Publisher's Summary

It's been a long 17 years but Herschel Wood, Jr., is finally a free man and he's looking forward to reconnecting with his old cellmate, Bishop Stockley, who promised him a place to stay and some help getting back on his feet. Wood had a good life once upon time when he'd owned one of the most successful tattoo shops on the Virginia Beach Oceanfront - until a fatal accident that was his fault cost him everything. 

Trent Armstrong has never been considered a catch. He's a 29-year-old laborer, an ex-con, and not the easiest person to get along with. He's used to being the one people cast to the side when they're done with him. Everyone he's ever cared about has walked out of his life without a backward glance, so he's used to the loneliness. 

From the moment the tattooed, silver-haired man walked into the house there had been nothing but tension, side-eyeing, and sparks between them. Trent has always held back a side of himself that he's terrified to explore, and without warning Wood's voice, his maturity, that maddening scent, and even his damaged past all trigger feelings that Trent thought he'd buried deep long ago.

Contains mature themes.

Much better audio from narrator then The last one.

Love the story! Heart wrenching at times. Beautiful story. The narrator did a much better job this time then the first book. The first book I kept hearing him take a loud breath in after every time he said something. There was a little bit of that in this one but not as bad. Overall great story and narrator.

Herschel Wood Jr.

AE Via keeps tugging on my heartstrings! This is my second listen by her and I am a fan! This book features Wood who is adapting to civilian life after being in jail for many years. Living with Trent is not that easy. Besides the age difference, they are constantly bickering. Until we find out why. And a beautiful slow burn romance begins. But it's not all about Wood and Trent! There is so much to this story as Wood finds his way back to life. Reaching out to those he loves, finding a new normal and starting over is tough. With the help of friends and Trent, we get to take his journey. There will be tears, so have your tissues ready but the story will fill your heart bring a smile to your face. Tor Thom is a talented storyteller. As Wood, he delves into the emotions of his past, and we can hear the pain and suffering he goes through. We also can hear the growing love he has for Trent! He easily moves into Trent and other characters, but his portrayal of Wood stands out . I felt it all with inflections and nuances that are specific to Wood and it made the listen incredible. I will be watching for the next one!

Narration frustration!

I had such high hopes for this audiobook. The story line was really good. However, it fell flat due to the lackluster narration. This story is filled with so much emotion and none of it came through. The emotional portions were so monotone. Even if Aiden Snow wasn't a narrator option for this series, there are soooo many better M/M narrator choices that could've really brought this story and series to life. Just my opinion... and still love me some A.E. Via!!

This is simply amazing. The story. The narration. Everything! Thank you AE Via for another great book. That Tor Thom... his voice could melt panties or a jockstrap. Where's my fan?
