For years, Clayton Potter's been friends and workout partners with Ronnie. Though Clay is attracted, he's never come on to Ronnie because, let's face it, Ronnie only dates women.
When Clay's father suffers a heart attack, Ronnie, having recently lost his dad, springs into action, driving Clay to the hospital over 100 miles away. To stay close to Clay's father, the men share a hotel room near the hospital, but after an emotional day, one thing leads to another, and straight-as-an-arrow Ronnie makes a proposal that knocks Clay's socks off! Just a little something to take the edge off.
Clay responds in a way he's never considered. After an amazing night together, Clay expects Ronnie to ignore what happened between them and go back to his old life. Ronnie surprises him and seems interested in additional exploration. Though they're friends, Clay suddenly finds it hard to accept the new Ronnie and suspects that Ronnie will return to his old ways. Maybe they both have a thing or two to learn.

Taking the journey with Ronnie as he navigated the troubling waters surrounding his sexuality and accepting that.
Oh heck yes, I love James voice. He has this husky tone to his voice that really fit well for Ronnie.
Clay, of course. His love and devotion to Ronnie is unwavering, his friendship unmovable, even facing the very real possibility of losing him.
e-book review November 2015 4.5/5 stars...
Unrequited love is a bitch, especially when it’s your best friend you’re in love with.
Clay Potter has wanted more than just friendship from Ronnie pretty much since they met. Several things keep the lust at bay. For starters, Ronnie is all but the poster boy for straight men across the land. Few women avoid Ronnie’s charm, and not many more avoid his bed. The man is gorgeous, successful and smart, even if a little conceited. Clay is content to play the role of confidant and best friend though, until an unexpected trip home to visit his sick father changes the game entirely.
I am a huge fan of gay for you storylines, especially when there is valid confusion involved. I had a little trouble a few times with Ronnie’s back and forth, his confusion and unwillingness to admit his feelings bordering on garnering him with the title of douche, but he managed to win me over in the end. Clay truly stole the show in my opinion though. He was strong, steadfast and unwavering to spite the fact that Ronnie was killing him with his uncertainty. Clay stayed true to their friendship regardless and that was so very endearing for me. I mean, it was the promise he made to Ronnie from the start, before all the lines blurred, and he stood true to that statement to the end. In fact, I think that bond was the glue that held them together.
This book was unlike any other story I’ve read from Grey and I think I’ve read just about everything from him. I’ve said it before, that I am in awe of his imagination and ability to continue to bring fresh, believable stories over one hundred books into his career. The story was emotional and raw with a different little twist to the GFY story arch that I can’t disclose. No spoilers, but I guarantee it’s worth the read and I’m certain you’ll enjoy the ride usually confident, yet sometimes perplexed Ronnie as much as Clay did.
Audiobook review May 2016...
Tristan James tells the story of Clay and Ronnie quite brilliantly. I don't think it's a secret that he is one of my favorite narrators, he has this very husky voice that really translates well for a character like Ronnie that is this alpha male, confident and assured man. What I really liked and what I think set this audio book apart from the print version was how James conveyed the confusion Ronnie was experiencing with the way he voiced him. Subtle tone inflections turned Clay from an almost aggravating character to one I could sympathize with.
While the book and the audio version were essentially the same story, they are two different experiences. There were little things I missed from the print version that stood out in the audio version. Definitely a must read and a must listen story.
