Publisher's Summary

Daniel: I suck at relationships and don't trust anyone, but there are reasons for that. For one thing, every person I've ever cared about has let me down. The only recent exception: O'Leary's town veterinarian...my new best friend.  

I came to O'Leary for a fresh start. To pare things down to essentials. To forget about the failures in my past. The last thing I need is complications, and most definitely not a boyfriend.  

Julian: I've lived in O'Leary my entire life and learned to fly under the radar a long time ago. I do what's expected, say what's expected, and keep to myself as much as possible. It's a hell of a lot simpler spending my time working with animals than trying to interact with actual people. The one unlikely exception: the gorgeous guy who moved to a cabin just outside of town and somehow became my best friend.  

But friendships are complicated, and one morning I find myself accidentally telling the whole town the biggest lie of my life. Which is how Daniel Michaelson, my very straight, very hot best friend becomes my fake boyfriend, even though he's most definitely not my lover.

Hotness, Characters, Plot, and Performance: Oh My

I bought this book because of the galactic, stellar ratings by listeners. I was not disappointed at all. There was the hotness of the two main subjects. Okay, there was also the depth and personal character of the main and secondary actors. The brilliant dialogue was brilliantly performed by Alexander and Iggy (I feel like I know them now). And, the plot was multifaceted and captivating. I would be dishonest if I did not mention that the romantic (sexual) content seemed to spring from the mind of a woman. Well, it did, so no huge surprise there, but it was not a distraction. I enjoyed every minute of getting to know Julian and Daniel. I'm now looking for more books by May Archer.

Really enjoying this series

Julian makes me laugh and Daniel makes me cry, but only because of the beautiful heart he has. But I’m angry at him for not opening up to Julian sooner. The secrets are a killer but a nice surprise in the end!! As always Iggy Toma is an awesome narrator. I can’t get enough of his voice!!!

GREAT SERIES!

I am loving this series! While this book doesn't beat the first book, this book was still great! Well written and narrated.

In order to protect Daniel from the watchful eyes of small town folk that don't trust Daniel because he is anti-social, Julian claims that him and Daniel are dating. The thing is...they aren't- Daniel is his best friend...his straight best friend (or so they both think). So happens that all of the bonding they have done as friends may have brought out some feelings in Daniel that he never would have expected. Fake boyfriends, turns to real boyfriends. But with secrets that Daniel does not want to come to light, can they really have a chance?

This is a great book and I loved watching how their relationship developed.

Can't wait to see what's next in this series!

Loved it

I don't usually like fake relationships but it was also a GFY which I love. I loved how it went back in time then came back to present to show Daniel and Julian's relationship. I expected a little bit more of a reaction about all of the secret's Daniel kept. This book has a very low level of angst. Iggy Toma and Alexander Cendese do an amazing job narrating. You just can't go wrong with either one of them.

Never Disappointed!

As usual, May Archer doesn’t disappoint.
Absolutely loved the main characters, and as I have listened to the previous audiobook, ‘The Fall’, characters from that novel are cameo’d in this book.
The storyline is fluid and mixed, and from working out who J D Pritchard was from the the very first hint, it gets the reader pumped throughout the book as to when ‘the penny will drop’ with Julian!! 🤦‍♂️😱😁😊

Overall it’s a 10/10 for me, ticks all the boxes and definitely steamy 🧖‍♂️ in all the right places (scorching hot🥵 - definitely NOT for young adult readers - so beware)
Definitely not disappointed, in fact, exhilarated!
