Kurzbeschreibung

As his world collapses, love opens his heart.

Robbie Grayson has always felt like a bit of an outsider in the Chester family, though he’s related by blood. An orphan taken in at a young age, he is further set apart by a limp inflicted by a childhood illness.

Nevertheless, he’s content enough with his quiet country life—until a mercurial wastrel named Charles Worthington explodes into it. And Robbie is assigned to play nursemaid to an invalid with an attitude.

Injured in a carriage accident, Charles arrives at the Chester estate drunk as a lord and with empty pockets. Despair consumes him as his broken body slowly heals, but the kindness of quiet, thoughtful Robbie saves him from drowning in self-pity.

Over chess matches and conversation, these polar opposites challenge each other to break out of old patterns, until desire burns through the thin veneer of pure friendship. Yet their passion could destroy the family bonds they value so highly. Especially when someone catches wind of their relationship—and threatens blackmail.

Warning: This book contains hot man-on-man lovin’ between not-quite kissin’ cousins.

HASH(0x8a42c3b4) von 5 Sternen Book Review by Josie Goodreads 12. September 2014

For original review see The Prism Book Alliance Blog online

Orphan Robbie Grayson has built a home for himself within his uncle’s family. He spends his days helping to run the estate and most of the time he is able to convince himself that he belongs. When his uncle announces that his cousin Samuel will be returning from his European Tour Robbie realizes that his own place in the family is a mere illusion, he’s not needed, not anymore, soon he will have to make his own way in the world, something that fills him with fear and foreboding. Before he does so though he is asked to help his distant cousin Charles settle in as the Chester family welcomes yet another lost sheep into the fold.

Invalid Charles Worthington arrives at the Chester estate a broken man, in spirit as well as body. Now destitute and with two broken legs Charles wallows in despair wondering if he will ever be well enough again to work and to provide for himself. Money never used to be a worry but then he was a wastrel, living each day with no care in the world, but now penniless and a cripple Charles is scared and helpless with no idea how to turn his life around.

Fierce need and attraction runs between Robbie and Charles from the first day they meet and the more time they spend with each other the hotter it runs, but they have to be careful, neither man wants anyone else to find out. Can the friendship between the two men heal them both, fortifying them to face a new and uncertain future?

When Samuel returns to the estate Charles sees in him a reflection of the man he used to be for Samuel wears the air of entitlement and authority without the consideration and compas-sion for others. Samuel is also in trouble, trouble that could bring both shame to the Chester family and ruin to Robbie and Charles.

Mending Him is a delightful novel of contradictions. Charles and Robbie are two men who appear on the surface poles apart but deep down they are more alike than either of them imagine. Robbie is the quiet one, with a hidden sense of abandon running underneath the surface. He’s an intriguing mix of formal and relaxed that veils a sharp mind and a wicked sense of humor.

Charles is worldlier. Used to living his life with a devil may care attitude Charles lost everything because of the mysterious illness which caused the carriage accident which broke his legs. Charles is grateful to be given a roof and a home on the Chester estate, a home which led to Robbie. When he looks at Samuel Charles feels nothing but relief that he is not that kind of man anymore.

I love the historical novels Bonnie Dee and Summer Devon create, I’ve not yet read one that I didn’t like. They are always absorbing and fascinating, with interesting plots and happy end-ings. Mending Him is written from various POV’s and as much as I liked Robbie Charles was my favorite, he was a perfect example of a bad thing changing someone for the better. Charles realized how he lived his life before was stupid and naive and he vowed to change for the better, putting others, especially Robbie, before him. The only thing I found a bit disappointing is we never got to a resolution to what Charles mysterious illness was, it’s only a minor thing, and didn’t affect my enjoyment of the story, it was more a niggle.

I loved Mending Him and recommend it to anyone who loves historical stories with wounded heroes that need lots of tender care.

Suffice it to say that I enjoyed this book. I have nothing to add to other reviewers’ excellent comments, but would like to join them in expressing disappointment that Charles’ mysterious illness was never diagnosed. If this “armchair doctor” were to wager, I’d put my money on multiple sclerosis. I was struck with how all his symptoms perfectly match a case of early-stage MS that I am personally familiar with. But I would like to learn from a sequel that I am sorely mistaken. Charles is way too loveable for such a cruel fate.

Lovely romance. Robbie comes out of his shell, falling for Charles, and Charles becomes a better person, wanting to help sweet Robbie. I like the setting in the family mansion, and the secondary characters. I agree it's a bit of a pity we never discover what exactly ails Charles, but I like the ending. I feel they can really be happy together like this.

I really enjoy books by these authors so I didn't hesitate to download 'Mending Him' to my kindle. I really enjoyed it. "Robbit" and Charles were wonderful heroes. One of the wonderful surprises was the great character of Lenore, she really grew on me and by the end of the book I adored her! She supported Robbie and Charles and she instantly went from annoying to endearing.

The plot drew me in but (possible spoilers) what pulled me out of the story was Robbie was a little too honest even though he didn't reveal much to his uncle about Charles and his relationship - he didn't deny it and for the time period it rang untrue. In the beginning of the story Robbie was afraid to admit his feeling for men and with good reason. It wasn't acceptable - you'd be taken to a mad house or killed if discover so for him to suddenly stop feeling that way even with a family member quite dear to him - i didn't find believable. There were just some risks you didn't take - his life literally depended on it. Charles at least understood that. Luckily the heroes still have their HEA but was disappointed by the way it happened.

Another thing is that the heroes were a little too perfect. Robbie was upset at Charles and I'd found it realistic had he taken that anger out on him but he controlled it because he saw the error of his ways but all couples fight and doesn't seem to be the case here. Lastly, I liked the characters were confident that they were loved by the other but they expressed it in their thoughts and never talked about it, they just assumed they'd be together - no matter what. It would have been nice to see a discussion on this. Charles might be passable because Robbie only finally admitted feelings for men with him but Charles had experience so Robbie's confidence was a little less believable.

Overall though, I really did enjoy the story and would recommend it.

*3.5 stars*

My new *thing* is historical romance. I'm actively seeking them out, and I find that I've been loving this genre more and more. While I've read a number of Bonnie Dee's books before, this was my first experience with the writing pair of Dee/Devon, and I think these two authors did a very nice job meshing their styles. Overall, this book was very successful, though not exceptional for me.

"Mending Him" is a lovely romance about two men with physical ailments. Robbie has had a limp and some physical deformity since childhood, and Charles has been fighting a mysterious ailment that, combined with a gambling/spending habit, has robbed him of all his money. Though this story could have been a big downer, it wasn't. It was charming and uplifting, these two guys finding love together.

My only issue with the story is that I found the chemistry a bit lacking between the two MCs. I felt like they were thrown together due to circumstances, and there really wasn't that spark between them. It seemed more like a relationship of convenience to me, and I wasn't all that taken by them as a pair. The story was also a little slow for my tastes, and I had no problem putting it down and going about my day.

However, that being, said, this story was a nice one. I enjoyed it overall and would recommend it to any M/M historical lover.
