A poignant tale of two hearts valiantly fighting to stay true and find love.
Sawyer Morgan has a secret. Revealing his true feelings to his family has the potential to devastate, so he keeps the burden firmly on his own shoulders. When he moves back to Torey Hope to help with the family business, Sawyer’s hidden truth becomes too much to bear.
Luke Hamilton has a past overflowing with emotional and physical scars. A promise to his dying mother prevents him from seeking the love and acceptance he longs for. Taking a job in Torey Hope brings Luke face-to-face with desires he thought long extinguished.
Secrets, lies, hatred, and fear threaten to destroy their lives. But love has the power to overcome and lay claim to victory. Will Sawyer succeed in proving to Luke some connections are worth fighting for?
*Sawyer is a steamy M/M romance. Readers sensitive to references of an abusive past, hate crimes, and derogatory words should take note.*
This story has been revised and polished since its original publication.
So much more than a male/male story
For those who adore male/male stories, like me.....this is beyond perfect. But even for those who have never picked up a male/male story this book will warm your heart and make you truly believe that everyone deserves to be happy and be loved. Beautiful.
Don’t let the description turn you away!

I have loved each and every Torey Hope story that author A.D. Ellis has written - and this may be my most absolute favorite one yet!! I love Sawyer, his kindness, his sense of family and his struggle with himself to be true to himself. The author really makes the characters become a part of your family and you feel like you are at The Center+ right along with them.
Author A.D. Ellis weaves a magical tale of love, family, small towns and big dreams and it makes the reader instantly fall in love with it all. The reader can dive right into this series and feel like they are spending time with friends that they have had forever. The reader feels connected and a part of the story and it is with complete sadness each time they reach the end of the book. I never want the story to stop, but yet it must and I must be ok with waiting for the next one to come out. Each character/family member in the story becomes a favorite and the reader laughs, cries, yells, and cheers for them as they are running through the entire gamut of emotions that the author evokes.
This series is a can't miss and is a must for all readers!! The way the author tackles the harder issues in life makes the reader feel admiration and respect for her as she is so careful and so educated about them. The reader feels an instant kinship with the author based on her telling of the story and each story is a bit better than the last (even though it seems impossible). Run to the amazon app and one-click or order all of the books in this series - they will leave you wanting more each time!! Enjoy this one and all of the others as they are bound to be instant favorites!!
It was surprisingly hot, sad and so hopeful!! I loved this one so much for so many different reasons! One for the fact that this family has been through so much and I was going to be so heartbroken if it got torn apart! But of course they pulled through and showed why they are such a strong family!!! My love for Sawyers big heart grew so much and I'm so happy that he found love!!!! What a great story!!!!
