Are you tired of searching for your soul mate? Do you feel like love is just out of your reach? If so, you're not alone. In Marie Sexton's audiobook, 'Spare the Rod', we follow the journey of Gray Andino, a Denver cop who is desperate to find his perfect partner. But with a complicated past and a need to argue everything, finding love seems impossible. Instead, Gray settles for meaningless encounters and BDSM relationships. However, when a young man named Avery Barron enters his life, everything changes.

A Not-So-Perfect Roommate

Avery Barron, the younger child of wealthy and permissive parents, finds himself in need of a place to stay and convinces Gray to let him move in temporarily. Gray puts up with Avery's lack of regard for rules and messy nature, but when Avery breaks one of Gray's ground rules, he faces the consequences. Gray punishes him and takes away his phone, leaving Avery feeling lost and disconnected.

Discovering a Passion

While Avery feels isolated without his phone, he stumbles upon a local Tap House and a piano. As he starts to play and reconnect with his love for music, he discovers a new sense of purpose and belonging. The more Avery plays, the more the community around him blossoms.

Ambitions and Goals

For the first time in his life, Avery has something to strive for. He sets his sights on becoming a talented pianist and building a future for himself. With his newfound passion, he begins to realize that there is more to life than social media and his parents' indulgence.

The Unattainable Love

However, there is one thing that Avery desires above all else - Gray's love and respect. Gray, on the other hand, struggles with his own demons and hesitates to fully commit to a relationship. As Avery's talent and ambition grow, he hopes that Gray will see him for who he truly is and develop a deeper connection.
