Publisher's Summary

It took losing nearly everything to discover what they can't live without.
A few excruciating minutes pinned under a burning beam cost Ryan Ward his job as a firefighter, the easy camaraderie of his coworkers, his current girlfriend, and damn near cost him his left leg. Giving up, though, wasn't an option. He fought and won the battle back to health, over a painful year. Now, choosing a new profession, going back to school, and renting a room from the college groundskeeper should be simple.
Until he realizes he's falling in love with his housemate and things take a turn for the complicated.
John Barrett knows about loss. After moving twice to stay in touch with his kids, he could only watch as his ex-wife whisked them away to California. Offering Ryan a room seems better than rattling around his empty house alone. But as casual friendship moves to something more, and emotions heat up, the big old house feels like tight quarters.
It's nothing they can't learn to navigate, until life adds in unhappy teen kids, difficult family members, and mysterious deaths on campus. Rebuilding will be far from easy, even for two guys willing to open their minds, and hearts.

Excellent book expertly narrated

This is one of my favourite books and to hear it brought to life by the incredible Gomez Pugh is such a treat. I am hoping book 2 will also be released on audio.

Loved the book, great performance

I love Kaje Harper, and I have read and loved John and Ryans' books a few times, the stories are well drawn, the characters feel real, in real life situations, and are beautifully drawn. I wasn't sure about Gomez Pugh as the storyteller...he's my Vic and Jacob from the Psycop books, but, much as he brought those fantastic books to life so does he here, and not in a way that has me looking back to those very disparate characters. Well worth a listen and your money.
