A Taste of Love Story
Sebastian Franklin has waited a long time to prove himself as front of the house manager at Cafe Belgie, but his first night in charge while Darryl, his boss, is on vacation is less than a success. The restaurant is robbed at closing time, and the Good Samaritan who foiled the robber comes with his own complications.
Robert Fortier is the county’s newest judge, and a reluctant one at that. He is well aware that a public life is not always easy, especially when your personal life makes you the target of a media frenzy. Still, Robert enjoys Sebastian’s company, and Sebastian is never without a serving of happiness and flair for his favorite public figure. But Sebastian is not without his issues either - family chaos and an ex in trouble will put the pressure on as they struggle for even footing in this new romance.

while the narrator was good, the storyline was not enough to make this listen more than "just okay". If you are looking for a read which keeps your interest and has you wondering what will happen next then this is not it!
Although I thoroughly enjoyed a 'Serving of Love' – some of Andrew Grey's other writings (the 'love means...' Series) a bit more. Overall, a good read!
This was my first time listening to this narrator. It took me a while to warm up to him… But once I did, I found that I enjoyed the story more & more.
I loved that Andrew Grey wrote a current story - which allowed me to relate to the characters well. He's a good author & I look forward to reading more selections by him.
The story isn't as engaging as the others by Andrew Grey. The emotions of the characters didn't feel genuine and the entire romance was too fast. There wasn't enough time (calendar-wise) for the internal struggles of a guy coming out of the closet and dealing with public life.
The story makes a point of Robert's height and then doesn't use it in anyway. It notes Gregory's illness, but that moves from mild to severe too quickly to be able to identify with him or others nearby.
And the love scenes don't feel realistic, especially for a first love.
The entire performance felt like someone had cut out fractions of the seconds, or was playing it at 1.25. Without the worded cue (Robert said, Billy said, etc...) the characters were indistinguishable.
Overall, like the author's works, but this one felt flat.
"Good light reading"
Exactly what I was expecting. Good, light reading. The story can be more realistic but it is pleasant enough. Money well spent.
