For the past six years at the University of Oregon, Trey has been completely focused on studying. With no time for relationships, he's had to rely on the occasional hookup to fulfill his physical need for companionship. Now that he's almost done with his master's degree in biology, his attention is on his career. Relationships will have to wait. Again.
Chuck is hitching his way across the country, doing what he must to survive while trying to stay off the radar of an abusive ex. He just wants to get to L.A. in one piece so he can start over. His job skills are limited, but anything will be better than what he's running from. Hiding is hard but Chuck isn't ready to be found.

Will is running from an abusive boyfriend and takes on the name Chuck. Trey is a good guy buy seems clueless about dating or even chatting up guys. A chance meeting, aided by Luka from book 7, brings Trey and Chuck together. This book really feels more like the beginning of their story especially as 'Will' has a whole other life he left behind.
Evan, a side character, is lovely I can't wait to read about him in book 9.
As usual Michael Ferraiuolo manages to get the depth of emotion just right for these characters, you really feel how terrified Will/Chuck is. The narration adds a dimension to Trey in that his attitude comes across as ignorance of how to deal with a social situation rather than he's being a jerk
"No More Running"
Chuck, a fugitive from a physically abusive relationship, runs away but meets up with a wonderful surpise when he finds himself in Portland, Oregon.
In Portland, Chuck finds friends, people who really care and want to help. He also meets his Mr. Right, in an adorable and sexy geek named Trey.
Sometimes when you run from a bad situation you run smack into something good. Aria Grace has done it again. Her characters are well developed and I don't necessarily mean physically either. Her books all have excellent plots and scenarios, not to mention the steamy love scenes.
"Love on the Run"
The story of Trey and Chuck is so sweet.
Chuck is on the run from a psycho ex determined to see him dead and Trey is a geeky forensic scientist with serious relationship issues.
Trey appears in several of the other books but in this one we finally get a chance to know him. He is a bit jaded, callous almost but determined and committed to creating a good life for himself. He has no time for love and romance and having been on the receiving end of rejection has built up walls of protection that make him appear douchey at times.
But when he meets Chuck he tries and after a few mistakes that will have you screaming he finally manages to get it right and the feels you get by the end are worth the sometimes bumpy ride.
The narration is great and I go back and forth about which of the narrators of this series I like best but I guess that's a good problem to have.
Story was ok and of course I'm head over heels in love with Michael Ferraiuolo performance.
good story, it just ended too soon, and the antagonist is dealt with so quickly I almost missed it, I had the same complaint with another book in this series "my name is luka" if the book would have been maybe another 2 hours long I could have had a more satisfying wrap up, but they deal with it like it's nothing, and the bad guys in the book are doing some serious stuff too, I don't know if I want to continue the series because of that even though the narrators are great the stories are great but it reminds me of a Disney special where they have a bad guy, but because the good guys team up and let's say dump a bucket of water on their head then we never hear or see from them again.
What the ever loving hotness did I just listen to? I just. I feel like. I loved it when.
Omg. This one had a lot of excitement and action than the others, which I enjoyed. I love how Aria can create such an intense connection from me to the characters in no time at all. By the end of a 3 hr narration, I care more about the characters than other books 3x as long.
The narrator was fantastic. He doesn't have the strongest difference in tone or voice from one character to the next, but he still does a great job.
