Content

When Daniel Seaton inadvertently trespasses on Tyler Edward's land, things almost go very, very wrong. 
It's bad enough that Dan's a runaway, but when Tyler nearly shoots him on sight, Dan knows he's in trouble.
Tyler's got a lot of years under his belt, and his past doesn't let him accept strangers easily.
Dan's situation is dire enough that Tyler takes him home, at least for a little while, and that turns out to be a good decision when Dan decides to stay on and help out with the chores.
Tyler might be learning to trust, and Dan might be settling in to a new life, but things are not always what they seem.
Between interfering friends, injuries, and their attraction to each other, Tyler and Dan have plenty of troubles.
More trouble turns up in the form of Tyler's past, which catches up to them with a vengeance, and they decide to start a new life together, one that requires them to leave everything behind.
Can they overcome what lies in the past to have a future with each other?

  •     Nice story - I liked that the younger guy was not a push over and had ideas and problem solving skills of his own and wasn't just a follower - all around enjoyable read
  •     Dan is a young man on the run, scared, taken advantage of, and hungry.Tyler is a man of mystery, a hermit in the woods, in the run himself, isolating himself.When Dan chances on his property, in search of something to eat and a safe place to rest his weary feet, this chance meeting changes both of their lives.I loved how Ms. Davitt built these characters. Both men are such wounded men, and don't realize they share more in common that that which differentiates them. Daniel at first seems like a twink, a throwaway. And Tyler a brutish bear of a man who deserves to be alone. As they open to each other, the care that develops is amazing. That Ms. Davitt took the time to build them as people and worthy of our attention and care is remarkable.The backstory on Tyler is wonderful, but I would have loved this book even without the mystery being built as to his past.This book captured me, and left me hungry for more. Read it ASAP!Tom
  •     This is my second time reading this book and I loved it even more than the first time it was a very sweet story if you can see how hard it is for Taylor to let someone in his life
  •     I could not put this down. Jane Davitt had me hooked on page 1, and kept me hooked with the clever banter between Dan and Tyler, and the occasional sex. It's not a happily ever after ending, but it's an appropriate ending. Would sure like to read a sequel about these two.
  •     This was a surprising read. It was an emotional, intense and a bit angsty but definitely the type of read that grabs your attention and holds it.
  •     When women began writing M/M romance novels, I was sure it did not bode well.I must admit, there are some women writers now that are pretty good.
  •     The basic plot of this story is a variation on one that's been done often before (after all there are only just so many ways boy meets boy), so it could have been wall-to-wall...
  •     I loved this story. I loved that each mc was damaged in some way. I wanted to know right away the background that lead to their behavior and actions and couldn't read fast enough...
  •     After nearly shooting Dan, a young man running from home, Tyler provides him with temporary shelter. Then Tyler is injured and it provides them with the excuse they need for Dan to stick around a bit longer.Tyler has had a dangerous past and although honest with Dan, fears Dan will be afraid of the man who has taken him in. It is so interesting to see Tyler's behaviour differ so much from how he sees himself. At least where Dan is concerned, he is compassionate, understanding and caring.Dan is young and inexperienced, particularly when compared to Tyler. However Dan's actions reflect a man who has strength and is not afraid to voice his feelings. He sees Tyler's heart.A slow gentle build of a relationship between the two men occurs as they take one day at a time. But Tyler's past rears its head and threatens to end their relationship before it has really begun. There is some drama as Dan flees but the focus is on the emotional drawing together of Dan and Tyler. The ending is not total fairy tale, rather a nice HFN.4.5 stars
  •     have just finished second part to this story. you've read the other reviews, like i did with the synopsis of this.
  •     An enjoyable contemporary romance (with some mystery elements) about Dan, a runaway who's wandering around in the woods and stops to eat some raspberries, and finds out that he's...
  •     I was getting tired of downloading books that I finished in half an hour, so I checked the print version, and it's 208 pages; that already is a plus. And it was $2.12, so it felt like a no risk. This book is definitely a cut above many of the other m/m romances out there, the writing was so much better it took it to another level. I liked the characters, reticent Tyler and young (but not too young!) Dan, both of them, in their own way, running away from intolerable situations. They felt true to themselves and I enjoyed their interactions. Yes, Dan was vulnerable, but so was Tyler, and in the end they made each other stronger. And it had one of the most romantic last lines I've read in a long time, which I won't spoil here, but it's worth getting to. i was thinking as I wrote the tags, that this is a genuine romance. Yes it has sexual elements, but it's totally character driven and really romantic and not so many m/m books are. I rate this a keeper and will reread it.
  •     I've liked several of this author's books. The reviews and ratings were good, mostly. The setup sounded good; military man in hiding, young man stumbles into his life. It never got past the pervert mood for me. Dan's character was okay. He was young, still kind of stupid and impetuous and ruled by hormones. Some of the scenes still seemed like he was 16, but I could roll with it, since he was a small-town farm boy.Tyler was not characterized well, for me. His physical description and dialogue made him seem more like a guy in his 40's, not 34. He constantly called Dan kid and boy, then starts having sex with him. Their first encounter felt creepy. Besides that, there was the constant back and forth, anger and arguing, then calm, then Tyler leading Dan on, then pushing him away. It continued throughout the story and was grating on my nerves. His past and PTSD or whatever didn't excuse it. Just not pleasant to read and the book never seemed to have a real purpose or ending. I guess there's a sequel but don't think I'll read it.
  •     This book was a pleasant surprise. It wasn't what I expected but in a good way.I really enjoyed the set up & despite its implausibility, happily went along for the ride wherever Jane took me. I liked that it was romantic without being saccharine. There was affection without the snookum-sweetums gag-inducing nick names. There was hot sex without it being too porn-y. A new twist on the silent cowboy motif without a burning barn in sight. This was a refreshingly sweet story in a not-predictable package. For my 5th book of the weekend, it was nice not to be bored by the same ol', same ol'. Would recommend this book be given a chance.Originally posted on Goodreads.com
