"[...] it kept me on my toes and Mateo in particular was a well thought out and complex character. The author manages to change your opinion about him more than once. Liking him, disliking him, liking him again. really quite good. Writing-wise the book is top notch. Very well written throughout. I'm hopeful to see more from this author soon." - Reader Review
About the Book

Years pass and, as the novel opens, Mateo has come of age. He’s twenty-nine and a rock star on the literary scene. He is, for the most part, living a happy life, surrounded by the people who matter to him most — Simon Denault, his partner of five years; Melinda Borden-Grey, his feisty older sister; Zane Grey, Melinda’s even-tempered husband; and his precocious nephew, Xavier.
Until a call in the middle of the night puts Mateo on a collision course with his past, and leads to two life-altering reunions — one with his dying father, Peter; the other with Liam, who has quietly returned home.
