Publisher's Summary

Being in love with your dad’s best friend is a recipe for loneliness.

Trust me, I know.

But I can’t help it. How can I not fall for someone as sweet and caring and attractive as John? Especially after he comes and fixes a leaking pipe in my basement. No questions asked. Just shows up, flashes his knee-weakening smile, and leaves.

Afterward, I notice John watching me with heat in his eyes sometimes. John, who’s only ever dated women, can’t seem to figure out he isn’t supposed to stare at certain parts of my very male body.

I know my dad won’t like it if he finds out, but we’re both adults. If there’s a chance I can have something real with John, I have to go for it.

Right?

Laying Pipe is a low-angst, contemporary romance full of heat, laughs, and a guaranteed HEA.

Falling in love with Dad’s best friend!

This is an age-gap, dad’s best friend, bisexual awakening, kind of romance.

The characters are relatable, Lucas is adorable and John is a solid and really good guy. They’ve been in each other’s lives for years and while Lucas has been pining for John for years, John was very late to the party. It’s worth it though, I really enjoyed listening to these two fall in love, specially John.

It’s a feel-good romance, just two men falling in love, almost no angst.

Kirt Graves’ narration took the story to the next level.

Five piping stars! 😉

👍👍

I loved this book. I will say that my only issue is that I felt the way John just went from straight to bisexual seemed a little too seamless. I think it would be more realization to have had some more hesitation or discussion about the transition would have been interesting and natural. Instead, he jumped right in and basically led the relationship with no hesitation. I couldn’t keep from thinking about that throughout the book.

A sweet age gap romance!

This was a lighthearted, low angst contemporary age gap romance.

Lucas and John were amazing!
This was such a sweet wholesome listen overall.

The storyline was engaging, the characters were likeable and enjoyable and the writing style was compelling.

Kirt Graves knocked it right out of the park with his stellar audio delivery and narration.
I really love how easy it is listening to him perform.

Loved it!

I don’t know how Kiki does it but she has a talent for creating characters you just fall in love with.

From Rick to Bennet, John to Tank, she crafts these big, tough, sometimes possessive but in a hot as hell way, and oh so kinky guys with marshmallow hearts who love so deeply, you just want them to jump through your kindle and take care of you.

No? Just me? Okay…

I really love Kirk Graves’s voice and narration. He always does a fantastic job. I’m so used to his voices that it’s hard for me to find another narrator I like as much!

John and Lucas totally stole my heart. I loved how sweet Lucas was, and he melted my heart with his love for animals. And you know how I feel about John…unf. Their story was sweet, kinky, tender, and thoroughly enjoyable.

Forbidden and sweet

Narration: Kirt Graves is amazing at distinguishing the voices for the MCs. Even though it’s written in third person, I never got confused cause Kirt is that good!

Story: It’s a sweet forbidden/taboo age-gap story, not very angsty with lovable characters. I love stories that has “regular” AND relatable people in it.

Loved this book!

This was a new to me author but sounded right up my alley so I tried it. Am so glad I did! Loved Lucas and John from the start. The narrator was amazing and plot was built up perfectly without being rushed. Will definitely be reading more by this author!

HOT!

What does a person do when they find themselves crushing on their best friends son? That is a question John has to ask himself. He is confused because he's never thought about dating a man before. He used to be married. But he started noticing his best friends son and the looks they exchange. There is no denying the attraction between the two, but John has to ask himself if the son is worth the risk of losing his friend of over 20 years. Is this something that can worked out of his system with a couple nights of sex, or is there more?

Lazy,sloppy writing. I felt sorry for the narrator

New to me author that I thought I'd take a chance on because of the stellar narrator.
What a mistake that was.
I don't know if this book was edited or if the editor was just rubbish. There were so many poorly constructed sentences and bad word choices that "Laying Pipe" reads like it was written by a 13-year-old. Any decent author knows that the use of 'Literally' all the time is a BAD SIGN. That was the first inkling...

Then there were many times when the physical placement of characters and the description of their interaction made no sense. For instance, John and Lucas had a meal, apparently sitting opposite one another at a breakfast bar. But John 'turns all the way around and faces Lucas'... which is pure nonsense if they were sitting across from one another.

Again, later in the story, John keeps a plate of dinner for Lucas and Lucas goes to John's cabin to collect it. Lucas is holding the dinner plate and the writer never says that Lucas put the plate down. Yet, he gets into a smooch with John and both of his hands are on him, so where is the plate? On his head? Who knows. So, you can see that this book has problems and the author's attention to detail is lacking.

What ended my patience with this story was that the first sex scene included unprotected sex. Spending into a partner's open hole on the first time was not sexy or romantic. The reality is that it could give Lucas a nasty, life-threatening STD. Yes, this is fiction so we try to suspend disbelief, but this is also a romance - What is romantic about an older man who cares so little for his new, younger partner that he puts him at risk of an STD for their first time together. After that scene, there were 3 hrs of this book to go and I decided anything was better than continuing.
I feel sorry for Kirt Graves having to narrate this trash.

Absolutely Beautiful ☺️


I won the audiobook in a Facebook competition and promised I would review it.

As I never give away spoilers to any book I review I know I shall not spoil anything for anyone.

I loved this book. A refreshing change, light, bright and breezy with touches of humour throughout.

Very well written and excellently narrated by Kirt Graves as expected.

Highly recommend this audiobook/book and definitely worth 5⭐️’s 😁

Great age gap!

Story: Let me preface my review with saying I am a huge fan of age gap stories. Add in a best friend's son element and I am all in, hook, line and sinker. This book is quite a classic take on the tropes, without many unexpected complications. This however does not mean the story is not engaging! I loved the dynamics between the characters and the evolution of their relationship. It didn't hurt any that there was so much heat there! A complete package for a feel good read with very limited angst!

Narration: I was eyeing this book for quite a while and I am so happy I waited for the audio! Kirt Graves did an awesome job with the characters and all the emotions! Never had any problem with following the story, so the performance was top notch in my book!

Aww

This book was a little sweet. Just what the doctor ordered for this cold winter's day.

First of all, I was given this book as a promo. But I am freely leaving my review.

I'm not really a fan of the best friend's son or older/younger dynamic in books. I prefer for age to not be a big deal as long as you are both adults. However, Kiki managed it well in this story. It was very enjoyable as I sat in my lazy boy rocking chair sipping on cocoa and caramel mocha's.

Kurt Graves has that distinctive, steady and calm narration style that really soothes you as he draws you into each character he voices.

All in all, a good listen.
