Publisher's Summary

Callum

A gay guy walks into a straight bar and notices the hottest man he’s ever seen...

Why am I not surprised my life sounds like the beginning of a bad joke? First, my ex cheated on me, and I went running to Havenwood and the mom I have a complicated relationship with. Then, there’s Knox, the gorgeous lumberjack I don’t stand a chance with. To top it off, he’s more than just a pretty face, and I start to fall for him. Knox is kind, funny, honorable, quickly becoming my best friend, and unfortunately, straight with a capital S.

Knox

My life has taken a few unexpected turns lately. First, the new guy in town, Callum, has me strangely confused. Then my son, Logan, comes to live with me. He connects with Callum instantly, and I do too. Before we know it, he’s become a daily fixture in our lives, making us laugh, calling me his lumberjack and making this foreign warmth spread inside me.

It doesn’t matter that I’ve never been with a guy before - one kiss from Cal, and it’s clear I’m bi. He turns me upside down. With every laugh, every conversation, every touch and exploration, I fall harder. Sneaking around isn’t ideal, but there’s a lot for us to consider. All I know is I need him. Life has a funny way of throwing a wrench into your plans, though, and things become a mess. But then I’m reminded that while nothing in life is guaranteed, not even love, what Callum and I have built is worth fighting for.

Sweet

Sweet, angst-free, mixed-family love story. Love the characters and the friendships. Slow-burn. Normal life stuff isn't my usual thing, but I enjoyed it. Awesome for angst-free daydream escapism.

Best of the Series!

I would give this more than 5 stars if I could. I really enjoyed delving into Knox and Callum's world. Although this book had a lot less of the friends aspect than the others in the series, I enjoyed how the relationship developed between Callum and his Mom and Callum and Logan.

Best Family Dynamic? Absolutely!

I have read and listened to this book many times. Why? Because this book is the *friggin* best!! I love the family dynamic the most and the love between Knox and Callum is just to die for.
The narrator is also really great 👍! Well done.

I’m not crying... you are!

Finally!!! A narrator that knows how to talk and tell a story! The story was really good, too! First one I’ve read that balanced the intricate life of a divorced LGBTQ+ parent!

Not for me

I really tried to finish the book but had to quit about 1/2 way thru. The story was fine, not really what I like in M/M romance, but a lot of people do. I prefer more substance to the story and the men. Maybe it was the narrator. He put a soft touch to both MC's voices and it just didn't match what I imagined when I read the book. Anyway, couldn't stand it anymore.

My Favorite!

I have listened to this book 6 times now, and it never gets old. The story is just the best. Not overdone in areas that typically are, and character development that seems realistic. Thanks for this one. I’m sure I will read it many more times than this past one lol

Knox was. good and easy too!

A charming romance where love blooms, families grow strong together, and all is right in the end.
I liked that children are featured in this tale showing
how healing , and assuring parental love is and can be.
Although everything is just too perfect, and everyone's agreeable and understanding the characters are engaging enough so one doesn't mind.
Ahh if all things could go so well!

Love in small town Virginia

Nice romamce with somewhat predictable story line. But well written and very well narrated. Kale Williams has a really sexy, believable voice with just enough changes for all the characters. He even does the women's voices well.
