How do you save a drowning man when that drowning man is you?
Jake Moore's world fits too tightly around him. Every penny he makes as a welder goes to care for his dying father, an abusive, controlling man who's the only family Jake has left. Because of a promise to his dead mother, Jake resists his desire for other men, but it leaves him consumed by darkness.
It takes all of Dallas Yates's imagination to see the possibilities in the fatigued art deco building on WeHo's outskirts, but what seals the deal is a shy smile from the handsome metal worker across the street. Their friendship deepens while Dallas peels back the hardened layers strangling Jake's soul. It's easy to love the sweet, artistic man hidden behind Jake's shattered exterior, but Dallas knows Jake needs to first learn to love himself.
When Jake's world crumbles, he reaches for Dallas, the man he's learned to lean on. It's only a matter of time before he's left to drift in a life he never wanted to lead and while he wants more, Jake's past haunts him, making him doubt he's worth the love Dallas is so desperate to give him.

I really enjoyed seeing how Jake evolved as a person, in his view of himself and his self worth.
Jake, he was a very troubled soul when the book first started but overcame much by the end.
I have listened to MANY books narrated by the very talented Greg Tremblay. This is another superb performance, although I think the voice he used for Dallas might've been slightly feminine.
yes, it's always a hard choice, to savor so it lasts a bit longer or "more, more, more"
There are many secondary characters in this book that are well described & memorable, like Dallas' family & Jake's boss. Would love to see a sequel where Celeste gets a HEA.
Just a warning, this is not a light & fluffy romance novel. There are some dark moments, angst & a dead guy (it is a Rhys Ford book after all) but it does have a HEA.
What can I say? This book was heartbreakingly beautiful. I hope we get more of these characters from Rhys and I hope they're brought to life once again by Greg Tremblay. Loved it!
Rhys Ford has never disappointed me with her books and Greg Trembley makes the charactors do much more sexy! i recommend all her books!
"Another Wonderful collaboration."
This was a good read in Ebook, well an excellent read actually! But add in Greg Tremblay's fabulous voices and emotional intonations and you have a work of art to match the work Jake would do.
