Publisher's Summary

Ben Walsh is well on his way to becoming one of Manhattan's top litigators, with a gorgeous boyfriend and friends on the A-list. His life is perfect until he gets a phone call that brings it all crashing down: a car accident takes his parents, and now he must return to Austin to raise three teenage brothers he barely knows.
During the funeral, Ben meets Travis Atwood, the redneck neighbor with a huge heart. Their relationship initially runs hot and cold, from contentious to flirtatious, but when the weight of responsibility starts wearing on Ben, he turns to Travis, and the pressure shapes their friendship into something that feels a lot like love. Ben thinks he's found a way to have his old life, his new life, and Travis too, but love isn't always easy. Will he learn to recognize that sometimes the worst thing imaginable can lead him to the place he was meant to be?

Nice feel good m/m romance

Really nice feel good m/m romance. I liked it. I really didn't like the country accent David used for Travis character, but other than that...it was your basic m/m romance. Well take that back... it was a bit interesting in how Travis left Ben, when Ben broke up with Travis... it actually worked for the story though... Just enough angst, romance and storyline. I really liked the brothers too...

Nice narration. Charlie David is best with Hispanic or Italian accents, but he did great here as well.

Good credit or sale... Or just buy and save credit it the price is still under 10 dollars.

A simple read

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

If my friend had already listened to most of the other book in the M/M genre, had both money and time to spend, then yes I would recommend it. Not to say it was that bad of a book but for me, the plot that I'd gathered from the blurb wasn't all that compelling to begin with. And then it sort of dragged, going through the motions of the usual book with a "gay for you" (suburbs style) theme that you find in this genre. I found this book similar to the book "Nothing ever happens" by Sue Brown but ironically less climatic.


If you’ve listened to books by Brad Boney before, how does this one compare?

Unfortunately I haven't because it didn't really leave a strong impression on me.
