Publisher's Summary

Madden Polunin is happy. He loves his person, Private Investigator Evan Slater, his job as a defense attorney, and he doesn’t mind living in Evan’s small house, even though he comes from an old-money family on Vert Island. Evan is everything Madden wants out of bed, and in it, except he’s missing one thing: gentleness.  

Evan knows he’s been letting Madden down, or at least that Madden wants more from him. The learning curve to give Madden what he wants might be sharp, but not impossible to handle. Can Evan find some courage and take the plunge? With Madden at his side, anything’s possible.

A sweet and fun novella spinoff!

Evan and Madden were such an amazing couple.
Their relationship gave me all the feels and I loved their dynamics.
This is a short novella spin off from Bent, Not Broken but can easily be read as a standalone as well.
Kaeomakana Tiwanak has done an amazing audio delivery which made this all the more fun to listen to.

Misled by 5 stars

This is terrible. I’m not sure what is worse - the narration or the story. The voices and accents are not good. I don’t understand how this is so highly rated.

fun.

Not a lot of story line but that's kinda the point with this story.
Narration was good with voices but sometimes was still hard to tell which character was talking.

Great story

Loved this book and listening to it was amazing. This is book two and in this story we see how Madden and Evan are going. Things are going well but something is missing in there relationship. They work together and things turned to the better. This was a great short listen.

Effort and initiative

I loved that Evan cared enough to push his own boundaries to do something out of his comfort zone and expertise, because he loved Madden that much. Even better, when Evan finds out he enjoys making Madden happy in this way. Sweet couple. Warm and fuzzies all over. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a good job.

Gay version of the odd couple

Madden & Evan are at first, an unlikely couple, but Madden is one of those people, a force of nature, he’s hard to dislike, and he manages to crack the impenetrable armour that Evan has built around himself. The story is short but funny, sexy and sweet, though it took me a while to get over my dislike of the narrators voice, and he clearly couldn’t do a British accent, even though there’s roughly 50 main ones to choose from. He did manage a passable Irish one though🙂
