    Loved Jas and Kim's story

    Jas returns to Porthkennack after a devastating breakup that leaves him hesitant to get involved again. When he meets Kim at an outdoor fair, he's intrigued but wary. He's definitely attracted to Kim, but not quite ready for anything in the way of a relationship. Kim feels the attraction too, and when they hookup at a concert where Jas is taking photos, it's the beginning of a tense friendship / relationship/ ???. Neither Jas or Kim is quite sure. One thing is for certain, and that's Kim has some past difficulties with addiction, and he's also got something going with Lena, the red-haired singer and tattoo artist where Kim also works. I thought this was a very emotional, albeit quiet tale of two men finding each other and figuring out just what that means. Jas is concerned after finding out about Lena, because of the heartbreak caused by his former lover. And Kim has problems with alcoholism and depression that make him not the easiest person to connect with. I loved all that about this story. Jas and Kim are complex humans searching for something/someone to stave off the loneliness they feel. This is my second Porthkennack book and I loved it! There's a lot of charm in this little seaside community, and that also translates to the dialect of the characters which makes reading this seem like a mini-vacation to the Cornish seaside town. This is what draws me back to this series. These characters carry their scars unapologetically, and I love that about them too. I should give a warning that there's quite a bit of talk about depression and addiction in this tale, and that may be triggering for some readers. I know I felt it deeply and I'm sure it will hit home for other readers. I loved Jas and Kim's story. It didn't have a huge amount of conflict because most of that was very internal. This was a quick read, and only took a couple of days to finish. Overall, I'd recommend this if you are interested in reading an M/M romance about learning to live with past mistakes and finding a way to embrace the promise of a happy future. An ARC was provided for review.
