Blurb: This is book three in the Thomas Elkin series.
Designing homes is easy. Finding home is something else entirely.
Thomas Elkin and Cooper Jones finally have the support of their families, and their love grows stronger every day. Now living together, they think nothing can stand in their way.
But there are outside influences trying to pull them apart.
Cooper encounters a man, closer to his age and with connections high up the property development chain, who wants Cooper as his own. Tom encounters discrimination and a hidden agenda from a fellow senior partner who’s trying to take him down.
No matter what the world throws at them, Tom and Cooper are the real deal. Age differences aside, Tom has finally found his sense of place. His one true centre, his home.

Review: This book is where Cooper once again proves his metal! I don’t think I can fall in love with this guy, well and Tom too, any more than I already had…but Walker proves me wrong.
Faced with temptations, pressure from friends and family, and a budding career, Cooper is tested; his loyalty, his ability to stand strong for his needs, and sometimes yes his patience. Tom is faced with the impossible situation of handing jealousy, does he go caveman and claim his property, show more possessive tendencies, or does he give Tom space to handle his new admirer himself? Either way he seems to get it wrong…until he gets it right! And I love that scene at Xavier and Tom’s last encounter…architectural references and all! Damn! That was just too hot for words! Beyond the jealousy, Tom is faced with life changing decisions both in his career and his love life, and Cooper’s puzzling word games often times aggravate the situation, until Cooper’s mom decodes it for Tom.
In addition to all the relationship and career changes in this book, both Tom and Cooper are faces with major choices affecting their love life too. But don’t worry; the chemistry between these two is still immense and satisfying to the highest degree. It’s so refreshing to read passionate scenes that just click; they’re powerful without too much porn lingo, no need because these characters are so strong.
This is a great series, I’m thrilled to see what wonderful turns this couple takes, and it’s been a pleasure to read!
