4 Stars

A sweet, fun read featuring a super hot firefighter and a computer geek – yes please! And that’s exactly what Andrew Grey delivers with this book. It’s a quick read but it will definitely leave you with a smile on your face. Stone and Dash are very likeable guys and so easy to root for. They have great chemistry and you can feel the genuine love that builds between them.

I enjoyed their story, again it’s a quick one, but there’s a lot going on here! These two meet in dramatic circumstances, Dash’s house is on fire, he barely escapes and Stone is a firefighter on scene who rescue’s his dog and with nowhere to go Stone offers his spare room to Dash as a safe place to stay. These two easily become friends with definite attraction and more brewing but when Dash’s house fire investigation comes back arson both men have to question what really happened.

I definitely liked this book, it was an easy afternoon type read that entertained me from start to finish. I loved the relationship that develops between them and how natural it felt and how they opened up to each other. They both have moments of doubt and questioning their situation but by opening up they learn to trust each other. Overall, it’s a feel good book and a great addition to this series.


“I don’t know. There’s a shed out behind the house. Maybe I can stay in there for the night and figure things out in the morning.” He tried not to think of the fact that he had no family and now he had no place to live and was going to try to stay in the shed. It was the only idea he had, and at least he’d be out of the rain. “Thank you for coming and for saving Taffy.” That was what was truly important. Stuff he could replace, but the one friend he knew he could count on was the only irreplaceable thing in the house. He stepped down out of the ambulance, grateful they’d let him keep the blanket, and headed around the side of the burned-out shell of a house.

The scent of char and scorch along with the dampness from the rain hung in the air. He hurried to try to keep dry. Dash heard the firefighters packing up as he reached for the door of the shed. Without looking back, he pulled it open and stepped inside. It was mostly empty, with a few folding chairs and one of those old beach lounges with wide woven straps. He set that up and then spread the blanket over it before stretching out, tugging the blanket over himself like a cocoon. At least he was dry for the time being. That he could be grateful for at least.

“Hello,” a deep voice called from outside. “Are you in there?”

Dash thought of not answering and just closing his eyes, willing this nightmare to be over and all of this to just go away. “Yes,” he answered softly before the door opened. The firefighter from earlier, Stone, stood there, shadowed from behind in the light from the trucks.

“You’re really going to stay here?” he asked.

Dash shrugged. “I don’t have much choice. The stupid insurance company isn’t going to help, and I can’t afford a hotel right now. Besides, it’s that big festival in town. All the hotels have been booked for months, and there’s nothing that isn’t going to cost a fortune.”

Stone came inside, and Dash could see some of his features. “Then you can come home with me for the night. I have a sofa that you can use. It will be more comfortable than this loungie thing, and I can try to find you something to wear.”

Dash was tempted to say no, thank you, but his lounge, which had seen many better days, decided to give up the ghost right then and dumped him onto the floor in a heap. He rolled and bashed his hand against the floor. He stayed still until he could figure out how to get up without hitting anything else.

Title: The Resident’s Choice

Genre: M/M Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Self Published
Release Date: Feb 7 2023
Edition/Formats Available In: eBook & Print
Pediatric residency means long hours, constant pressure, and, occasionally, a patient and her father stealing your heart.

Second-year pediatric resident Marty Beyers loves his job and using all his skills to care for the children in the wards. He figures everything he’s seen in his position at Harbor Medical Center has made him ready for anything, but when he meets gorgeous Dennis and his daughter Stephie, he’s finally encountered something he isn’t prepared for: losing his heart to a patient’s father.
Dennis gave up everything to raise his sister’s daughter after her death, especially after Stephie fell ill. He has a lot of high hopes, mostly that he’ll get answers to Stephie’s mysterious health issues, and in Marty he finds a doctor who listens, really seems to care, and, to top that, is someone he could seriously fall for.
But hospitals have rules about doctors and their patients. To make things worse, Stephie’s illness seems reluctant to reveal any answers to their questions. When her specialists can’t unravel the mystery, Marty refuses to give up, but his diligence triggers suspicions that could pull Marty and Dennis and their potential new family apart forever.

Jenn Review
3.5 – 4 Stars
This was a fun, sweet and heartwarming novella, if you’re in the mood for a quick read to make your heart happy, this is definitely one to grab. I’m a really big fan of Andrew Grey and how much heart he can pour into his books and he delivers again with Marty, Dennis and sweet little Stephie.
Marty is a pediatric resident who meets single father Dennis while treating his daughter in the hospital and he’s all about caring for his patients and doing what his best for them but there is no denying that the good looking dad catches his attention too. While it’s clear that’s an attraction between them, it’s a difficult time to try to start a new relationship for both men. Dennis is focused on caring for Stephie and getting to the bottom of her medical issues while continuing to work and provide for them both. Marty is a resident doctor who works long hours with very minimal time to himself. The true test is how deep these new feelings actually go for both Marty and Dennis.
This was a very quick read and I think Andrew Grey does a great job fitting a lot of emotion in a short book I really did want more. I really liked Dennis and Marty a lot and I enjoyed seeing their relationship start and develop, I really would have liked to see more development and growth. It’s definitely a sweet book and I really enjoyed it, a great addition to this series and I loved getting to see Garth and Rory again too!

Release Blitz: BACK TO CENTER (Mohegan U Hockey #2) by Ryan Taylor & Joshua Harwood


Mohegan U Hockey #2

by Ryan Taylor & Joshua Harwood

Release Blitz

Release Date: February 1, 2023

Cover Design:

Cate Ashwood Designs


CJC Photography

Model: Aaron Anderson

Genre: M/M Sports Romance

Trope: Friends to lovers, coach/player, single dad, unexpected love, redemption, depression, physical/emotional abuse by parents, HEA



There are ways to get ahead in college hockey, but having a meltdown, trying to get rid of your coach, and stalking his boyfriend isn’t one of them. Is it really a surprise that I wound up in a hospital facing my demons instead of getting ready to play for the pros and taking care of my baby? I needed the world’s biggest redo, but the probability of a second chance was about the same as…

Jack Rogan walking through the door. But there he was! Jack was one of my coaches, and I was pretty sure he was straight. His easy laugh and sympathetic ear put a smile on my face. He made me believe I could turn my life around. But as much as I liked him, I knew I had to put my fantasies aside. With obligations to meet and amends to make, I didn’t have time to obsess about a guy who was out of my reach.

So why did I say yes when he offered me a place to stay while I got on my feet?


I was done with relationships. A fractured heart had made sure my walls were high, and my shields were strong. There wasn’t a man I couldn’t resist—until Eckie.

After driving everyone away in an avalanche of self-destruction, he was getting much needed help, and I wondered if I should go see him. A single visit turned into the best part of every day, and I was hooked. When I was with Eckie, the world made sense again. There were only two years separating us, but since I was one of his coaches, spending time together was dangerous. If we kept it up, who knew what I might do?

Maybe something brilliant, like asking him to stay with me when he left the hospital. I knew it was risky, and I told myself I was only being a friend. But the truth was, I liked feeling things again.

Eckie was seeking redemption; Jack was trying to do the right thing. Neither planned on anything beyond friendship. Will following their hearts leave them worse than before, or will they find what they’ve needed all along?

Back to Center is a story of redemption and the unexpected love a man finds in a friend he never knew he’d have. It also includes exciting hockey, a coach/player dynamic, great communication, unquenchable longing giving way to irrepressible heat, an adorable baby, and a perfect HEA.

Content warnings for depression and physical/emotional abuse by parents. The abuse happened in the past, but knowing about it may be difficult for some.

Mal’s first priority is giving his six-year-old son the best Christmas ever, a goal made trickier by a recent move to New England after losing his job. As a single dad, he’s not looking for romance—especially not with a blond California boy ten years his junior.

After being ridiculed at the family business, Luca sets out to prove himself by opening an eco-friendly gift-wrapping store in a small town with a hard-on for Christmas that’s about as far from LA as he can get. Out of his comfort zone in snowy Maine, love is the last thing on his mind.

But the magic of the season has other ideas. As Mal and Luca collide on wintery streets, will they let their first Christmas in Lighthouse Bay lead to happily ever after?

Content warning: stillbirth. Although it took place off-page and in the past, it is discussed on-page.

Jenn Review

4 Stars

This is a really sweet read to get you in the holiday spirit! I really enjoyed Mal and Luca and their story and of course little Otis just adds a sprinkle of sweetness and joy. It’s the kind of story that just makes your heart happy and embraces that holiday magic. It really felt like feel-good holiday movie.

Mal and Luca are two men who’ve been through quite a bit and are trying to make a new(ish) start in Lighthouse Bay. They are both determined to be successful and are working hard to make the holiday season special. They never expected to meet each other or the connection that happens right from the start, but it’s clearly something special. It’s really a sweet journey of love and healing, both of them needing to move forward after some painful past experiences and they find they can do it together.

I really enjoyed this book, it’s entertaining and endearing and these characters are so easy to love. It’s easy to feel the genuine love that develops between Mal and Luca and it’s really heartwarming. I’m definitely curious about Donovan and am hoping to get his story too, plus I’d love to see more of Mal and Luca! This is definitely a book to pick up to get the holiday feels!


Mal slowed at the bottom of a driveway and nodded at the house. “This is me.”

“I was wondering who lived here,” Luca said, taking in the house’s boxy structure.

“Why? Because it’s hideous?”

That startled a laugh out of Luca. “Well . . . yes. It doesn’t match the rest of the houses.” The area just west of Christmas Lane housed Lighthouse Bay’s historic homes, but this modern construction was decidedly not historic. Luca had passed it a couple of times on his evening gift deliveries and wondered what the owner had been thinking. “Why’d you buy it if you don’t like it?”

“I’m not. I’m leasing.”

Even so, Mal had gone all out with the decorations. Icicle lights hanging from the roof, flashing multicolored lights framed around each window, static white lights around a nine-foot-tall pine tree, and a lit-up reindeer family. He even had some sort of spotlights buried somewhere in the yard that swirled red and green snowflakes on the house in an unidentifiable pattern.

“Which is probably another reason I haven’t unpacked,” Mal continued. “I hate this place.”

“Why lease it, then?”

Mal blew out a breath that ghosted the air in front of him. “The short version is that I was in a rush.”

“And the long version?”

“The long version is something I’ll have to give you another time.”

Luca glanced at Otis. “I think he’s asleep.”

“Bet he gets a second wind as soon as I walk in the door.” Mal’s voice was a disgruntled grumble that Luca shouldn’t have found as charming as he did. “Thanks for walking us home.”

“Thanks for letting me. I like talking to you.”

Mal’s smile went lopsided. “I like talking to you too. Still want to do it again sometime? I promise not to feed you ice cream while it’s below freezing outside. Real food only. Scout’s honor.”

Luca’s armpits went damp despite the winter weather, and butterflies took flight in his belly. He dug his toe into the sidewalk. “You must really want to date me if you’ve asked me out twice in one week.”

“Or I just want an adult to talk to for once,” Mal said, a teasing tilt to his smile.

Luca stuck his tongue in his cheek and backed down the driveway, keeping his gaze on Mal’s. “Or maybe you like me.”

“Damn. And here I thought I wasn’t being obvious at all.”

The butterflies floated into Luca’s throat. “Text me?”

“I will.” The darkness enveloped Mal as he moved away from the sidewalk and into the shadow of the house, but Luca could still see the quirk to his lips. “Good night, Luca.”

“Night, Mal.”

Luca watched Mal and Otis head inside, waved at Mal through the glass-fronted door, then turned toward his own home only a couple blocks away, an extra bounce to his steps.

Dr. Jackson Burnside is an orthopedic surgeon who made his own way. Always different, he got out of Natchez before his family could throw him out, but still wishes things could be reconciled. He’s built a successful practice and a sound reputation in Carlisle. When he’s called to the hospital for a consultation, the last person he expects to meet is Wes.

Wes Fortier had fewer opportunities than Jackson, but he’s worked hard and has a good job that brought him to Carlisle. A work injury lands him in the ER, where he crosses paths again with Jackson, who may be the silver lining he has been praying for in a life filled with gray.

Jackson’s and Wes’s renewed friendship deepens to attraction and possibly unspoken love. Both Wes and Jackson find something they’ve been missing. Just when they begin to lay the foundations of the kind of relationship they’ve both wished for, Jackson’s mother swoops into town with an olive branch for her son, but her hidden agenda could threaten everything.

Jenn Review
4 – 4.5 Stars
As with the other books in this series, A Doctor’s Wish delivers lots of feels in this sweet, touching read! I loved that this story had a bit of friends to lovers and second chance. Jackson and Wes were friends as kids but lost touch after Jackson left the small town they grew up in when he came out. Jackson has made a great life for himself as a doctor, and that’s how he comes face to face with Wes again when is injured on the job. These two easily reconnect and finally get the chance to explore the what-ifs.
You can feel the genuine friendship between immediately, so it only feels natural for Jackson to offer help Wes while he recovers. Jackson offers his home to Wes since his apartment isn’t really safe for him alone. The arrangement allows the two to rebuild their friendship and also explore more. Because of Wes’ injuries they aren’t able to explore the physical attraction side, but does give them a chance to really see how deep their feelings really are for each other.
This is a quick read, but it has a lot of feeling. Both Jackson and Wes are great guys who have had to make their way through life pretty much on their own. They both so kind and have such wonderful hearts it is easy to fall for them. I loved how they supported each other, facing challenges together, including Jackson’s family. There are some good surprises in this read and I guarantee it will leave your heart happy, as it did mine. Great addition to a great series!


   “How are you feeling?” Jackson asked.

Wes opened his eyes, then closed them again as the sun shone in the windows. “Worse

than the time we decided to go riding, and I got thrown off the horse. This time it feels like he

stepped all over me.” He didn’t want to move in case the pain started up again. “How is my


“I was able to put it back together, and you’ll have some hardware in you for the rest of

your life, but other than that, it went well. I’m pleased. We have your leg wrapped so the  incisions can start to heal. Before you go home, we’ll put you in something more structured, but

you’re going to have to wear a boot that will go from your foot and above your knee for the

next few months.”

“And my arm?” Wes asked.

“That’s the issue. You’re going to need to stay off your foot, and you can’t use crutches. Is

there anyone who can take care of you?” Jackson asked, and Wes shrugged.

“Not someone who can take care of me for weeks. I just moved here a little while ago, and I

haven’t had a chance to meet a lot of people.” The truth was that even if he had been at home,

there weren’t folks he could ask. Yeah, he should be able to ask him mama—most people

could—but that wasn’t an option for Wes, there or here. “I’ll work something out.” What the

hell else was he going to do. “How much longer will I be here?”

“Another day or two. I need to make sure that there’s no infection and that all of my

handiwork stays in place. We’ll release you then.”

Wes remembered that smile. It was the same one from when they were kids. It was kind of

strange to see it on the adult version of Jackson, yet reassuring at the same time. Maybe there

were some things that didn’t change.

He thanked Jackson, who then left the room. Wes had a couple of days to figure shit out,

but right now he was too tired to really think too hard about it. He had to rest, and then maybe

after a nap he could make his head work enough so he could figure out what he could do next.

A Carlisle Deputies Troopers

Can a single dad with a criminal past find love with the cop who pulled him over?

When single dad Quinton Jackson gets stopped for speeding, he thinks he’s lost both his freedom and his infant son, who’s in the car he’s been chasing down the highway. Amazingly, State Trooper Wyatt Nelson not only believes him, he radios for help and reunites Quinton with baby Callum.

Wyatt should ticket Quinton, but something makes him look past Quinton’s record. Watching him with his child proves he made the right decision. Quinton is a loving, devoted father—and he’s handsome. Wyatt can’t help but take a personal interest.

For Quinton, getting temporary custody is a dream come true… or it would be, if working full-time and caring for an infant left time to sleep. As if that weren’t enough, Callum’s mother will do anything to get him back, including ruining Quinton’s life. Fortunately, Quinton has Wyatt for help, support, and as much romance as a single parent can schedule.

But when Wyatt’s duties as a cop conflict with Quinton’s quest for permanent custody, their situation becomes precarious. Can they trust each other, and the courts, to deliver justice and a happy ever after?

4 Stars
This was a fun, sweet read, I loved Wyatt and Quinton together! These two have an interesting meeting, Wyatt is a cop who ends up in a police chase, ultimately pulling Quinton over. It gets even more interesting when Quinton insists he was following a stolen car that had his infant son in it, and Wyatt believes him. From there these two develop a friendship that easily turns into more.
Wyatt and Quinton are two very different men and don’t seem at all like a match but they actually are great together. Quinton has made a lot of dumb mistakes in his life, but now that baby Callum is here, he would do anything for his son and is determined to give him a good childhood, one he didn’t have. He doesn’t care that it means giving up the party life or working hard, it’s all about Callum. He gets unlikely support from trooper Wyatt after the whole stolen car/kidnapping mess and the messy situation with Callum’s mother Jennifer. Wyatt wants to help people, especially kids and he sees how much Quinton really cares about his son and he’s determined to help him keep his son.
I really liked the connection between Quinton and Wyatt, it felt very genuine and natural. Both men have their issues and fears but they seem to be able to open up to each other and build a strong relationship. It was great to see Quinton embrace being a father and how much he loves his son. Wyatt also seems to fit right in with Callum as well and they become such a sweet little family.  There’s also a bit of mystery thrown in here too, as Wyatt gets an opportunity at work to solve his first real case, and help Quinton at the same time. Overall, a fun read I didn’t want to put down and it had just the perfect ending for them. I’m really looking forward to more in this series and really hope to see this group again too.


Quinton let the old, drab curtains fall back into place as Jennifer was put in the back of a police car. Why in the hell had he decided that sleeping with her would be a good idea? Heck, he was gay, and sure, he liked women, but not to sleep with. Well, he did get one good thing out of it, and that was the amazing bundle of warmth curled against him. Quinton rocked gently back and forth as he tried to soothe Callum into a deeper sleep.

He had made some bad decisions in his life, and getting involved with her was only the latest in a string of them. If there was something stupid to be done, chances were Quinton had done it at one time or another. It would be easy for him to blame it on his mother. His father had never been in the picture, and his mother had never been a paragon of virtue. She liked her men, and there had been a parade of them through their lives over the years. As he got older, Quinton figured he needed to make his own way, and he’d done that by taking whatever he needed. If that meant food from the grocery store or some cash grabbed out of a register while the clerk wasn’t looking, so be it. The other kids in school had decent clothes that weren’t falling apart at the seams, so why shouldn’t he?

A knock at the door pulled him out of his thoughts, and he opened it. Donald stood there, and Quinton let him back inside. “Jennifer is being taken into custody.”

Quinton nodded. He figured that. “What happens next?”

“Well, she’ll be arraigned, and she might be offered bail. If she gets out….”

“Will she get Callum back?” He held his son closer, rubbing his back lightly as he slept. Callum always slept well for him, and all it had taken was that first look into his son’s blue eyes for him to fall in love.

“It’s unlikely, given the nature of the charges.” Donald glanced around, and Quinton offered him a seat on his thrift-store sofa. Donald had already proven to be a straight shooter. Quinton liked that. At least he knew where he stood. “However, the courts will make the determination.”

“I want to keep my son. I wanted to get custody before but was told because of his age and the fact that I have a record and stuff that it was very unlikely.” He slowly sat down so he didn’t disturb Callum.

“Yes. That’s very true. On paper you seem like you’d make a marginal parent, and I have to be honest, I’m inclined to put Callum in emergency foster care just as a precaution. Like I said, on paper you aren’t a good risk.” He sat back and continued to watch him. “But it’s also apparent that you love Callum and have his best interests at heart. And the trooper who helped rescue Callum spoke on your behalf. He told me how frantic you were to get Callum back and how distraught and upset you were about him being taken. You apparently went to great lengths and took risks to yourself to try to save him.” Donald’s gaze turned cold. “I trust you don’t intend to repeat that kind of risky behavior with Callum?”

There was another knock at the door, and Quinton shook his head before getting up from the mismatched chair. He opened the door and was surprised to see the hot and hunky state trooper on his doorstep. He couldn’t remember his name. Hell, after realizing Callum had been taken, he couldn’t remember a lot other than his need to try to save him. “I….” He peered outside. “I thought you took Jennifer into custody?”

“The local police department claimed jurisdiction, so she was transferred to their car, and they will book her. Since the initial crime took place here in town with her leaving the child in the car, they are more than willing to move forward with the prosecution.” He seemed relieved. “I’m on my way back out on patrol, but I wanted to make sure that Callum was all right.”

“What about the car thief?” Quinton asked.

“He’s in custody as well.” Trooper Hunky watched both of them, and for a second, Quinton wondered just what the broad-shouldered man looked like without that uniform on. Jesus, he was not going to have those kinds of thoughts about a cop. “What’s next?”

Donald sighed. “I’m trying to determine placement for Callum until there’s a hearing.”

“I see,” Trooper Hunky said. Quinton needed to stop thinking of him that way. His badge said Nelson, and he needed to remember that. “Mr. Jackson is Callum’s biological father.” A light of hope seemed to brighten the room for Quinton.

“Yes.” Donald stood. “I’m inclined to leave Callum in his care until permanent placement can be sorted out.”

Quinton sighed and left the room. He put Callum in his new white crib in the corner of his bedroom and grabbed a towel to wipe his eyes. Shit, he didn’t cry. At least he hadn’t in years. Not even when the police had tried to scare the hell out of him the last time he’d been taken into custody just before he’d turned eighteen. The boy he’d been arrested for shoplifting with had wept like a girl, but not him. Quinton had determined a long time ago that showing weakness was the easiest way to get hurt. Bury your emotions and come out fighting. It was better to go down that way than in a pool of weakness. Still, at this moment, the thought of losing Callum when he had the chance to do right by his son was too much to take.

“Mr. Jackson?” Trooper Hunky said from outside the door.

He gave his face another wipe and blinked before leaving the room. “I needed to get Callum down. I’m sorry.”

“Donald will stop by occasionally to check on Callum, and he’s asked if I would be willing to as well as a favor. I’ll be honest, we both have… concerns because of your past, but we are in agreement that as his father, you are the person best to build a relationship with him.”

Jenn Review
4 Stars
I really enjoyed this book, it’s a great second chance romance, which I am a total sucker for, and a really great story about life, the choices we make and the people we choose along the way. Sometimes you have to make choices that can scare you a bit, but it may be completely worth it if you just try. And that’s exactly what Vin and Casey face in this sweet read.
Vin moved away from his small town to make a life for himself. He’s now a successful florist in LA creating unique designs for the rich and famous. He makes a trip home to help his father and he discovers some illegal activity taking place in the old flower shop and greenhouse on his father’s property. That brings Casey back into his life. Vin had major feels for Casey when they were young, but Casey ended up getting married and having a daughter, part of the reason Vin has stayed away, it just hurt too much. But this reunion shows him that things have changed, Casey is now a single dad to adorable and sassy Brianna.
It’s very easy to feel the connection and attraction between Casey and Vin, it’s very heartfelt and genuine. They start spending time together, initially investing what is happening in the greenhouse but it turns into more and it seems like the three of them, little Brianna included feel like a natural family. It’s not that simple though, but any means. Casey’s ex-wife shows up after abandoning them two years ago and she’s definitely up to no good, trying to find a way to get to her daughter. Vin’s dad is looking to sell the flower shop but deep down he wants Vin to come home and re-open the shop, but he has a happy life in LA, right?
I enjoyed this read from start to finish. I loved the emotion I got from these characters and everything they are going through. There’s also a bit of drama thrown in with Casey’s ex-wife along with the investigation around the illegal activity. Both Casey and Vin face some challenges that felt real, you can really feel them struggle at times but it also means you can really feel the love they share. A really great overall, great characters and such a heartfelt ending that made me so happy!


Once they’d both made their selections, the server took their orders, then lingered a few moments to talk with his dad.

“Hey, Vin. I didn’t know you were back in town.”

Vin’s heart gave a little shudder. He knew that voice. Turning, he looked up at Casey Lombard, whose smile was the same one Vin remembered from when they were sixteen and got in trouble for… well, just about anything they thought they could get away with.

“I got in today. The shop in LA is closed for renovations, so I took some time off to visit Dad.” Vin hadn’t seen Casey since the funeral. “How are Alicia and little Brianna?” His dad had told him about Casey’s daughter, but Vin had never met her.

“Alicia returned to the Costa Rica to be with her family about a year after Brianna was born,” Casey said softly.

Vin didn’t know what to say to that. Sure, he was sorry, for Casey’s sake, that things hadn’t worked out, but he couldn’t help being glad that the woman was gone. There’d just been something about her that he didn’t trust.

“Things between the two of us had been… bad. Our marriage had pretty much been a mistake right from the beginning, I guess… with the exception of Brianna.” He scratched his head. “It was ugly. In fact, the ugliness really started shortly after you left for LA.” He seemed miserable. “Alicia is now fighting for custody of Brianna. She wants to take her to Costa Rica to live with her family and is trying to drag me into dealing with the courts down there. Thankfully, the authorities here have denied all her petitions to have Brianna sent down there. Bri is an American citizen, and the courts here believe, as I do, that if Brianna left the country, Alicia’s family would never allow her to return.”

“So you have her?” Casey was made to be a parent. At the funeral, he’d been the one looking after his daughter. Alicia had seemed more intent on seeing and being seen. Maybe by that point she’d already decided to leave. Who knew?

“Yes. But I’m getting tired of fighting. I have told Alicia she’s welcome to come here and see Bri. Hell, I even agreed to pay for the plane ticket. But she’s refused, which hasn’t helped her case.” There was a slight sparkle in Casey’s eyes. “I want my daughter to have a relationship with her mother, but not at the expense of her—and my—happiness. Brianna goes to school here, she has friends and family here. There’s no way in hell that I’m going to uproot—” He cut himself off. “Sorry. I tend to go on about this.”

“Daddy!” Speaking of cuteness. Brianna hurried over to his side from the nearby table. “The waitress brought the food and it’s getting cold.” She took Casey’s hand. “You need to eat.”

“I’m staying at Dad’s,” Vin said. He fished in his wallet, pulled out one of this business cards, and handed it to Casey. “It has my cell number on it. Maybe we can get together while I’m in town.”

“Sure.” Casey took the card, looked at it for a moment, then let Brianna pull him away.

Vin watched them go, a lump in his throat. Casey had been his very first crush in high school, and damn if he hadn’t fallen hard. Then, during their college years, their friendship had grown even deeper, into something resembling love.

Vin mentally shook himself. While it was natural that he’d react this way to seeing Casey again, he’d be smart to push those painful memories away. What they’d had was over long ago.

They’d been just a couple of stupid kids who couldn’t be open and honest with each other. Casey hadn’t been willing to acknowledge their relationship, and Vin hadn’t been willing to hide. When Casey had started seeing Alicia, it had hurt Vin—badly. But he was still willing to wait, hoping that Casey would realize what they had and come back to him. Only it hadn’t worked out that way.

The day after Vin’s mother died, Casey had admitted to him that Alicia was pregnant. It had just been too much. Just thinking about trying to live without his mom—and suddenly Casey too—had been more than he could take. He had to leave town as quickly as he could.
