4.5 stars. I loved this novella. For those who enjoyed Quinn's Hart, this one involves Clay from that story who didn't come across all that great. Well, I'm glad Clay got his own story and we really got to know him because I loved him. Clay decides to challenge himself on a nature adventure and meets Trent, who is overcoming extreme job difficulties. They end up pairing up and connecting. Trent helps Clay get his confidence back about who he is and Clay helps Trent recover from his trauma. We even get a little bondage scene
. These guys were adorable.
The ONLY thing that kept this from a 5 star read was the ending. I wish we could have gotten Trent's POV a little as he was the one struggling with coming out and an epilogue on how they guys were doing 6 months or a year later.
