Publisher's Summary

Reeling from the recent death of his wife, police officer Evan Cerelli looks at his four children and can only see how he fails them. His loving wife was the caretaker and nurturer, and now the single father feels himself being crushed by the pain of loss and the heavy responsibility of raising his kids.

At the urging of his partner, Evan celebrates a coworker's retirement and meets disgraced former cop turned security consultant Matt Haight. A friendship born out of loneliness and the solace of the bottle turns out to be exactly what they both need.

The past year has been a slow death for Matt Haight. Ostracized from his beloved police force, facing middle age and perpetual loneliness, Matt sees only a black hole where his future should be. When he discovers another lost soul in Evan, some of the pieces he thought he lost start to fall back in place. Their friendship turns into something deeper, but love is the last thing either man expected, and both of them struggle to reconcile their new and overwhelming feelings for one another.

    "Finally in audio"
    Any additional comments?

    I love this series, well, mostly I love Matt, Evan is too much of a martyr for my taste. Sadly I don't like the narrator very much, he sounds like he's going to cry most of the time, if they stick with him for the rest of the books in the series, I won't be getting them.
    But, if you've read the blurp and listened to the sample and thought "wow" then go for it, it really is a good series.

    Story
    "Bad Narrator really takes away from this book"

    OMG, talk about dousing my excitement with cold water. The narrator was really bad. He sounded like he was sitting on the washer during the spin cycle because his voice had this vibration thing--almost like he was crying.

    This is a beloved series but I will not recommend anyone do this one on audio. Please read it because you won't be able to focus on the story. Basically, widower Evan Cerelli is drowning in a sea of grief until his friendship with an ex-cop Matt Haight becomes a lifeline. What happens when two straight men begin developing feeling for each other? This was their awkward and terrifying journey as they tried to figure out what this means.

    Great story, I love this series and it is second only to Cut & Run for me. The writing here is really gripping and I just felt the angst. I have read the book several times and couldn't wait to get the audio. I highly recommend this one as a READ series, not a listen series.

    Story
    "Well that fell flat"
    What would have made Faith & Fidelity better?

    A way better narrator. He sounds like an old man with a bad accent and everyone that was male sounded the same. I couldn't tell who was who half the time.


    What did you like best about this story?

    When Matt and Evan got together for the first time. It was like they were teenagers sneaking out together.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of JP Handler?

    Tristan James, Jeff Gelder, Greg Trembly. Heck I'd even have settled for sean crisdens terrible voices.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Faith & Fidelity?

    Not much to cut in this book.


    Any additional comments?

    I was so sad hearing the narration for this book. I've waited a long time for them to come out with the audio book and when it finally came out it fell flat for me.

    Story
    "I didn't mind the narrator"

    I actually put off listening to this book b/c of all the terrible narrator reviews. But I got to tell you, I didn't mind him. It is not the best I've heard, but it is certainly not the worst. But I thought he did an OK job. I only wish he had more diversity for Evan and Matt; sometimes I couldn't tell who was speaking b/c they sounded so much alike.

    This was one of my favorites as an ebook and I really enjoyed it in audio form as well. Actually it has been a while since I read it, so in listening to it, I actually picked up on a lot. This is the story of a cop mourning the loss of his wife and finding joy with another man. I think they call it "latent homosexuality" and it hits both men. But what makes this story so powerful is the courage shown by both men to be with each other. I'm going to get the 3rd book, which picks up the story and skip the 2nd, because it is with a different couple and really doesn't have Evan & Matt. The 3rd book deals with what happens AFTER the HEA of this book.

    It was worth a credit to me, but for others apparently not.

    "I didn't mind the narrator"

    Other reviewers haven't been too gracious about the narrator. He's not the best narrator I've heard, but I didn't find it detracted from the story. Good story, enjoyed it. Worth a credit.

    "Narrator detracts from the story"

    This is actually a very good story and I love the family of one of the main charaters. BUT the narrator is really weird. The story starts out with the death of the wife of one of the MC - and he (the narrator) sounds heartbroken - and at first u think "Whoa hes really getting in to this" but no... I dont know - mayby he should have taken some personal time to get over what ever is making him miserable, because he sounds on the verge of tears all the time. My advice -READ the book instead!

    Story
    "All About Fidelity"

    What a story of one man's journey to reclaim his life. This audiobook grabbed my attention from the beginning and I was genuinely worried for Evan. His character felt authentic. Along with the secondary characters, readers gained a complete look into his life. Then along came Matt with his feelings of isolation. As their friendship grew organically, I was cheering them on despite the obstacles.

    Faith & Fidelity was done well on audio and the story lends itself to the format easily. The narrator provided a range of voices for the many different characters and infused the appropriate emotion to highlight the story without overpowering it.

    This originally reviewed on the Guilty Indulgence Review Site.

    "the narrator messed it up"

    i like the story and how the lead men discovered love. i would have enjoyed the story more if i didn't spend the whole time trying to figure out who was talking. every character had the same tone which made it, at times, difficult to follow.

    "Revisiting a favorite story"
    What did you love best about Faith & Fidelity?

    The story, the set up between two previously straight men, who come to find that they belong together.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Faith & Fidelity?

    The happy ending, as the problems and doubts are resolved and the men decide they do belong together.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by JP Handler?

    Yes, but he is stilted at times, sort of robotic. At other times there is no difficulty.


    Any additional comments?

    A worthwhile tale, one I've reread multiple times. It is a pleasure to have an audio version available.
