Summary: Sometimes home is what two hearts make of it.

After fifteen years on the road, rock singer Saul Wilder doesn’t know if he remembers how to stay in one place. While healing from a vocal cord injury, he decides to restore the cozy but neglected Atlanta home his grandmother left him. When home renovation specialist Perry Abrams arrives to assess the job, Saul’s on board with mixing business with a little pleasure. The sex is scorching hot, but the more they learn about each other, the deeper they fall emotionally as well. Trouble is, Saul’s a traveling man and Perry’s a homebody, so finding common ground to share could put the brakes on their relationship before it has a chance to get started.
Review: Saul is a rock star who has had a vocal cord injury requiring no singing, little talking, meds, therapy and a forced hiatus from the band. He retreats to his grandmother’s old house to recuperate and while he’s there he will restore the house to sell it. His manager, Lewis, has set up an appointment with the local restoration expert, Perry.
Perry loves the history of the place and has many ideas to make it lovely. He’s building up his own business and takes care and pride in his work. He also fascinates Saul, even as they try to keep business and pleasure separate. As they begin to learn about each other, it is sweet. The very idea of Perry in eyeliner, lip gloss and stockings with garter steams up the pages. These boys are hot.
Both men have issues from their past, but Perry’s causes a little more upset between the two. A misunderstanding that actually made sense.
The problem of course is eventually Saul is going to be able to sing again and go back on tour with his band, while Perry is very firmly settled in Atlanta. How can they reconcile it?
The story is fairly short, 165 pages on my iPad, and I enjoyed it all.
