Caleb Stone was raised on the Upper East Side, where wealth and lineage reigns, and “alternative lifestyles” are hidden. It took him years to come out to his family, but he’s still stuck in the stranglehold of their expectations. Caleb knows he has to build his confidence and shake things up, but he doesn’t know how… until Oliver Buckley enters the picture.

Oli is everything Caleb isn’t—risk-taking, provocative, and fiercely independent. Disowned by his family, Oli has made his own way in the world and is beholden to no one. After a chance encounter on New Year’s Eve, Caleb is smitten.

As Caleb sheds the insecurities that have held him back for years, he makes bold steps toward changing his career and escaping years of sexual repression. But for Caleb to take full control of his life, he has to be brave enough to confront his feelings and trust Oli with his heart.


Belens Audio Book Review

I absolutely LOVED the narration by Michael Ferraiuolo! Let me tell you folks, this kind of narration is why narrators end up with groupies.

groupies

Perfectly narrated, the character voices match the personalities, the tone and pacing is excellent, and the overall quality was superb.

The story itself is super sexy with relatable, realistic characters and a great flow which makes the whole thing totally worth listening to or reading.

Highly recommended.

I am a sarcastic, opinionated and filthy-mouthed book addict/lover. I’m happiest when reading and I spend most of my time with my Kindle, which is never far from my hand.
I just love to be told a good story! I mostly read fiction: Romance, Erotica, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal (shifters? Yes, please!), I like a little BDSM when I’m in the mood and love a good ménage story. I go hetero too…I DEFINITELY PREFER A HFN/HEA!

My biggest no-no’s are cheating, miscommunication / misunderstanding plots, unnecessary angst, and cliffhangers.

A sampling of my “Favorite M/M” stories:

How to Walk Like A Man  After School Activities When I Grow Up Carry the Ocean The Lightning-Struck Heart
Red Dirt Heart The Shearing Gun Manties in a Twist The Half of Us Dirty Heart
Ethan who Loved Carter Fast Connection The Mating of Michael Fight the Tide Sunset Park
