What this story does have in spades is sarcastic humor, plus one bound and determined NBA star-at least he is now that he's going after what-or who-he wants. And while the way the story is written might have you wondering just how stalker-like Isaac would need to be for Rafi to run screaming in the other direction, Isaac's demeanor-especially as interpreted through the audiobook narration-and sweet attitude actually balanced things out for me. But I still didn't quite feel a connection between the two characters, which made the story 3 stars for me.
As for the audiobook narration, I really liked Robert C. Clark's interpretation, it actually made Isaac's pursuit of Rafi more palatable than reading it in the e-book. The sarcasm and Rafi's frustration are quite clear in the audio, and the character voices are well done and consistent, making the narration 4 stars for me.
I enjoyed so many things about Cardeno C's book~ the emotional connection between the two main characters, the connection between reader and MC, the love between Rafi and Isaac~ all facets I look for in a book.
Isaac’s inner monologue made me smile and chuckle and hearing it come to life by Mr. Clark’s voice made it all the more appealing.
The dynamics between the two men was palpable and endearing. Rafi’s nonchalant attitude and Isaac’s petulance~ love it.
Another sure-fire winner. Cardeno C. you make me swoon.

A five handcuff review
In this story you have Rafi, who is now a successful attorney in Emile City who grew up with Isaac who is now a famous NBA star. But what Rafi remembers about Isaac is how he bullied and tormented him through their high school years.
But Isaac remembers it differently. Not that Rafi was all wrong...just his memory is a little skewed.
So now a dozen years later Isaac has stopped running from the one thing he needs to have a life and finds Rafi so he can have his shot at forgiveness and finally get the man he'd always loved and wanted.
It's a sweet story that still has a few niggles here and there, but I'm giving it 4 stars, because anything that brings me back again and again deserves at least that.
I like Cardeno C. and these amazing short sweet romances. It's her characters that keep me coming back for more. ENJOY !!!.
As a lot of others have commented, this is too rushed, with too much back story to make it convincing going forward without a lot more words. It was all too fast and crazy. But I have another problem with it.
In the sex scenes I found the narrator, Rafi, to be oddly passive, accepting but not initiating, in a way that felt like the bad old classic Mills and Boone. I didn't like any aspect of this relationship. It was hot, Cardeno know hot to write a hot scene, but it wasn't engaging. I really feel that the short novellas are not her forte (and I know, Cardeno has not accepted a gender, but this in no way felt like it was written by a gay man, it felt totally like it was written by a woman, and that was my main problem with it)
I will buy the longer books, but I'm starting to think I will give the shorter ones a miss unless the reviews really rave.
