"[A] brilliantly written LGBTQ+ take on the classic small-town romance." --Booklist

High school wasn't the right time or place for their relationship to grow, but now, fifteen years later, a chance encounter changes both of their lives forever.

No one in the charming river town of New Hope, Pennsylvania, needs to know that Vince Amato plans on flipping The Hideaway Inn to the highest bidder and returning to his luxury lifestyle in New York City. He needs to make his last remaining investment turn a profit...even if that means temporarily relocating to the quirky small town where he endured growing up. He's spent years reinventing himself and won't let his past dictate his future.

But on his way to New Hope, Vince gets stuck in the middle of nowhere and his past might be the only thing that can get him to his future. Specifically Tack O'Leary, the gorgeous, easygoing farm boy who broke his heart and who picks Vince up in his dilapidated truck.

Tack comes to the rescue not only with a ride but also by signing on to be the chef at The Hideaway for the summer. As Vince and Tack open their hearts to each other again, Vince learns that being true to himself doesn't mean shutting down a second chance with Tack--it means starting over and letting love in.

Carina Adores is home to romantic love stories where LGBTQ+ characters find their happily-ever-afters.

Review quote

"[A] brilliantly written LGBTQ+ take on the classic small-town romance, which beautifully celebrates inclusiveness while also delivering a boldly sensual love story that is effectively amplified by generous amounts of red-hot sexual chemistry and snarky wit." --Booklist

"Readers longing for an idyllic escape will appreciate this breezy contemporary." --Publishers Weekly

"Stover weaves a blissfully feel-good story, packed with missed opportunities, throbbing desire and a host of delightful supporting characters." --Minka Guides

"What stands out to me in Philip William Stover's The Hideaway Inn is so much more than the sparkling writing and strong dialogue and delicious plot trajectory; all of that is there in spades but what had me bawling on and off throughout the length of this beautiful, uniquely lovely story was the inclusiveness that Stover so masterfully weaves." -- Chick and Chickadee
