Title: Right Here Waiting
Publisher: Fireborn Publishing
Author: Remmy Duchene
Captain Marc LaCroix’s career as pilot in the Air Force is over and he’s not looking forward to a life of being alone. That is until he gets home and sees just how grown up his best friend Paul Kane has become.
Captain Marc LaCroix’s career as pilot in the Air Force ends because of a creep with a surface to air missile. With a leg amputated below the knee, Marc comes home to what he expects to be a miserable, lonely existence. What he didn’t count on is his best friend, Paul Kane, and the way his body would react to Paul’s sizzling eyes and kisses.
Paul has been in love with Marc since they were kids. Afraid confessing his feelings would ruin their friendship, Paul stayed in the background, playing the supportive best friend all through the many years Marc has been away. Then Marc returns, sexier than he left, and all those old feelings become new again. But will Paul’s fear ruin it before it even begins?
I am a fan of Remmy Duchene’s and try to read whatever books of hers I can get my hands on. Remmy’s characters are always realistic and easily pull me into their story. Right Here Waiting is no exception. In fact, I like that the author wrote Marc as suffering from his time in the military, as opposed to coming home unaffected.
Trying to come to terms with losing a leg, as well as survivor’s guilt, Marc is at loose ends. Thankfully his longtime friend Paul is there to help him pick up the pieces. These two have been friends for some time and Paul has been quietly lusting after Marc for as long as he can remember. Marc is gay but has kept that fact from Paul. These are two strong men, yet they are so afraid of being hurt that they would rather sit back than say anything. Thankfully Paul’s sister is there to help the men out, especially after Paul screws up.
I have to admit that when Paul pushed Marc away I thought he was crazy and could not understand what the hell he was thinking since he had loved Marc for so long. I do like the way Paul goes about making up for his previous lack in judgement.
While I wish Right Here Waiting was longer, this is a story that I will be reading again, as I really liked Paul and Marc. This is also a greater starter book for those who have not yet given this author a try.
