Paul Hannon moved to Tucker Springs for his girlfriend, but she’s left him with a house he can’t afford and a pantry full of useless gadgets. All Paul wants is to get back to normal, even if he’s not sure what that is anymore. When he wanders into Tucker Pawn for a gift to win her back, he meets El Rozal, pawn shop owner and all-around cynic.
El Rozal doesn’t do relationships, especially not with clueless straight boys still pining for their ex. El may make his living dealing in castoffs, but that doesn’t apply to men. Still, when Paul starts clearing out his old life, pawning kitchen equipment he never wanted in the first place, El is drawn to Paul in spite of himself.
Paul and El have nothing in common except a past full of disappointments. There’s no reason to believe the two of them could fit, but in El’s line of work, one man’s junk is another man’s treasure. When it comes to love, El and Paul may learn that secondhand doesn’t mean second best.
I loved this book in ebook format and I loved it again in audio. In fact, I think the audio brought a little something extra to an already enticing tale. I don’t want to spend a lot of time rehashing so I will just direct you to my original review which can be read here.
I can’t wait for the next audiobook to be released for this series!
Iggy Toma has that kind of voice that lends itself to emotion. Just reading with the proper inflection is all he really needs to do to make a story come alive. I enjoy listening to his narrations though sometimes the softer emotions were lost and his characters were not distinct enough to come across as unique. Overall though, this was another excellent narration.
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.
