The story The Caretaker (The Sin Bin Book 2) by Dahlia Donovan is a wonderful story of two people who come from different backgrounds and find they have a connection. This is the story of Freddie Whittle and Taine Afoa. When they meet there is an attraction between them. As they learn more about each other this attraction only grows stronger. Taine soon finds himself not able to think of anything else but Freddie. When times get tough and people get in the way will their feelings for each other bring them closer together or will their relationship fall apart?
This is the second book in the Sin Bin series and the second book I have read by the author. It only reinforces that she is an amazing author who creates beautiful stories and wonderful characters. I really like Freddie. He is a person with a big heart and is always there for the needs of his patients. He works with patients with cancer which means that he deals with sadness all the time and tries to make them feel special. Freddie is someone who takes the death of a patient very hard. When he first meets Taine he is attracted to him and does think of him, however, his job seems to be overwhelming him. When a situation arises that causes Freddie to leave on vacation he finds that Taine is coming along with him. How far will their relationship develop? Freddie has people in his life that say they are looking out for him, Freddie thinks they are smothering him. Will they put an end to any relationship between these two?
Taine is a retired international rugby star. He first sees Freddie when he is visiting the cancer ward of the hospital that Freddie works for. When they finally meet face to face Taine is interested. However, the age difference between himself and Freddie at first causes him to hold back. Then he is convinced that he needs to go to the Netherlands with Freddie. After they return a situation comes up that causes Taine to shut down. He knows that he should contact Freddie, however, can’t seem to make himself make that call. What will happen to this couple? Will Taine finally act on his deep feelings for Freddie and not let anything or anyone get in the way of their happiness?
This story chronicles two people falling for each other and the obstacles they face. It also shows the ugly side of hate and deals with people who have no tolerance for those who are different from themselves. What Freddie has to endure by these ugly people left me angry and frustrated. I also felt happiness for both Freddie and Taine and rooted for their getting their happy ending. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series. This story does include adult situations which would make it a book for those 18 years of age or older.
Nothing overly angsty here, Taine and Freddie both feel attracted to each other and pursue those feelings after a little nudge from helpful friends. Taine is older and wiser and I loved his attitude toward life. Freddie is a caretaker to the core of his soul and I loved how much he cared for his patients as well as his meddling family. I have been anxiously waiting for this book for about three months - since reading the last book. Five green, green, green stars. Will Scottie's story be next?!
A couple of recommendations for readers. This can be read as a stand-alone, but you'll really get more enjoyment from the character interactions if you read The Wanderer first. And though it is not part of the Sin Bin series, After the Scrum has some of the same characters and should probably be read even before The Wanderer. (But don't let my 'order of reading' stop you from getting this book.) My last recommendation is regarding the Welsh terms spoken by Freddie and his family. There is a glossary of terms in the back of the book. Check that out first. I didn't realize it was there and spent a lot of time googling terms because they weren't completely obvious.
I've flown through each Sin Bin book... I'd suggest starting at the beginning, though you don't have to. However, I always find it so much more enjoyable understanding the nuiances. This book in particular has a bit of dominance, but not so overdone it is in the least bit upsetting... Kind of the opposite actually! ;) The best part of her books... the humor! I adore the witty humor and the banter the characters have. With each book, I think to myself...if I could only have a glass of wine with the author, I'd probably have the time of my life.
Well written. Lovely stories. If you haven't read an M/M, I'd suggest starting at the beginning with After the Scrum... and get Royal Marine... It's soooooo good!
Taine is finished with his rugby career and he has no idea what is next. The young man outside of a patient's room in the hospital, struggling to come to grips with his emotions, isn't what he had in mind.
Nurse Freddie may be young and physically small but he is mighty. When a combination of bigot neighbors, the highly stressful job caring for cancer patients and his helicopter fathers bring Freddie to the boiling or is it the melting point, could the larger than life Taine be the solution?
I was slow to appreciate the Wanderer but now, I'm in love with these men and can't wait for much more! #ItsyBitsyBookBlog Story 4.5* Emotion 4* Sizzle 4.5*
