This is not your average love story.
Ben Easton is not your average romantic hero. He’s a tattooed, badass guitarist in a band, working in a perfectly horrible dive bar in Camden Town. His life is good, and he’s totally unprepared for how one man will turn it upside down.
Stan isn’t your average heroine. As a gender-fluid man, he proudly wears his blond hair long, his heels sky-high, and his makeup perfectly executed. A fashion industry prodigy, Stan is in London after stints working in Italy and New York City, and he quickly falls for Ben’s devil-may-care attitude and the warm, soft heart Ben hides behind it. Beneath the perfect, elegant exterior, Stan has plenty of scars from teenage battles with anorexia. And it only takes the slightest slip for his demons to rush back in while Ben is away touring with his band, Ares.
With Ares on the brink of a breakthrough, Ben is forced to find a way to balance the opportunity of a lifetime with caring for his beautiful, impossible boyfriend.

This is one of those books that I've owned for a couple of years, that I've been intrigued by, but has never made it to the top of my TBR pile. Having Dan Calley, one of my favourite narrators, voicing the book gave me the push to read and listen to it. Wow...have I been missing out.
Ben and Stan are amazingly strong. In fact, the whole cast of characters is very well written, with Tone being my favourite. He is so real. The absolute biggie for me, though, is the acceptance that runs throughout this book for people who dare to be different. It has been many years since I lived in London, but this is what I always remember about it.
Dan Calley did a sterling job of pulling off both Ben and Stan's accents and maintaining them throughout the audiobook. He brings that much more to a story that is already perfect. I wish I could give more that 5 stars.
Oh...and even though I had my doubts about reading the follow up, The Lost Boy, I am so, so glad that I did.
