Blurb: Three years ago Andrew Wilson and Flynn Barnett were in a relationship, until Flynn made a mistake that nearly cost Andrew his life. Andrew walked away from the FBI, his home, and his partner, and started over back in Montreal, running a restaurant.
Fast forward to the present and Andrew is knee-deep in preparations for his sister’s wedding. When an ex-colleague calls to ask for one last favor, the last person he expects to walk through his door is Flynn, in need of a place to stay. Only thing is, Andrew can’t say no.
Two weeks of wedding hijinks bring back all the old feelings that have simmered below the surface. Caught in a cycle of fighting and making up, the two men try to figure out if there’s anything they can salvage. And even if there is, Andrew can’t be sure this time will be any different.
Review: Second chance is one of my favorite themes, and I liked Meg Harding’s writing before, which was the main reason for me to request the ARC.
Now, I thought the ‘original’ conflict that made Andrew walk away from the FBI was adequately presented to us readers in the earlier chapters. However, the reunion felt a little stiff for me. Their conversations felt stilted when it was about ‘that night’. Plus Flynn seemed to harbor deep upset towards Andrew’s walking away from him three years previously. So I wasn’t really sure that both Andrew and Flynn had actually ‘sorted things out’ before they finally decided that they would give their relationship another chance.
I enjoyed the wedding preparations though – it was crazy but fun to read. Even if it gave Andrew headaches. It felt real and relatable. I liked Andrew’s family members, even when they tried to starve Flynn in the beginning as way of solidarity to Andrew *laugh*.
Overall Impression: It was good
