Publisher's Summary

Weston “Major” Marian

After running away at the age of 17, I found a new home in the army. It wasn’t long before my fellow soldiers became my new family, giving purpose to my time in Vietnam.

But everything changes when Doc Wilde joins my medevac crew. A night alone in the jungle after a helicopter crash forces us to rely on each other for survival, the secrets we share cementing a bond between us deeper than any other I’ve known. 

Doc begins to play a starring role in my late night fantasies even though I know he can never be anything more than a friend, a brother-in-arms. He’s straight, with a wife and kids back in Texas, and there would be devastating consequences if anyone in the army discovered my secret.

But Doc was never a lifer like me. When our tours end, we go our separate ways. He heads home to his perfect family while I continue to serve. I thought that was the end of our story. Turns out I was wrong. 

Liam “Doc” Wilde

When I wind up on the front lines in Vietnam young and afraid, it’s Major Marian who comes to my rescue. He’s tough, brave, and quiet, and he vows to keep me safe. He’s the only reason I make it home to my wife and kids alive.

For some, a friendship like that might have ended once we left the jungle behind, but as time passes, our bond only continues to grow. Years later, when an unexpected illness turns my life upside down, Major is the first person I turn to for help, and he drops everything to rescue me as always.

I soon realize that at every step of my life, Major has been there, by my side, putting me first. All this time he’s been standing in the sidelines, waiting patiently to hand over his heart into my safekeeping.

I never imagined building a life with another man, but seeing Major in this new light is like a revelation. And suddenly I can’t imagine it any other way.

The narration brought the love and feels to another level!!

I ADORED this story about Doc and Major (aka Grandpa). The best part of this was truly the most horrific historically: the Vietnam War.

Major Weston Marian falls in love at first sight upon spying his new medic, Liam “Doc” Wilde. Doc is straight, married, and has three kids. Doc falls right into hero worship of the major and the two create a right bond while saving lives and each other.

You could just feel the want oozing from West, but he kept it in check. Their friendship was truly something to behold and it persevered after the war. It even brought Major to work in the farm and ranch and live amongst Doc’s family, wife and kids.

If you’ve read the Wilde series, you know that they are a couple—a long standing one. This story shows us how they got there.

I couldn’t wait for that one moment when Dic looked on Major with different eyes. It felt somewhat sudden, but then I realized that it had been slowing building for near in 10 years. Talk about UST!

After that, the story jumped forward quickly with some skimmed over decades. We come to the end, the present and Lucy Lennox decides to bring the Wilde and Marian clans together. It was a bit crazy, but not as crazy as listening to a sex scene between a 75 and an 86 year old. I just had to pretend that they weren’t that old. I also wondered about the longevity of erections in older men. Does this make me ageist? Maybe.

The narration was STELLAR with Michael Pauley—he rocks this! I’ve only done narration with Lennox books and they are some of my favorite, comfort MM books out there!

no words to describe it

Romantic, patriotic, tender, emotional, a dream come true, and honestly probably the best book by this author I've listened to yet. The narrator was fantastic as always but did a great job even keeping up with the character's ages. fantastic all around.

I didn't think that she could do it.

This might be the best one yet. Lucy Lennox outdid herself on this one. I would consider retitling this book "Made Wilde". The story line is great. Having every member of both families in the story is amazing. The epilogue is almost slapstick. Love and humor abound. Joy and even sadness trendsend the need to suspend disbelief in favor of simple believability. My only wish is that in the future we are taken back to the leap taken from Stonewall to 2015. A lot happened to the two families during that time that I really want to see. As always Michael Pauly did a fantastic reader's theater performance. I have read and heard the story. Next we will do a read along. Thank you Lucy.

Thank you Lucy Lennox!

I have never loved a book as much as this one. Doc and Grandpa's incredible love story with the Wildes and Marians coming together to celebrate. OMG! Thank you Lucy Lennox for these amazing books and especially this one. I can't wait to see what happens next.
