Publisher's Summary

A fun and sexy romance where the kiln isn't the only thing that's scorching hot.

Leo Secombe loves his life, and he's convinced himself he's happy to be single. In his spare time, he keeps himself busy at a local LGBTQ centre that pairs a younger person with a community elder to help them feel included in today's rainbow family. Leo and Clyde have been buddies for a few years now, and signing up for a pottery class seems like fun.

Merrick Bowman has been so focused on getting his pottery business up and running that he's forgotten how to date. How to live, even. But when a young, bubbly Leo and an older, grumpy Clyde walk through his door, Merrick has no idea how much Leo is about to centre his world.

Throwing clay has been Merrick's entire life, but Leo's about to change all that. Maybe Merrick's ready to throw caution to the wind. And maybe he's ready to finally throw his heart on the line.

Adorable!

This is such a sweet and adorable story! Leo is the best character – with a fantastic best friend and grumpy mate he catches up with weekly as part of an LGBTQI+ group.  It’s during one of these groups’ activities where he attends a pottery class and meets Merrick – our second fantastic character and all round nice guy! Sparks are instant and wonderful and I just adore the sweet mood this book put me in as I read it.  The side story of Clyde (the grumpy mate) and Merrick’s uncle makes this book even more special and one you just have to read!  If I had to use one word for this book – it’s Adorable!
Glen Lloyd does a wonderful job bringing these characters to life! His portrayal of Leo is particularly perfect!

Disappointing

I generally really love N.R. Walker. He stuff is usually fun and sweet but has a bit of oomph to it. This book fell flat. I kind of felt like there was a nugget of goodness but it was mitered by allot of stupid self reflection. The narrator was really bad. I usually think international narrator get a pass because even if they aren’t amazing it’s still better than a bad American reader but this guy was just bad. Over all not one of my favs

Merrick and Leo

Merrick owns a Pottery shop, Leo and Cranky Clyde sign up for classes. Merrick and Leo hit it off, and Meerick invites his Uncle Donnie to the class to be a friend for Clyde but Cupid has other ideas. The wedding was beautiful.

Good story. Good narration.

This was a sweet romance story with wonderful characters. The story had a few moral lessons and a few reminders that we are all allowed to be a bit different.

Narration was well suited to the story.

"... you can throw hearts for me any time." - Leo

• Would I listen to it again: yes
• Did the story keep me engaged: yes
• Was I invested in the characters: yes

• Story comment: I found this to be a "cute" story with an easy pace. The characters are likeable with their own quirks and the dynamic between the two MCs was entertaining. I appreciated NR Walkers inclusion of Clyde and Uncle Donny. The older generation, what they suffered and how they feel (even now) should never be forgotten.

• Narrator comment: I enjoyed Glen Lloyd's narration. I had no problem distinguishing characters, his rhythm, tone and inflections have all done a good job bringing Throwing Hearts to life.

Sweet and funny

I liked this book very much! It was sweet and funny, exactly what I needed right now. I loved all the characters, and I'd give an extra credit for Clyde any Donny. And one more for the idea of the pottery-café. This was so kind and entertaining, I'd recommend to everyone who wants laughs and love.
