Publisher's Summary

What if everything you think you know about someone is completely wrong?

Twenty-four-year-old Jessie thinks he has fellow street racer Kai all figured out. The tall, dark-haired Hawaiian might be gorgeous, but he's also arrogant, angry, and a total menace when he gets behind the wheel. So why does an argument with Kai lead to the hottest sex of Jessie's life?

As sex starts to give way to so much more, Jessie wants to trust Kai. But after a betrayal in his past cut Jessie to the core, that doesn't come easily. Even if Kai proves to be far more than the gruff exterior he shows the world, Jessie's sure he'll screw up any chance at a relationship and get hurt all over again. He just needs to keep his distance, which would be a lot easier if the attraction between them wasn't so strong.

This gay contemporary romance is approximately 100,000 words. Please note: contains graphic sex and is only intended for adult listeners.

Where are the other books! PLEASE!!

I've now listened to all 3 books in this series available on Audible. I've loved each of them. they're hilarious touching and well written. Unlike other authors these stories have more believable dramatic turns and the interwoven stories of all her characters are complex and interesting. Sure there's the "really that many people in one family are gay?" factor but hey who doesn't like the idea of a gay Mafia family 🤔😉 I also like that you get time to enjoy protagonists as a couple and it's not just: well they're together now so that's the end. I give this 4 out of 5 dick balloons.

Loved it!

I read this book on the day of it's release on my kindle. And I loved it. I like Greg Tremblay as a narrator and have enjoyed the other books in this series that have been made into audiobooks. But this time, I really feel he outshone his previous narrations. He puts so much emotion in his narrative. And it's really amazing how he managed to give all the characters their own voice, but also really nailed the various accents. And there were several different accents in this book.
I look forward to eventually having all of the Firsts and Forever series narrated by him.

Love this series

Jessie and Kai are just so perfect. And with a good dose Nana drama the book is perfect. And the narrator did a perfect job giving them life. Hope the rest of the series comes on audio to.

One of My Favorites

I absolutely adore the accepting, supportive and hilarious cast of characters in this world author Alexa Land has created. Following Jessie and Kai as their relationship transforms from misunderstood street racing rivals to loving couple was a sweet journey, to say nothing of Nana and her unfiltered antics! She had me in absolute hysterics. Truth - the entire TV show crab cooking episode had me laughing out loud to the point of tears. Just the best. This audiobook was one of my first forays into the M/M genre (and it remains one of my favorites), and Greg Tremblay tops my auto-buy list of narrators. He has a masterful ability to strike the right emotional cords in his performance and create unique, age-appropriate and easily discernable voices for each character, male or female. I came into this series a bit backwards, as I hadn't read/listed to any of the books/audiobooks preceding this one, but I didn't have any trouble following along with who was who among the extended family and friends. With "The Distance" being Book 11 in the series, that truly is a credit to the author and caliber of her writing. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that more of the "Firsts & Forever" series will be added to Audible (with Greg narrating, of course).

Enjoyment from start to finish

I loved this book and all of the unique characters. Greg Tremblay is amazing and really good at bringing out the different characters. The only thing I have to "criticize" is that only 3 of the books in the series is on Audible.

Hilarious and so damn good!!

I loved this book so much! Nana was a blast and my absolute favorite. The storyline was great too with all the adventures, swearing and copious amount of dicks!! Amazing!! I wish I could give this book a million stars for making me laugh out loud. 🔥 Plus the firefly and Lego movie references were great. I cant say enough good things about this except my last gush is that the narrator was awesome!!! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
