Blurb: Miki St. John’s life has been turned upside down, but it’s the best thing that’s ever happened to him.
His best friend, Damien Mitchell, is back from the dead. He has a dog named Dude. And more importantly, he and his lover, SFPD Inspector Kane Morgan, now share Miki’s converted warehouse.
For the first time ever, Miki’s living a happy and normal-ish life, but when Valentine’s Day rolls around, Miki realizes he knows next to nothing about being domestic or domesticated. Nothing about the traditional lover’s holiday makes sense to him, but Miki wants to give Kane a Valentine’s Day the man will never forget.
Can he pull off a day of wine and roses? Or will his screwed-up childhood come back and bite Miki in the ass?
I pretty much agree with Nikyta’s review.
I’d add that I didn’t mind the sexing at all. 🙂
I love Miki’s relationship with the Morgans and am always touched by Donal’s contributions to Miki’s healing process.
Without giving anything away, I did a happy dance when Miki gave Sionn his second gift… yippee!!
One other thing, though I absolutely love it, sometimes I think the amount of “sharing” the boys do of their feelings is a little…unrealistic. Small thing, just saying.
Otherwise, like the rest of Rhys’ work, this is amazing and I have already read it/listened to it 4 times.
Oh man. Tristan James. He is the vocal equivalent of crack for me. I have every one of his narrations (luckily they are great stories, too) simply because I adore his voice. His cadence is superb and his intonation is like butter. I love his accents (even when they wobble a bit) and the bit of “acting” he does as he reads the emotional parts is just right.
I can’t say enough positive things about this narration or his others and I highly, highly recommend his work.
For the book, I give a solid 5 of 5 stars, for the narration, 5 of 5 stars, overall, 5 of 5 stars. (Actually, I’d give it a six if I could!)
Overall Impression: It was Amazing!
