Publisher's Summary

Two dudes walk into a bookstore.
Tristan knows he's got issues. His latest ex-girlfriend knows it too. He can't blame her for dumping him - even though she gets her brother to do it for her. Since he can't stop staring at said brother's package, he figures it's about time to put a label on those issues. He likes guys.
He heads to a local bookstore with what he's sure is a foolproof plan to find someone to show him what he's been missing. But who should crash his little adventure? Officer Michael Truax, who gave him a really expensive ticket back in high school for skateboarding without a helmet.
Michael has been trying to catch Tristan for years, to give him a second ticket. Suddenly faced with "Sparky" all grown up and looking to get laid, Michael's protective instinct kicks in - and presents him with an opportunity that's hard to resist. After all, the kid must know what he's getting into, so why not?
But when a man with a plan connects with a man with a hunger, the result is nothing short of explosive.

Sweet, insta-love, with hot sexy times!

Any additional comments?

Okay, so here's the skinny. This was actually one of the first M/M stories I ever read, so it will always have a special place in my heart. I loved the whirlwind romance between nineteen year old Tristan and twenty-seven year old Michael.<br/><br/>That being said, sometimes it's a good idea not to go back and revisit some stories.<br/><br/>The intensity of the insta-love was jarring to me with this read. The same points I loved when I first read this years ago now make me cringe a little.<br/><br/>But I still love the sex scenes, and the terrific family dynamics, and how much Michael and Tristan love each other and work to be with one another. <br/><br/>The narration itself was good, except I really didn't like the voice used for Tristan. Tristan is described as a sort of punk-skater-boi with long hair who has been banging chicks left and right before he comes to terms with his homosexuality and the voice Tobias Silversmith uses is...delicate. Almost feminine. It didn't match up with my idea for how the character would sound and that took me a long while to stop trying to force my expectation of the voice and just enjoy the narration.<br/><br/>I really liked Silversmith's range, tone, and emotion. Once I stopped trying to backseat-narrate I really enjoyed it.<br/><br/>If you like a super-sweet insta-love romance with an age difference between lovers and some really hot sexy times you should check it out.

Awful Narration - Ruins a Good Story

Would you try another book from Z.A. Maxfield and/or Tobias Silversmith?

Yes, for Maxfield. I thought this book was perfection in kindle format. I was so excited to see it on audio - and then terribly disappointed when I heard it. Very very poor choice of narrator for this story. It was like he was reading a phone book. I'm not a big fan of Maxfield but I really liked this one (written version).

What did you like best about this story?

Interaction between Tristan and Michael.

Would you be willing to try another one of Tobias Silversmith’s performances?

No, I actually avoid anything done by him. Sorry. I won't buy a book with him doing the narration - he's right up there with Jeff Gelder - I won't buy any of his audio performances either. Doesn't ANYONE listen to these guys before they choose them?

What character would you cut from Crossing Borders?

I wouldn't, great characters.

Any additional comments?

Again, loved the book and I guess I'll just have to do my own voice in my head when I read it. Too bad.

An old favourite book with a great new narrator

Any additional comments?

I've waited a long time for this story to come out in audio, and I loved ZAM's choice of narrator. Tobias Silversmith is a new (to me) voice and his narration fit very well with the story and the ages of the MCs. I know it's not the last time I'll listen to this story, and I'm also looking forward to listening to other productions with Tobias.
