If short-tempered Jason can open his heart and life to optimistic Abe, he might finally find the family he craves.
Short-tempered, arrogant heart surgeon Jason Garcia grew up wanting a close-knit family, but believes he ruined those dreams when he broke up his marriage. The benefit of divorce is having as much random sex as he wants, and it’s a benefit Jason is exploiting when he meets a sweet, shy man at a bar and convinces him to go home for a no-strings-attached night of fun.
Eight years living in Las Vegas hasn’t dimmed Abe Green’s optimism, earnestness, or desire to find the one. When a sexy man with lonely eyes propositions him, Abe decides to give himself a birthday present—one night of spontaneous fun with no thoughts of the future. But one night turns into two and then three, and Abe realizes his heart is involved.
For the first time, Abe feels safe enough with someone he respects and adores to let go of his inhibitions in the bedroom. If Jason can get past his own inhibitions and open his heart and his life to Abe, he might finally find the family he craves.
I’m in love and his name is Ezekiel Robison. This new (to me) narrator blew me out of the water. HE IS AWESOME. Robison takes all of the awesome hot dirty talk and the smoking’ hot sexy times and turns it all up to eleven!
Jason, a 36-year-old surgeon, is looking for a one-off to help him forget his bad day. He walks into a bar and immediately hears 26-year-old math teacher Abe laugh and is instantly drawn to him. Even though Abe never does one night stands he decides there’s something about Jason and takes him home for a night of explosively hot sex. A couple of months later Jason goes to another bar for a hook-up and hears Abe laugh and, again, he’s immediately drawn again to Abe.
“Wow.” Abe coughed and then cleared his throat. “I’ve heard the phrase ‘undressing someone with your eyes’ but I don’t think I’ve ever actually seen it happen until just now.”
I absolutely love that Jason and Abe’s relationship develops naturally over time and how perfectly Robison narrates every stage of their relationship. Not to mention how fantastically hot he makes the sex scenes.
“Why would I want you to leave?” Jason said after several moments of silence. “Nobody would want that.” He straightened his posture and ran his gaze up and down Abe’s body. “You’re a wet dream come to life. The sweetest, most patient man on earth, like a damn angel. Until the clothes come off, and then you’re filthy and sexy and so damn horny you make my balls ache.”
Stories like this are why Cardeno is my crack. I cannot get enough!
Bottom Line: Lightly sprinkled with just a soupçon of angst this story has it all: humor, romance, amazing characters, character growth, and then you also get hot sex and dirty talk!
This audio is perfection. 5+ Stars!! It is immediately going on my favorites shelf, and, more importantly, going immediately into my monthly rotation. Robison is also going on my favorite narrator list.
