Hagen Wylie has it all figured out. He’s going to live in his hometown, be everybody’s friend, explore new relationships, and rebuild his life after the horrors of war. No muss, no fuss is the plan. He’s well on his way—until he finds out his first love has come home too. Hagen says it’s no big deal, but a chance encounter with Mitch Thayer’s two cute sons puts him directly in the path of the only guy he’s never gotten out of his head. 
 
Mitch returned for three reasons: to raise his sons where he grew up, to move his furniture business and encourage it to thrive, and to win Hagen back. Years away made it perfectly clear the young man he loved in high school is the only one for him. The problem? He left town and they have not talked since. 
 
If Hagen’s going to trust him again, Mitch needs to show him how he’s grown up and isn’t going to let go. They could have a new chance at love… but Hagen is insistent he’s not reviving a relationship with Mitch. Then again, you never know.

Left me torn.

This book both delighted and disappointed me.  I love a second chance love story, and this one has a beautiful basis, the characters are endearing and attractive, and incredibly well developed, and the writing is wonderful, as is always the case from this author.  
My disappointment? At the beginning of this book, Hagen is in a 'kinda' relationship with Ash, albeit a physical arrangement rather than a romantic one, but this arrangement continues for more than half of the book.  It is only after the 60% mark that we get any indication that Hagen may entertain the idea of rekindling his relationship with Mitch.  Both of these relationships had their appeal, but this book needed to be substantially longer to do justice to the story of Hagen and Mitch, after the focus being elsewhere for so long.
