Coddiwomple by S.E. Harmon; Narrated by Nick Hudson

Two guys late in life search for a resolution. Journey and Cameron are ex's who care for each other but have lifestyles that don't fit together.

From the Coddiwomple blurb:

As a wildlife photographer, Journey "JJ" Sutton never stays in one place too long. The world is his classroom, and he’s living his dream. His only regret is that he had to sacrifice the love of his life to do it. But as the saying goes, you can never go home again. That’s until there’s a family emergency, and he has to…well, go home again. His easy breezy lifestyle gets complicated fast. It certainly doesn’t help that his ex-fiancé has bought the house next door.

After an unstable childhood, Cameron Foster loves small-town life. He has everything he needs in his vet practice, his friends, and his animals. Despite what numerous exes seem to think, he’s not still in love with Journey. And so what if they add “benefits” to their friendship? As long as he keeps his heart out of the equation, everything should be fine.

Too bad Journey's not onboard with that plan. With summer ending, he has to convince Cameron that this is more than just a fling. This time around, he knows what he wants. He wants a second chance. He wants forever. Most of all, he wants Cameron’s heart.

Journey may have put away his passport, but things are just getting interesting.

Reed Kaye's review:

Journey is a successful photographer. He has traveled the world wide but is feeling he has missed something. When he has to deal with a family emergency he finds himself faced with his ex.

Cameron is Journey’s ex who has become a sort of member of Journey’s family. He gets faced with his past decisions when he has to interact with Journey again.

This is a heartbreaking story. Journey’s early life is faced with responsibility that he couldn’t wait to escape. Cameron also has a sad past. He could have gone with Journey but his life is with his hometown and career.

I loved Journey and was glad the author resolved his family relationships. I really appreciate how the backgrounds and current issues were well explained.

The narration by Nick Hudson fit these personalities perfectly.
