After years away from home, Tanner Dorsey is back and sorting through feelings that have him in a stranglehold. The hardened Marine will do anything for a fallen comrade, so when an accident leaves Finn Kelley fighting for his life, Tanner’s eager to be there for him. In fact, Tanner’s ready and willing to do anything Finn asks—especially if it means finally acting on the sexual tension that’s always kept him craving more.
Finn senses it too—when he brushes against Tanner’s stubbled jaw, when he inhales the scent of the T-shirt that clings to Tanner’s body like a second skin. Now that he’s more vulnerable than ever, Finn knows the time is right to take control, even if it means risking the heart and soul of their friendship. The bond they share goes beyond desire; it’s a bond of brotherhood, forged under conditions few could imagine. But once they cross that line, there will be no more secrets. No more boundaries. And no turning back.
The Farther He Runs is intended for mature audiences and includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
Praise for The Farther He Runs
“[Lynda] Aicher delivers an emotionally nuanced and poignant tale. . . . Aicher’s stoic, honorable Marines are exquisitely drawn, flaws and all. Deft plotting helps the author explore the very real struggles of two men in the post–‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ military, and a subplot of loss adds a painful but necessary layer to the story. This is an emotion-packed, satisfying read.”—Publishers Weekly
“The chemistry and connection between the men [are] great from the start. . . . Aicher does a really nice job letting us feel the intense bonds of their friendship and their closeness, while at the same time seeing how their feelings have changed to become more romantic and sexual.”—Joyfully Jay
“This story is heart-wrenching without being over-the-top. . . . It’s sweet; it made me cry and it had me rooting for [Tanner and Finn] as they navigated the rocky path from friends to lovers. Absolutely beautiful.”—Alpha Book Club
