Charlie Sunshine is the story of two twenty-seven-year-old best friends who have known each other since they were children who unexpectedly find themselves aware of one another in a totally non-platonic way once they start living together. Charlie Burroughs is a librarian with a sunny personality who can't seem to find someone to share his life with. He wants to be seen for more than his good looks and his epilepsy. Outside of his family, the one person who loves and accepts him wholeheartedly is his best friend, Mikhail Lebedinsky. For all of Charlie's effervescence, Misha is stoic in the face of responsibilities to his family and snarky when it comes to others, yet these two get each other like no one else ever could. Will sharing a flat shine new light on their close relationship or could this be a case of being too close for comfort for these two?
I was absolutely smitten with Charlie and Misha's story. Lily Morton's patented style of writing M/M romance was ever present, with wonderful, lighthearted humor and a smidgen of angst (enough to satisfy even someone as addicted to angst as moi). Oh, and did I mention that Charlie and Misha's story was all about the slow burn. Uh-huh. Delish and decadent, as only Morton can do. Plus we've got the uber talented Joel Leslie narrating, and let me tell you, my ears are forever tingling with joy when he does all his voiceover magic whilst bringing Charlie and Misha to life. This fab friends-to-lovers romance inspired a smile to pop out and laughter to bubble over while I was listening to it, which is why I'm giving Charlie Sunshine five stars.
