Zander Brooks was in the military until one of his conquests dumped him with a daughter he never knew he had. He has no idea how to look after Savanah and desperately needs help. The only person he can think of is Cole but will he be that person. When Cole is hurt in a car crash he knows he is in trouble.
This is a beautifully written story, fast paced and will tug at you heartstrings.
You know sometimes, you just need a book to fall into? To just live with the characters, and forget about the world outside the window??
This book, right here. Massive warm and fuzzies, people, a too-stinking-cute-slash-warm-and-fuzzies book that just made my Sunday morning!! And I'm gonna make a warm and fuzzies shelf now too. (Because warm and fuzzies is NOT the same as too stinking cute, but both apply to this book!)
It's well written, from both men's point of view. You get Cole's reaction to Zander. And you get into the heart of Zander when he fights with himself about why he left all those years ago. We ever when Zander decides to go for it with Cole, hearts be dampened and we get when Cole decides that a two foot distance is far too far apart.
There is no major drama, no falling out, no nutty ex to content with, just two guys, finding each other again after so long. And it got me, right there, and I bloody loved it.
But what made this book, what totally and utterly MADE this book, was that epilogue. Oh, don't get me wrong, this was already a five star read at that point but hearing from Savanah, some 13 years later, was just tipped it over the edge and made me cry! In a good way, mind, a very good way. It showed how much Savanah would miss her dad and Cole, how much she loved them, and still, after all that time, they loved each other.
So, thank you, Ms Harding, for making me feel altogether human again after a really rubbish shift at work, for making my Sunday morning, I didn't get out of bed til I had read this and I read it in one sitting.
Because, you know, I loved this book!!! And I need more from Ms Harding in my life!

Seventeen years ago when their family were both stationed in Germany, Zander and Cole became a couple. However, Zander determined to never let anybody close, because they all leave in the end, so he broke things up with Cole. I LOVE the emotional conflicts that happened at present time between the two men. It is clear that the feeling is still there; still strong even if they haven't seen each other for almost two decades.
I appreciate that Cole doesn't immediately give in to his feeling once he acknowledged it and accepts that Zander wants to give their relationship a second chance. Cole was hurt all those years ago and he won't let Zander get away easy. That is where the slow-burn comes from. It takes time for both of them to be together. Not to mention that when this story starts, Cole has a steady boyfriend.
In fact, that is probably the major reason for me not being able to rate this book higher. As much as I love complicated love stories, anything that involves a third party is not easy for me to read. I hate seeing the other person getting hurt, especially if it's not their fault.
In between Zander and Cole reconnecting there is of course Zander dealing with his daughter. I like kids in my romance, but Savanah isn't an easy child in the beginning. It does give a perfect excuse for Zander and Cole to keep line of communication open but at times I admit that Savanah tries my patience as well *smile*.
There is another angst included near the end regarding Cole's mother. I'm not sure if it's needed at all, to be honest. However, I'm not too annoyed by it.
The epilogue, by the way, is perfection *sigh*
They were 2 young men trying to figure out how to be together. They shared their firsts everything together then one day when Cole told Zane he loved him, Zane ended it. Based on Zane's home life he knew everyone left him so he didn't want to get involved. Zane found himself falling for Cole as well and he couldn't have handled it when Cole left him so he broke up with him first.
Fast forward years later and Cole has become a kindergarten teacher and has a new student Savannah in class. Savannah is having some behavior problems and Cole asks to see her father.
Needless to say when Savannah's father walks in and is no other than Zane, Cole doesn't know what to do.
Zane cant believe that his daughters teacher is Cole, the boy he never forgot, and he is right in front of him. At first both men don't know what to say and try to act like that don't have a past.
Cole has never forgotten Zane and the love he had for him but has moved on with his life after they broke up. He has friends and family who care about him. Cole also has a farm full of animals that had no home and he takes care of them.
Zane joined the military and had a one night stand that resulted in Savannah. Zane didn't know he had a daughter until she was left at his doorstep. Now he is a father and has to learn how to deal with his new life. Cole comingback into the picture after all these years is making him feel things again.
Cole and Zane start to date and quickly fall back together like they were never apart. Zane tells Cole that he need to learn how to open up and trust that people he loves wont leave him. Savannah is a big part in helping Zane deal because he sees himself in his daughter.
The chemistry between Zane and Cole was hot once they get together. I would have liked the story to slow down once they got back together. I thought they went from meeting to being in love to HEA. It would have been nice to see them struggle with the issues they face.
Savannah was a great character to read, she was a feisty 5 year old trying to get her Dad's attention and to make sure he would not leave her like her Mother did. The last chapter was great , we got to hear how their lives are in the future and how all 3 became a family. Reviewed for Alpha Book Club.
