The Carpenter, by Robin Stone

The Carpenter

Broken-hearted Grant retreats to a cabin in the woods to work on his master’s thesis and escape the sadness of a recent breakup. A blizzard is on the way, but Grant has food, books, and a cozy fireplace. But when a loud knock jolts Grant from his chair, he’s stunned to see his intense ex-boyfriend, Adam…

Adam wants to win back Grant’s love, but it won’t be easy. Harsh words were spoken during their breakup, and Adam’s struggling to heal from his wounded past. Grant wants to start a family, but Adam can’t imagine being a father…

The men cooperate to stay safe and warm during the blizzard, but they can’t deny their feverish attraction. They discuss a future together, but old hurts surface. Can Adam and Grant resolve their differences and have the future they always planned, or will this weekend be their final goodbye?

My review:

** I volunteered to read an advance reviewer copy of this book. **

It is no secret that I enjoy reading Robin Stone’s erotica so I was beyond excited to delve into a story based solely around a M/M relationship even though I am not a fan of “second chance” romance.  I was not disappointed.  This tale was able to be both genuinely sweet and feverishly hot.  The tender romance was endearing and the erotica oh-so-enticing.  This novella was a perfect quick read that hit all the right spots exactly when I needed them most; and without realizing my yearning.

My rating:  Redbreast
