Welcome to Tucker Springs, Colorado, where sparks fly when opposites attract—but are some obstacles too great to overcome?
When tattoo artist Seth Wheeler meets his new neighbor, it’s like a revelation. Darren Romero is everything Seth wants in a man: hot, clever, single, and interested. For a minute he seems perfect. Then Darren drops the bomb: he moved to Tucker Springs to be a pastor at the New Light Church.
As a gay man whose parents threw him out, Seth has a strict policy of keeping believers at arm’s length for self-preservation. But Darren’s perseverance and the chemistry bubbling between them steadily wear down his defenses.
In a small town like Tucker Springs, Seth can’t avoid Darren—or how much he wants him. Which means he needs to decide what’s more important: protecting himself, or his feelings for his neighbor.
Another book I’ve read before but forgot. And it is a re-edited rerelease, so even if I did remember, some things changed.
I’m a little leary of books that have religion in them. That is my own personal prejudice. But because of that, I really felt for Seth, an atheist with a pretty deep hatred for organized religion. So of course his new across the hall neighbor is a super hot, gay, minister.
I have to say that the back and forth with the 2 guys was very respectful of each other’s views. And really, that was kind of the point of the whole thing. That they don’t have to agree to then still have a relationship. I still say a hardcore atheist and a minister is an odd combo that I don’t see lasting, but hey. This is fiction.
This was one of those quick “beach reads” as I call them. Nothing too deep or angsty. Not a ton of plot, a lot of hot sex and at least a happy for now ending.
