by Sam Burns
Narrated by Gabriel Amari

Listening Length: 6 hours and 27 minutes.

On the same night that Alex finds himself disowned and sleeping on his best friend’s couch, he meets Liam, who saves him from being mugged. It’s a strange time to start a relationship, but everything about Liam feels right. When it becomes apparent that Liam isn’t the prince charming he seems to be, Alex has to deal with some hard truths about not just his new boyfriend, but his own history as well.

Liam is just trying to do his job, but everything keeps getting in the way. First, he gets assigned to watch some stranger, then somehow, he finds himself dating the guy. Even if it doesn’t offend the boss, Liam knows the wrong thing to do when he does it. He finds himself wondering, though: is his job really the most important thing in his life, or can he walk away from it all for a brand new relationship?

Straight from the Heart contains sexual scenes, and is intended for audience age 18 and up.

A great listen!!

A thrilling adventure, with an undercover cop and sweet and somewhat clueless musician.

This was an interesting read. I enjoyed the balance between thrill and feelings and felt these characters were relatable and unique. I really liked Alex. He’s somewhat naive and innocent, yet surprisingly smart and observant. I loved that he hadn’t even thought about sex, sexuality or relationships until a (not quite) chance encounter sparks his interest. I found his “coming too” his sexuality moment wonderful done and even a bit humorous!! I loved that he’s 23 and had no clue he was gay or bi or something else. It made for a unique first time and first relationship.

I loved Liam and his care and curiosity of Alex. His undercover cop side was balanced well with his caring nature and lack of ability to lie, which made for some funny moments. I liked the character development between Liam and Alex and the journey they take together. I loved their first meeting and was interested to see where they’d go and Sam doesn’t disappoint. I look forward to the other reads in this series and hope to see more of Alex and Liam in the future!!
