If you’ve read Found at the Library you’ve met Ryder and Stig. You’re also wildly curious about Ryder, his brain injury, his life, and his life after what happened in Tommy and Mac’s book. If you haven’t read the first book in Christi Snow’s Found series please know that you can step into this book without having read the first and not be lost or confused.
Eight years ago Ryder Garrett suffered a traumatic brain injury. It’s left him with more complications than he can handle on his own on a regular basis. Some days are better than others. Some days he needs more help than he would like to require. It is on one of those rough days when the Stig Minton finds Ryder in the bookstore.
The ironic thing is is that Stig is more of a mess than Ryder. Stig’s mess is a mess of his own making to a certain extent though. He’s a successful business owner. He’s wealthy. He’s attractive. On the surface Stig is a man that he has it all. He’s also lonely, broken, and makes some questionable decisions on how to fill those gaps of loneliness.
Talk about two men that are a balm to the others soul. Found at the Bookstore had that. Yes I know what an interesting thing for two men to find at the bookstore. They start off as friends. Stig can see that Ryder really needs that. Ryder accepts the friendship that is offered especially after seeing how his good, normal days are becoming an almost regular occurrence. The attraction that moves these friends into lovers is sexy and makes for a very enjoyable read.
I knew I would love this book the moment I loaded it on my eReader. The metadata it loaded with had some tags that had me so excited to start reading it: friends to lovers, may december romance, tbi brain damage, virgin hero. What’s not to love there? Snow delivered on all that possible awesomeness.
