Publisher's Summary

Trevor Dixon has made too many mistakes to count. Sober for 13 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 to 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.

Rock solid story!!!

Wow. This was so real. I have a family member who is a recovering addict, and this hits so close to home. I could relate to the brother and mother’s mistrust and constant worry. I thought Riley portrayed Trevor's struggle and temptation very realistically. It made me think, however, that I need to show more empathy and be more patient (and discreetly hide the liquor and meds!).

Riley got this one right. This is her best! I’m so glad she didn’t trivialize the addict’s struggle. I appreciated that she gave us an insight in the addict’s internal struggle/thoughts as that was so powerful. I felt Trevor’s pain. I cried because of his poor choices. I understood his anguish. For the first time, I got it: Sobriety is an everyday struggle, which gives new meaning to 'one day at a time' as this story showcased. (A very powerful listen! Started listening last night and couldn't stop! Joe Arden nailed it, as usual.)

I loved Simon too. I enjoyed seeing his growth. His faith in (and patience with) Trevor made him such an admirable character. Their age gap was a non-issue.

Extremely realistic plot. Very likeable characters. Excellent pacing. Hawt sex. Numerous and valuable life lessons. Highly recommended.

Oh, for more realistic stories like this!

***4.5/5 rounded up!

Thank you, Riley!
