Publisher's Summary

A love of art....
A mutual interest in art draws two shy university students together. Ben admires Vinnie's painting of the university building, so Vinnie invites him to an exhibition of his artwork. From a wealthy family, Ben purchases some of Vinnie's art and arranges for the artist to personally hang the paintings in his apartment.
Starry, starry night....
Ben commissions Vinnie to paint his portrait, in order to spend more time with the artist. On the night of the sitting, Vinnie fingerpaints the starry night on Ben's chest... and they kiss. They begin a relationship beneath the night sky, God's own canvas.
But every relationship has its ups and downs and so it is with theirs. When Ben thinks Vinnie spends too much time with a fellow artist, his jealousy drives a wedge between them and forces Vinnie into the very thing Ben dreads.
Hold tight to your dreams....
Ben and Vinnie will have to walk through fire before they can find one another again. But if they believe, and if they keep their faith in the night sky and each other, just maybe they can make their dreams of love come true.

4.5 stars overall.

This is not my usual type of book, I'm not fond of long separations and misunderstandings. I did think both main characters would have benefited from a serious intervention. Vinnie most of all!
The writing is good, the back story well fleshed out. The secondary characters were delightful, just how a good family should be. The ending is very satisfying, I do love a HEA.
Joel Leslie is one of my favourite narrators and he brings these characters and the story to life.

I received this code and audio in exchange for an honest opinion.

Great story and great narrator.

The first thing that hit me with this story was the British accent of the narrator. I hadn’t realized it had been so long since I had heard my own native accent spoken on tape. After a while Joel’s voice had me immersed in the story.

After a while I wanted to bang the main character’s heads together. Ben and Vinnie are lovely but they don’t communicate and so they end up arguing, making up, and starting the cycle over, and over.

Vinnies brothers are funny and likable, although I did want to punch Finn a couple of times, until he found his love interest.

The final character I want to mention is James. I have a few friends who would love to teach him a lesson if he were a real person. Men like that only belong in one place—jail. He pounces on the cracks in Vinnie and
Ben’s relationship, and takes advantage of Vinnie’s great nature.

My favorite bit had to be the painting. All through the book is the painting of the night sky, but the best two (to me) are: the one Vinnie does on Ben’s skin (on the book cover) and the one they do together at the end. They are both beautifully described and so romantic.
