Summary

Brent Weyland was the life of the party until an injury ended his hockey career. Now he's retreated alone to a lakefront house, trying to make sense of a life and body that doesn't feel like his anymore.

Jon Norquist was happily married right up until he wasn't. Now a single father in his 40s, he's trying to figure out what comes next. In the meantime, he pours his heartache and regret into the lyrics he sings for the wine bar crowd a couple of nights a week.

When a friend coaxes Brent out for a night of wine and music, he puts Brent and Jon on a collision course. Their chemistry is instantaneous. Jon gives Brent's battered body a much-needed remedial lesson in pleasure. And Brent gives Jon a reason to smile again.

Multiple reasons, actually. Neither man wants anything serious, but love has a habit of showing up whether it's welcome or not. No matter how hard they try, the two can't help having feelings for each other, even as life continues to throw them curveballs.

But they've both got baggage to unpack and hurt to move past, and if they can't leave their pasts in the past, they might just miss out on an amazing future.

Contains mature themes.

Love is really love.

Brent has lost his 'previous' life and now has to deal with chronic pain and a detoriating body. Protted by his best friend to join him on a night out. He sees a singer songwriter and is immediately attracted. Jon is a single dad, and massage therapist. These men have both lost a lot and are working on a relationship. I really enjoyed this book.
Narration is well done by both narrators 4,5 * both narrators are complementary to each other.

Not the same old same old - and I freakin' love it

L.A. Witt is an author with depth and intention. I went into this book after listening to two other books in the series- with expectations of similarity. I should have realized my error. The characters are both living in the aftermath of something devastating to their lives. And for Brent there is an aspect that I've never seen covered in m/m romance and I am HERE FOR IT. I wont get into it and spoil the book but I will say that Lori , as always .. doesn't disappoint . Be aware this is not a fabulous light hearted romp though the sex life of two people - but I cannot recommend it enough! Its amazing !

welll..... there's one thing that I didn't love. The narrator for Jon was way too breathy and "sighy" and frankly I felt like he made the character sound whiny .. about 50% in I downloaded the book on KU and read his chapters .

Great narration but….

Both narrators were great. But the story…. It felt like the characters had the same conversation over and over and over and over again. It got really old and annoying.

A little long-winded

First thing, I love the narrators on this book. Their styles worked well together and the characters were consistent through the changing POV’s. The story was a little repetitive… “I’m not good enough for him” over and over. The story was good with interesting nuances, esp. about pain management. But at least two chapters of angst near the end could have been omitted.
