For fashion designer Julian Cornell, appearances mean everything. His love affairs are strictly casual, and the only thing he cares about is making his clothing line a success. A chance encounter with the man he loved long ago has Julian thinking for the first time in years there may be more to life than being seen at the best parties and what designer labels to wear.
When Julian's world takes an unexpected turn, it's Nick who helps him regain perspective on what matters most in life. Julian, in turn, helps Nick accept who he is and understand he isn't responsible for tragedies he couldn't prevent. Lost love found can be even sweeter the second time around, and after all the years apart, both men learn to look beyond the surface to find the men they are inside.
Contains mature themes.

A Story of Reconnection
This may be my favorite piece yet by Stevens. It's about how two characters reconnect after so much time and are able to bring back the best in each other. It's about how two characters find love after so much time, and it's about how they are able to find new meaning with each other. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to it. There's the right balance of smut and romance, and I loved some of the secondary characters. I would be willing to try to the second part of this series, as I want to see how this group of characters grows and changes.

I feel a little odd posting this review amongst all the listeners who've expressed love for this book and its narration. I thought the concept and plot of the story held a lot of potential; heavy emotional and societal burdens create very engaging internal and external conflict for both protagonists, but I simply could not finish this. Why? The narration. Was. Terrible. I felt as though I was listening to a robot dictating the text; the narrator did a poor job of delivering dialogue that was in sync with the emotional context, and his attempts at accent changes grated on my nerves; Bachmann just wasn't made to narrate Brooklyn accents.
I feel like I've been inordinately harsh in this review, but that's my two cents. If you can make it past the irritating narration, the story is pretty good.
