Colin Baker owns a book store and he’s back in Cedarwood with his son. He’s looking for a new start after a bad breakup, but he never expected that start to include his old crush, Officer Jordan Hargrove. Jordan hasn’t come out, but if he can score with Colin, then he’s all in. He’s dreamed of hot nights with the quiet man.
After a speeding ticket and some hurt feelings, sparks fly between the bookstore owner and the police officer, but Cedarwood is a small town with small town values, and a gay couple isn’t what the town expects. Colin’s created a support group for single gay fathers and he feels he’s making some difference in Cedarwood. Some folks in Cedarwood are fine with these two men reconnecting, but some aren’t.
Will the naysayers be enough to drive Colin and Jordan apart, or will they make their way together in this small town.
I am a sucker for stories about men with children and I enjoyed reading this one. The author did a great job painting a picture of life in this town and introduced some wonderful characters who were easy to connect with. I am invested in these men and look forward to their stories. I also look forward to seeing the town evolve as this series progresses.
My biggest issue with this story was that it felt very rush and almost too perfect. As if much of the relationship development was cut in favor of a lower word count. However, I still liked this low angst story of coming out and of second chances, but it had the potential to be so much more.
