Caddock ‘The Brute’ Stanford lost his brother and rugby career within the same year. The once man-about-town is now a has-been and guardian to his young nephew. Not sure where life will go after the scrum, he decides to purchase a pub in the Cornwall village of Looe. He never expects to fall in lust—and then love.

Francis Keen hides his crippling anxiety behind his eccentric habits, lush interior design, and beloved dog, Sherlock. Alone by choice after an attack in college left him emotionally scarred, he lives by the sea with his gran, resigned to working small jobs for local businesses. Revamping the pub for the new owner is right up his alley—especially when he realizes who the owner is.

Two men, so different, on track for a romantic collision. Can they survive the impact?
Review by: Jennifer
(3.5 stars)

Retired rugby player, Caddock, is now the guardian of his nephew. Trying to handle being retired and a four year old, Caddock decides that a new start is what is in order. Moving to a small seaside town and opening a pub is what Caddock decides.

Francis is the interior decorator that Caddock hired, and their first meeting has them both walking away thinking of the other.

This was story of starting over and giving love a chance.  Not normally my type of read, I need more meat and potatoes so to speak, it was an ok read. I was left wanting more from the sexy times, more from the couple themselves. I give this 3.5 stars.


Dahlia Donovan wrote her first romance series after a crazy dream about shifters and damsels in distress. She prefers irreverent humour and unconventional characters. An autistic and occasional hermit, her life wouldn’t be complete without her husband and her massive collection of books and video games.
