DIRTY Dive Bar, Book 1

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Andi Arndt

Romantic Fiction • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

When Lydia Green's wedding day becomes her fiancé's coming-out announcement, guitarist-on-hiatus Vaughan Hewson's comforting presence soon becomes much more. Narrator Andi Arndt highlights Lydia's deadpan humor, traversing her changing feelings with elegant proficiency. Vaughan and Lydia's conversations and sexual encounters feature distinct voices that match their genders and personalities. Lydia's voicing is lower, with pure, sweet undertones, while Vaughan's maintains a rough edge. Arndt conveys Vaughan's uncertainty about his shaky music career and his awkward attempts to chart a new course. Her perfect sense of timing, with each thought delivered at the right speed with the right inflection, transforms a predictable story with inane dialogue into an enticing listen. While listeners may question this unlikely rebound romance, they won't doubt Arndt's talent. C.A.
