Actor Jacob Riley is a typical former Hollywood child star with serious issues. He has already done prison time, and at the age of twenty-six has been arrested for possession yet again.
Quietly working to make the world a better place, Ethan Myers is the owner and manager of Macs, an education center for local, low-income families. Losing his partner to cancer has left him lost and alone, and he buries himself in his work in the hope it will mend his broken heart.
Sparks fly when Jacob is forced to complete his community service at Macs. Despite their best efforts to resist, the two men find themselves growing closer as a spoiled Jacob gains his first glimpse at the real world.
As Jacob’s time at Macs comes to an end is there any chance their fragile relationship can survive?
Moments by R.J. Scott
This was a nice enjoyable read.
Jacob is a famous actor and (recovering) addict. He has been sentenced to 4 months of community service at Mac’s, because of possession. I didn’t really like Jacob in the beginning.
He was a bit of an entitled asshole.
Mac’s is run/owned by Ethan. He threw his heart and soul into it, after the loss of his lover. Ethan was a good guy, he was considerate and sweet…a total opposite of Jacob.
These two don’t start off on the right foot, but as we all know….
…hate can quickly turn to lust…
This also means that Jacob’s behavior does an 180. That doesn’t mean everything is all sunshine and roses though.
They have plenty of things to work out.
The background story involves the other residents and family members.
Even though I enjoyed reading this one, there were a few things that bothered me, which are Jacobs fast 180 and the misunderstanding at the end.
This is personal though…misunderstandings and miscommunication…
…always make my eyes twitch.
