The past doesn't define us. But love does.

When high school principal, William Garrison, steps in to help a bullied freshman boy, he is surprised to learn that fifteen-year-old Ben is the son of his former high school nemesis, Benito "Benny" Vega.

William has mixed feelings about seeing Benny again, considering Benny was the one who used to torment and pick on William for being different. But Benny is a changed man, in more ways than one, and he wants the chance to prove to both his son and William that he's not the same guy he once was.

Can William be the bigger man and let go of his unresolved feelings toward Benny or will their shared personal history get in the way of helping Ben?

After all, love always wins, right?

This is a standalone book in the Blockers Series, a MM romance.

MM, opposites attract, forbidden romance

William and Benny's story is one of redemption and second chances at proving that time and perseverance can change a person.

William helps Ben, one of the students at his school, who is being bullied. William requests that Ben bring his father to meet him and the last person he expected to walk through his door was Benny from the Block, his high school bully.

I enjoyed William and Benny's story. William and Benny both did a fair amount of growing in their story. The chemistry and connection between them when they were together was hot. I feel the book could have done with maybe a few extra chapters. A trigger warning against homophobia and assault.

Benny from the Block was my first K.C. Kassidy book and I am looking forward to reading more from her in the future.
