When a brutal attack from a jealous competitor leaves Noah Strauss, darling of the modeling world, physically scarred and emotionally damaged, he quits the runway to become a psychologist. Using his contacts from his time in the spotlight, he creates One Call Away, a radio show dedicated to gay men looking for love, advice or someone to talk to. But with secrets of his own and a mother who refuses to understand the career path he’s chosen, the one person Noah can’t seem to help is himself.
On a drunken dare from the senior partner’s grandson, Oren Leavitt calls Noah’s radio show, pretending to be gay. Only Oren isn’t certain if he’s pretending. He’s left his strict Orthodox Jewish upbringing behind, but the guilt remains. Guilt that his actions have prevented his sister from finding a husband and guilt that he’s failed his parents. Talking to “Dr. Noah” helps, and as he finds himself calling the man again and again, he knows he must be honest. But Oren is unsure if he’s lying to Noah or himself.
For Noah, trust is paramount; he’s been deceived in his personal and professional life and while he desperately wants to help Oren, he also finds himself falling for the sweet and tortured man. Oren is trapped: he risks losing his job and more importantly the love and security of his family but knows he can’t hide if if wants to be with Noah. When unresolved heartaches from the past rise up to control the present, Noah and Oren discover that love often comes from the most unexpected places, and sometimes a call for help not only saves a life, it can be a new and beautiful beginning.
With One Call Away nailed it Felice Stevens again. With a great way of writing she takes the reader into her story, gives them lovable character and a believable plot.
What I really appreciate about Felice Stevens’ stories are the details in her stories. In this book we have several reappearing character, many we love and care about. It felt like a small family reunion and in every line and on every page you could feel the deep connection the character have with each other.
But also her precise decriptions of a religion, which is a bit foreign and unknown for me was great in this book and a major part. It is heart clenching how Oren has to deal with racist comments and other ugly behaviour by his colleagues.
Oren and Noah are a great couple and it is truly sweet how they build up their relationship. From a lose friendship, starting with the one phone call by Oren the both revealed how much connected they really are.
It is hot as hell but also sweet as candy to see the two guys together and the problems Oren has to face are real, as well as Noah’s complaints on the first hand.
A really awesome read, the minor character also have their screentime and are no substitutes or just supporting rose.
I could say more to the story but I would take away a lot of the magic moments, a lot of the thrill. I can only say I truly recommend it to everyone.
A book full of compassion, passion and sweet, deep emotions. 5 out of 5 stars.

Author bio – Felice Stevens
I have always been a romantic at heart. I believe that while life is tough, there is always a happy ending around the corner, My characters have to work for it, however. Like life in NYC, nothing comes easy and that includes love, but getting there is oh so fun and oh so sexy.
I live in New York City with my husband and two children. My day begins with a lot of caffeine and ends with a glass (or two of red wine). I practice law but daydream of a time when I can sit by a beach somewhere and write beautiful stories of men falling in love. Although there are bound to be a few bumps along the way, a Happily Ever After is always guaranteed.
