A Thornwood Novel

Needy. Obsessive. Clingy. Twenty-five-year-old Eli Walker has heard it all. That’s why he doesn’t bother calling back the guys he’s been with anymore. Sex should be about fun, not a relationship, and no one has complained about him getting overly attached in years. If only he actually felt wanted for once instead of empty and used when guys are done with him.

Grayson Pendleton is a wealthy business consultant with clients all over the world. His life is often glamorous, but it leaves him no time for a relationship, and at forty-eight, he’s starting to notice the lack of romance in his life. His only romantic connection is Eli, but they’re just two guys who have sex occasionally. It took him months to get Eli’s first name, and even now they only communicate through a hookup app.

When Grayson inherits a house in Thornwood, Colorado, it’s one more thing he doesn’t need in his life, and he knows he won’t be there enough to enjoy it. Still, the old house has the potential to be a home, and more importantly, it gives Grayson a chance to save Eli when he needs it most.

I really enjoyed this book. It is a messed up situation with a happy ending.

Eli’s heart is where he works. He works at an animal rescue for horses called Green Acres. This place is where he is truly his happiest because this is the place that not only saves horses but saved him also when he was younger and just graduated high school. The owner Evaline found Eli and gave him a job and a place to stay until Eli was able to get on his feet. Now this place is his happiness.

The problem is outside of Green Acres Eli does not get close to anyone. The closest he gets is meeting people on a hook up app but never getting to know them more then the wam bam that both get f on the app.

Well that is u till he meets Greyson on several occasions to hook up and Greyson starts to slowly get to know Eli better. But during this time Eli is dealing with some other issues outside of his job that is affecting his life. The Closer Greyson tried to get to Eli the harder Eli tries to push him away.

Inevitably Greyson wins the tug of war one little moment at a time. Eli finally starts to give in on getting to know one another and BAM someone from Greyson past comes in and makes trouble for both Eli and Greyson.

Can Greyson ever get Eli to fully trust that he will not hurt him and that he wants to make a life together? Or will Eli push one too many times and Greyson will walk away?

This book is a good read about doing what you love as far as a job is concerned and slowly letting that love for your job slowly slide over into the rest of your life. It is a good read about learning to trust. I can’t wait till the next book comes out.

Advanced Review Copy

Galley copy of Somewhere To Belong (Thornwood #3) provided by Dreamspinner Press in exchange of an honest review.


Hello, I am an avid reader of male/male books. I do not have a favorite genre when it comes to male/male books because I love all of them from romance, dark reads, paranormal, shifter, threesome, whatever I see that catches my eye at the time. I read books about rock stars, CEOs, military, cops, and just the original plain old good boy types of books. Basically when it comes to a book, I read whatever I am in the mood for at the time. So my tastes varies from day to day and sometimes even hour to hour.
