An unexpected inheritance lands Jeremy a large house and plenty of money to take a sabbatical from his job teaching poetry at a small college. He intends to sell the house and take off on a new path to discover what he wants out of life. Then he meets Connor. The attraction he feels to a man so different from himself is no less shocking than his change in financial circumstances, but Connor is in the closet and Jeremy wants a life lived out in the sun.
Connor is a former Force Recon Marine who runs a housecleaning business. When he’s hired to get Jeremy’s house market-ready, he’s startled by how attracted he is to his client despite their many differences. But his past, especially his final mission, weighs heavily on him. He’s not certain he can be the man Jeremy needs, but no man has ever made him want to take a risk like Jeremy does.
I just loved this story. I have to admit I’ve only read this authors shifter books. And while I enjoyed them. This one, just touched all the right buttons.
You have the college professor, the scared closeted Marine and the two best friends, doing everything they can to help with the HEA.
Conner and Jeremy together is a wonderful combination. Both have baggage from the past, both have friends to help processes that baggage and both are willing to find love. Jeremy, even though he’s aggressor because he’s out. Conner is willing to learn with some help from Jeremy.
The connection that Jeremy and David is brilliant, and the torment that Conner is going through with Mario is heartbreaking. Can’t wait to see if Mario gets a story.
