Ten years ago, Kaine Keeley watched in horror as the love of his life turned his back on him, taking with him his one true chance at happiness. Now that he's no longer the penniless, shy boy he once was, Kaine is ready to fight and take back what was stolen from him.
A long time ago, Graeson Hardin thought that Kaine was worth fighting for. But after witnessing a crushing betrayal, he ran and never looked back. He wants nothing now but to live his life of solitude, protected from a love that almost destroyed him.
When Kaine shows up ten years later with a heartfelt apology and a believable explanation, Graeson must decide if he can make peace with his past to have the possibility of the future he always wanted.
Having traveled different roads in life, will these former lovers be able to battle the evil that may still be working to keep them apart and find a way to begin their long journey back home?
As you begin reading it is current day, and Kaine is about to meet Graeson for the first time in over 10 years. To say he is scared is rather an understatement, as he has been waiting a long time to see if Graeson still has any feelings for him, and if there is a chance they can get over what happened previously.
As the story unfolds, you are taken back to the time that Kaine believed that Graeson had walked out on him without a backward glance, and what had happened to make Graeson think that Kaine had betrayed him. Unbeknown to both, there was someone who had decided that they should not be together, and did whatever he could to ensure that Kaine and Graeson broke up.
When they meet again, it is obvious that the feelings that they had 10 years previously had not diminished at all, and were even stronger this time around. Kaine is over the moon that Graeson will talk to him, but what he doesn’t realise is that Graeson is having a big problem with overcoming what had happened previously. It is like he just cannot let it go, no matter what Kaine does to reassure him.
Eventually, Graeson sees Kaine for who he is, someone who is truly deeply in love with him, and the two seem to be able to put the past behind them and build on their relationship, that is until the someone from their past crashes into their lives again…
I look forward to reading more from this author, especially in this series. This book will definitely be on my read a;gain list, which I have done already!!
I have always been an avid reader. I distinctly remember begging my poor mother to paint my room lavender so that it would coordinate with my Harlequin romance novel collection that had taken over my room. My love of romance has evolved over the years to a passion for darker, more dangerous love that is hard fought. After stumbling upon my first M/M novel I was blown away and from then on I was hooked. My love of hot, sexy men aside, I love to read - and now write - stories with rough, sexy alpha males that struggle to find their HEA. My stories can be sparked by a name I hear, a delicious recipe I see, or even the lyrics of a song that move me. I will hear it or see it and a complete character pops into my brain demanding that I write their story.
