Publisher's Summary

Life in foster care wasn’t easy. Life after prison? Unforgiving. But I’m determined to stay out of trouble, and I’m gaining a foothold on the closest I’ve ever known to normal.

Then, thanks to a pair of escape-artist dogs from the sanctuary where I’ve found work, I cross paths with my boss’ neighbor, Ty Adams. He’s a horse trainer, and winter is his quiet season. It’s also the season when he gets restless and lonely—two things I know all about. He’s not interested in love or romance. I’m just happy someone’s interested in me at all, even if emotions are strictly forbidden.

When we’re not together, I’m thinking about him. When we are together... Well, I’m definitely thinking about what he does to me and what I want to do with him.

As we keep each other warm through the Vermont winter, this feels a lot more than physical. Somehow he soothes my pain, and I wonder if I’m touching something deep inside him too. But Ty won’t let himself love anyone. I never had a chance. And now, with my past closing in, I could lose the one man I hoped I could count on. The one I thought might be different.

When his present and my history collide, is it too much to hope he’ll choose me?

CW: Sick horse and a minor accident involving a horse—no animal deaths or serious injuries/illnesses.

🙄

Well there's 12 hours of my life I'll never get back. 11 hours before common sense filtered through the pages, and then back to the whining. Oh yes, there's a lot of whining and drama Queen BS. A lot of repetitiveness. And it all takes its toll on you. You can clearly tell this was written by a woman. Not all women can write MM romance novels.

Yay I get to be the first 😝

I have no words at how amazing this listen is. Its a beautiful story and Nick J. Russo is lovely as always. It had its moments where it was pretty predictable but that doesn’t take away from the story at all. Not much more I can say other than go ahead and spend that credit it’ll make a great relisten. (Not a word ik but who cares lmao)

Very repetitive

The concept grabbed me from the start, and I really liked the premise, but the internal dialog of both characters was very, very repetitive. It seemed like they didn't have quite enough to do in the story, so the author just said the same things over and over, sometimes even within the same chapter. I got several hours in, and I still didn't have much detail about the characters' backstory or more than hints about why Landon went to prison. I was disappointed because I really liked both these guys and wanted to know more about them. I loved the setting and detail about the horses. I may come back to this in ebook form so that I can skim and still find out what happens. Although Nick J. Russo did a great job, it could have benefited from two narrators as the characters sounded pretty similar.

Redemption

Even if the story is quite predictable, it is a very good listening. The plot is interesting, the setting is compelling and the characters are appealing. And the narration is really excellent. I had a very good time with this audiobook.
