A great start to a new series, I loved volume one and listened to the audiobook in two days.
Jaren and his three brothers are interesting characters with a messy childhood. They met in foster care, support each other and are there for each other.
Just before his wedding, Jared thought he was happy, only to find that everything turns out quite differently. The bride's brother brings him the cancellation of the wedding and Jaren is left with nothing.
Reid ask Jaren to move in with him and the two getting to know each other was totally sweet. Reid had been in love with Jaren for a while and Jaren is comfortable in Reid's company. It's a slow burn romance with lots of emotion and honest communication. Reid, Jaren and his brothers were very likable to me. The story is told alternately from Jaren's and Reid's points of view, allowing the listener a deep insight into their emotional world.
The story is well written: it is about trust, about love and friendship, about bi-awakening, but also about a difficult past and about deep feelings. Lovely and heartwarming.
John Solo did a good job bringing the characters to life. He conveyed the emotions well and he found the appropriate voices for the different characters.
I can't wait to listen to the next volume in this series!
