Abused horrifically as a boy, Nick Mathers has come to terms with his existence as a man. Mostly. Other days life seems a little much. Especially when Nick knows he’ll always be alone.
On those days his thoughts turn black. He walks the Norfolk coast and considers the frigid embrace of the waves. And then, one stormy night, he finds someone who’s tasted just that. The beautiful stranger on the beach is near death, and Nick rushes him home to slowly nurse back to health. As he does, he finds a love unlike any other. Owen Butler’s body is as warm as the sea was cold, his heart as big as an ocean. And Owen is a man who swears to repay the favor. Nick can yet be saved from himself, and he will see that he is indeed a man… worth keeping.

Intense story... What Nick had to overcome!!! I liked that two broken souls could heal each other. I didn't like the stalker boyfriend Brad. Mostly because the story went another direction. I would have liked it more reading about the road Nick and Owen were taking to overcome their hurt!!! But it w...
I love a good damaged characters story. These poor fellas have that in spades, especially Nick. His life has been just plain tragic. This story grabs your heart and pulls it into all the pain and love going on. It's quite deep in that aspect. Also, it is very interesting. The characters and set...
Love does not come easily to Nick. He has been battered too often, his latest at the hands of a sociopath lover whom he narrowly escaped from just a short time before Owen came into his life, but Owen is steady and sure and certain that Nick was meant to be loved, and by no one other than himself.
