Publisher's Summary

I don't know why nobody ever wanted me.

For real, I mean. My parents died when I was eight, and I spent the next 10 years hopping between foster homes. Let's just say, they barely did me any favors. I have got nothing. No job, no place to live and I have no one to be with.

Except...well...I do have DNA test results from a genealogy website. With close family matches.

It’s probably a stupid idea. A total long shot, really.

...I’m going to go and find them.

But then I met him. He is everything I have ever wanted. But he won't stop me from finding my kin. He is too old for me anyway. It's just a fling. Just someone to take comfort in until I can find my family members. Right?

Now THIS is the way to start a new series!...

...(I recently listened to an Audible Book 1 for a new series in which the author felt a need to thoroughly introduce each character of the subsequent books and their problems etc.) OVERALL — 5 stars I probably saved more bookmarks from this Audible than any other in my library. The writing by Oliver/Kandi is top-notch and the performance by McKenna is the best of any other J.P. Oliver I ever listened to. PLEASE, J.P., sign up Gage McKenna to do all of your future books since he obviously knows how it's done. PERFORMANCE — 5 stars (I listened at speed 1.4) From chapter 1 on it was obvious I was listening to a true professional audiobook reader. He gave life to each character—not just the main characters. This is the way its done and Gage McKenna is now on my list of narrators to look for and listen to. STORY — 5 stars I have never heard of Linda Kandi, but I suspect she had a great deal to do with making this book so good. It is the best book I have ever listened to with J.P. Oliver's name on it, and I get the impression that a lot of time and love went into making this book perfect (and it is perfect in all categories, which I have always felt J.P. would get to someday). In other words, I believe this book was not rushed to press... maybe because Linda wanted to get it just right first. If that is the case, it paid off big time! My rating scale: 1 = Junk! (dumpster worthy) // 2 = Poor // 3 = Good (average) // 4 = Great // 5 = Excellent! (award worthy) If this review has been helpful, please click "Helpful" below.

Couldn’t put it down

This is the first book in the Benson Brother Series with well-developed characters by J.P Oliver and Linda Kandi. I am a fan of J.P Oliver stories, and this did not disappoint. This story is about Joshua, who comes to Bennett Wood looking for a family that a DNA test revealed. When first entering the town, Joshua meets Jay, who is a truck driver, and who also just got to town to clear out his deceased mother's house. Both men have always just wanted to be accepted and loved. Thru their journey, they grew closer together and want to make a home in Bennett Wood. I am looking forward to the next book in this series. The narration was very well done.

Good story

Ok. The narration is great. The story was good. I loved Jay's character. Joshua's character was well written but a little bit too angsty for my normal taste. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and am really starting to like this author. Sometimes when stories are written in 1st person we can be too much in the character's head. I think this was my only issue. Again, I loved this story. It's just that if JP Oliver wasn't such a great writer, Joshua's angst would be way too much for me.

Narration

He did a good job and the book was enjoyable however, the difference between voices was so slight it was almost nonexistent. This series could have been really good with two narrators.

great chemistry

Joshua had always wanted to know his birth family. He decided to go to the small town of Bennetwood. There he unraveled the mystery of his birth family, but also he found love, and a place to call home. The narration by Gage McKenna was very good. 🎧audiobookobsessionreviewer🎧

Interesting Story

I enjoyed this. I liked the idea of a DNA test finding close relatives. I really enjoyed all the characters, they had unique voices and personalities. The connection between the two mains was strong. There's a few surprises throughout that I didn't expect, which I enjoyed. Gage McKenna's narration was fantastic. He brought life to the story. #AudiobookObsession

Sweet Romance

I enjoyed listening to this lovely story. Seeing Joshua find a family of his own, and Jay overcome his childhood issues was wonderful. They are both beautiful people and deserve every happiness. Beautiful narration as well. Curious to see where this nonconsensual infertility storyline leads. This audiobook was given to me by the Author and I voluntarily left this review.

Great MM romance

This was a great M/M romance. When a chance one night stand ends up becoming more. This was a great home coming romance. It has good romance and sexual attraction. This was a short and sweet story. # Audiobook Obsession

Finding His Way Home

MM books are a not-so-guilty pleasure of mine, but I feel like not very many writers do them justice. Thankfully this book was very well done. This is also the first book I've read where any of the characters finds family using DNA tests and I really enjoyed having that put into the story line. Narration by Gage McKenna was well done. #AudiobookObsession 🎧AudiobookReviewer

This is not my usual type of book being a MM romance but I found it to be unexpectedly good. It was a sweet book and I fell in love with the characters. I will be checking out more books like this. 🎧Audiobook Obsession

DNA leads to love?

A great story of finding love. A DNA test leads to finding a messed up family dynamic. Along the way he finds his love. I have been enjoying MM reads lately. This one will not disappoint. The narrator Gage, wow, his voice was hot, smooth and very alluring. #audiobook obession reviewer

Overall good book

This was my first book by J.P Oliver and Linda Kandi and I really enjoyed listening to this book. Joshua is searching for a family and somewhere to belong. Jay is an older man and the two hit it off and there is instant attraction between them. This story is dealing with confusion for both guys and personal issues. It's worth the time to read. #audiobookobssessionreviewer

🎧Reviewed for Audiobook Obsession 🎧

A story of wanting to find your roots, your family, there reason you where given up. This storyline is a common one, but the surprise answer to the characters questions not so much. Finding love is also not an easy feat when you feel unloved, so this story also has the best of two worlds finding a family and love. Narrator was new to me, but I found him enjoyable.

Surprise, surprise, surprise!

Finding his Way Home is a book that for me was full of surprises! This is my first book by JP Oliver and Linda Kandi, and I was surprised by how contemporary this story is. We first meet Joshua, a young man who has spent his life in and out of foster homes. Now armed with DNA results, he heads to Bennett Wood, North Carolina to seek out his possible family. He meets Jay, an older man, back in Bennett Wood to clean out his mother's home. These two men hit it off, and while meant to be one night, their chemistry is too obvious to think it should be more. These two complex characters lead us through a great story. More of my surprises lead to cover ups, ancestry, small town antics, dealing with death and sentimentality, it's all there melded together by a romance too strong to ignore. If you enjoy MM, this is a series you will want to start and see where book 2 takes you. Narrated by Gage McKenna, the story flows with ease. It's my first listen by him,and I love his voice. He has a variety of male and female voices, but I especially love his ability to go from Joshua to Jay with ease. I will watch for more of his performances.

Enjoyable

The story is very good and it certainly made me want to keep going until I finished it. Told from alternating POVs, the switch between characters, and authors, is seamless. Joshua and Jay work well as a couple for me. The problems between them are usually caused by Joshua's younger age and immaturity and, of course, the insecurity from his upbringing. What starts as a fling transforms into a real relationship once everything starts to come together. I did have one problem with the storyline. The DNA reveal only starts to come together in the epilogue and it feels more logical to me that it should be when Joshua meets his 3 brothers. I know the conflict continues in Book 2, which is Luke's story, so that is probably why the authors did this. Narration by Gage McKenna is clear and well paced throughout making this a very professional, and thus enjoyable, read.
