It’s been months since the divorce went through. That doesn’t change the fact that Ellis Broad is still reeling, still trying to come to terms with the failure of his marriage. He never expected to be a single dad before the age of thirty.
Thankfully his career as a graphic designer makes it possible to work from home so that six month old Harrison’s life hasn’t been too disrupted by the loss of one parent. Ironically it was Ellis’s ex who pushed for parenthood and now he barely sees their son.
Ellis has been holed up in his apartment with Harrison for so long his friends begin to worry. Nudging him into taking an evening off while grandma watches the baby Ellis takes their attempt at matchmaking with good grace. He instantly loves the look of Zane Hadlin, an art student about to graduate. Their mutual interest in art gives them something to talk about and the sexual chemistry is undeniable. What starts out as a free and easy fling develops with the speed of a tsunami and it doesn’t hurt that Harrison and Zane adore each other. The last thing Ellis expected was to fall in love a second time. Then again, he wasn’t expecting his ex to start causing problems for the lovers. It’s all happening so fast, but it feels so right and worth fighting for.
Tender. Authentic. Sensual. A beautifully balanced story of honest relationships, the ups and downs and the hiccups in-between. Summer Son is a charmer. The characters are as real as it gets. For a breath of fresh air don’t miss Summer Son. Fall in love with Ellis, Zane, and Harrison too. Only criticism, it ended.
