Three years ago Andrew Wilson and Flynn Barnett were in a relationship, until Flynn made a mistake that nearly cost Andrew his life. Andrew walked away from the FBI, his home, and his partner, and started over back in Montreal, running a restaurant.
Fast forward to the present and Andrew is knee-deep in preparations for his sister’s wedding. When an ex-colleague calls to ask for one last favor, the last person he expects to walk through his door is Flynn, in need of a place to stay. Only thing is, Andrew can’t say no.
Two weeks of wedding hijinks bring back all the old feelings that have simmered below the surface. Caught in a cycle of fighting and making up, the two men try to figure out if there’s anything they can salvage. And even if there is, Andrew can’t be sure this time will be any different.
Andrew Wilson and Flynn Barnett’s first “official” meeting was in the office of their boss for the FBI, but their true first meeting was in a club, at a bar, on a dare. It was that first official meeting that made them partners at work, but the unofficial meeting made them partners outside of work also.
The story was good and I really liked how Meg Harding did the prelude, breaking it down to the beginning (how they met), the middle (the relationship on/off work), and the end (the end of them). It all takes place at Andrew’s parent’s house as they are all getting ready for his sister’s wedding, so you really get to meet his family, and I will say they are close and stand behind him as family should. They do not make it easy for Flynn as they know their history.
The characters are well written and likable even at their worst moments, or when you might not want to like them and yell at them to talk and get all that anger they have inside at each other out. I would recommend checking The Last Favor out and enjoy the family antics and the journey Andrew and Flynn take to maybe a future with each other.
