Family secrets, a surprise inheritance, and a sweet employee he can’t help falling for. Sunset Beach was only supposed to be a quick trip but now he’s wondering if he’ll be able to leave.
Dane learned early to not rely on anyone. He has a good job and a decent life in the city. Granting his father’s request to visit the family he didn’t know existed, the last thing he expected was to find out he’d inherited a share in his grandfather’s inn.
Brook has only known romance through notes left in a mailbox at the end of the beach. When he’s tasked with showing his boss’s gorgeous nephew what makes Sunset Beach and Bird Island special, he’s compelled to take Dane to his favorite place.
Dane never wanted the inn, but when it’s threatened, he steps up to defend it… and keep the man he’s coming to love by his side and in his life.
I enjoyed this story. It was good for Dane to find a home where he was actually happy and for Brook to find that love he has longed for.
Dane’s uncle made some really bad decisions and it caused some problems but once it was out in the open I liked that Dane was determined to keep the inn and his new home. He was able to find something he cared about and I loved watching Brook help him discover his happiness. I was glad that Dane had his friend’s support after everything happened with his dad, though I did internally question where he stayed after his dad went to prison.
I liked getting to know these characters and seeing how they were feeling. I liked seeing Dane go from annoyed to resigned and then to deliriously happy and in love. Brook was so resigned to his life and knowing that something was wrong but Dane was able to find a way to save it all.
The cover art is nice and I like the visual of the beach.
