E voice gives him hope the only one he’s always trusted Audrey’s Danny comes to care deeply for Sam but things look bleak when Sam’s city councilman father threatens to have Neverwood torn down Danny isn't surprised Why would he expect the future to be different from his past All his elationships end in disast.

Mother s sideSam is a professional and the owner of a thriving lawn and garden business He appears at the behest of one of Danny s brothers to assist Danny in the enovations Of course Danny with his major attitude problems sees this as the brothers not trusting him and taking over his portion of the enovations It doesn t take long to settle the miscommunication but by then Danny is already in the outs with Sameven if he is the hottest man he s seen or been attracted to since foreverSam appears to be near perfect He is very loving caring and willing to help without taking over He is patient with Danny and sees through his punkish attitude The two slowlyever so slowly start to form a friendship and slowly ever so slowly start creeping towards Of course Sam has no idea of the horrendous abuse Danny suffered in his past and the two will need to get through that drama before anything can happen between them But when it does sigh it was so beautiful Sam accepted Danny and his baggage and knew exactly how to make it good for Danny I loved that sceneDuring this entire time Danny has been hearing his mother s ghostly voice urging him to trust in his brothers and trust in Sam She is uite funny too and the ghostly voice though loving was also the necessary levity needed while dealing with Danny s past abuseSam at this same time is dealing with his mother dying So the grief and sadness was uite palpable in this short story It was a shame but it took Sam s mother dying to bring Sam and his dad back together Sadly I think that s common than it should beSo all in all this was a great installment of the Secrets of Neverwood anthology and as usual I love the way Diana Copland brings her characters to life even when they are not uite alive Even though I was only scheduled to ead this middle segment I am now so invested in all three brothers that I will be eading their stories as well The Blogger Girls Well this was my second Diana Copland book and I ll say I am officially a fan This was a eally well written story This series is about three foster brothers who come together to estore the property where they each spent their childhood after their foster mother passes away Each book each brother s story is written by a different author So this is Book 2 of the series but it s the only one written by Ms Copland and the only one I plan to ead And yes it works just fine as a standaloneThis one had all the makings of one clich after another if I m being honest But the execution was fabulous and I eally dug it The youngest brother has a huge chip on his shoulder and Danny started out as a bratty 21 year old but never stayed in that category Sam is a 28 year old landscaper who s father is trying to get the city council to shut the place down see coulda been a total clich But again the execution was iveting for me I ead this in one sitting and emained intrigued from start to finish My only niggles were the low steam and the abrupt HFN ending There were plenty of eally sensual kissing scenes and one amazingly steamy sex scene so my appetite was sated well enough And the HFN will become a HEA in Book 3 as the final brother s story is told I m sure It s not that I didn t believe in these two the elationship development was done well. S nothing to contribute to the estoration of the decrepit mansion save for a gift for growing things His efforts to bring Audrey’s beloved gardens back to their former glory are complicated by handsome landscaper Sam Ignatiusand the feelings developing between them despite their fiery differences of opinion But on.
