Sometimes curves in the road take you right where you belong.
Luther Almond’s life working the Bakken oil field is perfect—short-lived jobs, temporary housing, and easy hookups. That’s one reason he won’t move home when he inherits the lake house. When Erik Heat bends over to fix Luther’s pipes, his tattoos hint he might be up for more than working on the drain. The last thing Luther expects is to want more from this guy than one night.
Every time they’re together, Luther is more grounded and Erik more confident. When the lake house demands attention, Luther asks for Erik’s help. There he imagines a more permanent life, one where he stops running. But he wants Erik by his side. Can he find the courage—and the words—to ask?
Erik was a sweetheart right off the bat. Likeable. Cute. Perhaps a little shy. He knew what he wanted (Luther), but he stuck to his principles and got to know the man first before hopping into bed with him. *swoon*
This book took turns I didn’t expect… but then I felt like it didn’t finish those turns. There was a lot about Erik that we didn’t get to learn and I was left with a lot of questions.
And Luther had a stubborn streak in him, which caused the controversy in the story. It was a little too easy, but honestly, sometimes you need fun and easy and cute. This book definitely satisfied my sweet tooth.
Bottom Line: I’ll read it again.
