When the world labels a man and judges them blindly, is it possible to ever find love?
Firefighter Eric is on the front line, battling the threat of nature’s destruction in the California grasslands alongside his CalFire team. Focused and calm, even in the direst of situations, he has a strong affection for his fire truck, loves his career, and has best friends he can rely on. All he needs now is love, but that seems to be impossible to find. At his friend’s wedding. Eric falls in lust at first sight with the shy, slim, and sexy Brady, even if Brady isn’t the type of guy he usually goes for. What Eric longs for is an equal in his bed, not a smaller guy who might want Eric to role-play big strong firefighter every time they have sex. He wants to find someone he can be vulnerable with, someone who will love him for his soft heart and quiet ways.
Brady’s life plans grind to a halt when his niece and nephew lose their parents in a tragic accident, and he becomes a dad overnight. His Developmental Coordination Disorder rules his life, but he fights both DCD and the fears that chase him every day, to give Maddie and Lucas a home. Agreeing to go to a friend’s wedding is a decision he regrets long before he even gets there. But, he refuses to give in to his fear, even if he might do something that makes him a target for people’s comments and laughter. Meeting Eric, a huge man with a gentle voice and a flair for chivalry, he falls hard. Now, if only he can let himself get past his panic that Eric would never want someone like him, then maybe he could fall in love for real.
I absolutely loved this audio book. I really enjoyed reading the book, but Sean Crisden always brings the words to life in such an amazing, skillful way. His laid back charm gives the characters an added dimension and really makes for a wonderful listening experience.
Brady, having a few issues to overcome including his Developmental Coordination Disorder, feels as though he’ll never be boyfriend material. When firefighter Eric finds him enchanting from the start, they both have to let their pasts go if they are going to make a go of this relationship.
I loved how quickly and seamlessly Eric fit into Brady’s life. It was the perfect pairing, as RJ Scott is so perfect at giving us.
This was a very quality read, an even better audio, and a perfect second book in the series!
