“Home is where his heart is once he recognizes what s in his heart.”

Broken in body, mind and spirit after a botched mission in Kuwait, elite Special Forces operative Jack Dresden returns to Devotion, Georgia, both dreading and longing to face his past. He left town on the receiving end of a wicked right hook thrown by the only person who ever made him feel he was right where he belonged.

Dillon Bluff was never good at pretending. Coming out right after high school, it hasn’t been easy dealing with the stigma of being gay in a small, Southern town. When he stumbles across Jack in the throes of a panic attack, one touch reignites the smoldering, hidden torch he’s always carried for his former best friend.

Jack knows he’s messed up, and the last thing he wants to do is hurt Dillon again. But Dillon is determined to take control and show Jack’s heart the way back home.

Jack Dresden is broken, but he’s home and home is supposed to heal everything, even if things are possibly broken there. Jack doesn’t believe that his best friend and the one man he truly loves will ever forgive him especially since they parted on bad terms when Jack left.

Dillon doesn’t know that Jack loves him as more than a friend, but he loves Jack, and is willing to stand by and with him through everything as Jack heals.

Now, if only those two would actually talk!  They don’t and things go a bit sideways before we can get to our happily ever after. I think that’s to be expected when you’re dealing with two equally strong and equally stubborn heroes. That’s one of the things that is so great about two men falling in love, they’re so alike and yet different enough to be just what the other needs to be complete, to be whole again. Dillon is that for Jack, and Jack is and always has been the man to stand up for Dillon.

I really rooted for these characters, I hurt right along with them. I also absolutely adored Jack’s mom, she’s everything that Jack needs and is a great other side of the coin from his father who at one point I really hated.

I will be watching this author and this series, it had great characters that had a healthy dose of real emotions and I felt those emotions so I can highly recommend this story because it did make me feel and love and I was happy in the end.
