Michael Rodriguez and Nunzio Medici have been friends for two decades. From escaping their dysfunctional families in the working-class neighborhood of South Jamaica, Queens to teaching in one of the city’s most queer friendly schools in Brooklyn, the two men have shared everything. Or so they thought until a sweltering night of dancing leads to an unexpected encounter that forever changes their friendship.
Now, casual touches and lingering looks are packed with sexual tension, and Michael can’t forget the feel of his best friend’s hands on him. Once problems rear up at work and home, Michael finds himself seeking constant escape in the effortless intimacy and mind-blowing sex he has with Nunzio. But things don’t stay easy for long.
When Michael’s world begins to crumble in a sea of tragedy and complications, he knows he has to make a choice: find solace in a path of self-destruction or accept the love of the man who has been by his side for twenty years.
I have mixed feelings about this audiobook. I liked the narration, that doesn’t seemed to be much of a problem. I liked the voices given to the characters, the pace and most of it. I did feel like there were times when I got a little confused about who was talking but it didn’t happened too often. This was the first time I listen to an audio of a book I’d read and I think that might be most of the problem. I loved the book and when I read it, I felt heartbroken and just loved how much emotions there was on it. I didn’t feel it the same way this time around. I don’t know if it had something got do with the fact I’d read it or if there was something about the narration. But there was something that just didn’t allow me to love it as much as I loved the book. It might be something personal, I don’t know if other reader might feel the same way. It was the first time I listen to the narrator and it was a good first experience.
