Trevor Dixon has made too many mistakes to count. Sober for thirteen months, he’s determined to do the right thing: rebuild his relationship with his family, and help his brother get Rock Solid Construction off the ground. Failing them again isn’t an option. Too bad the first estimate Trevor goes on alone is for an uptight doctor with a superiority complex.
A hand injury took away the only important thing in Dr. Simon Malone’s life—performing heart surgery. He doesn’t do well with people and has no family, but being a damn good surgeon? He always had that. Now, he doesn’t know who he is. The last thing he wants to deal with is the young construction worker who blows his shot at remodeling Simon’s home.
Trevor and Simon form an unlikely friendship. The more time they spend together, the more Trevor starts wondering if maybe Simon’s not as straight—or uptight—as he thought…and maybe Trevor’s new attraction for Simon runs both ways.
There are too many reasons they shouldn’t be together: they have little in common, their age difference, Trevor needing to focus on his sobriety…yet there’s something about each other that they just can’t shake. They don’t feel so lost when they’re together. But with their footing so unsteady, forming a relationship that’s rock solid seems impossible. There’s blow after blow, and the last one just might be powerful enough to crack their foundation for good.
Rock solid is a wonderful emotional story about a second chances at life for both the main characters.
Trevor and Simon are great characters i liked them from the start, Trevor more so i think he was so strong yet had a vulnerable side that made him so very likable. Both men are struggling to find acceptance, friendship and love but through some ups and downs they manage to find all three with each other, Simon also finds a family something that hes has not really had before.
What did grate on my nerves a little was the fact that Blake (Trevor’s twin) and his mom always thought the worst of Trevor never giving him the kind of support he got from Simon. I understand it must be hard for you to trust an addict after events that must have happened, but surly they could have given him a bit more support, hes family.
This is a real easy read the words flow well and the plot has enough to keep you encased in the story until the very last page where you really feel Simon and Trevor’s connection.
Riley Hart does M/M romance well, this is a beautiful book.
