Publisher's Summary

When college student Jake is left for dead on the side of the road, he has one thing on his mind: Learn to defend himself against the men who gay-bashed him.

And fight back or die trying.

At his sister's suggestion, he tries self-defense courses. Little does he know when he asks the man to teach him, he'll be guarding more than his body, he'll be guarding his heart.

Aspiring MMA trainer Benjamin is on his last leg, literally. As a wounded warrior, he's scarred from a broken heart that has nearly broken his spirit. So when Jake approaches him for lessons and tells him his story, it touches his heart. The more time Jake and Benjamin spend together, the more they realize they're becoming best friends. The more time they spend together, the more they realize they can't live without each other. The more time they spend together, the more they realize they're falling in love. But Jake has a secret, one that could change everything....

They're step-brothers.

Horrible. Narrator is soooo wrong for this book

Where do I start. The story is so dry and written for grade schoolers. When the main character refers to the hot guys butt as a rear end it's so not for adults. This book could be hot if you gave it a major rewrite and dumped the narrator.
The narrator grates on your last nerve before the first chapter is over. I CANT STAND THE NARRATION any Longer.
Do not under any circumstances buy this book.
I want my money back. Terrible narration and storyline.

OH MY GAWD!!! SIMPLY AWFUL!!!

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

NOBODY will enjoy this book, unless you enjoy having a hot erotic gay novel read to you by your hoarse craggy-voiced old uncle. I couldn't go past the first chapter, because you guys SOOOO picked the wrong narrator....an 85 year old guy reading a story of young gay men---NO WAY---- I want a refund!!!!

What do you think your next listen will be?

anything that does not include this narrator

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of James Talbot?

anyone under the age of 30

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

COMPLETE disappointment....horrific choice of narrator

Any additional comments?

I WANT MY MONEY BACK!!!! maybe the story is good- I wouldn't know... I could not get past the first chapter because of Grampaw's poor reading skills....YUCK!!
