The Riley Nash stories I've read so far have been very emotional and it's the same here. Roman is a traumatized boy who continues to be taken advantage of, even abused, by his not very nice brother. Just so Roman can have a roof over his head. I think you should notice the trigger warning at the beginning.
Then there's Scout and his friends, who grow up in abject poverty and dream of a better life. But to do that you need money and so Scout gets the idea to make videos in which he is the Dom and now he is looking for a sub. He happens to meet the tall, quiet boy Roman.
What I really liked was Scout's handling of the fact that Roman mostly doesn't talk. He took it in stride and didn't push him to speak. On the contrary, he and his friends Dallas and Beck were really sweet and even learned sign language.
Scout wants to be a Dom and I can understand the reasons why Roman wants to drop. But somehow, while listening, I felt like their BDSM relationship didn't really work. Sure, you can make mistakes when you start your career as a Dom, but this wasn't it. Maybe it was because Roman was so traumatized.
I also unfortunately had trouble connecting with the protagonists and can't even put my finger on exactly what it was.
This is no ordinary love story and at first it takes time for the plot to pick up and for me to get into the story. But from the middle of the book on, more happens and it gets exciting.
I didn't know the two narrators Devon Ryder and Bryant Walker before, but I will remember them. They both have very pleasant voices, emphasize in the right places and brought the story to life. I enjoyed the performance of both of them.
This book is an interesting start to a series and I am already looking forward to Beck and Dallas' stories.

This is another book in the "Water, Air, Earth, Fire" series by Riley Nash that had me hooked from the start. The storyline was very unusual, but that's what made me curious for more. Oliver and Jackson survive a train accident in which a tunnel collapses. They spend the first few days in total darkness and get to know each other better. Yes, they fall in love. But reality hits them hard when they are rescued and Jackson is taken away in handcuffs. Oliver returns to his family. But what would life be without second chances? And so it comes to pass that they meet again many years later.
If you don't mind insta-love and a little coincidence, you'll enjoy this story. Oliver is no ordinary man, he loves to knit and his daughter Megan means the world to him. Jackson is just Jackson.  He has a tragic past, but I loved him for how he never lost faith in Oliver and just the thought of one day seeing Oliver again kept him fighting. Like I said, the story captivated me, my heart was ripped out and put back together at the end. And I've rarely been so happy about a happy ending as I was here. A highlight of the story is Oliver's sweet girl Megan, she really shines and makes everyone around her shine. 

The two narrators took turns reading from Oliver and Jackson's point of view. Both Wyatt Baker and Liam DiCosimo did a fantastic job of narrating and I was able to get into the characters' heads very well. They did a great job of portraying the emotions and bringing the story to life.

Story: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I love the wonderful writing style of Riley Nash, who is incredibly good with words.
The story is heartbreaking and it is an emotional roller coaster ride. It took me a bit to warm up to Victor as a character because he already acts extreme. Victor's past is emotionally draining, but he acted so bratty and rude that I was beginning to wonder why Ethan was so patient for so long.
Ethan's story was no less emotional and kept me riveted. He actually carries far too great a burden for his age.
Each of them is struggling to find a bit of normalcy and Victor has built high walls around himself. It was nice to watch the two of them and see Ethan slowly break through to Victor.
The story is dark, painful and frustrating at times and at the end with hope and already kind of sweet.

The two narrators did a great job. They portrayed the emotions well and I liked both their voices and the pace of the narration. It was a pleasure to listen to these two.
