Publisher's Summary

As a wildlife photographer, Journey "JJ" Sutton never stays in one place too long. The world is his classroom, and he’s living his dream. His only regret is that he had to sacrifice the love of his life to do it. But as the saying goes, you can never go home again. That’s until there’s a family emergency, and he has to…well, go home again. His easy breezy lifestyle gets complicated fast. It certainly doesn’t help that his ex-fiancé has bought the house next door. 

After an unstable childhood, Cameron Foster loves small-town life. He has everything he needs in his vet practice, his friends, and his animals. Despite what numerous exes seem to think, he’s not still in love with Journey. And so what if they add “benefits” to their friendship? As long as he keeps his heart out of the equation, everything should be fine. 

Too bad Journey's not onboard with that plan. With summer ending, he has to convince Cameron that this is more than just a fling. This time around, he knows what he wants. He wants a second chance. He wants forever. Most of all, he wants Cameron’s heart. 

Journey may have put away his passport, but things are just getting interesting.

what? why?

So childish and immature main caracter. lived in a small town most of his life, and still don't know to ignore or question town gossip.
He constantly assumes instead of talking things out. he is an idiot. and I can't even. I had to speed the story up quite a bit to get through it. and I still don't know if I can.

Great couple, fun story!

I absolutely loved this book, as much as I have loved other books from this author. Great small-town meddling, gossiping, and all the banter, it was so funny!

JJ & Cam were both adorable, each in their own individual way, but both amazing people who had big hearts. I loved how they combined their differences and made their relationship work. And the chemistry was incredible!

*audio review* - 4 stars
The narrator was good, his voice is beautiful and he speaks clearly, but the voices were sometimes very similar and hard to differentiate from one MC to the other. There was also a particular accent and some pauses in the middle of the sentences, but that might be because he wanted the characters to sound like Florida natives, though I don't know how they sound in real life.

Great story

I loved the book!! The audio wasn’t that great. The narrator really didn’t do the sarcasm well. So many good sarcastic moments in this book which totally got lost in translation. Not that the narrator is bad just not great for this book, IMO. I would highly recommended reading before listening.

Ugh. What an irritating narration.

I've still got 2 hours left & I don't know if I will keep listening. The narrator speaks with the same tone & diction making it hard to distinguish between the 2 main characters. He ends just about every line with the same note in his narration. It's really SO irritating. It's hard to listen to after just having listened to the talented narrations of Teddy Hamilton, Jacob Morgan and Shane East (I could list a lot of people here). As for the story, I can't say it's interesting because the narration is so confusing.
For me its been a waste of money.

Too Long and Too F-ing Slow

I tried, I really tried, but good god this book is so slow moving I just can't and I like S. E. Harmon, but not this one. Sorry.

I kept hoping the story would move along, but no, that didn't happen.

You read for yourself, you may like it, I just didn't.

I enjoyed this

I liked this story and all characters. So why only three stars?
I felt exasperated. Thousands of people are in a happy relationship while one of them travels a lot. And even in their thirties these men could not figure out a solution beyond breaking up?

The narration was nice but at several points he missed the spot and I focussed on failures. For example his kid voices and a few times he was stating facts where he should have been performing. And it was not always clear who of the men was talking.

Lovely story - horrible narration

One of my favourite stories about returning home, reconnecting with former fiance and building bridges with family over painful shared loss. The story is full of warmth and humour where rescue animals and clients of the vet clinic rival with the nosy townspeople in quirkiness. I remember reading the book and laughing out loud with the snarky 'in your head' commentary of both MCs and somehow all of this was lost in the audio version. Nick Hudson's narration was filled with odd pauses at the end of each sentence. There was no emotional depth and after first few chapters where the main MCs voices were differentiated with weird high pitch for Cameron that made no sense at all, it evened out to make it difficult to figure out who was speaking. The female and children's voices were plain awful caricatures. Normally I would bin a book with bad narration after few chapters but as I said I really love this story. Too bad the choice of narrator relegates it to reread category.

new to me author

Nick is an amazing narrator.....he brought my attention to another author and darn it, this man can't pick a bad book to narrate. The story was amazing. 2nd chance romance at it's finest and of course a cranky old man to add some laughs

The audio book makes the experience.

The book is entertaining and a bit different, but the audio book makes the experience special.

Sweet and fun second-chances romance!

When international wildlife photographer, Journey Sutton, gets the call that his father has had a stroke, he reluctantly returns to his home town, his family, and Cameron, the ex-boyfriend he left behind to pursue his dream. Cameron Foster has picked up the pieces since Journey left, his veterinary practice is thriving, and he has bought a house - right next to Journey’s father’s place, making him impossible to avoid. I always love SE Harmon books and I liked the two main characters, the setup, and the nosy small-town inhabitants in this sweet second-chances romance. SE writes great banter and I especially loved the sparring between Journey and his dad and would have loved more of that but, of course, the story focuses more on Journey and Cam. I also love Nick Hudson’s audio narrations, he had the banter down perfectly. I would have liked more differentiation between Journey and Cam’s voices, I often couldn’t tell who was speaking.
