A Book in the Home Series
Do you believe in love at first sight? Jonathan does: The moment he glimpsed the striking David from afar, he was hooked, but David disappeared before they could meet.
More than three years later, Jonathan gets a second chance - he and David finally meet face to face, and the two fall into a passionate love affair. David turns Jonathan’s previously lonely life into a fairy tale, giving him more than he ever imagined.
But the past few years have been hard for Jonathan, and he’s terrified that his young son and scandalous past will be too much for David. If they’re going to build a future together, they’re both going to have to dig deep: David for the courage to share himself in a way he’s never considered…and Jonathan for the strength to tell the truth.

Yes. It's a feel good story for times when you want lite and loving with few,if any complications.
When Jonathan introduces Sam to David.
Mr. Morey grew on me and now when I listen to Cardeno, he's who I expect to hear.
Jonathan. I loved his open and honest way of dealing with life - mistakes and all.
This was another non-stop listen. Cardeno C. writes very emotional prose. There were a few too many sex scenes for my taste, but the overall story was so very good and so extremely touching, that they can be tolerated. I listened whilst driving, and I can only imagine what other drivers might have thought seeing me laughing so hard, or crying so hard, depending on the part of the story being told. Paul Morey does a great job of reading to impart the emotional feeling of the text. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Another good book in the series. Not my favorite, but worth the money. You have to listen to the whole series!
The story itself!
He is great with the voices. He very rarely dissappoints.
The time when David finds out about Jonathan's past! Not as much laughing in this one compared to the second on, but loved it
Going it to a book called "Love at First Sight" I was looking for sappy and this delivered. I thought that Paul Morey did a better job with this reading than other readings of Cardeno C.'s books that I have listened to, or at least his reading was more to my tastes than the other ones. I liked this reading better because I enjoyed the voices he created for the characters a bit more. The story itself was one that I enjoyed not only for the sap but because I liked the character of Jonathan especially. He is lost as anything and he needs to learn some assertive communication skills, especially in the beginning of the book, but I appreciate a character in a romance who is far from angsty. I also felt that the addition of Sam was cute in the story. This book (like everything I've read by Cardeno C.) is mostly a good choice for people who love to hear stories about unrealistically played out, syrupy sweet, and co-dependent romantic relationships. So if that isn't what you are looking for then I would pass on this one, but if you like that kind of thing than this might be worth your while.
more realistic, the interactions are not real based and probably aimed for gay men in their teens
less boring, more captivating
I felt although he is great, didn't feel he was a great match with this story
the unrealistic family members of Jonathan ... especially when he came out
I don't want to offend no insult Cardeno's creative process and art work. I was really hoping to dive in the story, it is just not realistic, not fun, everything seemed perfect in a boring way. I had to stop a little before the half point.
