Hope Cove: Book Three

Haydn Prescott stood by and watched his friends fall in love, something he hopes never happens to him. It’s too much drama, thankyouverymuch. He just wants a hot guy to roll around with every once in a while. No muss, no fuss. Out for a night of dancing, he meets Trevor Ryan and the two are explosive together. The next morning, Haydn wakes up alone.

Trevor is gone and Haydn thinks he’s seen the last of him… until months later when Trevor walks into Haydn’s bakery in Hope Cove. Entanglements and complications ooze from Trevor, but Haydn can’t ignore him—Trevor won’t let him. Haydn always believed he wanted to be free and single forever, but now he’s torn: does he want to be with Trevor or should he play it safe and stick to what’s worked?

My View – Story:

For months Haydn has been watching his friends fall in love and settle down. He is positive THAT is not for him. Too much drama for a party boy who likes to go out and choose his one night stands from the selection on offer.

When he has an amazing and incredibly hot one night stand he can’t get the guy out of his mind but when the very same guy comes into the bakery he nearly swallows his tongue. Standing there with a woman and a small child who calls him daddy is too much of a shock for Haydn and he immediately goes on the defensive.

With misunderstandings out of the way Haydn and the hottie who is Trevor have a couple more hot nights together and start spending time getting to know each other. Trevor is very adept at reading Haydn and quickly realises how skittish he is when it comes to relationships or any perceived commitment. Instead of going all out to get what he wants from Haydn he takes it very slowly and integrates him into his and his daughter’s life without him even noticing.

This is a slow burn love story without too much angst. Haydn reflects on relationships from his childhood and is more than a little bit scared to open himself up. He fears heartbreak and all the complications from when something goes wrong, not really opening himself up to the idea that sometimes things can go right. Trevor is very patient with him and coaxes him into the idea that not all love is bad.

When Haydn is given a sharp jolt and he thinks he has lost Trevor he realises he may not be as immune to falling in love as he first thought!

My View – Narration:

What can I say? As with the previous two books in this series John Orr did a perfect job!
