Now sixteen years later the two men are together again, but the reunion is far from sweet.

Can they work together to overcome their pasts and build a future together, or is it too late?


Book Review

In 'Capturing Perfection' Trina Lane leads the reader through the story at a leisurely, but constant pace, revealing just the right amount of information to keep it interesting.

Throughout the story, I was reminded that good relationships don't just happen. Even the best and brightest of unions needs constant vigilance, combined with dedication to remain that way. Clay and Logan didn't give up on each other. They found the courage to overcome the issues standing between them. I appreciated how all the other characters were woven into a family network, supporting each other and becoming an intricate part of Clay and Logan's success.

There are lots of very torrid love scenes in the book. Their physical lovemaking was a huge part of their relationship, but what I loved about it is that these lovers didn't just make lust. Each tryst was a sensual celebration of their love and commitment to each other. Their relationship is enviable, the kind of which most people only dream.

'Capturing Perfection' is a story of bravery and determination in overcoming obstacles. It's an intense, romantic look at what is possible with unconditional love. “Capturing Perfection' captured my heart, and if you are a hopeless romantic like me, it may very well capture yours as well.
