Five years ago, everything went wrong. Braden Kirk and Rafe Jessen’s long-term relationship started unraveling. They stopped talking, fears mounted, then Braden walked in on Rafe and another man, completely misreading the situation. Without giving Rafe a chance to explain, Braden walks out. Out of their home, their relationship, and the game development company they started together in college.

After months of therapy to deal with the attempted rape Braden walked in on, Rafe begins to understand that his dominant tendencies in the bedroom aren’t a bad thing and that Braden’s submission is likely what scared his partner into silence. But Rafe isn’t ready to let go of the man he loves more than life itself. He arranges for himself and Braden to end up on the same charity cruise, knowing Braden won’t let his phobia—terror of vast, deep waters—rule him.

With a plan and twenty-eight days, Rafe is determined to get Braden back, make him see there’s nothing wrong with being submissive, and find a way to get Braden to stay with him when they get home to LA

What About Now by Grace R. Duncan is a sweet romance about two lovers getting a second chance. Braden broke up with his true love five years ago. His life has been just about work since then. His mom convinces him to go on a cruise for charity. He agrees, and get the surprise of his life. Braden is a sweet guy, who has been truly hurt. He is a one man kind of guy. He never could find a way to love anyone else but Rafe.
Rafe wants one thing, forgiveness. He has been stuck in time since the break up. He will do anything at all to win Braden back. Even tell him the real truth of why he left in the first place, knowing this could break them up for good.
I love books about second chances. This one is emotionally gripping and sweet all at the same time. Rafe is a determined man, and Braden needs him more than he thinks he does. These two deserve the second chance they got. When you want a sweet, hot romance, this is the book to pick up.
