Narrated by Joel Leslie
Length: 6 hours 4 mins
Release date: 3 September 2015
A mutual interest in art draws two shy university students together. Ben admires Vinnie's painting of the university building, so Vinnie invites him to an exhibition of his artwork. From a wealthy family, Ben purchases some of Vinnie's art and arranges for the artist to personally hang the paintings in his apartment.
Starry, starry night....
Ben commissions Vinnie to paint his portrait, in order to spend more time with the artist. On the night of the sitting, Vinnie fingerpaints the starry night on Ben's chest... and they kiss. They begin a relationship beneath the night sky, God's own canvas.
But every relationship has its ups and downs and so it is with theirs. When Ben thinks Vinnie spends too much time with a fellow artist, his jealousy drives a wedge between them and forces Vinnie into the very thing Ben dreads.
Hold tight to your dreams....
Ben and Vinnie will have to walk through fire before they can find one another again. But if they believe, and if they keep their faith in the night sky and each other, just maybe they can make their dreams of love come true.
Vinnie was someone who was very independent, and seemed to begrudge anything Ben did to try and help him. In the beginning, things were going well with Vinnie and Ben, and then Vinnie began being secretive. Ben did overreact to Vinnie being secretive, especially as he was spending a lot of time with an artist friend called James, and in the end a huge argument ended with Vinnie walking out.
Ben was totally devastated by Vinnie walking out, and almost fell apart. He believed that Vinnie was now seeing James, and he was completely lost in a world of pain and heartbreak. Ben has absolutely no idea of how to speak to Vinnie, and what he could do to rectify things. Vinnie was ignoring all the calls from Ben, and this seemed to depress Ben even more. Even Vinnie’s brothers Finn and Theo try to help, but to no avail, Vinnie seems to like his new life with James.
However, as the saying goes…. looks can be deceiving, and this was very much the case with the new relationship between James and Vinnie. They always looked happy together, but if someone was to look harder, they may have seen this was not the case. Ben tried to rebuild his life, one without Vinnie, as he was convinced that he had lost him forever. The early hours of one morning changes things considerably, when Ben receives a frantic telephone call from Vinnie’s brother Theo.
I am not going to spoil things to say what has happened, but at this point of the audio, I was literally growling at anyone who tried to talk to me, as I had to listen to what happened next!! To me, this book was one that showed how wonderful a relationship can be, and how easily when not trusting your partner, things can go downhill very fast. I must also mention the narrator here too, as I have listened to quite a few audio books now, and I hope that I get to hear more from this narrator in the future, as his voice was quick to draw me into the story I was listening to.
