Evin lost the only two men he ever loved. But he might get a second chance with one of them—if he’s willing to take the risk.
Following the death of his husband, Evin is living in Portland and raising the infant son they had through a surrogate. Six-month-old Micah is his life, and if it means no time for activities or friendships beyond his minuscule support network, that’s a sacrifice Evin is willing to make. When he suffers a burn baking teething biscuits, the last person Evin expects to encounter in the ER is Ben, his lover from college—and the man who left him without a word of explanation.
Ben knows it won’t be easy to earn Evin’s trust and prove he’s not the same man Evin once knew, but he can’t bear to watch Evin struggle to care for Micah, hurting and alone. He wants back in Evin’s life, as a friend and hopefully more, but Evin’s heart is fragile, and the years have changed him too.
Earning His Trust by Alicia Nordwell
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I'm not sure how to rate this book.
It was okay-ish, I think. But not memorable enough for me to make brag about the story to my friends. It was short but I felt forever to finished it. You the feeling?
I liked the second chance story, I liked the promised of a better relationship after failed the first time.
Yeah they were kids back then, but can't Ben talked to him before he leave and not just disappeared like a douchebag and then he wanted Evin back after so many years?Evin has every right to doubt Ben and say no. But instead, it was a little disappointing how much he trusted Ben with his baby.
And easily forgave him. Yeah. Not my scene.
I can give more star if only there's a satisfied ending, but no. It was a HFN, and ended abruptly. Just like that.
Not my favorite, apparently.
