AUDIOBOOK REVIEW: “Frog” by Mary Calmes


Weber Yates’s dreams of stardom are about to be reduced to a ranch hand’s job in Texas, and his one relationship is with a guy so far out of his league he might as well be on the moon. Or at least in San Francisco, where Weber stops to see him one last time before settling down to the humble, lonely life he figures a frog like him has coming. Cyrus Benning is a successful neurosurgeon, so details are never lost on him. He spotted the prince in a broken-down bull rider’s clothing from day one. But watching Weber walk out on him keeps getting harder, and he’s not sure how much more his heart can take. Now Cyrus has one last chance to prove to Weber that it’s not Weber’s job that makes him Cyrus’s perfect man, it’s Weber himself. With the help of his sister’s newly broken family, he’s ready to show Weber that the home the man’s been searching for has always been right there, with him. Cyrus might have laid down an ultimatum once, but now it’s turned into a vow-he’s never going to let Weber out of his life again.

I’ve read the ebook version of Frog twice. The first time I loved it (4 stars), the second time I really liked it (3.5 stars), but couldn’t get past my initial niggles. But, what Frog does well as a book is…well…it serves as a comfort read. It’s one of those stories you can go back to time and again and just enjoy.

Weber Yates is a can-do-no-wrong cowboy. He’s aw-shucks to the nth degree and it’s impossible not to love him.

Cyrus Benning is an up-tight surgeon who, when around Weber, becomes a smitten kitten and it’s kinda impossible not to love him.

Their story is sweet and fun and there are kids and family and 100 extra characters ala all Mary Calmes books. There is an annoying sister who I could do without and a completely inappropriate therapist that I want to strangle. But, all in all, it’s an entertaining read. (My full review(s) HERE)

The audiobook version is one of those that you really add something to the story. Hearing the cowboy drawl in the narrator’s voice, making everything Weber says sound like honey…it was soothing. I found myself enjoying Weber even more than I had in my own head. And when he shifted his voice to become the all-business Cyrus, I believed it was a separate narrator at times.

Now, there were moments when the narrator might’ve forgotten that he was using different voices and suddenly Cyrus had a drawl that should not have existed for the San Francisco doctor. But, *shrugs*, it didn’t happen enough times to be annoying…just enough to be noticeable.

All in all, a fun book to listen to and short enough that you can get through it quickly.

    I love Frog! I know it’s not for everyone, but it’s my kind of comfort read when things get tough and I want something sweet to balance it all out.
