Publisher's Summary

Logan Crane’s life changed dramatically the day a blind fit of temper resulted in him accidentally injuring his wife. Although he’s now in an abuser counseling program, Logan cannot face the real source of his unhappiness: He’s always been attracted to men but has refused to accept it since witnessing an act of violence.

During his therapy, Logan meets Nick Zales, a counselor at a shelter for victims of domestic violence. Nick is understandably suspicious of Logan despite an immediate attraction to him. Logan feels the same attraction and faces a critical internal struggle as he finds himself falling in love with this enigmatic man. Both men are haunted by unacknowledged ghosts and abuse in their pasts. How can they help each other heal if they continue to ignore their own wounds?

    "Satisfying romance and a less-travelled setting"

    I found this romance one of the better m/m offerings this year. The two main characters were well-differentiated and rather believable, and the supporting cast was interesting and believable. I also enjoyed the fact that the angts delaying the romance, based in anger-management and self-esteem issues, was credibly portrayed. I found the therapy sessions well-written and the character's slow self-awareness well laid out. The setting, somewhat mundane and working class, was also a welcome break from the jet-set model meets millionaire trope that seems so common to romance novels these days.

    The novel begs for a sequel (not that it ends on a cliff-hanger) because there are some issues left unresolved, in particular familial relationships to work through.

    If possible, I would have given 4.5 stars. The audio performance was also quite good and did honour to the quality of the written material.

    "Pleasant Diversion"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This was a nice book to listen to, kept my attention. The characters were believable and interesting. I kept wondering where/how Felicia did her research for this book. A few weeks after listening I found myself at the point in Pittsburg - it's still under construction.

    "Well-written and excellent storyline"

    When I first started to listen to this story I was a little skeptical about the storyline and characters because I was not all to sure that I would be able to like one of the main character who had been an abuser - I mean normally they are the bad guys in the stories? But surprisingly this is actually a very sweet story and I enjoyed listening. It is a little different than most M/M romances by having a more serious storyline but it still makes my top 10. Narrator is fine.

    "An unexpected storyline, but very good"

    It took me a long time to get over exactly how the story begins. It is an enjoyable listen, and I really enjoy Jeff Gelder's narrations. The book is definitely worth the time and money.

    "Good story, OK narrations"

    Overall rating 3.5 rounded up. This is a very engaging story of anger, abuse and not being true to yourself. The story is really good and kept me engaged. Nick and Logan are very realistically portrayed and the story deals with some very real issues of domestic violence. The narrator was OK, not painful to listen to. But Jeff Gelder continues to be a little wooden, although this was much better than some of his past books. He had some diversity in the characters and at times puts emotion into his storytelling. I think it is his "pacing" of the story that doesn't quite flow. Sometimes it sounds like he is just "reading" it, which I could do without purchasing an audiobook. It is too bad because he as a great voice.
