Lucas Keifer has never prepared himself to see the man that nearly killed him years ago again; so when Sheriff Nicholas Demetris calls him to let him know that his attacker is being sprung from jail – he all but shuts down. Sheriff Demetris is not taking Lucas’s usual reserve attitude when he calls to let him know who was more than likely on his way to his little town and sets about protecting this man.
Being in love with Lucas for the past five years has not gotten Demetris anywhere, however the one thing he has always been sure of, is that Lucas was always there, despite him not allowing him or anyone else close.
This time however things are different, Lucas has given up and is willing to just accept, but Demetris is not having it - he is and will protect this man against the known and the unknown.
I love Lisa Marie Davis, not only is she always able to spin a tale, but she gives us characters who are well developed and a pleasure to read about.
Lucas has settled into small town Cedar Point, content to live life as he sees fit enough for a man who has gone through more than anyone else that he has ever known. He doesn’t make friends easily and the one person who wants to be everything to him – he keeps him at arms length.
There comes a time however that we must all pay the piper and Lucas is at that point where he has to make a choice.
Will Sheriff Demetris accept Lucas reserve manner much longer, when he knows that what this man needs is him?
I loved this book, it was a fun read and I got to know two great guys that have not only become friends but fell in love with the person behind the obvious. I am already lookingforward to the next storyline Lisa Marie Davis weaves.
