Summary

Seth

Portland was supposed to be my fresh start, my chance to live for myself. Unfortunately, it’s not working out that way. I stay in the apartment Mom chose and major in finance like she wants. I let bad memories keep me from hooking up. I wouldn’t know the first thing about finding a guy who gets me, who’s okay with my need to be held and feel safe. 

When I befriend a worker at the assisted living facility where I volunteer, I don’t expect to get invited to dinner, only to realize her son is Jake, a guy I met through friends last fall. Jake’s not only hot, he’s also sweet, a caretaker, and attracted to me too. Since he’s never been with a guy, and I’m a virgin, we’re setting the pace together, learning what we like, one bone-melting touch at a time. 

Jake

My childhood was rocky, with an abusive father and a mother I needed to protect. The first thing I did after high school graduation was get us out of there so we could finally breathe. And start living. For me that means managing the garage I own with my best friend and enjoying the modest house I call my own. 

Then Seth enters my life. Our connection is palpable. He’s shy, innocent, and sets my blood on fire. He makes it impossible to ignore my attraction to men. The trust he puts in me is more potent than any desire. I get as much from talking to or holding him as when we let our inhibitions go. 

Seth and I fulfill each other’s needs - in and out of the bedroom. But our struggles aren’t easy to shake. With my urge to protect and Seth’s desire to fly, we’ll have to strike the right balance, but when we do, the results will be pretty sweet.

Intense & sweet love story to warm the heart

This is another great addition to the series. The tentative romance grows slow and sure revealing the 'adorable' nature of both characters. The hurt/comfort aspect is woven in seamlessly, and although it's a bit of a tear-jerker, it's not high-angst.

I'll definitely be sticking with the series.

Sweet story

This was such a sweet and fluffy story but it also had depth. Seth is gentle and awkward soul who is struggling to stand up to his mum. It is about him finding and accepting himself. He meets the overprotective and straight Jake and find a connection but they both need to work through their issues to come out stronger. I really enjoyed this story 💜

Seth and Jake

I did love this book. I loved how much Seth came into his own and the confidence he ended up with. Michael Dean again did an amazing job bringing these characters to life.
