Long Time Coming

Hot Rods, #8

What a wonderful love story. This story is unique for several reasons. For fans of Ms Rylon, you will know that this is part of a very intense series. However, forget the young people, this story is about the parents. Yes, the parents of the characters introduced in the rest of the series. And, it’s fantastic. Just because you’re older doesn’t mean fun, love and romance are out of your life! The family interactions are what will have you laughing, especially if you have older children. You know you don’t want to think about parents and sex. Another awesome aspect of this story are the unexpected twists. Ghosts from the past make an impact on the present which may change everyone’s lives. Of course, all of the characters from this series make appearances and totally make this story work. I absolutely loved this story. And, if you’ve never read any of this series, don’t let that stop you from picking this story up. It will stand alone but it is better having read the rest of the series. I don’t know how Ms Rylon does it, but she is able to make emotions come through her stories and wrap themselves around your heart.

Tom’s wife died years ago leaving him to raise their son alone. However, Tom adopted several other young men along the way and those men are tighter than most families. Through them, Tom met Willie Brown, a single mother of two young women. Willie’s husband died when her daughter were very young. Though the two parents were brought together by their children, they soon discover feelings for each other. Neither wants to rush into anything but they can’t deny what they feel either. However, a discovery from the past will rock their lives forever. Can they work through this new issue?

The best things are worth waiting for.

Tom London has done a pretty damn good job. Despite an illness that stole his young wife years ago, he’s raised his biological son, and several adopted ones, to be fine men. The Hot Rods might be unconventional, but they’re hardworking, hard-playing, and hard-loving. Tom couldn’t ask for anything more—except perhaps an equally fierce love of his own. And he’s got his eye on a luscious candidate. Ms. Wilhelmina Brown, a longtime widow with more than enough sass in her step to take him on.

Willie has a lot in common with Tom. She’s raised two wonderful daughters, both now married into the Hot Rods family, and lived through her own tragedy, having lost her husband in a horrific accident. More than two decades later, she and Tom still live with the ghosts of their pasts, but she’d have to be dead herself not to feel the man’s effect on her libido. They already share a mutual respect; perhaps they can each be what the other needs in more tangible ways…

As Tom and Willie take one step closer, an explosive revelation shoots them several steps back. But that bombshell turns out to be just a precursor to something potentially worse…potentially deadly…and potentially enough to keep the mature lovers apart forever.
