When Derek Jackson is hired to renovate the LGBT bookstore that’s also Owen Hensley’s home, opposites attract. Derek is a big burly blue-collar guy, about ten years older than slight, sweet, and bookish Owen. As they spend time together, it becomes clear that each handsome outside leads to a beautiful interior. Far from the shy twink he appears, Owen has a rock-solid foundation that helped him put himself through college and start his own business. Behind Derek’s strong façade waits a tender heart that’s been battered by a rough family past—something Owen understands. After Owen’s runaway nephew lands on his doorstep, it throws a wrench in their plans. Derek can’t ask Owen to choose, but he doesn’t think he can take second place with his lover the way he always has with his family. Can they find a way to keep their romance standing?

Derek had worked construction with his best friend since the beginning. The company might bear his best friend’s name, but Derek had invested more than just time, sweat and energy into it, his heart was there too. Taking on a renovation project for Owen Hensely started as routine for Derek, but the two polar opposite men hit it off immediately. Both Owen and Derek have complicated pasts, but as their attraction deepens they’re both willing to face their respective demons if it means their future together can be bright.

I really enjoyed this slow-paced romance story. I found both Owen and Derek to be drawn as complex, deep characters with a rich history and plenty of normal baggage in their pasts. With a strong cast of vibrant secondary character this book felt layered and quite rich to me. There’s plenty of conflict between Derek and his parents, as well as Owen’s lingering trauma from his abusive father. While there’s plenty of family drama, I was pleased this really left things open for Owen and Derek’s growing relationship to be a strong, positive light that really made the romance bloom in this story.

Filled with vibrant and wonderful characters, oodles of family drama and a cheerful, slow-building and loving romance this is a lovely story that I really enjoyed. I found the pace very slightly too slow for my personal liking, but I can’t really fault the author for wanting to take their time introducing the reader to all the complexities of Owen and Derek’s lives and showing the two men slowly merging their single lives into a joint relationship. It’s clear from the outset that the two men are attracted and watching that initial surge grow into something deep and lasting is just lovely. While there are a few erotic sex scenes I feel it’s very clear that the romance between Derek and Owen, and particularly the integration of their lives and friendships was central to the story. The sex is explicit, but not the main thrust of the story and I was perfectly comfortable with that.

With an interesting and well-drawn plot, loads of lovely characters and a delicious romance, I feel this is a great story that has pretty much everything I need from a good read. Recommended.
