He woke up next to an impossibly handsome man with the sound of gunshots ringing in his ears, but the circumstances dictated they’d never see each other again until fate intervened.
Alan Hansen, former military brat, grew into a nomadic adult. He never spent more than three years in one place, until he decided to settle down with his Basset hound Boomer in a small river town in southern Minnesota. He wants a house, permanent job, friends, and a partner, all of the things that make life worth living.
Diego Flores met Alan when both were caught as bystanders to a drug-infested gun battle. Just hours after escaping the violence, still rattled by the experience, they tumbled into bed together in a fiery encounter that had to end the next morning.
After the daylight slaughter of his parents, Diego left his beloved Mexico for good to set up a thriving trucking firm on an investment visa in the upper Midwest. Alan’s new job brings them back together to do business and pursue a second chance. Sparks fly the moment they meet again, and the old attractions quickly kindled from smoldering embers into raging flames.
Alan is determined not to lose Diego a second time, but unfortunately, fearful neighbors in an economically-challenged small town aim to stand in their way. Can love overcome hatred, threats, and violence in this sleepy river town?
Silent Wishes is a 50,000 word second chance romance. It has steamy scenes, no cliffhangers, and a happily ever after in the end. It is the second novel in the River Town series, but it can easily be read as a standalone novel.
My Rating - 5 Stars!
Silent Wishes, by Grant Holland, is a great second chance romance.
The story is written with fantastic characters who are completely relatable, a whole lot of heart, and some loveable romance!
While reading it, I laughed, I cried and I swooned.
I adore the second chance between Diego and Alan, and admire all the obstacles they need to overcome if they are going to be together.
Overall, Silent Wishes is a classic Grant Holland romance, gifting us with a good way to spend a few hours.
