Summary

When Felix lands a job taking care of a man recovering from severe injuries, he thinks his life may have just turned around. Anything has to be better than the place he's leaving. There's something about Lane that draws Felix to him and makes him question if this place could finally become a home for him. But when someone begins stalking Felix, he is left to question who Lane is and what actually happened to him.   

Together, Felix and Lane will be forced to see just how far they will go to protect each other. Being chased by cops, kidnapping a man, and breaking into a drug operation seems to be his normal since arriving in Lane's life. Felix may be out of his element, but one thing he is sure about is that he doesn't want to leave, even if it costs him his life.

Brilliant story, expertly performed

When I read the book the first (of many times), I was startled by the lack of ‘kid glove’ treatment Felix gave Lane. Don't get me wrong, it was funny as hell, but wow!, it's rare to read a story where the disabled MC is treated as they deserved; in this case, a bit meanly (Lane was a bit of a dick at first).
The sarcastic humour and banter is genuinely funny and the crime/suspense kept me engaged.
The audio, as performed by Joel Leslie, does not disappoint*. He continues to wow his listeners with his talent. In this case, he brought Felix to life, capturing his snark perfectly. JL also captured Felix's vulnerability and, at times (few), his sensitivity; especially when dealing with Lane. It goes without saying that the overall performance was great, but wow, did he nail the essence of Felix.
This will be an audiobook that I'll relisten to often. Loved it!

*(except that there were very slight pauses between sentences – an editing issue)

What a wonderful surprise

I didn’t expect much from this book going in, but it turned out it was a hidden gem. Exciting action, good relationship and I actually found myself laughing out loud many many times which was completely unexpected. This is so much better than the usual boring trope out there, and it was refreshing to have a proper plot that hooked me so much that I listened to it all on my headphones in one day. Shame there’s not more from this author on Audible but I hope there will be soon.

I'm going to keep this one in the Favorite pile

What do you get when you mix a bad ass motherfucker who was in the military and is used to doing undercover work but is now forced to rely on others and a reformed pick pocket that is used to being dismissed but is determine to do his job? You get the amazing masterpiece that is this audio book.

Okay so I’ve never read anything by this author before and by the cover art and the summery I went into this thinking that it was going to be a heart wrenching drama filled with lots of hurt/comfort and undying confessions of love. I did get all that but unexpectedly I also got so much humor and amazing characters that I did not want to put this book down.

Felix is a young man trying to be someone and finding his purpose in life. He comes from a though childhood filled with pain and drugs where the only comfort he got was none existent but now he’s found someone he doesn’t want to abandon him. Lane has to deal with his entire world imploding and needing help with the most basic of things but refusing to ask for it. This story could have gone a lot of ways but I’m so freaking in love with the way the author decided to take it.

Felix is a little shit and used to seeing life in shades of gray, what’s a little lying and a little stealing here and there? He’s a horrible cook and mean as hell when he constantly makes a blind man have to work for the assistance but Lane probably wouldn’t have it any other way. 10/10 recommend. The steamy scenes are great, the dialogue is hilarious, and the dog kind of steals the show halfway into the book.

Lol please give this one a try as I know I’ll be adding it to my pile of favorites.

delightful

Loved it.
Alice Winters is a new author for me and I'll be happy to pick up further titles in audio.
Joel Leslie doing what he does best - absolutely nailed both the sarcasm and humor of the characters and the suspense and tension in the story to make this a very entertaining listen.

Great Listen!

This was my first Alice Winters read and, honestly, I bought the audio book because I am a HUGE Joel Leslie fan. It was an excellent decision. It's a fast paced read filled with action and humor.

Laugh Out Loud

I have honestly never laughed as much as I did listening to this book! This is my first time listening to this author but it definitely won’t be the last. Felix’s awkward and bold personality complimented lanes stubbornness so well! I felt like the ending was a tad bit rushed and some of the situations they found themselves in were so easily resolved but overall bravo. Thumbs up for Alice winters!

Editing audio could be better

Joel did a pretty good job performing, but the pauses were annoying.... "he said." Fun story, though. Good job, Alice. Thanks for the entertainment.

A Bookload of Fun

I read this book on Kindle and was very much looking forward to the Audible release, especially when I heard that Joel Leslie was narrating. I was NOT disappointed. It was great! I laughed out loud, and often. The two main characters, Felix and Lane, are a lot of fun, particularly Felix, whom I LOVE. Excellent read, Alice!

Joel Leslie, as usual, was awesome. Each character's voice is unique. I never had to struggle to understand who was speaking. Narrator isn't a big enough word for Joel. He is a voice actor and a damned good one.

This book is laugh out loud funny and impossible to turn off. The narration by Joel is great. This will definitely be a book I'll listen to again.
