A Right and Wrong Story
Successful owner of an upscale boutique in fabulous West Hollywood, Brandon Good swears by his personal edict to “live in the present.” After a bad breakup, he agrees to dog-sit to keep his mind off his ex. Never did he expect the dog to belong to a man from his past, the only man to ever truly break his heart.
When Jake Westley relocates to join the WeHo fire department, the last thing he anticipates is reuniting with his secret high school love. Thrilled with the prospect of reconnecting with Bran, Jake feels no guilt in using his charming old dog as an unwitting matchmaker. As he and Bran rekindle their friendship, it becomes clear the intense attraction they once felt is stronger than ever. But as hard as they try to leave the past behind, painful memories resurface. Bran will have to confront his fears and consider the possibility that the man he swore was absolutely the wrong one might be perfect after all.
I really enjoyed this mostly light hearted second chance romance. This story exemplified the kind of second chance love story I am always looking for. Very rarely does an author give me what I am looking for but this one certainly did. It was not a love as second sight and then everything was perfect. This was a fun tale of former boyfriends getting to know each other again as friends and then falling into lust and then love. Time was taken to establish these men as they were at 29 instead of running with what they had in the past as if it were still accurate. Thank you sooooo very much for acknowledging that people grow up and change!
This story was mostly light hearted and low angst, but the little angst at the end was a whopper and totally made this story real. That little scare at the end showed that Jake and Bran were real people with real emotions and real fears. It showed an example of human nature winning out over reason. It pulled on my heartstrings and made my happy at their happy even better!
This is the type of story I will read again and again when I need my happy fix.
Michael Ferraiuolo did a good job with this narration. He was upbeat and really captured the spirit of the characters and the emotions. My only issue was that he was not consistent with the voices he used for characters in the previous book.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
