How steamy is it? Hot Damn

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.

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.

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.

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.

Jessie gets his love story!

First I will talk about this book and then I will talk about the how badly I want the rest of this series to be available on audible. Currently only books 9,10,&11 are available on audible. These books can be stand alone but there are amazing couples that I want to hear vs read since Greg tremblay is my favorite narrator!
I fell in love with Jessie in book 8 and I honestly love that Greg tremblay was able to really embody his joyful spirit. I initially started the first and forever series because it was narrated by Greg tremblay and all 3 available books were part of my romance package. Jessie is an amazingly fun and zany character and it is wonderful that he finds someone who truly enjoys his playful and spontaneous nature. There are so many hilarious and over the top antics that involve Nana Dombruso this was absolutely one of my favorite in the entire series. This is probably one of the lightest stories in the series so if you want to read out of order I recommend starting with this book.

Now to the second part of this review. PLEASE PUT THE REST OF THIS SERIES AUDIBLE & PLEASE LET GREG TREMBLAY KEEP NARRATING THEM!!!! This was a true hidden treasure as part of my romance package. I came for the Greg tremblay and stayed for the huge cast of amazing characters. This is one of the few series that I actually bought all of the missing books on kindle and I will definitely buy the rest of the books if they become available on audible. If you like Lucy Lennox, Mary calmes, Aimee Nicole Walker, & Charlie Cochet you will enjoy this series.

Loved it!

Such a sweet romance with all the comedy and sexy times you'd expect from Alexa Land. This is my favorite of the 3 books in this series available on Audible. Please, please give us the rest of this series too!

I'm so glad I found this book, it's so good.

I was incredibly lucky to find this book, my first from this author. With all the great reviews I knew I needed to give it chance. I was a little hesitant after the street racing mentions but I'm so glad I did, it was a minor part of the plot, but it got the guys together.. Jessie is probably the sweetest most caring and thoughtful character I've ever encountered in a Romantic Novel, and so was Kai. They got a rough start because they both made assumptions about the other that turned out to be totally wrong. At first it seems very unlikely that Jessie and KaI would ever get together, but the developing romance between them was incredibly fun to experience. Nana is a hoot and her cooking show and feud with the neighbor had me laughing hysterically. I've been fortunate to experience dozens of great Audible Books, but this one is my new favorite. It's so positive and uplifting. I had a satisfied smile on my face at the end. The Narrator just nailed it. All his voices fit the characters perfectly. He brought each character to life, absolute perfection. I've listened to it twice already.

As Good as #9

I really enjoyed Coming Home and was fearful of listening to the next two installments in this series, because I figured I'd be disappointed. All I Believe was indeed a bit of a letdown from Coming Home, though still entertaining,. But The Distance was at least as good as #9 in the series. The main characters were likable, and the crisis in the book was not what I expected. It was a real thriller that turned Jessie into a hero. I really enjoyed it. The narration was fine as well

Like I said of Coming Home, the book may not have been perfect, but it was perfectly entertaining, so I gave it 3 fives.

I wish all these books were available on audio.
