Publisher's Summary

One moment...that's all it takes for life as you once knew it to change irrevocably. For Michael Kingston, that moment was when he first laid eyes on Gabriel. In his life, Michael had only known darkness, leaving behind a broken shell of a man. Unspeakable memories of his childhood constantly plagued him, causing him to disconnect emotionally from the world. No one had ever shown him love; therefore, he believed that he was unworthy of it. And then everything changed.
Gabriel Greyson had always been different. Growing up in a small, Bible-thumping town, his preferences for men, makeup, and fashion made him an outcast. But, with the support and love of his family, he overcame obstacles that were thrown his way and rose above the intolerance. He danced to the beat of his own glammed-out drum and refused to believe that he was anything other than ultra-fabulous. Working as a beautician, he had a job he adored and felt that everything was perfect in his life. Everything except for true love.
When these two unlikely men meet, sparks fly. For the first time in Michael's life, he feels like he can overcome the darkness inside him. Gabriel gives him hope and slowly brings him out of the shadows, showing him that even the darkest of souls can be redeemed. But there are secrets that Michael keeps locked away. Michael's fear is that Gabriel will turn away from him when he discovers the truth. After all, who could ever love a beast?

Great performance and really good story

I really enjoyed this listen. The contrast between Michael and Gabriel really worked for me. I loved the way Michael loved Gabriel. And Gabriel was just what Michael needed to start to address his brutal childhood trauma. Gabriel's character was over the top flamboyant, light drag, with a great supportive family. And Michael was super dark, alpha, attorney, introvert with PSTD. The author made them make total sense as a couple. The narrator's performance was stellar and he really brought the story and characters to life. I look forward to the next book.

This book had lots of potential, but because of the mediocre and sometimes juvenile dialogue it completely turned me off. first off the characters say certain things way way too much like " oh I'm such a beast" or "look at my fabulous self" the conflict in the book was a good idea but it was very superficial for me I think we spent too much time with the MC self loathing and the opportunity to make a strong solid healing book was missed, and in some parts of the dialogue I questioned if a high schooler wrote it. this book left me wanting, very shallow.
The narrator did a below average job, some parts sounded like he recorded in a studio and others sound like it was in a bathroom, one point I heard something drop in the background and it scared the crap out of me because I was listening at night and I thought someone was in my house.
I would say save your money on this book however, I have high hopes for the brother in the next book, maybe it will deal with a lighter subject that the author can handle.
