Only love can heal an impossibly broken heart
There’d forever been a thread running through Trevor Estes’s life—his son, Riley, strong and constant like a heartbeat. But when Riley is killed in combat, everything in Trevor’s life unravels into a mess he doesn’t know how to mourn.
Then Jesse Byrne, Riley’s friend and platoon mate, arrives on Trevor’s doorstep with a box of Riley’s things. Jesse’s all-too-familiar grief provides an unlikely source of comfort for Trevor: knowing he’s not alone is exactly what he needs.
Trevor never imagined he’d find someone who fills his heart with hope again. As the pair celebrate Riley’s memory, their unique bond deepens into something irreplaceable—and something neither man can live without.
But diving into a relationship can’t be so simple. Being together means Trevor risking the last link he has to his son…leaving Jesse to wonder if he’ll ever be enough, or if Trevor will always be haunted by the past.
How do you go on when your heart is broken seemingly beyond repair? After the death of his son, Riley who is killed in combat this is a question Trevor Estes must find an answer to.
Riley and Trevor were so close, Riley was the sun and moon in his father’s world. When Trevor says goodbye to his son before he leaves for deployment, he never imagined it would be forever.
When Jesse Byrne, Riley’s best friend and bunkmate shows up at Trevor’s door with a box of Riley’s things...the two connect. Neither is looking for more than someone to celebrate Riley’s life with, someone to understand their loss. The more time they spend together, the more their feelings begin to change, to grow. They are each dealing with loss and haunted by the past, but together they begin to heal.
This book was recommended to me by an author who loved it. I’m so glad I took a chance on a new to me author with a book that felt very heavy. This story hurts at times, but the beauty, the new beginning that shines through is worth the tears. At times I’d go from crying sad tears to tears of joy as I watched these men learn to live again. All the things that make them different pale in comparison to all the things that make them the same. A truly brutally beautiful book that I hope everyone reads.
