Ryder Daniels and Jason Mallory seem to have it all but even the most loving marriage takes work. Ryder’s past leads him to remain silent yet resentful in the face of conflict while Jason strives to prove he can take care of his family without Ryder’s wealth, even if it costs him precious time with his husband and daughter.
When a devastating illness leaves them shaken and helpless, Ryder is forced to face the one person he never thought to see again with a life or death request that even he isn’t sure will be granted, but his decisions have far-reaching consequences. Believing he and Ryder have no secrets, Jason is distraught to discover otherwise, revealing yet another crack in their once-perfect relationship.
Adrift and uncertain, both struggle to hold onto a love previously thought unshakeable. A forbidden past is exposed, shocking Ryder to the core, but it means little without Jason by his side. Marriage is a partnership and both men must learn that only by working through their pain and heartbreak together can they achieve a lifetime of love.
An enjoyable follow up to Rescued, the second story in the Rescued Heart series once again follows the life and struggles of Ryder and Jason.
Note that I would not recommend this as a standalone. The two books need to be read in order to really understand all that’s happening.
Told, once again, in dual POV, this time around Jason and Ryder have a lot to work through including their own relationship (I sort of felt Jason was a bit of a jackass there), their daughter’s health, Ryder’s mother, as well as secrets long buried.
Reunited is quite a bit more angsty than Rescued, but has the same love, passion and sweetness at its core.
“And I love you more today than I did that night I came out to my parents. I could never stop loving you.”
This is a solid established couple romance with a worth-it HEA. All in all I enjoyed it and felt it is a pretty worthwhile sequel.
