Publisher's Summary

Escaping an abusive relationship left Luke Preston anxious and spouting panic-induced poetry. Desperate for a fresh start, Luke accepts a job remodeling a tired old beach house for a professional soccer player and his model girlfriend. While his passion is literature, not sports, focusing on the renovations eases his anxiety. Until the job he signed up for turns out to be more complicated than advertised.
Sidelined with a serious injury, soccer star Michael Martinez decides his beach house is the perfect place to recuperate. Remodeling might be the diversion he needs to keep his mind off his busted knee. Falling for the pretty designer with some quirky habits wasn't on the drawing board. Unfortunately, Luke didn't build a big enough closet for Michael to hide in. Having a star-powered sports career used to be all Michael lived for, but he'll have to reevaluate his plans and find the right words if he wants to build more than a beach house with Luke.

Sweet story

This was a nice, sweet story of an out and proud interior designer meeting an in the closet soccer player. A little angst and a little family drama, but mostly sweet. If you like this author's other works, you will like this one. It only lost a star because I really never warmed up to Michael and really didn't like his uncle. Michael just didn't seem very warm or likeable to me. The story is told from Luke's POV, so maybe if I had heard Michael's POV, I would have felt differently. I loved Luke, and his best friend Brandon. They were funny, witty and wonderfully supportive of each other. I just didn't think Michael deserved Luke, even though the author had him FINALLY do the right thing in the end, it felt awkward. The narrator does a wonderful job bringing the characters to life.

Absolutely dire - avoid, avoid.

I'm really surprised this book ever got published. The plot is tedious and poorly constructed - nothing much happens for the first half of the book. The sex scenes are tepid and slightly cringeworthy and the main love interest is very unappealing. The narrator does a decent job but with such a poorly written novel to begin with..... I wish I had not invested so many hours of my life to listening to this.

Not entirely satisfying

Although the story was fine following the usual template of gay romances I found the character of Luke hard to accept. I found him to be a petulant and a bit of a diva which made it near impossible to reconcile that the character of Michael would fall for him. The narrator was good.
