Andrew, a local real estate agent member of a town founding family , is at a party for his brother's birthday when he is drawn to the extremely attractive business man sitting at the bar. The encouragement of his parents is a bit over the top so he waited until they left to return to see if the stranger was still there and if the attraction was indeed mutual.
Joel is visiting Lavender Shores on business, his big attempt to prove his value to his father, that he is capable of running the family coffee empire. Not surprisingly, his father has assigned an almost impossible mission.
The immediate attraction between Andrew and Joel, as painted by the author, was so stunning that the reader absorbs Andrew's emotion as he feels Joel's relief, "as though he'd been waiting for his return". Joel, confident businessman that he is, appears to have temporarily lost his air of self-assurance.
The almost immediate encounter between Andrew and Joel, as well as those that follow, is reverent, passionate yet erotic as the men fit perfectly. The reader is so captured by the story that it becomes necessary to stop reading to take a deep breath, in a 'take a breath break'.
It is possible and almost a guarantee that the reader will lose touch with the fact that this is a story and it isn't really happening to you!
The relationship, as this seems more like a relationship and less like a hookup, faces several rather monumental barriers. The men agree that the feelings are more than they know how to absorb.
Trouble lies ahead as Joel is less than honest with Andrew about his reason for being in Lavender Shore and Joel has no intention to live or be anywhere else. This is truly a beautiful love story with secrets, emotion and passion throughout!
I was pretty aggravated with Joel so many times in the story, as he tried very hard to find a way to keep his coffee and drink it too. Poor Andrew, so afraid to believe his dreams might come true but with no clue of what he was up against. I felt so much with both these characters. It was beautiful and sexy and heartbreaking by turns. I love it when I identify with characters so much that I do get tears when one is hurting and want to smack one for being so stupid and thoughtless.
I felt a bit of disconnect over the situation between Joel, his dad, and his mom. I think a little bit more history was needed there to really understand why Joel acted as he did. But it didn't make a difference to my enjoyment of the eventual outcome. I really liked Andrew with his strong personality, who knew how to stand up for himself and what he deserved. His dad and Regina were a hoot, inappropriate without being OTT, and added some great humor. Romance lovers, this is a book you don't want to miss.
Good story, great writing and well-developed characters (including some awesome secondary characters like Andrew’s dad!) make this book a winner in my mind. I’m definitely looking forward to reading the next book in this series.
Joel Rhodes comes to this small little town in hopes to open a chain of one of his dad's coffee houses! Anything to prove to his dad that he is more than capable of one day running the business. On his first night there he is attracted to a very cute and sexy man having dinner with what appears to be his family! With a few sexy glances they end up having one remarkable evening together.
Andrew Kelly has always pictured himself settling down with a husband, few kids and some animals! Unfortunately, the men he meets don t seem to find Lavender Shores as homey as he does! For some reason that one night with Joel has all those feelings coming back.
Now that he is spending more time with Joel showing him property listings the connection seems to be getting stronger even after he meets some of his family and friends! They all mean well but can be a bit much at times!
Andrew can tell Joel wants there to be more but he senses something is holding him back!
What a great story to introduce such amazing characters! You will love not only Joel and Andrew but the many characters that come along the way!!!
