Another excellent m/m romance novel from Amy Lane. Ward-to-lover story with a heart of gold. Joe rescues strays and tries to show them that there are people willing to help just because, people who don't expect anything in return. Casey is one of his strays, and Casey sticks. Casey loves Joe but it takes him a lot of years and a lot of growing up to convince Joe to see him as something other than a boy. I loved this slow building romance and the two lead characters. Very nice.
