AN OBJECT AT REST
Quiet, down-to-earth Detroit handyman Derrick Chance has had enough loss for a lifetime and he has no intention of ever risking his heart again. Living alone in the old house his grandparents left him, with only his dog and a few close friends for companionship, he has written off the possibility of romance or even sex. He refuses to consider himself lonely, or wonder what he might be missing. His life is organized, predictable, and, best of all, risk-free.
Until the day he installs shelves for accountant Gavin Hayes. With his contradictory combination of confidence and self-doubt, Gavin draws Derrick in with an intensity he's never known. As undeniable as gravity, Derrick finds himself falling for Gavin in defiance of all his usual slow and methodical ways. But Gavin carries wounds of his own. Fresh from an emotionally abusive relationship that ended with a dangerous betrayal, his future is far from certain. Can Derrick choose passion over safety, and let himself believe that Gavin is worth the risk?
this was a very good book to have my very first male on male experience in a book. it was an easy read, great story line, and actually left me wanting more. I'm quite ashamed with myself that it took me so long to finish it. Gavin, I love his attitude especially with all the Crap he's been through and currently going through. Derreck reminds me of a shy virginal school girl in some ways. I'm highly intrigued on what goes on with those two in future books, and this is a book I would recommend for anyone who enjoys MM books, or is wondering how MM books are.
