Summary

I spent college worrying about responsibilities and earning my teaching degree, so before graduation and moving to Atlanta with my best friend, Ross, I figure I deserve a little fun. I’ve never been with an older man, but the guy at the bar grabs my attention and doesn’t let go…for multiple rounds, all night long.

The next day, when Ross introduces me to his dad, the last thing I expect is for him to be my hookup from the night before, in town from Atlanta for his son’s graduation.

The best thing would be to pretend it never happened, which is easier said than done. The more I talk to Harrison, the more I like him. We enjoy teasing each other, spending time together, and despite how successful he is, we both know what it’s like to have nothing. Neither of us wants a relationship, so when Harrison suggests a no-strings-attached fling, it’s perfect.

But between bills, worrying about Mom, and wondering how I thought I had what it takes to be a good teacher, Harrison’s always there, even when it’s hard for me to accept help.

Falling for Harrison wasn’t part of the agreement.

I don’t know how to trust, there’s a 17-year age difference, and he’s my best friend’s dad.

No-strings-attached has never been so difficult, because I’m pretty sure I want to be tied to Harrison for good.

One again Riley Hart makes magic happen

This book is amazing- such a beautiful well written story with characters you wanna hug, know and love. It amazes me the way Riley Hart manages to always write stories, that lives in my mind and heart long after I’m done with it.
Iggy Toma is as usual a total ear candy

Wonderful!

Revisited this gem on audio and Iggy Toma was just sublime. He brought Harrison and Zander to life just capturing all the banter, emotions, and love perfectly!

I loved absolutely everything about this book! From the first page to the last. It was just lovely. It made me laugh, it made my heart happy, and it made me feel good! Riley Hart just excels at writing character driven stories where I get immersed in their lives and don't want to stop reading about them. Harrison was just such an amazing character--wonderful father, great friend, kind, caring, and just an all around great person. Zander was more complex, kept himself more bottled up, didn't want to trust or let anyone in, but was such a kind soul who just needed to allow someone to love him.
I enjoyed every second of their time together. There was fabulous dialogue, sharp-witted banter, smoking hot times, and so many swoony moments with all the feelings! There was also a fantastic cast of supporting characters that were all so wonderful, with Ross leading the pack for me. I just loved him!
If you want a low-angst, feel good, put a smile on your face and make you laugh out loud book, with a fabulous HEA, grab this! Highly recommend!

beautiful

combine Riley Hart words with Iggy Toma narration and its pure love and 🥰 perfection. Iggy gives both Harrison & Zander such distinct voices its truly heartwarming.
on to the story itself this is not my usual trope but Riley does it in a way that's truly unique and a lot of it had to do with Ross (the best friend of Zander and son of Harrison) he is so understanding and charismatic encouraging the relationship because he can even see these 2 souls belong together ❤️.

must listen

so so.so worth a credit !!! i had this on my tbr for a while and put it off. i wish i had listened earlier. it was great and sweet and hot.and just a good cry makes your heart swell type of listen. im thrilled with how the author handled the characters and didnt make them run away from each other every 5 minutes just to tease them back together with nothing.resolved.
THIS is the opposite and i couldnt be happier with it!! and the narrators dis a wonderful job. voices were amazing and they portrayed the characters excellently.

Loved the narration.

I loved Iggy Toma's performance. Great delineation of character voices, nice pacing, timing, inflection, he delivers the whole shebang. 'Strings Attached' is a cute story, and even though there's a 17-year age gap, it just felt like it worked really well here because of the character's pasts. With some light angst sprinkled towards the end that had me impatiently waiting for the characters to finally admit their feelings to each other, in the end I enjoyed the story, and I loved the audio.

Narration is so bad I can't rate the story

The biggest issue is the narrator. One character, Xander, has a high spoken voice but a deep voice when it is his thoughts. The other MC, Harrison, had a deep spoken voice but a high voice when thinking. See the problem? It was the same voice! It was so difficult to tell when Xander was thinking and Harrison was talking that I gave up at chapter 2. Then tried again because I was on a road trip. I gave up again at chapter 9 because the story was too hard to follow because I would wonder why Xander said something but it turned out it was a thought of Harrison. Then I just quit entirely and wished I could get my money back. Maybe it's better if you've read it first.

Hard to finish

Iggy always delivers, so no issues there! I've enjoyed Riley Hart books before, but this one... It was cringy. 95% of the story is just to drive home how wonderful this older rich man was, and how amazing the poor younger guy is. Like who owns a bunch of car lots and just thinks, "I feel like giving away cars to poor people today!" ?! That's exactly how out of the blue and over the top it was presented. Don't get me started on this looser mom that lets some man walk all over her and her kids over and over again! The whole time her son is singing her praises and talking about how hard her life is and how hard she tries. Not one of the characters felt real or genuine. If a poor, struggling person started dating someone who owned ALL the cars, has a shitty car that brakes down, they would NOT hesitate to except the gift of a car! FFS! The whole thing is just... CRINGE! 🤢

Teachers Rock

Iggy Toma and Riley Hart together is perfect perfection. I loved that Zander had such a passion for teaching. As a teacher myself it is not any easy job and often times such a challenge to motivate students! Thanks Riley for showing a true side of teachers! We know going in we’ll never get rich but we are enriching the lives of those we see every day!

The best!

I absolutely loved everything about this audiobook! All the feelings!! Iggy Toma did an amazing job narrating this book, I love every minute of this audio! This book is a age gap, dad’s best friend, low angst and super steamy!!! The story between Zander and Harrison was simply amazing, I can describe the many emotions that they make me feel, their journey was so lovely and full of happy moments, they make me smile, laugh and cry with them! Oh my heart! I love this two! Harrison was such an amazing character, great dad, good friend, and an amazing friend and lover for Zander, he was so caring and wants to be there for him but respect his boundaries. Zander was a very complex character, he kept everything bottled up, he was afraid of trusting others and didn’t let anyone in, it hurt my heart watching him struggle, but he was a kind soul and he just need to realize that he was important and others really care for him.
I like that there was no drama between Zander and Ross how was is best friend and the relationship between him and his dad, also the relationship between Harrison and his son really good. The communication between all of them was very enjoyable and I love the dialogues between them. The banter between Zander and Harrison were amazing they really complement each other, the sexy times were so hot and steamy! This was an amazing and emotional journey, with a great HEA!!!!! I highly recommended!!!
