Publisher's Summary

The Raymond Rodriguez from a few years ago wouldn't recognize the guy he is today. He's left his slacker ways far behind him and is now juggling two jobs and school. But the balancing act doesn't allow much time for the man he loves.
David is doing his best to be supportive, but problems at work and his own insecurity leave him frustrated - in more ways than the obvious - whenever he goes to bed before Raymond gets home. The heat and affection between them is still there, but they barely have the time or energy to enjoy it. And it doesn't help that Raymond is still hiding David from his colleagues.
The stress mounts so high that a vacation in paradise is filled with turmoil instead of harmony, and culminates on their return to the five boroughs with broken promises and heartache. They have to figure out how to stop allowing their differences to overshadow their love. It's the only way they'll make it to forever.

A Great Installment in David & Ray's Story

The only thing better than reading a Santino Hassell Five Boroughs novel is listening to Michael Ferraiuolo read it to me.

Interborough is no different. He makes the whole experience a pleasure! Although the publishers website indicates this as a standalone read, as the fourth in the Five Boroughs series, I feel they are better enjoyed in order.

David and Ray have been together a year now and the honeymoon phase is over in a big way. They’re often apart due to conflicting schedules and much of the time they do spend together they’re fighting.

Ray is so freakin’ stubborn and pig headed, and David’s over the top emo bullshit drives him crazy.

This is Ray’s first committed relationship and he needs to learn to deal with David’s expectations if he wants this one to succeed. As his friend Sharky tells him, “There’s more to life than making someone come.”

The chemistry between David and Ray is off the charts and both their fighting and the making up is intense.

Starting with the opening scene of David seducing Ray by sucking on a Popsicle (okay I’m easy to please), and the rest of the way through this soap opera.

I love Ferraiuolo’s style of narration because he brings so much to the story, he enriches it with his inflections and subtle nuances in the dialogue. Each character has a distinct personality and the way he flows seamlessly between each of them is amazing. He keeps the drama fresh and entertaining.

The variety in the narrator’s characters and their consistency adds to Santino Hassell’s fantastic story to make a great series even better.

Ferraiuolo’s Raymond is perfection! He’s got that accent down and keeps it consistent, and it plays off “preppy white boy”, David, perfectly.

Interborough and the entire Five Boroughs series have been amazing to enjoy in audio and I highly recommend both the author and the narrator. I only wish the review platforms allowed a half score as Interborough’s story would definitely rank a 4.5 from me while Ferraiuolo’s translation is a beautiful 5.
