Ezekiel Matthers and Brendon Shanahan are about to find out that sometimes all it takes is a subtle breeze to shift the winds of fate.

Ezekiel Matthers is a reclusive man, forcing himself into the exile of his ranch after a violent assault left him wounded. While the scars on the outside have faded, the damage inside is much harder to conquer. Zeke resigns himself to a solitary existence, aside from his sister Enessa and, of course, his mama’s occasional visits.

Brendon Shanahan has a very meddling cousin, Gloria, who is best buds with Enessa Matthers. When the two women convince Brendon that he should hook-up with the reclusive Zeke, a plan is hatched that sets a series of events into motion – with potentially deadly consequences.

Can Ezekiel conquer his fears and accept what Brendon is offering? Or will Brendon walk away, giving up on the love he has waited for? And will the visits from Zeke’s mama – deceased for four years now – help the two men find their way to each other?

Only time will tell, and that may be the one thing the lovers don’t have, because someone is out to destroy everything Zeke and Brendon hold dear – and this time, the bad guy just might succeed.

Poor Zeke to have what happened to him by someone who should have been supportive no matter what just because they were a mean and vindictive person.  I really liked Zeke’s character in this book and how he was stronger by the end of this when he realized there was people who would be there for him.
Brendon I really liked him too.  He was strong for Zeke from the get go and wanted to be there for him to help him through everything that happened.
Now this book has some very hot Scenes from the get go.. A lot of really hot scenes which usually I am not a fan of but in this novella it works.
Once you find out who is behind everything you feel anger and sick to your stomach because without saying who did it and giving away spoilers, you can’t help thinking what a “insert bad word here”.  So not a fan of that person!
I can’t be the only one that finds it so sweet that his ghost visitor is who it is and still visits him too makes sure he is okay.  I loved the paranormal aspect to this story too!
All together I really liked this Novella and would definitely recommend it!

This was a very good start to the series.  It was a sweet read.  The only thing I found a little unbelievable is that they didn’t hardly have a conversation and they were having sex. You think they could have gotten to know each other first, (laughing).

I liked Brendon for how caring he was to Zeke when he needed it the most. Zeke on the other hand was a little harsh to Brendon, trying to push him away. The chemistry between the two did improve as the story went on.

I did love the twist to the story with the scent they kept smelling. I am anxious to read the next installment, maybe it will be about the Sheriff.
