A paramedic must face old wounds when his Hollywood heartthrob ex returns home and tries to win back his affections. Will he find closure or will he give first love a second chance?
Coming back to Tahoe was a mistake. At least, that’s what Carson Keaton thinks the minute he returns to his hometown. When he ran away seven years ago, he left everything behind, including Brand West, the only person he ever loved. Not that he had a choice. But now that the danger has passed, he returns home to reclaim Brand. The biggest question is, is it too late?
Brand West is a paramedic with a broken heart. Just after high school graduation, the love of his life hopped a Greyhound to Hollywood, leaving without explanation. Now, seven years later, Brand is determined to forget about Carson by throwing himself into his career, his community, and—thanks to his best friend playing matchmaker—a hot new lover. But now Carson’s back in town, as irresistible as ever, leaving Brand with two choices: find closure and move on, or give first love a second chance.
Tahoe Blue is everything I love in a romance and in a M/M romance! Sometimes I find the genre really oversexualizes gay men, making that the entirety of their story. But I love a book that is more than that, and this is that book.
Carson left Tahoe years ago, leaving everything behind him without a look back. No explanations, just gone. Brand was one of those left behind, left to pick up the pieces. The story is second-chance romance at its best! And the character development for both of them is fantastic. Their stories, together and apart from one another, are absoultely engrossing. If you love a great romance with a lot of meat to it, Tahoe Blue is a great choice!
