Six years ago, all of Noah Wheeler’s hopes and dreams were destroyed when he went to the airport to meet his boyfriend, Dante and found him kissing a woman and professing his love. Ending their long-term relationship was hard but Noah still had the birth of his and Dante’s surrogate child and being a father to look forward to. At least he got to keep one dream. 

Noah’s life takes a turn when on vacation in Las Vegas, he runs into Dante and his family. It doesn’t take long to discover that, not only was he deceived all those years ago, but Dante was, as well. Now that Dante knows the truth of what happened and has learned that he’s Gracie’s father, he’s determined to make up for lost time. He still loves Noah and wants him back in his life but it’s going to take some fancy talking to convince him they belong together…as a family, just like they always planned. 

Again is the newest release by author Mary Calmes. It’s a sweet, funny and fast paced story of messed up love and the engaging manner in which it’s written drew me in on the opening page. Yes, Noah and Dante get back together quickly, which some readers may find problematic, but with only 90 pages to work with, I feel the author did a good job. The story’s well written with lots of emotion, it’s filled with intriguing characters, including the scene stealing cutie-pie Gracie, and while some scenes are serious, others are downright chuckle-worthy. It even has a little conflict in unfaithful Keith…the jerk…who wants Noah for himself. But he can’t have him since Dante and Noah are perfectly crafted to be together, whether inside the bedroom or out. Read and enjoy. I know I did.
