Cole Renzo thinks his greatest challenge is to behave for the remainder of his term at Halfway House. Until he meets his new boss, Ty Calloway, a man who ticks off every box on Cole’s list of interests.
A sought-after restorer and customizer of exotic and collectible cars, Ty had enough confidence to command what he wanted in life, until one fateful night changed everything. Almost two years later, he’s slowly rebuilding his life with great control. He’s defied the odds and works tirelessly to be the man he once was—but he still feels broken.
Cole’s candor and unfiltered personality awaken Ty’s barely-remembered desire to greet each new day with a smile, while Ty’s unwavering acceptance of Cole’s quirks and brash humor makes Cole feel as if he fits in for the first time in far too long. When a nemesis threatens Ty’s personal restoration and the things he holds dear, Cole is determined to protect their relationship, even if that means sacrificing everything he’s worked so hard to achieve.
But Ty will have to let his guard down, surrender control, and admit he needs Cole first, even if that puts himself at risk of breaking beyond repair.
This is the story of Ty
Superhero undies and all;)
Cole was a car thief. Fresh out of prison he starts working for Ty, a car restorer. Match made in heaven, right? And they were a perfect match.
I loved Cole’s personality. His struggle to control himself and his mouth was adorable. I liked how he pushed Ty’s boundaries in order to help him find himself again.
What I loved the most (and this goes for all the books in the series) is that the characters had the guts to admit their feelings. They didn’t hide their emotions, they took the risk and owned their feelings.They made love, not just sex.
The slow burn almost killed me in this one but it was worth it because their chemistry when they finally got together…
There was a Fast and Furious scene towards the end, which almost made me pass out, and then the epilogue. And what a magnificent epilogue it was!
“I love you, My-Ty. More than you can imagine. I’m glad I got arrested. I know I sound crazy, but I’m here with you, right now, because of that.
