Summary

With middle-age looming, Greg offsets his boring day job with what truly feeds his soul: photography. The camera is an extension of himself where he exposes his passion for the intersect of pleasure and pain. However, the lens also acts as a barrier, protecting his subjects from the shameful mistakes of his past, and Greg is left isolated and lonely.

Emyr stands on the cusp of fame, but adulation and abuse are both eroding his confidence, and one night, at the river’s edge, he seeks solace in the rain, hoping to hide his tears.

The photographer and the virgin rock star share an accidental connection on that dark, drizzly night. When Greg invites Emyr back to his hotel room, no strings attached, the young man should have bolted. Instead, an odd sense of trust allows him to follow Greg’s lead.

When the camera comes out, Emyr learns the stage isn’t the only place he loves to perform as Greg touches something inside him that rarely awakens. Faced with a beautiful, talented boy whose soul is as lonely as his own, will Greg be able to face his past and come to terms with it, or will he run from the connection he so desperately desires?

Enjoyed this

I haven't read any of Bey Deckard's book, although they come highly recommended, and have a couple sat on my Kindle waiting for my attention.

I will also say I am not really a fan of the whole "daddy" trope, but took a chance of this one and was really pleasantly surprised, although this didn't feel to be too heavy on the daddy side of things, it was more a sexual thing than a 24/7 lifestyle choice, or that's how it came across.

The storyline was explored well and attraction between Emyr and Greg was intriguing through their initial chance meeting which led to so much more and was worth the wait.

Add in Dan Calley's soft lilt and slight Welsh accent for Emyr, counterbalanced with a deeper, gruffer tone for Greg and you have a total winner in my mind, or ears as they were very happy with this combination.

One to put on the repeat listen list for sure :-)
