"He was like if water caught fire—a beautiful anomaly. It was gorgeous. Danny wanted to exist inside that explosion and let himself be consumed by it." Like Water Catching Fire.
From the blurb:
"He was like if water caught fire—a beautiful anomaly. It was gorgeous. Danny wanted to exist inside that explosion and let himself be consumed by it."
With his life upended at the sight of his cheating boyfriend, Danny Zhou flees across the country with two million dollars in his bank account, and a broken heart to mend.
Danny was never the sort of man who was supposed to make it rich. He was a simple guy with dreams of teaching literature, a cute husband, and maybe a dog or two. At the end of an accidentally viral app, everything he'd dreamt of doing went down the drain, and he learns just how true the saying is: "Money does not buy happiness."
Uncertain where his future lies, Danny hopes to start over. He expects to do a lot of soul-searching, and thinks maybe volunteering at the Fire Station he'd worked at during his freshman year of college will help him find some direction. He most definitely does not expect Jamie, the stoic, gorgeous, Deaf fire fighter with a chip on his shoulder the size of Texas, and trust issues a hundred miles wide, who seems less than thrilled to have Danny on his team. Will working together lead to a happy ending, or will Danny find that true love just isn't in his cards?
In true E.M. fashion, an emotionally intense story of an admirable disabled individual who finds love when least expected with an understanding and nonjudgmental person. This is what made me fall in love with their stories from the beginning, and a first audio experience from them hooked me even more.
The narrator of Like Water Catching Fire was absolutely perfect! Their ability of various voices for numerous characters was impeccably handled, adding to the excitement of the characters. Jamie and Danny’s families brought a great amount of depth to such an intense story. Ten stars for a passionate storyline with a beautiful connection and a pleasurable happy ever after!
