Don’t waste a chance at happiness…
Leo is a lonely workaholic with no time for romance in his life. His job in London takes all his energy and commitment. When he goes to Cornwall to stay with his terminally ill uncle, Edwin, love is the last thing Leo expects to find.
Tris lives in a cottage on Edwin’s land. Gay, but still half in the closet, he and Leo bond over their affection for Edwin, and the pull of attraction between them proves too strong to ignore. In Tris’s arms, in the wilds of Cornwall, Leo finds a peace he’d forgotten existed.
On his return to London, Leo finds himself grieving for more than just the loss of his uncle. When some unexpected news gives Leo the chance to return to Cornwall, he’s afraid it will be too late to rekindle things with Tris. But having learned much from his stay with his uncle, Leo doesn’t want to look back and wish he’d done things differently.
Another wonderful tale from Jay.
This time we’ve Leo a gay man living in London, working as a web designer. Complete workaholic. As a child he would spend his summers with his uncle in Cornwall, so when his mum rang and said the uncle was dying. he heads down.
Tris, is a recently divorced man with a pre teen. Living in a cottage on his uncles land. Tris for years has been denying his true nature, and this is the main reason for the separation. Now he just wants to get his life back together.
Leo and Tris have this we will be each other secrets but we don’t want to be vibe. And once they find out that the uncle also lived a lie, that spurs Tris on to stop and tell the truth. But was it too late.
Although, the story was pretty predicable, the tone and devotions of not just the uncle but of Tris and Leo really sang out.
Narrator, did a really good job getting the voices, emotions and depth of this story.
