Rory Kendrick watches the news, sees every hour of the disaster unfold and somehow just knows that Lachlan was in the middle of it all. What he doesn’t know is that Lachlan will be forced to come back home to hide and to heal. Lachlan needs a friend, not a lover, but sometimes the lines are just too blurred to make any sense.
Retrograde, Flight HA1710 by R.J. Scott was a touching and soulful story of friends to lovers~ those who lost their way, but always come home again. Lachlan and Rory have been together since they were small children. Destined to find true happiness and love in each other’s arms, the two men part when the paths of their lives take very different directions. Tragedy strikes and both men realize and prove to themselves and each other that friendship, love and security are more important than what the world can throw at them.
Ms. Scott delivered heart-wrenching drama as the words flew off the pages, grasping my heart and squeezing until I needed to know that all would end well for these two loving, hard-working men. Every emotional turmoil Rory and Lachlan experienced was delivered with tenacity and angst as Ms. Scott conveyed sincerity, internal doubt and conflict through their words. The desire to crawl into the story and wrap both men in my arms rode this reader hard, needing the story to end with an HEA. Thank you Ms. Scott for not disappointing me and your fans.
As always, Ms. Scott’s realism and energy transfers the reader to a timeless place of friendship and love. I look forward to the rest of the series.
