Book Info

About the Author
Ryan Loveless is a farmer’s daughter. She has a BA in English from a private college in Illinois and a master’s degree in library and information science with an archival certificate from a university in New York. Raised in a conservative family, she was shocked and relieved when her coming out was largely uneventful. She has been writing since she could read and has always drifted toward M/M because she enjoys the relationship dynamics. It’s possible that her first story was about GI Joe. She wishes she still had that story.

By twenty-four, Carter Stevenson has stuttered and ticced his way to debilitating shyness. Although his friends accuse him of letting his Tourette's dictate his life, Carter moves from Los Angeles to a quiet California town. He'll keep his head down and avoid people. He doesn't anticipate his new neighbor, Ethan Hart, crashing into his solitude and forcing him to get out and live.

From the beginning, Ethan makes his love for Carter clear. But he fears Carter won't see past Ethan's damaged brain, even though it makes Ethan more attuned to his emotions than most people. For Carter, there's a bigger issue: he's been burned by so-called "perfect" matches, and he won't risk his heart again.

One way or another, Ethan's determined to show Carter they belong together. Then Ethan receives tragic news. Suddenly he must turn to Carter for strength and support. Will Carter come through when Ethan needs him most?

Usually, when I write reviews for audio books, I write about the book first and the narration after. I cannot, simply CANNOT do that here. 
Why? I can't split them because the narration is what makes this book for me.

Oh don't get me wrong, the book itself is awesome, but the narration K.C.Kelly is what takes it to another level. I truly believe I would not have enjoyed this book as much had I read it. Here's why.

Ethan is brain damaged from an incident (not saying what because that will give spoilers) and READING the book when Ethan is  talking, it might have come across as *finding the right word is HARD!* simplistic. That the way Ethan talks might not come across right. But the narration by Kelly? Gives it just what it needs. 

Ethan and Carter are very different, their challenges in life so very far from each other, but from that very first time Carter sees Ethan, listening to the music in the clouds, he knows that Ethan is special. Ethan makes his love for Carter known from the beginning. He can hear Carter's music too, in his ticks and clicks and jerks. Oh, I loved the way Ethan's brain worked! 

I loved Ethan's family and friends and how they all looked out for him. Ethan has some very laugh out loud moments and some very heartbreaking ones. I understand why his family did what they did, but I can see why Ethan felt so hurt by it.

The research into both Carter and Ethan's conditions shows, and it makes for powerful listening.

Kelly's narration was, Ethan's voice aside, excellent. I loved his other voices, and his reading voice was clear and deep, and I had no trouble following multi-person conversations. This is the first I have listened to by Kelly and my wish list on Audible is now several books longer. It's also the first of Loveless that I have read/listened to, again, wish list, longer!

I do hope Loveless will write more about Ethan and Carter, I'd love to catch up with them along their way!
