Caddock ‘The Brute’ Stanford lost his brother and rugby career within the same year. The once man-about-town is now a has-been and guardian to his young nephew. Not sure where life will go after the scrum, he decides to purchase a pub in the Cornwall village of Looe. He never expects to fall in lust—and then love.
Francis Keen hides his crippling anxiety behind his eccentric habits, lush interior design, and beloved dog, Sherlock. Alone by choice after an attack in college left him emotionally scarred, he lives by the sea with his gran, resigned to working small jobs for local businesses. Revamping the pub for the new owner is right up his alley—especially when he realizes who the owner is.
Two men, so different, on track for a romantic collision. Can they survive the impact?
I've really enjoyed reading this book.It was such a sweet read with some hot and sexy moments.
Caddock,retired rugby player,and Francis,stylish interior designer,can't be more different from each other but it takes one look to spark their chemistry and sexual attraction.They soon understand they have to fight against prejudices and old fears in order to become stronger as a person and as a couple/family.
This was the first time I've read something written by this author but it won't be the last because her characters and the places were very well depicted,they seem so real I wanted to be their friend and visit Looe (Cornwall) to discover its Pub and Backery.
