An Ali Audiobook Review: Watching and Wanting (Housemates #4) by Jay Northcote and Lewis Carter (Narrator)

Rating: 4.5 stars out of 5

Watching Jude’s cam show stirs desires Shawn’s always denied…

Shawn is adrift. Recently graduated, he’s stuck in a dead-end job that barely pays the bills. His girlfriend dumped him, his friends have moved on, and he’s still in Plymouth—going nowhere.

Jude is a student living in the same shared house. Out and proud, he’s everything Shawn’s been running from since he hit puberty. When Shawn discovers Jude works as a cam boy, he can’t resist the urge to watch one of his shows. It makes Shawn want things that scare him, yet his fascination forces him to confront his attraction.

Keen to explore his bicurious side, Shawn suggests they do a show together. Jude agrees, and things get complicated—and kinky—fast. But Jude isn’t looking to get involved with someone so deep in the closet. If Shawn’s going to get what he wants, he needs to find the courage to stop hiding from himself and be honest about who he is.

I thought this was a great installation to this series.  It drew me right in from the very beginning and kept me engaged the entire time.  I wasn’t sure about this book when I started it because I haven’t been a big fan of Shawn’s in the previous books.  He was a jerk and I wasn’t sure I would like him as a MC.  I ended up but liking him though and I really loved Jude’s character.
There is an interesting plot full of feelz so this is not only erotica but man this book is scorchingly hot.  I kept double checking my ear buds to make sure they were working.  (I didn’t want to scandalize my coworkers)
This story is narrated by Lewis Carter and I loved his narration.  I thought it was excellent.  It added to the emotional impact of the story as well as made the smexy times even hotter.  I have not listened to this narrator before and perhaps he’s new?  Nothing else is listed by him on Audible.  I will definitely be on the lookout for his work in the future though.
Overall this was a great read/listen for me and this is an audiobook I highly recommend.  Although this is the fourth book in the series, it works fine as a standalone.  You will see characters from the previous books but this story in independent of the previous ones.
Cover:  I thought this was a great cover.  It looks great and it matches with the rest of the covers in this series in a cohesive manner.
