Years ago, Calvin Ware found a refuge in Neverwood, a home for wayward boys. Now, following the death of his foster mother Audrey, he’s returned to fulfill her request to restore the decrepit Victorian mansion to its former purpose.
Under the threat of repossession, Cal clashes with his foster brothers over restoration plans while fending off the unscrupulous developer who is breathing down his neck. Audrey’s well-meaning presence in his dreams does more harm than good as he struggles to cope with it all. What’s more, the contractor he hires to get the building up to code turns out to be Will Cabot, his high school flame.
As they begin working together, Cal finds he still has feelings for his first love. But his mistakes of years ago threaten their future, just as they ruined their past, and Cal knows he can’t withstand the heartbreak a second time.
This book was most definitely different than what I thought it was going to be like. Honestly I am torn on whether I should rate it a three or a four because in some ways I liked it but in other ways I didn’t.
This is a book about three foster brothers who inherited the home they grew up in from their foster mom. The home needs so much work done to it and very limited time to come up with the money to get it done before an investment firm called PAC Western gets their hands on it. It is all a part of an agreement their mom signed before she passed.
With time not on their side a contracting firm is called in to help the boys get the house back in order. What one of the brothers, Calvin, did not expect is for his high school boyfriend Will to show up to do the work. There is so much that was left unsaid between them from before so it is making things awkward now.
The thing is there is so much that Calvin never got to say to Will and so much more that Will never knew about Calvin. Now the question is whether or not these brothers can get done what they need to do in order to protect the home that they all know needs to be protected. Also can Calvin and Will find their way back to one another?
This book was both good and bad. I did not like it because for the longest time throughout the read I really did not know what was going on other than them needing to save the house. I liked it because about three quarters of the way through it, things started to make sense to me and I finally got where the author was going with this book. So for these two reasons I was torn and did not know what I wanted to rate this book at. I decided to go ahead and follow what I did like about it with my rating. I just hope that the next book does not take so long to come together like this one did.
