Oh my Keir, how much do I love you!
And Mitch, you utterly perfect rogue, you knew just what Keir needed and how to get him out of his own head.
I’ll just disclaimer here to say, as with the previous books, I alpha read this one and so it holds a very special place in my heart.
Even before I got involved with Con’s work, I’ve adored the lyrical way she writes and I think with His Haven, she’s hit the pinnacle of beautiful storytelling.
Keir is so in need of Mitch, even though he fights his hardest against the attraction. He’s wounded, hurting and so lost, even while he drives himself into his work to stop feeling lonely.
Mitch has spent his life caring for others, a youthful mistake giving him a lifetime of guilt he just can’t shake no matter how much his work as a brain trauma specialist PT gives back.
Theirs is a complex narrative, there’s lots going on with this story, but it’s all intertwined so neatly that the reader never gets lost in the process. There are obviously close ties to His Compass as Mitch is Justin’s full-time support, Keir is Nicky’s lawyer and biggest supporter.
We get to see more of their happy ending, and a brief flying visit with Jude and Rob, who are still fully loved up at their new bijou hotel venture.
The Cornish setting is as vivid as ever, The Haven and the people there are as much a part of the story as the landscape and the experiences Keir and Mitch go through. There’s humour, of course, which stops things ever getting too mawkish.
The His series has been wonderful, but Keir and Mitch are absolutely, hands down, my favourite pairing, although Charles and HHH (and yes I’m being sneaky with my insider knowledge of what’s coming next from Con 😁) are giving them a real run for the money atm.
Oh, and the wee Easter Egg in the Epilogue, that just caps it all off.
