Nightmares and panic attacks following a horrific tragedy leave Professor Elliot Lawrence a prisoner in his own home. After months of relying on his sister as his only connection to the outside world, Elliot is desperate for a sliver of independence. But leaving the safety of his home isn’t an option, not yet, and he reaches out in the most innocuous way he can think of: grocery delivery.
Colton Kelly, retired porn star and recent college grad, is struggling at two minimum wage jobs to make ends meet. During one of his grocery deliveries, he meets Elliot. Although the attraction between them is instant, they must first traverse the long road of putting Elliot back together. When disaster strikes yet again, this time in Colt’s life, Elliot’s not sure he’s strong enough to be the man Colt needs him to be.
To start, this book two. I’ve not read or listen to book one and had no problem following along with this story.
Both of these characters have demons they have to face. Both want to face them and heal. And they both want to do it together. That’s what makes it such a wonderful tale. We do not have the co-dependence of one person to another, they both need and want each other.
Watching Colton and Elliot struggle to find that balance, is wonderful. And when they think they will lose it, it just make them fight that much harder. So heart warming.
The secondary ppl are really in the back ground until the last third of the book or so, so really get to watch the Colton and Elliot story unfold with out a of interference. So watching them learn to like, lust, love was really special.
And the ending could not have gone any better.
The narrator did an amazing job with all the voices, from the little niece to the sister, the brothers and of course Colton and Elliot.
