|Blurb: Married life is everything Bull and Red could have hoped for. It’s not something they’d ever take for granted and the need to pay it forward is a trait the husbands happily share. When the new director of the Bennett House asks Red to teach an art class, he isn’t entirely sure how it will help, but he’s more than willing to try. Before Bull, he used his art to purge his demons and sharing that with those in need of an outlet for their own pain was a gift he never considered giving. Each week he is rocked by the artful outpouring of emotion and the gratitude of his students. One by one, they burrow into his heart…but none more so than Dillon Young.
Always holding himself apart from the others, the wisp of a boy keeps his head down and hides behind a mangy, overgrown length of dark hair like a shield. Despite his best attempts not to see himself in all the young men that come through the center, everything about Dillon calls out to Red. Needing to share their encounters, and maybe hoping for a little perspective, he turns to the one man he knows he can always count on. Expecting Bull to be the voice of reason had been a fool’s mission from the start and soon they’re both invested in helping Dillon.
There’s no doubt they have an abundance of love to share and if ever there was someone who needed it, Dillon was the one. Between Bull’s strength and Red’s patience, they’ll help Dillon learn to trust again, and in the process, create a family that none of them intended. Though they never envisioned themselves as parents, Bull and Red will find room in their happily ever after to save the child they didn’t know lived in their hearts.
The Zebra Coalition® assists young people facing homelessness, bullying, isolation from their families, and physical, sexual and drug abuse with individualized programs to guide them to recovery and stability.
5 Stars from Stacy on Amazon – Another fabulous book by Jessie G. Even though Bull and Red never wanted to have children, clearly they have so much love between them, they are more than willing to share said love with Dillon. As always it was nice to catch up with the rest of the “Connor” family. Obviously, there is more than meets the eye with Rupert the fishing lawyer. I highly recommend reading this book. I suspect this is not the last we will be hearing from Rupert the fishing lawyer.
4 Stars from Miranda on Amazon – I love this series and this was a great addition. I love seeing our favorite characters again. I can’t wait for the next full length book.
5 Stars from Laura on Amazon – I love this series and the connected series as well. They are well written and easy to read. They grip you right from the start. So when I started this I was expecting to love it and was not disappointed. This story has one of the strongest couples I have ever read about. What I wasn’t expecting was to be bawling at the same time joyful. Bawling because a person was close to ending his life and joyful because that person found his reason. And to be able to help another find his way up and out of the depths of despair. I would recommend this book to anyone, with the caveat that they should start at the beginning and read them all.
