Publisher's Summary

When college student Jake is left for dead on the side of the road, he has one thing on his mind: Learn to defend himself against the men that gay-bashed him.

And fight back or die trying.

At his sister's suggestion, he tries self-defense courses. Little does he know when he asks the man to teach him, he'll be guarding more than his body, he'll be guarding his heart.

Aspiring MMA trainer Benjamin is on his last leg, literally. As a wounded warrior, he's scarred from a broken heart that has nearly broken his spirit.

So when Jake approaches him for lessons and tells him his story, it touches his heart.

The more time Jake and Benjamin spend together, the more they realize they're becoming best friends.

The more time they spend together, the more they realize they can't live without each other.

The more time they spend together, the more they realize they're falling in love.

But Jake has a secret, one that could change everything....

They're step-brothers.

    Any additional comments?

    This is the thing, the main character is in college and the narrator sounded like he was in his 60's.

    So, the narration turned from mediocre to awful when he'd tried to sound young and a lot of the dialogue was a young guy speaking; a voice that sounds like an elderly speaking the dialogue of a young guy just ruined the story. 💔 And the sexy scenes definitely didn't work AT FREAKIN ALL!

    A younger narrator like Michael Stellman or Michael F. Would have raised the level of entertainment for this story.

    "BDSM (Dom/sub) Indecision and Sex and more Sex"

    It takes the main characters over 7 hours of narration to make a decision meanwhile still not knowing if they belong together there is chapter after chapter of highly erotic sex. If you like all sex an no story I Got You is the book for you.

    "I liked the story"

    I listened to this book and regretted spending the money. It would have been a better one to read. I liked the story but I had trouble with the narrator. Benjamin's voice sounded like a very old man. And made it hard for me to get into his character. I do have to say he did a great on the sex scenes. The actual narration parts sounded ok but the authors drew them out too much. I got frustrated a few times.

    Story
    "I Got You certainly got me"

    I Got You began with two young men who only had each other, and had found themselves on the receiving end of all the ugliness and contempt that can be directed towards members of the gay community.
    While Alberto clung to life and every moment seemed like it could be his last, Jake set himself on his path to recovery and reclaiming his life. His complicated family threw him a lifeline in the form of his older step-brother Benjamin--a man who he had never met, but one who was in a position to teach him how to defend himself. Their initial meeting sparks something in both of them that has nothing to do with family connections. The fact that Jake does not disclose that connection at the time snowballs into an emotional confession when they move forward with the physical side of their relationship.
    The combination of complicated families, loyalty to a friend, a spiteful ex-partner, and the intolerance of their hometown drives a wedge between Jake and Benjamin at a time when they are considering making a new life for themselves…together. After his initial desolation, Jake finds the strength that Benjamin and trained into him, and stands up to the very person who had visited violence and hatred on him in the opening scene of the book.
    Benjamin’s catch-phrase, I Got You, is never more true than when…ah, but that would be giving away far too much. Let me just say that I thoroughly enjoyed the journey this book took me on, would recommend it to others, and that I will be searching out more books from Jamie Lake and Jeff Rivera, and narrations by James Talbot.
