Aspiring actor Beckett Huntington arrives in New York City on a wing and a prayer, struggling to land his first gig. He knows scoring Payton Gowan as an agent would be a great way to get his foot in the door, but with their history, getting the chance is going to be a tough sell.
Against Payton's better judgment, he agrees to give Beckett a chance, only to discover - to his amazement - that Beckett actually does have talent.
Payton signs Beckett but can't trust him - until Payton's best friend, Val, is attacked. When Beckett is there for him, Payton begins to see another side to his former bully. Amidst attempts by a jealous agent to sabotage Beckett's career and tear apart their blossoming love, Payton and Beckett must learn to let go of the past if they have any chance at playing out a future together.

I really enjoyed listening to this one.
I know Andrew Grey's books usually have a random old flame or some new guy sweeping in and out of the main characters' lives just to build drama, but there's none of that here. Beckett does bring a friend onto the scene out of nowhere but there was no time between Pay seeing him and meeting him for there to be any kind of angst over it. Since I'm tired of that kind of misunderstanding pushing the characters into an epiphany I appreciated that.
I've listened to a couple other books narrated by Tristan James and I think he does a great job and has a voice I could listen to for hours (funny that). The one gripe I have with his narration (and many others, like Wil Wheaton reading 'Ready Player One') is that the main characters sound the same. There were times Beckett did sound different, a bit deeper, than Payton but then drifted back to sounding the same, or close enough to not tell the difference. Val did have a different lilt to his voice, which was a plus.
As for the book's summary...you're going to have to read that elsewhere. All I'll say is that I really liked the main character, his best friend, and the guy he hated in high school. I wouldn't mind listening to this one again down the road.

Another winner by Andrew Grey!
When I initially started this novel, I wasn't sure it would be my kind of liking however, I continued and boy am I glad I did! The story was one that, as usual with Andrew Grey, kept my attention to the extent that it was difficult to take a break from. I am now having to use Audible more and more, which is a tremendous help. I have a degenerative spinal injury resulting from a very bad skiing accident. I was advised that things would over time become increasingly bad, and now I am having great difficulty holding my Kindle for even a short period of time. Being able to 'shuffle of to Buffalo' taking the novel with me, using my headset and placing the Kindle behind me is great, as I don't miss any of the book's I happen to be reading. 'Between Loathing and Love', has been a book which I couldn't stop listening to. The story is so romantic with the two main characters who had crossed paths again after being at school together, which wasn't a bed a bed of roses by any means, and another character who was embedded in the story. Eventually everything worked out in the end and I was hoping that there would be a sequel, but was disappointed as there was no mention of one at the end. Hopefully Andrew will read this and decide to write a continuation of the lives of the characters, PLEASE Andrew!!!!!! Well done on a superb novel and I look forward to listening to my next. As for Peyton, Kendall and Val, I in all sincerity hope that a follow-up on Audible won't be too long in arriving.
