Publisher's Summary

One summer changes their lives forever....

Alex Ellison is well-educated, rich, and good-looking. Too bad the ingredients of success haven’t mixed too well for him, and instead of having the world at his feet, Alex has, once again, landed himself in a hot mess of trouble. 

The community service his father arranges for him in a wildlife center on the other side of the country comes as a bit of a nasty surprise, though. Being shipped off to middle-of-nowhere, Oregon, is not Alex’s idea of the perfect summer vacation. What Alex never expects is to meet Noah Price. He never expects to be noticed and understood. He never expects to feel valued and special. He never expects to fall in love. 

Everything is not what it seems, though, and love that feels invincible turns out to be anything but. But love finds a way, and when Alex and Noah unexpectedly cross paths years later, they will have to risk it all for the love they both deserve and so desperately need.

A cute, feel good book.

In this book you get some teenagers who have a sordid love affair. The reason for the breakup is unknown until years later when they reconnect. Alex and Noah go through their ups and downs, but they make it work. This book was just so cute!! I loved it!!

Not the same ole same ole

I enjoyed the uniqueness of this story line - it brought a little something extra of interest to the usual m/m romance novels. Also, brought a unique issue to the forefront that many may not have ever been aware.
The narration was good - two excellent narrators although I could have used a little more Alexander Cendese just since I love his rich and rough voice.
I had expected a pleasant m/m romance novel and instead received a book with more substance in the plot and more intensity within the characters. Highly recommend this book.

MM first love & second chance

This was such a wonderful deep and insightful. It was also jammed full of emotions. I loved both Alex and Noah and thought they were everything. This story was about first love, life after your first love, and then a second chance for the books. I know a lot did not particularly like the reunion being so nice and tidy, but I rather enjoyed that a lot and found it believable for this couple. My own niggle was I kind of wanted to see the in-between a bit. Maybe from Noah's POV, as we had only gotten Alex's at this point. I know it would have been painful, but I think it would have helped the reunion be even sweeter. I loved everything about this though and thought it was a wonderful book. The narration was superb, done by Alexander Cendese and Igga Toma. Definitely a must read.
