My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I had forgotten just how beautifully Con Riley lays down the various threads of her stories as she weaves a gorgeous picture of new beginnings, first loves and family forgiveness in this truly wonderful book.
Even though this was her first release, there’s no stumbling narrative, everything is cleverly crafted to give the reader one man’s journey from the depths of sorrow and despair into a brighter future.
The Ben of the title is as much a character as both Theo and Morgan are but his presence never detracts from the new romance.
Instead, he acts as the anchor which Theo can eventually release to let himself move on with Morgan.
There’s also a glorious mini office romance between two of Theo’s interns which gives some light relief along the way.
If you missed this book when it was first published, don’t miss out on this re-release. It remains one of my favourite books dealing with moving on after the death of a long term partner.
The rest of the series is also pretty awesome and they’re all being re-released soon too.
