Summary

A second chance to make up for the mistakes of the past. A second chance at love.

Troy

I’ve settled in at Fort Dale with a great job at the clinic on base, and I’ve even made a few friends. The nearby city offers all I need to enjoy myself on a night off, if you know what I mean.

I was just starting to relax and think everything would work out, when he walked into the clinic. Oscar Reyes, the man I fell in love with six years ago and who walked out on me because he couldn’t handle the thought of being out.

I never thought I’d see him again, and now, he’s here, tossing everything I thought I knew on its head.

Oscar

There aren’t many things in life that throw me off. Despite a bit of a temper, I deal with things quite well. The IED that took my arm and left me with a permanent limp was hard, but after six months, I’m managing.

Well, I was. Until I ran into Troy again. Just seeing him was enough to realize six years wasn’t long enough to kill my feelings.

When I walked away, it seemed right at the time, and my reasons haven’t changed. This time, I’m determined to stand by that decision. Until I went and kissed him.

Oscar and Troy would have sworn six years was enough to make them forget. It wasn’t. When both men find themselves stationed at Fort Dale, staying away from each other suddenly seems impossible.

Nothing has changed, including their feelings, it seems. But is it enough?

I love a good second chance story.

I’ve been binge listening to this series and I continue to be smitten with Michael Ferraiuolo’s performance of the books.

Troy and Oscar had a thing six years ago but Oscar broke it off because he wasn’t ready to come out – to his family or anyone else. Troy was left heartbroken and determined to just have a good time with guys after that; no more relationships for him. When Oscar comes back into Troy’s life it really shakes things up and soon, they are back at it again – but still in secret.

This story has a few tense moments when Oscar’s temper gets the better of him (not with Troy) but I can’t say more without spoilers. Second chance stories are a favorite trope for me and I really loved that these two guys finally were able to sort out their problems and be together.

I’ve really liked how the books in this series are connected but can be read as standalone stories. I actually didn’t realize at first that some of the stories take place at least a bit concurrently with each other. I’ll be moving on to the next book now.

as great as the ebook

The story is always 4-5 stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook. I can't listen to an audiobook without knowing the book, that's not possible for me.

The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. Michael Ferraiuolo is one of the top 5 narrators for me, I can listen without break and have no problems to follow.
I'm just not yet finish with the book, just over the half, but I listen enough to give a review.

PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings:

5* - very very good
it's like an A+

4* - very good and will be often re-listening
it's like an A

3* - it's more then a one-time-listening.
it's like a B

Awesome!

This book was an excellent addition to the series! The characters are always fun, interesting and spicy, the plot captivating and the connection between the characters addicting. Michael Ferraiuolo is an amazing narrator, and he excelled at this one as well. He brings something special, uniquely Michael to every piece he does. Every time I listen I feel as if I am listening to a completely different voice. Amazing at capturing a moment, and putting passion into his voice, Michael puts so much emotion into his work!

Fantastic addition

Romeo Alexander and John Harris created another great story for this series. Troy and Oscar had a great story, like that all the stories in the series is unique. Michael Ferraiuolo did an amazing job with the narration. Can wait for the next book in the series.
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

A very nice and well balanced story with excellent narration.

This was the first book I have read or listened to by either of these two authors, but not my first by the supremely talented Michael Ferraiuolo who I’ve yet to be disappointed by.

Here We Go Again is a charming story of a closeted, gorgeously grumpy soldier who had lost his love six years earlier through his own fear of admitting his sexuality.

In the interim, Oscar, very badly maimed, but physically recovering, has returned from active service to drive a desk. One of the first people he sees on his return is his lost love - out and proud, army medic, Troy, and still as fabulous as Oscar remembers him.

Neither of the men has got over the way Oscar walked away from their relationship, but the spark quickly re-ignites as soon as they meet again.

Nothing has changed, however, and although Oscar is more than happy to be with Troy he must still come to terms with his sexuality publicly if the two men are to have a long term chance together.

One of the aspects I particularly liked about this story was the camaraderie between the cast of male characters. The joking and leg pulling between the soldiers is funny, witty and realistic and all the more enjoyable to me as I am from an armed forces background.

If I have a criticism it is that there were no female characters. But that’s a small complaint given how much I enjoyed the story and superb interaction between the MC’s and secondary characters.

Very worth listening to, and as it’s the third in a series I shall certainly now listen to the first two.

The narration of the various male characters was professional and enjoyable. Each one clearly defined and the humour and leg pulling made all the more enjoyable by Michael Ferraiuolo’s excellent performance. Recommended.

Great story!

I have absolutely fallen for this series! This particular story may not have been as strong as the first two. But it was a great experience nonetheless.

If I had one criticism it would be that I found it difficult to tell the difference between present and past scenes at times. I'd typically be able to make the connection within a few lines but it did make the story a bit foggy to listen to at times.

Overall, a good experience!

Loved this second-chance story!

Oscar and Troy are great characters; I loved both Troy’s willingness to put the past behind their backs and Oscar’s strength to try again and overcome his fears.
Michael Ferraiuolo is nailing it with this series, I can’t get enough!

Second Chance Done Right

A fine story

While its no secret that I have enjoyed this series. I had trouble with this book. I freely admit that I didn't give up on it and kept coming back to it. well I finally buckled down and got this one done. while it is a good story in my humble opinion its not their best work. but I did enjoy Oscar's brother.

Good Story, Great Narration

I enjoyed this story about military men and challenges they deal with . I liked both characters, their vulnerability and determination as they work through the feelings. Narrator did a great job with the story and voices and made this a very good listening experience.

Bullets vs. The Closet Door

I think Oscar would take bullets and an IED over the crippling fear of opening the closet door every time. The chemistry between Troy and Oscar is undeniable. Even after years of not seeing each other they still banter like no time has passed. I really enjoyed this book, other than wanting to take Oscar's closet door off of its hinges of course. I also gained a new understanding of Troy that didn't shine through in the previous two books.

I liked how the story line of "I'm Straight Right" was overlapped with this book . Well done Romeo Alexander and John Harris. As always Michael Ferraiuolo was able to give depth to all of the characters in the book, even the side ones. I could always tell which one was speaking by his subtle inflections. I would definitely recommend.

Second chance

Story 4.5 Stars
Audio 5 Stars

Storyline:
Oscar is out of sorts. He is now stationed at Fort Dale perhaps for the unforeseeable future after an IED left him scarred, shrapnel in his hip and took off half of his right arm.

Troy is the one that got away, mainly because Oscar was too stupid to realize what he had. When he left Troy it was on unpleasant terms and of course the medic that is going to give him his clearance physical is going to be the guy that never left his heart. The two still feel the chemistry but no way is Oscar going to act on any impulses. He refuses to consider the options of being out. He fears being true to himself will come with too big a price tag. The best intentions are often forgotten In the heat of the moment and despite his concerns the pull towards Troy is too strong. Troy really cares about Oscar but how can he chance having his heart shattered again?

The two danced around their feelings until they had to confront reality. Soon the easy comfort in being with Troy is the balm for Oscar's battered life. Troy is a free spirit and can he manage to keep the relationship between them? I highly recommend this pulsating romance that was wonderfully portrayed with two equally stubborn but perfect for each other men. Happy Reading!

Audio:
Narrator, Michael Ferraiuolo
Mr Ferraiuolo kept a nice easy pace and his narration flowed smoothly. He effortlessly changed his tone for each character and it was easy to tell who was speaking. He added the perfect amount of emotion onto the more touching scenes. I absolutely recommend this wonderful audio version and hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Happy Listening!

Great story, steamy & sweet second chance romance

This was such a fun story. I’m so weird, that I started this series backwards. This was the first I’ve read/listened to. It can easily stand alone, but you may discover some spoilers sprinkled throughout. I quickly suspected, having read all of the blurbs, that these stories all operate on the same timeline, therefore overlapping. I really enjoy when a series does that. It gives your view of events more dimension and different perspectives. I fully intend to go back and listen to the other audiobooks. I’m fully intrigued.

The writing is top notch, and the story flows organically and smoothly. The banter between characters was great. I love the quick wit woven throughout the book. Troy was a delight. Oscar needs someone like Troy in his life, and vice versa.

Michael Ferraiuolo is a talented narrator. I love the voices he gave Oscar and Troy. He did a great job voicing the side characters as well, and did a great job differentiating between everyone.

Solid

Nice story leveled up by the fantastic michael Ferraiuolo. The chemistry between the two main characters is good. The reason for their original break up is ridiculous and you have to suspend your brain especially when you finally meet the brother who MC didn't want to tell he was gay and the brother is an understanding, intelligent shrink.

But he’s a rough and grumbly sexy hero and the book is sweet, hot, and worth a read. This is the first book I’ve read in this series. I would read more.

I always enjoy. . .

. . . men in uniform books! I’ll take ‘em however I can get them! Obviously, if I’ve gotten this far, I’ve enjoyed the other books in this series. This book was no different. There was just enough angst to keep me interested but not so much to make me pop a Xanax. I guess you could listen to this as a stand-alone, but I think you’d enjoy it more having read the others as some characters pop up here. I even sniff the possibility of another!

Now, this narrator: whew, always a home run! I haven’t listened to a bad narration from him so I knew that I would enjoy this book nonetheless.
