Publisher's Summary

The first book in a new series by Lucy Lennox!

Nico:

I left my family and tiny Texas hometown 15 years ago to escape small-town gossips and to give my mom and sister the chance at a better life. But when a phone call from an attorney back home informs me that my sister passed away, leaving me custody of her newborn baby, I'm shocked out of the steady life I've built for myself running a tattoo shop in San Francisco.

The thing is: I don't do babies. And I don't do small towns. Or commitment. And I especially don't do family. My plan is to go back to Hobie just long enough to sign adoption papers, giving my niece the kind of stable, loving family I could never provide.

But the moment I meet my niece in the arms of Weston Wilde, my sister's best friend and the town's handsome doctor, my plans begin to change. Because suddenly, I see a different future. One with the very thing I thought I never deserved: a family. If only I can convince West that I'm not the same good-for-nothing kid ready to bolt when things get tough.

Weston:

There's one thing I know for sure about Nico Salerno: he was a good-for-nothing as a kid and judging by the purple-haired, tattooed punk who shows up at his sister's funeral, he hasn't changed. There's no way I'm letting him take custody of my best friend's baby.

But the more time I spend around him, the more I realize that his rough exterior is just a shell and that beneath all the tattoos is a scared, insecure man searching for a place to belong. And pretty soon I know exactly where he belongs: in my bed and by my side.

The problem is, he abandoned his family once before, how do I know that if we become a family he won't do it again?

awesome story great narrator

it's challenging listening to gay romance when I am starved for romance in my life too...though I keep listening just the same

Lucy Lennox writes great and I wish all of the books she writes would come out in audio too
I think they're a few from the Made Marion series are not released in audio form Jude's Lullaby is not released and audio dramas are what I listening to

Michael Dean has an incredible voice so much passion and range of voices he can do I sometimes have to remind myself that it's just one artist

I wish someday to meet someone like Michael Dean to speak to me like he does in the audio dramas

So amazingly sweet and incredibly emotional!

Honestly so amazingly sweet and incredibly emotional at the same time. This book made me cry, tear up, happy, and made heart jump with love. Nico is so sweet but broken inside, West is just the guy he needs. Strong, kind, and gentle.

Michael Dean is absolutely outstanding! He nailed both of this characters so much.
Him narrating this entire book is a fantastic treat. He's a true actor making the entire book come to life as a film. I know I say that lot with other narrators but truly Michael Dean is just truly something else. He bring emotions in to the dialogue unlike any other narrators. He actually acts as he narrates. all the sobbing cries, the laughter, etc.
all the emotions in every dialogue he does is impressive. He reminds me of Alexander Cendace, another truly impressive narrator and actor.

a hot opposites attract romance

Loved the build in their relationship and the supporting cast of friends and family made this even more enjoyable book. I loved how conflict was resolved by communication and honesty.

Love the book!

Love the book! However, the narrators voice just wasn't for me. I had a difficult time getting past his voice and laugh in spots. The narrator tried hard to be great but the voice just isn't. I pushed passed only because the book was fantastic!

Slightly Disappointed

The story was satisfying, and I liked the characters, but for me this book's downfall was the writing. There is a serious lack of scene-setting, there were countless occurrences of "I could feel", "I could smell", "I could see" etc., and while I fell for the characters, Nico sometimes read very young.

Ultimately, I intend to read the next in the series, but I'm really hoping that the author's editor helps out a bit more.

Turned out great

At first I struggled with this one. West was such a huge ass that I wanted to deck him if I could. Even after they started fooling around I couldn't understand how Nico could be attracted to such a jerk and how West could claim to like Nico but still go back to being an ass. One would think that if he loved his friend he should of supported her decision from the start and not been so quick to judge.

From about the mid point on it was great. The story flowed nicely and stayed interesting. I loved all the characters. Well maybe not the awful step brothers but luckily they played a smaller part. The grandpa is a bit of a naughty old man kinda like Tilly in Maid Marian series. It added a little bit of humor. I loved how it ended. Everything was wrapped up very nicely. This is a great story with a happy ending that isn't too gushy.

Michael does a great performance. I saw somewhere someone commented they didn't like his "fake country accent" but I think he did rather well. He always does a great job.

I have read the book, but too hear Michael Pauley put voice to characters is fabulous.
