Publisher's Summary

Lincoln Merriweather was born an entitled brat with a silver spoon lodged so deep, it might never have come out. At the BDSM club or in business, Lincoln was a storm, blowing in and disrupting the lives of everyone he touched, until the day he met a man who peeled away the tarnished layers to expose a decent person. 

Lincoln found - then lost - love. 

Since then, he’s tried to atone for his past, including walking away from his family’s wealth. He opened a diner, hiring people to work for him that he would have spit on before his epiphany. He’s found peace, which he’s about to lose to a hazel-eyed man.  

Noel Simmons wound up on the street when his parents discovered he was gay. His path leads him to Lincoln’s diner, where he asks for a job. He’s thrilled when Lincoln agrees to hire him but finds his new boss perplexing. Can anyone be this kind and decent? 

What starts out as business becomes something more. Noel discovers he needs Lincoln in order to feel safe. Lincoln needs Noel to complete him. But when Lincoln’s past gets in the way of his present, will the two have a future?

Awesome Listen

I absolutely loved the kindle version and had to add the audiobook. I’m glad I did. This truly comes to life digitally. One of my favorite authors and I am loving this series so far.

such a sweet amazing story

Parker is such a fantastic author and he can write such sweet romance. Lincoln is so strong and caring. Noel is beaten but not broken and he's stronger for his struggles. These guys have a beautiful chemistry you can feel through the words.

BDSM? No thanks.

Great characters. Great storyline.
Until Lincoln starts with the control freak stuff.
He tries so hard to make it sound like a good thing, that he’d never hurt Noel, but he’s hurting Noel by not allowing him to be an equal partner with equal control.
Couldn’t finish it. Submission is demeaning.
Could have been a better story without the Dom/Sub bent.
Narrator was as good as he could be trying to talk like a creepy control freak.

Diners and Second Chances

Lincoln Merriweather is a former rich man who suddenly had a change of heart and gave up everything to live a more honest life. He now owns his own diner and does his best to help others. Noel Simmons is a young man who was kicked out of his house for being gay and just needs a little help to get on his feet. He goes to the diner to ask for a job, but ends up not only with a job, but a new start on life and his own romantic happy ever after. The story was decent, but the characters were a little too cookie cutter for them to feel truly authentic. The writing was okay, but it didn’t have that depth or richness that elevates a story into a masterpiece. Overall, it was an enjoyable romance with a decent plot – a solid three stars out of five.

Mixed feeling on story

The performance dulled the book a bit. His lack of fluctuation of voices became annoying at times. I liked the story. Parts of the story was repeat assurances of BDSM and what it meant.
I kept reading because the story was interesting.

Cheesy narrator ruined it

The story was fairly cliche but not terrible, however, it was ruined but the most ridiculous narration I’ve ever heard. It’s like he was making fun of the story. The romance genre can be trite but what makes an audiobook engaging is the authentic interpretation of the characters. This narrator’s expression was downright caricaturish and a hair’s breadth shy of mocking. Disrespectful to the author and the listeners.

very enjoyable

I really enjoyed all the character’s in this story. Lincoln is a man on a mission of redemption and Noel is a young man in search of acceptance. . I really enjoy redemption and finding family stories and this one does not disappoint.
Tristan James, while not one of my favorite narrator, did a good job with this story!!
