“Mike is the painfully straight man who made me realise I was painfully bi.”
After four years away, Mike returns to the Wild at Heart animal sanctuary for Oscar and Ryan’s wedding—only to run straight into Ezra, his old best friend. Dreading facing his ex-girlfriend at the wedding festivities, Mike jumps at the chance when Ezra jokes about going as his date. Little does he know that Ezra’s had a crush on him since more or less the day they met.
Being back in the safe haven of the wildlife sanctuary, Mike finds himself getting close to Ezra—too close, he realises, after an ill-timed kiss makes him panic about what he really wants from the man he once called his best friend. But the connection between them is real , and Mike can’t stop himself from going back for more.
It’s only supposed to be an experiment—a secret Mike’s keeping from the rest of the world. Except there’s always been something between them, and Mike’s just starting to realise what that really is, despite his homophobic, bullying father.
Can he come to terms with who he is in time to keep the best thing that’s ever happened to him? Or will he run away all over again in the face of having to live his truth?
Haven is the third book in the Wild at Heart series, but you can read them in whatever order you like. It has a HEA and does not contain a cliffhanger. It does, however, contain: a kestrel named after the Millennium Falcon, excessive amounts of mistletoe, a glittery pine cone, explicit sex scenes, Christmas lights, and true love conquering all.
