As Sure as the Sun by Elle Keaton


The universe is trying to tell Sacha Bolic something. A fire escape collapses under him, he lands in crap, and a killer barely misses his target... all in the same few seconds. That's on top of a long list of mishaps and job dissatisfaction. Not one to ignore signals when they're shoved in his face, Sacha retires and uses his savings to buy an old building in Skagit, Washington. With a little help from DIY videos, he’s going to bring it back to its former glory. And, yeah, it’s a metaphor. If he makes one change, others will follow…

Seth Culver avoids entanglements, romantic or otherwise. Who needs them? He’s learned the hard way that people betray you or leave. Still, Seth finds people compelling. He kind of collects them, learning their secrets before letting them go their own way. His commitment to no commitments may have met its match in Sacha. Handsome and hot, Sacha seems to offer a permanence that scares Seth more than anything ever has. Seth will have to decide if he’s going to grab life by the balls or keep watching from the sidelines.

A box of inconsequential belongings hidden for decades in the old building hints at lives imagined but not lived, reminding them both there are no guarantees in love, or this thing called life.

A standalone in the Accidental Roots series, HEA, and hot m/m. 18+

We met Sacha earlier in this series, while he was working undercover for the Marshall service. At 39 he starts to realise his mortality, quits the service, and moves to Skagit to renovate an old building. Seth has also moved to Skagit to be near his half-brother, Adam, and is trying to start a gardening business.

Both Sacha and Seth have had difficult childhoods and neither has had a serious relationship. Seth is an easy-going guy and Sacha is the more serious and stoic one and they make a pretty good match right from the start. This was a relationship that from the beginning felt like it was in it for the long haul, without too much drama. However, no relationship is entirely drama free.

Seth is a history buff and when Sacha finds a box with some old letters and a photograph of two young men during his renovations, Seth starts investigating to find out who the men are. When Seth gets to the bottom of it and we learn Owen and Theodore’s story, it is absolutely heart wrenching and resulted in me shedding plenty of tears.

As Sure as the Sun is a lovely romantic read and this book has less suspense and danger than the previous books in the series and I didn’t mind a bit. I enjoyed the intimacy between the men, their discoveries about Owen and Theodore, and watching them fall in love when they didn’t expect or want to. A solid four stars from me.

Author, photographer, rare Pacific Northwest Native, Elle grew up in Seattle, WA., with the Cascade Mountain range to the east and Olympics to the west. Less than two hours northwest lie the majestic San Juan Islands. To the northeast is the Methow Valley and the scrub deserts of Eastern Washington. Geography ripe with material.

A graduate of Western Washington University, Elle has a BS in biology which taught her to be tenacious. The closest she has come to biology since then is having two kids. Like an experiment or something. She’s lived in four states (none of which were gaseous), London England, and Hong Kong; always knows what time it is, and has no problem finding parking even in the most difficult places. Cannot balance a checking account.

Elle's series Accidental Roots, mostly set in the Skagit Valley of Western Washington, will make its debut spring of 2017. Storm Season is tender, sometimes irreverent, full of nosy neighbors and help when the hero didn’t think he needed it. Writing has always been a passion but not something she was able to take seriously until recently. Now her head is full of ideas and not enough time in each day.
