I love Mary Calmes and Greg Tremblay!

Any additional comments?

Talk about timing...I literally just re-read this story three days before it suddenly appeared in my Audible feed. Which meant I wasn't exactly chomping at the bit to download it...until I saw who is narrating: Greg Tremblay. Ding, ding, ding! Instant download!

This short novella is entertainingly narrated by Greg Tremblay (naturally) who subtly brings out the nuances of this hurt/comfort story. This is one of Calmes' darker premise stories and I eat it up with a spoon every time. Leo is a lovable grump, and Charlie is obviously (to everyone but Leo) head over heels for Leo.

"I’ve been here, living in your world, for the past three years. I’ve seen you mad and happy and hurt and… I’ve seen it all, but never once, in all that time, have I seen what you look like when you’re in love. I wanna see that."

My only complaint, which is always the same with Calmes' novellas - I WANT MORE! I really like Leo and Charlie and want more of their story.

All in all the story is really enjoyable and Tremblay's narration is wonderful.

Short and Sweet

Another great Calmes/Tremblay collaboration. This is a really sweet, hurt/comfort story about Charlie and Leo. Charlie had a traumatizing experience while working as a porn star (yeah that's right) which has come out. Leo is his boss and the object of his secret crush. Leo is the classic Calmes clueless alpha male that doesn't think he can have someone like Leo. Leo is the insecure twink that doesn't think someone like Leo would be interested in damaged goods. Throw in a stupid ex just for good measure and you have a sweet little romance. Of course Greg Tremblay continues to make it all believable. Only complaint, it was too short.

Nice friends to lovers story.....

Don't normally listen to audio books that are under 2 hours, but it's MC and Greg Tremblay so I took a chance. A nice friends to lovers story, and I have to say Leo was sooo dense sometimes with Charlie but everything turned out OK in the end. As for the ex Ethan and his soon-to-be hubby Aidan, well they were a slimy pair of gits, and being thrown out on their ears is all they deserved....I don't see that marriage lasting very long at all!! 4 stars.
