Publisher's Summary

After his boyfriend dumps him, Hayden is in need of a place to live. Thanks to his buddies, he has a great lead to room with a guy named Cody in Metropolis, the hottest condominium in town. But things get a little uncomfortable when Hayden shows up for the interview and discovers he and Cody share an awkward up close and personal experience from their past.

Cody doesn't have a problem living with Hayden. He's had his share of help when he was down and out, and he wants to do the same for this guy. It's not long until Cody realizes how great it is having someone around. Sometimes, they watch movies together...and other times, they help get each other off - one of the perks of living with a guy who's as laid back about sex as he is. They hit it off so well Cody even decides to act as wingman for Hayden while he gets used to hitting the town again.

Before they know it, they're spending more time with each other than with anyone else. But Hayden just got out of a relationship and should be spending his nights having fun and working it around town, not jumping into something serious again. Cody's always just gone with the flow, believing if it's meant to happen, it will. But life doesn't always work that way, and if they don't fight for what's right in front of them, Hayden and Cody might be over before they have the chance to even get started.

Hot story

I liked the way the story flowed as well as the character construction. The story flowed very well also. Plan to get the next in this series too.

I liked the narration also.

Love Is

In this case love is a 4 letter word and that word is Cody. Uber cool, sexy, nothing can touch me Cody who finds his match in the quiet and unassuming Hayden.

If you have read the first book (which if you have not you totally should) you will recognize Cody and Hayden as Gary and Travis' friends. Hayden is coming off a heartbreaking break up and it is my humble opinion that his ex, named Lance, is very possibly the best written villain in M/M romance cuz boy do you hate this utter and complete douche nozzle. More than once I was mentally screaming at Hayden, dude you are soooo much better off without this dude..anyway I digress.

When Cody offers to let Hayden move in with him things start to get interesting and you just want them to work because they are just so good together but they are both scared and the fear is palpable and understandable and frustrating as heck.

But that you come to care for these characters is the point of all of this, that is a mark of good writing and Michael's delivery is spot on (as usual). So totally worth a read and a listen!

A- rating...

My Review:
Overall: 4.25
Performance: 4.0
Story: 4.25


I really enjoyed this story. Hayden is just out of a relationship that really did a number on him and he's moving in with Cody. Cody is absolutely the best person to take Hayden under his wing. Cody's one of those guys...he's sweet and protective and quickly sees that Hayden is messed up. Cody makes it his goal to pull Hayden out of his shell and out of his funk...and in the process gets so much more than he ever planned for.

Like I said, I really enjoyed this one. The main issue I had with the first book was the gay party atmosphere of the Metropolis. That seemed toned down in this book and I enjoyed it so much more as a result. This story instead focused on these two guys and how their relationship and friendship evolves. I enjoyed all of that.

Also, this is really a friends with benefits relationship, so it checked a lot of tropes for me that I loved. I love it when friends fall in love. I also love getting to see a character come into theirselves...that was Hayden to the core.

It was fun and entertaining and I definitely recommend it. I was waffling on book #3 because of the whole "daddy" trope which does NOT do it for me. But there's a glimpse of Jackson at the end of this book and I caved. On to book #3 in the series. I'm crossing my fingers.

Note: I really do enjoy Michael Pauley's narration, too. He has great inflections and emotions. That being said, though, there were a couple of points in this story where the two main character voices seemed to get a little lost and I wasn't sure which one was speaking. It was a really minor thing, but something I noticed especially in the chapter transitions.

First book was better

Story started to drag in the last half of the book. Narration was excellent. Weird skip in the audio in Chapter 30.

LOL!

Although I enjoy the main story the background characters are what seem to be the best in this one. Cody and Travis had great chemistry and I enjoyed their moments together and Coors Derek had me laughing out loud. all-in-all I enjoyed it but definitely like the other two better than this one.

Laughed a lot - not too much angst.

Any additional comments?

Great new series

Loved this book and the first one. Look forward to the 3rd. Devon and Riley are great writers. The narrator was perfect for the story in both novels. Patiently waiting for Owning It.

The narrator

The story itself is nice but I can't get over how bad the narrator was. He gets overly excited while reading some lines to the point that I feel confused and irritated. I mean he's moaning while reading some stupid text messages, I can't see why he needs to convey that much excitement over them. He also does a very bad job of voicing out different characters. Every single character sounds the same.
