Should falling in love really get in the way of your lifelong dreams?
Sebastian Saunders is 3000 miles away from home. Working for his father’s expanded business in New York, he’s left behind the music career he craved, the friends he relied upon and possibly the love of his life. In a city that never sleeps, how can the nights cure a broken heart?
Jay Ruttman is in London, throwing himself harder into football and his quest to make it on the professional playing field. Locking himself back in the closet, how can he ever open the door, and his heart, again?
A chance encounter in New York where Jay and Seb rekindle their lost romance sets them both on a path to self-discovery and coming to terms with their past, their present and their future.
This is the second part of the District Line serial, where half-time oranges are swapped for the Big Apple.
Good, good things happened here.
I hate to give away the entire story, which I feel like is all I can do to give an accurate description of this bridge book between Kick Off and Come Back, so I’ll try to summarize my feelings about this book without recapping the story.
First of all, I have so much love for Seb. He is true to himself, even when he makes royally stupid decisions. But, he doesn’t care about his pride when he’s screwed up… he will make amends and in a big way.
Jay is no stranger to big decisions and life changes and he’s quite brilliant when it comes to making them. He’s also pretty spectacular when it comes to grand gestures, as is Seb.
This book was a firework of declarations and grand gestures and it was all about the feelings. I loved how many issues there were and how each was overcome. This was an exceptional followup to Kick Off and I can’t wait to read more of Jay and Seb’s tale in Come Back.
