Evin lost the only two men he ever loved. But he might get a second chance with one of them—if he’s willing to take the risk.
Following the death of his husband, Evin is living in Portland and raising the infant son they had through a surrogate. Six-month-old Micah is his life, and if it means no time for activities or friendships beyond his minuscule support network, that’s a sacrifice Evin is willing to make. When he suffers a burn baking teething biscuits, the last person Evin expects to encounter in the ER is Ben, his lover from college—and the man who left him without a word of explanation.
Ben knows it won’t be easy to earn Evin’s trust and prove he’s not the same man Evin once knew, but he can’t bear to watch Evin struggle to care for Micah, hurting and alone. He wants back in Evin’s life, as a friend and hopefully more, but Evin’s heart is fragile, and the years have changed him too.
Earning His Trust is a great, very sweet second chances love story that put a smile on my face while reading it.
I love the cover and it reflects the cute relationship between father and son and shows the loving atmosphere the writer created.
If you enjoy second chances romances, this is a perfect read for you. Ben and Evin are college boyfriends who broke up when Ben left Evin after graduation. Six years pass and a chance encounter in a hospital where Ben works changes both their lives for good.
The story has a good flow and an entertaining style. I enjoyed the pace, the slow build up, the way they rebuild their friendship and also the sweet chemistry they share.
The baby scenes are written with care and knowledge/research and they are lifelike and heartwarming.
The emotions are believable and real and there is no unnecessary angst or heartache. I really enjoyed this story and I hope you will too.
