Half Moon Bay: Book Two

Angel Daniels grew up hard, one step ahead of the law and always looking over his shoulder. A grifter’s son, he’d learned every con and trick in the book but ached for a normal life. Once out on his own, Angel returns to Half Moon Bay where he once found… and then lost… love.

Now, Angel’s life is a frantic mess of schedules and chaos. Between running his bakery and raising his troubled eleven-year-old half brother, Roman, Angel has a hectic but happy life. Then West Harris returns to Half Moon Bay and threatens to break Angel all over again by taking away the only home he and Rome ever had.

When they were young, Angel taught West how to love and laugh, but when Angel moved on, West locked his heart up and threw away the key. Older and hardened, West returns to Half Moon Bay and finds himself face-to-face with the man he’d lost. Now West is torn between killing Angel or holding him tight.

But rekindling their passionate relationship is jeopardized as someone wants one or both of them dead, and as the terrifying danger mounts, neither man knows if the menace will bring them together or forever tear them apart.

Hanging The Stars is the second book in Half Moon Bay Series and tells the story of Angel and West and how they get a second chance at their forever. The author has crafted a story which is intriguing, beautiful, emotional and will give you on a wonderful reading experience.

Angel and West spent a summer together when they were teenagers and found that they have a deep emotional connection. But some circumstances forced them apart. Fast forward a few years they meet again and get a second chance for their love. What I really liked is that the story as much as it is about Angel and West, it is also about family, people, connections, love and relationships in their lives. The author tells the story of people who touch us with the deep emotional bond they share. Angel and West hides a lot of resentment and longing and they really have issues to overcome. The way they reconnected, the way author developed their relationship, their chemistry, the way author has explored it makes the story a wonderful read. The author has also woven elements of suspense with their love story. The secondary characters are also very well written and contribute a lot to the progression of their story.

Hanging The Stars is an amazing story which will give you a delightful reading experience. If you love suspense, romance and a bunch of wonderfully crafted characters, then you will surely love this book..!!
