Three years ago, Bear McKenna’s mother took off for parts unknown with her new boyfriend, leaving Bear to raise his six-year-old brother Tyson, aka the Kid. Somehow they’ve muddled through, but since he’s totally devoted to the Kid, Bear isn’t actually doing much living. With a few exceptions, he’s retreated from the world, and he’s mostly okay with that - until Otter comes home.
Otter is Bear’s best friend’s older brother, and as they’ve done for their whole lives, Bear and Otter crash and collide in ways neither expect. This time, though, there’s nowhere to run from the depth of emotion between them. Bear still believes his place is as the Kid’s guardian, but he can’t help thinking there could be something more for him in the world ... something or someone.

Yes, I have never cried, laughed and sighed so much in a book. I have already reread and relisten to this book 3 times. Great banter in this book.
Bear, Bear and Bear
The best, one of my favorite narrators!
Yes! and it was a long day, but worth it
Best author, if you have not read this author, you are missing out!
Funny, warm, sweet.
The closeness and bond between Bear and Otter. That is what we all want in our romantic relationships, but most books seem to skip over that part and focus just on the the sex. The sex is always so much better when the intimacy is there first.
Not sure. I liked his narration, except his voice for the Kid.
I instantly loved Bear's internal dialogue. So funny,
This book was very well written. I never got bored and was always eager to pick it back up when I had to stop listening. I have listened to it three times. When I need to relax or distract myself from the stresses of life, I just listen to the story and escape into a world full of humor, love, and romance.
I enjoy audiobooks, with being on the road for work, it helps to pass the time
Good story and the narrator did a great job. I was also like Bear, coming out of the closet was not easy.
The beach seen when Bear tells Otter he loves him.
I was listening to this at work and couldn't stop laughing. An extremely touching, heartfelt and laugh inducing book. Sean Crisden is one of my favorite narrators and he once again, did a splendid job.
Wonderful narration - okay story - basically the gay flick from a few years back called Shelter in book form.
I am an avid audio book listener. I have over 340 in my library and re-listen to them until I know my favorites by heart.
This story is a tear jerker. I loved the range of emotions it evoked and that there was a happy ending.
His voice is always easy to listen to. The pronunciation is great and easy to understand. I will listen to books he narrates even if I don't know the author.
The kid stole the show. If this is ever made into a movie the kid will be the Jonathan Lipnicki (from Jerry Maguire) who steals every scene.
It's not a cheesie romance novel, it is the best romance novel I've read involving two men. Plus, you will laugh your ass off, cry at some point and get mad because you want to slap some of the characters.
Tyson (the Kid) is the best, he is so smart and funny. I laughed more than anything at the crap that came out of his mouth. He's discribed as a vegitarian echo terrorist but the smartest 9 year old you'll ever meet. Loved Loved Loved! Tyson
Liked his performance.
There was too many, just read it you'll understand
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
Boy, what a TEAR-JErker! I was ignored this book for so long, just b/c of the title... I thought, this is gonna be stupid right? WRONG! If it wasn't for Crisden narration, I would still be dodgeballing this book, but I am so glad I have become a Crisden follower.
Short summary: Bear's mom left him to raise (the kid) his brother when he was 18. His best friend and his best friend brother (Otter) provide emotional support b/c Bear won't let them help him finically. Bear and Otter kinda fall in love, but Bear push Otter away. 3 yrs later, Otter is back and him and Bear kinda of fight and fall in love again.
This is just short summary b/c so much more happen and with Crisden narration, every single emotion comes to life in like techni color...!!! The drama is just great.
Good buy or credit. I actually with more T.J. Klune's were on here. I would scoop them up, especially if Crisden narrates.
