Publisher's Summary

Growing up in foster care has left Kerry Grey with little self-esteem or hope for his future. A college dropout, Kerry scrapes by on a part-time job at a garden nursery. His friendship with his boss and working with the plants are the only high points in Kerry's life. He's been dating the man who bullied him at school, but when his boyfriend abandons him at a party, Kerry wanders down the beach to drown his sorrows in a bottle of scotch.
Malcolm Holmes and Charlie Stone have been together for 15 years. Despite Charlie's willingness to accept Malcolm's unspoken domination in bed, something is missing from their relationship. Early one morning, they rescue a passed-out Kerry from being washed away by the tide, and Charlie immediately senses a kindred spirit in the lost younger man. When Kerry's roommate kicks him out, Malcolm and Charlie invite him into their home. As Charlie and Kerry bond over Charlie's garden, Malcolm sees Kerry may be just who they have been looking for to complete their lives. All they have to do is show Kerry, and each other, that Kerry's submissive tendencies will fit their dynamic.
But someone is sabotaging Kerry at every turn. As he struggles to discover the culprit, he fears for the safety of his new friends. If Malcolm and Charlie cannot help, their lifelong search for their perfect third may not end with the happily ever after they imagined.

What Makes A Family...

Apprehension settled as I began to read/listen to this book. See, I am not much into the idea of 'third's so I was a little leery with this tale. But, as with most times I allow preconceived notions to rule, I was wrong. I enjoyed this story, a lot! OMG, Kerry's life was almost too much. His middle name was 'bad-luck'. Then the cast of characters enters and you get a sense that some of Kerry's bad-luck may be self-induced. Meeting with Charlie and Malcolm, Kerry begins to seek and discover what it is that he has been looking for, what he is deserving of...love and happiness. A great story that was only enhanced by the vocal talents of Greg Tremblay. Definitely recommend...

So much angst and some sweetness

What did you love best about The Foster Family?

The characters and relationships were all portrayed in a very realistic way, in fact, so much so that I would say this reads much more like literary fiction with sexy bits than the romance I was expecting. That might not be everyone's cup of tea, but to me, it was a very good thing.


What about Greg Tremblay’s performance did you like?

Captures the emotional content of the story without being at all over done. The voices of all the main characters felt very real and distinct. One of the best audio performances I've encountered to date.
