On the run with a stolen teddy bear and a couple hundred dollars in cash, Alex’s life takes a strange turn when he crashes his car in a freak accident. Stranded in the desert with no water, he is rescued by a crow that leads him to the home of Lars and Lars’ five-year-old niece Holly.
Lars is a man with secrets, and he’d just as soon Alex was on his way, but delays in the repair of Alex’s car compel him to offer Alex a place to stay in exchange for babysitting services. Alex accepts the offer and soon falls head over heels for Holly and the mysterious Crow.
Over the course of several weeks, Alex finds himself embracing a life he’d only dreamed of. A life of warmth and comfort—and a passion that almost makes him forget the past he’s running from. Almost.
As Lars and Alex fall in love, secrets about Lars and Holly, and a dark danger pursuing Alex, threaten to destroy their new family.
Alex was rescued once by the quirky crow he now lives with. Will Crow be able to save the treasure trove of a family he’s collected one more time?
This was a darling little story. I really enjoyed it. Little bit of mystery and secrets with a whole lot of sweetness and love, and a weird bird, lol.
Alex is on the run. Things in his life have gotten bad and he had to get out of there. He’s in the middle of nowhere when this…thing…flies out of the blue and he swerves to avoid hitting it. Which of course causes him to wreck. He gets out of the car after sustaining even more injuries and follows a crow. The crow which caused him to wreck. He feels delirious following this bird, but something tells him to follow. Dry mouthed and seriously hurt he collapses. When he wakes he sees the most beautiful blue eyes he has ever seen in the eyes of his rescuer.
Lars rescues this red haired beautiful boy that Crow led to him. There’s just something about Alex that makes him want to protect him. But trying to get Alex to open up and find out why he’s on the run is virtually impossible. Lars knows about secrets. He has some of his own. Alex doesn’t have the money to fix his car so Lars makes him a deal. He will work on the car if Alex will help him babysit his niece and run errands. Alex agrees.
Alex and Lars run neck and neck on who my favorite is. Alex is so sweet and vulnerable. Almost innocent. Even though his life wasn’t that great before he ran, he really is innocent. Lars is this broad shouldered, alpha-like male who just wants to protect everyone he meets. He takes care of his 5-yr old niece, Holly, and would do anything for her. Both of these guys just melt my heart. The passion in them both lays underneath and is just waiting to burst. As they get to know each other, the secrets they have begin to come out and they fall even more in love with each other. And it’s so sweet and heartwarming. When Alex’s past becomes his present, Lars realizes even more he can’t do without Alex in their lives and does everything he can to save Alex. And life quickly becomes all they both could ever want. Someone to love and love them in return. And a fresh start.
Definitely recommend reading this to anyone who wants a little angst and a wonderful HEA.
