Whiskey has kept the demons at bay. But when he meets a sensitive young man at a club, the escape he seeks at the bottom of a glass gets harder and harder to find.

For mature listeners.

as great as the ebook

The story is always full stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook.

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. Michael Ferraiuolo is one of the top 5 narrators for me, I can listen without break and have no problems to follow.
I'm just not yet finish with the book, but I listen enough to give a review.


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

Great story, Ferraiuolo was excellent, as always!

This one is a bit of a heart-breaker. What Cooper had to endure was hard to imagine, and he just needed love so badly. And Jet was such an intricate character - one of my favorites in this series so far.

I listened to the audio-book and Michael Ferraiuolo did a nice job with the narration. He always brings something very unique to each character, and I love his accents.

The Story of Love and Recovery

Aria Grace has done it again in this amazing book. In the early Twenty Hundreds,  I served as a bivocational non-stipend ordained minister of a small country United Church of Christ Church in Kentucky.

We met in the chapel of a local homeless shelter. From the pulpit, I once preached about addictions.  I recall saying: "No one wakes up one day and says: 'I am going to be a drug addict!' or 'I think that I am going to become an alcoholic starting today!' No one says that, I continued. People are hurting, they are self medicating. I went on to say that helping to heal the hurt is the beginning of recovery.

Later, I served as the Information Services Supervisor that oversaw a call center in a hospital with a special focus on behavioral health and addictions. My job, in part was to help connect individuals who are seeking help with local community lead mutual aid support groups. Groups like AA and Secular Recovery support groups.

In this marvelous tale of recovery, healing and love, Coop (Brian Cooper) a business man finds love with a bartender named Jet (presumably Jethro.) Together, these men both work through their pain, discovering mutual healing and attunement all while their love blossoms.

Ms Grace' novels carry a higher message intertwined with genuine love. I wholeheartedly recommend reading her works.
