Redemption, Maine. Never had the name of a town been more apt or mocked a person more.
Aidan Morgan made many mistakes in his young life, but moving to Redemption gave him a chance to wash away his poor choices and repair his relationship with his siblings.
Ethan Ashworth had the blond good looks of a hometown football star, but the picture didn’t match the heart and mind of the young man living inside.
The new kid in town with a history of getting into trouble and an unlikely geek don’t often make a match, but a unique friendship forms. With one searing kiss on graduation day, promises of a future are made. One day later Aidan is gone, and Ethan’s heart is left broken.
Redemption, Maine. Never had the name of a town been more apt or mocked a person more … twice.
Thirteen years ago Aidan disappeared in the dead of night, but he is home now. Aidan has come home to take the job of chief of the fire department and to reconnect with his brother and sister. He wants Ethan back too. Unable to forget their kiss, Aidan wants to explain why he went away, and he wants a second chance to win Ethan’s heart.
Too bad for Aidan, Ethan isn’t so quick to forgive and forget. He dealt with a life-changing crisis after Aidan went away. His hurt and anger at how Aidan left him alone has resurfaced, bringing the controlled man back to life. Ethan will listen to Aidan’s reasons for leaving when he’s damn good and ready … and not a minute before.
Redemption, Maine. A place for second chances. Will the town–and Ethan Ashworth–give Aidan Morgan another shot to get it right?
I liked it. I connected to both Aidan and Ethan right away and stayed connected until the end. There was a time in the middle of the story that I hated the way Aidan came across but it never stopped me from wanting these two men to be together. I struggled a bit with some aspects of Aidan and Ethan’s journey but once they were together again, I easily forgot my issues and enjoyed the way this one turned out. I was left feeling warm and fuzzy.
I have to admit the writing was awkward sometimes and the flashbacks were abrupt and often not needed, but overall I would read this one again and I am eager for Devlin’s story next.
