Leo Ware may be young, but he knows what he wants. And what he wants is Will Highland. Snarky, sophisticated, fiercely opinionated Will Highland, who burst into Leo's unremarkable life like a supernova...and then was gone just as quickly.
For the past miserable year, Leo hasn't been able to stop thinking about the powerful connection he and Will shared. So, when Leo moves to New York for college, he sweeps back into Will's life, hopeful that they can pick up where they left off. What begins as a unique friendship soon burns with chemistry they can't deny...though Will certainly tries.
But Leo longs for more than friendship and hot sex. A romantic to his core, Leo wants passion, love, commitment - everything Will isn't interested in giving. Will thinks romance is a cheesy fairy tale and love is overrated. He likes his space and he's happy with things just the way they are, thank you very much. Or is he? Because as he and Leo get more and more tangled up in each other's lives, Will begins to act like maybe love is something he could feel after all.

I'm an unabashed fiction fan: mostly M/M, Romance, Erotica, Suspense, Thrillers, Action, NA/YA genres.
5 Stars for the narration!
Spencer Goss is definitely on my immediate buy list. The way he uses inflection to convey the emotion of the story, his character voices, his timing, voice over…all of it is simply stunning for someone who’s so new to voice acting, and frankly would be remarkable for a veteran actor.
I adored the audio for this. Goss has a way of taking the almost lyrical quality of Roan Parrish’s writing and elevating it to something that is irresistibly enchanting.
The writing is on par with the other stories in the series, and Parrish certainly delivers the heat (eventually) as well.
But, once again, I find myself wishing for multiple POV and wishing I bought into the relationship side of the story more, which is where my focus was on. The whole coming of age drama, which is most of the story, just didn’t really strike a resounding chord with me. I understand this is ultimately about Leo’s growth. I just didn’t need to read so much about his classes, and friends, and boss, and yoga.
While my overall issues with the story remain, the narration for this was simply fantastic! I think those who love New Adult coming of age stories with a sprinkling of relationship angst, some sexy times, and a HFN that holds a glimmer of possibility for more should definitely check it out.
I listened to all three book and I like the first one and the last one. I also readied a review on the last one ,and the person was not please with Leo Leo is young and in love and new to love and will had problems of his own but the work it out . Listen to this book you have to put your self in a young person mind about love and new experience great job to the writer and narrative
I've enjoyed the first two books in this series even though their story lines are quite a bit alike. I'm delightfully surprised that the author breaks away completely from the insecurities of the first two books. The MCs are both quite confident and well developed through this interesting & original story. It was worth a credit to me.
Gah! This story was as emotional as Out Of Nowhere (also by this author), and I was on the same kind of emotional rollercoaster he sent me on in THAT one. By that I mean the highs and the lows for the main characters were intense and powerful. The narrator has a way of making things both realistic and gut-punchingly affecting. As with the last book in this series, done by this narrator, he made it seem like I was listening to a ten hour long movie, rather than a book.
I highly recommend this audiobook.
