Lucky Tyler Holloway has never felt particularly lucky. Frankly, he’s about as regular as can be. He works construction with his brothers, loves his small-town life, and shares a close bond with his family—especially his grandmother. Okay, so maybe he has a few secrets in his closet, like his bisexuality…and that other thing he doesn’t talk about… Maybe that’s why he’s always felt a little like an outsider.
Grayson St. Claire has it all: a dream job in LA, money, freedom. Saint has no attachments, which is just the way he likes it. Still, he’d be lying if he didn’t admit he missed his deceased parents who were the only family he had… Until he gets an e-mail from some guy named Tyler revealing the existence of a grandmother he’s never met, and prompting Saint to drop everything to drive across the country.
Saint and Tyler couldn’t be more different. Tyler hates the guy on sight, but there’s something about Tyler that gets under Saint’s skin. It’s not until they get to know one another that everything begins to change. But the Holloways and St. Claire’s have secrets, and their pasts are tied together in tragic ways they don’t know about. The odds are stacked against them and between their distance and their differences, Lucky and Saint have to admit that love alone might not be enough.
This book was such an incredible read. Riley Hart truly wrote an amazing book here. I started it last night and just could not put the thing down. So needless to say, I stayed up late last night until I read every single word.
Tyler has always lived in Cottage Grove. He is the youngest child in his family and the only one who has not started a family of his own yet. He also has a secret. He knows he is bisexual but has yet to meet the man that he wants to act on that with. So instead he carries on helping his family and everyone in town, especially his Nana and her best friend Alice.
Nana and Alice have both lived together since both of their husbands passed away and Alice is like a second grandmother to Tyler. What Tyler did not know until now is Alice has a grandson in LA and lately she has been wanting to get in touch with him but has been afraid to do so in case he rejects her. So when Tyler finds out, he decides to track down the grandson and see if he wants to meet Alice. After a month of not hearing anything back from him, Tyler figured that he did not want to have anything to do with her.
Then one day while in town a stranger in a nice corvette pulls into to town and when Tyler sees him, he knows that this is Saint, Miss Alice’s grandson. Saint has always been a carefree individual. Though he is a successful PR person, he still loves the life he has with no strings attached. When he receives an email saying he has a grandmother that he knew nothing of, Saint is reluctant to believe it. He has missed having family around since his mom and dad died and to now find out he has a grandmother, it has been a bit of a surprise to him. At first he does not even know if he wants to meet her or believes that it could be true. But he could not get the email out of his mind and decided enough was enough and that he had to at least meet her.
When Saint and Tyler meet for the first time, sparks fly but not in a good way. They are both sizing the other up and there is some jealousy toward the other because of the situation. But regardless of the jealousy, neither man can deny that they have a mutual attraction that cannot be fought.
With secrets of the past between them, and the fact both men live so far apart, it is almost impossible to make a lasting relationship. Can these two men figure out a way to make things work between them even with everything that stands between them or does what they have found together have an expiration date on it?
This was truly an amazing read. I enjoyed every minute of this read. Riley Hart did an incredible job. I look forward to more by Riley in the future.
