Publisher's Summary

Life after college is not what Aaron expected. Isn’t he supposed to have what he wants to do figured out by now? David never expected his marriage to be rocky, let alone about to end. How is he supposed to move on from this? 

December in Detroit is normally unforgiving, but an unexpected blizzard puts David and Aaron on a course toward each other. Despite the frozen ground and battleship gray sky, these men find heat together. It’s intimate and illicit, stretching what was supposed to be a one night stand into something more. Sometimes, the touch of a stranger, however forbidden, is just what we need when we enter the gray.

You really colored my heart and my happiness

OMG! 😱 OMG! 😱 I should have listened to Trio and listened this sooner because boy, that was stellar! ❤️ Seriously, truth be told, when I started listening this audio, I thought it might take a day or two to finish. What I didn’t think was that this audio would be unputdownable. 😅 Seriously guys, I listened this in one sitting. I was simply blown away. 😳

David is going through a brutal divorce. He found out that his wife has been sexting with his best friend and it wasn’t even the root of his marital problems. Over the years, they’ve been drifting apart. And there’s the issue of his sexuality. He’s always been faithful to his wife but he’s always been attracted to other guys. So he’s either gay or at least bi. And he just reluctantly accepted it himself. And he has decided to finally serve his wife with the divorce papers and planned to spend the first night alone in his office. Nobody needed to know his sorrows. Suddenly, he heard the most beautiful voice singing around his office. And when he finally saw the man the song is coming from, the young man is as beautiful as the song he’s been singing. Aaron has been lost, drifting .. not knowing what to do or where to go. He’s been running from his past and now, he’s back in his hometown Detroit, working as a janitor just to pay the most basic necessities. In order to move forward, he has to let his past go and he doesn’t know how to. When he met the gray haired silver fox in the firm he’s been cleaning for the past couple weeks, he knew they were attracted to each other. The older man seems so lonely and sad and he just wanted to console his sorrows for a night. And of course, get some pleasure for himself. But David is a lot more than just a sexy silver fox. There’s a kind, caring, loving but lonely man beneath his cooperate facade. And when they are snowed in for days from a sudden snowstorm, both men realized that they don’t need to go through this alone since they have each other.

Beautiful, poignant, mesmerizing and simply breathtaking. 💜 I simply couldn’t put this audio down for a minute. Two lonely, sad men from very different worlds (or are they? 😉) found the happiness, love and acceptance in each other arms. 😍 It was just a gorgeous love story to witness. I also loved the fact that despite Aaron being the younger guy, he’s actually the mentor in this relationship since our David was a “virgin”. 😂 And boy, was that cherry popping smoking hot or what?!?!?!?! 🔥🔥🔥 Damn, I swear I could listen Vance Bastian saying “baby” all day long. This is my very first book from F.E. Feeley Jr. and I’m soooooooooo sooooooooooooo impressed! 😱👏 The romance and all the feels! 😳🥰 It really isn’t easy to write a simple contemporary love story that beautiful, that poignant, that breathtaking and that emotional. ❤️ Really, kudos to F.E. Feeley Jr. for writing such an extraordinary story. 👏 I AM hooked! 😁 I will be starting book 2 immediately because I need me more Aaron and David in my life. 😉💜😘

May December Romance

I really enjoyed the audio book! I absolutely had all the feels for both David & Aaron. Starting over is never easy and with their chance meeting they both have a new out look which is refreshing yet nerve wracking for each of them. The past can only haunt you if you allow it. I was so happy to see them move forward. The narration by Vance Bastian was really good. I enjoyed listening to his voice and his depiction of each character! Well done and I highly recommend the audible!

Short, sweet love

This story was short and sweet! Low angst but high on the dirty talk. Two lost people finding each other and developing a love when they really didn’t think they were in a place to find it. The narration was enjoyable but a little sudden between chapters (maybe I’m just used to a longer pause?). If you are looking for a no drama llama, this is a great choice!

Short but full of feels

The two main characters David and Aaron are likable, you will root for them right from the beginning. Their one night stand turns into a lot more and I like that they did not hide from it. They turned it into a true romance. Each character has issues they have to deal with, but with the help of each other, they weather the storm. I look forward to more of these two and more from this author.

Beautiful story

I didn’t know what to expect starting this book. The author was new to me and I didn’t know if I would enjoy it. I was so surprised and delighted to find such a beautiful heart felt story. These characters draw you in and you are cheering for them to find their happiness amongst so much change in their lives. There is so much depth and substance in this authors storytelling that you forget these characters have just met. I can’t wait to dive into the next book to see how their story evolves.

I want more 🥰

I want more of David and Aaron. Into the grey is a very well written short romance. David is a lawyer in his 40s, who’s marriage is falling apart. Aaron is lost, not sure what to do with his life. They meet and sparks fly. David has never been with a man before:) Aaron is so caring and patient with David. Into the grey is short, steamy romance that has all the feels. Honestly I wasn’t crazy about the narrator when I first started listening, but he grew on me and I really like him. Would definitely recommend into the grey

I Enjoyed it Very Much

I enjoyed this short and sweet romantic story. The book grabbed my attention from the first chapters and I was unable to put it down until the HEA conclusion. Both characters were "hiding" in the same building from life issues they were not ready to face. Their meeting sparked a love connection and it was very entertaining to follow their relationship development. I listened to several of this author's books and I love his writing style and storytelling. Narrator did a good job, but in my opinion he rushed through several scenes in this book. Overall this was a very good listening experience and I am looking forward to more audiobooks by this author and narrator.

Absolutely recommended

I thoroughly enjoyed this listen. I love forced proximity stories and this was perfection.

Both MC's were in very different places in their lives, but their communication was their strength. They went for the tough conversations first, talked through them and laid everything out.

It was easy to differentiate the speaker because of Vance Bastian's excellent narration. It was emotional and deep and I loved the back and forth dialogue that I could totally keep up with.

Totally recommended.

~There's always going to be the circumstances you can't plan for. There's always...

...the unexpected relevance and the serendipity~ J.S.

Into the Gray by F.E. Freely Jr. is an eloquent , well-crafted , contemporary , age gap, MM Romance . A poignant and candid love story that feels personal and intimate.

Two men, living in stasis . A self imposed emotional, mental and physical limbo. Afraid to move forward, backwards , in or out , of it. Meet one night and their lives , forever change.
Was it serendipity or maybe it was fate? Time and courage will tell . Because, for David and Aaron, find happiness together, they first have to confront their own past. And, new beginning means something needs to end.

I enjoyed listening to this emotionally charged , intense and hot AF story.

Vance Bastian narration was phenomenal. He perfectly convey and made me feel the angst, anticipation, confusion, horniness and passion, happiness, sadness and hope of the characters.

This is my first audiobook by this author and narrator. I think they make a great team.

Unique storyline

Very emotional and sweet. I really like how they overcome their obstacles together. It ended up being really sexy. I was a little nervous based on the blurb but in the end it was a great listen. The narrator was new to me but really good!

Perfect short story for a lazy afternoon

David is a lawyer about to enter divorce proceedings with his wife when he meets Aaron. Aaron is a janitor in his building and the two click upon first meeting. The relationship is fast paced but this is probably due to how short the book is, however it doesn’t detract from the story line, I love Aaron’s friends!!!

This is the first time I have listen to Vance’s narration and like his voice, however he needs to be careful as he goes into monotone at points throughout the book which throws you out of the story. But having said that it wouldn’t put me off listening to him again.

Loved it

So I have read this book and when given the opportunity to listen I jumped at the chance.
It’s a super little easy listening story.
F.E. Feeley Jr did a fantastic job when writing this.
A gentle story of when two people meet and how their romance progresses. If you want drama and angst this is not the listen for you. But definitely give it a chance.
