What happens when thirst becomes an obsession that can’t be quenched?
Forty-year-old Zachariah Taylor prides himself on being the overprotective older brother of seven. He owns a successful bar, Zach’s Bar and Grill, in the quiet town of Riverside Falls and loves the life he’s built for himself. But as his siblings move on and find their forever partners in life, he’s starting to feel less and less needed—not to mention old. Suddenly, he’s finding it even harder to ignore the younger man who has pursued him for years, but the twelve years separating them is something Zach can’t seem to overlook.
Twenty-eight-year-old Drew Belford has been in love with the stubborn Zach Taylor for seven years. Sure, he was a kid when they’d first met, but what Zach is determined to ignore is the man Drew has become. Drew, however, is just as strong-minded and refuses to let Zach use their age difference as an excuse to disregard the attraction burning between them. He doesn’t need an overprotective older brother—he needs Zach.
When Drew begins to get unsettling messages from an unknown person, Zach feels helpless in a way he’s never felt before. How can he protect Drew from someone he can’t find? The thought of anyone hurting Drew unleashes years’ worth of pent-up desire Zach has had for the younger man. Is his thirst for Drew enough to protect him from the danger lurking in the shadows, or will the threat of the unknown be enough to dowse the spark of love between them—and silence Drew forever?
Second book in the Beyond the cove series that can be read as a standalone. I loved Zach and Drew so much. I sort of felt bad for Drew because Zach is so dense and stubborn about his feelings. He was unknowingly hurting him.
And seven years of pining?!! Fuuuuck!! That’s a long time! Seven years of Zach being stubborn.
The stalker plot. I didn’t see that coming. It was a total surprise. I was suspecting a lot of people but it didn’t even come close.
I felt like there was a bit too much “I’m his, he’s mine” stuff. They think or say that so many times after they got together, I thought that it was a bit too much.
Sawyer. I’m so intrigued by him. I want his backstory so bad! I’m sensing a shitload of angst there. I can’t wait for his book!(Especially since it’s with Grant and Mason)
The next book is Ryder and Avery and fingers crossed, I can read it as soon as possible!!
