Saints Like Him, Redemption Ridge #3 by Aimee Nicole Walker

A love story that has no ups and downs, just a straightforward romance for two men that were always meant to be together. Nick has been Cash's best friend for years, but this time when he visits Nick makes it clear he wants more. There has never been any doubt for Cash that he has always been in love with Nick, so now is their chance for a forever happiness. 

From the blurb for Saints Like Him:

From ex-con to self-made millionaire, there’s no challenge too tough for Cash Sweeney to conquer. So why has he spent twelve years pining for his best friend instead of doing something about it? Because losing Nick would be like existing with half of his heart. Is it better to settle for what he can have or
battle for what he wants?

Banged up and burned out, FBI Agent Nick Scott arrives at Redemption Ridge with a trunkful of luggage and a yearning heart. Cash is easy to love but hard to read, and Nick fears his epiphany has come too late. Does he tuck his tail and run or fight for the man who’s become his home?

Tender gestures and heartfelt conversations lead to thrilling revelations neither man can ignore. No more what-ifs or maybes. Cash and Nick are all in. And they’ll need each other more than ever when a devious enemy emerges from the shadows to put their promising future at risk. With the stakes so high, will the guys double down or fold to pressure?

SNik's Review:

Third in series (Redemption Ridge), best if read in order. Friends to lovers. Second chance. Mature characters. Age gap. Dual POV. 

One night of passion twelve years ago, but neither Cash nor Nick were ready for a commitment, so they settled into being best friends. But lusting and pining for your best friend for years finally catches up to them when Nick realizes his career as an FBI agent is no longer the most important thing in his life, and Cash is all-in once he realizes Nick wants forever. 

This book is low angst and just a sweet romance, two mature men that have loved each other for years and are now finding it’s the right time for them. 

Cash and Nick communicate honestly, have no problem steaming up the sheets, and easily transition to a romantic relationship from their very strong friendship. 

Both Cash and Nick commit one hundred percent, and the emotional writing makes it clear they are meant to be together. 

A supportive secondary cast of characters, with some hints of future couples to come, this was a really enjoyable addition to the series.
