Description

When interior designer David Snyder buys a beautiful century-old house in eastern Washington, he is reeling with heartbreak and looking for somewhere to put down roots. Unfortunately his new home comes with a laundry list of problems: electrical, plumbing, heating...things David knows nothing about. When his mother offers him the business card of a local handyman, David pictures an overweight, balding man in his fifties. But Jackson Henry couldn't be further from that stereotype.

Dark-haired, muscular, and handsome, Jackson left a large construction firm in Seattle to take care of his sick mother. However, his hometown still has an active "good old boy" network, and finding employment in construction is almost impossible for an openly gay man. Determined to persevere, Jackson takes odd jobs as a handyman. He's exactly what David needs - in more ways than one.

David isn't ready for his attraction to Jackson, not considering the way his last relationship ended. But as the two men get to know each other, it becomes clear that the heart often knows best, and it rewards those willing to listen.

Beautiful love story

Great interaction with friends and family. Enjoyed the feeling of a real life setting with the background characters, plus neighbors.

Really lovely book and an excellent performance!

What a sweet, sexy and sentimental book! I just loved this so much! This is kind of a mutual hurt/comfort story about two guys who’ve had it a bit rough. David’s ex is really an asshole and he (later) really turns out to be more than just a bad break up. Jackson’s family makes his life hard and makes him feel inadequate. Together, with the help of their wonderful mothers, the two find their place in life and love.

I thought the romance was sweet, organic and sensual. The bit with David’s ex was a bit OTT but… it also reminds us that this stuff can happen in real life and it pays to be safe.

The stuff about the houses was interesting too. Having been a homeowner, I could relate to the never ending list of fixes and thought that having a new handyman boyfriend would be any homeowner’s secret fantasy!

I loved David’s mom and that David was unapologetic about it and that Jackson appreciated it too. The solution that they find at the end is perfect and we get a lovely sense of the coming couples (I’m talking about you Gil!) in future books.

If you want a fairly low angst, high romance story – this is for you!

4.5 of 5 stars

Audio

Michael Pauley is an excellent narrator. He has a great sense of timing and emotion and knows how to give the right emphasis on words and phrases to really draw a listener in. I liked the voices he selected for David and Jackson and felt the females and other secondary characters were excellent as well.

This is a great way to enjoy this great story.

A beautiful, erotic story of love .

I have to admit , I was a bit reluctant about picking up this audio book . Usually these "gay" romance books are very poorly written and have razor thin written characters . I was very pleasantly surprised to find this book completely engrossing.. The characters well thought out and the story well conceived. I found myself enraptured by the pure romance of this book. My heart was full of love for these two characters that I was rooting for them the very beginning. The writer paced the story very well and did not rush anything to get to the more "erotic" stuff. I highly recommend this book to any and all looking for a story of inspiration and love. Rob -Kips Bay, NYC

Loved it!

Any additional comments?

I absolutely loved listening to this story!

I loved Michael Pauley's character voices, which felt spot on and not at all over the top. I loved his pacing, his timing, and the emotion he infuses into the dialogue and story.

This is absolutely going into my re-listen auto-rotation.

This just worked for me. The characters are all sharply written, the dialogue, the scenes, the sex, the side plots...everything was just absolutely lovely. I loved David and Jackson, and their relationship was such an organic build. It never felt too slow, and it just thoroughly entertained me from start to finish.

I loved the HEA and really, really hope Diana Copeland will continue this as a series.

Absolutely recommended!

The money pit that led to love

I read this when it first came out and loved it. I loved listening to it just as much. The narration is smooth, well paced and kept my attention enough to listen in one sitting.

I love all these characters, the plot is rather predictable but the characters so intriguing it doesn’t matter.

I can’t wait for more stories about these guys.

A fun if not memorable romance

This was a decent story of a man claiming his identity in the result of a bad breakup. There were lots of really great moments, the relationship between David and Jackson was sweet and there was a good mixture of romance and smut. However one of the issues for me was there many secondary characters (Jackson's brother, Jackson's sister, etc) who really feel under-developed and added little if anything to the core plot.

Review on „David, Renewed“ - Audio Book Version

Was hat Ihnen das Hörerlebnis von David, Renewed besonders unterhaltsam gemacht?

One should never buy a century-old house on impulse and skipping all the inspection tours. That's what David learns instantly with no heating, ice cold showers and no morning coffee. His new house seems to have more repair issues than sweet neighbour's dog Boots has fleas. Luckily he finds Jackson, a calm, hard working and very capable former construction worker. The more problems with electric wires, plumbing and a leaking roof, the longer Jackson is staying and working for him. Both men are slowly but irresitebly drawn to each other. Soon David's mother finds herself supporting Jackson's ill mother while Jackson tries to protect David from his cheating ex-boyfriend Trevor, who turns into a nasty stalker with rather dangerous ambitions.

Wie hat Ihnen Michael Pauley als Sprecher gefallen? Warum?

Michael Pauley does a stunning job with this narration.His deeper voice is just perfect for those tall, strong but gentle ,soft spoken guys like Jackson&Gil and at the same time his lighter voice variation for younger David&Michael is so fresh.When Mr Pauley lends his voice to the women characters of the story or the outright bonehead characters it doesn't sound forced at any time either. Amazing! Thanks to his narration this already warm, emotional story becomes even more impressive and deep, wanting you to listen to it on and on and on....

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Diana Copland has a magical gift to write stories that keep pulling you into them right away. Her MC s are no superheros, just normal people like you and me. She portaits them so vividly that you feel like being right next to David, Jackson and their families and friends during the whole story.
