Angel Daniels grew up hard, one step ahead of the law and always looking over his shoulder. A grifter's son, he'd learned every con and trick in the book but ached for a normal life. Once out on his own, Angel returns to Half Moon Bay where he once found...and then lost...love.
Now, Angel's life is a frantic mess of schedules and chaos. Between running his bakery and raising his troubled 11-year-old half-brother, Roman, Angel has a hectic but happy life. Then West Harris returns to Half Moon Bay and threatens to break Angel all over again by taking away the only home he and Roman ever had.
When they were young, Angel taught West how to love and laugh, but when Angel moved on, West locked his heart up and threw away the key. Older and hardened, West returns to Half Moon Bay and finds himself face-to-face with the man he'd lost. Now West is torn between killing Angel or holding him tight.
But rekindling their passionate relationship is jeopardized as someone wants one or both of them dead, and as the terrifying danger mounts, neither man knows if the menace will bring them together or forever tear them apart.

I'm an unabashed fiction fan: mostly M/M, Romance, Erotica, Suspense, Thrillers, Action, NA/YA genres.
So, I’m not going to lie to you – when I first read this high-octane paced story, I kept imagining how Spencer Goss would narrate it. I’d completely fallen head over heals for his narration of the Fish Stick Fridays and was eagerly awaiting Hanging the Stars to hear what he’d do. Alas, it wasn’t to be. Spencer Goss did not return for the sequel. Instead, Greg Tremblay stepped into the Half Moon Bay shoes and set about bringing West and Angel to life.
No worries, fans, because Tremblay, as usual, does a fantastic job. This was absolutely, thoroughly enjoyable!
I absolutely loved Tremblay’s character voices for everyone, but most of all for Angel and West.
If you’re looking for a sweet, low angst romance with some mystery, look elsewhere. This is a full on, lock your seatbelt, grab the oh-sh** bar, and hold on kind of mystery romance.
This story is like a shot of pure adrenaline. It’s fun and frantic read, with a super fast pace, and likable characters, including the introduction of Marzo and Justin.
I loved the way Tremblay’s able to convey the breakneck pacing of the story, without it being frenzied to listen to. I don’t mean he literally slowed it down, I mean they way he conveyed the action so that it flowed brilliantly without it being manic.
I love Greg Tremblay’s voice acting. And it’s a little bit of magic every time he takes one of Rhy’s stories and brings it to life. This is no exception.
Rhys did it again! She is the MASTER at giving us amazingly lovable men who are broken, but not beyond repair, and giving them someone to love. Plus a funny kid!
Just as with book one, there is the added element of danger and our heroes are under siege pretty much right from the start. (Rhys makes these guys EARN their reward!). Also like book one there’s a great kid, Roman, who keeps everyone on their toes but also breaks your heart at every turn.
Normally I’m not a big fan of “reunion” romances. I really love the first blush of a new romance. But these guys, since they’ve got history, are able to dive head first back into the thick of things – giving us their relationship building right from the start.
It was also great seeing Zig, Deacon and Lang again – Zig and Lang and West are HYSTERICAL together.
So… for fans of the author, the series, reunion romances, stories with kids, sweet and hot romances – pretty much anybody! – this is for you!
Greg Tremblay is so good. Just. So. Good. I know it was a bit disconcerting to switch narrators - and I don't know why that happened, but I do know that Greg is not "good enough" he is AWESOME! I love listening to his narrations and I was not disappointed one bit with the switch. Highly Recommended!
I absolutely loved this book. Hands down my favorite Rhys Ford book to date. The Rhys Greg combo is batting 1000. Bravo to both of you!!!
I really enjoyed this book. Greg Tremblay always does a great job but I'm confused why Spenser Goss didn't narrate. I thought he did great on book 1.
"Not a patch on Fish Stick Fridays...."
Um, I hate to say it but I didn't think this second chances love story between West and Angel was anywhere near as good as Fish Stick Fridays, which I adored. Nothing wrong with Greg's narration, the story just wasn't as strong as FSF.
