He’s nobody’s definition of Mr. Right—but that might make him perfect.
Matthew Hart is heir to the family fortune and owner of Hart & Home. When a near-death experience has him fretting over the future, he decides he needs a husband, and not just any husband—an appropriate man to protect the Hart legacy. The last thing Matthew expects is to cross paths with Jax Foster, his first love and the boy who crushed his heart when he disappeared.
Jax is unlikely to make Matthew’s list of suitable candidates. Bad boy, vagabond, deep in debt, with a father who can’t keep out of trouble, Jax has nothing to offer—except his heart and a second chance at the romance they never got to explore.
Well, this is definitely not THIRDS …
This story of Matthew and Jex is not what we’re used from Charlie. I was expecting more badasserie. Although these guys warmed my heart.
Matthew has everything he desires. A well running and famous business, a loving and supporting family and an assistant who would go through fire for him. Although something is missing and he’s confessing this to his assistant. He makes a list how Mr. Right should be, a Mr. Right he can marry. During this “interrogation” led by his assistant, Matthew admits his first love. And if he is honest with himself, he never really got over Jex.
Matthew was a teenager when Jex came into his life. They clicked from the very beginning. Then an unknown event to Matthew happened, and Jex disappeared without any trace.
Now several years later, Matthew still hung upon his first love, and in order for him to move on, he must let go his past.
Hart & Home is at the launch of their new service, where they offer very high-quality art. Matthew’s father is retired, but he helps with this project bringing Jex back into Matthew’s life.
When Jex meets Matthew again, he is determined to not let him go again. We learn the reason of Jex’s sudden disappearance. But it seems the problems of the past won’t stay in the past. Now Jex needs to prove to Matthew that sometimes, the apple is falling way more far from the tree.
When I was young, I grew up reading my mother’s Harlequin series—he’s rich, she’s desperate and a bit naïve, well and of course a virgin. Although nor Jex nor Matthew are virgins in this story, the feeling of the book let me think that I’m back in those times, but instead of him and her, it’s a him and him story.
I highly recommend this book for all those who like sappy romantic MM stories!
