The universe hates Mel Stokes. He quit his job, lost his boyfriend, and missed the last train, all in one night. And then, some guy tries to rob him after he walked miles to get home. In shoes that pinched his toes. Nope. Last straw. When a stranger witnesses his lowest life moment and gives him an offer he can’t ignore, what does Mel have to lose?
Working with good Samaritan Lenny Mitchen is the best and worst thing Mel has ever done. Because Lenny is kind and honorable, and there’s no way that Mel can ever erase the first impression of a desperate loser down on his luck, can he? So, he makes a decision, and hopes that maybe, he can turn things around, for a change.
But will it be enough to get what he really wants?
This was a nice sweet story. Mel is having the worst day and when Lenny gives him the chance to move ahead he can’t refuse. He just has to accept that there can never be any more between them.
I felt for Mel and everything was going wrong at the same time but he doesn’t completely give in to the depression he is starting to feel. Lenny came along at the perfect time and Mel quickly gets to start moving forward again but I could feel his pain at how he felt Lenny saw him. I loved watching Mel really make his life better with and after Lenny gives him a chance and their chance meeting a few months later give them both the chance to find the love they wanted.
The cover art by Written Ink Designs is nice and gives a nice visual for the story.
