Parker Wilson has the life he’s always wanted: an apartment in Brighton Pier, amazing family and friends, and a job he loves. With the invitation to his childhood best friend’s engagement party, the safe haven he’s created around himself is soon flooded with memories of the past. The roadblock he’s taken years detouring soon becomes a reality he can no longer avoid. After six years, Parker will have to see Sarah’s brother again—the only man he’s ever truly loved.

After running away from the truth and moving to Boston, Jason Maxwell must finally face Parker again—and the guilt he’s felt for leaving Parker all those years ago. Confronting the man who changed everything Jason thought he knew about himself, Jason realizes the miles he’s put between them hasn’t diminished what Parker means to him. Now, with the undeniable way he feels about Parker, Jason is determined to finally make things right.

Can a second chance finally land Jason and Parker on the path to happiness they’ve waited years for, or will they discover the final destination is actually the end of the road?


We finally get Parker’s story and I loved it!! It can be read as a standalone but I’d highly recommend reading the series in order to get the maximum enjoyment. Some of the major tropes are:

✔ Best friend’s brother
✔ Second Chance
✔ Bisexual awakening
✔ Found family
✔ Dual POV

Parker and Jason’s story is filled with heartbreak, longing, regret, love and a hard earned HEA. They have explosive chemistry.

“All roads lead to you, Parker. Always have.”

I was really happy to be back in this world and meet all my favourite characters. I adored Sarah, Jason’s sister. Loved the banter. Another favourite secondary character is Kenz. I hope she gets a story, at least a novella.

A great addition to the series and I highly recommend it. There’s something about second chances that pulls at my heart strings. It’s probably the Yearning. All those feels!!

Parker looked over to the fridge at his best friend Sarah’s engagement picture with Trevor, wishing he only saw her face when he looked at that golden hair and those blue eyes. Guilt washed over him thinking about the face haunting his thoughts when there was a gorgeous man—in the flesh—in his goddamn kitchen. Every time he got something out of the fridge, there the picture was, like a catalyst for the inferno of memories burned into every crevice of his mind.

No matter how hard he’d tried to prepare himself for this day, nervous knots twisted in his stomach. Who knew it would take six years to get here? Six long years. Parker wasn’t the same man he was back then. Hell, Jason wasn’t, either. Maybe his hair was receding. Maybe he gained a twenty-pound, guilt-induced beer belly.

Who are you trying to fool? He’d still have those beautiful blue eyes—the ones Parker was most scared to see. At one point in time, all Jason had to do was look at him and Parker would have bathed in that blue ocean. He would have followed him anywhere.

And that had been the problem. How pathetic is that?

I have been an artist from a very young age. From drawing cartoon characters and evolving into portraits, making jewelry, photography, and now writing. I have an amazing support system in my family and friends and couldn’t be more grateful.

I live in central New Jersey, love summers at the Jersey Shore, rock music, wine, sexy men, and laughing a lot with my amazing friends and family. Sunday dinners at my parents’ house are crazy, hysterical and you can count on a movie quote…or ten…being thrown out. Insults between siblings is how we show our love for each other!

When I’m not creating, you can find me reading books from my favorite authors. I’m a hopeless romantic, starving for passionate characters and always craving that happy ending, whether in reading or in writing my own books.
