When Zachary is sent to London to audit a very high profile company, the last thing he expected was to meet the man of his dreams on the flight there.
Killian’s life has been hell for the last few years, but meeting Zach is the breath of fresh air he needed, even if he is half his age. He didn’t expect things between the two of them to escalate as fast as they do.
One night of passion isn’t enough, but there is danger in pursuing more, especially when fate throws them a curveball they never expected, and with Killian’s ex ready for the attack, they could lose everything, still, with the chemistry between them, staying apart isn’t an option.
With an attraction like neither has experienced, they are willing to risk it all, fighting the world around them that wants to keep them apart. Challenged in ways the two couldn’t imagine possible, they must figure out how to hold on to something they know they might never find again.
Forty year old Killian and twenty one year old Zach have found love when neither one was looking or expecting. Killian heads up this multi million pound company in London and Zach has been sent over to do an independent audit of its finical books. First they meet on the same transatlantic plane, can’t keep their hands off each other, head to a hotel to finish what they started. Misunderstanding sends them in opposite’s directions only to meet again. The chemistry between these two is hot and they make out like bunnies throughout the whole book. And once they figure out that have to work together to save Killian’s company and the ex is behind everything, it’s on. It’s a good storyline, and the extra plot twist at the end is a nice touch but a little less sex would go a long way. We get it; Killian and Zach have great chemistry and can’t keep their hands off each other. Even when there is an ocean between them, and parents just down the hall, more story less steam.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Although this is book two in the collection, it can be read as a standalone or the first in the series.
For most of his adult life, Jon dedicated his life to the church, finding solace in helping others, but there has always been something missing. Up until now, he’s been able to push that aside and move forward, letting everyone think he’s happy and doing what he loves.
Ash doesn’t want to continue with life. Left behind to live a cold and empty life after his partner died in a tragic accident, he doesn’t see any future for himself. He goes through the motions of living, but inside he’s ready to give up. All that’s left behind is the anger and hurt he has inside him.
Finding comfort in each other’s company, the two men struggle with emotions, guilt and fears about the future. Confiding only in each other, they grow closer, both denying the bond building between them, and a past that won’t let them move on.
This is book two and we do have characters that lap over from book one, I don’t think it’s necessary to read book one. And with that book coming in at over three hundred pages and this one coming in at the four hundred mark both are several day reads.
In this one we have Ash, the best friend of Zach. And Jon, Killian’s best friend, brother from childhood, Ash has been moving around, never staying anywhere for more than a few days for the last several months. Since his partner was killed in a driving accident. Jon knew at an early age he wanted to do something with the church, but an event sent him running for the priesthood in his teens but lately he has been questioning his life and his choices. As Zach and Killian go off on the honeymoon and Ash agrees to stay on to help Jon with a church project, we get the deeper details, feeling and workings of not only what happened to Ash but Jon as well. And as these two tip toe around each other the friendship becomes deeper, slowly, and even though both men are having carnal feelings about each other, they wait to act on them. It’s a great way to show us that in fact we can build a loving relationship. Friendship, and have someone understand what we’ve been through without all that sex. Nicely done, I did find it a little long winded in parts but over all a sweet, bonding healing story.
