Frank Moore is a rookie with the Dallas Police Department when he and his partner answer a call in Devonshire, one of the city’s more affluent neighborhoods. They think the young boy in various pictures throughout the home has been kidnapped until they find him, shaken but alive. Officer Moore recognizes the pain in the kid’s eyes, having lost his own mother to cancer when he was just a boy. He steps in, making sure Taylor is placed with a loving foster family. Over the years, Frank becomes a permanent fixture in Taylor’s life.
A decade later, the case remains unsolved and the once gangly, uncertain teenager is now a college graduate who knows exactly what he wants. He’s coming home to the man that helped mold and shape his life, the man he’s loved for as long as he can remember, Frank Moore. But Taylor isn’t the only person returning to Dallas, and while Frank is distracted by his own conflicting feelings and the new bond growing between the two, the past creeps up on them, determined to finish what was started 10 years earlier.

Really worth looking at - unique, sweet, touching
I am a fan of TM Smith’s All Cocks series and I think I was expecting this to be something like that. Well it wasn’t, but it was awesome nonetheless! This was presented in a very unique way. We start with our survivor meeting his “savior” as Taylor’s family is destroyed in front of him and Frank, a police officer, comes to his aid.
We grow up with Taylor as he deals with his tragedy and his burgeoning attraction to the older man, Frank.
Frank must also deal with his own feelings and weather what life throws his way.
To me, the amount of detail felt just right. I could totally buy the relationship between these two and though there was obvious moments of doubt and angst it wasn’t overwhelming and didn’t take the central focus in the story.
Secondarily, we are gifted with an intriguing mystery and some wonderful secondary characters.
All in all I was captivated by this story and thoroughly entertained.
As always Nick Russo does a great job with his narration. He chose a nice voice for both Taylor and Frank and handled the accents and female characters well. He’s so easy to listen to and does a terrific job with the emotions and pacing as well.
I highly recommend this as both a book and audiobook!

Book - I Love this book. I was really happy when it came out in Audio. This book really gives you a bit of everything and the writing is structured really well. It pulls you in at the beginning prologue with the intrigue of what is going to happen with the Murder of Taylors parents. Then the author gives you little snippets from all the different years/ages of Taylor’s life after his parent’s deaths so we get to watch and hear him growing up as the story goes on. And how Frank lives his life basically around Taylors but he doesn’t seem realize it till further into the story. You have some Sex, and Romance, & then your pulled right back into the suspense of what is going to happen and who did it when the bad guy from Crazy town comes back, the ending is perfect in this book. I want more of their story. I didn't want this book to finish. And.... Will there be more?!?!
Audio - Nick was a great choice as a narrator for this book!! He makes it very clear which character is speaking throughout the entire story and going back-n-forth between the two characters, it was extremely easy to follow along with this book and not get lost at all. I really believe He did a great job on this one!!

I truly enjoyed this book. From the awful beginning to the amazing end watching Taylor grow into a strong courageous man and going for what he desires was well written. i would love to see who Shannon ends up with Rand or Rory or both for that matter. To follow Frankie and Tay's life and the cold case of his parents. Nick was wonderful as always. I was given a copy for an honest review.

I enjoyed the story, which starts with a tragedy/mystery.
Taylor's parents have been murdered by an unknown person. He is helped by policemen, Frank and Caleb, who were called to the scene and put with a foster family. The story follows Taylor from his pre-teen years to adulthood, chronicling his developing feelings for Frank.
Nick J Russo does a great job with the different characters, he had a wonderful way of portraying Taylor's voice from his young age to his deeper, older self. He was also really good with the character emotions, nothing over the top, just believable. My only niggle were the non narration parts, they were sort of flat, but that's just me.
I would recommend both the story and audiobook without hesitation.
I received a copy of the audiobook for my pleasure with no obligation to review.
