Author Bio:
Jess Buffett was born and raised in New South Wales, Australia. She is a mum of two, married to her high school sweetheart. 

Jess is a hopeless romantic who is a huge fan of M/M and M/F romance with a happy ending—anything with hunky men in all their glory, whether they be Shifters, Vampires, Cowboys, or the boy next door. 

A caffeine addict who shamefully can’t make a decent cup of coffee to save her life, Jess believes in soul mates, happily ever afters, and in love at first sight, but that sometimes people need a second or a third for the brain to catch up.

After recovering from a shooting that took the lives of his best friends, Seth Hall returns to his hometown for the first time in eleven years with his two children in tow. Intent on setting up a happy, stable life for them, he vows not to allow his past to intervene with their future. That is until Jared, the boy who had broken his heart all those years ago, returns to his life a full grown man who knows exactly what he wants...Seth.

Jared Stewart thought he had lost his only chance to be with Seth after a series of misunderstandings and mistakes. When Seth finally comes home and back into Jared’s life, Jared vows to do anything it takes to keep him there. However, while Jared and Seth grow closer, they discover that not everyone is so happy for them.

Will they be finally able to make a life for themselves together? Or will they be torn apart again, by people they thought they could trust?

Straightening his back, he met Jared's gaze.
"Fine. Let's take a seat and get this over with, shall we?"
"Is that the way you talk to all of your clients? Cause I have to say, I'm surprised you get much business then," drawled Jared.
Ignoring the comment, Seth led them to one of the booths. He cast a glance towards the kitchen, but Sal seemed to be preoccupied. Maybe telling the man to just ‘go for it’ hadn’t been a smart move. Something told him things were going to cost more than he thought.
Taking a seat opposite one another on the old scuffed booth with weathered red leather seating, that he absently noted to himself had to be added to the ever growing list of things that needed replacing, Seth launched straight into professional mode. He needed details to come up with something that the future bride wanted and that’s all he was focused on. At no time did he notice how good Jared looked, or how muscular he had gotten. Seth hadn’t even taken note of Jared’s soft pink lips or his large firm hands. 
Not at all.

Tracy's Review: 
4 stars

**This book was provided to me by the author/publisher via Pride Promotions in exchange for an honest review**

Seth returns home after leaving for college 11 years earlier. He returns after he is shot and his friends are killed. He comes back home to open a bakery and raise his kids.

Jared returned home after college to help his dad run the family law firm. He has regretted the day he didn't have the guts to tell his best friend, Seth how he really felt about him. Now that Seth has come home they have a second chance, but not everyone is pleased about their new relationship.

This was a good book, but I felt it moved too fast. I know these guys had been best friends for years, but they hadn't seen each other in 11 years. I think I would have loved the book more if the relationship between Seth and Jared would have progressed a little slower.

I loved the storyline and the plot. The author gave us romance with some suspense. The characters had good chemistry. The book was sexy and left me wanting more of them. This is my first book by this author, but I will be checking out her other works. I really enjoyed this book.
