Outside Collin Fitzpatrick’s dorm room is a dangerous place. Beyond his door the students of his small, conservative college think he’s straight, as does his Catholic family who'd disown him if they learned the truth. Inside, he’s safe with his incredibly sexy roommate Tanner D’Amico. Their room makes a perfect place to hide away and fall in love. The moment they cross the line from roommates to lovers, Collin becomes caught between their heavenly passionate encounters and the hellish reality that someone might find out and destroy everything. Tanner's not used to being so confined, and wants to show the world how much he loves Collin. But Collin’s not sure he’s ready for the impact stepping outside will make.
When I had first stumbled upon this series by Karen Stivali it was after I read her free read Tonight. I fell in love with her writing style and knew that I needed to read The Moments in Time series and I was not at all disappointed.
I loved the story of Colin and Tanner! Colin is used to hiding things about himself. His conservative Catholic mom taught him that from an early age. What he finds by hiding in his room with Tanner becomes more than he thought it could ever become. But life isn’t as easy as just staying hidden from the world and the impact staying hidden can have on something wonderful, especially when live is involved. I love a coming out story; the way they develop, the growth of the characters, and how they handle the emotional and sometimes life changing events that happen.
Robert did a great job narrating this story. He was excellent at portraying through his voice the emotions that we expect to hear in this type of story. Although he didn’t give distinct and clear voices to each character he had a way with his voice that allowed that character's personality to shine through. Tanner has such a fun personality that it makes the story and their banter all the more better. Plus being able to hear those emotions, especially Colin with his coming out, added so much more to the story that didn’t come across as well with my own voice in reading.
I cannot wait to get to listen to the next two audiobooks in this series!
