M4M by Rick R. Reed; Narrated by Wesley Landry

M4M is another dive into the mind of Rick R. Reed

From the blurb:

Three great stories. One great love.

VGL Male Seeks Same

Poor Ethan Schwartz. It seems like he will never find that special someone. At age forty-two, he’s still alone, his bed still empty, and his 42-inch HDTV overworked. He’s tried the bars and other places where gay men are supposed to find one another, but for Ethan, it never works out. He wonders if it ever will. Should he get a cat?

But all of that is about to change…


Poor Ethan Schwartz. He’s just had the most shocking news a gay man can get—he’s been diagnosed HIV positive. Up until today, he thought his life was on a perfect course. He had a job he loved and something else he thought he’d never have: Brian, a new man, one whom Ethan thought of as “the one.” The one who would complete him, who would take his life from a lonely existence to a place filled with laughter, hot sex, and romance.

But along with the fateful diagnosis comes another shock—is Brian who he thinks he is?

Status Updates

Ethan finds himself alone once more and wonders if life is worth living, even one with a cat. Via a Facebook friend request, an old nemesis appears, wanting to be friends. Ethan is suspicious but intrigued because it seems this old acquaintance has turned his life around…and the changes just might hold the key to Ethan getting a new lease on life…and love.

Nedra's review:

I’m beginning to think that I am glutton for punishment by jumping into any Rick R. Reed head first, knowing he’s going to tear me apart every time. The depths of which he dives into, never sugar coating his words, opening the listener’s eyes and heart to the realities of life.

When I initially began this audio, I was a little skeptical about the narrator chosen. But, between the storyline and the events that were happening, not only did my skepticism drizzle away but didn’t really make any difference. This was one of those books that are just great in their own right.

M4M is currently available as an audiobook, e-book and paperback
