Summary

Bow ties are cool...but secrets, not so much.

Behind Robert Emeny's cheerfully eccentric exterior lies a young heart battered and bruised by his past. He's taken a job in a village primary school to make a fresh start, and love isn't part of his plans. But then he's knocked for six - literally - by a chance encounter with the uncle of two of his pupils.

Sean Grant works in pest control, lives on a council estate, and rides a motorbike. Robert is an ex-public schoolboy from a posh family who drives a classic car. On the face of it, they shouldn't have anything in common. Yet Robert can't resist Sean's roguish grin, and passion sparks between them even after an excruciatingly embarrassing first date.

Too bad the past Robert's hiding from is about to come looking for him. His increasingly ludicrous efforts to keep his secrets are pushing Sean away - but telling the truth could make Sean leave him for good.

Great story!

Very enjoyable book! Perfect mix of humour, storyline and sexiness. Narrator sounded a bit like he was reading from a faulty autocue on occasion but was otherwise very good and brought the characters to life.

Didn't Catch Me

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Not Really. I spent the majority of the time waiting for something good to happen and trying not to scream because I hated the main character.

What could JL Merrow have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I didn't really feel that there was a strong connection between the leads. So, maybe if there was more connection that would've made it better for me.

Which character – as performed by Mark Steadman – was your favorite?

Sean was my favorite character.

Could you see Caught! being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Yes, but not as written.

Any additional comments?

I get where the author was going, but it just never really arrived for me.
