And you get: One HELL-raising cocktail of trouble.   

Welcome to my life. Please drink responsibly.

3.5 stars

I ended up liking this book far more than I expected, with how it was at the start. It’s almost like it dragged the feelings out of me as the story went on. Let’s face it, Matthew is a bit of a knob, and his choices are like those of a teenager rather than someone in their mid/late twenties. But once I started seeing him more like someone with ADHD and an irrepressibly impulsive personality, I actually softened towards him and felt an affectionate urge to wish him a better future. If I knew him in real life I would see him as a loveable rogue who made bad decisions easily if led astray. Like 10 year old.

I think his “woe is me, I hate my parents, my parents hate me” outlook was far too pubescent for me to get past enough to give a higher rating, though. Maybe that would have worked if he was younger. However his relationships were surprisingly well developed and believable and the writing and story were a lot better than I expected compared to other books in this genre.

Whilst writing this review I’ve upgraded the rating from 3 to 4 stars (as I can’t give a half star) because it has made a lasting impression.

Hot!

Hot!! I love to read Daryl Banner, He is one of my favorite authors. I had the audio version of this story. Matthew is a playboy, and borderline addict. While Matthew is with his sister at her school he sees this hot, sexy teacher named Charlie. This book is written in Matthew's POV. This book was so raw and so full of feelings that I couldn't put it down. I was hooked from the very first chapter. I found that Chris Chambers really did an amazing job on this one. I could here exactly hear and feel how Matthew was feeling. If you love reading about MM Then this is the one for YOU! I can't wait to read more from Daryl Banner soon. Keep up the amazing work!

Loved it

With the details and descriptions, the author painted such a clear picture of the story. Matthew is such a hot mess but so lovable. Chris Chambers' narration is on point.

Such a Great Story!!!

I so want all of Daryl’s books get made into a movie, but uncensored (of course). The story was good, the love story was moving and touching, and the erotic element was FIRE!

A must listen!

This is easily my favorite Daryl Banner book. The cover is gorgeous. The audiobook narration is perfect. The characters and story are interesting and well written.

This is a story of grief and sibling relationships and finding oneself and unconditional love. The drama comes from outside of the romantic relationship which I always appreciate, especially with a story that has a lot of moving parts. Charlie is an absolute rock for both Matthew and Helen. I love the way he loves Matthew! Matthew’s “voice” and sass make for a hilarious narration, even during the heavier parts of the book. His journey through dealing with the death of his parents felt real and authentic. And he is so open with his emotions; gotta love a man who can be vulnerable.

I highly recommend. I loved it from start to finish.

This one grabs you from the get go

If you were ever young and gay this is you or someone that was close to you. My dear friend Pablo is Mathew in real life. He is all of us and the decisions we make and lives we lead, the story is so good you can't put it down in places. There are parts that are cringe worthy for the writing of the characters actions. And parts that are too repetitive. Though overall a great read.

Wow.

I've always liked Daryl Banner's work but this one really did it for me. The lackadaisical drama juxtaposed by the steamy sex, plain-worded emotional arch and the family love made for a cocktail I will definitely indulge in again. And the narration? Or should I say voice acting? Choice. As always. Thanks guys.

Delightful!!!

Matthew was a delight to get to know. I haven't listened to a lot of books compared to most but I loved the fact Matthew addresses us, the audience. I'm basically a newbie and have found favorite narrators and Chris is someone I had heard before. This story kept me engaged and entertained and quite amused! I will seek out more Daryl Banner and narration by Chris Chambers 😊
