✱✱Book Review✱✱ Follow Your Heart (Evergreen Canyon Christmas) by Declan Rhodes

For big league baseball player Buck Grimshaw, the world is falling apart. The end of his season is a disaster and his fiancé left him. At the moment he thought he hit bottom, the magic of Christmas Tree Falls called him back. That’s where he met Vince Manning, now a small-town teacher, his first love and the man who might help piece everything back together.

First, Vince has to deal with his painful memories over how they parted ten years earlier, and Buck has to face his ultimate fears of rejection. With help from friends Elaine, Ethan, and Teddy and grandfatherly figure, Nick, on their sides, Buck and Vince need to learn how to follow their hearts.

Follow Your Heart is a standalone 50,000-word second chance, holiday gay romance with magic in the air. It shares the same world and multiple characters with Listen to Your Heart by A.D. Ellis.

Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

If you're like me and in need of some Christmas cheer, Follow Your Heart is a good way to find it. I just love Vince and Buck to pieces, and even the secondary characters are engaging and add some Christmas spirit to the mix. The story is a second chance for these guys, and I've gotta say I was on board with the romance almost immediately. These guys are just that lovable. Of course, we have to have a bit of angst, but it's pretty low-key and I really appreciated the conversation and compromise rather than everything hinging on miscommunication. I'll stop there since this is a quick read and it would be easy to wander into spoiler territory. I'll just sum it up by saying I enjoyed everything about this book - from the characters to the setting to the steamy fun to the ending - I absolutely loved that ending. Now, I have to go tell some friends to read it so we can talk about it!
