One, recovering from near deadly injuries; the other, unaware of what he's been missing in his life. What one man can do, may heal them both.
Charlie Baker is recovering, slowly. Nearly dying tends to make a man reflect on each day. Take into account that his injuries were caused by a premeditated murder attempt, and he certainly isn't looking for a lover. He is barely welcoming to a friend unable to trust anyone, preferring to hide from the world hours and miles away from the memories.
Gregory Anders hadn't intended to disturb the man in silent contemplation on the beach, but when his pup, Samson, takes matters out of his hands, he's forced to at least apologize for his pet's behavior. There's no doubt for Gregory that Charlie could use a friend. Clearing the air up front that he isn't gay helps Charlie to relax, allowing for the cautious beginning of a friendship.
Two men, both alone, for different reasons. What happens when friendship bears more? When support and affection turns into attraction?
Do you take the chance of a lifetime, for the love a lifetime?

Would probably try another audiobook by this author, would be really disappointed if it had the same narrator. That would make me reconsider the purchase.
The narrator made the characters sounded like whiny, pouty children and was occasionally so over the top, it was impossible for me to ever connect to the characters. The dialogue came off as utterly absurd, instead of potentially warm and fuzzy. I would have stopped listening very early on because of the narrator, but I wanted to try to give the actual book a chance. Just couldn't manage it since the story, for me, was so overshadowed by the unfortunate narration.
I can't really say how good the book is because I couldn't finish it. I made it about halfway through. I couldn't finish it because of the narrator. I never heard such a bad match between story and narrator. The narrator was reading the sex/love scenes like they were a comedy and over-dramatized everything like it was all a big joke. If you can make it past the narrator, the story is probably ok.
