Love can grow in even the harshest conditions.
Life has been a struggle for Lachlan Buttar ever since his mother passed away and left him unprepared to take care of himself. He’s gone from homeless to staying with a local minister, but it soon becomes clear he will be better off, and safer, on his own. Fortunately Foster and Javi agree to take Lachlan in and offer him a real home on their dairy farm.
It’s there that Lachlan meets another of the workers, local farmer Abe Armitage. Though the attraction between them is instant, Abe refuses to act on it until Lachlan returns his interest. By then, strong feelings have taken root, and a passionate romance quickly blossoms. But both men carry baggage that could crush any chance of happiness together, particularly since Lachlan witnessed a crime, and there are those who will do anything to make sure he cannot reveal what he’s seen.
When this book opens we know Lachlan (one of the MC's) is very much down on his luck. His feet are sore and bleeding, it's pouring rain, he's starving, and homeless. My heart ached as bad as his feet. Until the people, you come to love easily rescue him. They feed him, listen to him, make him feel safe, and most importantly give him hope.
Abe is the other MC and I am sure he was in the first book as he is known by the family well. He's a hand on the farm and has home issues. But he is drawn to Lachlan. He finds him sweet, innocent, beautiful, and way too young. Lachlan is seventeen when the book opens but shortly in he turns eighteen. Making this book a New Adult. Life isn't new to Lachlan or Abe but love is and that's what these two find in each other.
Of course, there's secrets and mysteries and justice that needs to be made. So following Lachlan, Abe, Foster, Javi, Harriet, and Grandma Katie, we see that strength isn't just in numbers it's in loyalty, love, and trust.
This book is like a hug to your soul. There is some nail-biting and frustration with situations but it always comes back to home. Yes, home. When Lachlan is Abe's home and vice versa. But when you put this ensemble together it's just perfection. Fabulous story!
