5/5 Review: Rain Shadow by L.A. Witt


 
Jeremy Rose came to Bluewater Bay to work as Anna Maxwell's bodyguard, not to escape his increasingly bitter relationship with his estranged kids. He just wants to focus on his job and be alone for a while. He's done with love, especially now that three years after his long overdue divorce, he's got a front-row seat to the rapid deterioration between Anna and her girlfriend. Cynical doesn't even begin to describe him.

Then Anna and Leigh's attempts to reconcile put him in the crosshairs of marriage counselor Scott Fletcher. Scott's exactly what Jeremy needs right now: gorgeous, hot, horny, single, and 100% uninterested in a relationship. The problem is, too much no-strings-attached sex — and too much time in each other's company — inevitably builds emotional connection.

Except Jeremy refuses to seek counseling for his broken family, and Scott refuses to get seriously involved with men who work dangerous jobs. They both need to realize they can only hide for so long from the pain they came here to escape. They must face their pasts before they lose their shot at a happy future.

Rain Shadow by L.A Witt is another great read!! Jeremy is a personal bodyguard to a director of a hit tv show.  He moved to Washington for the show (or that is what he tells himself) and left behind his ex-wife and two teenage children.  He accepted the fact that he was gay at an older age than most men.  He was already married and had two children.  Jeremy and his wife waited for a long time before mentioning to the children why they divorced and it blew up in their faces.  The children of course felt betrayed by Jeremy, so they really want nothing to do with him.  He convinces himself that he isn’t running away from his problems, but when he meets Scott he is shown that he really is hiding from his problems.  Scott is a family counselor who works in the same office where Jeremy’s charge sees her own therapist.  They meet while on a tour to see eagles and connect immediately.  They regret not exchanging information and think that they missed a chance at something good.  When they run into each other at the office Scott takes the initiative and gives Jeremey his contact information.  When they start to get together it is with the understanding that it is sex and sex alone, but they soon begin to be more for each other.  I loved Jeremy and Scott.  They flowed together so beautifully.  The chemistry between them is great and the interactions are amazing to read.  L.A Witt doesn’t disappoint and I can’t wait to read more books by this author.  I give this book 5 stars and would give more if I could.
