One night isn’t supposed to lead to love.
Jamie Stone is rich, beautiful, and bored out of his skull. The past few years have been an endless round of parties, and the decadence has lost its lustre. When a late night decision to get away lands him in the small seaside town of Heather Bay, Jamie’s convinced he’s made a mistake.
Heather Bay is no Ibiza, but it does have Will.
Will is stressed, stretched, and doesn’t have time for anything but work. He’s too busy trying to keep his head above water to focus on the London party boy who keeps ending up in his bed. Jamie is nothing but a distraction, but Will can’t resist coming back for more, especially with the harsh realities of farming nipping at his heels.
With the clock ticking on Jamie’s stay and the chaos of lambing season fast approaching, both men will have to look beyond themselves and let go of their fears. If they can, they might find the one thing they’ve always needed.
Like I Needed is a steamy and sweet hook-ups to lovers contemporary MM romance featuring a city boy with a hedonistic reputation, a gruff farmer in need of a break, endless amounts of snow, friends with no boundaries, terrible scrambled eggs, and the breathtaking beauty of the Yorkshire moors.
It is book three in the Heather Bay series and while it can be read as a standalone, it’s best enjoyed as part of the series.
This series just has my heart. This is the third book in the Heather Bay series, and I hope that it goes on for a while. It is not high angst, has lots of happy endings (of all kinds) and the characters are such varying personalities, but yet all have something to contribute to the group of friends. I can imagine hanging out with them on one of those Friday nights and having a blast as they all harass each other.
Jamie, a rich boy who is mostly ignored by his parents, and partied and slept with anyone and everyone finally decided he needed something different in his life. So, he heads out to Heather Bay, and finds what he was looking for without knowing that was what he needed. He transitioned slowly throughout the book, going from never having seen a sheep to having one give birth in his hands, and bottle feeding baby lambs. It was gradual, but he just slotted himself in well at the farm, and into Will’s life.
Will, a workaholic by necessity as much as desire, really didn’t have time for Jamie, but he made time. First with a little fun in Jamie’s hotel room, then as Jamie came to the farm showing him how he could help Will with some of the farm’s needs. Will grew as well, learning to trust that Jamie wasn’t on his way out of town, and finding ways to show him that he was needed on the farm.
This was a low angst book, there wasn’t a huge breakup and makeup, no angry words. It really was just two men slowly falling in love, while learning to trust and feel, something they never knew how to do before.
I loved this, and can’t wait to read the next story, and (hopefully!) get to listen to this one on audiobook, as well.
