    Bonfires has been on my to-read list for a while now, so when I saw the opportunity to review the audiobook version, I was stoked. Even better, it features a reliable, favorite narrator of mine. So yeah, I went in expecting great things…and I wasn’t disappointed in the least. The plot, characters, and style immediately drew me in. I love having different heroes, so two single, older fathers getting a shot of finding love later in life intrigued me. The men were both incredibly personable with distinct backstories which made for an unexpected but fantastic couple. Things between Larx and Aaron were never rushed because they both have families and professional careers to consider, and I loved seeing the feelings, chemistry, and sexual tension build between these two. The wait was certainly worthwhile to; this was a feel good couple who warmed my heart and sometimes heated my cheeks. I also enjoyed the side plot in Bonfires. It added some unanticipated conflict to the story, and created opportunity for relationship and character growth. For the most part, it didn’t feel contrived and certainly fit with the stereotypical small town mentality. I liked that things weren’t too easy for this couple, considering neither were publicly out, if it had been all flowers and sunshine, I think my interest may have waned. I also liked that the conflict and town’s response eventually balanced for a satisfying conclusion. The pacing, writing, and dialogue throughout Bonfires was steady with a nice flow. Aaron and Larx’s voices were distinct and echoed their individual personalities and even secondary characters had distinct voices that fit with their age and experience. I really loved that that author worked humor into the exchanges. It livened up the dialogue and made the characters more vibrant and relatable. Additionally, it helped balance the tone when the conflicts turned up in intensity, keeping any angst from weighing down the plot. Mr. Russo’s narration echoed the smooth writing style of Miss Lane, and he delivered a flawless performance. I was easily able to distinguish between speakers and whose point of view I was hearing, and the dialogue was delivered with a lively tempo that brought the scenes to life. Bonfires is definitely worth the read, not too easy or sweet, but not overly filled with angst or drama, and I HIGHLY recommend the audiobook version. *Reviewed audiobook for Alpha Book Club*
