Ellis Broad never imagined he would end up a single father before he turned twenty-nine. Then again, most of his expectations for the future evaporated when his husband of three years filed for divorce, leaving Ellis as their six-month-old son Harrison’s only parent. After the divorce Ellis hides, working from home on his small graphic design business so he can be a full-time dad. He succeeds until Zane Hadlin stumbles into his life.

Zane is everything Ellis desires and everything he fears at the same time. A former gang member from the wrong side of the tracks, Zane turned his life around after his older brother was killed in a shooting. Now an artist, Zane shows Ellis a path back into the world and all he’s been missing out on.

The only problem is, Ellis’s ex-husband hasn’t quite gone for good, and his digging into Zane’s past could drag up secrets no one is prepared to deal with.

My View – Story:

I reviewed this in e-book form when it was first released. You can read that review here.

I would like to take this opportunity to say that I still feel mostly the same way about this novel but after listening to it in audio form, I would like to take back what I said about this one being a bit slow. I really enjoyed this book in both forms, but the narration kept things consistently moving forward and gave it a better feel than the e-book alone.

This is a very pleasant and heartwarming story with a lovely outcome and I will definitely be listening to this one again when I am looking for something light and easy.

My View – Narration:

I enjoyed this audiobook. The narrators voices were clear and the emotion was well presented. I think this narrator added to my overall enjoyment of this novel and I will gladly listen to more of R.L. Davis’s narrations.
