Want true, heart-throbbing romance? Put down the Cheetos, and stop being a jackass.
The question is, can I do it?
I’ve been an epic dick to my friends, my uncle. Him.
Travis Hunter. Photographer, econ-student, paraplegic. Can I redeem myself? Apologize? Make a fresh start?
Hunter seems to think so. Even roped me into saving his favorite gazebo from the bulldozers.
The confidence of this man amazes me. He’s no bullshit where I’m all bullshit. I throw up walls where he knocks them down.
He’s beautiful, too. Strong arms inked with hummingbirds, a wide teasing mouth, and blue eyes that read me like an open book.
He looks at me, and I look away.
These shivery feelings I have for Hunter? They can’t happen. I don’t deserve him.
Where did I put those Cheetos?

What author Anyta Sunday says about this release:
I want readers to enjoy a good, steamy romance with a sex-positive, strong MC (Hunter) who helps the other MC (Marc) come to terms with his past, and accept himself as worthy of love.
Hunter poured a red plastic cup of beer and handed it to me. “So you lured me here for a sleuthing mission?”
“You brought your computer, right? You can do the cross-referencing.”
“Is that right?”
“You’re allowed to look at me.”
My face heated, and I hid in a slow sip of cool beer. “I’ve looked at you.” Quick glimpses. “We need to focus on finding Daisy. I’ll keep my eyes on the prize.”
“I don’t promise to do the same.”
What? I whisked toward him, gaze snagging with Hunter’s.
He smiled. “Ah, better. I rather like those pretty hazel eyes on me.”
“They’re brown. Not hazel. Definitely not pretty.”
“You’ll need to stare at me a while to verify that.”
My skin tightened. Everywhere.
5 of 5 Stars
This story is a continuation of book one so I don’t think it could be read as a standalone (and book one was amazing, so you don’t want to miss it). This book is about healing, redemption, mending of relationships – new and old, and building new relationships.
The opening scene made me angry and I hope we never see or hear from Jack again. Marc’s life has been filled with nothing but pain which caused him to lash out at people and follow the wrong person. He lacks self-esteem and a sense of self-worth. He’s filled with guilt and self-loathing; some warranted some not. BUT when he doesn’t say something insensitive, he is perfect for Hunter. He sees Hunter, not the chair. And Hunter is amazing. Hunter is patient and sees behind Marc’s mask. Their relationship builds from friendship which makes it stronger.
I love the side story about the gazebo and the one about Marc’s uncle.
Liam and Quinn play fairly big roles in this one. That coupled with how much Marc and Hunter were in book one are the reasons I don’t think this could be a standalone. I think I would have been lost without the history.
Tyler is a new character who will be in book three and I’m not going to lie…I’m a little nervous about who his love interest will be because if it’s who I’m thinking I will go into that one begrudgingly.
This is another definite must-read in this series.

About the Author
A bit about me: I’m a big, BIG fan of slow-burn romances. I love to read and write stories with characters who slowly fall in love. Some of my favorite tropes to read and write are: Enemies to Lovers, Friends to Lovers, Clueless Guys, Bisexual, Pansexual, Demisexual, Oblivious MCs, Everyone (Else) Can See It, Slow Burn, Love Has No Boundaries. I write a variety of stories, Contemporary MM Romances with a good dollop of angst, Contemporary lighthearted MM Romances, and even a splash of fantasy. My books have been translated into German, Italian, French, and Thai.
