“Sounds good, but what are we going to do now?”
Drew shrugged. “Play cards. Drink.”
“Make out?” Where had that thought come from?
Drew shrugged again, and a light pink blush rushed over his face.
Tad stepped forward and slid his hand behind Drew's head and pulled him down. Their lips met in a sweet, almost chaste kiss. It felt new and warm and fresh, so Tad pushed for a bit more, teasing Drew's lips with his tongue.
A bit of magic, a lot of romance
A lovely story about letting go and starting anew. A well-written contemporary romance with a touch of paranormal.
For three years now, Drew has feelings for one of his clients in the coffee shop, but Tad is less approachable than ever. There is a sadness around him that makes Drew want to embrace and protect him. Then one day Drew takes the plunge and shows him his portfolio in the hopes that Tad will like what he sees. Not only his work but also Drew himself. Tad has seen Drew alright, but he has a hard time letting go of his lost love, Bobby. Although they haven’t been together for a long time, Tad still sees him every time he thinks of Bobby. This is where the magic comes in. I loved how the paranormal elements were woven into the overall romance story.
The road trip Drew and Tad take is the much-needed time spent together to get to know each other better. In the country, city boy Tad gets the peace to go through his feelings and to choose for Drew.
It is not an easy journey, but with mutual respect and understanding Drew and Tad find their happily ever after.
A contemporary love story with a touch of paranormal.... and coffee.
