Nathan Bridges hadn’t intended to settle down in his home town of Porthkennack—he just ended up staying after saving the family business from ruin. The truth is, Nathan can’t stop himself from stepping in when problems arise. He’s a fixer, the man everyone turns to. But even fixers can’t solve everything.

When Nathan’s sister needs an organ transplant, it’s his stepbrother, Mack, who the family turns to as Rosie’s only potential living donor. Nathan’s curiosity about the stepbrother he’s never met turns to shock when he realises that Mack is his latest—and hottest ever—one-night stand.

Nathan and Mack agree to forget their single night together, but that’s easier said than done. When Mack moves in to Nathan’s place to recuperate after surgery, it’s not just the sexual tension between them that keeps growing. Against all the odds, and despite Mack’s wariness of intimacy, the two men grow close enough that Nathan begins to wonder what it would take to mend the rift that’s kept Mack and his father estranged for over a decade . . . and whether Mack might consider staying with Nathan in Porthkennack for good. 

Tribute Act by Joanna Chambers is the 8th book in the Porthkennack Series. I was not lost starting with this book. I will admit there probably are things I did miss but really didn’t affect my enjoyment of the story itself.
Nathan has come to settle into his childhood home. He his sister needs an organ transplant and the match is his stepbrother Mack. Nathan takes a lot of responsibility for things he cannot change in this book. He really carries the weight of the world sometimes.
Mack, he is prickly and doesn’t get close to people easily.  He has a ton of layers, and as I read this story I slowly was getting more and more. He is a deep character I truly loved him.
Some notes I had when reading this book.  One it is written in dual POV.  I liked that part cause it lets me get into both character’s heads.   There is mention of some triggers here.  Domestic and emotional abuse.  Violence, kidnapping, self-harm, and panic attacks. 
This is a very emotional read and I so glad I picked it up. I loved this story and would love more like them in the future.
