**What a wonderful book, with a very surprising twist! The author has written two fabulous characters, an intriguing, and surprising plot, and just enough heat to keep you reading.
If this is what CM Corett is usually like, then I’ll be back for more, I can guarantee that!
What a way to meet! James has finally decided to learn how to ski at age forty-two, but deigns the beginner slope and heads right out, and right into quite a tumble and fall. Who comes to his rescue, but the young, and gorgeous, Ash. Ash works for an outdoor gear company and has spent his life testing snowboards, skis, water skis, mountain climbing gear, and more. In James’ mind, this gorgeous, stunning, twenty-eight year old, with an exciting, adventurous life, couldn’t possibly be interested in James and his fuddy-duddy life. Of course, James also has twenty plus years of guilt and fear that he’s trying to put in the past, and being with Ash just keeps them in the forefront. Fortunately, there are people in James’ life who aren’t going to allow his preconceived notions to stop him from being with the man who is meant for him.

MM Good Book Reviews – 20 June 2015
: For a story less than 100 pages CM Corett managed to grab my attention from the first paragraph and keep it the entire book. There were several twists, I cried and I cheered each of these characters along the way.
James rejected Ashes advances in the beginning but you have to applaud Ash on going after what he wanted. Then through a tragic twist James must pursue the man he fell in love with. I would have loved to seen this spread out and some blanks filled in. I would have loved more details on Ashes job and adventures and would have loved more about Brody and Ashes history. Yes I loved this story so much I just wanted more! I will definitely be looking for more from this author!
If you like sweet romance, extreme sports, books, older men/younger men, some twists, some moderate but sensual loving man-sex this is definitely for you!
* I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review through
**This is an interesting story about two men and their hard earned love. It’s well written with great main characters and supporting characters as well, especially James’s sister, Rachel. Without her nagging encouragement, James would have drifted through life, not knowing what love could be like. If you enjoy stories about leaving the past behind, not worrying about what other people think, and following your feelings, then you may like this story. Thanks, CM, for the reminder to live in the present and let the past go.
During a ski trip with his sister, James Connell, of ‘Bindings and Books’ by C.M. Corett, has an accident on the slopes and is “rescued” by a handsome young man called Ash. James is attracted to his “knight in shining armor”, but immediately disregards the notion because he thinks Ash is too young for him. James figures he will never see Ash again, but he is wrong. James runs into Ash later that night. Ash engages James in conversation and makes it clear that he’s interested. James wants Ash, but is still reticent, telling Ash that he only dates men his own age. Ash isn’t a boy even though he looks younger than his twenty-eight years. If James can’t let go of the “he’s too young for me” attitude, there is no chance of them getting together.
James has sworn to himself not to get involved with anyone as young-looking as Ash. He remembers the humiliation and embarrassment his own father caused the family by dating young girls. James adamantly refuses to follow in his father’s footsteps. James tries to ignore his feelings for Ash and avoids him as much as possible. Although Ash doesn’t exactly understand James’s “rule”, he’s determined to put up a good fight. He starts turning up in unexpected places where he just “happens” to run into James. It’s obvious that Ash is trying to wear James down and get him to agree to date him after all. At first, James is irritated, but he soon finds himself looking forward to seeing Ash…
