Yet another series of poor decisions lands Parker Levin back in his mother’s house, working at her coffee shop, and feeling like a failure. Then he learns his ex-boyfriend has died by suicide and things go from bad to worse. When he meets a handsome stranger, he doesn’t have much left to lose.
Ten years ago Wesley Anker made a grave mistake. Since then he’s lived in near isolation, supporting himself by making custom furniture and only rarely connecting with other people. When he attempts to make amends, he encounters Parker, a beautiful and colorful young man, and he agrees to Parker’s impulsive request to join him.
Together, Parker and Wes find quick friendship and fierce attraction. But Wes’s past demons haunt his footsteps, and Parker’s struggle to plan a future has him stumbling through life. Then they uncover evidence that suggests Parker’s ex’s death might not have been a straightforward suicide, and every path seems to lead to dead ends and destruction. Can Parker and Wes find their way to lasting love when the route is hidden?

This is the third book in the Love Can’t series but each of them can be read as stand alone books. There are characters that cross over, but the focus is on different couples. In this one, Kim Fielding created one of my favorite characters in Parker Levin. He is a true flibbertigibbet. He has never found his place, but always returns to the safety of his mom and her coffee shop when the world gets too big or too mean for his gentle heart. Then Wesley Anker enters Parker’s life. Wes has hidden himself in his solitary life because of a mistake when he was a cop. Saying he is sorry leads him to Parker and opens him up to more than he ever dreamed. These two see each other in such a beautiful and unique way. With their pasts, their well intentioned friends, and a mystery around Parker’s ex all seeming to be on a path to keep them apart, the fact that these two fight so hard to be the best they can for the other is truly inspiring. This story is a great addition to this series. It keeps you invested in these flawed and beautiful men from the first page.
