After a hard life filled with experiences he’d rather not remember but can’t forget, Brett Taylor decides he doesn’t need anyone or anything. He gets a job at a bar in a nothing little town where he can fish and race dirt bikes and hide from the world. So naturally as he’s walking across the parking lot at his new job, reminding himself how self-reliant he is, he meets someone he can’t shove aside.
Brett can’t help but admire Cory Butana, the kid who lives above the bar where his father is the principal bartender. Unwanted by either parent, the sweet, personable Cory grew up neglected and hungry for affection. Now he’s determined to make something of his life, even if he has to work himself ragged to do it.
Cory shouldn’t have to suffer like Brett did, and Brett wants to lend a hand. But when their relationship evolves into something Brett isn’t ready to need, he reacts… and the consequences may destroy their fledgling future. With scars like theirs, forgiveness is never easy.

It seemed unnecessary to add this trauma to Cory's life and some of the c...
I really couldn't get into the MCs POV with all the phonetic spelling. It's one of my big pet peeves in fiction.
This book really deals with some really ugly issues and the not so savoury side of life and human nature. It had me really wanting to look away at times, taking me way beyond my usual comfort zone, but hoping that good will win through in the end. It may sound terribly clichéd but the author deals w...
3 StarsI actually really liked most of this book despite the rating. The best friend to lover story in this book was wonderful. It was a long wait but so worth it. I fell in love with both of the MCs and found myself truly invested in them as not only a couple but also as individuals. Not that they ...
