Sean Bielecki has built a new life, leaving an infamous identity and painful past behind. Now Sommelier Wines is Sean’s dream. And after taking in Bobby, a homeless teenager who was attacked in the alley behind his store, parental instincts wake in him that didn’t know he had, giving him new courage and direction. Officer Sam Davis has been watching Sean for a while-not because of his past-but because Sam wants to be a part of his life now. Sam finally asks Sean out, and they seem to click, but Sean is haunted by his memories. It all comes to a head when the man who attacked Bobby returns, awakening Sean’s buried fears, which are compounded by a hateful ex and a new lover who puts his life on the line for others. Can Sean come to terms with his past and present to move into the future? Or will his dream of love end before it starts?

I have to say I really enjoyed this story. There was a lot going on, but it worked. Sean has to deal with a jerk boyfriend when he takes in a homeless kid because he simply couldn’t let the kid go back to the streets after he stops an attempted rape.
The way Sean takes care of Bobby made my heart swell. It was really special and I wish more people had it in them to help people when they were at their worst.
Sam was special in his own way. There for Sean and supporting his decisions. He helped him get over his traumatic past so sweetly.
The twist with Bobby was crazy and completely unexpected and I loved the surprise.
However, that being said. I have to admit that the narrator is what made me mark the book down. While he did excellent with some parts of the story, others weren’t so great and I felt like it really didn’t add to the story or make it better.
Narrator: 3 Stars
Story: 5 Stars
Overall: 5 Stars
