New house, new job. A new start with his brother….
Two out of three isn’t bad, right?
Rhys returns to his hometown and must face the brother he’s been avoiding for two years. In his heart, Rhys still hopes to recapture the bond they once shared.
Jake willingly offers him the hand of friendship, but Rhys is reluctant to confront their past, fearing it will only rip them apart again.
When Rhys sees ghostly figures in the grounds of a local historic house, it leads him to investigate their shocking past—and to face his heart’s true desire.
What a wonderful love story! Two men bound by blood and friendship fall in love; two men who happen to be brothers.
Rhys, and his older brother, Jake have always been close, very close. However, Rhys starts to feel guilty about the relationship with his brother, and moves away. Two years later, he’s back in their hometown, wanting to make amends with his brother. While Rhys is settling into his new home, he struggles with his growing love for his brother. He also becomes interested in the history of an estate in the area, particularly when he thinks he’s seen a ghost.
Jake is patient with Rhys, allowing him to come to the realisation that they are still in love with each other.
The story is very well written, with a few twists. There’s a mystery involving the past history of 2 men (a history that is a little similar to Rhys and Jake’s current situation).
This could have been any love story; it just happened to be between brothers. I was engaged from the start and didn’t feel that the relationship was written for shock value. The only thing that niggled at me was how accepting the people in their circle were about the relationship – there was barely a ripple. But, I like fairly angst-free stories, so I got over that right quick ☺
Lovely story, highly recommend.
