A Barb the Zany Old Lady Audiobook Review: See Me (Lightning Tales #3) by K.C. Wells and Joel Leslie (Narrator)


Rating: 4.5 stars out of 5

Narrator: Joel Leslie

Great story and great narration! There’s not much I love more than enemies to lovers, gay men in touch with their feminine side, drag queens, coming out, and stories of redemption. This one has it all, including a new favorite couple brought to life by the very talented voice actor, Joel Leslie.

Marty Cavanaugh is deep in the closet, as the story opens, and only allows himself to have quick oral sex with drag queens, aka men dressed as women. Call it a subconscious attempt to pretend he’s straight, or call it deplorable. Either way, he’s coming to see just how damaged he is. When the new drag queen at his favorite club refuses to meet him for his usual, he’s intrigued. Little does he know, he’s been spotted by her, and she recognizes him as the boy who hung with the pack who made his life miserable in high school. Adrian/Adrienne has never forgotten Marty and now sees her chance to get back at him by shining the spotlight of humiliation on him at her drag show.

But payback doesn’t taste quite as good as revenge usually does, so when remorse and regret begin to eat at Adrien’s conscience he discovers that this Marty is not the same as the boy who was afraid to stand up to his bully buddies to defend Adrien when they were kids. This Marty is willing to come out of his self-imposed closet to stand up for a coworker and to listen to Adrien when he comes to Marty’s house to apologize. And when the two discover just how well they fit together, the romance, which has been waiting in the wings for years, finally blossoms.

In the hands of this outstanding narrator, the story comes to life, and I felt as if I were sitting in the audience at a movie theater watching it unfold. The story itself was terrific as the author filled in the backstory of both characters and incorporated visits from both couples from the first two books as well. I always love a chance to revisit past couples as it adds more dimension to each subsequent story. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this one to anyone who enjoys MM romance, and in particular, stories that include the tags I previously mentioned as well as a bit of fem lingerie, and yes, virgins. Really, what’s not to like about his one? Highly recommended—in audio form, of course!

Cover art is stunning and works for the story.

Narrated By: Joel Leslie

Adrian DeSoto spent most of his time in high school being bullied and beaten up, simply because he was perceived as gay. Always slight, effeminate, he was the perfect victim for guys like Martin Cavanaugh, one of the high school jocks. When it all got too much, Adrian was faced with two options, one more devastating than the other. Eleventh grade saw a new Adrian, one who hid his fears and pain behind a mask in a bid to survive.

Eleven years later, and Adrienne is one of the top drag acts in Orlando. She’s fierce, funny, and exuberant. A face from the past gives her a shock, and after that there’s only one thing on her mind – revenge.

Marty Cavanaugh has a particular kink. He loves it when a drag queen goes down on him. But that’s as far as it goes. He won’t admit to himself what’s under that tight fitting dress. And then he meets Adrienne and his whole world goes into a tailspin…

Warning – Contains men in drag, honey! You have been warned.

Author Bio

Born and raised in the north-west of England, K.C. WELLS always loved writing. Words were important. Full stop. However, when childhood gave way to adulthood, the writing ceased, as life got in the way. K.C. discovered erotic fiction in 2009, when the purchase of a ménage storyline led to the startling discovery that reading about men in love was damn hot. In 2012, arriving at a really low point in life led to the desperate need to do something creative. An even bigger discovery waited in the wings—writing about men in love was even hotter….

K.C. now writes full-time and is loving every minute of her new career. The laptop still has no idea of what hit it… it only knows that it wants a rest, please. And it now has to get used to the idea that where K.C goes, it goes.

And as for those men in love that she writes about? The list of stories just waiting to be written is getting longer… and longer….

K.C. loves to hear from readers.
