Corey Sheppard is nobody’s hero. He got himself out of the foster system and stands on his own two feet. He could never be anyone’s closeted lover. But there’s so much more to Reyse Hickson than the world sees. Corey just can’t stay away.
When Reyse’s dad suffers a stroke, Reyse insists on going home. In desperate need of a friend, he asks Corey to join him. A short time together is better than none. With Reyse’s lifestyle, they know it’s the best they can manage.
But for the first time in his life, Corey finds a family with Reyse. And Reyse doesn’t think he can hide how feels for Corey, even though his label threatens to drop him if he ever comes out. Can Reyse and Corey walk away from the best thing that’s ever happened to either of them? Or is this love worth going down in a blaze of glory?
Blaze is a steamy, standalone gay romance novel with a guaranteed HEA and absolutely no cliffhanger.
Once again, HJ Welch manages to captivate me immediately with Blaze, the fifth book in the Homecoming Hearts series.
I'm always excited for a new to me rocker romance, and this one was definitely fun and exciting, with the perfect amount of angst.
Seeing Corey for the first time literally takes Reyse's breath away, and he's instantly fascinated by this beautiful man. What starts as one night leads to more, as these men are clearly perfect for each other.
It is beautiful and tender when they first hook up. As strangers, they realize they can't have a relationship, but they take measures to appreciate the moment to it's fullest and to take advantage of their time together. It is honestly a wonderfully emotional moment.
One of the fantastic things about this book is the way the loneliness of being famous, and the control that managers have over your decisions are both handled.
Blaze is an amazing rocker romance that is perfectly written. I will definitely be reading this fun one by HJ Welch again.
