Sometimes curves in the road take you right where you belong.
Luther Almond’s life working the Bakken oil field is perfect—short-lived jobs, temporary housing, and easy hookups. That’s one reason he won’t move home when he inherits the lake house. When Erik Heat bends over to fix Luther’s pipes, his tattoos hint he might be up for more than working on the drain. The last thing Luther expects is to want more from this guy than one night.
Every time they’re together, Luther is more grounded and Erik more confident. When the lake house demands attention, Luther asks for Erik’s help. There he imagines a more permanent life, one where he stops running. But he wants Erik by his side. Can he find the courage—and the words—to ask?
My overall impression of this story was that it was short, sweet, and satisfying. I loved the way the story and the interactions between Erik and Luther changed as Luther grew and opened himself up to love. Things went from impersonal and blunt to shy and tender. I liked watching Luther struggle a bit. I liked watching what went on in his mind as he allowed himself to fall for Erik. This was short, so most of the relationship development happened behind the scenes, but there was more than enough growth and connection on the page for me to fully feel that this relationship had a chance to work out in the long run. I would love another look into these men’s lives as they adjust to their new living situation and as they grow as a couple. Pick this one up if you want something short, yet well written.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
