Heroes: Book One
Schoolteacher Charlie Matthews returns to his hometown, looking to regain a sense of community, reconnect with friends, and settle down. It looks like his dreams have come true when paramedic Josh Campbell attends an accident at the school. It's love at first sight, and a romance begins.
But Josh's reluctance to come out to the brother who raised him puts pressure on their fledgling relationship. While Charlie understands Josh's concerns, he can't help growing impatient. After all, Charlie came out years ago.
It's not until Charlie confronts his own parents and realizes he hasn't come to terms with their rejection that he fully understands what Josh has to lose. But Josh is Charlie's hero, and Josh will do anything to prove to Charlie that to be part of a family, he doesn't need his parents.

Sweet, fluffy, low angst romance
This a sweet, fluffy, low angst romance with a really entertaining narration. Joel Leslie provides distinct character voices and an enjoyable listening experience.
Charlie Matthews and Josh Campbell are just two of the cast of likable characters in the story. Truthfully everyone, with the exception of Charlie's homophobic jerk-off parents, is likable in this story.
I almost feel like I'm damning this with faint praise, but I'm not, really. There is nothing wrong with it, but at the same time there is nothing that exciting about it either. It's okay. Sweet, enjoyable, and a compelling listen. It also sets up Josh's brother, Andrew's, story, which looks like it will be delightful.
If you are looking for an entertaining audio listen of a fluffy romance that doesn't have unnecessary angst or miscommunication, this is a good choice.
