A single bullet destroyed the dreams of Dr. Jordan Peterson. With his lover dead, Jordan descends into an endless spiral of self-destruction that nearly costs him his friends, his career and his life. When Jordan finds himself working closely with the aloof Lucas Conover, the investment banker's mysterious past and unexpected kindness shocks him back into a life and emotions he'd thought lost forever.
The betrayal by the foster brother he'd worshiped taught Lucas Conover never to trust or believe in anyone. Living a solitary life doesn't free him of the nightmare of his youth; it reinforces his belief that he would never fall in love. When the death of one of his clients forces him to work closely with Dr. Jordan Peterson, he meets a person whose suffering exceeds his own. Though Jordan rejects his effort to help, something within Luke pushes him discover more about the first man to ever get under his skin. As Luke lets down his guard and Jordan lets go of his pain, desire takes control. Each man must come to terms with past struggles if they are to create a future together. And learning to trust in themselves and love again after tragedy and a lifetime of pain, may be the only thing that saves them in the end.

After the Fire by Felice Stevens is part of the Through Hell & Back series. It can be read/listen to as a standalone but i would recommend reading in order if you are looking for a series read to enjoy fully.
This book and series is a heartbreaking read of loss and struggle in life. The angst and emotions i went through with this book really pull on the heart strings. The characters really pull you in and don't let go and as i'm reviewing the Audio version of this book. The narration of this book is spot on keeping my attention. The reason for this is sometimes with Audio books no thought has been put into who will be narrating the story. Which for me spoils the enjoyment so when an author takes the time to make the voices fit the character/characters i really appreciate it more.
"Life isn't ever definite. When you think you have it all figured out, it bites you in the ass, letting you know not to take anything for granted."
If you're looking for emotion packed read then look no further!!
