A Right and Wrong Story
Escaping an abusive relationship left Luke Preston anxious and spouting panic-induced poetry. Desperate for a fresh start, Luke accepts a job remodeling a tired old beach house for a professional soccer player and his model girlfriend. While his passion is literature, not sports, focusing on the renovations eases his anxiety. Until the job he signed up for turns out to be more complicated than advertised.
Sidelined with a serious injury, soccer star Michael Martinez decides his beach house is the perfect place to recuperate. Remodeling might be the diversion he needs to keep his mind off his busted knee. Falling for the pretty designer with some quirky habits wasn’t on the drawing board. Unfortunately, Luke didn’t build a big enough closet for Michael to hide in. Having a star-powered sports career used to be all Michael lived for, but he’ll have to reevaluate his plans and find the right words if he wants to build more than a beach house with Luke.
This was a cute story of coming out and love. Michael and Luke were fantastic together. They were a great fit, full of lust and snark. Their interactions were cute and had me chuckling to myself.
This was a typical athlete in the closet type tale, but the way the author had these men interacting really took away some of that trite feeling. These men were unique and really worked well together and that was the focus of this story. Yes the coming out was a big deal, but it took a back seat to the love forming between Luke and Michael. And then ending was fabulous and left me feeling all warm and fuzzy.
This was definitely a story for the comfort read pile when I need a pick me up. I will be listening to this one again.
This narrator did a fantastic job of capturing this story. He nailed the characters and effortlessly displayed their connection and interactions. His accents were exceptional and his narration really added to this story.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
