Wounded warrior Jake Cramer returned from the Middle East missing part of one leg and with a partially paralyzed left arm. He feels useless in his family’s construction business, but carpentry is all he knows. He needs to relearn how to work and how to live. He can’t even consider finding a man to love. Who would want him this way?
Alex Ford is a top-of-the-line architect who’s tired of big cities and wants to settle down, maybe run a small inn. The mansion he inherited from his grandparents might be the ticket to his dream, but it needs a lot of work. When he meets the handsome builder, he knows he’s made the right decision. He just needs to convince Jake that his scars don’t matter. Unfortunately Alex’s greedy family has other ideas, and they’re determined to ruin Alex’s plans and take the inheritance for themselves—even if they have to kill to do it.
This was a wonderful story with a little mystery/suspense to it. I really liked Jake and Alex. Jakes strength to deal with his physical issues was awesome. I really enjoyed his attitude. Alex was awesome as well. I liked how he interacted with Jake. His family was nuts though. Alex and Jake were so much fun to watch come together and deal with everything that was going on. The characters were very well written and the story itself was interesting and entertaining.
