Layton wants success, Adler wants family, how can love make both these things possible?
Layton Foxx works
hard for what he has. The condo, the career, the chance to make his mark, is all down to the sacrifices he has made. With tragedy in his past, he doesn’t want or need love. Then he meets Adler Lockhart, the extroverted, sexy winger for the Harrisburg Railers and abruptly he can’t avoid love even if he wanted to.
Adler Lockhart has had everything handed to him his whole life. Cars, villas, cash, college tuition at the finest Ivy League schools. The only things he doesn’t have are parents who care or the love of a good man. Then Layton walks into his privileged life and shows him what real love can be like.
Alder is socially awkward which is a kind of hero I love. It doesn’t come out in the shy way but in the overly outgoing way.
Layton is buttoned up and his job is crisis management. We get a great opposites attract trope going.
I love Adler’s hell bent clumsy wooing of Layton. I really liked all the complexities revealed about each hero overtime.
Adler really wants love and Layton, eventually, can’t help but love him.
We get a great subplot at Layton manages the heroes of the first book in the series coming out a professionial sports setting. All the secondary characters are great.
This book is perfect for a reread in times when you need comfort.
