Summary

Ben has two passions in life, books and Bookmarked, the bookstore he owns in the town of Chester Falls. But when he spots the guy across the bar, all broody, gorgeous and hard muscle, he can't resist reaching out.

Tristan's life could be worse, but moving into a new town and finding your boyfriend cheating on you with a random guy, all on the same day, is pretty up there on the scale of 'how much worse can it get?

Things start looking up the moment the sexy stranger with the nerdy glasses and deep brown eyes asks him the right question at the right time.

It was a one off.
It meant nothing.
Right?

When fate traps Ben and Tristan into a second meeting, will Ben finally listen to his best friend? And will Tristan put his past aside to catch his sexy bookworm?

Welcome to Chester Falls, where you can expect to meet sweet men, sexy situations, interfering friends and lots, lots of feels.

How to Catch a Bookwork is a 12k, MM romance short story set in the small town of Chester Falls. The events in this story happen before the events of How to Catch a Prince.

Really great!

This was a super cute one! The narration was pretty good, Nick Hudson had an excellent voice for the characters. He brought passion and angst to life with his tones and vocal sounds. The story was sweet and fun. I really liked the side characters and the way the author connected the two without them realizing it until it was too late. Over all it was an excellent piece to enjoy 😊

Short and sweet

A short story introducing the town of Chester Falls and some of the leading players in the series. The relationship moves quickly but having just read the book about their wedding I appreciated the background of how they met.

Another great book

I really enjoyed this book. It was great getting to see Ben and Tristan's story from the start. Although this book is shorter than the others it doesnf take away from how good it is. The narrator did a fantastic job again bringing the characters to life.

Ben & Tristian’s Story

It was good to finally see Ben & Tristian’s start! They pop up in the previous books of the series, and getting to see how they meet and eventually get together is nice. While this book is a good, sweet read, it is much shorter than the previous books I’m the series and I felt that at times there were things being rushed.
The narration by Nick Hudson was okay but the extended pauses between sentences/paragraphs/chapters got to be very annoying.
While it was nice to see Ben & Tristian’s story, this will probably be one that I skip on the audio if I read it in the future.

Perfect introduction to Chester Falls

I really wish this had been longer because I absolutely loved this little snippet of Ben and Tristan.
A chance encounter leads to a sizzling night of passion that leaves both men wanting more.
Neither one can stop thinking about thinking about the other until fate intervenes and they realize they live in the same town.
Absolutely sweet and adorable.
Nick Hudson did a great job narrating.

Lovely prequel to a great series

I admit I love Chester Falls. A picturesque New England town that is very LGBTQ friendly. There’s something charming about that, especially in the world we’re currently enduring. I’ve listened to all the Chester Falls books, and I have to admit this one started a bit differently. Like with a bang. A literal one. In the bathroom of a gay club. A well-used incident, to be sure, but one that works in this case.

Tristan has just discovered his jerk boyfriend is not into fidelity and he’s hurt. He probably saw this coming, but that doesn’t lessen the pain. He drives around until finally winding up at a gay bar far out of the new town he’s just settled in. A quick bang with a cute guy in the bathroom? Just what he needs to feel better.

Except it leaves him feeling empty and wondering about the adorable guy he’s been with. He gave the guy his number, but the guy never called. Still, Tristan is doing his best to settle into his new job and even attends his friend Hannah’s party where she is with her girlfriend Ellie. These two lesbians appear later in the series and I loved watching their relationship blossom and thrive.

Anyway, it isn’t until Tristan meets up with the bookish guy that the pieces fall into place and Ellie, meddling woman that she is, ensures her boss Ben and the man he’s obviously attracted to get some quality alone time. Forced proximity, if only for a short time.

There are other characters who appear later in the series who pop in but the story truly focuses on the two men and whether they can overcome their hesitations to commit to each other.

I’ll give a shout out to Nick Hudson who is doing a fantastic job of narrating the series. He just suits it perfectly. If you haven’t tried these, this audio is a great short and fun introduction to the town and its inhabitants. And hopefully you’ll want to go on and read the rest of the books.

Short, sweet and fun!

A cute short story in the Chester Falls series - the prequel really.
Ben and Tristan are a fun and hot couple. When they meet at a club, it's insta-lust. The rest ost of the story is about them moving beyond the instant attraction.
Nick Hudson dies a great job, as always! He's been really good for the series. Enjoyed the audiobook a lot!

How a great series began

I didn't start the Chester Falls series with this prequel, but have loved every book in the series, so it was great to back up and kind of see how things started. I adore books about nerdy bookworms and bookstore owners so this was right up my alley. The two characters were great for each other, the romance was hot and as always with Ana Ashley she knows how to end a story perfectly. Her last chapters and epilogs always make me sigh, smile and close the book with a sense of warmth and comfort. Nick Hudson is the perfect narrator for this series. He has the right mix of emotional depth and lightness the stories require. It just sounds like he is having a ball performing these.
