Publisher's summary

Book two in the Thomas Elkin series

When some lines blur, others become crystal clear.

Absolutely smitten, Thomas Elkin and Cooper Jones have decided they're prepared to give a relationship a try.

What they're not prepared for is the reaction from their families, who try to force them apart. Both men are about to learn that there are lines that define us. Sometimes the lines blur, sometimes the lines become crystal clear.

Perfection

This series has always been my go-to reread. My annual Christmas to New Year's read. It's always been comforting, wrapping my heart in warmth, giving me a laugh. I didn't think I could love it any more, but Nick J. Russo has just added a new dimension to Tom and Cooper's story and it's perfection. I am in awe. I have never teared up when reading, especially this middle book in the series, but the narration was just so spot-on and full of life, love and emotion. If I could give this audio book a zillion stars, I would.

Clarity of Lines

I can’t believe I’ve never reviewed these audiobooks. I love this series and couldn’t say how many times I’ve listened to them. It’s a lot. The narrator does a great job. And this is one of the best age gap stories!

OMG...It's a Cooper Jones Thing!

Adding Audio for January 2021

Nick J. Russo did a fantastic job of capturing the attitude of both characters in this series. Listening to it again after reading it years ago just made me love it and these characters even more.

Original Review from 2015
I honestly can't remember the last time I read a book where I had a big goofy grin on my face for 85% of the book...which is exactly what happened with this book.

Let it be known that I ABSOLUTELY F&%KING LOVE COOPER JONES. It is definitely a Cooper Jones thing. He is just as confident and smug and snarky in this book as book 1 but we get to see a bit of vulnerability out of him in this one that just solidifies what an amazing young man he is. And his love for Tom just makes you love him all the more.

And tom was even better in this book as well. He showed his vulnerability which made him more human and loveable. His need for Cooper is tangible and just so perfect.

This is an absolutely perfect follow-up to book 1 and prelude to book 3!

Love this series

I am loving this series. Even though the books are short and story is simple without twists or big surprises, it's very interesting. Narrator did an amazing job and made this lovely story into perfect listening experience.

Fantastic

Heartwarming . Humorous. Hot. perfectly describes book two in the Thomas Elkin Series.

Nick J Russo brings Thomas and Cooper, the heroes, to life. His vividly , emotionally and sexy narration and characters portrayal was entertaining and mesmerizing. He made me laugh , cry , mad , hot and bothered and everything in between.

Written in a positive and hopeful tone , where common sense prevails , conflicts are resolved with adult conversation and not with OTT drama and love is the driving force of the story , makes Clarity of Lines a highly satisfying and romantic listening experience.

Very emotional book!

In Clarity of Lines, book 2 in the series, Tom and Cooper are working apart now, but their relationship couldn't be more serious and now they're both ready to share it with their respective families, which might not work as well as they'd hoped. 

I adored this book, it was the more emotional of the three. I cried so much in the second half of the book, but it only showed me how much Tom and Cooper belonged together and how perfect they were for each other, despite their age difference. I loved that even if their families weren't all in favor with their relationship, this was such a non-issue for them. They were together and they wouldn't let anyone interfere in their relationship, standing up to anyone who tried and they both dropped everything to be with each other when they were needed, especially Cooper there in the end. 

Nick J. Russo did a fabulous work again with these characters, giving us a very emotional narration of this amazing story. 

Very recommendable!

Cooper & Tom

Clarity of Lines

The Thomas Elkin series remains one of my very favorite series. It’s my go-to comfort re-read (and re-listen), one of my most recommended series for someone new to the author, or who loves a wonderful age-gap story. I absolutely adore Cooper and Tom! Picking up in the second book of the series, follows Copper and Tom being able to be open about their relationship. I love how each of them bend their ways to accommodate each other, sometimes self-consciously, sometimes not. I love Tom’s staunch supporter of Cooper and how he handled the situation with Cooper’s parents at their official meeting. The way that Cooper in turn took care of Tom when he needed him most, made my heart ache. This narration pulls you so much into Cooper and Tom, I couldn’t imagine another narrator telling this story. Nick J Russo does such an amazing job with what is very much a reader favorite, and I can’t help the smile that comes to my face when I hear him bring these amazing words to life! I can’t wait to get started on yet another listen of the final book of this series!

Absolutely amazing!!!

Tom and Cooper have been dating for six weeks and it’s time to let their families know. Well Ryan, Tom’s son knows but there is the scorned ex-wife and two sets of parents to let in on their relationship. And none of them are particularly happy about their relationship. So it’s no wonder that emotions run high in this book.

What I really, really loved was how Tom and Cooper stood beside each other through it all. They never faltered, there was no drama between them. Don’t get me wrong, there was plenty of drama going around, but not between our two guys. They just continued to love each other, continued to banter and in general kept moving forward.

I think I might have said this for the first book and if I didn’t I should have; but Nick J. Russo was born to narrate this series. It was made for him to narrate. In sort, it was perfect. He captured both Tom and Cooper perfectly. Cooper’s impishness and playfulness – not to mention his horniness was spot on, just like Tom’s new-found happiness over Cooper and the life he has now.

Another thing that he truly perfects is their age difference. Many narrators have problems narrating that kind of difference and still make both credible, Russo does it seamlessly and perfectly. His narration is so vivid that you see them both before you, hear their banter but more importantly see and feel the love they both share.

Clarity of Lines was fun, sweet and sexy. You will smile, laugh, possibly rage and shed a tear. But most of all, your heart will melt from all of the love that’s so present in this book.
