Last month, Alex Barrow’s whole life imploded—partner, home, job, all gone in forty-eight hours. But sometimes when everything falls apart, better things appear almost like magic. Now, he’s back in his Michigan hometown, finally opening the bakery he’s always dreamed of. But the pleasure of opening day is nothing compared to the lonely and beautiful man who bewitches Alex before he even orders.
Corbin Wale is a weirdo. At least, that’s what he’s heard his whole life. He knows he’s often in a fantasy world, but the things he feels are very real. And so is the reason why he can never, ever be with Alex Barrow. Even if Alex is everything he’s always fantasized about. Even if maybe, just maybe, Corbin is Alex’s fantasy too.
When Corbin begins working at the bakery, he and Alex can’t deny their connection any longer. As the holiday season works its magic, Alex yearns for the man who seems out of reach. But to be with Alex, Corbin will have to challenge every truth he’s ever known. If his holiday risk pays off, two men from different worlds will get the love they’ve always longed for.
The Remaking of Corbin Wale is a unique story!
I’ve read a few books by this Author and enjoyed them-but, this is something completely different.The writing is special, and, captivating, the story has a wonderful, almost, magical feel about it.
Alex Barrow has returned to his hometown after his life in New York imploded in a matter of days.When his mother asks him to take over the running of the family cafe he sees his dream and sets about turning it into a Bakery.On opening day he catches sight of a beautiful young man who seems to be lost in his own world.
Corbin Wale is different.Shunned by people from a young age, he’s lead a lonely life.People have labeled him a freak and he thinks he is one.He truly believes his family is cursed if they love someone….so he escapes into his own world where he has people…a friend?a lover?…someone who is there for him when he needs them.
Alex and Corbin are drawn to each other from their first encounter.It are not insta lust or love-it’s almost as if an external force brought them together.This is an extremely slow burn which worked so well.Corbin sees the world differently from others-he sees beauty in simple things and reading the story from his pov was an absolute joy.No one came close to really understanding Corbin…until Alex.
Both men have pasts but in the end, it’s, quite simply, a beautiful love story.
