This is the third book with Giovanni and also this time it broke my heart not only once. I recommend reading or listening to the books in order to understand Giovanni and his pain. I suffered along with him, not only in this book, but also in the first two volumes.
The author wrote the books so well that I was very quickly immersed in the world of Giovanni, Silvio and Valentino. Giovanni did not come out of the last relationship unscathed and Silvio has his hands full trying to stop Giovanni's self-destructive behavior. But he, too, must be able to grieve at some point.
The characters have incredible depth and you can directly feel the pain while reading or listening to them and at the same time hope for a happy ending. I loved Giovanni, but Silvio is also endearing because he has a lot of patience with Giovanni and tries to give him what he needs.
I was happy about the ending, it fit for me. It was wonderful to accompany Giovanni on his journey, even if I needed some tissues.

Daniel Carter made me experience this audiobook very intensely. He was really good at portraying the emotions, the sadness, the pain, but also little joyful moments. He was the perfect narrator for this series and I will gladly look for more audiobooks with him as narrator.

Since I love reading Laura Lascarso's books and I love listening to audiobooks even more, I was delighted when I saw that Giovanni's audiobook was available. This book is the prequel to Master's Schiavo, a book I absolutely love.
Here you learn how the story of Valentin, who runs the family criminal business on a transitional basis, and Giovanni, the heir to the business, begins. The two have known each the other for a very long time and after a dramatic event, the world is a different place for Matthew aka Giovanni. Valentin takes care of Giovanni and this relationship soon becomes more intense.
I was captivated by the story and found it very entertaining. It was nice to see how the master/slave relationship slowly develops and there are setbacks in between.
Giovanni is a sympathetic character who has already experienced a lot in his young life. He finds peace of mind with Valentin.
The story is entertaining, in between very emotional, sometimes dramatic, but it also has heartwarming moments.
The story is told exclusively from Valentin's point of view, which is basically fitting. However, I would have been happy to hear some chapters from Giovanni's point of view.

Daniel Carter did a great job narrating the audio book. He has a pleasant voice and brought the story to life. He skillfully portrayed the emotions of the protagonists. Daniel Carter is a versatile and talented narrator. It was a pleasure to listen to him.

Overall: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Performance: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Story: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is my second book by the author and she has done a wonderful job with her coming of age story. I like Laura Lascarso's easy-going writing style, which fits well with the young people in this book. The story is told in the first person exclusively from Theo's point of view, which allows you to get to know him very well.
Theo and Chris are wonderful characters who struggle with everyday things like school and skating and have been best friends for years. But how do you handle it when you suddenly realize you have more feelings for your best friend?

The themes are super fitting for coming of age and were told in a realistic and believable way. It's about first love, about betrayal and disappointment and how to deal with it, and about complicated family relationships that don't get any easier when you find out you're gay.
None of the protagonists are perfect and that's a good thing. I felt well entertained, but sometimes in between it was a little slow going.
Chris and Theo were totally cute together and it was nice to listen to their relationship develop.
I didn't know Michael Mola before, but he did a really good job narrating "When everything is blue". I liked his pace of narration, it was well chosen and his choice of the different voices of the protagonists was absulutely well done. It fit perfectly with the respective personalities and I always knew who was speaking. Michael Mola portrayed the emotion believably and it was a pleasure to listen to him.
I requested a free copy of the audiobook and this is my honest opinion that I am volunteering
