Loveland, Colorado is a special place, a community of creativity and art, with scenic views and majestic mountains. The city brought Lucky and Jack together, but staying that way will take more than cold-air kisses and sweet valentines.
Jack Canon should be over-the-top happy. He has a job that makes him proud, students who make him laugh, a studio that brings out his creativity, and a man who treats him like he walks on water. But shadows from his past keep coming between him and the joy that should fill his heart. Jack needs to reconcile some bitter loose ends, before he can move forward.
Lucky Roberts is in love—hook, line, and kitchen sink. He wants to shout his feelings to the rooftops and scatter little handmade valentines all over the world. He thinks he’s okay with not being perfect, and knows Jack isn’t perfect either. But when his own past rears its ugly head, Lucky discovers that old habits die hard. Maybe opening his heart to Jack won’t be enough— maybe he just isn’t enough.
Jack and Lucky risk getting caught in limbo between the past and present if they don’t have the strength to share the skeletons in their closets. To move forward together, they have to find the courage to look back…together.
I adored getting to see more Jack and Lucky. These two are so good together, I’m glad we get to see their feelings growing and relationship building. Watching them both say “I love you” for the first time was so adorably Lucky and Jack. They way they both support each other and want to ensure the other is happy is so beautiful to see.
Lucky has some demons he needs to lay to rest and I adored how this came about. He struggles with his feelings for Jack and how “big” they are. He still needs to learn to open up more with Hack and talk about his feelings. But you can tell by the end of the story he’s getting there and realizes it himself. Seeing Lucky react to Jack’s problems in this story was so amazing. He just went where he was needed and made sure Jack knew he was there for him no matter what.
Jack struggled so hard in this story and his emotions came out so clearly as I read. My heart broke for him having to deal with so much from his sisters and his parents’ house. He was definitely ready to handle everything once Lucky was there to support him. That scene right before the ending where he has conversations with two of his sisters shows how far he’s come from the start of the first book. I didn’t think I could love Jack and more but clearly I was wrong.
The ending is that perfect spot between happy for now and happily ever after. They’re so crazy in love and you can tell their relationship is going to stand the test of time. And if there’s no more books about them, that’s ok because you know they make it. But one more where you can see all the rainbows, hearts, flowers, and unicorns to get that full squishy feel would be most welcome.
K-Lee Klein has lived in one part of Western Canada or another for her entire life. She’s a doting mother of three now-grown kids, and has had characters and plots running around her head for as long as she can remember.
She lives with an patient husband who totally does not get her thing for gay men, two spoiled but wonderful sons (who don’t get it either), and two also spoiled, but beautiful cats. Her days are also filled with many texts and phone calls with her daughter who has already left the nest, and an abundance of fabulous gay men, large and small, bouncing off the walls of her skull, competing for their turns to tell their stories.
After finally throwing caution to the wind, K-lee’s first story was accepted and published in December of 2011, and since then she’s been lucky enough to be picked up by several publishers. She’s thrilled to be substituting her previous jobs as a hockey manager/coach, school band volunteer and overall chauffeur with her passion for writing beautiful, emotional men.
Among her favorite sub-genres are rockstars, cowboys, shifters, and opposites-attract relationships. But to be honest, she’s open to almost anything if it involves messing around in the heads of her characters. She’s also big on series–because she has a hard time letting her characters go–and is usually working on a handful of stories in various stages of completion all at the same time.
