Liam Davis is a man without a past. That’s what he wants everyone to believe, anyway. Hell-bent on erasing any memories of his previous life, he knows that starting over is all he can do. Hiding who he is, where he’s from, why he’s running, and especially who he’s left behind, Liam has run away from everything he’s ever known. His plan works perfectly until one day when Parker Ryan threatens to expose his carefully concealed world.
Parker Ryan is a man without a future. Sure, he’s a partner in one of New York’s most prestigious law firms, but he’ll never be more than a failure in the eyes of his boss, his father. Rather than break away from his father’s standards, he finds himself mindlessly pursuing them, in turn sacrificing anything that would actually make him happy.
When Liam’s and Parker’s lives collide, the ugly truth about who they really are, and who they hope to become reveals itself when they least expect it. As both of their lives become wrecked beyond all belief, they’ll learn how to rely on each other in their journey to become Repaired.
Melissa Collins is not a new author. She isn’t even new to Prism Book Alliance. She, however, is new to me.
I found Repaired on the new release list on Goodreads, and decided to give it a try. I am usually a fan on contemporary opposites-attract stories. That is exactly what Repaired offers us. A bit of a Cinderfella story with a side of two broken men looking for love.
Liam and Parker both have issues they need to overcome. Liam’s are his past, and Parker’s are his present. I can’t say that either of their issues were a huge surprise. There were a number of situations in this story that were either predictable or a little too convenient. However, if you can get past those drawbacks, Repaired really is a sweet story.
There is definite chemistry between Liam and Parker, but more importantly there is a connection between them. They both have something the other needs, even if they don’t know they need it. They both bring something solid to the relationship. They are equals, despite their disparate background and socioeconomic statuses.
I will give Ms. Collins another shot. I already have a couple of her other M/M titles in my TBR.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
I have a number of paperbacks, most of which are signed, to giveaway. Over the between now (11 Mar 2017) and 31 Mar 2017, every comment on the blog (this post and all other new posts), will be entered to win 1 of these paperbacks. There are also some misc swag items, so there will be a few packs of these to give away as well.
Thank you so much for your support over the last 4 years. Prism will be closing its doors on 1 April 2017. All content will remain available, but no new content will appear after 31 Mar 2017. As such all request forms have been turned off. Again Thank you,
