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.

Perfect Narrator for this Series

What did you like best about this story?

Loved the story, but the epilogue melted my heart.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Wanted to? I did. Listened in one sitting, couldn't stop, and didn't want to stop.


Any additional comments?

This is such a realistic romance, where the main characters are far from perfect, and screw up (sometimes royally), where they are just these complex and flawed people, but who are also so completely relatable, that you cannot help rooting for them to pull their heads out of their a***s (*cough* mainly Raymond *cough*) and realize what's there for the taking. True love.

I loved it. It's got a great plot, the pacing is pretty darn perfect, and Raymond and David have great chemistry together. Though there was some miscommunication, it fits really well and it didn't feel unnecessary to me. It also has just the perfect amount of angst.

Michael Ferraiuolo is the perfect narrator for this series. 100% - he brilliantly narrates these characters, bringing the emotion and sentiment of the story to life.

I absolutely loved the audio and story - Highly recommended.

Note: this shouldn't be tried as a standalone, you really need to at least read and/or listen to the first two books of the series in order to follow along easily.

Crying tears of happiness

I remember when I first read this book. I sat down and started it, not getting up again until I was finished. This happens a lot with Santino's books.

Listening to it was almost as good as reading it for the first time. The narration is perfection. Michale Ferraiuolo has a beautiful voice, making the characters come to life in a way few others could.

The story stands strong. Powerful, beautiful, heartbreaking and happy. It's one of my favorites in the series and I'll probably listen to it over and over, until the end of time. Because stories about love live forever.
