Robby Dalton is the perfect all-American boy. He played the sports his father chose for him in high school, attended the college his father selected, and has worked hard to conform to his father’s macho views. But emotionally he doesn’t fit anywhere, and he can’t connect with a woman beyond a few uninspired dates. Robby’s not in the closet, because he’s never guessed he’s gay. Now he owns a small commercial construction company, and one night after work he runs into Savannah Meyers. He finds her fascinating and agrees to a date, thinking maybe this woman would be different.
But Savannah has her own agenda. She is looking for a love match for her roommate, Tristan Chartrand, whom she rescued from the streets years ago. He’s like a brother, and her only family, so she wants him safe and happy. Her plan seems to begin well, because when Robby meets Tristan, he’s surprised to find it’s Tristan he wants, not Savannah. But some people in Robby’s life don’t approve of Tristan’s lowly station in life, and some don’t approve of Robby being gay. Some people are full of hate and violence, and Robby and Tristan will need courage and strength if a loving future is to be part of the deal.
My View – Story:
Every now and again at Prism a reviewer will take a book from our extensive list to review and quickly figure the story is not for them. We have a very simple process where we can just ‘throw it back on the pile’. We are quite a diverse group in our tastes so there will always be somebody else to pick that book up again.
With an audio book it is not quite that simple.
The short of it is this book just wasn’t for me. After a few days consideration I decided not to finish something I was in no way enjoying only to rate it poorly. I would rather you read it yourself and make your own minds up. No two readers are the same; no two books by a specific author are the same. I recently finished another book by Mia and it blew me away.
My problem with this was that it was hovering on MMF and that is something I don’t read. Although the blurb very fairly mentions a female I hadn’t realised she would be such a large and sometimes odd part of the story.
This is just my own personal preference and not a reflection on the story as I only listened to 2 hours of the narration.
My View – Narration:
This was a new to me narrator. His narration was quite flat with little or no differences between characters.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
I have a number of paperbacks, most of which are signed, to giveaway. Over the between now (11 Mar 2017) and 31 Mar 2017, every comment on the blog (this post and all other new posts), will be entered to win 1 of these paperbacks. There are also some misc swag items, so there will be a few packs of these to give away as well.
Thank you so much for your support over the last 4 years. Prism will be closing its doors on 1 April 2017. All content will remain available, but no new content will appear after 31 Mar 2017. As such all request forms have been turned off. Again Thank you,
