When Eli Block steps into his parents’ living room and sees his childhood crush sitting on the couch, he starts a shameless campaign to seduce the young rabbi. Unfortunately, Seth Cohen barely remembers Eli and he resolutely shuts down all his advances. As a tenuous and then binding friendship forms between the two men, Eli must find a way to move past his unrequited love while still keeping his best friend in his life. Not an easy feat when the same person occupies both roles.
Professional, proper Seth is shocked by Eli’s brashness, overt sexuality, and easy defiance of societal norms. But he’s also drawn to the happy, funny, light-filled man. As their friendship deepens over the years, Seth watches Eli mature into a man he admires and respects. When Seth finds himself longing for what Eli had so easily offered, he has to decide whether he’s willing to veer from his safe life-plan to build a future with Eli.
*Walk With Me is set in the Home series where the books are linked by theme or world. They are independent and can be read in any order.
I have no idea why I haven’t read every single one of Cardeno C’s books back to back. I have loved every single thing of hers that I have read. And Walk With Me was no exception. It is the last in the Home Story collection, but the first one I have actually delved into.
I listened to this one, almost in one sitting (which is rare for me) because I laughed so much through it. The things that Seth has to deal with as a rabbi are so ridiculous, yet so true! The scene from the first wedding where Seth and Eli meet up, I’ve seen video of that, it actually happened!
These two “officially” meet when Eli is just too young for Seth, understandably so. So, since Eli could do nothing else but love Seth from afar, they slowly became friends, years of working through all their trials and tribulations, they were able to connect romantically. Until they made a mess of it again. 🙂 But as all CC books, there is a happy ending, and this one made me cry!
With audio books, the narration is so key, and Alexander Collins did a marvelous job with this book. His voice was rich, and varied, and he was able to give inflections to both characters very well. It really helped draw me even further into a story, that I was excited to listen to either way.
Both the story aspects, as well as the narration aspects were perfect for me. I laughed, I cried, and I enjoyed the narration. Couldn’t have enjoyed this book more.

Cardeno C. – CC to friends – is a hopeless romantic who wants to add a lot of happiness and a few “awwws” into a reader’s day. Writing is a nice break from real life as a corporate type and volunteer work with gay rights organizations. Cardeno’s stories range from sweet to intense, contemporary to paranormal, long to short, but they always include strong relationships and walks into the happily-ever- after sunset.
Cardeno’s Home, Family, and Mates series have received awards from Love Romances and More Golden Roses, Rainbow Awards, the Goodreads M/M Romance Group, and various reviewers. But even more special to CC are heartfelt reactions from readers, like, “You bring joy and love and make it part of the every day.”
