Publisher's Summary

How do you save a drowning man when that drowning man is you?
Jake Moore's world fits too tightly around him. Every penny he makes as a welder goes to care for his dying father, an abusive, controlling man who's the only family Jake has left. Because of a promise to his dead mother, Jake resists his desire for other men, but it leaves him consumed by darkness.
It takes all of Dallas Yates's imagination to see the possibilities in the fatigued art deco building on WeHo's outskirts, but what seals the deal is a shy smile from the handsome metal worker across the street. Their friendship deepens while Dallas peels back the hardened layers strangling Jake's soul. It's easy to love the sweet, artistic man hidden behind Jake's shattered exterior, but Dallas knows Jake needs to first learn to love himself.
When Jake's world crumbles, he reaches for Dallas, the man he's learned to lean on. It's only a matter of time before he's left to drift in a life he never wanted to lead and while he wants more, Jake's past haunts him, making him doubt he's worth the love Dallas is so desperate to give him.

What did you love best about There's This Guy?

I really enjoyed seeing how Jake evolved as a person, in his view of himself and his self worth.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Jake, he was a very troubled soul when the book first started but overcame much by the end.


Have you listened to any of Greg Tremblay’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have listened to MANY books narrated by the very talented Greg Tremblay. This is another superb performance, although I think the voice he used for Dallas might've been slightly feminine.


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

yes, it's always a hard choice, to savor so it lasts a bit longer or "more, more, more"


Any additional comments?

There are many secondary characters in this book that are well described & memorable, like Dallas' family & Jake's boss. Would love to see a sequel where Celeste gets a HEA.

Just a warning, this is not a light & fluffy romance novel. There are some dark moments, angst & a dead guy (it is a Rhys Ford book after all) but it does have a HEA.

Wonderfully Poignant

Jake and Dallas - another improbable pair - the odds were really against these two - so many would give Dallas the advice you can't fix people.... but to me, the Lord works in mysterious ways and if there ever were such a couple, the Lord would easily put Dallas and his family in Jake's path! I fell in love with both of these guys. Rhys, you really know the meaning of suspense though! I thought we'd never get there! I thought some of Rhys' books looked silly and I am not really a fan of Silly, but not going to lie, I saw this cover and it sucked me it - to give Rhys a try and I am so glad I did. I will definitely listen to this again, and I am a keeper of my audiobooks and this will definitely be a keeper. Look forward to the next great book.
