Distinctly average. Really lacks something and I found myself getting bored frequently.
Nothing really happens in the book but I think the authors were aiming for a story about a relationship developing. However, I never felt that emotionally engaged and the book really needed something more.
The narrator’s fake laugh is really annoying too. I read one review that said they loved the narrator and laughed along with him, but that couldn’t be further from the truth for me. I think the narrator made this average book even worse.

Riley Hart and Devon McCormack are great authors on their own, but together they are fabulous. Add Michael Pauley to the mix and you’re guaranteed a great listen.
Ethan Harris is sure he’s straight – until Sean Wright rescues him twice in one night. Suddenly it’s not about body parts, but about the person. This is the best part of GFY (gay for you). It’s one of my favourite tropes and this book is at the top of my list.
I also love when heroes are broken in some way. Watching them tackle those issues and losses in their lives is painful yet makes me hopeful.
I didn’t see the dark moment coming and found myself tearing up on the subway (thank you Devon and Riley). Although Sean is suffering physically, it’s Ethan’s emotional anguish that tore me up inside. The death of someone close is tough enough, but abandonment after that is brutal. Because I had connected emotionally with these characters, I was drawn in and shared their pain.
I love the challenges as they brought needed humour. Sean’s family are precious, the men’s friends are quirky and the relationship between Ethan and his aunt is heartbreaking. That added another layer to his journey.
Of course there is a happy ending, but I love when the men have to fight for it.
Although I’ve left Michael Pauley for last, that is only because there’s not much to say – because he was perfect…again. He is great at hitting the emotional notes perfectly and differentiating voices wonderfully.
On the whole, the book is just awesome.

Every emotion, every moment and every word in this book was better than the last. I found myself explaining to my husband why I was laughing to myself and he didn't get it. So much fun to be had. Michael Pauley is an amazing narrator. He brings so much to the characters. I have to admit that my audible library is full of books narrated by him. Luck for me they are written by Devon McCormack. I'm totally addicted to his writing.
