Blurb : Resigned to living a sexless, loveless life, Doctor Nathan Tierney knows something is missing. In a rash decision, he leaves his life-consuming job at Mass General Hospital, Boston, to be the small-town doctor in Belfast, Maine.

With the job comes a house, and with the house comes a handyman-painter. Trent Jamieson, a nomadic artist, and his dog Bentley, are offered free accommodation for the few weeks he fixes up the hospital-owned house.

Nathan is transfixed by this free-spirited, undeniably gorgeous man. Confused but amazed to feel any kind of attraction – much less to a man – Nathan convinces himself to put aside any preconceived ideas, and allows himself to just feel.

As their attraction for each other grows, one man learns to live, the other learns to love. But just who is teaching who?

My Review : Don’t you just love finding a great feelgood book? You know what’s even better,  is when that damn book is free. OMG,  I am so loving this author right now, it’s the second free book I’ve gotten from this author that has substance and quality. Oh and did I mention, the sex was fucking fantastic between the two main characters. I’m talking off the charts hot, incredible chemistry. It’s like watching porn with a great storyline, not just oohs, aahs and fuck me harder. These guys were perfect for each other, they complemented each other beautifully.

 Nathan was a big city doctor whose life was unfulfilled,  there was not much passion left in him. He sees himself as a sexless creature and loneliness is taking over his life, despite him having a great job and a home. He sees a position as a live in doctor in a small town posted on the hospital’s notice board.  He decides to jump at the opportunity, thinking that country living will restore something within him.

Upon arriving at his new home, he is told that he will have a temporary roommate who is fixing up the house. Trent is definitely interested when he meets the sexy doctor. He flirts shamelessly and poor clueless Nathan is not sure what’s happening to his body. He finally comes to the realization that what he is feeling is arousal and what a shocker that is for him. He has slept with women but he has never felt any true desire for them. What he feels for Trent knocks his socks off, or should I say britches. He walks around with a semi hard-on for the devilishly sexy Trent. It’s almost as if his body has been awakened and he decides to pursue and explore this form of attraction. Nathan is definitely not put off by being attracted to a man, he is just so damn happy that he is finally living and has found his sexual ‘self’.

 The relationship is very easy and fun between the two. As time goes on Nathan finds himself falling for Trent. However,  whenever Nathan tries to get into serious conversations about what they are to each other , Trent clams up and backs off. After  some conflict, they both realize they are truly in love with each other. I really enjoyed their journey together. I had such a visceral reaction to their lovemaking,  it was unbelievably sensual, raw and just plain fucking hot. These characters are painted so genuinely beautiful, it makes you the reader feel as if they are a part of your reality. I give this my ratings of 5 – bring out the vibrators. 

My favorite quotes : 1. I want to taste more of you,” he murmured. “Empty your cock in my mouth.” ( Trent had such a way with words, such a dirty mouth, such a turn on😉).

BTW,  I found this book free on omnilit.com. Check it out. This Author is definitely worth spending good money on.
