Blurb: “I won’t get hurt again.”
“He probably has women falling at his feet.”
Attorney Alexander Wilson lies to himself. He’s not in the closet. He’s happy alone. He could come out to his work colleagues any time. Until then it’s one nerd and his Corgi, his string of failed relationships, and his collection of Space Shuttle toys. So when he’s hired by a tattooed, musclebound mechanic, it’s just as well that Conflict of Interest prevents him getting involved.
“A guy like him wouldn’t spend time with a guy like me.”
Mechanic Titus Edwards walked away from a promising Army career. As a former EOD expert he’s faced tougher environments than Flushing, Queens, but never a tougher job: raising his eight year old niece. When her biological father crawls out of the woodwork, Titus needs an attorney if he’s to protect her. But he’s not expecting to find himself drawn to Alex. After all, Alex is a guy. And Titus isn’t gay.
“We’re wasting time on a fairytale.”
Both men are haunted by pasts they would rather forget. But if they are to forge a future together they’re going to need to overcome more than their individual hurts. Can they learn to trust themselves and each other before it’s too late?
Review: I am very critical when reading and reviewing books. I can’t tell you how many books I start reading only to move on to another. For a book to receive 4 or 5 stars, it has to be really good. It has to be inviting, keep my attention, and have “Real” characters and an amazing, well developed plot.
What can I say? Riley wrote a great book that not only kept my attention from page one to the end, it felt real! That alone is one reason to read this book. Alex and Ty, both had their quirks, but those quirks were as normal as those you or I have. Alex and his dog. Ty, the strong ex special ops guy, who was unhappy with the world and himself for oh so many reasons. These were two men who had stories, backgrounds, and fears.
When Alex and Ty found their lives intertwined due to a legal issue, they found something special in each other. The saying “Opposites Attract” certainly fit here. I found myself rooting for them to take the next step and realize that their love was special.
