When Jeremiah Crawford woke up for work and discovered he forgot to buy coffee he had to decide whether to wait till he got to the office or go to the donut shop with a crowded rush hour crowd that he hated. Coffee won and he, like all the rest of the people, waited online for his coffee fix unaware of the life changing result of his decision. When he heard a father and his son talking about getting a hot chocolate which the dad explained he couldn’t afford Jeremiah offered to buy it. He realized that this little boy was psychic like him, and he was drawn to the child and father.
Trey and his six-year-old son Mikey accepted the offer of a hot chocolate and Mikey, like Jeremiah, realized the two of them had a lot in common. Trey left hoping to see to see the man that both he and Mikey immediately liked the following morning. Mikey is a little boy with the weight of the world on his little shoulders. As a psychic able to read other people’s thoughts and sometimes see what is coming, Mikey knows it is a secret he must keep for his own safety. In addition, when werewolves attempted to kidnap Mikey, Trey was bitten and turned. One more secret that this little boy must keep from the world.
Jeremiah and Trey want a relationship but they both have secrets. Jeremiah’s boss is a sorcerer who while having sex takes part of the person’s soul to boost his magic and Trey is now a werewolf forbidden from revealing it to anyone. Both men are lonely and find themselves drawn to each other, but will their secrets stand in the way of them having a future. Mikey is happy to have Jeremiah in his life since they share the same gift, or curse, and Jeremiah is the only hope Mikey has to help him figure out how to deal with it.
Secrets are not the best way to begin a relationship, but Jeremiah and Trey’s secrets are not just about themselves but affect many others. This is a book about finding love, overlooking the secrets and giving a little six-year-old a chance to be able to share who and what he is with someone just like him. I hope there is more coming about Jeremiah, Mikey and Trey because there is so much more I want to know.
This is a contemporary romance with a little paranormal thrown in and I highly recommend this book. This is a new author to me, but she is now on my list of favorites.
