Publisher's Summary

Sean Bielecki has built a new life, leaving an infamous identity and painful past behind. Now Sommelier Wines is Sean’s dream. And after taking in Bobby, a homeless teenager who was attacked in the alley behind his store, parental instincts wake in him that he didn’t know he had, giving him new courage and direction.
Officer Sam Davis has been watching Sean for a while—not because of his past—but because Sam wants to be a part of his life now. Sam finally asks Sean out, and they seem to click, but Sean is haunted by his memories.
It all comes to a head when the man who attacked Bobby returns, awakening Sean’s buried fears, which are compounded by a hateful ex and a new lover who puts his life on the line for others. Can Sean come to terms with his past and present to move into the future? Or will his dream of love end before it starts?

Andrew Grey has done it again!

I have read two other Andrew Grey novels and I thoroughly enjoyed them. This is no exception. He masterfully mixes a touching story with very real-to-life experiences (both in and out of the bedroom). Just as his other novels have done, he doesn't create an impossible situation or tear anyone down. The story is not overly complicated and is very easy to follow. Also, the main characters are fully fleshed out and are the kind of people I would very much like to meet. His books make me want to be a better person! My only complaint is that I fell in love with R. Kirstein's deep timbre reading of the other books. That does not mean that Jeremy Klavens' narration was lacking in any way. I can't wait to listen to the next one in the series!

Three Cheers for Something Better

This book made me smile. The reader is wonderful and the story had real depth to it. It wasn't just about sex.

I've noticed that a lot of the gay/lesbian genre available on audible presents stories more focused on sex or scandal. I was thrilled because this is a sweet story about the characters and about love.

Grey presents wholesome relatable characters that you will grow to love.

Bottle Up isn't perfect, but it's fun to listen to and closer to what I'd imagine a male/male relationship is really like. It feels real to me. I suggested the book to a dear friend of mine who is a gay male and he enjoyed the story as well and agreed it felt real unlike most in the genre.

Grey writes some of the best gay romance on audible. I highly recommend him.
