After a car accident, Adam wakes up in a hospital room with no memory and a man named Joe, who acts like his boyfriend. So when Joe says Adam is straight - and Joe's not - and they're just best friends and roommates, Adam is more than a little confused. But as Adam starts to fill in the gaps, the one thing that becomes apparent is that Joe is the missing piece that can't be replaced.

Have always loved books and I find that as I have gotten older I find this way more enjoyable then listening to the radio.
bestfriends to overs
I loved Joe, the way he was described the way he treated joe, it was so obvious his love and his feelings, I loved his family
when Joe helps adam take a bath, it's sooo sweet and romantic
Joe and abam
to know that love is real, to know that people don'y choose to be gay they are just who they are added to that the deep love the togetherness this is love, this is a family. It's a wonderful story
This was my original short thought on this book: Very cute and Joe, he was so adorable.
Edit: Re-read this and liked it just as much. After reading When Adam Kissed Me I couldn't decide who I liked more, Adam or Joe, and I still can't.
Now that I’ve listened to it – I love them both. Adam has temporary amnesia from being hit by a car. As his lifelong best friend, Joe is just horrified that he nearly lost the man. As Joe takes care of him, and as the memories start to slowly return, you get to see the love and devotion there is. Add in Joe’s extremely involved family, and no wonder Adam is a little overwhelmed.
The narrator of this story, Jeff Gelder, just did an amazing job making the emotions of Jeff and the confusion of Adam so palpable. It’s very short so it was the perfect drive to work and home story, but I will be relistening to it. And now, I SO hope When Adam Kissed Me goes to audio!
Go out and read something!
I think that Dreamspinner Press does such a wonderful job at packaging these romance/holiday theme stories. From the Advent Calendar package " Evergreen", comes the story of Adam and Joe.
Adam wakes from a car accident to find himself in the loving care of his roommate Joe. He soon realizes just how much more Joe means to him than simply a roommate.
I enjoyed the story and felt that the author did a really good job of allowing us readers/listeners to understand how hard it is to not love someone when they just might not love you back.
I hope Audible keeps putting these short stories out for us voracious listeners. These stories are packaged 'just right'.
