The only thing in Colin Mulligan's life that makes sense is taking cars apart and putting them back together. In the auto shop where he works with his father and brothers, he tries to get through the day without having a panic attack or flying into a rage. Drinking helps. So does running and lifting weights until he can hardly stand. But none of it can change the fact that he's gay, a secret he has kept from everyone.
Rafael Guerrera has found ways to live with the past he's ashamed of. He's dedicated his life to social justice work and to helping youth who, like him, had very little growing up. He has no time for love. Hell, he barely has time for himself. Somehow, everything about miserable, self-destructive Colin cries out to him. But down that path lie the troubles Rafe has worked so hard to leave behind. And as their relationship intensifies, Rafe and Colin are forced to dredge up secrets that both men would prefer stay buried.

So Emotional it reduced me to tears

Would you listen to Out of Nowhere again? Why?

YES, over and over. It was a beautiful story, yet heartbreaking. But it was real and it had so many steamy moments you would never have enough!.

Who was your favorite character and why?

That is a very difficult question, I found both male leads where as important as each other and although at times Colin can frustrate you (not in a bad way) as in the writer intended for this, you understand as you read on why he behaves the way he does and you can't help but feel for him in so many ways.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Well I loved seeing Daniel from the first book again, and loved the part when he comes to see Colin, their interaction is adorable and can I say Spencer did such an amazing job, in some parts there were 4/5 different characters in one room and he did all their voices brilliantly.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me cry most of the times. I actually cried more in this book than with the first one, there were so many powerful moments, so many things that weren't spoken and yet you felt each and every emotion.

Any additional comments?

The Author of these series has blown my mind. I actually thought it was going to be impossible to top of her first book, and don't get me wrong it was an incredible story, but this book, was cathartic, was very raw, honest and real and I feel I went on a journey with Colin and Rafe. Also can I say being Mexican and named Gabriela almost made me feel like I was part of the story.

5+ Stars for Spectacular Narration!

Any additional comments?

While it's true Roan Parrish created these characters, Spencer Goss gave them life.

In my original book review for this story I admitted that while it takes real chutzpah to focus the sequel on the biggest antagonist from the first story, Roan Parrish absolutely makes Colin Mulligan's story engaging, believable, and engrossing.'s Spencer Goss's narration that made me empathize with Colin and hope for him. There is such a strong element of hurt/comfort that is brilliantly conveyed through the narration.

Spencer Goss perfectly captures the complicated, broken person Colin is and made me feel sorry for Colin and all of his self loathing. He made my heart hurt at the self harm and terrible chances Colin takes and made me so happy when Rafael Guerrera begins to break down Colin's walls. And it's Spencer Goss's narration that made me yearn for Colin's HEA.

The narration for Out of Nowhere is SPECTACULAR. The story is angst-filled, complicated, sometimes hard to get through, and I needed a new box of tissues and a pint of ice cream by the end...but the narration is truly fantastic.

Highly Recommended!

NOTE: This is not a standalone.
