Will the naysayers drive Colin and Jordan apart, or will the two make their way together in this small town?
Colin Baker owns a bookstore and he’s back in Cedarwood with his son. He’s looking for a new start after a bad breakup, but he never expected that start to include his old crush, Officer Jordan Hargrove. Jordan hasn’t come out, but if he can score with Colin, then he’s all in. He’s dreamed of hot nights with the quiet man.
After a speeding ticket and some hurt feelings, sparks fly between the bookstore owner and the police officer, but Cedarwood is a small town with small-town values, and a gay couple isn’t what the town expects. Colin’s created a support group for single gay fathers and he feels he’s making some difference in Cedarwood. Some folks are fine with these two men reconnecting, but others aren’t.
Will their love survive or will it fall apart before they get started?
Megan Slayer writes a compelling story of a somewhat second chance story in her book Home to Cedarwood. Although, the story could also be considered somewhat of an enemies to lovers story as well. I loved that this story was more in depth than just two men coming together years later after graduating from High school.
Colin Baker's character was one that I assume many can relate too. He had come out during his high school years and was faced with bullies because he was gay. He then decides to leave his closed-minded small town. Years later, and a lot more grown, he comes back to his hometown; this time leaving a bad relationship with his son. It’s sad although this is just words written on paper, there are still towns such as Cedarwoods! I was definitely more than upset when all the hatred and bullying was thrown on his seven-year-old son!
Then, we have the character of Jordan Hargrove! The all-star baseball player back in high school. The assumedly straight ball player that instead of doing what he knew was right, turned around and became the one who bullied and made Colin’s teenage years harder. Now with Colin back, all Jordan wants is a chance to say he was sorry. However, that is not the only thing he wants to confess to Colin, but he is a cop now and is scared what will happen once the truth of his sexuality is revealed.
With Colin and his son being harassed daily and Jordan knowing what he really wants with Colin, fears having his life like Colin’s.
This is a remarkable story of two lost and confused men that realize they share more than they ever truly thought they would.
