One month before the annual firemen’s charity auction, fireman Wade Hartman announces he’s gay. This year when he strolls down the catwalk, he wants to leave with a man. When the only bid he receives is a pity bid, Wade’s crushed, but he lets his friend take him to dinner anyway.
Real estate conglomerate, Jared Kessler’s loved Wade for years. So when he reads the article about the fireman’s charity event, he knows he has to be the winning bidder. Mistaken as an unwanted bidder, Jared refuses to give up. He wants Wade, if only for one night.
One innocent dinner turns into fiery passion. But one night isn’t enough for Wade. He wants Jared for real. The more Wade pushes, the closer he comes to discovering the deep, dark secrets of Jared’s past. Can love conquer Jared’s fears or are his wounds too deep for even love?

I bought this based on the blurb and thought the premise was a good one. I was a bit disappointed on all fronts. My first impression was of the production value. Not being produced by one of the major houses may have had something to do with that. The background had a tinny, echoing quality that is apparent in the very beginning. I guess the monotonous narrative and inconsistent story line helped me forget about it though. The characters Wade and Jared could have had so much more depth. The backstories of both
needed to be fleshed out more for any type of understanding. The narrator sounded as though he was just doing this for a paycheck - and not a substantial one at that. The ending was much too abrupt and left me with more questions than answers. I won't be seeking more from this author or this narrator. The plus side is that I paid less for the audio version than the ebook.
