There are few things I enjoy more than a good redemption story. Unless it is a good redemption story, with romantic tension and super hot sex as a pay off! Wood and Trent are the latest of A E Via's blue collar heroes. It is refreshing to see real characters dealing with real life issues instead of the brooding billionaires throwing cash at problems. This is an engaging story with men fighting to escape their pasts and to build a life together.

“Oh fuck you,” Trent snarled. Wood’s expression flipped from smug to challenging instantly. “Oh I plan to,” Wood retorted, pulling off his sweater and T-shirt and letting it fall from his fingers. “Tonight, tomorrow, and every damn time I want it after that.”

“What was that you just read that has you all hot and bothered now? Don’t freakin’ tell me Wood left you a sexy note in your lunchbox.” Summer gazed off as if she were watching a herd of unicorns gallop over a rainbow. “That’s called old-school romance right there. You lucky motherfucker.”

From The Publisher

Synopsis

It’s been a long seventeen years but Herschel Wood Jr. is finally a free man and he’s looking forward to reconnecting with his old cellmate, Bishop Stockley, who promised him a place to stay and some help getting back on his feet. Wood had a good life once upon time when he’d owned one of the most successful tattoo shops on the Virginia Beach Oceanfront – until a fatal accident that was his fault cost him everything.Now at forty-six years old, all Wood wants is to work in another shop on the beach and find a mature, easygoing man to settle down with. But when he gets to his new place and finds he has to share the small trailer with Bishop’s childhood friend, he wasn’t expecting a sexy, smart-mouthed brat that enjoys pushing a man to his limits.Wood pressed in so tight until there was only air and misunderstanding between them, his mouth mere inches from Trent’s parted lips. “You wanted to get a reaction out of me you annoying, immature little shit… now you’ve got one.”Trent Armstrong has never been considered a catch. He’s a twenty-nine year old laborer, an ex-con, and not the easiest person to get along with. Everyone he’s ever cared for has walked out of his life without a backward glance, so he’s used to the loneliness. His foul mouth and quick temper are a great defense mechanism and a good way to keep unwanted people away.From the moment the tattooed, silver-haired man walked into the house there had been nothing but tension, side-eyeing, and sparks between them. Trent has always held back a side of himself that he’s nervous to explore, and without warning Wood’s voice, his maturity, that maddening scent, and even his damaged past all trigger feelings that Trent thought he’d buried long ago.Trent went completely still when Wood dragged his nose over his forehead and down the side of his face. His voice was shaky, and his breaths were hot and swift along Wood’s throat. “What the hell are you doing?”“I’m doing what you want me to do.” Wood whispered. “I’m playing your bullshit game, Trent.”The True Lover's Stories are connected standalones. Each title features a different couple but will contain previously mentioned characters.No multiple pairings. No cliffhanger. Ends with a HEA.Note: This is a steaming angsty, age gap, new-to-love romance.
