Widower John McConnell gets along fine raising his daughter on Georgia's Tybee Island, though he wouldn't exactly say he's happy. Haunted by the memory of his dead wife, John hasn't considered dating again until he meets Bryan Simmons in the park. It isn't long before John realizes that what he feels for Bryan could be something real, but how will he know he's ready to move on?
As John soon discovers, Bryan carries some heavy emotional baggage of his own. With John's help, Bryan starts to put his demons to rest, and together they lay the foundation for a relationship. It looks like they might finally leave their tragedies behind them—until John takes a misstep that could turn a magical night together into their last.
This is a beautiful story of a man journey trough the greif of his wife's death to being ready to fall in love again. This is really Johns story and is told from his perspective. I really like that the friendship and budding relationship is taken slowly. Bryan's story was sad and tragic but ment he could understand Johns feelings. At no time was the story rushed and this made it all the more believable and beautiful, when they got together it was hot to trot and worth the wait. If you like reading story about the human condition this is the book for you. It is gentle and stunning and you won't regret the journey.
