Publisher's Summary

A historical romance with a wink and a nod toward Peter Pan.

Peter Woods is content to live a gadfly life, darting from one experience to the next with no thought of responsibility, commitment, or the future. He has no desire to grow up. Stable, sober banker Wendell Rhodes has only recently discovered an underground London club where men meet and briefly mingle. At Ever Lads, Wendell encounters Peter and flint strikes tinder. The two opposites discover in the other what each lacks, but the journey from lust to love isn't easy.

Determined to make a man of his son at last, Peter's father attempts to curtail his hedonistic lifestyle. When Wendell's reputation is threatened, will Peter sacrifice his freedom to protect the man he's grown to care deeply for, or is there another way for crafty Peter to save the day?

Better than expected

I thought this would be too kitschy but it was really great. Nuanced characters, genuine emotional arcs, good narration.

Cute Peter Pan retelling

I liked the linking of this story to Peter Pan. It was fun to see the characters from my childhood reflected in these people. Having said that, this was only a good story. I wanted more. I wanted to clap for Tink.

Wasn't quite as good as I hoped.

Once again the narration by Todd Scott was terrific. There were a lot of characters to voice in this book and he did a phenomenal job differentiating them all, bravo!
Unfortunately I didn't like this story as much as I had hoped. I think it was mostly because Peter and Wendell really didn't spend a whole lot of time together, Peter was with his friends and father more than anything. I also found him to be very childish, and while I know this was a play on Peter Pan, it got to be a little irritating. Wendell was my favorite character. I thought he was really sweet.
With about an hour to go I almost threw in the towel, but there was just an hour left so I kept on. I liked the ending, it did make the listen worthwhile- along with the narration!

Sweet Story

The story was sweet but there just wasn't much to be invested in. I love a gay romance, but I always like the ones that also have a storyline outside of their romance. This didn't have much of one, just a focus on the relationships with their fathers.
