When his sister is murdered, Myles gains custody of her son, Simon. He also faces the reappearance of his ex-lover, Zayne. Will their love rekindle or will custody of Simon--along with another murder--drive the two men apart?
When his sister, Carrie, is murdered, bookshop owner Myles Foster gains custody of her precocious five-year-old son, Simon. He also has to deal with the reappearance of his ex-lover, Zayne, a private detective. While trying to come to grips with both, another woman is murdered.
Myles--with the help of Mazie, Simon's babysitter--learns to adjust to having a child in his life. Having Zayne back in his world is more problematic, since Zayne left Myles for a younger man. Slowly, but surely, Zayne tries to break down the walls between them as they attempt to figure out why Carrie was murdered and pass on their ideas to the detective in charge of the case.
Can the murderer be stopped before he kills again? And, more importantly, will Myles be able to cope not only with caring for Simon, but also learning to trust that Zayne might truly love him?
I love this author what can I say! I read this story in one sitting because I had to know what happens with Myles and Simon and of course Zayne. The book started right of the bat with a mysterious twist that had me wondering what the hell happened to Myles's sister Carrie and where would that leave Simon. Simon has to be one of the cutest kids I ever read about, too smart and to wise for his age. I love how the author wrote the relationship between Myles and Simon, you could tell how much they love each other and needed each other after their loss.
In comes Zayne. I wanted to hate him and I did in the beginning. I mean who walks out on someone you love for another man and then walks back in to his life and feels as if Myles should be ok with it. But as I got to know Zayne, he cares about Myles and has never stopped loving him and you can tell that is the case with him being there for him and helping him with Simon and the little things he would do. I think Myles should had made him suffer more but he was going through a tragedy in his life. I like how Myles and Zayne almost start fresh in their relationship (I hope i'm not ruining anything...lol) I thought the story was intriguing and loving all in one. Can't wait to read more by this author. 4-4.5 stars
