Heroes: Book Two
Young mechanic Andrew Campbell’s life couldn’t be better. He is about to restore a Ford Mustang with his dad before heading off on the ultimate cross-country road trip with his best friend, Tanner McKenzie.
But tragedy strikes, and Andrew’s life is shattered. Worried his family will be torn apart if he doesn’t step in, Andrew makes a tough choice between following his heart and doing what he needs to do to protect his little brother.
When Andrew pushes Tanner away, Tanner heads off on the planned trip alone. Once Tanner leaves town, his life takes a different path, and it’s ten years before he returns. Now a firefighter, he’s never forgotten his first love, and no one has ever taken Andrew’s place in his heart. He’s determined to see if Andrew feels the same way. He just hopes Andrew’s excited to see him, hopes that he’s available—and finally out—after all this time.
They might not have been ready to deal with emerging feelings years ago, but now might be the time for their second chance at love.

This is my first book by this author,yes, this is the second one in the series but some how I read this one first. I didn’t feel lost so I’m guessing it doesn’t matter. Because this book is told in two phases instead of flashbacks won big brownie points. The book itself happens in two phases, first 100 pages or so, is the kids being just out of school around nineteen, discovering sexuality, each other feelings and planning a big trip. Tanner and Andrew have been friends for forever but I guess the way they were brought up, neither one was allowed to express feelings or maybe they were late bloomers? Although they both realize they like each other they certainly haven’t talked about it. When things fall apart and finally Andrew pushes Tanner away, Andrew turns in on himself and decides that’s that The second phase is Tanner coming back to town, ten years later after Andrew tells him he just can’t. Ten years on, and Tanner never lost his love for Andrew. Andrew is still shy about everyone knowing even though everyone is ten years older. But watching these two develop a more adult friendship and then a courtship and finally a sexual relationship was charming. The way Tanner gives Andrew time,space to wrap his head and heart around everything. The fact that Andrew finds that people are actually understanding and supportive including his brother adds a real feel good touch to the book. The HEA was also well done.
