BLURB: Kieran Addison, in his teens, falls in love with his brother Brad’s boyfriend, and he runs away to another country to bury himself in a career so he can forget. When his brother is killed in a car accident, Kieran comes back briefly for the funeral, but then leaves almost immediately, his emotions too raw to face Jordan Salter.
It’s only when his father becomes ill, and his sister begs him to come home, that Kieran returns for good. He finds the family business almost bankrupt and Jordan, the man he loves, broken—a shell of the man he used to be, beaten down by despair over the business and guilt over Brad’s death, a death he blames himself for.
The journey Kieran and Jordan take—building a friendship and repairing the business, while exploring how they feel about each other—is a journey filled with decisions and revealed secrets. Can Kieran and Jordan finally see what could be between them after all these years?
A fantastic story about dealing with pain and ‘growing up’; about settling for nothing less than the best and for everything.
When Kieran finally decides to come back home after a desperate phone call from his sister, he’s confronted with his sick father, the legacy left behind by his brother Brad, the family company being in serious trouble and his own still-strong feelings for his brothers partner, Jordan. It’s a lot to deal with.
Struggling with his own feelings for Kieran, Jordan doubts his plans for life should he leave his ‘family’ as the Addisons are the only family he ever knew.
The decision to stay is made easier when he is offered the chance to become officially part of the company. And when Kieran opens up and makes it clear he wants Jordan and is there to stay, things finally starting to look up for both of them.
Miss Scott paints a perfect picture of how they both have to deal with their memories and how they have to learn to open up about Brad and both their pasts.
As always the sexual tension is noticeable and Miss Scott doesn’t fail in taking their lovemaking to high levels. She sure knows how to deliver.
I have to say I liked the character of Evan who shows up in the story as Kieran’s best friend but I regret seeing the relationship not being made better use of at the end of the book.
This story reads easily and you find yourself involved pretty fast and you become enthralled with the lives of the characters running the book.
A good, solid story with a nice plot and a connection with one or more of the characters. What more could you want as a reader?
