What's even more, Christian makes me feel safe and protected—something I do for everyone else.
I've never been attracted to a man since Christian... but as soon as I lay my eyes on him, I don't think I'll be attracted to anyone else ever again.
I knew I was gay forever, it seems. But my first love was the one that stuck with me all these years: Ryan Rainier. He's a big deal in the police department now, and as a man in uniform, he's every bit as gorgeous as he was in those young years.
But Ryan's straight, right? So why does he keep looking at me that way, with hunger in his eyes?
Am I just seeing what I want to see? And can I risk losing a lifelong friend for a shot at love?
Breaking In is the second book in the Rainier Family series and can be read on its own. 62k words of trusty, lusty, second-chance love, breaking down walls, Rainiers for days, and a whole big, bustling, small-town family waiting for its HEA.
Ashton Cade's Breaking In is a wonderful addition to the Rainer Family series.
Ryan's divorced, sharing custody of his son, but spends all his time playing it safe. He's a cop, he's seen too much, and he's overly cautious.
When his former high school boyfriend, Christian, finds him, the attraction is still there.
The relationship between Ryan and Christian is a fun one. The cautious Ryan has always been the one to reign Christian in, as Christian doesn't always make good choices.
Christian's been traveling for a living as he's a photographer. But he's back to see if what they had back then was just a summer of sexual exploration or was there more to it.
The heat, chemistry and desire between Ryan and Christian is strong. They are definitely compatible sexually. But, Ryan has roots and Christian's been living as a nomad. I appreciate how realistically this part is handled.
Breaking In is the kind of book I could read everyday. I love this book. I love this series. I'm excited for the next book in this Ashton Cade series!
