Only love can heal an impossibly broken heart 

There’d forever been a thread running through Trevor Estes’s life—his son, Riley, strong and constant like a heartbeat. But when Riley is killed in combat, everything in Trevor’s life unravels into a mess he doesn’t know how to mourn.

Then Jesse Byrne, Riley’s friend and platoon mate, arrives on Trevor’s doorstep with a box of Riley’s things. Jesse’s all-too-familiar grief provides an unlikely source of comfort for Trevor: knowing he’s not alone is exactly what he needs.

Trevor never imagined he’d find someone who fills his heart with hope again. As the pair celebrate Riley’s memory, their unique bond deepens into something irreplaceable—and something neither man can live without.

But diving into a relationship can’t be so simple. Being together means Trevor risking the last link he has to his son…leaving Jesse to wonder if he’ll ever be enough, or if Trevor will always be haunted by the past.

Point of Contact by Melanie Hansen should be read with a couple of boxes of tissues. This story tugs at the heartstrings and does not let go. So much love and pain in this story.
Riley, we meet him we know him get to love him, and his best friend Jesse.  Taking in a war zone and planning a future.
We meet Riley’s dad and get his love and pain too. All the emotions this drags up makes you so wrapped up in the characters and the love.
This is a read you need some time alone with. It is a lot to process and feels. But so worth reading. Seriously if you love a good tear jerker as much as I do this is a must-read. You won’t be able to forget this book I know I won’t.
