ETHAN SHARPE is living every young Kiwi’s dream—seeing the world for a couple of years while deciding what to do with his life. Then he gets a call. Two days later he’s back in New Zealand. Six months later his mother is dead, his fifteen-year-old brother is going off the rails and the café he’s inherited is failing. His life is a hot mess and the last thing he needs is another complication—like the man who just walked into his café,

a much older…

sinfully hot…

EPIC complication.

TANNER CARPENTER’s time in Queenstown has an expiration date. He has a new branch of his business to get up and running, exorcise a few personal demons while he’s at it, and then head back to Auckland to get on with his life. He isn’t looking for a relationship especially with someone fifteen years his junior, but Ethan is gorgeous, troubled and in need of a friend. Tanner could be that for Ethan, right? He could brighten Ethan’s day for a while, help him out, maybe even offer some… stress relief, no strings attached. It was a good plan, until it wasn’t.


My Review:

STARS: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Review By Virginia Lee

This was an emotional story of a young man that lost his mom and now has to manage everything back home. The stress is taking a toll on Ethan at his mom coffee shop that he inherits. But will the struggle with his 16 years old brother and not knowing how to connect again with him. Tanner he pulls to Ethan if though there is a major age difference. We see Tanner and Ethan come together and heal each other from there pains and guilt. The banter and flirting with this two would make you fan yourself from reading. Can’t wait to see what happens next and maybe something with the recluse author/barista highly recommend this book today
