Caddock ‘The Brute’ Stanford lost his brother and rugby career within the same year. The once man-about-town is now a has-been and guardian to his young nephew. Not sure where life will go after the scrum, he decides to purchase a pub in the Cornwall village of Looe. He never expects to fall in lust—and then love.

Francis Keen hides his crippling anxiety behind his eccentric habits, lush interior design, and beloved dog, Sherlock. Alone by choice after an attack in college left him emotionally scarred, he lives by the sea with his gran, resigned to working small jobs for local businesses. Revamping the pub for the new owner is right up his alley—especially when he realizes who the owner is.

Two men, so different, on track for a romantic collision. Can they survive the impact?

4 out of 5 (very good)

This is the story of Caddock, the retired rugby player, and Francis, the interior designer, and how they get together. This is a sweet romance, guaranteed to give you the warm fuzzies whilst you read it. Filled with heart-warming characters of both human and canine varieties, you will travel to antiques fairs and pubs in Cornwall.

Well-written and smoothly paced, this was a slow burner of a romance, although the attraction was instantaneous. Caddock and Francis are most definitely a case of opposites attracting and definitely complementing each other.

Another winner from Dahlia Donovan, and definitely recommended by me.

* I received this book from Hot Tree Promotions in return for a fair and honest review. *

Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

Dahlia Donovan wrote her first romance series after a crazy dream about shifters and damsels in distress. She prefers irreverent humour and unconventional characters. An autistic and occasional hermit, her life wouldn’t be complete without her husband and her massive collection of books and video games.
