A book in the Home Series
Ben Forman has been in the closet so long he’s convinced himself he’s actually straight. But his denial train gets derailed when hotshot lawyer Micah Trains walks into his life. Micah is brilliant, funny, and determined.... And he just assumes Ben’s gay and starts dating him. Finding himself truly happy for the first time he can remember, Ben doesn’t have the willpower to resist.
Still, life isn’t all rainbows and happily-ever-afters. Ben loves his family, but his parents have been estranged from his brother, Noah, since he came out of the closet. Ben doesn’t want to lose them, but Micah won’t be his dirty little secret forever. Suddenly Ben’s hold on his happiness and his sense of self seems to be slipping. If he’s going to survive with his heart intact, he’ll have to own up to the truth of what he wants and who he is. The trouble is figuring out just what that truth is.

LOVED, LOVED, this story. Have listened to it twice in three days. This is by far the best work offered through Audible by Cardeno C. The writing was fantastic and the narration is some of the best that I have heard. Paul Morey was phenominal. A gambit of emotions and the smile on my face actually hurt. A continuation--of sorts--from Home Again (another good book) in that the character of Ben Foreman continued on his path of growth, discovery, and acceptance. Wanted the story to continue on and on...especially with the great characters. As earlier stated, loved this story and I think I might recommend it...maybe :-)
The narrator did a great job and living inside of Ben's head is hilarious. The things he says literally make you laugh out loud. I like this one and the story about Zach and Aaron. They are truly very funny with their POVs.
Ben is very very funny and sad in the story. I do love Micah as well.
Ok, the scene at Micah's home with his mother and trying to find out if he is Jewish or circumcised or not is probably one of the funniest scenes I have ever heard!!!
Read this book, one of my favorite in the series
A first grader could narrate with more emotion. Therefore the story was unappealing.
