Graham Hodson lives for adventure. His entire life has revolved around his obsessive wanderlust. His inner fear of staying in one place or being with one person for too long has kept him on the go. The last thing he expects is a sudden diagnosis to ground his travel—permanently.

Boyce “BC” Brooks has screwed up his lifelong dream of being the captain of the English national rugby team. He’s lost everything. When his uncle leaves him an inn and a dog in Cornwall, he has little choice but to try his hand at innkeeper.

Can two jokesters kicked around by life and their own decisions find stability when their world shakes beneath their feet?

The Wanderer is the first book in Dahlia Donovan’s The Sin Bin series and it was the first book I have read by her. It is funny how I managed completely miss that it is a story about two guys finding each other, hopefully, in the world that is falling down round them. I am actually happy for it as I might not have read it and I would have really missed out on a great story. The Wanderer is a story about Graham “Ginger” Hodson and Boyce “BC” (“Book Sniffer”) Brooks that meet at a wedding of their close friends (another gay couple). You would think that it is another story of two guys meeting through mutual friends and off they go into the sunset or sunrise or … but that is not the case here. It takes a long way for them to really ‘meet’ (beyond the fun episode in the closet at the wedding and an awkward introduction by Graham’s brother later on) and accept that there is more to their relationship than meets the eye. Those two had me in knots and on my toes! I absolutely loved the loyalty, closeness and British humour and all those crazy British expressions and … I felt like I was back over there so thank you so much for making it sooo real. All those descriptions of Cornwall took me back there as well and admire you for finding the words to paint such a clear picture! This story gives us everything – I laughed, I cried, I despaired and I hoped, above all I hoped and you will need to read the book yourself to find out if my prayers were answered or not!

The Wanderer by Dahlia Donovan is a great, sappy, heart wrenching, heart warming romance. Graham is a wanderer. He travels around the world taking pictures and writing articles about his travels. He meets BC at his best friend’s wedding, and they have a little romp in the closest of the church. Afterwards, Graham kind of bolts, not really interested in seeing this guy again. A couple months pass and he can’t really stop thinking about this man and gets another chance with him when on assignment in his own country. Boyce or BC is a retired rugby player. He has inherited a bed and breakfast from his deceased uncle and is now working at trying to keep this inn running. The one thing that he can’t stop thinking about is the ginger he “snogged” in the closet at the wedding. A chance encounter with said ginger’s brother and he will get to see Graham once again, and this time he plans on taking their romance further. BC doesn’t realize it until its too late, but he is in love with Graham. When Graham suddenly gets a terrible diagnosis from the doctor, his world is turned upside down. He becomes depressed and angry. The one constant is that BC stays by his side the whole time an makes it clear he is not leaving. Will these two finally admit their feelings for each other? Will the diagnosis Graham receives be the end of them or will it begin their relationship? This book was great, it pulled at my heart strings and also made me smile so much from all of the sappy parts. I love that these two men found love with each other and I enjoyed watching their moments together. This book had me laughing out loud, it was so funny the banter between them, you can’t help but smile! I give this book 5 stars, the characters were fantastic and the story line was perfect!

A brief chance encounter between Graham and Boyce "BC" leaves them intrigued and wanting more but life gets in the way. Until, they are reunited 6 months later when BC takes over his uncle's inn. Can they find that spark again?

The Wanderer is a story that returns to Cornwall, where we reunite with Francis and Craddock from After The Scrum. In this story, Graham, a travel writer and someone with itchy feet, meets up with one of Craddock's rugby buddies, BC, at Francis and Craddock's wedding. Things are immediately hot and 'spicy' between them, but Graham isn't prepared to settle down, so quickly does a runner, as per his usual modus operandi. The book takes a more serious turn though when Graham becomes ill whilst abroad. Tests that BC and the rest of Graham's friends and family insist on show that he has stomach cancer. This story doesn't doesn't pull any punches. It is not glamorous, nor is there any 'softening' of cancer and the effects that both it, and the healing process and medicines, have upon a body. Dahlia Donovan also gives great detail on how the family and friends are affected. Although a strong, serious, read, The Wanderer also manages to be full of laughter as the two main clowns constantly banter with each other. Very well written, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow, I would definitely recommend this book, although I am aware that it might not be everyone's 'cup of tea' due to the subject matter. * A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review.
