Publisher's Summary

Aaron Weiss knows how to escape. Years ago, he ran from a romantic disappointment and impulsively joined the Army. Now, he's forced to take a medical discharge, and readjusting to life at home proves a challenge.
Jesse Ross knows how to hide. He realizes he's an oddball, and that he's an outsider within his own family. He also knows his secret love since childhood, Aaron, only wants his good-looking, favored older brother. Yet Jesse could never completely abandon his intense feelings for Aaron. Over the years, Jesse was a faithful pen pal to him. Still, he's shocked to his core to find Aaron on his doorstep.
As long-buried secrets and past hurts take center stage, the two are overwhelmingly drawn to each other. But it's their future that may force them to risk everything.

Overrated

The publishers summary is misleading, making the book sound far more exciting than it is. This is not a book about risking anything. Jesse makes steps with his issues, but Aaron doesn't do anything.
Overall, it's like eating marshmallows, sweet but no substance...

- Nimue "Avid audible listener!"

Good series.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I like this one better than the first, though I did enjoyed that one too. It had a nice build up with the past relationship. And no meet-cute (I say this as a good thing) though I guess it would be a remeet cute. Good low level angst.


Which scene was your favorite?

The Jesse's parents party where Aaron finally starts seeing things clearly. I also like that the characters from the other books are carrying on their lives in a "realistic" fashion. Things are changing for them even when they "off-screen" and their actions aren't necessarily effecting the main characters of the current book.


Any additional comments?

I liked both Jesse and Aaron (though at times I wanted to slap Aaron upside the head). They were sweet together. It's a nice romance with some family drama and angst. I did like that no everything was wrapped up in a perfect bow. BUT I do wish there had been a bit more resolution with Aaron's family at least. Aaron's mom put the s on mother. But she was sweet with him but then was SUCH a witch to Jesse, who'd already had enough parent issues. I would have like to see her eventually welcoming and apologizing to Jesse and seeing what jerks her "friends" were. But it's very nice read.
