    Can a person’s life change in just one day? How about seven? This is the story of seven pivotal days in Evan Donaldson’s life. Evan was a teenage street hustler when Father Valentin talked him into coming to Saint Bartholomew’s Academy. In that one day, Evan’s entire life changed. That’s the day he met his roommate, Clay Mueller, and the day Evan began to live. But Evan’s life would change again and again, from abuse to first love, to separation and heartbreak, and eventually to starting his own family.

    Gordon says: "OK story. Narrator needs to execute punctuation."

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would have read it instead of listening to it.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Kind of jumps over time but that could have been the way it was narrated. See next item.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He ran on without regard to commas, periods, exclamation points, or obvious changes in time. From one scene to another there is a ten year jump but because the narrator ran it like a stop sign, it was not evident at first. Sometimes, it was difficult to tell which character was


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    I'm not sure. I like other Andrew Grey novels and they all seem to have similar themes but this one just didn't grab me.

    Just out of the service, Dave Henderson is home and ready to enjoy the sexual freedom he didn’t have in the Marine Corps. When he meets Jack Stonner at a party thrown by a neighbor, Dave is immediately attracted to him and launches a seduction, one that starts with sex but soon grows into love.

    Would you try another book from John Simpson and/or John Simpson?

    Not sure


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Authors don't automatically make good narrators.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of John Simpson?

    Sean Crisden! If the author wants to improve his narrative skills, listen to Sean and learn.


    Any additional comments?

    I only rated the story and overall a 3 simply because I couldn't get any further in the review without putting something. If I finish the book I hope and can update my review.
