After the death of his wife, Tanner Rowe takes a step toward making her dream come true and buys the house with the dilapidated barn she’d been inexplicably drawn to in the picturesque Upper Peninsula. But after a year, he still can’t get past his grief long enough to make the repairs he’d promised.
Recently out of prison, Cole Lachlan has little to his name. Homeless, broke, and without many options as a felon, Cole heads to Red Bluff with hopes of a second chance. There he meets Tanner, whose loneliness mirrors his own, and soon Cole is trading room and board for rebuilding the burned-out barn on Tanner’s property that hasn’t been touched in seventy years.
Turns out, the barn holds more secrets than either of them could have imagined. After unearthing a hidden journal from 1948, Cole and Tanner spend their evenings poring over the pages, reading about a young man pining after his best friend. The deeper they delve into this forbidden affair from the past, the more Cole and Tanner’s own relationship shifts—from acquaintances to friends…to undeniable attraction.
But as they begin to deal with the newness of falling in love in the wake of Tanner’s loss and Cole’s past, they also become more determined to unravel the mystery of the young lovers who’ve captured their hearts, the rumors about the fire, and what really happened that fateful night.
When I read the blurb for this book, I was extremely intrigued…When I saw the names of the authors, I knew I HAD to read it!! I am familiar with, and a fan of both of their work. I knew a book written by both of them, might very well kill me though…and guess what? It nearly did! 😉
I loved this story, it was beautiful and heartbreaking at the same time. I don’t want to spoil it though, so I am gonna keep my review as vague as possible…Sorry about that (not really) I just think this is one of those books, you should just jump into, without knowing too much…Do it!!
I loved both Cole and Tanner, they were pretty awesome characters. Cole just got out of prison and Tanner has been dealing with the loss of his beloved wife Emma… Both of these men are broken in their own way, but fate has something planned for them…and so they cross paths in the best of ways.
There was such a sweetness to this story, it made me smile throughout the book, which made up for the tears it also made me shed…Cole has almost always known he was gay, but Tanner has only ever been with women and he has only ever loved Emma. Men have never been on Tanner’s radar before Cole entered his life.
So this one is definitely a “bi for you“. I was a bit worried about Tanner dealing with the loss of his wife and Cole having to stand in her shadow, but I thankfully never once felt that was the case. I actually didn’t mind reading about her and I would have even liked a bit more info about her and how/why she passed away.
I am a big fan of GFY or BFY stories and Tanner getting in touch with his new-found sexuality was all kinds of sexy…and HOT! 😛
Emotional, sweet, sexy and beautiful…I highly recommend!!! 💗
