    1. ~ 3.5 stars ~This is the first book ever I've read by this author, and it was so damn promising at the beginning, I thought for sure I lucked out. There was a perfect combination of suspense and sexual chemistry that drove me absolutely insane (in a good way). I could totally feel the intense, sexual vibe, that perfect undercurrent of attraction between Anton and Stephen, from the first moment they met. To complement that the weird series of events that led to Anton crashing his car close to Ant [...]

    2. 3.5 starsWhen I first read the blurb, I thought this was gonna be something sinister. A somewhat isolated house in rustic England, bad weather and car trouble, a specter in the shadow Heh, I couldn't be more wrong.This was a comfortable reading for me, even with a rather gloomy beginning and morose characters. For a solicitor, I found Anthony to be a bit naive and unworldly, just the opposite of brooding Dr. Stephen. That said, underneath both were scarred men who had been through lost and pain; [...]

    3. Liked the story, but felt it had a certain amount of emotional distance throughout. I could see it staged as a Masterpiece Theatre-type production, with the country cottage being the main set, and most of the action happening off-stage. Also, the use of the word cavity in any sex scene is so wrong.

    4. “Don’t worry, Sebastian,” he murmured, drifting off to sleep. “He’s in safe hands now.”❤️❤️❤️Oh mye first 45% of this book is swoony and like falling into just the most perfect book for me. An unexpected meeting at a remote home, a group of fabulous men playing games around a kitchen table, beautifully depicted scenery I wanted to fall instantly into, a troubled MC, and a spirit of a lost love. I was an emotional wreck.Had the book continued at this high, it would have un [...]

    5. A simple and sweet story about a young man finding his inner strenght and his place in the world, through his encounter with a "damaged good" man and his friends.Yes, there's a ghost, but this is not a ghost story.Despite some awkward sex scenes, this story has a sort of grace, and a sweet melancholy.That's why I liked it.P.S. A special thanks to Mr Lancaster. Because now I'm listening to Naima sung by Mimi Perrin, and it's wonderful.

    6. This was a solid romance. Sure the main storyline isn't fresh, but the written style was pulling and fine. Something wasn't right here, I can't pinpoint what, maybe undeveloped feeling of a plot. Still it was enjoyable enough.

    7. Charming and romantic, with just a dash of ghost story. The setting and dialogue was an extra treat for an Anglophile like me! I wish I could hang out with all these guys too. Lucky Anton.

    8. (Originally reviewed for Love Bytes Same Sex Book Reviews)When this book showed up on our available to review list, I was instantly intrigued by the “spirit at work” words in the blurb. I’m always up for a ghostie in the story somewhere! Unfortunately, I was to be disappointed with that part. While there were some vague references to the spirit, it was mainly inferred and pretty much a very minor part of the storyline. As I read along though, I didn’t mind as much. The story was good as [...]

    9. Such a simple yet enjoyable read - a breath of fresh air. Anton Swann deserves to find love and so does Dr Stephen Miller--even if the latter behaves like a grouch for the first half of the book. Until gradually we find out why.When Anton's car breaks down and he stumbles into the lives of this warm clutch of gay men, you sense that somehow he has come home, even though he has never been to this remote moorland house before. And as things conspire to keep him there, as the story of Stephen's tra [...]

    10. After reading the first few pages I discovered the author is from England and I expected to find a lot of English slang and other words that would cause me to not understand this book. Thankfully that was not the case. I was able to completely understand the words and slang used.The book started out slow and, I hate to say it, but, a bit boring. Starting chapter 4 it picked up and became much more enjoyable.I loved how the group instantly accepted Anton and just drew him in. The camaraderie betw [...]

    11. Loved this book from the start! So with this book you get Anton who is a lawyer and has just gotten out of a relationship which is was hurt by the other man in. He is on his way home from his grandma's funeral when he has a accident in his car which leads him to finding a cottage in the woods. Stephen is the owner of this cottage and has lost someone he loved which makes him a bit standoffish with people around him. This book was a slow burn but the way it worked out in this book was perfect! Yo [...]

    12. My first by this author, and I found it very intriguing. You know when you read one of those books and you you keep thinking, this is going to happen, just wait. Well, it never did, and that was ok.Anton, running late decides to follow a car off the road, wrecks and changes his life forever.As a series of events happen, some ppl would say coincidence, some would say a another power at work. Whatever it was the tale that follows not just Anton and Stephen but the others in the home that fateful n [...]

    13. This was a nice story about a guy who is lonely and not doing well after a bad break up. A chance decision leads him to a darkened road one night and another chance incident leads him to a house on that road. There he meets Stephen, a doctor who is also caught up in his own grief, and his group of friends. Odd things happen that cause Anton to stay longer and the men end up becoming attracted to each other. The story was slow paced but not in a bad way. I liked the slight paranormal twist. This [...]

    14. I really enjoyed this book, it has the perfect blend of supernatural, with two men trying to figure out if there really is something between them. The ending was perfect, and everything that happens before the end was very entertaining.

    15. Was a good romantic story line I recognised the characters recognised the areas and it was well thought out I hope to read more from this author. I enjoyed this book a lot had a English maturity to it.

    16. I really loved Stephen and Anton. Stephen's friend were interesting and I loved to know more about them. I look forward to another book by Mr Lancaster and maybe a sequel.

    17. Really enjoyed this story - It did have an abrupt end - which I am thinking maybe a sequel is in the future. I hope the author continues to write and maybe gives us more of these characters.
