When Brent McNeil travels to Vancouver to try and find the trail of his missing grandfather, he never expects to meet the love of his life.
When Brent sets off to Vancouver to try and find any clues to his grandfather’s disappearance many years ago, he finds more than he expects. Could a chance meeting have him finding the love of his life? Will he find the closure he needs?
The premise of this story was very interesting. Brent seems like a well-rounded man yet he needs to have some kind of closure for himself on the disappearance of his grandfather. Seeing Brent’s reaction to Vancouver and its inhabitants -- especially Chris -- was an interesting read. Seeing the relationship build between the two was nice. The two men were a great couple who always knew just what the other needed. This story does include some strong spanking scenes, so readers who aren't into that might want to think twice before reading this book. I, however, had no issue with it!
Although the relationship between Chris and Brent was sweet, I had a hard time connecting with the characters. I would have liked a bit more character building. We don't really get to know Brent very well or understand just why he feels the need to have such closure on the years old case of his missing grandfather, a man he has never met. At times this made the book difficult to read.
Even so, the meeting and the budding relationship between the two men was an intriguing story about finding love in the last place you look that some readers may enjoy.
