Publisher's Summary

There are lots of things that brighten Joel's life. His three-year-old daughter, Evie, is one. His close relationship with her mother, his best friend from university, is another. Joel's boyfriend, Dan, adds spice to his child-free nights, and Joel is pretty happy with how things are.
Then one cold and rainy night, everything changes. Joel's life is turned upside down when he becomes a full-time dad to Evie, and his previously carefree relationship with Dan cracks under the strain.
Meeting Liam, who acts as if getting hurt isn't a foregone conclusion, shakes Joel to the core. Their attraction is mutual, and Liam makes no secret of how serious he is about Joel. But Joel is wary. He tells himself he's keeping Liam at a distance for Evie's sake when really he's protecting his own heart. Taking a chance on this new relationship with Liam may seem a small step - a little thing - but is it one Joel can take after losing so much already?

Not really worth listening to.

What would have made The Little Things better?

Having rather enjoyed "Scrap Metal" (Harper Lee) and a little less - "Then the Stars fall" (Brandon Witt), this story by comparison is rather lame. It is entirely formulaic, the love interest is introduced in the obvious manner; essentially the author has taken an overused romantic formula, and just added water via the character names - no drama, no twists, nothing unexpected, weakly developed characters, etc. The narration only just saved it to the extent that I listened to the end.
