Shiny! by Amy Lane

 Will Lafferty and Kenny Scalia are both having sort of a day. Will gets fired for letting fifth graders read Harry Potter, and Kenny finds his boyfriend and his sex toys in bed with a complete stranger. When Will knocks over Kenny's trash can—and strews Kenny's personal business all over the street—it feels like the perfect craptastic climax to the sewage of suckage that has rained down on them both.

But ever-friendly, ever-kind Will asks snarky Kenny out for a beer—God knows they both need one—and two amazing things occur: Kenny discovers talking to Will might be the best form of intercourse ever, and Will discovers he's gay.

Their unlikely friendship seems like the perfect platonic match until Will reveals how very much more he’s been feeling for Kenny almost since the beginning. But Kenny’s worried. Will’s new-found sexuality is bright and glittery and shiny, but what happens when that wears off? Is Will's infatuation with Kenny strong enough to stay real?
This is about Will and Kenny. Will just got fired from his teaching job and hits Kenny’s trash can that Kenny just finished throwing away his sex toys in because he found his soon to be ex-boyfriend using with another guy. Will being heterosexual and kind of a novas to the sex world was confused by most of what he was picking up. Until over drinks Kenny explains and then purchases some things for Will. Over the next nine months they first develop a friendship that turns into love and hopefully marriage.

 This was my first audio book by Amy Lane but not my first written book. And I have to say where I found the story cute I did find it long and drawn out. By the second dance at the Aunts wedding I was ready for it to be over. At the time coming in at just over 6 hours it’s not that long of an audio. I did enjoy how Will went through a self discovery and became not only a happier but healthier person on the other side. I really enjoyed the end, and not just because it was finally over. But the fact in nine months, the whole story we got it wall. The BIG HEA.

I’ve heard Tyler Stevens a couple of times and have enjoyed his voice. He has a unique sound that manages to read the stories beautifully.
