Publisher's Summary

When a bookworm on borrowed time meets a younger free-spirited chicken farmer, sparks and feathers fly....

Harrison Phillip Fletcher III isn't supposed to be here. Not in Burlington, Vermont, not running Vino & Veritas, a quaint inclusive bookstore and wine bar, and definitely not still alive, at 42. Also not supposed to be here? An unexpected delivery of chickens.

Finn Barnes knows chickens. The burly organic farmer knows all about rare breed poultry, but dealing with a hot older bookseller is an entirely different matter. City-slicker types like Harrison never end up staying in Vermont for the long-term.

They should steer clear of each other. But the flare of attraction is mutual. And somehow amid book discussions and farm tours, they discover plenty in common. Now they're stealing kisses in Finn's barn, sneaking out like teens, and burning up the sheets.

What starts as a fling brings very real feelings for two lonely souls, but a future together seems as unlikely as chickens in a bookstore. Feathers may be flying, but learning to trust takes time neither may have. Can they take a leap of faith together before it's too late?

Contains mature themes.

Read the book instead

It's a sweet story and I probably would have enjoyed it more (possibly a lot more) if I'd read this instead of listening to it. The narration completely ruined the story. Kirt Graves delivery is well paced, and his intonation is good. My problem with his delivery is his need to speak in such precise, fully enunciated words that it throws me utterly out of the story and reminds me with every word that someone is narrating a story to me. I can't get lost in the story. Alexander Cendese, on the other hand, overacts EVERYTHING in this story, and his pacing is so fast it made keeping track of who was speaking almost impossible. Seriously, please save yourself the time and the credit and read this book.

Inconsistent characterization

The story was good and well written. It’s a little more superficial than I expected from this author, but still very enjoyable. Not sure about the narration. I love both narrators and if one or the other had done it all, I think it would have worked out better. These two have such different styles the characters seemed to change personalities depending on who was speaking. Maybe I just have to get use to them reading together... they can’t all be Teddy & Jacob.

Story had potential

The story had potential, however like other reviews have alluded to, it fell flat. I was hoping to like the audio version better than the written, however the narration killed it for me. I really wish narrators of MM romance would deviate from the effeminate voice for smaller (in size) and “softer” characters even when they aren’t written that way. It reeks of hetero-normative beliefs.

Interesting characters and story

I enjoyed that this was low in angst but high on character development. I also enjoyed how Albert was able to get me to believe how these two very different characters were able to build a strong relationship. Cendese (one of my favorites) and Graves (becoming a favorite) did an excellent job.

I never really feel like I got to know anyone

the book wasn't bad but I never really feel like I got to know anyone it seemed almost paint by numbers in terms of its plot points. . the high point was the narration these two always do outstanding work and the tradition continues
