Publisher's Summary

Callum

A gay guy walks into a straight bar and notices the hottest man he’s ever seen...

Why am I not surprised my life sounds like the beginning of a bad joke? First, my ex cheated on me, and I went running to Havenwood and the mom I have a complicated relationship with. Then, there’s Knox, the gorgeous lumberjack I don’t stand a chance with. To top it off, he’s more than just a pretty face, and I start to fall for him. Knox is kind, funny, honorable, quickly becoming my best friend, and unfortunately, straight with a capital S.

Knox

My life has taken a few unexpected turns lately. First, the new guy in town, Callum, has me strangely confused. Then my son, Logan, comes to live with me. He connects with Callum instantly, and I do too. Before we know it, he’s become a daily fixture in our lives, making us laugh, calling me his lumberjack and making this foreign warmth spread inside me.

It doesn’t matter that I’ve never been with a guy before - one kiss from Cal, and it’s clear I’m bi. He turns me upside down. With every laugh, every conversation, every touch and exploration, I fall harder. Sneaking around isn’t ideal, but there’s a lot for us to consider. All I know is I need him. Life has a funny way of throwing a wrench into your plans, though, and things become a mess. But then I’m reminded that while nothing in life is guaranteed, not even love, what Callum and I have built is worth fighting for.

Best of the Series!

I would give this more than 5 stars if I could. I really enjoyed delving into Knox and Callum's world. Although this book had a lot less of the friends aspect than the others in the series, I enjoyed how the relationship developed between Callum and his Mom and Callum and Logan.

Best Family Dynamic? Absolutely!

I have read and listened to this book many times. Why? Because this book is the *friggin* best!! I love the family dynamic the most and the love between Knox and Callum is just to die for.
The narrator is also really great 👍! Well done.

I’m not crying... you are!

Finally!!! A narrator that knows how to talk and tell a story! The story was really good, too! First one I’ve read that balanced the intricate life of a divorced LGBTQ+ parent!

Hot Knox

This is definitely my favorite of the series so far. I was sad when it ended. I absolutely loved Knox and Cal. I loved the interactions between them and seeing the relationship go from friends to more. Everything was perfectly done especially the way Cal was with Logan. It was great getting glimpses of the other from the series. I can't wait to listen to Griff and Josh's story. The narration was so perfect!

Nice story low angst

I really enjoyed this audio. Perfect when you’re in the mood for something with wonderful warm characters, very low angst and a nice story. Somewhat predictable, but that’s OK. As always Kale Williams is a wonderful narrator.

Delightful

Narrator was perfect for the situation and the characters. Another home run for author. Looking forward to others in this series. Thank God no one in this relationship did the I’m so worthless he can’t possibly love me garbage! So refreshing.

Not for me

I really tried to finish the book but had to quit about 1/2 way thru. The story was fine, not really what I like in M/M romance, but a lot of people do. I prefer more substance to the story and the men. Maybe it was the narrator. He put a soft touch to both MC's voices and it just didn't match what I imagined when I read the book. Anyway, couldn't stand it anymore.

My Favorite!

I have listened to this book 6 times now, and it never gets old. The story is just the best. Not overdone in areas that typically are, and character development that seems realistic. Thanks for this one. I’m sure I will read it many more times than this past one lol

Cute

Cute story, amazing chemistry between them and great descriptions. A bit too family-time for me, there's more bonding between Cal-Nox with the kid Logan than with each other. it turns boring and repetitive after a while.
Also Charlie is the reason why I hate children, she's annoying as fuck.

Oh Wow!!! 😍🔥🔥🔥

I've loved all of the Havenwood series but Knox and Callum were my favourites. You could feel the raw emotions that Knox was going through. It had all the 'feels' going on. Laughed, cried... Melting moments!
I Loved everything about this book. The Narrator portrayed each character amazingly and I will be reading it again soon.
Thank you x

Loved it!

Always love books by Riley Hart but this one just tugged at my heartstrings. Made me realise I love this trope of Bi awakening. On to Griff’s story now!

Sweet

Sweet, angst-free, mixed-family love story. Love the characters and the friendships. Slow-burn. Normal life stuff isn't my usual thing, but I enjoyed it. Awesome for angst-free daydream escapism.
