Publisher's Summary

Chris Lomax swore he’d never return to Saugatuck, but nothing could have prevented him from coming home to the small lakeside town, not once he saw the news about the fire - and Hunter, the only person ever to steal his heart. He must make sure Hunter is okay, and service dog Lucy could lend a helping paw.

Firefighter Hunter Drake never expected to see Chris again. He thought he’d lost his best friend for good when Chris jilted Hunter’s sister at the altar. But right now Hunter needs to focus on his recovery. What he doesn’t understand is why Chris came back - and why he won’t leave.

The two men get to reconnect, but spending so much time together leaves Hunter confused and uncertain, especially when Chris reveals he’s both bi and in love with him. Hunter’s not sure what to do about that last part.

What Chris wants is for Hunter to forgive him.

What Hunter needs is to stop living in denial.

Yeah, as if it was ever going to be that easy...

Sweet Story

This was a sweet but heartbreaking story. You could feel the emotions that each of the characters were going through. John made you feel equally sad, hurt and angry and Hunter for the way he treated Chris. But you understood why he acted that way. We also felt hurt, sad and angry at Chris for the way he chose to deal with things in his past. Watching these two men come to terms with their feelings while also helping Hunter get the help he needed for his trauma was great.

Friends to Enemies to Friends to Lovers

Chris left Saugatuck 5 years ago the night before his wedding. Why? Bc he was in love with his fiance's brother Hunter. Best Friends since childhood Hunter is devastated when Chris leaves. When a fire injuries Hunter after he saves a boy from a fire Chris takes time off his dog training job to come make sure he's okay and to make amends with everyone including his parents. He's shocked when his parents already guessed his reasons for leaving and even more so when his ex-fiancee welcomes him with open arms and has defended Chris to the town in his absence. The only one who doesn't want to accept Chris back? Hunter. Through some chances of fate Chris winds up staying with Hunter and over a week they become closer again but not everything is great for Hunter who Chris suspects has PTSD but Hunter refuses to acknowledge it.

I really love this book. It's not a hot and steamy book. It's angsty and has some drama between Chris and Hunter. it's forgiveness, heart breaking, healing, and discovery. All while Chris's dog Lucy makes sure all the humans stay in check.

Lovely simple love story

Sometimes, amongst all the angst these days, a simple love story is just what I’m looking for. And at the heart of this book lies a love story.

Chris left his bride Calleigh at the alter, abandoning his life and moving away without giving anyone a forwarding address. His reason? Although he cared for Calleigh, he was in love with her brother. Knowing he would see Hunter day after day but not be able to have him was too much to bear, so he left.

Five years later, tragedy strikes Hunter and Chris feels compelled to return. He brings his dog Lucy. Chris is a service dog trainer and he fell in love with Lucy so she never formally graduated. But she’s as empathetic and smart as any working dog, and she goes to work on Hunter. Maybe if Chris can’t break down Hunter’s walls, Lucy might be able to.

Chris wants Hunter to forgive him and Hunter wants Chris to leave him alone. Plenty of conflict there. And although both men are stubborn, cracks in the walls appear. There are heavier themes in this book but they are handled brilliantly, as I would expect Ms. Wells to do. Her books always deliver an emotional story with a deft touch and this book is no exception.

John Solo narrates many of Ms. Wells’ books and I’m so pleased because he does a great job of bringing these characters to life. So if you’re looking for a simple and true love story, this just might be the book for you.

Second Chance Love Story Beautifully Done

This story of a second chance romance is deftly handled by the author, K.C. Wells and was brought to life by narrator John Solo. This is the first book narrated by Mr. Solo that I have had the pleasure of listening to. He has a wonderful gift as he expresses the emotions of the characters that run the gamut from depressed loner to joyful declaration of love. I particularly like how the book's author did not lean on stereotypes. The jilted bride was not a vindictive screaming witch and the main character's parents didn't call him hateful names and kick him out. The book is actually quite lyrical as it flows. Chris, our main protagonist, is a young man struggling to be true to himself and win the love of his life. Hunter, also a young man of extraordinary appeal, is at a low point in his life and unsure about trusting Chris. I super recommend this book and I commend the production but especially want you to hear this story as presented by Mr. Solo It is an amazing blend of author and narrator not to be missed.

Slow Burn OFY

This was a very sweet book, the angst level was low (in my opinion) and it was very much a SLOW BURN Friends to Lovers OFY/GFY Romance.
The narration by John Solo was fantastic, full of emotion! He is a narrator I like a lot but here he really brought a few moments to life with exquisite detail. He was a great pick to narrate this book.

Chris and hunter share a long history and painful memories surrounding the reason for Chris leaving years before. I enjoyed Chris's care for his dog, his friendship with his Ex-fiance' (Hunter's sister).
The book took the time needed to deal with all the issues Hunter and Chris had to sort out between them before diving into a relationship. It was a nice surprise as most of K.C Wells's book tend to be high in steam and kink.
Despite the hardships they faced, Hunter and Chris figured things out, had the support and love from friends and family and a HEA. And, if it was a bit too easy at times, it was still sweet.

I really enjoyed listening to John Solo narrate this story of how Chris was looking for redemption and found his first secret love in need of help but also finding that Hunter loved him too. The story and journey each man takes was wonderful . John Solo gave an excellent performance and was easy to listen and fall into the story.

Enjoyable Listen

I did enjoy this story, but it didn't have the same pull to me as other books - but hey, everyone is different, so what some people didn't enjoy so much other people will love and vice versa.

I think I had a problem relating to Chris, there was just something about him that just didn't gel with me. I did love Lucy though!! I think Chris came across as someone who was hiding who he was when he left town before, as he just wasn't honest with the people he cared about, not even his own parents. Therefore, I could totally understand the distrust from people when he went back to town.

Now Hunter, he was suffering PTSD, and I think this is something else that is only usually portrayed in books with Veterans, but here we see that it is a serving fire fighter who has this, and his depression is really affecting him. I think that the way Hunter was written was incredible, it was like being with him and going though all the emotions he had.

I totally loved the narration of John Solo, I knew who was talking and when, and at the scenes with Hunter's depression and him sobbing were brilliant.

All about hope and forgiveness...

This sweet story is all about redemption, forgiveness and hope....
This is such a heartwarming story with a town full of colourful and fabulous characters.
5 years earlier Chris made an unforgivable mistake in his hometown, and had no option but to leave , in disgrace. He broke his fiancee's heart, his best friend's heart and his parent's hearts. All in all Chris was in a whole heap of mess, so he stayed away, for 5 whole years....
An unexpected event brings Chris rushing back to town, the minute he heard that his friend's life was put in danger all thoughts of fear and shame left in a rush. He knew he had so many people he had to face, but he had a secret weapon, Lucy his Alsation. She always knew who needed her the most, and how to diffuse any awkward situation.
Chris had never dreamt that his homecoming would turn out like it did.
Why had he stayed away so long ?
These beautiful people loved him regardless,
But best of all , how did he not know how the love of his life had always felt about him, for all those years.

Kc Wells always writes these small town, deep love stories effortlessly, and John Solo always brings everything to life magically. Another beautiful story that will leave it's mark in your heart.

Enjoyable second chance, friends to lovers romance

KC Wells is one of my favourite authors when it comes to a sweet, slow burn romance. Here for you sees Chris return to town several years after leaving his best friend's sister at the alter. Unfortunately he left his heart with Hunter, not Callie as everyone would have thought. On his return to town there are surprises in store with how his parents and Callie react to him and revelations about himself. The one man he wants to reconnect with makes is hard for him but it's oh so worth it in the end.
The is a lot of emotion going on throughout the story for both men - guilt, fear, relief, love. As well as dealing with Chris's return, Hunter is dealing with the physical and mental aftermath of a rescue during his job as a firefighter. The writing really shines a light on mental health and men's perceptions on how they should deal with what they are feeling.
I love all of the characters involved in this book but a special place is held for Lucy, Chris's beautiful golden retriever who is so aware and helpful to those around her, and Callie, Hunter's sister. She has a remarkable outlook on everything that has gone on and plays an important role in how things pan out for Chris especially, on his return to town.
Definitely a recommended read/listen.
John Solo gives a wonderful performance for all involved and he really carries the story very well through the intense highs and lows that Chris and Hunter go through, individually and together as friends and a couple as they move forward to a HEA.

as good as the ebook

The story is always 4-5 stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook. I can't listen to an audiobook without knowing the book, that's not possible for me.

The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. It took me a little bit, to come into the narrator, but at the end, it worked. I only have to take a few breaks between. I'm just not yet finish with the book, I’m over the half, but I listen enough to give a review.

PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings:

5* - very very good
it's like an A+

4* - very good and will be often re-listening
it's like an A

3* - it's more then a one-time-listening.
it's like a B

Sweet & Romantic, John Solo is Wonderful

I was in such a mood for something sweet, and K.C. Wells’ Here For You was just the ticket. A slow burn, hurt/comfort romance, with a hard won (and very satisfying) happily ever after, Here For You includes some interesting family dynamics and a truly terrific dog.

For me, the best part of this story is the depth K.C. Wells goes in exploring these characters. The guilt Chris has lived with after leaving his fiancée at the altar, abandoning his friends and family, and moving across the country has really done a number on him. Chris has been unable to establish any deep relationships and instead focused on his career training rescue dogs.

Hiding the truth of his love for his best friend, Hunter has lived with feelings of guilt and shame. After a traumatic event, Hunter’s struggling with PTSD and depression, and has closed himself off from family and friends.

I know this all sounds pretty heavy, but Ms. Wells keeps the mood hopeful and uplifting. The characters are pretty open about their feelings, and the supporting cast is colorful, kind, and helpful. Filled with plenty of feel good moments, Here For You is a real feel-good romance.

Recently released on audio, John Solo delivers a wonderful performance. There’s a whole range of emotions in this story and Mr. Solo makes the most of it.

An unassuming book with a whole lot of heart

I went into this audio thinking it would be the usual Friends to Lovers, second chance romance. And on some levels it is, but I also feel there is a little extra to this book.

The story is about Chris and Hunter and their journey from best friends who became estranged to supportive Romantic partners. The road to the HEA is by no means smooth, but the story manages to stay away from the usual homophobia and family disapproval for drama effect to deliver a warm heartfelt love story which still tugs on your heart strings.

I love the fact that you are able to see both Chris and Hunters families how they interact with the main characters directly and with each other. I like the world building the town and the people who live there. I just love this warm, funny loving story and I especially love Lucy.

I think John Solo narration is as always spot on bring each character alive, without going OTT on certain characters(could so easily be done)

Highly recommended listen 💖💖

Wonderful Story & Listen🎧 Enthralling & Heartfelt!

I thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful story, it captured both my attention and my heart from start to end. K.C. Wells is a gifted author, her storylines and characters are realistic, easy to relate to and connect with. I love her ability to bring you along side the characters allowing you to see what they see and feel what they feel. I adored the two lead character Chris Lomax and Hunter Drake, secondary characters were pretty awesome too, a great support cast. Chris left town after leaving Cally, his intended bride at the alter. Chris could not go through the wedding, he broke Calla’s heart and pissed off her family, including her brother Hunter, who was his best friend and in love with. Chris, an established service dog trainer saw in the news that Hunter, a firefighter was injured during a fire and rescue. He needed to see him, he took his dog Lucy with him and returned to his hometown. He has not been home and needed to make amends with those he hurt when he left so abruptly. Hunter was not that happy to see him but he was dealing with a lot. Chris has a surprising ally who helped him get back in Hunters life. Everyone could use such an admirable person in their life, one who forgives and looks out for their loved ones. I loved how everything plays out in this book, the story is beautifully plotted and there is never a dull moment. There is plenty of drama, angst, lots of heartfelt and emotional moments and a great friends to lovers second chance romance. K.C. does a great job raising awareness about mental health, PTSD, guilt, depression and mentions suicide, she handles it with care while keep it all real. Thank you for this wonderful story and the emotional rollercoaster ride.

John Solo is a talented narrator and voice artist. He is perfectly casted to bring these characters to life, humanize them, giving each their own voice and personality. His portrayal of each character is perfection, making them sound just as I picture them to sound. You could hear how much heart he puts into his work as he captures the characters emotions, their vulnerabilities which is heard in his performance. He is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another wonderful listen🎧

Loved this story so much.

Small town story, Chris ran away from his home, family, wedding and secret love. Not to return for 5 years.

Secretly in love, but thought he had hidden it so well, but it all got too much and he ran. Whilst away he trained service dogs and Lucy was his new love. He returns home and has to face a lot of people and ask for forgiveness. Whilst convincing his secret love they have PST.

A beautiful story with a HEA.

All the feels!!!

Story: Wow. I hadn't read the blurb, didn't really know anything going into this book other than the fact I love both the writer and narrator. K.C. has another hit with this one. Her characters and their personalities are so real, you get invested pretty quickly. I adored Chris, and was rooting for him from the start, even when I didn't quite agree with him. Hunter - my heart broke for Hunter. I also wanted to throttle him, slap them both silly, and lock them in a darn shed or something! This was such a good storyline, great likeable characters, and it left me walking away swoony and smiling.

Narration: Some of John Solo's best work to date (and that's something, from me, as I've always loved his performances).The emotion: despair, desperation, longing, anxiety, fear, love, - you heard and felt it in the subtle nuances in the narrator's voice. John not only brought these characters to life, he made you FEEL their hearts. GET THIS BOOK! You won't be sorry. It's a wonderful second chance story of mistakes, regrets, redemption, and renewal. All the stars!
