Deacon Miller never had it all - he never really believed he could. Growing up in a broken home with an alcoholic mother and a revolving door of truly pathetic father figures taught him to keep his expectations low. Now at 27, on the night before Christmas Eve, his life is turned upside down yet again; his boyfriend has dumped him, he just fled the holiday family reunion from hell, and now to top it all off, a blizzard has left him stranded in an airport hotel.
Steve Steele has spent the better part of his 44 years living a lie, ignoring his attraction to other men in an attempt to fit into the mold of the man he thought he should be, instead of living life as the man he knew himself to be. Recently divorced after coming home from work one day and coming out to his wife, Steve has floundered over the past year, desperately attempting to wade through the guilt and find the courage to start again. That's when a chance meeting in a hotel bar brings two lonely men together...and what should've been a one night stand turns into something much more than either one ever expected.
Good Story, Not Good Narration
The Story here is good. The narrator is terrible (sorry!). Each sentence has exactly the same cadence with a dragged out last or second to last syllable. I tried to get past it.. but no dice. Sorry Ethan Day, I really want to hear your story, but I just can’t listen.
