I’m a bit speechless. This isn’t just a story, it’s so so much more. Talk about fate!
From the first page, I knew for sure this was something special.
After divorcing his husband, Beau returns to the small town where his father still lives.
Enough money to rent a place and not in a hurry to find work. He is a personal chef. One day a short ad holds his attention.
Maisie is looking for a chef for her son Jack to make him healthy dinners a few times a week.
Jack has been through heavy trauma and misses parts of what happened. He is way too thin and way too rude, lying on bed in the dark, away from life. Not at all the beautiful, kind, promising attorney from eight years ago, before it all went down.
Slowly Beau gains Jack’s trust.
Beau doesn’t only make delicious food he also seems to trigger something in Jack’s head.
This can work in Jack’s advantage or ruin him.
What a story, I can’t spoil here but believe me there is so much go
