Publisher's Summary

How do you save a drowning man when that drowning man is you?
Jake Moore's world fits too tightly around him. Every penny he makes as a welder goes to care for his dying father, an abusive, controlling man who's the only family Jake has left. Because of a promise to his dead mother, Jake resists his desire for other men, but it leaves him consumed by darkness.
It takes all of Dallas Yates's imagination to see the possibilities in the fatigued art deco building on WeHo's outskirts, but what seals the deal is a shy smile from the handsome metal worker across the street. Their friendship deepens while Dallas peels back the hardened layers strangling Jake's soul. It's easy to love the sweet, artistic man hidden behind Jake's shattered exterior, but Dallas knows Jake needs to first learn to love himself.
When Jake's world crumbles, he reaches for Dallas, the man he's learned to lean on. It's only a matter of time before he's left to drift in a life he never wanted to lead and while he wants more, Jake's past haunts him, making him doubt he's worth the love Dallas is so desperate to give him.

Another Wonderful collaboration.

This was a good read in Ebook, well an excellent read actually! But add in Greg Tremblay's fabulous voices and emotional intonations and you have a work of art to match the work Jake would do.

Disappointing

I had to suspend disbelief for a lot of this audiobook. It was angsty- way too angsty- to the point of being overblown, drawn out pain and uncomfortable listening at times. Sometimes I just wished the author would just pull off the band aid quickly rather than slowly.
I did not connect with either MC. Jake was just so ridiculously weighted by his past problems that it was unreal for a grown man to have survived without taking to drink and drugs. And Dallas was so understanding and kind all the time he was one dimensional.
There was another side story running through this that sounded like it was cobbled together with little thought and even though the threads were pulled together it still left me wondering why it was even in the book.
There were also some triggery scenes in this book I had to fast forward. I understand hurt/comfort books are a thing, but it seems they are not for me. I much prefer Rhys Fords urban fantasy, as that is where she shines
