This was my first book by BG Thomas and I quite liked it. I've read similar Cinderella stories before, about abandoned young men taken in by the older, established man, and it can be a fun trope. This story is well-written and I enjoyed the descriptions of Gabe and the deeper themes of forgiveness and paying it forward. There was some nice built up of UST before the characters ended up in bed and all in all it was a sweet, relatively low-angst romance. Five stars from me and I'll definitely read more from BG.
