Publisher's Summary

Jamie's life is one big financial mess, and it really isn't his fault. However, the last thing he expected to find in the library was a Good Samaritan. He might have been suspicious of Guy's motives at first, but it soon becomes apparent that his savior is a good man who has been lucky in life and is looking to pay it forward. Guy being gay is not a problem. Jamie's not interested...or so he thinks.

Guy is happy to help Jamie, and the two men get along fine. But when Jamie's curiosity leads him from one thing to another, Guy finds himself looking at the young man with new eyes. What started out as a hand up is now something completely different....

    "Blurgh - really struggled to finish it"

    This was a real disappointment. I’ve been spoiled with all the good gay literature out there and this one fell horribly flat. Contrived predictable story and badly developed and executed. It seems like it’s been written by someone who badly wants to be an author, but their skills simply don’t match up to it. The only reason I finished it is because I prefer to ensure I’ve given a book a chance (unfortunately they end up being hours you NEVER get back).

    I find it frustrating that (especially with gay lit) people are eager to give 4/5 stars for everything. It means it’s really difficult to pick out the actually good books. I have to hunt through Goodreads reviews and find that if the rating on there is less than 4 then really consider if it’s worth spending a credit on Audible. No matter the genre I expect books to be engaging and make me buy into the characters and story - I don’t know why high standards should drop just because it’s gay literature. It does a disservice to the really good authors out there who write great books that should be celebrated.

    I’ve made a vow to myself from now on to make sure I write reviews now that the Audible app has made it easier to do so. Can’t complain about people’s rubbish rating standards if I don’t balance it out with my own reviews after all!

    Not sure if it was the narrator or editing, but the timing and gaps were off between sections so they roll together and it takes you a moment to realise that the scene has changed and it’s not a continuation from the previous sentence.

    "4 Stars"

    This is probably my favorite K.C. Wells story, and new to me narrator, Conner Goff, did a good job with the narration, without doing anything to particularly stand out or detract from the story itself.

    This is such a sweet, low angst, lovely little story that starts off with almost a fairytale-like premise, but just keeps evolving into a gorgeous, loving romance.

    Guy once had a benefactor who got him through some really tough times, and when he hears Jamie's plight he decides to "pay it forward" and do the same for Jamie.

    There was a lot I loved about this story, from the dual POV of both Jamie and Guy, to seeing Jamie come to terms with his growing attraction to Guy, to the fact the age gap wasn't really (for them) a factor. And the sex is scorching hot! Like, mega, melt-your-panties HOT.

    Side note: I know some people don't really like a May/December type romance, but their ages really aren't a big deal here. They are two adults who gravitate to one another and complete each other so well. So, if you're thinking of skipping because of the age thing - I'd highly recommend you rethink that.

    I really liked that not everything was sunshine and roses (Guy has some real pieces of work for a son, ex-wife, and ex-boyfriend), but it was handled so it enhanced the story rather than took anything away. How refreshing!

    I did wish I'd gotten a better idea of what Guy was doing in the library to begin with, and that Jamie's "coming out" had been on page, but the story isn't really affected by either thing not being shown.

    Goff uses distinctive character voices, has good timing and pacing, and made this an enjoyable listen. In the end, I had a great time and I know I'll be back to read it again.

    For the sticklers: Some of the POV changes were not readily apparent in the audio, and some words were pronounced a bit oddly for me, but most struck me as an alternate way to say the word rather than a mispronunciation.

    Well this one was not my cup of tea, but it was ok.
    I do love the older top younger bottom, it could have been better.
