We meet Lincoln, who is married with children, but the marriage is not what it should be - they are like best friends, not husband and wife. Every so often, Lincoln will think back to the one person he did truly love, but never got the chance to be with.... Rush.
Rush is also in a relationship, but having been stood up on their anniversary date, he is angry, but his partner pulls out all the stops to make it up to him, including asking him to marry him. Rush is over the moon, it looks like he is going to get what he always wanted - or will he??
Lincoln is now newly divorced, and went back to see his mother, taking a trip down memory lane while he was there, and while visiting old special places, and he sees someone who he has not seen for years - Rush.
Now Rush has his own photography business, and is working when Lincoln sees him, but he is surprised and ecstatic when he sees Lincoln, and runs to hug him!!
The two agree to meet and sit and talk, and both find out what the other has been doing since they went their seperate ways years earlier, although this wasn't really by choice, it was more or less peer pressure that did this.
Now the two men and older and wiser, so perhaps this time they can try and make things work, but there are quite a few obstacles to be overcome first, and the biggest one being that Lincoln has been in the closet for so long. Will they manage to overcome all this have the second chance that they both deserve?
It has been a little while since I have read a second chance story, and this one was absolutely brilliant. As you read you really do get the feels for both Lincoln and Rush, and their emotions are clear on each page. This is one book that I will be reading again, and would recommend highly, especially if you love second chance romance too.
