What happens when a broken man has to trust in the impossible? Chapter One is an antique book shop and is the last tangible thing Joshua Blakeman and his mom have left of his father. Nestled in a quiet square a few steps from London's St Paul’s Cathedral, it is boarded up with whitewashed windows and no new stock. The place is a sad reminder of loss and it has to go, but destroying a business that has been in his family for generations is not a role Josh is looking forward to.
Michael is the owner of Arts Desire, the shop next door. With his rainbow pride mugs and his sunny outlook, he is the complete opposite of what Josh thinks he needs in his life.
But, when Josh and Michael become friends, Josh learns that finding true love starts with making big decisions—and that everyone deserves their own Christmas miracle sometimes.
Every day I love him more.
Do you believe in angels? I don't. But I believed in Michael. And Josh.
I believed in THEIR love.
And in LOVE, period.
This was a heartwarming, beautiful tale about a man done in by life and lies who discovers that maybe dreams and promises are not just for the lucky and fearless.
Josh is lost when Michael finds him. But together, over coffee and shared lunches and stolen kisses, they find each other.
I loved the bookstore setting, the talk of old London, the hope of forever.
Ah, what a gorgeous story this was, a shimmery fantasy: no steam but so much tenderness and romance. And kissing!
You don't have to believe in angels. Just breathe for a minute...and FEEL.
