Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would. It was a fast listen that was both well written and well narrated.
What did you like best about this story?
Have you listened to any of Tim Todd’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have not, but I will, I loved what he did with this book.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The bachelor party. I think the two characters started to see each other in a different light at that point, sort of a catalyst.
Any additional comments?
Caleb is working his way through college by any means necessary. He is a good guy, smart, with attainable goals. He never factored in considering someone else’s feelings on how he made his money. When he meets Patton at the bar where he is a part time bar tender, full time off the books rent boy, there is a definite mutual attraction. And when Caleb accepts an offer for a massage at the salon Patton works at, he starts to consider the possibility of something more for the first time in a long time. Then Patton makes an off the cuff remark and sinks the ship before it ever leaves the docks.
This has to be my favorite story and coupling in this series thus far. The story unfolds at the perfect pace, each piece of the puzzle being turned at the right time. The struggle Caleb faces was not only real, believable, it was painful. I loved the fact that he realized selling his body wasn’t the best line of work, but refused to be put down or looked down on because he pursued the only option he was given. Patton pissed me off early on, but then Grace did a fantastic job of humbling him and showing how he struggled with his attraction to Caleb, equal only to his disdain of Caleb’s choice of profession.
Narrated by Tim Todd, and though it was my first listen with this narrator, it won’t be my last. He really captured the true voice for the characters. I could feel Caleb’s frustration and Patton’s indecision throughout the story. I thought it was poetic justice that Patton’s lying, cheating ex was read as a sniveling jackass, much like his character!
Emotional and engaging with a small dose of angst. Definitely a must read if you are a fan of Aria Grace and/or this series. Perhaps it will become your favorite as well. I can’t wait to see what she brings to the table for the next couple in this series.

I feel there was not enough sex in this series as I am learning to these series the writer waits to the end for the characters to engage with each other to me it should be middle and end or beginning and end it is to drawer out
Caleb is doing what he needs to survive and get through college. He meets Patton and whilst there is an interest on both parts the misunderstandings and assumptions get in the way. Both have their hang ups. Patton puts his foot in it every time with Caleb being too innocent of the tough world Caleb has to live in and spouts opinions that drive Caleb away.
Aria Grace writs the push and pull of a tentative romance really well.
I've not listened to Tim Todd before and he does an excellent job of portraying a bewildered Patton and a hesitant Caleb.
The audiobook really brings the story to life for me
