Publisher's Summary

By 24, Carter Stevenson has stuttered and ticced his way to debilitating shyness. Although his friends accuse him of letting his Tourette's dictate his life, Carter moves from Los Angeles to a quiet California town. He'll keep his head down and avoid people. He doesn't anticipate his new neighbor, Ethan Hart, crashing into his solitude and forcing him to get out and live.
From the beginning, Ethan makes his love for Carter clear. But he fears Carter won't see past Ethan's damaged brain, even though it makes Ethan more attuned to his emotions than most people. For Carter, there's a bigger issue: He's been burned by so-called "perfect" matches, and he won't risk his heart again.
One way or another, Ethan's determined to show Carter they belong together. Then Ethan receives tragic news. Suddenly he must turn to Carter for strength and support. Will Carter come through when Ethan needs him most?

I don't think I could rename it. The title is perfect.

Any additional comments?

I don't normally read tearjerkers but I couldn't ignore this book. I don't know why I deigned to listen to it at work. There were many a scene where I reached for my tissue box. I haven't been moved by a story in a very long time. Initially, I didn't know if the narrator was the right choice. I am happy to say that he is. Mr. Kelly did a wonderful job. He evoked so much emotion from me and I consider that a job well done. Bravo Ms Loveless. I wish there was a sequel.

Inspiring story

This is a lovely and super sweet story about the love between a man with brain damage and a debilitating shy man with Turrets Syndrome. Both young men have challenges and demons to face. They get together fairly early in the book so most of the book is about them learning to love and trust each other. There is no real conflict and it is a slow read and really sweet. Lots of "you're amazing" and "it doesn't matter what others say about you, I love you." It is well written but pretty predictable and a little boring in spots; no real surprises. Just a feel good listen about two inspiring young men. The narrator does a good job. I especially liked his voice of the two MCs. Worth a credit.
