Book Review: The Past Comes Home (Ames Bridge #2) by Silvia Violet

Twenty years ago, Paxton Marshall realized he liked boys, in particular his brother’s best friend, Brad. Pax now runs a successful art gallery, but he’s never found anyone who stirs his heart the way Brad did.

Brad Watson is back in town for his twentieth high school reunion. However, the celebration of long-ago days is the last thing on his mind. He’s there for one reason: to finally tell Pax how he feels.

Pax is shocked to learn Brad is not only gay but also interested in him. Dating a man in Ames Bridge isn’t as simple as it sounds, though. In order to make a relationship work, both men will have to bolster their courage and alter their expectations.

This is an enjoyable read with likable characters that will make you root for their happiness and success. I really liked Brad and his strength, tenacity and big heart. Pax was a little more difficult. Don’t get me wrong, I liked him, but his persistent, and often unfounded, doubts about Brad grated my nerves a bit. Even though several background characters were introduced throughout the book, I didn’t feel as though it was weighed down by them. They were all necessary to effectively tell Brad and Pax’s story.

If you’re in the mood for a sweet, second-chance-at-love story, The Past Comes Home is the one for you!

3.75 stars

I received a copy of this book from the author and voluntarily provided my honest review.
