Publisher's Summary

“I - I can’t be gay. I don’t know how.” 

Ace Payne grew up repressed. It’s no secret to him. His parents don’t like people who are "different" - and being gay certainly doesn’t fit their narrow view of the world. He holds himself back from finding love as a response to their toxic voices ringing in his ears, but when he’s outed to the Denver PD, his life in the closet quickly turns unbearable. The solution? A work transfer.
 

“We can have each other for the night, or the week, or the month - but long term? No. I don’t do relationships.”
 

Detective Ryder Mueller has always been open about his love for other men. A consummate jokester and free spirit, this "playboy" is all about making others happy. But when he’s assigned to show Ace the ropes, he quickly finds himself torn between falling love...or guarding his heart.
 

They build them big in the small town of Harlan, Colorado - where the winters are beautiful and the mountain men are gorgeous. Listen along as we join them in Harlan, where the pain of the past drips away as these sexy, rugged mountain men find their true loves and embrace a lifestyle of happily ever afters. This audiobook and every other audio book in the For You series can be listened to in any order.

great listen/read

I was so glad Ace allowed himself to love. His parents tried to brain wash him with their prejudices. I was happy he was able to help his cousin. I liked how Ryder's natural joy and outgoing nature helped Ace to grow and find his place under the sun with Ryder. I enjoyed the narrator's voice.

Loved it

This is the second book in the For You Series with developed characters. Ace is stoic and at first is unsure on if he can be himself, while Ryder is a charming free spirit. A little bit of opposites attracts; while complementing each other. Both men decided to open up and show their real selves to open up to the possibility of love. The narration was executed excellently. I can't wait for the next book to come out.

A ROUSING STORY OF TWO SEPARATE UPBRINGINGS

A wonderful story of a closeted by force gay man, Ace, and his new police partner, Ryder, finding out each other’s problems and phobias. This story digs into the psyches of each man and tells how they were reared and formed, one with loving, nurturing mother and the other with Bible strict parents. They find themselves learning how to be themselves and trying to find a relationship that will work.

I loved the way the narrator changed his voice for the different characters and made the story easier to follow.

Awesomeness!!!!!

This book has it all!!! It has internal conflict and external problems too!! I would highly recommend that this book must be listened. The narrator who did the voices of the characters did an excellent job of making the book come alive.

Finding their place.

This was enjoyable. I wasn't crazy about the audio book narrator (who was different from the narrator of the first book) using Clint Eastwood gruff voices when portraying the 'tough' guys of the book and meeker needy voices for the other men.

Love It!

I love this story. Great plot that is very well written and developed, flows flawlessly. Ace and Ryder are spectacular characters that I took an instant liking to. They both grew so much throughout the story that it was a joy to watch. Ace learned to really be himself and was able to gradually accept himself and really give his all to the developing relationship with Ryder. Ryder was able to finally put his past hurts behind him and go all in with Ace. The narrator did a great job with the story and the characters. I’d really love to hear more of this series. I voluntarily reviewed a gifted copy of this audiobook.

Great story of finally being able to be yourself

I listened to this as an audiobook. For the story itself, I really enjoyed reading about Ace and Ryder. Ryder was one of Eli and Tyson's best friends that we got to meet in the last book. Ace was a new cop at the precinct and Ryder was tasked as his training partner. Ace came to Harlan because he was outed and harassed at his previous precinct. He struggles with being out and with how accepting everyone is. For the first time, he is free to be himself. Ryder doesn't do relationships and Ace has never given it much thought, so their feelings for each other come as a surprise to both of them. I enjoyed the story and am looking forward to the next in the series. The only issue I had while listening to this is that this narrator is different than the one for the last book. While I don't mind a narrator change, I felt like this narrator changed the personality of Tyson in this book. If he hadn't met Tyson before, it wouldn't bother me, but Tyson was made a bit different in this version, and I didn't feel like it was true to who we got to know before. Otherwise, this was a great story.

No longer a Playboy!

I loved this story for several reasons. As in most of the LGBTQ themed books there is mention of homophobic attitudes that cause one of the characters to leave their home and/or job. Or telling his parents he is gay and he is disowned. This is the catalyst for the change of towns, change of job, AND meeting your soulmate.

Ryder was a playboy, never wanting to be tied down. Ace was the new Detective that had a hard time accepting himself as a gay man. Then we meet Nori, Rider's mother who reads auras, palms, and tea leaves. She warns both men that they must talk and not let the lust they feel define their relationship.

Through ups and downs they realize what they mean to each other. The rest of the story with all the details is a wonderful journey for the reader to take! ENJOY!

Ryder and Ace...

Ace was just transferred to Harlan PD where gay is well accepted. Far different from his last job. Ryder is his partner for a week showing him the ropes. But that’s not all he shows him. Ace will have his world turn around. I enjoyed Ryder’s teasing and good nature, while helping a struggling Ace. Everyone precinct is like a family and that was cool to read. They had great chemistry even with so much uncertainty from Ace.
Good narration by Dubois.

Wonderful

I loved listening to this book and following Ace as he can start to learn to be himself without his family’s rules and when he meets Ryder at work. They have a few stumbling problems but they get thru and start to have some fun.
