Publisher's Summary

Ginger Holtzman has fought for everything she's ever had - the success of her tattoo shop, respect in the industry, her upcoming art show. Tough and independent, she has taking no crap down to an art form. Good thing, too, since keeping her shop afloat, taking care of her friends, and scrambling to finish her paintings doesn't leave time for anything else. Which...is for the best, because then she doesn't notice how lonely she is.   

Christopher Lucen opened a coffee and sandwich joint in South Philly because he wanted to be part of a community after years of running from place to place, searching for something he could never quite name. Now, he relishes the familiarity of knowing what his customers want and giving it to them. But what he really wants now is love.   

When they meet, Christopher is smitten, but Ginger...isn't quite so sure. Christopher's gorgeous, and kind, and their opposites-attract chemistry is off the charts. But hot sex is one thing - truly falling for someone? Terrifying. When her world starts to crumble around her, Ginger has to face the fact that this fight can only be won by being vulnerable - this fight, she can't win on her own.   

Contains mature themes.

Deep

This entire series is a very intensely emotional read but this one and particular is very striking and very intense and deep and a bit dark. It was an amazing thing for me to listen to but it was so intense at times that i would actually have to stop listening because I was taking on the characters anxiety. But that's one of the things that makes this book so great.

This is the only book in the series so far with a female narrator. I usually don't like female narrators because they tend to sound very fake or too high pitched or they're trying too hard but this one is just the perfect sound and she totally fits what I imagine the character to sound like, which is difficult to nail since she's such a badass.

I think one of the things that makes this book so intense and identifiable is the fact that anybody can be a Ginger or Christopher, in the sense that we're all trying very hard to be where we are and to be better and to be loved and to be accepted. we all want to have things go our way and to feel like we belong but we don't always know how to do that and we can really mess something up on our journey to find these things we want so badly.

I highly recommend this read but I also recommend that you prepare yourself emotionally.

I laughed, I cried, it was really good.

I felt more of myself in this book than I think I ever have in any piece of writing. This series has been one of my favorites.

Best Romance I Ever Read

This book changed something in me. It changes how I think about romance as a genre and what these books can contain, how deep it went with the romance and also the true love these characters feel for each other.

As a queer / pansexual woman in a relationship with a man, it was wonderful to read a story that featured this relationship dynamic. Bisexuals often feel left out of the LGBTQ community when they are in straight-presenting LTRs. Ginger being queer was part of her life and it meant she always paved her own path. Her queerness was part of her innately and not about what relationship she happened to be in. She's a fully realized character I could relate to so much. Christopher is strong and masculine but he's truly the nurturing one with his caregiving and instincts to feed people and keep in touch. He also truly admired creative people like Ginger and Jude. Just that dynamic was beautiful to witness.

Roan Parrish writes so beautifully and with such lyricism and emotional depth and insight. I'm in awe of how much he puts into this story. The surrounding characters felt real, the world and her tattoo shop felt lived in. The descriptions of how Ginger sees the world as a painter blew me away. I will be mourning the end if this book for a while and I hope Roan writes more MF relationships and maybe even a FF.

Jo Raylan narrated this beautifully. She read differently than I've experienced, acting out the emotions with her voice, really embodying the dialogue both interior and between characters. Her voice is a deep alto and sexy af and she does a great job with the male voices too.

Read this book and let it heal your little queer heart.

Synergy

Absolutely wonderful audiobook, extremely meaningful- sometimes we cannot find those special words until it’s nearly to late .
Beautiful words by Roan Parrish added with one of the best female narrators Jo Raylan , who has such a sensual voice .
