You can never escape from yourself.
Zac McKenzie is an ex-professional footballer with a secret he gave up his career to protect. Several years ago, he fled to his home in the North East of Scotland to avoid being outed as gay. Now, he owns a successful hotel and restaurant, but is it time to finally come out into the open?
Seth Pritchard feels he is damaged goods. He comes to Scotland to escape memories of the accident that left him injured, his bullying step-brothers and a life of lies.
What a perfect tale. Seth is such a broken man. From a young age, his step family has beat him down emotionally and physically. To the point he can’t and won’t do or look at certain things. He just can’t. Then the horrific accident happens and now it’s time to heal.
Zac, an ex-footie, is also a broken man, hiding who he really is from most everyone in his life. Both have ran away to Scotland, one for months of healing and one started a fresh life.
Together and with outside help maybe they can heal each other.
I love these two, and that cat.
Zac is so patient, Seth, so broken, but it’s not a sad cry ever page book, it’s all about healing, finding joy, love, laughter. Everyone, has such a perfect role to play, the brother, the best-friend, the cook, even the ex-BF.
The ending was more beautiful and when the step family got the ‘just deserts’ at the end!
And we got our HEA, swoon!
