His younger siblings, his best friend; but love has always eluded him.
He thought he’d found the possibility of it once, experiencing a connection during secret encounters so intense, that years later, it still fuels his fantasies.
Content in every other aspect of his life, but tired of empty hook-ups and mediocre attraction, Nolan’s starting to think that maybe he’s just not meant to find "the one".
However, as they say, timing is every thing. What happens when the one that got away comes back? Does he take his shot at the future he’s always imagined, or is it just too much to hope for?
With external pressures, internal fears, and a meddling sister, one thing is certain; Nolan’s settled life is about to be turned upside down.
After all, things have never been dull in Plantain - why would now be any different?

Love is found when you least expect it
Nolan works for his father's construction company. After failed relationships and one night stands, he is giving up on love. One day he goes to a meeting at the town hall to discuss a new project to renovate the local high school. His contact turns out to be Rupert, the one that got away. Rupert is several years younger and was closeted in high school. In fact, he dated Nolan's younger sister for 3 years. But Nolan saw through Rupert's veneer and knew that he was gay, too. He tried to act on it one evening, but friends interfered and it never happened. Now it is 7 years later, and he discovers that Rupert has (and had) feelings for him as well. They begin dating. Suddenly some odd things start happening. The plans for the school get switched, a strange car is seen driving past Nolan's house, and a homophobe is out to destroy Rupert.
An enjoyable romance with some steamy scenes. Plotted well and with straightforward and non-sappy or dorky dialogue. The narrator, JJ Jenness, was pretty good, but he had the tendency to make all the voices somewhat the same - all with the "gay accent" stereotype, including some of the female characters. I'm not sure if Mr. Jenness actually speaks this way, he kind of did in the introduction and the closing credits of the book, so maybe this is just him. As a gay man, I sometimes find it irritating when narrator's speak that way, assuming that most gays speak that way. That is a falsehood. Unless the character is a real flamer, most gay men speak normally as any other male does and it lends more credibility to not have the gay accent. I don't mean to diminish Mr. Jenness' talents - he was actually pretty good overall. I've heard worse!

Sweet with a side of spice
Rupert and Nolan are the hot guys in this spicy story.
From dating Nolan 's sister to dating Nolan. These guys end up working together. Eventually they become so much more than friends.
We see their first date and a few hot weekends together.
Some minimal drama at work. Some more hot times. Then they work out their drama. Liked the story. Narrator was well suited for this audiobook.
A well done treat.
