Publisher's Summary

Sometimes holding on means letting go.

After giving up on his career as a country singer in Nashville, Christopher Ryder is happy enough performing at the Smoky Mountain Dreams theme park in Tennessee. But while his beloved Gran loves him the way he is, Christopher feels painfully invisible to everyone else. Even when he's center stage he aches for someone to see the real him.

Bisexual Jesse Birch has no room in his life for dating. Raising two kids and fighting with family after a tragic accident took his children's mother, he doesn't want more than an occasional hook-up. He sure as hell doesn't want to fall hard for his favorite local singer, but when Christopher walks into his jewelry studio, Jesse hears a new song in his heart.

    "I don't know what to say ...."

    I read this book a week or so ago, and I promised I will write it review when I will listen to this book again because I couldn't contain and explain all my emotions.
    how could I? this book is incredible! marvelous! unbelievable! and maybe even undescribable!!! you may think I'm exaggerating' but believe me and I read a lot of males and males books...but this book it's not a simple romance book .no, it's much more!
    the feelings are in every step, in every breathing, in every syllable.
    the words are flying and touching your soul... you can feel the understanding, the love, the excruciating pain of each and every character. even the annoying characters had their own feelings , they're on truth, and their own beliefs.
    I felt like I was part of this book I didn't just heard or read a story... no it was just undescribable.
    you may think I keep pronouncing the same words , but believe me I'm not !I'm truly fascinated...
    The lyrics of the songs we're so pretty the kids we're so sweet and so mature for their ages...
    the main couple oh I can't describe how sweet and indulging and in love they were...
    PS the steamy parts we're definitely very very stimmy!!!
    John solo was amazing I could feel every move they made, every breath they took!! and every freakin moan... I think this is the best book I read and heard this year I truly hope I could hear much more books from this genius author and from this amazing narrator 😍😍😍

    "Loving, losing and loving again"

    This is a great story of loving one person and then losing them while learning to love again as well! Christopher and Jesse find peace with each other and this whole audio book had me on the edge of my seat and near tears too many times while driving. It would be way to easy to spoil this story so I'm going to be very vague about the happenings without just giving you a synopsis. Just know that Jesse and Christopher have some struggles to find their HEA -- and even when you think it's a done deal, things sneak in and cause havoc again. Just take some time and listen to their story. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

    Story
    "Loved Chris and Jesse's scenes"

    At almost fifteen hours this is a long story with many supporting characters and plenty of backstory to discover about Chris and Jesse that has a bearing on their future together. It’s not all dumped in one go, but is subtly woven into the narrative.

    Anticipating Christopher finding out the truth about Marci’s vegetative condition overshadowed their early relationship for me as I knew there’d be some fallout from this. And when he realised, I loved the angst that followed. It was from this moment on that I was gripped by the story and I particularly enjoyed the second half of the story. It culminated in a wonderful ending with some unexpected happenings.  In fact, I went back to listen to the first half again knowing the direction the story was headed, and appreciated the events and characters more as a result.

    This is a story of finding your family and accepting who you are, who you love and want to spend your life with. There are some very touching moments, as well as some scenes that will no doubt make you angry with the characters. Christopher is a wonderful, considerate, caring person, and the way his parents and his ranting step-father treat him is heartbreaking.

    Chris and Jesse are perfectly matched and fall swiftly for each other. I was surprised they hadn't really encountered each other beforehand. Luckily, they manage to snatch some alone time and their sex scenes are smoking hot. The parent in-laws are great, as are Joe and Gareth who are supportive of Chris. I also liked Jesse’s children and how Brigit gradually comes to accept Chris. Her paper crane project definitely tugged on the heartstrings.

    So yes, it’s a long story with lots going on, but the main relationship is given plenty of focus and time to develop. The story is well written and the character interaction is in depth and excellent throughout.  The dialogue comes across as real and the conversation at the Thanksgiving meal had me laughing out loud at one point.

    John Solo’s narration is superb. He gives each character their own distinct voice that matches their personality and he portrays the emotion perfectly within each scene and with such feeling. I particularly liked the sexy, husky voice he gave Jesse. The descriptive writing built up a clear image of each setting and with John’s storytelling it made for easy and very enjoyable listening.

    "Loved It"

    I previously read this book, loved it and was honoured to receive a copy of the audio from the author to review.
    First off, I loved this story!! I loved the characters, loved the angst, loved the heat. This story is sexy!!!
    John Solo did an excellent job narrating this story.
    His speech was clear and the dialogue was engaging. He pulled every emotion out when narrating.
    I truly enjoyed listening to this book!!

    "Smoky Romance"

    Overall I really enjoyed this book but as someone that lives near Gatlinburg I'm impressed with the accuracy of the places mentioned. However... the mispronouncation of Sevierville made me CRAZY, it is pronounced the same as severe just with a Ville on the end. The second is the ending, if it was written with intentions of another book it's all good, if not I would like to have better closer. All an all the book made me laugh, cry and feel just about every other emotion there is. Hopefully there is a second book on the way.
