If you’re reading this, something has happened to me. Hopefully, it wasn’t something long and drawn out, but quick and peaceful. Baby, I’m also hoping it didn’t take you, too, although you know I’d find you in heaven if you are here with me.
So, you’ve made it to cleaning out my office, which you’ve been asking me to do for years. I never was the neatone.
Reassure the boys I’m watching over them. I have faith that the two halves of us will find their way in the world, hopefully as fathers, as fatherhood has been one of the greater joys of my life.
The greatest joy has been your love, Mati. I know you gave it to me willingly, in sickness and in health, for richer or poorer. We know we’ve covered all four areas. Death does not part us, but I don’t want it to stop you from living. We promised each other, young or old, which ever one of us went first, the other would continue to enjoy the gift of life. It’s an adventure. Ours has certainly hit some bumps, taken curves, and ridden steep hills, but we enjoyed the ride, right? Don’t stop now. You’re the driver, Mati. A new road awaits.
I want you to do me a favor. Just consider it before you get mad at me. (Those vows should have included in moments of conflict and peace.) Contact Denton. He was one of our best friends. He loved you asI did, only I’m the luckier man. Despite riches and fame, I won you. I had your ear and your heart and your body. You might need someone to talk to, and he could be the ear for you. I have no doubt his heart is still open to yours. As for your body, well, I’d be a selfish man, deserving hell instead of heaven, if I expected it to waste on earth without attention. We gave each other permission, in vows outside our wedding, babe. I expect you to accept them. For once, don’t argue with me.
Love from heaven,
About L.B. Dunbar
I’ve been accused of having an over-active imagination. To my benefit, this imagination has created over twenty novels, including the creation of a small-town world (Sensations Collection), rock star mayhem (Legendary Rock Star series), MMA chaos (Paradise Stories), rom-com for the over forty (The Sex Education of M.E.), and a suspenseful island for redemption (The Island Duet). My alter ego, elda lore, creates magical romance through mythological retellings (Modern Descendants). My life revolves around a deep love of reading about fairy tales, medieval knights, regency debauchery, and strong alpha males. I love a deep belly laugh, a strong hug, and an occasional margarita. My other loves include being mother to four grown children and wife to the one and only.

It was my first from L.B. Dunbar and I liked it very much. A second chance romance between two former best friends. A story between three best friends, two broken hearts and more than twenty years later, they’ve changed but their hearts still felt the same.
Denton, Chris and Mati, best friends, two boys in love with the same girl. One got to be with her, the other left everything behind without looking back.
Mati had a beautiful life with Chris, two children, adults, living their own life. Until he passed away, leaving her a letter, telling her to contact Denton. Her best friend who left without her, crushed her heart and betrayed their friendship.
Now a widow, clueless to dating, coach to the volleyball high school team, working part with her family in their brewery. Four protective brother and friends who loved to interfere and giving their opinion about anything.
She had his sassy attitude and badass vibes hiding a sensitive woman who cared for her loved ones.
Denton… damn that cocky sexy silver fox. Back to his town, the one that held so many heartbreak, painful memories. More than twenty years later, he had to deal with his past and facing the woman he loved, who had been married to his best friend.
Behind the good looks and confidence he was hiding deep scars, and his return brought back all the angst, also his struggles about Mati, his family. He might have been successful but deep inside he felt like he was missing something.
I adored their chemistry and their love to hate relationship. The foreplay was on point. I’d to say that I appreciated reading about characters with some experience background, exploring the consequences of the choices they made through their lives. The upfront tone, the characters’ passionate side and second characters living in this small town drew me in.
I enjoyed the steamy parts but I’ve felt that sometimes they used it to avoid any confrontation. I could sense how Mati and Denton were connected and these moments they shared were well written but it was at times too much. The slow burn romance was pretty great.
The author managed to hook me in and intrigued about this town and all the stories the other characters had to share.
I am so going to read more stories by L.B. Dunbar for sure. And yes I one clicked the whole series… book crush alert!
