BLURB: Jason Sinclair isn’t very good at relationships, which is no surprise given a childhood with an eccentric father and an unloving, emotionally damaged mother. After leaving home at seventeen, Jason has spent the past four years doing everything he could to stay away. That changes when he learns his mother is dying of cancer, and he grudgingly returns to Larame Bay to say good-bye.
Word on the street is that Jason will sell his family’s property and run back to LA the minute his mother dies, but when Jason meets the new groundskeeper, the sexy and confident Adam Trent, all that changes. As Jason begins to fall for Adam, he surprises everyone, including himself, by sticking around after all.
However, it doesn’t take long to realize someone out there desperately wants Jason gone from Larame Bay and will make sure that happens—one way or another.
Wow… what an amazing story. This is my second book by this author and I cannot be happier to have found her. This story is a lot more than you would expect reading the blurb. It certainly is a sweet love story, with some mystery, but for me the focal point of the book is family.
The writing is flawless with great characters, real emotions, some seriously hot chemistry between the MCs, believable inner struggles and fantastic character development. Adam and Jason are really hot together, their relationship slowly building with funny banter, great conversations and their unique acceptance of each other. I prefer no or very low angst between the MCs, so this book has the perfect amount for me given the mysteries providing all the excitement.
My favorite layer of the book is the way it beautifully describes the complexity of family relationships. It speaks to me on so many levels, being a parent and a child at the same time. The way we get to see the changes in the relationship between Jason and his mother is both heartwarming and heartbreaking. Recognizing our parents’ unacceptable qualities in ourselves is one of the most shocking experiences in our lives. Accepting said quality and our parents with that is one of the greatest revelations ever. Jason has to grow up and see his past and his mother from a totally new angle. Loved the way it’s all woven in the story!!!
Thank you, S. C. Wynne for another amazing read! Highly recommended!
