Overview

If Ben wants to find love with Micah, he'll have to own up to the truth of who he is.

People-pleaser Ben Forman has been in the closet so long he has almost convinced himself he is straight, but his denial train gets derailed when hotshot lawyer Micah Trains walks into his life. Micah is brilliant, funny, driven...and he assumes Ben is gay and starts dating him. Finding himself truly happy for the first time, Ben doesn't have the willpower to resist Micah's affection.

When his relationship with Micah heats up, Ben realizes has a problem: his parents won't tolerate a gay son and self-confident Micah isn't the type to hide. If Ben wants to maintain his hold on his happiness, he'll have to decide what's important and own up to the truth of who he is. The trouble is figuring out just what that truth is.

Okay, so I haven't read all the books in this series. I read one, but it really wasn't that great (Where He Ends, I Begin). The writing style was awkward and confusing much of the time, so I really didn't have high hopes for this book, but thought I'd give it a shot based on the reviews from other web sites. So glad I did! This is written in first person which I normally don't like, but the internal monologue by Ben was hilarious. Even when he was being a complete douche, I couldn't help but love him. He is what made this book, 100%. Ben was real, a guy who is so terrified of not being who he thinks he should be that he makes some jerky moves along the way to finding out who he really is. He isn't perfect and his parents really drilled the bad stereotype of what being gay is into his head, so it took a lot of dumb and painful mistakes to get to accepting that he was gay. Once that was accomplished, Ben jumped headfirst into his new life and in love with Micah. Some expected, but disappointing reactions from his parents, completely unexpected, but appreciated reactions from Micah's family, and loving family connections all come together to round out Ben's coming out in the best way. Thus is definitely one of the better gay romances I have read. The sex was hot, the love was intense, the characters and interactions were real and I didn't ever want it to end. If you only ever read one book by this author or from this series, this should be it. This is going in my re-read pile for when I want a sweet, passionate, romantic comedy. 400+ pgs.

I bought my copy to READ, for the AUDIO version, I was gifted my copy to review. Ben is so far in the closet, he could be on the shelf. Meeting Micah throws him totally off his axis, and into a tailspin the likes he has never seen before. Micah is perfect for Ben, its just Ben doesnt want anyone to know. Micah doesn't want to be Ben's secret. Ben needs to make a devastating decision, one that could cost him both Micah AND his parents. This is a single person POV, in the first person, and thats totally not a favourite of mine, so this book was on a downer from very early on. ALso, I struggled to connect to Ben, since he tells the story, I really did. I can't pinpoint why, and you all know thats does my nut in! I hate not being able to work out what did not quite work for me, these 3 stars are the hardest for me to write. I did like that we get some of the other men in the Home series, Ben's brother Noah and Clark, Zach and Aaron, and Seth and Eli (not read the first two pair's books but have the third) And I LOVED how, while dealing with his relationship with Micah, Ben reconnects with his brother, Noah. And while mum and dad finally come round, I did not like that it took babies to make them see sense. BUT BUT BUT is a good book, just not an awesome one. 3 stars I also had the opportunity to LISTEN to this book, I was gifted my copy. Alexander Collins narrates. I wanted to love this in audio, I really did, since I didn't much like Ben when I read it. And I cannot fault Collins narration, not at all. His voices are clear and defined, and I had no trouble remembering the other voices Collins did, Seth and Eli, Aaron and Zach. They were consistent throughout. It was just Ben!! Although I did feel a better connection hearing him to reading him, I still didn't like him much. I did like him better when reconnecting to Noah and to Clark, and I still didn't like his parents much. It might be that three, back to back, Collins narrated books, all in the first person, did me in. It might be, as was my original thought after reading, "oh dear, Ben!" still stands. Again, its still a good book, juts not a great one. 3 stars I originally gave the book, 4.5 stars for narration 4 stars overall. **same worded review will appear on Goodreads, Audible.co.uk, Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, and Kobo**
