Sometimes the best love stories come in two parts.
When Felix met handsome journalist Max Travers, it was lust at first sight. It was just his luck that he then had to develop a terrible case of feelings and got his heart broken.
However, two and a half years later, he’s over all of that. His job is going well, he has good friends, and he doesn’t lack for male company. Which, of course, is when Max has to come bursting back into his life.
Felix Jackson will always be the one who got away to Max. He’s spent their time apart regretting his actions and hoping for a second chance. When an accident lands him in Felix’s less than tender care, Max is determined to grab this opportunity. The only problem is that Felix is equally determined that he doesn’t.
From bestselling author Lily Morton comes a story of missed opportunities, second chances, and two very stubborn men.
This is the third book in the Close Proximity series, but it can be listened to as a standalone.

OMG, this book just blew me away, and I loved I loved this book so much, once I started it I could not put it down, the story did not just grab and captivate my attention the entire time but it tugged on my heartstrings too. Lily Morton is a gifted author, a master of snark and witty dialogue and her way with words is absolutely brilliant. Add that in with the amazing characters and storylines she created and you have this entertaining masterpiece of a story and if I could, I would rate it well above the allowed five star rating. I adored Felix Jackson and everything that came out of his mouth, a no filter, tells it like it is has a perfect response ready to go for any situation. A bubbling and colorful personality that can brighten anyone’s day and will definitely put a smile on your face and he did just that for Max Travers, a journalist visiting the bookstore where they first met. There was an instant attraction between them, neither were looking for love or a relationship, but they sure had some steamy hookups, hookups that happened more frequently and before Felix knew it he did what he said he never would, he developed feelings for Max. But he soon learns that Max was not upfront about everything and wound up breaking his heart. Max comes to grip and realizes how wrong he was about love, it took him a great loss to open his eyes and his heart, but it is too late, Felix hates him and is lost to him. But he soon learns that Max was not upfront about everything and wound up breaking his heart. Max comes to grips and realizes how wrong he was about love, and it took him a great loss to open his eyes and his heart, but it was too late, Felix wants nothing to do with him.

I loved how everything played out in this beautifully plotted second chance romance, the story has the perfect balance of drama, humor, heartfelt emotions and hot sexy times that are well written and done. Lily Morton, thank you for another amazing story, the laughs and the emotional rollercoaster ride.
