Sub-Genre: Fantasy, Contemporary Romance
When teenager Perry Green witnesses his adult neighbor, Seth Moore, crying in his car late one evening, Perry sets out to console the man he’s spent many a year fantasizing about. But Seth’s personal crisis takes a backseat when a magical grandfather clock sends the two of them back in time to witness a pivotal moment in his past. As Seth and Perry work to solve the problem, romance blossoms—or it would, if Perry could just convince Seth that love surpasses time itself.
When nineteen year old Perry sees his next door neighbor, Seth, crying in his car he immediately decides to go to his aide. Perry has had feelings for Seth for years, but because Seth is the father of his friend and seemingly straight, Perry knows his feelings for the older man is doomed. Seth is surprised by Perry’s unexpected visit, and he finds himself telling Perry his problems, and the men connect on a very emotional level. But even though Seth admits his attraction for Perry, he refuses to take a chance on having anything meaningful with the younger man. Instead, when Seth hears the grandfather clock that’s been sitting in the attic chiming, both men decide to go check it out. Soon, they are swept back into the past where each man is faced with the decision to change the past so they might have a future together.
I really loved this story. I thought the storyline was very creative and I enjoyed the camaraderie and the emotional connection between Perry and Seth. This story moves very quickly and gives just the right amount of angst and romance that kept this reader enthralled with it from start to finish. I loved the banter and the sizzling chemistry between the two heroes and I hated to see it come to an end. The Witching Hour is a great romantic read if you’re looking for a fun, sexy, quick way to spend an hour or two. Recommended!
