Summary

Shane Wallace has made a decent life for himself in Last Chance. He built his own home on his mom's property to take care of her, owns an automotive repair shop, and when he wants to get laid, Portland isn't too far away. Not too shabby for the boy who spent his childhood getting bullied and feeling alone. Shane's content to leave his past behind him...until one of his childhood tormentors comes back to town.

Maxwell Sullivan never planned to step foot in Last Chance again. Here, he was Maxwell, a teen who suffered in silence while everyone thought he had the perfect life. Now, he's "Van", the erotic artist and photographer. He's only here to help his mom tie up some loose ends after his father's death and to apologize to Shane. After that, he's heading back to LA for good.

Shane never thought he'd have anything in common with Maxwell, but there's a depth to Van that surprises him. Van knows what it feels like to be alone. He sees Shane in ways no one else does. There's a shared connection neither can deny. Somehow, despite their rocky history, they get each other.

It's not long before the two are so drawn to each other that they tumble into bed - sometimes with Van's camera involved. Their chemistry in and out of the bedroom is undeniable. Except nothing is ever black and white. Shane can't leave his mom and Van's life is in LA. With two different lives pulling them in opposite directions, their picture-perfect ending might not be in the cards.

Prostrate!

If you’re going to narrate one of the best books written by this author and in this genre, please understand the difference between Prostrate and Prostate!

I am a believer that narration requires acting and attention to the story to convey how the dialogue should be read. This was not well done here.

On the plus side, he did incredibly well with women's voices.

Unexpected Love

Shane and Van’s story is about making peace with their shared past and family. It is hot, sweet and full of facing life’s challenges together for love.

Enjoyable read.

Despite the negative reviews, some rather scathing, I was curious to see why the positive reviews contradicted them so greatly. Well, I loved it and the narrator, not someone I have listened to before, actually did a great job of creating the small town atmosphere and characters.

bully & victim: An unexpected m/m romance

It's always intriguing to see a bully and his victim become an item. Max (the x-bully) returns... all mature, gay and total hunk. How can Shane say no to that? The story is way more involving than how I put it. I kept wondering how these two people would eventually come together... but they do! It's definitely worth the listen to find out their story... very beautifully written.

Enjoy!

MEH..

Story line was ok, Narrator was terrible, sex scenes were not hot at all and blasphemy and cursing every other sentence was totally unnecessary and took away from the flow of the story. very disappointed with this one. I guess they all cant be Sloan kennedy.. I think I'll go listen to Logan's need again and I suggest that Riley Hart does the same to get some much needed inspiration..

Hero doesn't learn.

Touching love story, quite hot in spots. The major, and probably devastating problem is that Van goes home and begs forgiveness of a boy he had harmed. He is given the grace of forgiveness and then even love, but he learns nothing from it. He doesn't see that he needs to forgive his parents just as his now-lover has forgiven him. I'm not comfortable with the idea that gays are self-centered.

Generally good but...

The (quite hot) romance between the two main characters develops convincingly and that’s good but Shane’s mother is a ludicrous concoction of neuroses and ends up being not just unrealistic but aggravating. I just couldn’t care after a while. If you skip over her it’s a better experience.

Perfect!!!

So sweet and lovable and hot and and sexy! I love a story with a rough and rocky start to the relationship and I love seeing the characters fall in love!!! This was so real and life like that I could empathize and sympathize with everyone in this story, yet it was steamy enough to make wanna get to the next love scene. It was absolutely beautiful I couldn’t ask for more in a story.
