Publisher's Summary

Nothing in this world is permanent. Friends, lovers, even family can all disappear in the blink of an eye. Without these anchors, it's all too easy to find oneself drifting.

Jason Grant doesn't have much, aside from a beat-up old guitar and knack for getting kicked out of foster homes. His latest placement is set to be just another in a long line of failures. Then he meets Caesar Hubbard, a handsome guy who lives down the hall. For the first time in his life, Jason wants to stay, which means learning to be part of a family, and not letting his feelings - or his actions - ruin his first real chance of falling in love.

Something Like Spring introduces a new character to the Seasons story, one with a troubled past and an equally turbulent future. Jason must traverse a winding road fraught with emotional conflicts and tough decisions - a road that might just lead to a certain couple in Austin.

    Story
    "After Winter must come Spring..."
    What did you love best about Something Like Spring?

    Ben and Tim! Lol, I loved the plot of the story and that it introduced us to a completely new story in the series as well as expanded on Ben and Tim's story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Something Like Spring?

    Ryan shooting Tim. At first, I felt like it was unnecessary to reintroduce Ryan into the series. But, I understood that he was a catalyst for Jason realizing his feelings for Ben and Tim. I thought that Cesar was going to be the Paramedic that came to the scene to take Tim to the hospital, but that wasn't the case.


    What about Kevin R. Free’s performance did you like?

    Kevin has been consistent throughout the series.


    If you could rename Something Like Spring, what would you call it?

    I would've named this book Something Like Home. Yea, I know it's cliche but, Jason was always sort of in search of a family and home and he finally found that towards the end.


    Any additional comments?

    Throughout Spring, there was a feeling that the characters in this book sort of paralleling the characters of Summer. For instance, Jason was our Ben, Cesar was our Tim, and William was our Jace. I've always been a fan of Tim (he's my favorite character) but I did not like Cesar one bit from the beginning. Vice versa, i wasn't that much of a fan of Jace, but I loved William, especially for Jason. I feel that Jay wanted to give all of the TeamJace fans there Ben/Jace HEA even if it wasn't really them. I really enjoyed this book. It was a great way to end the series, even though I feel that there could be more to explore in Ben and Tim's new family.

    Story
    "Closure . . .sort of"

    Just amazing. So with this book we come full circle with Tim and Ben and am introduced to Jason Grant and others who will show up on future books. Jason is a wonderful young man that starts off as a jaded, but remarkably laid back, foster case for Michelle (Jace's sister). They forge a special bond as she seeks a family for him. My only issue with Jason is he just doesn't seem to know his worth and keeps just "putting up" with stuff instead of demanding what he wants. Although primarily about Jason's journey and search for love, we are treated with all our old friends from previous books. Except for Victor, thank god; I'm sorry I'm still really mad at him. But I digress. Not all the old friends are good ones and there is some drama. This book has trademark Jay Bell wonderful writing and storytelling; yes it is possible to love more than one person. But this one is a lot lighter than the previous books. Don't get me wrong, tears do flow, especially in the last 20% of the book; but they are happy tears. I so glad that Kevin R Free continues to narrate this series. He does his usual amazing job. All and all, it is Something Like Wonderful.

    "Got me again"

    After I was an emotional wreck after that damn cat Samson died I was pretty sure nothing in this series would make me tear up again. The epilogue for this book caught me off guard and got me again!

    The parts of the story that advance the core been and Tim story I enj

    "GREAT STORY! Loved seeing Ben and Tim!"
    Any additional comments?

    I love love loved seeing Ben and Tim again. In hindsight, I can't say that I am a huge fan of Jason. This story is definitely great and entertaining and I am 100% #TeamBentley-Wyman. We all have had a Cesar or two in our lives and the drama that came along with such nonsense.

    Story
    "Jay Bell has become my favorite author."

    How do you describe a series of books that tells the story from multiple viewpoints with significant junctures of the timeline of each allowing each storyline to add to the overall adventure of the characters? This is book 4 in the series, with three more to go. There is no way to ignore the the rest of the series now.

    All the books so far have been excellently reviewed and edited to remove any of the detracting errors in grammar or spelling (OK I did not check the spelling while listening to the audiobook version, but you just know it is right).

    I am glad I did buy the audiobook version, as the audio is a more powerful presentation than just reading for someone with failing eyesight and deaf in one ear. Immersion in the audio that has the right inflection of the characters' voices and clear pronunciation using different voices for each character makes the time pass too quickly and the end comes too soon. That is not meaning that it is too short, but that I want more. Good thing I have a few more credits so I can move on to number five with anxious anticipation and the shear joy that comes from a good book being absorbed by a voracious reader.

    "Loving the series"

    Different from other series, each episode in the something like series is a story of it's own, with cross over characters here and there. This makes each feel new and exciting and the sub plots extend the stories of characters you know and love from other episodes. I can't wait for the next one.

    "It should be called Something Like Love"

    The book was absolutely amazing and I got the audio book and the voices really captured what the tone of the characters, happy or sad, really conveyed. The story was absolutely amazing! Had me laughing at times and even made me shed a couple of years every now and again. Jay Bell is an amazing writer and the Something Like series is by far one of the best written book series I have ever read or listened to!

    "another wonderful bok, wonderfully read"
    Would you listen to Something Like Spring again? Why?

    yes and already have done, about 5 times


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Something Like Spring?

    the epilogue, but don't skip to it, it brings together result of the wonderful build up from the previous books


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    there is no 'one scene' it is wonderful from start to finish. it somehow intertwines with the past books in fact I went back and re-listened to the first three, and bits slotted in..if you asked me2 months ago if I would buy three books that told the same story I would laugh at you, but I did, and this forth one brings it all together..


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    this is one of those books that is constantly pulling your emotions in every direction and the epilogue had me in tears... whether good tears or not?? I'm not telling


    Any additional comments?

    all 4 of these books where made extra special due to the very talented Mr Free.. he manages to stick the 'voices to the characters' through all 4 books. I would buy and book narrated by him
