Between his time in the Marines and the years he’s spent working at Hamilton Security, there’s not much that takes Greg Wright by surprise anymore. That is until he gets assigned to guard a promising new candidate in the upcoming election; a man from Greg’s past and the one person he’d hoped to never see again.
Christopher Brooks has made a name for himself as an honest, hardworking, and fair man. As a candidate in the election for Governor of Illinois, his positive views on minority rights, especially those in the LGBTQ community have gained him considerable support as well as the attention of some of the more radical groups. When he begins receiving threats, warning him to drop out of the race, he concedes to the need for a bodyguard. That is, until he comes face to face with the man hired to protect him. The only person he’d ever given his heart to and the same man who shattered it.
Forced to spend nearly every minute together, the two men must find a way to get along and put their past hurts aside, but as the election heats up, so do things between the two men. Will they be able to put their past differences aside in order to keep Christopher safe and will they finally be able to find a peaceful resolution?
They were young, both eighteen, one from a warm family and one severely neglected, friends for life, who spent every free minute together, until something happened between them, something devastating and both have their own version of it.
Greg works at Hamilton Security, a company and the best of the best in human protection.
Greg’s new case will be guarding a political candidate who is running for governor.
Entering Christopher Brooks' office, Greg can’t believe his eyes. The man who shattered his heart many years ago is the same man he has to protect.
Christopher needs protection 24/7 and before him stands the man who broke his heart but never really left it.
Throughout this journey we get to know the devastating truth about what happened, alternating between Greg and Christopher’s point of view. Believe me when I say it’s heart wrenching, one box of tissues is not enough. My heart hurt for them.
We are also witness to the approaching danger. Greg alone isn’t enough to hold the threat back, he needs his team to stand with him.
A more than wonderful story, widely told, it’s about second chances, hurt and confusion, trust, distrust, broken hearts, lost hearts, mending hearts, hate, and above all, love. I relished in the warmth and emotions of this story’s content.
Their journey is written in the most enthralling way you can imagine, the hurt and love was all deeply tangible. The content was convincingly woven into this story, I couldn’t put it down until I saw ‘The End’
Overall it was a deep moving story with wonderfully developed characters.
These two beautiful loving souls, with big hearts overflowing with love will stay with you for a long long time, I couldn’t let them go.
We can follow them from where they were young till twenty years later, two souls always meant to be together.
