Virge is an author and an L.A. Police Officer who takes a leave of absence when he gains custody of his nephew, Donovan or “D”, after witnessing his mother’s death. D is traumatized and stops speaking for the most part. He uses basic sign language to communicate. Hoping to help D, Virge takes him to Montana for therapy where they both meet Jared. Jared and his brothers run a horse ranch and the little boy instantly likes Jared. It doesn’t take long for Virge and D to be invited to stay in one of the guest houses at the ranch.
I liked this book. I liked Virge and Jared. Jared’s family is hysterical and their dynamic is the stuff one only reads about in books. D is a sweet kid who is too young to really understand why his mom was taken away from him, but thankfully has always had a very close relationship with his uncle Virge which helps considerably. The romance in the book is good and Virge and Jared get their HEA.
Now for the reasons I only gave the book 3.5 stars. There are way too many plots going on for such a short story. There were so many loose ends at the end of the book that I was left wondering if maybe I didn’t receive the full ARC. I honestly had a problem with D calling every man he likes “Daddy”. That just seemed really weird to me. Also, how did D learn sign language well enough to be able to communicate? How did Virge learn sign language well enough to communicate with D? And why did Virge have to go all the way to Montana for therapy for D? Are there really no qualified therapists in Los Angeles?
Interracial M/M romance, western elements, daddy-figure element. Caucasian male appears to be about 10 years younger. The cover has many things competing for attention and the colors are rather riotous and busy. Although it may catch the eye, the overwhelming information it tries to present at a glance could also work as a deterrent. The synopsis, however, really sounds good and it was that which attracted me to the story and convinced me to give the book, and author, a try.

Almost immediately, I find a soft spot in a commonality between D and my oldest child, who also had a blue teddy bear named Boo Bear. Her Boo Bear is now in a keepsake box and - at 24 yrs old - she still considers it a cherished belonging.
Virge is a LAPD homicide officer as well as an author writing under a pen name. When his sister is killed while out with her son, he is given custody of the boy. Traumatized by witnessing his mother dying, Virge takes a leave of absence to obtain the help of a renown child psychologist in Montana. Jared is the middle of five brothers. He helps in the operation of their working ranch. At a chance meeting at the library, young "D" is drawn to the cowboy in a powerful way. The attraction between the men is no less magnetic.
Toss in a nasty ex, some paparazzi and loving family members and you have a wonderful cast of characters that make a truly enjoyable story.
Author's writing style is incredibly smooth. This story flowed wonderfully. There was just enough conflict to give it some deeper dynamics and the epilogue provided a solid, satisfying conclusion.
I would definitely read more from this author and recommend it to anyone who likes M/M with kids. Super sweet, lovable D will win your heart as much as the lead men will.
