Ryan Keller has it all: a great supportive family, friends, and no limit to his self-confidence. Coming out of the closet was not as traumatic as he would have thought. Navigating through life isn't easy for any man, let alone a gay one. Rest assured that Ryan has it handled.
Brandon Ford comes from the wrong side of the tracks. With a dark past, he doesn't have much going for him, no money, no friends, definitely no charisma, and his family makes people on Jerry Springer look like total winners. Life can't be worse - until it becomes unbearable.
When Ryan helps Brandon out of a bad situation, chemistry sparks between them. Only Brandon has one problem: he's hiding in the closet with no way of finding his way out.
After years apart, Ryan runs into Brandon. This spells emotional turmoil for both Ryan and Brandon. Will years of resentment and bad feelings pull them apart or force them to work on their relationship so they can end up Tied Together?

Great narration, not the story for me.
- Morgan A Skye
I enjoy a good second chance romance and this one almost does everything right. I enjoy stories about relationships built from genuine friendships and this one fits. Ryan was out and proud; Brandon was shy and closeted, but they found a way to build a solid friendship.
This was my first ZB Heller book and although I liked most of the book, the internal monologue of MC Ryan was just silly. The cast of supporting characters fit well with the general theme and angst of the book. I love HEAs and HFNs, so this book was a good read for me. I already have the second book in the series and will read it soon.
Derrick McCLain does a fantastic job with his performance! This was my first time hearing him and I most definitely will be looking for more of his work. He was able to bring life to a sometimes clichéd storyline and brought the characters to life. He nailed all of the 'feels' and it make for good listening.
Although I did enjoy this book, I have personal issues with years long separations. I especially did not like the fact that the MC Ryan issued MC Brandon an ultimatum regarding their relationship (this is always a no-no). Ryan seemingly totally disregarded Brandon's struggle with coming out and for me it diluted what was a solid friendship. Ryan wronged Brandon in a big way, so I would have preferred a little more groveling before Brandon took him back so easily and after such a long separation. But they get their HEA so I'm good!
