Publisher's Summary

Noah thinks he's nothing special. Average height, a bit on the skinny side, and cute but rather geeky, he's relentlessly ordinary. He certainly doesn't expect to be noticed by Sol, the gorgeous, dark-haired stranger Noah sees on his commute home most days. But when Noah's friend, Dom, persuades Noah to take a huge risk in a bid to get Sol's attention, things turn out better than Noah dared to hope. Noah and Sol start dating, and much to Noah's surprise, his feelings seem to be reciprocated.

But Noah's insecurities make him doubt Sol. He doesn't believe he's interesting enough or sexy enough to hold Sol's attention, and as Sol tries to get closer, Noah's instinct is to pull away to protect himself. If their relationship is going to survive, Sol needs to convince Noah that he sees Noah very differently than Noah sees himself. Because to Sol, Noah is something very special indeed.

    "Sol & Noah's story is well done."

    The characters have depth, you totally fall for Sol and Noah is so sweetly shy and insecure. However, he is still a man, just with feels. I enjoyed reading an actual storyline with appropriate storyline time elapse. Oh, and hot m/m action.

    Story
    "Not a story to listen to in the car."

    Decent story, but the narration leaves something to be desired.
    The difference in volume between the dialog and the directional narration is pretty vast.
    You turn the volume up to listen to a conversation between the characters and then you're being yelled at when the narrator is informing you what is physically happening.

    Story
    "I love this Series!"

    Noah is a shy guy, a little low on self-esteem, but knows something good when he sees it.

    Sol, named after the sun, is as hot as all that, but, surprisingly, a super-sweet guy, too.

    Noah sees Sol day after day on the train and one day Noah gets brave enough to ask Sol out and, wonder of wonders, Sol agrees! The two end up on the longest first date ever and with very little fanfare, find themselves in a relationship.
    This is not a book full of angst or mystery. It is just so stinking fun, touching, nice and sexy… I loved it. It was like eating a bowl of ice cream on a hot afternoon. Tasty, sweet, and leaving you feeling happy you took the time out to appreciate it.

    I absolutely loved that Noah, though amazed at his good fortune, almost never lets his self-esteem issues get in between him and Sol. I loved how the families were not the problem, or society. Instead it was just two guys, genuinely caring for each other, navigating the first days of a romance and taking it all the way to their happy ever after. I LOVED the ending. LOVED IT!

    Jay Northcote’s writing is crisp and well-paced. The editing is perfect and the over all effect is a very tight, happy, well-done novel.



    Audio

    Matthew Lloyd Davies has done several Jay Northcote titles now and he has a very nice, respectable British way about him. In general I like his narrations and think he does a nice job handling the emotional aspects of the storylines. In this case he doesn’t make a huge distinction between Sol and Noah, but you can tell who is who. I liked this narration better than some, and thought he did a great job of illustrating how sweet the guys were with one another, especially the epilogue!
