When State Trooper Travis Kinslow is injured right before Thanksgiving, the only positive is that for once he won’t be working during the holidays. Since he has no family, Travis was absorbed into his best friend, Joe’s, and he considers them as good as his own. Everyone except Joe’s brother Noah. Travis has been in love with the younger man for much of his life, but he’s always kept his distance.
As an ER nurse, Noah is a caretaker by nature. When his brother’s best friend is hurt, he’s happy to help Travis while he heals. He’s only ever allowed himself to think of Travis as the next best thing to an older brother, but by the light of the Christmas tree, Noah finally sees Travis’s true feelings. And in that moment, everything changes.
When faced with opposition and a Christmas nothing like they imagined, will their hopes for the future be enough to carry them through?
I was immediately intrigued by the blurb for this book, not to mention this sweet and cuddly cover. Unrequited love stories are fabulous… especially when it ends in an HEA.
The author created a story about a man, Travis, who experienced so much bad in his life and also, so much good. His best friend’s family pretty much take Travis in at the age of ten and through his life he’s considered himself a part of the Mastriano family. Of course with that he has also fallen in love with his BF’s little brother…. And he’s loved him for many many MANY years!
I loved how the story started. Travis in an accident and Joe (his Best friend’s) mom sitting there with him. I loved how the author just BAM put you right into the thick of it. Watching it evolve from there was beyond beautiful and it tugged at my heart often.
Now, there was a little sadness, ever so short but what’s a story without some drama? Though I was a little miffed by it I was also left no choice but to accept it and too often in our real lives that is something we deal with.
This is absolutely a holiday story in the best sense of the word (s). I never read this author before today and I must say, without a doubt, I will be reading more from this talented writer.
