Twenty years ago, Paxton Marshall realized he liked boys, in particular his brother’s best friend, Brad. Pax now runs a successful art gallery, but he’s never found anyone who stirs his heart the way Brad did.
Brad Watson is back in town for his twentieth high school reunion. However, the celebration of long-ago days is the last thing on his mind. He’s there for one reason: to finally tell Pax how he feels.
Pax is shocked to learn Brad is not only gay but also interested in him. Dating a man in Ames Bridge isn’t as simple as it sound, though. In order to make a relationship work, both men will have to bolster their courage and alter their expectations.
The Past Comes Home by Silvia Violet was a beautiful read of loss and love. The past always catches up to you and Ms. Violet’s second book in The Ames Bridge series delivered a heartfelt rendition.
Brad and Paxton have known each other almost forever, especially since Brad’s brother was Pax’s best friend. Tragedy brought them back together after years of separation, only fueling the feelings Pax harbored for Brad.
What I most enjoyed amongst so many things in this book was the chemistry Pax and Brad displayed in their passion for each other and their desire to create a life- always thinking about the other first.
They were sweet and caring and their true personalities shown through as the author carefully penned their lives, allowing the reader to become a part of their destiny.
A standalone in the series, The Past Comes Home will make your heart swell and place a smile on your face.
