Publisher's Summary

Matt Bowers' life ended at 16, when a vicious betrayal by someone who he should have been able to trust left him a shell of himself, fighting OCD and PTSD, living in constant fear, and always running. When he buys a remote tract of land, he thinks he’s found the perfect place to hide from the world and attempt to establish some peace. For 10 years, he believes he’s found a measure of comfort, until the day a stranger begins to run on Matt’s road.

He returns every day, an unwelcome intrusion into Matt’s carefully structured life. Matt appeals to the local sheriff, who cannot help him since the jogger is doing nothing wrong. Gradually, after tentatively breaking the ice, Matt begins to accept the man’s presence.

But when the runner doesn’t show up one day, it throws Matt’s world into chaos, and he must make the hardest decision of his life.

A touching story

Oh wow! There are not many books that move me so much I would read (listen to)over and over but this is one. I loved both Matt and Charlie and even Clay Matt's brother. And this cover? Oh yes!

Matt has had a bad experience in high school that wrecked his life. Now he lives way out in the country alone. He has a bad case of OCD and PTSD. He doesn't deal with people at all, lives off his land, growing his own food, canning, freezing, etc. I admire Matt a lot. and yet my heart goes out to him.

A Runner begins running on his road and disrupts his schedule. He calls his brother Clay, the local sheriff, to get him to get the runner to stop.

This story is very heart-wrenching. I was sucked in from the beginning and couldn't put it down! I loved all the characters; I loved Matt and my heart went out to him. I could relate to him and wanted to hug him. I admired Charley but there was a twist that shocked me and I cried for Matt. The storyline is beautiful, the story well written and I highly, highly recommend this book to anyone that loves M/M contemporary romance!

I thought this couldn't be beaten, but listening to it was even better than reading. Patrick Zeller did a great job of keeping you engrossed in the story. I listened in one afternoon.
