It's been seven years since Daniel Finley left his hometown in Florida for the hustle and bustle of Chicago's city life.
Since then, he's worked hard for his position at the prestigious law firm Leighton & Associates, even when it's caused distance and isolation from his family and friends. But that's all about to change.
On his 30th birthday, he receives the one thing he never dared hope for. Something that was promised to him years earlier - a note. One simple sentence from the man he's never been able to forget.
Six words will forever change the course of their lives.
Brantley Hayes has it all. Or so he thinks. When he first made the decision to take a job down in Florida, his family thought he was crazy. But, after years of living in the quiet beach town, he finally feels a sense of community. He's surrounded himself with friends who are like family, has a job he loves, and owns a spectacular beachfront property that is his sanctuary.
Yet he still feels unfulfilled, as if a piece of the puzzle is missing, and he knows exactly which piece it is. On an impulse, he follows through with a promise he made years earlier. A promise to call home the one he sent away.
Nothing is as simple as it seems.
After years of separation, the former lovers are reunited, but Brantley wasn't expecting to encounter the high walls now guarding Daniel's heart.
Daniel may not be the same person he was when he left, but he knows that the first step to healing is the note in his hand.

To much back and forth
Is there anything you would change about this book?
I had trouble figuring out whether I was listening to present day or flashbacks. Could have been a great story, but I kept losing interest.

If you could sum up Finley in three words, what would they be?
Intricate, heartbreaking, sexy
What was one of the most memorable moments of Finley?
The whole damn book! Seriously, I'm hard pressed to pick just one. But the first time that Fin and Brantley are back together in the biblical sense was a thing of beauty.
What about Charlie David’s performance did you like?
Again, every damn thing. The way he can convey emotions and situations with the tone of his voice always amazes me and makes any book he's narrating just that much better.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
All of the above. You will experience the spectrum while listening to this. I laughed, cried, laughed while I cried, my heart broke more than once....but I assure you it's all worth it in the end.
Any additional comments?
After listening to the Preslocke books I seem to be on an Ella Frank kick and I couldn't be happier. The woman knows how to write a book let me tell you. There was a minimal level of angst in this book that wasn't in the Preslocke books, but as the story unfolds you see that it plays into the story.
Daniel Finley fell in love with his Professor in college and had his heart torn to shreds when said Professor basically forced him to attend law school in Chicago. He swore he'd never be that vulnerable again... ever. But then a letter arrives just days before Fin's 30th birthday and his life is turned upside down all over again. Determined to hurt Brantley, to make him feel the pain Fin felt all those years ago when he made the choice to send him away, Fin flies home for the first time since he left.
Brantley doesn't recognize the man standing before him. He sees shadows of the man he never stopped loving, but there's a hardness to Fin's posture, darkness in the depths of his eyes and it's killing Brantley. The knowledge that he's the one that put that pain there.
One man determined to take what he needs and walk away without a care, one determined to bring the love of his life back home where he belongs... make for an explosive, intense and passionate two weeks. But who will come out on "top" in the end?
Wonderful, fantastic, amazing story. Buy it, listen to it, love it! You will, I promise.
