The Caretaker is the second book in The Sin Bin series by Dahlia Donovan. It can be read as a standalone but is best read in order so you can enjoy the building of the previous characters. It is just as good as the Wanderer and is another sweet romance story. I enjoy Dahlia’s writing, she breathes life into her characters that has you feeling like one of the gang.
This wonderful story is about Freddie Whittle and Taine Afoa. Both come from completely different backgrounds, Freddie, has a heart of gold and is a nurse working with cancer patients but losing them can be heart breaking and wearing on the soul, but he loves it. His busy life doesn’t leave much room for a relationship but when he meets a tall dark and handsome he starts to wonder what could be. Is he ready for a relationship? Could this man be interested in him?
Taine Afoa is a retired rugby player and not looking for love. He enjoys relationships but enjoys his time by himself but when he meets a caring, cute young man he interest is peaked. He finds himself thinking about the young man but is he too old and is he ready for a relationship? Can Taine get over the age difference? Is he ready to settle down?
This book captured my heart as did the first book. It is a beautiful story of love and acceptance. There are moments of sadness and joy and the characters will have you laughing with their comradery and their antics.
