Publisher's Summary

Follow the money or follow your heart? Either way, you lose.
When a blown tire leads directly to mind-blowing sex with a white knight named Dakota, pro-hockey player Bryce Lowery discovers he is most definitely gay.
Being with Dakota opens up a whole new world. Bryce can’t imagine life without him. But he refuses to be Bryce's dirty little secret. If he wants to keep Dakota, he's either going to have to come out publicly or retire and walk away from millions of dollars.
Bryce Lowery feels like the answer to all of Dakota's prayers. But is Dakota willing to leave the only life he's ever known only to be thrust into the spotlight as the boyfriend of the first out gay hockey player? Would their relationship even survive it?
He'll lose Bryce if he doesn’t, because Bryce will leave eventually. No one would turn down millions of dollars for a nobody with nothing.
City Boy is a first-time gay, fish-out-of-water, May/December love story with a happy ending. It features snarky siblings, a dirty-talking farmer, lots of food, and big choices. (No poultry was harmed in the making of this book.)

Sexy, fun, adorable, sweet...I love a good fish out of water story and when combined with an age gap between partners, great side and secondary characters, and a happy ending I'm a very happy camper. City Boy offered not only romance, but some twists and turns that kept the story flowing well and me interested throughout.

I enjoyed Michael Pauley's narration overall and thought he did a good job bringing the story to life and giving the character's personalities a chance to shine.

Note for sticklers: Michael Pauley's tone and inflection sometimes gets a bit too breathy and he slipped out of the character voice for Dakota a few times. Enough that during dialogue portions I sometimes had to rewind to listen to a section and listen again to understand what was happening.

Perfect hockey romance

Amazing story, perfectly read! This is a great story for anyone into M/M romance, hockey romance, or especially both! The narrator did a wonderful job bringing the story to life, and every single character in it feels so realistic between the writing and the way they're voiced. Don't miss this book!

Very good overall

Who doesn't like a good GFY, hockey romance - especially when it's accompanied with good narration? It's a sweet story. Bryce, a hockey player who's out with an injury meets Dakota, a farmer. Bryce is beginning to suspect that he's not entirely straight and when he meets Dakota, that point is very obvious judging by the attraction Bryce feels for the younger man.
Michael Pauley is a really good choice of narrator - he distinguished between the characters well - but, there were times that he sort of 'lost' Dakota's voice (he sounded a bit off). Overall, I enjoyed the story and narration. I would recommend 😊
I received a copy of the audio from the author, however, my opinion/review are my own.
