Summary

After divorcing the woman he'd been with since he was 17, Nick Fuller is starting over. He owns the restaurant of his dreams, and he's determined to meet new people, find new passions, and experience life to its fullest. Easier said than done - that is until he meets his new neighbor, Bryce Tanner.

Neither man has ever wanted another guy, but there's a connection between Nick and Bryce from the start - a spark they can't deny. They find themselves navigating an unfamiliar new world and dealing with unforeseen obstacles. Physical desire isn't enough, and now Nick and Bryce are at a crossroads. They have to decide which way to go: the easy path they've always followed or the one that's determined to trip them up at every turn.

Contains mature themes.

A great read

Where does Crossroads rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the best if not the best, certainly the best gay book I have ever read

Who was your favorite character and why?

The motor bike rider. I liked all the characters but he stood out for me especially when he went to his partner's mother towards the end

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Several but after my comments above I really do not want to spoil it for anyone

Any additional comments?

This is a nice steady easy listening book, gently written with an interesting story and well read. Some readers plough through with no feelings as to what is being read but this guy is very good, not too fast just with the right tempo for the story.

EXCELLENT BOOK

This book was excellent with a great story. Families who are accepting, others not so much. I won't say anymore as I would hate to spoil the book for future readers.

One last thing I should say about the book is that it this is almost a biography of my own life, and the change once my wife and I separated. The only difference being that it wasn't a neighbour. Friends took me out one Friday night to cheer me up. We went to a pub, my eyes met this hunk of a guy, his eyes met and locked on mine. Need I say that the rest is history and we have a Church wedding arranged for next summer, and I can't wait for our relationship to become legal. It makes things easier if anything happens to either of us.

I suppose you could say that this book is our story, with changes made to protect the innocent!

Two straight guys?

Overall I enjoyed it especially the family issues and the way stuff with family cropped up. Mothers seem to cause biggest issues it seems!!

Improve by Audio

Found the story 'okay' easy reading but a trifle ridiculous, an extra star for the sex not immediately being porn-star easy though. Characters are both likeable, banter is fun, families trope overkill.

Listening to the book made the difference. Seriously made a difference. Raised it a whole two stars. This is one definitely improved on by getting audio.

A real feel-good romantic read.

Two ultra decent seemingly hetero-sexual men discover a mutual love which overcomes family opposition and eventually blossoms into a full-blown sexual affair. Wow! The sex is pretty stand-up raunchy too. The reader is excellent and makes it spring to life. It kept me going well into the odd solitary night.

Double GFY - amazing narration

Double GFY people! Yes! It sounds so fantastical, but it is SO WELL DONE! Riley Hart is an amazing writer and she absolutely manages to pull this off.

She spends a lot of time building the relationship (as friends) between the two guys and then showing us that with an open mind (and an open heart) the two can explore their feelings for one another physically as well as emotionally.

I loved the similar yet different reactions each man received from their families. Though Nick had only ever been with one person, his feelings for Bryce follow a similar pattern and it’s totally reasonable that his mother would think he’s jumping the gun again. It’s also fair that Bryce’s family would think his impetuosity is throwing him into another doomed to fail relationship.

But… both men are being true to their authentic selves. Just like the motorcycles, Bryce KNEW Nick was THE ONE. And just like his cooking Nick knows his own heart and has to trust it where it concerns Bryce.

The sex is OFF THE CHARTS hot! But … so is the love. These guys aren’t afraid to reach for one another emotionally and it’s so very sweet and tender.

I loved this book – gave myself a book hangover as I had to read it all in one sitting because I couldn’t put it down at 2 a.m.

I can’t recommend this enough!


Audio

Lord! The heat is SCORCHING. Sean Crisden does an absolutely perfect job with this narration! The feels, the smexy scenes, the humor… just perfect! I absolutely adored the book and the audio only makes it BETTER!

I cannot recommend this any more!

Bravo, Sean Crisden!

Any additional comments?

I'll be honest, when I first read this story I wasn't one of its scores of fans. I just didn't get all that into the story. I mean it was *okay* - but nothing I'd shout from the rooftops over, you know?

Then I got the audio. And holy WOW does Sean Crisden BRING THE HEAT.

I *LOVED* EVERY SINGLE MOMENT OF THIS AUDIO BOOK! And it all boils down to Sean Crisden.

Bravo, sir. Bravo!

When listening to this I bought their burgeoning bisexualism, Nick and Bryce's love for each other, and the ups and down of navigating not only a new relationship, but one so far outside of your previous comfort zone. I bought it all - hook, line and sinker!

And I loved it.

Great GFY listen

This was a great double GFY listen. The story is basically the journey of Nick and Bryce who are neighbors and discover through their friendship they have feelings for each other. Since both have been straight all their life, this comes as a shock to themselves, their friends and family. Some family members are supportive and some have a harder time. There is a little angst, lots of family drama, but mostly about them coming to terms with the relationship and what it means. Overall a well written, realistic story with great, engaging characters. Sean Crisden puts in a great performance and really brings the characters to life.

Good for my first m/m book

This was my first m/m story. I’ve read several menage romances with various coupling scenarios, but I, myself am a hetero woman who sometimes likes a little something new to read. I was not disappointed with this choice!

Good writing. Realistic story line, with real trials, real feelings, hot love scenes, even for a vanilla, straight girl. Full of content, not just porn. Plenty of those scenes, but also realities of working class, family involved lives for both characters.

Narration.... it was okay. Believable feelings and dialogue, good steady tone, not sounding like reading straight from a script or irritating tone. I do however think it would have been better with two male narrators rather than one voice for all involved.

Just WOW!

If you could sum up Crossroads in three words, what would they be?

Sizzling, surprising, satisfying

Who was your favorite character and why?

I liked both the main characters. Nick for his slow and steady wins the race and Bryce for his 'hell yes, let's go' personalities.

Which scene was your favorite?

Well honestly, all their sex scenes. This is why I loved this story. I like M/M romances, but they are kicked up a notch for me when it's a straight guy /gay guy romance. Perhaps because there is discovery for the straight guy and I can identify with him? I don't know.
BUT, this is my first 2 straight guys falling for each other story and everything was new to each of them and the way they discovered each other and what they wanted to do and the things they said to each other was really riveting.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Two hearts, that's all it takes.

Any additional comments?

I can't recommend this story enough if you like M/M romance.. It's a sweet sizzling story with a gratifying epilog. I did enjoy the narration of Sean Crisden, I felt he had the cocky swagger of Bryce and the calmness of Nick down.. I wasn't crazy about the voices he uses for females, but it didn't impede the story for me at all.

The voice acting was really bad

The storyline was interesting. This is my first m/m romance and I’m definitely interested in exploring the genre. I wish I would have read this book as opposed to listening to it. The voice actor took me out of the moment. Whenever he tried to use speak in a woman’s voice it was hilariously bad. He also didn’t do some of the male voices well. Ill be sure to avoid any more books that he narrates.

I liked the learning aspect of the story, the only thing I didn't like was Momma.
