Tattoo artist Seth Wheeler thinks he’s struck gold when Darren Romero rents the apartment across the hall. The new guy is gorgeous, witty, and single, plus he’s just the right blend of bold and flirtatious. Perfect.
Except then Darren reveals that he moved to Tucker Springs to take a job as the youth pastor at the New Light Church. Seth is not only an atheist, but was thrown out by his ultra-religious family when he came out. He tends to avoid believers, not out of judgment but out of self-preservation.
But Darren doesn’t give up easily, and he steadily chips away at Seth’s defenses. Darren is everything Seth wants in a man . . . except for that one massive detail he just can’t overlook. Is Darren’s religion the real problem, or is it just a convenient smokescreen to keep him from facing deeper fears? It’s either see the light, or risk pushing Darren away forever.
And another Tucker Springs book hits it out of the park. I love these books. They are all about men, normal every day men who aren’t wealthy, most of them are just scraping by, and they are dealing with the stresses all of us do on a daily basis. If you’ve read some of the other books, you are probably familiar with Seth the tattoo artist. He’s one of our heroes and the teller of this tale. Seth has major issues with Christians, which given his past, makes sense. Of course, the universe would send him a curve ball when the best looking, hottest single gay man in existence moves in next door….and is a minister.
I loved Witt’s dealing of both sides of the coin. Seth’s dealing with the fact that ^This could never work and yet OMG I want him^ and Darren’s being turned away for being who he is – a Christian man. It’s a page turner. In fact, all the Tucker Springs books are. I can’t put them down once I pick them up.
Which means I’m on to the next book in the series.
5 stars people. If you haven’t picked up Tucker Springs. Do it. Believe me 😉
