David, Renewed by Diana Copland
Published by Dreamspinner Press Genres: Contemporary, MM
When interior designer David Snyder walked into the home he shared with Trevor Blackenship he didn’t expect to see his boyfriend with another man wrapped around his genitals. Packing his bags and walking away was the only way David could keep his pride intact.
It seemed like fate noticing a ‘for sale’ sign on a house down the street from his mother’s. David takes the plunge and realizes too late that he may have been a bit hasty. Apparently the movie ‘Money Pit’ took notes from the house David bought because everything is falling apart a day at a time.
Concerned after his mother is diagnosed with MS, Jackson Henry leaves a successful career in Seattle to return home to East Washington to help out. It’s a shock, an unpleasant one, to discover that bigotry is still alive and well after all these years in the construction world.
It’s so hard not to drool when David opens his front door to the handyman his mom recommended. The guy is gorgeous and luckily seems to know his stuff. The depressing rundown on repairs coincides with David’s flattened ego.
What begins as a friendship between the men blossoms into something much more powerful. David and Jackson are further bonded by the unpleasant acts of bigotry they face. On top of that, David is forced to deal with escalating problems from Trevor who can’t and won’t let go. Love is sometimes an uphill battle. It’s a good thing for David that Jackson is just the man to help him climb.
A thoroughly delightful romance. David, Renewed charms from beginning to end. The interior designer has a bruised heart and a broken home. Jackson is a godsend to both. This sexy, tender love story has a fresh, sweet plotline with well placed drama. Honest and real, David, Renewed hits the mark for a lovely tale.
