Seattle Stories: Book Two
Nearly a year after being rejected for another man, Seattle paramedic Peter Morse is still pining, so when the one that got away asks him for a favor, he agrees. His mission: Track down Sean Reid, the runaway brother of a mutual friend. Peter isn't thrilled about it-until he finds Sean injured by the side of the road.
Everything about Sean stirs Peter's protective instincts-saving people is what he lives for-but he never anticipated falling for someone so hell-bent on running away. On top of his physical wounds, Sean struggles with grief and guilt, and the mess his estranged father left when he died threatens to overwhelm him.
Saving Sean means Peter must let go of his pride and turn to friends and family. Asking for help is a bitter pill for Peter to swallow, but if he can't, how can he expect Sean to accept his help-and his love-in turn?

Like the first book, this was a confusing listen. I read the first book in this series in written form and had a hard time following it because this author REALLY likes the flashback writing style. It was really annoying in written form. Now imagine that same style in audio form. I took a chance that I could follow this story in audio because I really wanted Peter's story. Bad move. Although the narrator did a good job, I had to concentrate so hard on following the story with all the flashback sequences that I really didn't enjoy it. In addition, the plot was really not very good.
Great series of books. Loved the first book more, once I'd been through the second. Rather than finding the book confusing, I loved the interpersonal relationships and extensions of the smaller plot lines from the first book. Here's hoping for more.
After Ben still is #1. Don't get me wrong, the writing is superb, but there are moments of tedium. Peter's "EMT" approach to life gets boorish, but he has a wonderful heart. Sean is an odd character to be sure, the oddest of the 2 books so far in the series, but has his own allures. Narration is perfect, as one would expect of Handler.
