Publisher's Summary

Against a backdrop of '80s new wave songs and the landscapes of London and Seattle, a young actor in the modern day tackles his bisexuality as he finds himself falling for his best friend.

It's an inconvenient time for Sinter Blackwell to realize he's bisexual. He's a 25-year-old American actor working in London, living far away from his disapproving parents in the Pacific Northwest, and enjoying a flirtation with his director Fiona. But he can't deny that his favorite parts of each day are the messages from his gay best friend Andy in Seattle - whom Sinter once kissed when they were 15.

Finally, he decides to return to America to visit Andy and discover what's between them, if anything. He isn't seeking love, and definitely doesn't want drama. But both love and drama seem determined to find him. Family complications soon force him into the most consequential decisions of his life, threatening all his most important relationships: with Andy, Fiona, his parents, and everyone else who's counting on him. Choosing the right role to play has never been harder.

Good overall story, lovely tear inducing ending

I really enjoyed the story. The performance could have been better. The narrator had a bit too much of a “Bro” sounding voice for my taste, but I got used to it and by the end it was a bit more balanced. He seemed to do better with the other characters voices then the main. The story was great though. And as a gay man I could relate, and definitely teared up at the ending. Definitely give it a listen if you want to hear a fairly realistic LGBT love story with a good amount of twists and turns.

Too Much Angst

These two have terrible communication skills and it leads to angst. Then both have life changing decisions to make, which leads to angst. 99% of the book is angst! By the end I wasn't even sure if I could finish the thing but finally they get their heads out of their asses and find their HEA, though it seems a bit rushed just to finish the story.
