Here we have 2 full novels and 2 short stories sandwiched between.
First off is “Til Death Do Us Part” in which Henry and Sam have been married for several years. Henry leaves for a business trip, His plane crashes into the ocean in the Pacific. There are quite a few who manage to get out of the plane, only to drown because of the currents. Henry has knowledge of currents and leads two other men in the right direction toward a small island. Before Henry got off the plane, an 8 month old baby was thrust into his hands. He manages to save the baby as well. The wreck of the plane being further from the island, rescue efforts ignore the island and all are presumed dead. Henry and the two other men survive 5 years on the island when a drone being flown by picks up their images and they are rescued. Henry has become Papa to Buddy, the surviving baby, and he knows that if he is ever rescued, he wants to adopt Buddy.
Sam, meanwhile has finally moved on after three agonizing years of not being able to let go. He is now engaged to Nash and their wedding is just weeks away when the news that Henry is alive comes. Who will Sam choose.
The next two are short stories about what Henry and Sam (sorry, spoiler, but unavoidable here) go through trying to adopt Buddy once his real family has been found.
Finally, there is “To Love and to Cherish” which picks up Nash’s story 4 months after his breakup with Sam. Nash is a nurse who has become close with an elderly patient who is in for knee replacement surgery. Grampy tells Nash that he has a gay grandson that Nash should meet.

Then he is in a car accident that causes him to lose his memory of the last 4 months. While recuperating, he begins to fall in love with Miles. But what will happen if his memory returns and he realizes Miles doesn’t really live him? Or does he?
I enjoyed the stories very much, but David Gilmore’s narration was awkward and stiff. Strange ways of delivering lines that would go up at the end, almost like a question when it was a statement. He delivered the stories, but odd voices and into nations just threw things off. A different narrator might have been able to deliver the romance better.
I was given a review copy at my request and have voluntarily left this review
i think this is the first narration by this narrator ive heard.. i could be wrong but i think it is.. and i am very happily pleased... he does an awesome job.. this was well written of course because this author rocks and this narrator blew it up in a good way for the story. :) i loved it
I’d read theses books before I listened to the Audible version so I already knew I loved the storyline. It’s a treat to read a MM book that doesn’t follow the same old predictable tale - boy meets boy, boy looses boy over some stupid miscommunication, boy gets boy back and happily ever after!
These characters are great, Sam and Henry are a great couple and are tested to their absolute limits. I don’t want to say more because, trust me, you don’t want spoilers for this.
I enjoyed David Gilmore’s narration, he was an easy listen and really bought the story to life.
This is a HUGE listen, over 17 hours, so great value for money. I enjoyed it and would recommend this to anyone that likes a slice of adventure with your romance.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would definitely recommend this to friends.Its a fabulous love story.
It is not your usual romance..
Who was your favorite character and why?
I did not have favourite character because I loved all of them.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
There were a couple of poignant moments but my favourite was the reunion with Sam and Henry, admittedly there was a tear or three in my eyes.
Any additional comments?
Stick with the Narrator he really does grow on you and does a fantastic job.Just a warning, there is no separation between books, it goes from Chapter 1 to 71, so if you wanted to listen to one of the books again in the future you will have trouble finding the start.Other than that I really do recommend that you listen..
