Publisher's Summary

Tobias Jackson grew up in Coburn, a town where the gay population equaled exactly one: him. Add that to the fact that his dream guy was his best friend's jerky older brother, Levi Baxter, and it made hooking up virtually impossible.
Now home from college for winter break, Toby is a different person. He left Coburn for San Francisco, where he wasn't the lone gay guy and the only black kid in town. And yeah, he took advantage of what the city had to offer.
Apparently Toby isn't the only one who's changed. Levi's not acting like the self-centered guy with all the answers that Toby remembers from growing up. Oh, and Levi's realized that he's bisexual, which makes things a lot more interesting.
Heading back to college, Toby doesn't expect to meet up with Levi again, despite him being in med school not far away. A surprise visit from Levi blows that assumption out of the water. As they spend more time together, Toby sees Levi as more than just the fantasy; he's complicated, unsure, and real. But if Toby can't get out of the past and find the words he keeps locked inside himself, he'll lose his chance at Levi for good.

Liked the story very much and LOVED narrator

The story is very good. Not surprising but still moving. It kind of reminds me of Bear otter and the kid (in the general story-Line not the writting) and since that story is one of my all time favorits in gay romance, i liked this one too. There is no humor in this one though, but you get to know the characters Well and feel for Them when they are in pain and cheers for Them when they are happy. I really love the narrators voice - so pleasent to listen to and he is good at making the stories Seem Real to the listener. He makes the story better. So worth a listen if you dont Want many surprising twists in the story but just Want to listen to a sweet story told by a great voice.

great great narration to a so-so story

This story seemed like it was two chapters too long. I enjoyed all the characters in how they developed over time in each one of their underlying stories I just feel like we got more information and then probably needed. I would recommend to a friend

Not my fave Sean Crisden read....

This just didn't work for me. I adore Sean's narration of the BOATK series, and cannot wait for the final book The Long and Winding Road which should be out any day now, but this one....the story has quite a few sex scenes [of course it does, it's a Riley Hart production], but I believe Sean is straight and married, so maybe not the best choice for a gay book with lots of sex I would've thought, but hey, that's just me. I know he's a brilliant narrator, and perhaps this one didn't work for him either.....

Think I'll try the print version

I've got other audiobooks by this author and others narrated by this narrator and I have enjoyed both, but unfortunately the combo just didn't work for me here. I like Sean Crisden, and he kept the pace going, but I think I'll try the print version of this one instead.
