He’s the one that got away. But, Banks Weston is more than just the man who got away. I let him go. He’d been ready to share with the world his true self, living life openly. He’s loud and proud. It’s all the many things I’m not. It took me a while, but I did it—everyone knows I’m gay. I want him back. My betrayal broke his heart. No—I obliterated it. But somehow, our paths cross again, and we have a reason to come together and pretend we’re something we’re not. Though in my heart, I’ll always hope for the second chance I don’t deserve.
I both hate him and love him all at the same time. His arrogant smirk, the way he rakes his hands through his hair when he’s nervous, and how he lightens any situation with his humor—are just a few things I miss about Dallas Phillips. I won’t let him suck me in again by his charming nature. My guard is up. I’m standing firm. That is until we find a reason to be together. We’ll have to fake it, showing the whole world that we’re a couple. Then again, it won’t be hard because my heart has never stopped loving him.
For you, Banks Weston, I’ll lasso it if need be. I’ll fly there and shrink it and bring it back to you.
ARC REVIEW ➞
The moment I started this book I knew that it would be emotional, but this was so much more than I ever expected but I loved every single moment of this story.
Dallas and Banks’s relationship was not an easy one and for most of it everything was completely hidden from the public eye, until they were finally ready to come out to the world, that is until Dallas left Banks. Now, a year later, they are face to face again.
There is no denying the chemistry that Dallas and Banks have, even after a year apart without any sort of contact these two men still have so much love for each other, but there is also a lot of pain and heartache between them. I was rooting for them from the start. Sally and Jonah are exactly what Banks and Dallas needed, but the two kids also needed them. The dynamic that they formed was beautiful and I loved every moment of it. My heart also broke for Sally and Jonah and the struggles and responsibilities they had at young ages and they deserved all the love and good in the world.
If you’re looking for a second chance, MM romance with plenty of emotions this is one to read.
