A spin-off of The Stars that Tremble
Sandy Sullivan has gotten so good at covering up his emotions, he's waiting for someone to hand him an Oscar. On the outside he's a cheerful, funny guy, but his good humor is the only thing keeping awful memories from his army tours in Afghanistan at bay. Worse, Sandy is now adrift after breaking up with the only man who ever understood him but who also wanted to fix him the way Sandy's been fixing up his new house in Brooklyn.
Everett Blake seems to have everything: good looks, money, and talent to spare. He parlayed a successful career as a violinist into a teaching job at Manhattan's elite Olcott School, and until four months ago he even had the perfect boyfriend. Now he's on his own, trying to give his new apartment some personality, even if it is unkempt compared to the perfect home he had shared with his ex. When hiring a contractor to renovate his kitchen sends Sandy barreling into his life, Everett is only too happy to accept the chaos - until he realizes he's in over his head.

I loved this book, and this is due mostly to the level of character development that Kate but into it! The story just leaps out at you in the best way possible, you will see! Michael and Kate's talents come together to make an audiobook you will enjoy again and again!

I love Sandy, he just walked right into my heart! He seems to have it all, but all of that is on the surface, a breakup and memories of his time in Afghanistan have him not sure what the future holds for him, he is just kind of existing, that is until he goes to design a certain kitchen...

Everett is learning to live on his own, be his own person without his ex. He decides to get his kitchen in his new place renovated, and that is when he meets Sandy, and the chemistry between the two shows at once!

Can Everett and Sandy turn their attraction into something more, or will they let the past and their problems keep them from something that just may heal them both?

I really love this story, and Michael brings it to life in a way I don't think someone else could! Grab your copy today friends! You will love it too!

Almost perfect.

Any additional comments?

There were some truly tender moment in this story and I truly did love Sandy and Evan together. There was just something missing, something... I don't know. This had the potential to be a beautiful love story.

The narrator was decent and I appreciated that he did sound around the age of the main characters who were 35 and 40. His voice was smooth and easy to listen too. So, although the story didn't make it to 4 stars for me, I did enjoy it and was very happy with the narrator and entertainment value.
