Total Creative Control, Creative Types, Book 1 By: Joanna Chambers, Sally Malcolm Narrated by: Simon Goldhill

Leseitger loved the narration for Total Creative Control. See their review below.

From the blurb:

When fanfic writer Aaron Page landed a temp job with the creator of hit TV show, Leeches, it was only meant to last a week. Three years later, Aaron’s still there....

It could be because he loves the creative challenge. It could be because he’s a huge Leeches fanboy. It’s definitely not because of Lewis Hunter, his extremely demanding, staggeringly rude...and breathtakingly gorgeous boss.

Is it?

Lewis Hunter grew up the hard way and fought for everything he’s got. His priority is the show, and personal relationships come a distant second. Besides, who needs romance when you have a steady stream of hot men hopping in and out of your bed?

His only meaningful relationship is with Aaron, his chief confidante and indispensable assistant. And no matter how appealing he finds Aaron’s cute boy-next-door charms, Lewis would never risk their professional partnership just to scratch an itch.

But when Lewis finds himself trapped at a hilariously awful corporate retreat, Aaron is his only friend and ally. As the professional lines between them begin to blur, their simmering attraction starts to sizzle

And they’re both about to get burned.

Lesetiger's Review:

Both the authors and the narrator were new to me.

I enjoyed the story very much. 

Lewis and Aron have a relationship with each other without knowing it. Aaron is Lewis PA, but the connection goes much deeper.  I had a bit of a hard time liking Lewis in places, but towards the end he rethought his attitude and also convinced himself that fanfiction can be a good thing.

Aaron is very sweet and I was glad when he drew the right consequences after one incident. The ending came a bit quickly, but the motives were quite understandable.

I was well entertained by the audiobook.

Simon Goldwell did a brilliant job. He brought the story to life, bringing the characters to life with his voice and expression. I will be on the lookout for more audiobooks with him.

Alyssagp's Review:

Total Creative Control by Joanna Chambers and Sally Malcom was an amazing story. The authors did a great job writing and the narrator Simon Goldhill did a great job bringing this story to life! 

I loved the premise of the workplace romance even though Lewis and Aaron's communication was irritating at times! This is the first book I have read/ listened to by these authors and narrator; I was pleasantly surprised and delighted. 

The main characters, Aaron and Lewis, were great with each other. Both had a good level of trust and friendship that they eventually figured out how to evolve into something more special. It was definitely a journey for the two characters to get together like I said in the beginning, there was a good deal of miscommunication and unrequited feelings. 

I related the most to Aaron, even though I felt Lewis' pain. Aaron is quiet smart and unassuming, but he feels deeply even if he pretends not to. Aaron wears his heart on his sleeve in a way, he's honest and forthright and passionate about the things and people he cares about. He may not fully express his feelings when he needs to at times, but I understood his fear and anxiety in regards to it. 

I loved this audiobook!
