Blurb: Nash is the reliable one in the Holly family, the guy everyone counts on to keep things going. His genius twin brother is off at university, so Nash runs the family’s auto repair business and cares for his partially-paralyzed little sister while his crackpot father invents. His life seems mapped out for the foreseeable future, however much that might chafe.
So when Wolf’s Landing actor Spencer Kepler-Constantine lands in his life, Nash is ready for a diversion. Spencer is in the middle of a very painful, very public divorce and isn’t ready for a relationship—not that Nash wants one. But they both need a friend, especially one with benefits.
As they grow closer, Nash starts to see his family in a whole new light. Do they really need him so badly? Or does he simply need to be needed? Then Spencer’s ex reappears with a grand romantic gesture, and Nash has to figure out what he wants—and how to get it—before Spencer’s gone for good.
Review – Book: Susan reviewed this previously here.
I agree with her assessment. But I also wished that there’d been a bit more groveling at the end and a bit more convincing done to Nash to give up his entire life to be Spencer’s boyfriend. It went so easily and fast! I was glad to see that Nash knew himself well enough to realize that the lifestyle suited him and didn’t let his ego get in the way, but I wanted Spencer to appreciate Nash more.
I concur that Healy needs his own story next – so – here’s hoping!
Review – Audio: I just plain love Nick J. Russo. I know anytime he narrates I’ll like it. I even got a book I knew I wouldn’t like (not this one!) because he narrated it and it made it entertaining if not excellent. 😉 He does a fine job with the British and other accents here and as always makes the story really feel like you’re part of it’s telling.
I highly recommend this as the best way to experience this story.
Overall Impression: I really liked it
