Publisher's Summary

Daniel: I suck at relationships and don't trust anyone, but there are reasons for that. For one thing, every person I've ever cared about has let me down. The only recent exception: O'Leary's town veterinarian...my new best friend.  

I came to O'Leary for a fresh start. To pare things down to essentials. To forget about the failures in my past. The last thing I need is complications, and most definitely not a boyfriend.  

Julian: I've lived in O'Leary my entire life and learned to fly under the radar a long time ago. I do what's expected, say what's expected, and keep to myself as much as possible. It's a hell of a lot simpler spending my time working with animals than trying to interact with actual people. The one unlikely exception: the gorgeous guy who moved to a cabin just outside of town and somehow became my best friend.  

But friendships are complicated, and one morning I find myself accidentally telling the whole town the biggest lie of my life. Which is how Daniel Michaelson, my very straight, very hot best friend becomes my fake boyfriend, even though he's most definitely not my lover.

from friends to lovers 😍

My second review for today.
It's review time 🎧
The Gift: Love in O’Leary Series, Book 2 (Unabridged)
By May Archer
Narrated by Alexander Cendese, Iggy Toma

Narrator score🎧 ; both narrators as always are Incredible. I loved the voices of the vet family. Every brother got a very nice voice with character that suits the personality.

Level of steam🔥: the book didn't started hot. It took time. The friendship between the two was the main issue. And I loved it. It was a slow burn but a very good one.

Level of anxiety and sadness0😱😢: yet again as the first book in the series the book isn't sad per say .... but the feeling are deep and I'm a cry baby so I shed a tear or 20 🙈

The book itself📖: I loved the book. Much more than the first one I'll admit. The story was built on friendship first and foremost. The reason they started they relationship was because of act of loyalty protectiveness and friendship. And it was a wonderful slow burn. Don't get me wrong when they got to the hot part, it was HOT. But it wasn't the main issue at all. And I adored it

Hotness, Characters, Plot, and Performance: Oh My

I bought this book because of the galactic, stellar ratings by listeners. I was not disappointed at all. There was the hotness of the two main subjects. Okay, there was also the depth and personal character of the main and secondary actors. The brilliant dialogue was brilliantly performed by Alexander and Iggy (I feel like I know them now). And, the plot was multifaceted and captivating. I would be dishonest if I did not mention that the romantic (sexual) content seemed to spring from the mind of a woman. Well, it did, so no huge surprise there, but it was not a distraction. I enjoyed every minute of getting to know Julian and Daniel. I'm now looking for more books by May Archer.

Amazing book

I love a good fake boyfriend story. And this is definitely that! Julian is in love with his “straight” best friend Daniel. He tells the teeniest lie and says him and Daniel are together. There is definitely a little angst in this book. I loved seeing their relationship develop. The narrators did an amazing job!

Great story

I loved the first book in the series but The Gift is even better!! Normally I’m not a big fan of GFY but there was just something magical about Julian and Daniel. There’s a nice little mystery in this book as well. Cannot recommend his book enough!!
The dual narration by Iggy and Alexander was amazing! I absolutely adore the work these two do!

so much fun

What a fun and cute story. I loved both of the main characters and was happy to get to know a few of the townsfolk a little better. Can't wait for the next one.
