Alternately lauded as the single-handed savior of NASA and condemned as a reckless, hot-headed bully, Curt has been through the wringer of public opinion and come out on top. When he embarks on his final mission with NASA, Curt figures there's no curveball that life has left to throw him.
But when the role of spacecraft communicator is passed to a young engineer back in Houston who he's never met, Curt's mission takes on a new trajectory.
Patrick Harte's life is turned upside down when he's called to fill in at mission control, working directly under his hero, Curtis Larkin.
Falling for Curt is just a small step for Patrick - but it's one giant leap to think that the astronaut could ever return his feelings.
After Curt connects with Patrick from worlds away, he can't imagine life on earth without the other man...Despite the fact that he's never laid eyes on Patrick. And their problems won't stop once he's cleared for landing.
The bad-boy astronaut is no stranger to controversy - but will the genuine and soft-spoken man of his dreams be able to keep up with the trouble Curt seems to stir everywhere he goes?

Amazing book and an even better narration!
We love Kay Simone, we love this book and now we love this Audiobook, so so so so so so SOOOOO good! Seriously!
This is a story about Patrick Harte who works as a NASA engineer, and after he is called up to fill in as Chief Communications Officer on the current mission he finds himself living his dream and spending hours of time speaking to Commander Curtis Larkin, his childhood hero. Curt is on his last space mission, and unsure what is next for his life back on earth, but finding himself enamored by Patrick, finding himself pouring out his heart, his wishes and his dreams is not what he expected.
One Giant Leap is the ultimate slow-burn romance, the tingle of anticipation between these 2 men starts from the first time they ‘meet’. Even though they come from different backgrounds, ages, and experiences they love space, and connect early in the story over their amazement of all that is out there. It is lovely, and sweet. Kay Simone has created a unique story here, and even thought Curt and Patrick don’t physically meet till 80% through the book they have a connection that is powerful; they were made for each other. One Giant Leap is a long book and the audiobook is 10+ hours as well. But it never really feels long, Kay Simone builds anticipation in Curt and Patrick’s relationship. And adding the NASA aspect is truly fascinating, romantic in itself and exciting.
Now, granted we love this book – or anything Kay Simone writes, but adding Greg Tremblay’s narration is a combination that blazing. One Giant Leap features 12+ characters, both men and women with different nationalities, and Greg creates distinct personalities for them all. Never once did we feel confusion on which astronaut was speaking, or if we are listing to Patrick or Curtis, there is a seamlessness that Greg creates that truly feels like this is narrated by multiple people.
We are so excited that Kay Simone’s One Giant Leap is finally an audiobook – it is amazing! Greg Tremblay adds so much to the sizzling relationship between Curt and Patrick, bringing this amazing book to an amazing love-story. One Giant Leap is an Audiobook not to be missed!

The Book was 6 Stars, The Audible is 10+!
Absolutely loved this book. I read it a while back and when it came out on Audible it was a must buy!
It resonated with me from the beginning, I find it very hard to stop listening now, to Curt and Patrick - as Greg brings them to life. I'm a big nerd when it comes to books I love, I find the Audible a great complement to the Kindle or printed version. Patrick was that guy who lived his whole life shooting for a dream and instead of becoming bitter he was a savior of a mission which could have gone horribly wrong. Curt recognizes what this guy is, without ever laying eyes on him. This book gets to my heart and touches me deeply. You'll fall in love with both these guys! I keep hoping for a 2nd book on them - I'll comfort myself with her other books! Thanks Kay - for giving us this story and finally, the Audible! Thanks for writing guys that sound like they could be real - and giving them heart.
