Here Without You: Cooper's Ridge Book 2 - JJ Harper

JJ Harper has re-edited and extended Here Without You and re-released it for us to enjoy.  Miki J. has reviewed it for us and found it heart-wrenching with twists galore...

From the Blurb:

Archer Hawkins and Mallory Halston literally run into each other and a true love story is born. Archer pursues Mallory with absolute determination making him fall hook, line, and sinker.
“I really would like to get to know you, Mallory.” His voice husky in my ear.
“I don’t think it’s a good idea, I’m sorry.” I’m already kicking myself for turning him down. “That’s okay, I’ll ask again tomorrow, and the day after, I’ll get you to say yes in the end.”

But just when they’re about to get everything they ever hoped tragedy strikes leaving Mal alone and adrift. Putting his past behind him Mal stumbles upon Cooper’s Ridge. Changing his name to Carter, he takes a chance, becoming a bartender at The Last Drop Inn, and embarking on a new life.

Local attorney, Dan Mortimer, has finally found and captured the heart of Cooper’s Ridge’s newest resident, Carter.
“I was coming in to see you, and maybe get you to agree to dinner with me. C’mon Carter it’s only dinner, I’m a nice guy I promise.”

But when Dan’s college friend comes to town to recuperate after a horrible car accident, it seems the most important men in his life may have something to answer for. And just how far will an evil, conniving, homophobic mother with a vendetta go to bring them all down?

This book can be read as a standalone
Here Without You is a gay ménage story with plenty of hot sex and strong language and is therefore suitable for readers aged 18 and over.

Miki J.'s Review:

Wowsers !! The book starts on a very sweet wooing between 2 of the MC’s and then a massive turn…it was heart-wrenching……then a 3rd MC is introduced…and then there is another twist and another…..all the while we go through the anguish, romance, laughter and steamy romps. Here Without You was a fantastic read – loved it from beginning to end!!
