This was a sweet romance and while it slows somewhat in the middle with a frustrating separation, it (thankfully) picks up again quickly. Overall I loved K.C. Kelly's narration and really thought he did well and had a good handle on the many different character voices and was able to convey the emotions of many scenes without going over the top. Told in Merle and Tom's dual POV, this is sweet without being excessive. Just a nice, low angst, sexy, romance with a lovely HEA.
My only complaint about the narration was the (to me) mispronunciation of the car brand Audi. I've always been taught it's pronounced &amp;quot;ow-dee&amp;quot; and Kelly kept pronouncing it &amp;quot;awe-dee&amp;quot;. Perhaps that's a regional pronunciation? Regardless, fans of the series should enjoy getting to spend time with the casts from some of the other books in the series who make appearances and even play more supportive roles to help Merle and Tom along in their romance.
Though this is the fifth book in the series, it can absolutely be read/listened to as a standalone.

This sweet story. I loved this book. Tara Lain sets her sights on your heart and hits it time after time. This is a tale of two unlikely men who meet and fall in love. One is beautiful and famous, the other is handsome and simple, at first glance. Looks can be deceiving, though. Tom is the truly beautiful man on the inside as well as the outside. His simple approach to life and love hide the insightful, caring man at Tom’s core. Though the world looks at Merle and Tom and wonders what Merle sees in Tom, Merle wonders what Tom sees in him. There are other characters and dramas going on around Merle and Tom that keep pushing them back towards each other. Tara Lain writes a beautiful story of love and loss, sadness and happiness with heart and soul. I listened to the audiobook with narration by K. C. Kelly and it was perfect for this story. I am off now to listen to more books by Tara Lain.
