Liam Davis is a man without a past. That’s what he wants everyone to believe, anyway. Hell-bent on erasing any memories of his previous life, he knows that starting over is all he can do. Hiding who he is, where he’s from, why he’s running, and especially who he’s left behind, Liam has run away from everything he’s ever known. His plan works perfectly until one day when Parker Ryan threatens to expose his carefully concealed world.
Parker Ryan is a man without a future. Sure, he’s a partner in one of New York’s most prestigious law firms, but he’ll never be more than a failure in the eyes of his boss, his father. Rather than break away from his father’s standards, he finds himself mindlessly pursuing them, in turn sacrificing anything that would actually make him happy.
When Liam’s and Parker’s lives collide, the ugly truth about who they really are, and who they hope to become reveals itself when they least expect it. As both of their lives become wrecked beyond all belief, they’ll learn how to rely on each other in their journey to become Repaired.
“All we’d ever wanted was to be loved for our broken pieces, not despite them.”
No truer words were ever spoken. This sentence sums up Liam and Parker. No one is perfect but we should still love and be loved.
At times my heart broke in two for these two characters. Melissa knows how to write an emotional story that pull at the heart strings. Liam and Parker were so different but somehow it was fate that put these two together. They were the piece that would make them whole and heal old wounds.
“ I never quite understood how who you loved made a difference in the person you were, but apparently, there were people out there far less open-minded than me.”
Love is love, plain and simple. Liam and Parker proved this over and over. This story touched on real life issues only making me love this story more.
I seem to be drawn to Melissa’s M/M books but either way I know I’ll get a great story and I look forward to her next book in the future!
