Summary

Everyone admires Michael Lamont for being a nurse, but his part-time work as a gay sex surrogate not only raises eyebrows, it's cost him relationships. Michael is small, beautiful, and dedicated to working with people who need him. But what he really wants is a love of his own. He spends most of his time reading science fiction, especially books written by his favorite author and long-time crush, the mysteriously reclusive J.C. Guise.

James Gallway's life is slowly but inexorably sliding downhill. He wrote a best-selling science fiction novel at the tender age of 18, while bedridden with complications of polio. But by 28, he's lost his inspiration and his will to live. His sales from his J.C. Guise books have been in decline for years. Wheelchair bound, James has isolated himself, convinced he is unlovable. When he is forced to do a book signing and meets Michael Lamont, he can't believe a guy who looks like Michael could be interested in a man like him.

Michael and James are made for each other. But they must let go of stubbornness to see that life finds a way and love has no limitations.

Easy to listen to...

Really enjoyed this sweet, sexy story. I think the main characters had great chemistry and it kept the story interesting. The narrator spoke really clear and kept in character for each role. I would definitely read/listen to more from this author.

Sugar and Spice!

Would you listen to The Mating of Michael again? Why?

I probably would, because of the diversity of the two main characters

Who was your favorite character and why?

Michael. He was such a caring, thoughtful and loving character. The world would certainly be a nicer place if there were more Michael's in it!

What does Michael Stellman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Michael Stellman definitely enhanced the story and added to my enjoyment

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Initially, no, as it took me a little while to get into the story, but certainly by the half way point I was hooked.

Any additional comments?

As much as I enjoyed this story I have to confess that it's not my favourite Eli Easton book. It's good, but not up to the standard of 'The Lion and The Crow'
