Summary

Betrayed the night before his wedding by the supposed boy of his dreams, Ethan Robinson escapes the devastating fallout by going on his honeymoon alone to the other side of the world. Hard of hearing and still struggling with the repercussions of being late-deafened, traveling by himself leaves him feeling painfully isolated with his raw, broken heart.

Clay Kelly never expected to be starting life over in his forties. He got hitched young, but now his wife has divorced him and remarried; his kids are grown, and he's left his rural Outback town. In a new career driving a tour bus on Australia's East Coast, Clay reckons he's happy enough. He enjoys his cricket, a few beers, and a quiet life. If he's a bit lonely, it's not the end of the world.

Clay befriends Ethan, hoping he can cheer up the sad-eyed young man, and a crush on an unattainable straight guy is exactly the safe distraction Ethan needs. Yet as the days pass and their connection grows, long-repressed desires surface in Clay, and they are shocked to discover romance sparking. Clay is the sexy, rugged man of Ethan's dreams, and as the clock counts down on their time together, neither wants this honeymoon to end.

Contains mature themes.

So emotional

Warning do not start this book when on the way to work!! I did and went into work fuming at the betrayal!! I loved Ethan and loved the way the author portrayed his hearing loss, I agree with others that the story slow down about the half way point but never to the degree that i thought about stopping it.

I loved Clay and his bumbling attempts at making Ethan feel at ease and looking at his own sexuality. Joel’s narration was good as usual, his voice for each character were district and love his female voices.

Good, even if slow at times

I enjoyed this book even though the pace slowed down too much at times. The characters were well developed and I believed their relationship so I was able to forgive my attention drifting around the middle at one point. The narration was great (as always with Joel Leslie) which helped bump up the rating too.

I loved it, i wish i could read a book narrated by Joel Leslie every day, he is my all time favorite narrator! And Keira Andrews wrote a beautiful story, i really like her use of words, it makes it easy to immerse myself in the life of her characters. Thank you both for making my life a bit easier for a few hours!

Just a Great story!

Truly lovely, I enjoyed every minute! Best listen I’ve had in months. Not the typical filth these books usually have to offer, but a really special love story.

Pure perfection!!! A++

Normally I don’t care for an age gap storyline. This story was awesome from start to finish. As always, the narration by Joel Leslie was tremendous. A must listen!
