Blurb: Will a ghost from Colton’s past remind him of his love for Valentine?
Colton hates Valentines and everything that goes with it. Lane has been his friend and confident for the last five years but he just can’t bring himself to admit the love he has for Colt. One night a ghost of a former lover appears to Colton and shows him not only how much he loved Valentine’s Day but how if he doesn’t change his ways he could be heading to an tragic ending. Will Colton write his own Happy Ever After or will he let his own personal demons drag down himself and the one who would love him.
Review: Colt is visited by the ghost of his ex-lover Mike, a policeman shot in the line of duty, which has left Colt hating Valentine’s Day ever since. This reminded me of a mix of Scrooge and It’s a Wonderful Life with the ghost of Mike showing Colt their past and the reason he died, the present and Lanes’s unspoken love for Colt, and the tragic future for Lane that might be if things continue as they are.
If you like, a sweet tale with the promise of second chances at love, this is for you
