The town of Heartsville means something different to everyone who lives there. For Aaron Forester, it’s a gay-friendly buffer between himself and the rest of the world. After being outed in high school and bullied to the point of violence, his family uprooted their lives and relocated to the small hamlet. He’s moved on from all that and now owns a popular café in the bustling shopping district. But after twenty years of happy living, Aaron’s past creeps up on him in the most unexpected way.
Brad Collins only has one regret and he’s carried it with him since he was a teenager. When he moves to Heartsville and gets set up on a blind date with the most adorable, engaging man he’s met in a long time, he couldn’t be happier. But Brad didn’t expect the guy to be the person he outed in high school—who he’s now falling in love with.
Aaron and Brad hit it off instantly—in and out of the bedroom. But after a long overdue apology and a small serving of resentment, is their fledgling relationship worth another shot?
This was a very cute second chance love story. Heartsville is shaping up to be a fun “gayborhood” and I am looking forward to more stories set in the town.
Aaron and Brad’s romance was full of sweetness and just enough teasing to be flirty and fun. I connected with both men and loved watching them come together. There was only a small bit of angst that was resolved quickly and just as sweetly as one would expect from the way the author set everything up. This story was so cute it left me feeling giddy and happy. I would recommend this to anyone looking for something light and fluffy with a quick yet satisfying happy outcome.
And can I just say Brad’s niece was all kinds of 8 going on 30 perfectness!
