Publisher's Summary

Carrick Francis has spent most of his life jumping into trouble with both feet. The only thing saving him from prison or worse is his absolute devotion to Deacon Winters. Deacon was Crick's sanity and salvation during a miserable, abusive childhood, and Crick would do anything to stay with him forever. So when Deacon's father dies, Crick puts his college plans on hold to help Deacon as Deacon has helped him.Deacon's greatest wish is to see Crick escape his memories and the town they grew up in so Crick can enjoy a shining future. But after two years of growing feelings and temptation, the painfully shy Deacon finally succumbs to Crick's determined advances and admits he sees himself as part of Crick's life.
It nearly destroys Deacon when he discovers Crick has been waiting for him to push him away, just like Crick's family did in the past. When Crick's knack for volatile decisions lands him far away from home, Deacon is left, shell-shocked and alone, struggling to reforge his heart in a world where love with Crick is a promise, but by no means a certainty.

Excellent Story!

The tale of Crick and Deacon is filled with a plethora of emotions ranging from elation to despair. The writing style of Amy Lane is fantastic and Sean Crisden's narration added to the story. I have listened to this book several times and I still find myself laughing out loud and shedding a tear. A great story! One I highly recommend.

Magnificent

If you enjoy gay romance novels then this book is one you just can not pass by.

Even though the setting of the audiobook made me think twice about purchasing the book, it was just the exact place and people that just made the story.

The characters may have their flaws, but the love, hope and sense of family throughout the entire book is pure joy and had me crying on many occasions. I cried at the very end, not just because of the ending, but because I felt so much a part of the characters lives and I had witnessed their growth and pain, it felt like that I myself as losing friends and family. I just wanted it to continue.

I immediately went out and purchased the paper back and the next installment of the series and Amy Lane jumped to my favourite author of all time.

This is one audiobook that I do not regret purchasing, not even for a second.
