Publisher's Summary

"I need you to teach me how to be gay."

Logan Moore is finally ready to come out of the closet. His days of playing football are far behind him, he has graduated from the Culinary Institute of America (CIA), and his bakery, Moore Delicious, is finally in the black. Although he spends more time talking to his cats than he does people, he technically has time for a social life now that he has hired two new employees. In short, Logan is completely out of excuses to stay in the closet, where it is warm and cozy and he never has to worry about how to dress, what to say, or who is watching. So he turns to his older brother's friend for guidance. And if that friend just happens to be his longtime crush and if one thing might lead to another...well, that would just be icing on the cake.

Chance Blevins is a math geek through and through, who is more than happy to spend his nights curled up with his dog, Luna. With a few toxic relationships in his past, Chance contents himself with friends with benefits and fantasies involving his best friend's very straight soon-to-be brother-in-law, Logan. Because of a verbal slip the day they met and a teasingly demanded vow of secrecy, he believes that Logan actually works for the CIA, making him even further out of his league. When Logan comes to him for help with what he can only assume is a cover identity, he is more than happy to oblige.

A Chance for Moore is a quirky friends-to-lovers, first-time gay romance between two sexy, pet-loving geeks. It has a happily ever after ending as well as a gratuitous car chase, obscene bachelorette party pastries, grown men dressing their "furbabies" in ridiculous hats, and truly terrible math-based innuendo.

A Great Listen And A Great Book!

This is the first book in The Moore Romance Series. A delightful book the writing was amazing. The plot was entertaining and it was steady throughout the book. I found the story and characters spellbinding. The characters were well developed and thought out. Chance and Logan are the MC’s of this book. With cats and dogs being fur babies. One reviewer said they had a problem with not knowing who some people were. In the prologue it says who Greg is. I didn’t have same problem I knew who people were. There was humor, Luna, Siamese Cats, a bakery, friends, family, a stalker, emotions, CIA and so much more in this book.

Here is a quote from the book, “So… you’re a Hugger.” Oh God. Could the ground just open and swallow me up? “Apparently!” Amelia chirped and squeezed my bicep. “So, we brought some muscle and the truck. Greg’s stuff is already inside but there’s plenty of room. All the other Moores will meet us at Greg and Dani’s new place. Take us to your boxes!” Chance waved us in…”Smoooooooth,” she teased.”. There is more but you will need to read the book which I can highly recommend. I voluntarily read an advance copy of this book for an honest review.

For The narration I have to say that I didn’t care for his voice. But that's ok that is very subjective to each person (like you prefer blue eyes to brown). But knowing that I can be very picky here I didn’t just stop listening. And I’m glad because he did an incredible job narrating this book. He was very expressive with the emotions and actions in the book. He also has different voices for each character. And these are two of the most important things for me in an audiobook. I also like how he did the text messages throughout the book that made it so the flow of the story went smoothly and there was no confusion. And I was able to completely enjoy this book with such great narration.

Cute 💕💕

This was my first book by Alex Miska, V.Soffer, and it won't be my last. The story was sweet, and it definitely had all the feels. The story is about Logan and chase. Logan is in the closet, and chase is out and proud. Logan has had a crush on chase since they met. Logan asks chase for some help, and there relationship starts. They have a few misunderstandings, but the story flows nicely. The narration was ok. I would definitely recommend this book.

Sean Lenhart was great!

New to me narrator Sean Lenhart performs this story wonderfully. He has good character voices, nice timing, a delightfully emotive narration - it all worked together to make this, on the whole, a very pleasant listen.

There are some great points to the story - the characters are likable, the sex is hot, the humor is funny and on point. Unfortunately, while the narration was very entertaining and there is a very sweet HEA - they just couldn't make up for the numerous flaws in the story.

The story is burdened with one completely nonsensical plot line, one terribly underdeveloped plot line, and another plot line that wasn't well explained, and it all combined to make this at times a very frustrating listen.

Some are things that would normally be ignored while reading a book because you can skim ahead, but that's virtually impossible to do with an audiobook and still know what's happening, so you have to listen to it all, which can exacerbate some areas that wouldn't normally chafe because they'd be skimmed when visually reading.

This really needed some cleanup editing to deal with the convoluted plot lines and its glut of manufactured and unnecessary angst, while missing a plum opportunity to increase angst naturally through the stalker storyline.

Ultimately, this could have been a total "nope" for me but it was saved through the humor and the narration. Sean Lenhart certainly delivered a good performance and kept me listening until the end.

However, if you like humor, lots of hot sex, and don't mind a bit of illogical storytelling, then your mileage may absolutely vary.

Very slow and monotonous!

The book was very slow and hard to get interested in. So much back and forth between characters. I almost quit it several times but kept listening hoping it would get better, but no such luck. The narrator didn’t help as he sounded the same most of the time. No change in voicing.

Silly and a bit insipid

While I enjoyed one of these stories the rest are too contrived and predictable. I also found the narration irritating and missing the inflections required by the story.

Sweet and fun, wonderful narration

Such a sweet and fun read. I didn't have any high hopes going into this book but I absolutely adored it and the family - not forgetting the adorable pets. I'm jumping straight into book 2!
Sean Lenhart did a fantastic job narrating this story, truly the perfect fit and one I am going to be looking out for in the future.

Want Moore!!!

This is the first in a series and you are instantly drawn into their story and lives. The narrator does an amazing job of bringing the characters to life. Logan and Chance have an interesting beginning to their relationship with Chance believing something that was meant to be a joke. Then Logan decides that he can be himself and asks Chance to help him. You will find yourself laughing at points and all but bawling at others.

Love it

I adored this book when I first read it and it was excellent in audio format! It’s just so god damn funny! Sean Lenhart is not a narrator I was previously familiar with but I just loved his voice right from page 1 and his narration style was wonderful.

The actual storyline was not particularly original on paper. Logan Moore who used to play football and was a typical jock in college until an injury led him to decide to go to culinary school instead and Chance Blevins his older brothers fiancés best friend have had a crush on each other for 5 years and when Logan decides to come out of the closet he enlists the help of Chance. However, what made this book truly stand out was how beautifully it was written and how well this translated in to audio and how laugh out loud funny it was throughout.

I just loved Chance and Logan, dual POV really helped in audio to show how they felt about each other and their chemistry was just so believable. There were several elements that could have been irritating such as Chance believing Logan was a spy due to a misunderstanding when they met whereby he believed Logan to be in the CIA when he in fact went to the Culinary Institute of America and a pretty major stalker issue but both were not dragged out or filled with unnecessary misunderstanding or angst.

There were times when I just wanted to bang both of their heads together and I wished they would just communicate better but it all added to the realism and believability. The secondary characters in this book were fantastic, there were loads of them but they were so well developed and each one added another layer to this story. Sean Lenhart seamlessly switched his voice between the many characters in this book which made it really immersive.

I loved it when Chance and Logan 'geeked out' and their text messages to each other were down right hilarious. I loved their pets and that one of their friends was crocheting head pieces for them. The epilogue was lovely, I love it when it is 5 years down the line and not just a few weeks or months so you get to see how their lives have truly worked out.

Cannot wait to listen to the next book in this series!

Take a Chance on this book

I loved this story. I hadn't read the book before listening to the audiobook, and I'm glad I didn't because I couldn't have done justice to Sean Lenhart's version. There are so many characters in this novel and Sean manages to makes them all individual and he brings to life all the fun moments. There is a lot of heart and lightness in this book and I loved listening to Logan and Chance's story come to life. A definite must read/listen.

An amazing story with brilliant narration

This series is one of my favourites and I've been excited to listen to it on audio.
Humour, love, family and friends. Everything is included in this story. The characters are fully established in their world. We are given enough history with all of them to make us feel comfortable fully immersed in their world.
A new narrator is always a chance but what a great listen Sean made this!
He gives each character their own voice filled with emotion, inflection and brings them completely to life. Definitely enhances the experience of the story and cannot wait to start on book two!

After listening to this I still want Moore

Would you consider the audio edition of A Chance for Moore to be better than the print version?

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Sean Lenhart and found myself more involved than with the print version. He made Chance more appealing to me.

What does Sean Lenhart bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I thought Sean did a great job of bringing the characters to life in a way that print version didn't quite match for me.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I mainly listen to audiobooks during my commute but I couldn't wait for the next chapter!

Any additional comments?

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author for an honest review and all opinions expressed are my own. I had already read the Kindle version of this book but found I enjoyed the audiobook more and I can't wait to listen to the next one in the series.

Had me giggling!

This book definitely had me laughing out loud, some of the antics Logan and chase get up to cracked me up! Lots of daft misunderstandings that we, the listener, get to fully understand due to the dual POV. An enjoyable book with very likeable MC's and a whole host of supporting characters that deserve their own story. Nothing too angsty so great for a long car journey - I loved Logan and was rooting for him throughout the story.

I liked Sean Lenhart's narration, even if the voices of the female characters grated a bit! His voices for the characters were very different so no mix ups.

Looking forward to the next book in the series.

A good book. Very funny in parts. It actually had me laughing out loud. Definitely worth listening to. I'd not come across Sean Lenhart as a narrator before, but he was very good. I'd definitely listen to him again. It was a lovely, near angst free, feelgood story.
