Rock Solid (Rock Solid Construction #1) by Riley Hart
Trevor Dixon has made too many mistakes to count. Sober for thirteen months, he’s determined to do the right thing: rebuild his relationship with his family, and help his brother get Rock Solid Construction off the ground. Failing them again isn’t an option. Too bad the first estimate Trevor goes on alone is for an uptight doctor with a superiority complex.
A hand injury took away the only important thing in Dr. Simon Malone’s life—performing heart surgery. He doesn’t do well with people and has no family, but being a damn good surgeon? He always had that. Now, he doesn’t know who he is. The last thing he wants to deal with is the young construction worker who blows his shot at remodeling Simon’s home.
Trevor and Simon form an unlikely friendship. The more time they spend together, the more Trevor starts wondering if maybe Simon’s not as straight—or uptight—as he thought…and maybe Trevor’s new attraction for Simon runs both ways.
There are too many reasons they shouldn’t be together: they have little in common, their age difference, Trevor needing to focus on his sobriety…yet there’s something about each other that they just can’t shake. They don’t feel so lost when they’re together. But with their footing so unsteady, forming a relationship that’s rock solid seems impossible. There’s blow after blow, and the last one just might be powerful enough to crack their foundation for good.
Simon and Trevor couldn't be more different. From their age to their upbringing, to their occupations.
But one thing they do have in common is an underlying sadness. They're both plagued with a sense of disappointment. They're both struggling to find themselves.
Trevor is young, tatted and pierced! Delicious!
He's also charismatic, blunt and outgoing.
Simon is older, refined, and okay, a bit boring and downright stuffy!
How do these two come together?
I have loved all of Riley's men and these two are no different. I like how they form an unlikely but easygoing friendship. There's insta-atraction and connection.. but not an insta-love feel some books seem to jump to these days.
And speaking of connection... when these two 'connect' HOT!!!
As I said earlier, there's a sadness lurking. These two are struggling with their pasts, their mistakes, their futures. There were a couple of moments when I actually slapped my hand over my mouth on a gasp! And I cried.
Solid read with a multitude of emotions.
Rock Solid Riley Hart!
Another amazing start to what I anticipate is going to be an amazing series.
