What did you like least? Loved the story itself, the content. The narration was mediocre at best. What did you like best about this story? He changed tone for Aadon, it was a subtle change, but a change none the less and it was confusing. Did Better inspire you to do anything? No, should it? Any additional comments? After pressing charges and putting his tormentor behind bars, Jesse moved away and is trying to have some resemblance of a life, going to school, working in the library.
When a fellow student shows interest in Jesse, it scares him and opens up old wounds. Aadon has admired Jesse from afar for a while, not only attracted to shy guy that works at the library, but sensing he and Jesse share a mutual interest in the type of relationship they want. But pursuing Jesse turns out to be very challenging, to say the least.
The two begin a shaky friendship, with both wanting more but not acting on that want for different reasons. Aadon slowly unravels the mystery behind Jesse and what makes him so skiddish and falls in love with the broken soul he holds in his hands. I was drawn into this story almost immediately but somewhere along the way, the story started to drag and I found myself skimming here and there.
The story itself is what kept me going though, I became invested in these two men wanting, no needing to know whether or not they got their version of a happy ever after. This was definitely a case of narration hindering the finesse of the story, in my opinion. My first audible from Randy Fuller and it will probably be my last.
I had to rewind a couple times to be sure that it was actually Aadon who was meant to be speaking. Sadly, I have to give this book a lower rating at this time because of the mediocre narration.
I mean to go back and read the written version of this story at some point, because THAT kept me listening to this audio book. And finally coming to the realization that it is something he has to do himself. So, my recommendation, READ the book, skip the audio. Truly a great book.

When Jesse meets third-year law student Aadon at the library where he works, their mutual attraction is instant and obvious. Jesse is stuck in his own desperate wish to forget the painful shadow that continues to threaten him and any hope of a happy future. There are periods of high angst and upset, emotion notched up to the highest peak and sadness flowing like blood from an opened vein. If you put the blurb aside and read the book as I did you will have a very special reading experience. I actually purchased the book due to the cover art and the first impression I got from speaking to the author online. Jesse, one of the lead characters, is a damaged soul trying to rebuild himself after being damaged both physically and emotionally by an abusive lover. As anyone knows physical wounds heal but emotional wounds linger long after the bruises fade and the broken bones mend.
