Hilton Burke might be one of the most powerful men in the world, but he can’t get what he wants the most. Every time he sees Cathal McKinley, his head of security, Hilton wishes they could be more than just employer and employee. In fact, he might be in love with Cathal, even though they’ve never slept together.
Cathal McKinley accepts how much he wants his boss, but he’s pretty sure Hilton will never date him. They come from two different worlds. Now that he has to return to Sunburst, Montana, to deal with family problems, Cathal knows there is no chance for them to get together.
Hilton and Cathal spent years dancing around each other, but when Cathal needs help the most, Hilton comes to Montana to support him. Soon they’re struggling with children and an old friend who won’t take no for an answer. Finally admitting their love out loud might be the least of their worries.
This was another sweet story. While this is in the series and we see Chuck and Herb again this book had a very different feel than the previous ones did. There weren’t really outside forces affecting them in the story most of it had to do with Hilton and Cathal finally admitting and acting on their feelings.
Cathal and Hilton have spent years working together without actually letting the other know how they feel, even though Herb often comments on their actions. Cathal has spent his whole adult life believing that his father has hated him and gets the surprise of a lifetime when he goes back to his hometown to take responsibility for this sister’s kids when his father gets very sick and passes away. Hilton quickly follows and becomes the perfect partner and support for Cathal, surprising those around him.
Cathal has been hurting silently though a friend from high school keeps him up to date on what is happening in his family. He already knows a bit about the kids from a distance but Cathal’s father has prepared them for Cathal coming to be with them, they have been cast aside by their mother and now they are losing their grandfather as well; you can’t help but hurt for them as they go through this. I loved seeing Hilton really being the down to earth guy that he doesn’t really show to others, but he’ll get right into the mess with everyone else. It was great to see Chuck and Herb again and how they all interact with each other and the kids.
Cover art by Anne Cain is nice and I like the visuals of the characters but it didn’t call to me like the others in the series.
