As a teenager, Archie Noblesse clawed his way out of the poverty, heartache, and abuse of the reservation and left his family behind. Desperate to shake the shadow of his past, he reinvents himself as Archer Noble, an outspoken blogger and controversial author who lives only for himself. But when his beloved sister dies, Archer is saddled with guardianship of his niece and nephew.
Elementary school teacher Ryan Eriksson is devastated when his best friend Marguerite is killed, leaving her two young children orphaned. Helping Archer with his new responsibilities eases his grief, but when Archer offers him custody of the children, Ryan’s left with an impossible choice: get the family he’s always wanted, or respect Margie’s wishes and convince Archer to give parenting—and his heritage—a chance.
To buy time, Ryan promises to stay for the summer, hoping that Archer will change his mind and fall for the kids. But Archer’s reluctant, and the growing attraction between him and Ryan complicates matters. Legal decisions must be made, and soon, before Ryan returns to school. But with hearts involved, more than just the children’s future is on the line.
I thought this book was so beautiful!
Archie had a hard life growing up and he clawed himself out of the poverty, heartache, and abuse. He did not look back once he left and just wow!!! His character I will admit took me awhile to like. I am not a huge player fan so when I really started understanding Archie is when I switched from not being a huge fan of his to loving his character.
Ryan is a teacher who just wants and family, children but can not seem to find the right man to be by his side. He was just recently hurt by the man his was to marry. I really liked his character too! He was so sweet and caring even with the way Archie treated him, he was strong and stood right up to him which I loved!
There was sweet in this book along with a little bit of steam too when these men finally give in to their attraction to each other. I loved the way this author wrote this story! It was just so beautiful and sweet. I could not help rooting for these two men, hoping they would get their HEA.
So I will leave this review with… I really loved this book and would recommend it!
This book was very well written and I loved it. This was clearly a story that was very real and moving. Although I felt for Archie in the beginning, I did not like him right away after his sister died. Then he kind of grew on me. However, Ryan I had an immediate connection with. It was clear that Archie and Ryan had a connection and I was like Ryan and got angry at Archie for catting around. I loved Emma and Dillon and felt like they just could catch a break. I adored the ending and would love to hear more about Ryan and Archie. Oh and absolutely loved the cover.
