Blurb: Matthew Doner is starting over. After a five-year prison term that alters every aspect of his life, he receives a bequest from his aunt with the stipulation that he use the money to make things right. Breaking free of the long-standing role he’s played and inspired by the few who support him, he decides to create a safe place where people like him can find purpose and start a new life.
Julian Capeletti likes challenges. He is confident, brash, stubborn, and just what Matt needs. Desperate for work after a downturn of luck, he accepts the job to renovate Matt’s crumbling building.
Over the course of a year, romance simmers between them as they restore the house. But there’s a bigger renovation that must take place in their hearts. To become better men, they need to learn to trust each other even with secrets and painful memories they fear may rip them apart.
This book has me from page one, it was such an emotional book ranging from humor, love, angst and a mix of mystery. What I loved about this book is that it picks up basically where book one, A Better Man leaves off. We get to revisit the beautiful Matt and Julian who both built this wonderful Halfway House to give ex Cons a chance to survive in the real world. We get to meet Cameron (Cam) Pierce and Hunter Donovan in this book. Cam who was just released after a torturous 10 year jail term, and first resident of the new Halfway House .
Cameron has learned in his jail stay to build up iron clad Walls to protect himself , that is until he meets Hunter a high profile attorney, then all nets are off. I won’t go into too much detail because I think that everyone should experience the true depths of all the emotions that these two men endure to be together.
It can be read as a standalone but I highly recommend you read the first book of this amazing series, A Better Man, to experience the full experience of this beautiful story.
I give this a 5 pieces of eye candy rating.
