Publisher's Summary

Rowan

Five years ago, I ruined the best thing I had in my life and ran. Now, I'm finally back to make things right. I need Circus's forgiveness, and then I can finally move on. I'll leave Sunbury for good this time and never look back. Maybe then I can finally live life as an out gay man - without my family ever finding out. But earning his forgiveness isn't as simple as I hoped it would be. He's going to make me fight for it. And I don't blame him at all.

Circus

I never wanted or expected to see Rowan Harvey again. When he shows up in Sunbury, begging for forgiveness, I'm tempted to give it to him just so he'll disappear. Instead, we make a deal. I need an extra model for a swimwear shoot, and none of my friends are available or fit the brief. I'll forgive him, if he helps me. Then he has to leave. For good. Because his request for anonymity during the shoot proves he's still living in his dark closet. I'm not going to make the same mistakes I did when I was a teenager. I won't let myself fall for him again. Because after how things ended between us, he doesn't deserve a second chance.

Contains mature themes.

So glad I picked this book up

To be honest the first book in the series was a let down for me so I was hesitant to grab this one but turned out to be very happy I did. circus caught my attention in the first story so I just had to know his story. I found myself laughing a bunch through this book and liked the sweet and sexy times too. The narration was ok too nothing to get too hyped about but a great overall listen.

Good story. Good narration.

I enjoyed the story, but I was constantly aggravated by Rowan. He needed to punch someone, and it wasn't the person he did punch. Ugh. Things get sorted, but I really think some people should have been sorted. Rowan is a perpetual victim in this story. I know people like this, but it hurts my soul to read about them. The nicely performed narration kept me listening even when I got frustrated with Rowan's stupid.

Loved this

I've been waiting for this for months and it didn't disappoint. Second chances is my favorite trope as is friends to lovers. Perfect listen.

This all worked!

Arriving back in the small town of Sunbury, extremely closeted Rowan Harvey has bridges to mend with his high school crush, Kelly Atkins (aka Circus), whom he physically and emotionally hurt fives years ago. Circus’s online influencer profile is high, but he’s being pressured to feature a fake partner to increase the numbers. Rowan has the looks, needs the money, and wants to make it up to Circus, but he’s super worried that his homophobic, religious family will find out. This all worked! I loved the rich storylines in this plot, I thought Rowan’s journey of self-acceptance was well done, and I liked the two MCs a lot. The plot was a lot less predictable than the first book and that was great. Kirt Graves (as Circus) and Alexander Cendese (as Rowan) narrated the audio like the champions they are.
