It’s time to come home, Finn.
It’s been seven years since Daniel Finley left his hometown in Florida for the hustle and bustle of Chicago’s city life.
Since then, he’s worked hard for his position at the prestigious law firm Leighton & Associates, even when it’s caused distance and isolation from his family and friends. But that’s all about to change.
On his thirtieth birthday, he receives the one thing he never dared hope for. Something that was promised to him years earlier—a note. One simple sentence from the man he’s never been able to forget.
Six words will forever change the course of their lives.
Brantley Hayes has it all. Or so he thinks. When he first made the decision to take a job down in Florida, his family thought he was crazy. But, after years of living in the quiet beach town, he finally feels a sense of community. He’s surrounded himself with friends who are like family, has a job he loves, and owns a spectacular beachfront property that is his sanctuary.
Yet he still feels unfulfilled, as if a piece of the puzzle is missing, and he knows exactly which piece it is. On an impulse, he follows through with a promise he made years earlier. A promise to call home the one he sent away.
Nothing is as simple as it seems.
After years of separation, the former lovers are reunited, but Brantley wasn’t expecting to encounter the high walls now guarding Daniel’s heart.
Daniel may not be the same person he was when he left, but he knows that the first step to healing is the note in his hand.
Finley is a wonderful second chance romance story which is enhanced by the author’s signature writing style of infusing emotions with mind blowing chemistry. The book is the story of Daniel Finley and the man he had to leave behind in his home town, Brantley Hayes, and their second chance at their once in a life time love. This book is a beautiful story of two men who find their much awaited chance to reconnect and find their happily ever after.
I loved this book..!!! I loved the characters and the story, infact I loved every single thing in this book..!! The author has done a tremendous job in weaving a story which is heartfelt yet at the same time highly erotic. I loved both Finn and Brantley. Finn deep inside is still hurt by Brantley’s actions and he has changed as a result of what made him leave his home. From Brantley’s point of view what he did was for Finn’s best and what he wanted was for him to have a bright future. They both were right from their point of view and the pain and hurt they conceal has been portrayed realistically yet in a manner bound to make our heart go out to them. What I really loved was how the author made them both reconnect and made them realize that they both still love each other. The book throws light on how they both got together in the first place through flash backs and I do have to say that Finn is really endearing as a teenager. I simply adored him…!! I loved the way author has developed their bond. The love that they both have for each other is the deep profound once in a life time kind of love which will make us root for them through out the book..!!
The author has made them reconnect through their mind blowing sexual chemistry. To say that their chemistry is intense would just not be enough. It is so palpable that it got me hot and bothered as I read the book. Finn and Brantley together is explosive, passionate, intense and mind blowing hot. The author has done a fantastic job in building their sexual tension and the resultant effect is simply amazing. Finn wants sex with Brantley to get him out of his system and move on with life and Brantley is read to take whatever he gets from him. What starts off as sex turns into love all over again for them..!!
The book is awesome and I LOVED IT..!! All I’m going to say is read it..!! You don’t need to even think twice..!! You are guaranteed to be on an awesome, fantabulous, sexy ride which will leave you wanting for more…!!!
