Dawson Barnes recognizes his world is very small and very charmed.

His father adores him, Benji would die for him, and Dawson never doubted the safety net of his family, even when life hit him below the belt. But nothing prepared him for falling on Jared Emory's head.

Publisher's Summary

Dawson Barnes recognizes his world is very small and very charmed. Running his community college theater like a petty god, he and his best friend, Benji, know they'll succeed as stage techs after graduation. His father adores him, Benji would die for him, and Dawson never doubted the safety net of his family, even when life hit him below the belt.

But nothing prepared him for falling on Jared Emory's head.

Aloof dance superstar Jared is a sweet, vulnerable man and Dawson's life suits him like a fitted ballet slipper. They forge a long-distance romance from their love of the theater and the magic of Denny's. At first it's perfect: Dawson gets periodic visits and nookie from a gorgeous man who "gets" him - and Jared gets respite from the ultra-competitive world of dancing that almost consumed him.

That is until Jared shows up sick and desperate and Dawson finally sees the distance between them concealed painful things Jared kept inside. If he doesn't grow up - and fast - his "superstar" might not survive his own weaknesses. That would be a shame, because the real, fragile Jared that Dawson sees behind the curtain is the person he can see spending his life with.

    "Just OK"

    This is not one of my favorite Amy Lane books, but it was still a good read/listen. It starts out really slow and was kind of boring in the first half of the book. It picked up a bit in the second half. This is primarily about the relationship between Dawson and Jared; but there are sub stories about the Scooby Gang of Dawson’s friends and his best friend Benji. Dawson starts as a stumbling nerd awed by Jared, who is a famous dancer. They embark on trying a long distance relationship and as the story progresses and their relationship grows, they discover a lot about themselves and what it means to have a relationship. That said, I’m afraid I really didn’t connect with this couple, I don’t know why, I just didn’t. I rooted for them, but I was just “whatever” about the HEA. The narrator does a decent job, but there really wasn’t a lot of diversity in the voices. Overall probably worth a credit as a comfort read.
