One Thing: Book Two
Dustin Davis spent years wishing for a prince but kissing frog after slimy frog. When he sees Archer Kyriakides for the first time, Dusty thinks his luck has finally changed. Archer could be it. The One. But their hot and cold romance leaves Dusty confused: why does it feel right one moment and wrong the next? It doesn’t make sense—until the day Dusty meets Archer’s identical twin, Asher, and realizes he’s been seeing them both.
Asher Kyriakides dreams of being a fashion photographer, but he’s stuck with a job he hates and an irresponsible playboy brother whose habits drive him absolutely insane, especially when he finds out Archer is dating the cute little blond Asher can’t seem to forget. Torn between loyalty and desire, Asher does nothing but try to warn Dusty away.
But when Archer finally goes too far, Dusty turns to Asher for comfort, and Asher knows he can’t refuse. It isn’t long before they realize they’re falling fast, but more than one thing stands in their way, not the least of which is Archer, who isn’t quite ready to stop being a thorn in his brother’s side.
I love this story and this series. I fell in love with Dusty in book one when I watched his heart get broken when Eric and Ru got together. In One True Thing, I was so happy to see him finally get his own true love.
But his story was not an easy one, mostly because Dusty was too optimistic and too trusting and allowed himself to be put in dangerous situations in the name of no longer being lonely. And Asher’s story was just as ugly for almost the same reasons, only his trusting nature was towards a brother who didn’t deserve such loyalty. The trials and tribulations these men faced were what made this story real and relatable.
And together, Dusty and Asher were wonderful and supportive and formed a bond that will last through anything. Their story was at times frustrating, at times emotional, and all around loving. I am glad I got to revisit their love in this audiobook.
This narration review is not easy for me because while I felt it was good, it was not what I was hoping for. I felt the narrator in book one did a fantastic job with these characters and was very upset that he was not the narrator for this story as well. I think Rusty Topsfield did a good job with this one, but every time Eric or Ru popped up, I cringed because the voices were so very different and not what I wanted to hear. I was able to enjoy this narration when it was the rest of the characters, but I still wished the narrator had remained the same. I also deducted points for the recording repeating a good portion of chapter 1 twice.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
