Zach Mitchell is stuck in a rut. His college boyfriend left him 10 years ago, but Zach still lives in the same apartment, drives the same car, and feeds his ex-boyfriend’s ungrateful cat. His Denver business, A to Z Video Rental, is struggling. He has annoying customers, eccentric neighbors, and an unfulfilling romance with his landlord, Tom.
A combat boot-wearing punk with an attitude, Angelo Green was raised in foster homes and has been on his own since he was sixteen; he has never learned to trust or to love. He doesn’t do relationships, so when Angelo takes a job at A to Z Video, he decides Zach is strictly off-limits. Despite their differences, Zach and Angelo quickly become friends, and when Zach’s break-up with Tom puts his business on the line, it’s Angelo who comes up with a solution. Together with Jared and Matt, their friends from Coda, Colorado, Zach and Angelo will find a way to save A to Z, but will they be able to save each other too? (Listen to Jared and Matt's story in Promises.)

The characters seemed 3-dimensional, full of life and emotion. Love can be complicated, blind and all of the above. I thought the author portrayed the characters well. They were both frustrating and exciting. Definitely worth the listen but beware that the narrator is terrible and takes some getting used to.
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
Maybe I will finish this, maybe I won't. I am pretty bored. This seem like it has been done before...but way better. I have been listening to a lot of m/m romances lately and this is just not doing it for me. I really want get to the next story in this series... the "Strawberry one" but I want to follow the series in order, I hate listen out of order... Man O Man... this is just sooooo boring....
Narration sounds just like Promises. Good, but kinda sound just the same, so not good.
I LOVED this story. Sexton is one of my favorite authors in this genre. She gives us beautifully written love stories between 2 men with all the angst that goes with it and not more than is needed.
Anyone... No seriously, he sounded BORED reading. Paul Morey, Sean Crisden, or Sawyer Allerde would have done SOOO much better.
There are two main characters in this book but the narrator does not change his voice for them or the other few minor characters. I would have to go back to make sure the dialogue was for the correct character. Other than being annoying to listen to, I genuinely enjoyed the story.
