Paul Hannon moved to Tucker Springs for his girlfriend, but she’s left him with a house he can’t afford and a pantry full of useless gadgets. All Paul wants is to get back to normal, even if he’s not sure what that is anymore. When he wanders into Tucker Pawn for a gift to win her back, he meets El Rozal, pawn shop owner and all-around cynic.
El Rozal doesn’t do relationships, especially not with clueless straight boys still pining for their ex. El may make his living dealing in castoffs, but that doesn’t apply to men. Still, when Paul starts clearing out his old life, pawning kitchen equipment he never wanted in the first place, El is drawn to Paul in spite of himself.
Paul and El have nothing in common except a past full of disappointments. There’s no reason to believe the two of them could fit, but in El’s line of work, one man’s junk is another man’s treasure. When it comes to love, El and Paul may learn that secondhand doesn’t mean second best.
I previously reviewed the book of Second Hand, but now I’m reviewing the audiobook version. I have enjoyed every book narrated by Iggy Toma and Second Hand is proof to the fact the man is a fantastic narrator. His voices are so down to earth and so different from one another that I can recognize them instantly. I already loved Paul & El, but with their voices now inside my head I love them even more now.
5 stars all the way around for Second Hand. This is an audiobook you won’t want to miss.
And now I wait impatiently for Tucker Springs Dirty Laundry to hit audiobook…
