to know Patrick, Sean is certain he wants more from the
relationship, only their pasts seems to be getting in the
way of their future.
Rover was really good. It took me a bit to get
fully involved with the story, however, once I got into it I
really enjoyed it. Sean was an open and loving person who
wasn’t afraid of showing his feelings, while Patrick was
leery of allowing anyone to get too close. I would have
thought their personalities would have been flipped because
of their pasts. Both were hurt, but in very different ways,
so it surprised me that Sean was the more trusting one in
the relationship. Patrick and Sean were very compatible and
the age gap between them was not an issue. The major
obstacle for them to overcome was the ghosts of their pasts
haunting them. For Sean, his ghost was alive and very
determined, while Patrick’s were the memories of his
deceased lover, Douglas. I really enjoyed both their family
units as they came from very supportive families and that
was a big positive for me in reading this story. People
looking for a hot romance with a bit of angst and a touch of
suspense will enjoy Rover.
