Can he step out of the shadows and into love’s light?

Eight years ago, Christian Hernandez moved to Jamaica Plain in southern Boston, took refuge in his apartment, and cut himself off from the outside world. And that’s how he’d like it to stay.

Josh Wendell has heard his coworkers gossip about the occupant of apartment #1. No one sees the mystery man, and Josh loves a mystery. So when he is hired to refurbish the apartment’s kitchen and bathrooms, Josh is eager to discover the truth behind the rumors.

When he comes face-to-face with Christian, Josh understands why Christian hides from prying eyes. As the two men bond, Josh sees past his exterior to the man within, and he likes what he sees. But can Christian find the courage to emerge from the darkness of his lonely existence for the man who has claimed his heart?



Book Cover

  • Agoraphobic/reclusive characters are a favorite trope of mine
  • Josh was so smart, accommodating, and understanding

  • Low angst considering the subject matter

  • It seemed like overcoming the agoraphobia was sped up in an unrealistic way to advance the story; I don't think it could be so quickly treated in weeks/months
