    Big manly Rand on the other hand struggles with the fact that he desires a man - and additionally a man who can have everybody and is never without another guy.
    But now finally Stefan is single - and Rand is no longer willing to look but wants to take...and Stefan is willing to give. Their encounters are so good to listen to, the whole book is a real feel-good one, the lovestory entertaining and with enough suspense to keep you listening.

    The narroter is one of my favs - Sean Crisden fits perfect for Stefans character and I lke how he told the story.
