Connor loves teaching. He loves working with kids, he loves feeling like he's making a difference. And the kids - and parents - seem to love him. Until the afternoon he makes a small error in judgment, and an angry father's thoughtless comments start the kind of rumor that destroys careers. And lives.
Everything Connor thought he knew about himself and his world is now in doubt. But sometimes help comes from the most unexpected direction.

Who wrote this? Really. Tepid characters, no world building, no atmosphere, none of the beautiful prose for which Lanyon is known. The storyline was mediocrity personified. Thank goodness it was short story; so disappointing. One saving grace... Michael Ferraiuolo was a wonderful narrator.
I mostly love Josh L's audiobooks. She has a way of building love through everyday drama, as well as through the art of mystery and suspense. This is a contemporary romance - no crime drama or mystery involved here. Just an everyday type of drama that regular people deal with in the real world.
The narration is professional and entertaining. I had a bit of an issue with the plot holes. There were a few things that bugged me, and I felt like I wanted to argue with the story at times. I am not going to go into details because I would spoil things with too many specifics.
And here's a weird thing - I felt like Wes should have been the name for Conner's character, and Con should have been the name for Wes's character - I kept getting them mixed up. Thankfully the narrator was good enough to do the voices differently and consistently. Their names just didn't fit who they were. So weird to say, I know.
I also thought that Wes's character could have been developed more. Because he was kind of a dick to Con, and his motivations may have been solid, but the reader didn't see that really.
I am glad I listened to it and for the most part I was well entertained.
