It's time to come home, Finn.
It’s been seven years since Daniel Finley left his hometown in Florida for the hustle and bustle of Chicago’s city life.
Since then, he’s worked hard for his position at the prestigious law firm Leighton & Associates, even when it’s caused distance and isolation from his family and friends. But that’s all about to change.
On his thirtieth birthday, he receives the one thing he never dared hope for. Something that was promised to him years earlier—a note. One simple sentence from the man he’s never been able to forget.
Six words will forever change the course of their lives.
Brantley Hayes has it all. Or so he thinks. When he first made the decision to take a job down in Florida, his family thought he was crazy. But, after years of living in the quiet beach town, he finally feels a sense of community. He’s surrounded himself with friends who are like family, has a job he loves, and owns a spectacular beachfront property that is his sanctuary.
Yet he still feels unfulfilled, as if a piece of the puzzle is missing, and he knows exactly which piece it is. On an impulse, he follows through with a promise he made years earlier. A promise to call home the one he sent away.
Nothing is as simple as it seems.
After years of separation, the former lovers are reunited, but Brantley wasn’t expecting to encounter the high walls now guarding Daniel’s heart.
Daniel may not be the same person he was when he left, but he knows that the first step to healing is the note in his hand.

5 Forfuckingever Stars
It’s always a pleasure to read Ella’s books, her romance stories are the best, they make me feel “ALL THE FEELS” and once I finished this book, they left me full of happiness, with a huge grin on my face and very satisfied. This is a lovely story, a teacher/student and second chances romance, with a bit of bitterness, angst and a lot of sexual tension.
Daniel Finley aka Finn fell in love for his professor Brantley Hayes as soon as he entered to his class and he did whatever it took in order to get him. Finn hunted him down and Brantley was so drawn to Finn that their romance was unavoidable, the difference of 9 years between them wasn’t a problem until Brantley decided that Finn should leave to college to finish his studies in Chicago. Even though he knew this was the best for Finn, Brantley didn’t think that Finn would never come back.
The years passed and Finn had a successful life, he worked his ass off to accomplish what he dreamed of, but something was missing in his life, someone was missing until after seven years he received Brantley’s note “It’s time to come home, Finn.”
Brantley wanted Finn back, but people changed, Finn had changed. Will they be able to leave the past behind, leave the resentment behind?
If you’re not a M/M romance fan, I can assure you that after reading this book you will be. The story is told from alternating POV, Ella makes her magic alternating the present with the past (flashbacks) in order to understand their romance. This is an emotional ride with a lot of passion and love, love, love <3
If you’re a fan of the Temptation series you get a glimpse of Logan & Tate *sighs here*. I hope Ella write about Derek and Jordan, I’m looking forward to their story.
