Blurb: To honor his grandmother’s final request, Trenton Appleton drops everything to visit the family’s ancestral home: Hummingbird House, where he experienced his first kiss and first heartbreak with Callum Eason.

Eight years ago, confused by his attraction to Trent, Callum reacted badly. But with help he never expected, Callum found himself and learned to accept who he was.

Now Trent is back at Hummingbird House, and Callum has his opportunity to salvage their friendship, at least. But Trent is less receptive than he was all those years ago. Still, Callum is determined to show Trent he has changed and keep his promise to Trent’s grandmother. When past mistakes repeat themselves, Callum must break the cycle before his last chance with Trent passes him by.

A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2014 Advent Calendar package “Celebrate!”.

Review: Trent has given up most of his adult life to take care of his grandmother who has Alzheimer. He hasn’t been able to make relationships work since taking care of her is time-consuming. She left him her home in England and a request for him to take her ashes back there. He loves the home but it brings back memories of a childhood love.

This is a beautiful, emotional story. I liked that even young, Trent took the responsibility and tackled it head on. I loved the unfolding story of his grandmother through letters and the connection with his childhood first love. I will say it’s written in first person on Trent’s view then once in England Callum’s view is added in third person. I liked having Callum’s view but the switch from first to third was a bit confusing at times. Having said that I loved the story.

If you like sweet romance, emotional stories and some sensual man-love this is for you!
