The last few months have been tough on Grant Parnell. He discovered his boyfriend was having an affair and it’s taken its toll, both emotionally and financially. With his business facing ruin, Grant could lose everything.
Dave Monroe is excited to start a new phase of his life. He’s following his dream and pursuing an exciting career opportunity. When Grant visits his friends in the country and finds out Dave might be moving to Melbourne, he offers him a place to stay. For Dave, life’s looking good.
Dave had only met Grant a couple of times before moving in with him, but the simmering sexual attraction is undeniable. As he settles into Grant’s home, deeper feelings develop. It’s hard not to fall for Grant’s gorgeous exterior, but it’s the strong man underneath who captures Dave’s heart.
Grant always craved success. His business and his home are testament to just how far he’s come, proving his family wrong and making something of himself—or he had. Now everything is falling apart. As Grant’s world spirals out of control, Dave is the one sure thing in his life.
But if they are to have any chance at happiness, Dave will need to teach Grant what’s really important.
4 out of 5 (very good)
Grant is having a hard time with life. His business partner and his boyfriend cheated on him, his business is bearing the brunt of that, and Grant feels like he is floundering under the stress of it all. Enter Dave from Armidale. Laid back, priorities set straight, and the perfect foil for Grant.
Grant comes across as cold and materialistic in places, but that does just make the scenes with Dave seem even more heart-warming! Grant has his past which is about to bite him in the behind, but he doesn't have to face it alone anymore.
I did feel like this book was more about Grant and his weaknesses, rather than an equal partnership with Dave, but I still can't imagine it any other way. This way certainly shows how Dave and Grant balance each other out.
The one thing I will say is that the ending seemed a bit rushed with this book. With the first two, you knew the ending was coming and the epilogue left you with a feeling of satisfaction. With this one, it just seemed to... stop!
Even with that though, I still thoroughly enjoyed this book and would have no hesitation in recommending it.
