What happens when temporary becomes forever?
Oz Gallagher does not do relationships well. Bored and jobless after another disastrous hook up, he decides to leave London for a temporary job in the wilds of Cornwall. Surely managing a stately home on a country estate will be easier than navigating the detritus of his relationships at home. Six months there will alleviate a bit of his wanderlust and then he can come back to London as footloose and fancy free as the day he left it.
However, when he gets there he finds a house in danger of crumbling to the ground and a man who is completely unlike anyone he’s ever met. An earl belonging to a family whose roots go back hundreds of years, Silas is the living embodiment of duty and sacrifice. Two things that Oz has never wanted. He’s also warm and funny and he draws Oz to him like a magnet.
Oz banks on the fact that they’re from two very different worlds to stop himself falling for Silas. But what will he do when he realises that these differences are actually part of the pull to one another? Will falling in love be enough to make him stop moving at last and realise that he’s finally home?
From bestselling author, Lily Morton, comes a romantic comedy about two very different men and one very dilapidated house.
This is the first book in the Finding Home series but it can be read as a standalone.
Good lord, there was so much to love about Oz by Lily Morton. In this first installment of the Finding Home series, we finally get Silas’ HEA. We first met him Risk Taker; he’s Henry’s brother. Lily Morton has paired him with a sassy mouthed Irishman named Oz, who’s hired to namage Silas’ estate.
What’s not to love Some highlights:
-Silas. Big, hairy, kind, patient, dirty mouthed Silas. I. Love. Everything. About. Him.
-Oz. Who doesn’t love a funny, snarky, loyal friend? He was such a joy to read.
-Although we still get Lily Morton’s signature snarky banter, the vibe of the book was gentler overall. It wasn’t as angsty as her previous books.
-No drawn out drama. Of course, there was a dark moment as in all romances, but it was resolved fairly quick.
-An amazing cast of secondary characters- that I can’t wait to read more of.
-Chemistry was smokin’! I wasn’t expecting Silas to be a bit of dirty talker, that was a pleasant surprise.
-And the end was everything the epilogue whore in me wanted and more!
