About the Author
S.E. Harmon has had a lifelong love affair with writing. It’s been both wonderful and rocky (they've divorced several times), but they always manage to come back together. She's a native Floridian with a Bachelor of Arts and a Masters in Fine Arts, and now splits her days between voraciously reading romance novels and squirreling away someplace to write them. Her current beta reader is a nosy American Eskimo who begrudgingly accepts payment in the form of dog biscuits.

Kelly Cannon is satisfied with his life. He has friends, a wonderful family, and a great job. But his love life has reached a new level of pitiful. Why? Well, his heart decided to break all the rules. Don’t fall in love with a straight guy. And definitely don’t fall in love with your best friend.

NFL standout Britton “Blue” Montgomery has pressure coming at him from all sides. From his father, who’s only interested in Blue’s football career. From his coaches, who just want him to play without getting injured again. From the fans. From his agent. And from his mother, who has popped up on the radar after leaving his family years before. And now his relationship with Kelly is on shaky ground, and that frightens Blue more than anything.

When Kelly admits he’s in love with Blue, bonds are tested, and Blue has to decide what’s really important. He doesn’t want to lose the number-one person in his life, but the cost to keep Kelly close might be more than he’s willing to pay.

It’s a good thing his nickname is the Blueprint—it’s time to draft a new set of plans.

A nice easy listen, but for a few niggles
 Independent reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted the audio file of this book. Alexander Cendese and Sean Crisden narrate. 

This is a dual narration and it's the first one I've listened to, that is dual narrated, in the male/male genre. I'm struggling to split my review into one for the book and one for the narration, like I usually do, so this is gonna all run into one!

For the most part, I enjoyed the story of Kelly, and his best friend, Blue. Kelly fell in love with Blue a long time ago, and finally admits to Blue how he really feels. Blue is then pushed to make a decision that might ruin his football career. 

Had I READ this, I would have found it a nice easy read, told in the first person from both Kelly and Blue's point of view. 

But this is an AUDIO review, and here's what I thought of the narration. 

Cendese narrates Kelly's chapters. I haven't listened to him before and, while always willing to try new narrators, I'm also a little wary. Cendese nails his narration, though! His voice for Kelly is a little higher, but I didn't mind that (crappy hearing issues!) and his voice is clear and even and he got over all the emotions and feelings very well. I didn't have to struggle to hear what was being said. 

Crisden narrates Blue's chapters. I have listened to his work before, and didn't have any trouble with those pieces but here? I found Blue's voice low, like really REALLY low and in some places it dipped way below my hearing range. Not for long, just odd sentences here and there, but enough for me to miss a few things that Blue thought about. I did manage to pick them up as the book moved along but I might not have been able to. So I struggled a bit when Blue had his voice, and it did spoil it slightly for me. I won't write Crisden off, just yet though! 

Overall, an enjoyable listen, but I think I might have enjoyed it more reading, rather than listening. 

4 stars for the book
4 stars for the narration (but 5 for Cendese and 3 for Crisden)
