Blurb: At ten years old, Noah Jameson and Cooper Bradshaw collided mid-air when they dove for the same football. For three years, they were inseparable…until one day when Noah and his parents disappeared in the middle of the night.
Noah and Cooper never knew what happened to each other. Now, seventeen years later, after finding his boyfriend in bed with another man, Noah returns to Blackcreek looking for a fresh start. And damned if he doesn't find his old friend grew up to be sexy as sin. Coop can’t believe Noah—the only person he trusted with the guilt over his parents’ death—is back. And gay… Or that Cooper himself suddenly wants another man in his bed for the first time.
There’s no denying the attraction and emotion between them, but can they overcome the ghosts of their pasts to have a future together?
Review: Falling in love with your best friend usually doesn't happen overnight or when you are ten years old, but that's pretty much what happened to Noah. Knowing he felt more for Noah than just friendship was a lot to deal with through the years. When Noah's parents forced him to move from Blackcreek he never knew he would end up back there almost twenty years later.
Literally running into Noah with his truck, Cooper is shocked to have the one person back in his life that he has always trusted more than anyone else.
Cooper is a little shocked to learn that Noah is gay but he's a little more shocked when he realizes that he doesn't want any other man to be with Noah besides himself. Knowing it and living it are two different things in Cooper's world. Past and present prejudices try to keep them apart but if they are willing to fight for each other the future they both want is there for them.
