From an Olympic Gold Medalist to jail inmate, one man’s journey to rebuild his life after hitting rock bottom.
Once a celebrated athlete, Guy Hoisington fell from grace and into a bottle. For years, the citizens of Cattle Valley went out of their way to avoid the drunk lecher, but one man, Shane Rendell, not only dated Guy during a brief period of relative sobriety but fell in love with him before he was hastily cast aside.
Living within the thick haze of liquor and sex, Guy rarely made good decisions, but on one particular dark night, he makes the worst decision of his life when he decides to drive down the mountain after a long evening of drinking. He wakes from a coma to discover he’s run an innocent man off the road and has a life-changing injury. For the first time in a very long time, Guy is able to look at himself through sober eyes, and he hates the man in the mirror. In one stupid move, he’s lost everything.
Shane has tried for two years to move on with his life after falling for the town alcoholic, but when he learns of Guy’s accident, he rushes to the hospital. Although the entire town may hate Guy, Shane is determined to prove Guy hasn’t lost everything.
I have been waiting for this story it seems like forever.
Like every resident in Cattle Valley I saw this polished prick that needed a good kick in the nads to get him out of that high cloud he appeared to be on. Every time Guy came and did something that just about pissed me off, but like a good romantic a just knew he needed to find his other half and all would be well.
Little did I know! I should have known better. Every resident of CV has gone there for a reason and they are all looking to redeem themselves, some just need a little push; others, well lets just say that I’m glad all worked in the end.
I read something someone who was pissed at the whole outcome said and I do get it that there was this big deal going on but I also know that many victims just want to let sleeping dogs lie. It’s not like Guy could do anything about it and I really think that even with Shane’s support he would have fallen of the wagon if everything came out.
I cried like a baby every time something of Guy or Shane’s past was revealed and that is what I like about Carol Lynne. She makes you feel, like really feel for this guys and by the end of every book you are so emotionally invested that it really makes you happy to know that the characters are on their way to a HEA like no other.
