Big X, little x, question mark, dot. The child’s rhyme runs through Lucas Sinclair’s mind. He can still feel the light play of his sister’s fingers across his back, dancing along to the words. Unsettling, considering his twin, Laurie, had been abducted fifteen years earlier and never heard from again.
Ocean breeze, little squeeze. In a small, ocean-side cottage that shouldn’t be filled with memories, Lucas attempts to start a new life. It’s harder than he expects to move on. Indications are that Laurie has returned and isn’t the carefree child she used to be.
With a therapist trying to help him, and a private investigator who can’t seem to let go of the past, Lucas confronts his demons. He’s not sure where his sexy next-door neighbor fits in, but Tristan Conner seems to know a lot more than he’s telling. Someone is terrorizing Lucas. Can it really be Laurie—or worse yet, one of the three men he’s come to trust? (Mystery/suspense, m/m)

((I must remind you all that this is a short story and if you are here enough (at my place), you will know that I do not judge short stories for their briefness.))
This is a very emotional, heart-wrenching story. Lucas Sinclair is trying to reclaim his life. Life has dealt some crappy cards. At a very young age, he lost his twin sister. Then later in life, he lost both of his parents. Life has not been nice for Lucas to say the least. He moves two hours away from his parents home, to the beach. Not to run away, to just regroup.
This book had me on the edge of my seat, not know who Lucas was destined to be with - the therapist Kyle, the private investigator Eli... or his new neighbor Tristan. Will Lucas find the answers he needs to lay at rest his past, will things he uncover in the event to lay at rest on bring turmoil, will he be deemed crazy and insane, or will the men in his life drive him another kind of crazy? Where will Lucas place his trust? Where will Lucas place his heart? Will his heart ever be free of the past?
Questions you say I leave you, answers I leave you not. Am I being mean, never! I will give you this... there is some sweet man loving in this book; enough to make your hussy purr
Ms. Jenna has a way of crafting her words where you will fall in love. Her man loving is awesome. This story was very suspenseful. Ms. Jenna kept me guessing the whole time. Her work speaks for itself. Another great story by her!
