Book Description

As his world collapses, love opens his heart.

Robbie Grayson has always felt like a bit of an outsider in the Chester family, though he’s related by blood. An orphan taken in at a young age, he is further set apart by a limp inflicted by a childhood illness.

Nevertheless, he’s content enough with his quiet country life—until a mercurial wastrel named Charles Worthington explodes into it. And Robbie is assigned to play nursemaid to an invalid with an attitude.

Injured in a carriage accident, Charles arrives at the Chester estate drunk as a lord and with empty pockets. Despair consumes him as his broken body slowly heals, but the kindness of quiet, thoughtful Robbie saves him from drowning in self-pity.

Over chess matches and conversation, these polar opposites challenge each other to break out of old patterns, until desire burns through the thin veneer of pure friendship. Yet their passion could destroy the family bonds they value so highly. Especially when someone catches wind of their relationship—and threatens blackmail.

Warning: This book contains hot man-on-man lovin’ between not-quite kissin’ cousins.

4.0 out of 5 stars Book Review by Josie Goodreads September 12, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
4.25 of 5 Stars

For original review see The Prism Book Alliance Blog online

Orphan Robbie Grayson has built a home for himself within his uncle’s family. He spends his days helping to run the estate and most of the time he is able to convince himself that he belongs. When his uncle announces that his cousin Samuel will be returning from his European Tour Robbie realizes that his own place in the family is a mere illusion, he’s not needed, not anymore, soon he will have to make his own way in the world, something that fills him with fear and foreboding. Before he does so though he is asked to help his distant cousin Charles settle in as the Chester family welcomes yet another lost sheep into the fold.

Invalid Charles Worthington arrives at the Chester estate a broken man, in spirit as well as body. Now destitute and with two broken legs Charles wallows in despair wondering if he will ever be well enough again to work and to provide for himself. Money never used to be a worry but then he was a wastrel, living each day with no care in the world, but now penniless and a cripple Charles is scared and helpless with no idea how to turn his life around.

Fierce need and attraction runs between Robbie and Charles from the first day they meet and the more time they spend with each other the hotter it runs, but they have to be careful, neither man wants anyone else to find out. Can the friendship between the two men heal them both, fortifying them to face a new and uncertain future?

When Samuel returns to the estate Charles sees in him a reflection of the man he used to be for Samuel wears the air of entitlement and authority without the consideration and compas-sion for others.

4.0 out of 5 stars Here’s my guess October 15, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Suffice it to say that I enjoyed this book. I have nothing to add to other reviewers’ excellent comments, but would like to join them in expressing disappointment that Charles’ mysterious illness was never diagnosed. If this “armchair doctor” were to wager, I’d put my money on multiple sclerosis. I was struck with how all his symptoms perfectly match a case of early-stage MS that I am personally familiar with. But I would like to learn from a sequel that I am sorely mistaken. Charles is way too loveable for such a cruel fate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Charming romance December 2, 2014
By M.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Lovely romance. Robbie comes out of his shell, falling for Charles, and Charles becomes a better person, wanting to help sweet Robbie. I like the setting in the family mansion, and the secondary characters. I agree it's a bit of a pity we never discover what exactly ails Charles, but I like the ending. I feel they can really be happy together like this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy, lovely historical romance. September 19, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
*3.5 stars*

My new *thing* is historical romance. I'm actively seeking them out, and I find that I've been loving this genre more and more. While I've read a number of Bonnie Dee's books before, this was my first experience with the writing pair of Dee/Devon, and I think these two authors did a very nice job meshing their styles. Overall, this book was very successful, though not exceptional for me.

"Mending Him" is a lovely romance about two men with physical ailments. Robbie has had a limp and some physical deformity since childhood, and Charles has been fighting a mysterious ailment that, combined with a gambling/spending habit, has robbed him of all his money. Though this story could have been a big downer, it wasn't. It was charming and uplifting, these two guys finding love together.

My only issue with the story is that I found the chemistry a bit lacking between the two MCs. I felt like they were thrown together due to circumstances, and there really wasn't that spark between them. It seemed more like a relationship of convenience to me, and I wasn't all that taken by them as a pair. The story was also a little slow for my tastes, and I had no problem putting it down and going about my day.

However, that being, said, this story was a nice one. I enjoyed it overall and would recommend it to any M/M historical lover.
