Colin Baker owns a book store and he’s back in Cedarwood with his son. He’s looking for a new start after a bad breakup, but he never expected that start to include his old crush, Officer Jordan Hargrove. Jordan hasn’t come out, but if he can score with Colin, then he’s all in. He’s dreamed of hot nights with the quiet man.
After a speeding ticket and some hurt feelings, sparks fly between the bookstore owner and the police officer, but Cedarwood is a small town with small town values, and a gay couple isn’t what the town expects. Colin’s created a support group for single gay fathers and he feels he’s making some difference in Cedarwood. Some folks in Cedarwood are fine with these two men reconnecting, but some aren’t.
The potential was so great for this book, but I felt the whole think was rushed just a little too much. Colin and Jordan are good together and the brother makes a well rounded tale, but all the trails and issues just needed more depth. The connection Colin and Jordan developed needed to slow down a little. The big coming out for Jordan was very anti-climatic. I liked how they involved the kid, knowing that he had already lost one dad. And I liked how we got the back story on all the charaters, but I never really bought how one woman could cause that much hatred. And why? Maybe that’s just me being naive.
