Publisher's Summary

Matt Bowers' life ended at 16, when a vicious betrayal by someone who he should have been able to trust left him a shell of himself, fighting OCD and PTSD, living in constant fear, and always running. When he buys a remote tract of land, he thinks he’s found the perfect place to hide from the world and attempt to establish some peace. For 10 years, he believes he’s found a measure of comfort, until the day a stranger begins to run on Matt’s road.
He returns every day, an unwelcome intrusion into Matt’s carefully structured life. Matt appeals to the local sheriff, who cannot help him since the jogger is doing nothing wrong. Gradually, after tentatively breaking the ice, Matt begins to accept the man’s presence.
But when the runner doesn’t show up one day, it throws Matt’s world into chaos, and he must make the hardest decision of his life.

5* across the board

I loved this book when I first read an excerpt Parker Williams posted on social media. I then waited many months for the full story to be released. I was overjoyed when not too long afterwards Parker announced an audio version was to be released.
It did not dissapoint. Patrick Zeller is a new performer to me and I think he did an amazing job portraying the characters and the angst and uncertainty Matt lives with on a daily basis.
I know I will be listening to this again and again.

A good read but stop the stigmatising.

Any additional comments?

Overall, an excellent read, especially the first 3/4. A small but critical point but I get very tired of authors writing gay fiction referring to "clean" sexually transmitted infection/ disease results (as in this book). The opposite of "clean" is "dirty" and many have spent decades tackling discrimination when it comes to HIV and AIDS and other sexually transmitted infections. You are writers for goodness sake ... do your research ... find new combinations of words ... but do not use the word "clean" in this context. It is deeply stigmatising.
