Publisher's Summary

Giovanni Romero had been dealt his fair share of heartbreak throughout his 30 years, including losing his beloved parents in a horrible car accident. After suffering yet another devastating loss, he decided to chase his dream of opening his own restaurant and was soon the proud owner of Romero’s, a hugely successful and critically acclaimed Italian restaurant, nestled in the heart of Chicago.

Knowing that one more blow to his heart could destroy him, Giovanni had built walls up around his heart to protect himself. He had created strict rules for himself about the men he slept with, which included never exchanging names and absolutely no repeat performances. That was until he met a young man whom he found impossible to forget. 

After spending the last few years traveling throughout Europe and the Mediterranean, working as an apprentice to some of the world’s top chefs, 23-year-old Caleb Greene was finally moving back home. While he had enjoyed his studies, he couldn’t wait to reunite with his big, crazy, loving family, especially his twin brother, Carter. Most importantly, he hoped to finally begin his career working as the head chef for Chicago’s most prestigious Italian restaurant, Romero’s. 

After a night of celebration with Carter, Caleb finds himself in a rare position, going home with a tall, dark, and sexy stranger. Caleb had never had a one-night stand before, but there was something about the man that drew him in. Unfortunately, the man insisted they could be together for only one night.

Unable to get the intriguing young man off his mind, but resolved to let him go, Giovanni was shocked to find that Caleb had been hired as his new head chef. Working in such close proximity to each other, could he keep his carefully erected walls in place and protect his heart, or would Caleb have the strength to tear those walls down, setting Giovanni free?

Sexy and sweet story...amazing narration.

A story of love strong enough to break through walls complete with sexy men, steamy scenes, tender moments and a happy ending...Just my kind of story. And with the Michael Pauley for narrator, this tale of love went from good to great. That man knows how to tell a read a story! Hope the rest of this series comes to audible soon and they keep him on as narrator.

More!!!

I always enjoy when Michael Pauley narrates a story and, once again, he had me hooked on the storyline. Having read Feeding The Soul I felt that Pauley brought the characters, their emotions and their personalities to life. Hip and Caleb are soulmate, neither was out looking for love but it found them. Their interactions are real and we get introduced to Greene family. all I can say is, I hope Pauley and Michael's hook up for the next book in the series, "Music of the Soul." Please.

This book is Amazing!

Feeding the Soul is the first book in the Souls of Chicago series by Annabella Michaels. I really love this story, it flowed from beginning to end and the narration was wonderful. Michael Pauley has such a sexy voice. Caleb Greene and Giovanni Romero have such great chemistry. I can’t wait till the next book in the series comes out on audio.

A little sappy but a thorough story

I'm a stickler for timing and this story had several issues with the timing of events. It was also pretty sappy especially the way it was narrated. But I did enjoy the thoroughness and will definitely read... maybe listen to the next one. The narration was very expressive but sometimes the words were just too breathy for me. If one character spoke that way it would have been acceptable. But both men were narrated really breathy and long drawn out words sometimes. As this is an older book, I will definitely give both author and narrator another try.

LOVE This Story

I can't even begin to say just how much I love this story. I fell in love with all of the characters. They had me laughing, crying, screaming and going through so many emotions. Giovanni and Caleb are so perfect together. I love the patience and understanding that Caleb has for Giovanni, and I really like seeing Giovanni opening up and breaking down his walls throughout the story.
Michael Pauley is totally amazing. He brings lie to the story and the characters. He makes you really feel all of the emotions that the characters are experiencing. He is truly gifted!!

A Great Balance

This book was a fabulous read and I highly recommend it. The story flowed at a great pace and I was never board. Each character was well developed alway and I knew I had to read Carters story. Michael Pauley did a fantastic job with the narration. I hope that the rest of the books will be available for Audible.
