Slow, fabulous burn! Long Haul Trucker, ready to settle somewhere that feels like "home" meets ex-military man who feels like there isn't much left to live for. SCORE!

This is romance people! I loved it! Highly recommended.
A sweet slow burn romance. I would have liked a more satisfying ending but the HFN was rather nice.

Very lovely and sad at the same time, It would have been great if it has a better ending though. It was nice but insuficient for me.

Much better read than the usual gay romance

I am a Vietnam vet so this story hit close to home for me. It is great story of one man getting to know another who was scarred. I have yet to find such a man in real life. This book also demonstrated that you don't need vivid descriptions of bed gymnastics to be an excellent read!

A sweet, short story with endearing characters (the ex trucker and the traumatized soldier). Zero heat but a slow, romantic build to a HEA.
