Escaping an abusive relationship left Luke Preston anxious and spouting panic-induced poetry. Desperate for a fresh start, Luke accepts a job remodeling a tired old beach house for a professional soccer player and his model girlfriend. While his passion is literature, not sports, focusing on the renovations eases his anxiety. Until the job he signed up for turns out to be more complicated than advertised.

About the Author
Lane Hayes is grateful to finally be doing what she loves best. Writing full time! It's no secret Lane loves a good romance novel. An avid reader from an early age, she has always been drawn to a well-told love story with beautifully written characters. These days she prefers the leading roles to both be men. Lane discovered the M/M genre a few years ago and was instantly hooked. Her debut novel, Better Than Good, was a 2013 Rainbow Awards Finalist and her third in the Better Than Stories, Better Than Friends, received an Honorable Mention in the 2014 Rainbow Awards. Lane loves red wine, chocolate and travel, in no particular order (on second thought, maybe wine first). She resides in Southern California with her amazing husband and a regal old yellow Lab in an almost empty nest.

Independent reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted my copy via them for review.
Luke gets a job renovating a house for a football player and his soon-to-be fiancée. But not all is as it seems and Luke finds himself falling head over heels for Michael. Not everyone wants them to be happy though.
I liked this. It wasn't too complicated, too deep a read, but had just enough of each to make it a good read.
What it lacked, for me, was two things.
1. only Luke gets a say, its written in the first person and only from his point of view. I will ALWAYS say I need more when I only get one POV. Even in the first person, multiple POV's is much better than single, for me, anyway.
2. I needed more about Luke abusive relationship. I felt that we weren't getting the full picture, the whole story about that and I would like to have had some greater insight.
I loved the build up to Luke and Michael getting together, its all so cute and very well written. There is steam, lots of steam, but equally, passion, and emotion, even if it is just from Luke. I didn't like the way Michael's manager made it sound like the football fans would hate him if he came out, really did not like him at all. But it all worked out okay, and there is a happy ever after here.
I loved Brandon, Luke's best friend. He has a book too, I'd like to read it at some point.
