Publisher's Summary

Ezra Greene has made a pretty decent life for himself. He has a nice apartment and spends his days doing the one thing he's always loved - creating art. Despite being somewhat of a grumpy recluse, he's even made a few loyal friends. When he takes a side job painting a mural at a local holistic center, he can't help being curious about a certain friendly and self-assured yoga instructor, even if he doesn't buy into any of that Zen crap. His holier-than-thou family already tried fitting him inside a box, and he swore he'd never be molded into anybody's belief system again.

For Daevonte Randall, adulthood has worked out pretty well. He's close to his parents and lives with an awesome roommate. He's content with weekend hookups, teaching yoga, and taking college courses. What he doesn't expect is to be so intrigued by the brooding and reserved painter he's been tasked to stay after hours with at the center. Something fascinates him about Ezra, even after Daevonte's attempts at flirting gets him friend-zoned on the spot.

As weeks pass, Ezra and Dae get to know each other, and soon their friendship catches fire. But Ezra's been burned pretty badly before so trust and intimacy has to be earned. Daevonte feels up to the task, but it proves difficult as Ezra continues to keep his emotions in check. Dae's only willing to wait so long, and when they're dealt a surprising blow, Ezra needs to decide if love is worth the risk...that is, if it's not too late.

favorite in the series so far

A very enjoyable listen. The 2 narrators took a bit to get used to, but the subject matter dealing with spirituality, demisexuality, differences but similar desires for the same outcome, compromises and how to show love all felt very honest.

Wonderful Addition to the Series

First I am glad that this couple was an interracial couple. I feel it is something we don't see very often in this genre of books. I have read the previous books in the series and this one by far stands out as one of the better ones, not that the other ones aren't great I just feel like this one stands out more.
The characters in the story go through an emotional journey that I enjoy because there isn't any insta love here and the struggles they deal with are real struggles. This book touches on sexuality in the A Spectrum and how sex can only be done when there is a deep emotional bonding at play.
We also get a glimpse of characters from previous books in the next book in the series Living out Loud.
I would highly recommend this book and the entire series, you won't be disappointed.
My only issue is the narration seemed a bit off. I have never been a fan of two narrators in the same book because the voices never seem the match. Also every time a new chapter begins and it was from Davontes POV I had to say it with him because he said it so funny.
And yes there is sex scenes in this book and they are hot and steamy.
