Brad has left his family and what many would see as a privileged life behind. Now, he’s arrived in his college town at the beginning of the summer with no place to stay and the hope of a job. But the night before his interview he helps out a guy in trouble in the parking lot of the diner where he was sleeping in his truck. Danny is interested–and Brad is, too, to be honest–but Brad can’t go down that road. He did once before and it ended badly for everyone. He’s in town for school, and that’s it. He’s not looking for complications. But complications are exactly what he finds when he gets the job and it comes with a place to stay above the boss’s garage–and Danny is the boss’s son…

Wonderful. I really enjoyed this and I found myself rooting for both Brad and Danny at every single turn. These two are such so adorable and they’ve both been through so much that one just can’t help hoping they get what they need. Brad’s family is infuriating–to say the very least–and is such a stark contrast to Danny’s. Well-written and engaging, I found myself easily engrossed in this story set in a town not far from where I grew up. And it all just rings so true.
