At first, Harris is a grumpy, seemingly selfish, and arrogant man, who is put on leave after a patient had died under his hand in the operating room. He escapes to Seaside but finds nothing to his liking and everything to complain about. Then he meets Reid, the owner of the local restaurant, and everything changes. But not right away. Slowly but steadily Harris reveals his deeper self, that of a selfless and caring man, only wanting to help. And that is the man Reid falls in love with.
It is a slow-burn love story of two men who are hell-bent on keeping it casual. Neither man is looking for a commitment, but fate is a fickle friend. And fate brings these two men together, and they are perfect for each other. Reid is quite some years younger than Harris, but apart from the occasional quip about his age, there is no reference to the age gap at all. That is not what has them hesitating to move forward. It is their own fear that nearly destroys it all. Their chemistry is palpable. Even in the early stages of their relationship, before they even had exchanged a kiss, the air is sizzling and crackling with sexual tension. When they do come together, there are sparks flying all over the place.
Reid and Harris are realistic and very loveable characters. Even Harris, cranky as he is. Just like the secondary cast (Dylan, Sasha, and Grayson), and Maggie, Harris’s PA, who we never meet in person, only through the phone. But I like that feisty woman. She tells it like it is. Just like me, they kept rooting for these guys, and they might have helped them along a bit.
I am happy to know it is the first book in a series, and I can’t wait for the next story.
Thing aren’t going well for Harris; his GPS isn’t working, and he can’t find his hotel. He does see a hunky young blond jogging down the street. But the nice hotel is a hotel at all but a Bed and Breakfast, with his view of the ocean a mere sliver if you sit at the right window. To compound matters, it’s St. Patrick’s Day and the town’s bars and restaurants are all full. Harris isn’t used to waiting an hour for a meal. At the last place he goes to he runs into the hunky blond.
When a worker doesn’t show up for his shift, Reid is called in early to cover. His place, Gail’s Place is packed with locals and out of towners, all there for a good time on the holiday. When raised voices draw his attention to the hostess stand, he sees the good-looking guy that was eyeing him from his car.
So, begins the chemistry and romance between the two. Harris isn’t going to be in town for very long. And Reid doesn’t get involved with tourists. And yet, try as they might to keep things causal, emotions get involved. And the romance continues to bloom.
This is a beautiful story, with well-developed characters. I can’t wait for this author’s next story in this trilogy.
It is the first book in the new Changing Tides Trilogy.
I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Harris is a surgeon who has to get away for a while, so he heads to a tiny town in Oregon. He is just going to hide out there for a little but while his lawyers work on his malpractice suit.
As he arrives in town, he spots a striking blond man and starts to think a vacation fling might be in order.
Who is that striking blond man? It is Reid who owns a restaurant in town. He likes the looks of the new man in town, but he makes a practice of not getting involved with tourists.
But there are sparks. The chemistry between them is huge before they even kiss.
As they get to know each other, both can't help but to start falling in love.
It is a slow burn kind of love that is sweet.
And they start to think this temporary thing should be more permanent.
But how? Harris will be leaving town soon.
I really enjoyed this love story.
The town and the town people were all lots of fun. I always love when a town is a character itself.
I liked the development of Harris and Reid's relationship and they were sweet and charming together.
They were both realistic characters and very likeable, despite Harris's cranky moments.
And I look forward to the next installment and getting to know some of the other town members better.
