After the Scrum (2014) Dahlia Donovan

Caddock Stanford lost his brother, lost his place on the national rugby team, and became the parent to his young nephew. So he wants a place to start over, to make a new life for himself and Devlin.

“Looe’s a brilliant place for starting fresh. Oh, and Ruth makes the best custard tarts. Don’t eat them on Fridays.”


“Her husband, Stevie, makes them and he’s rubbish at it.”

Francis Keen came back to Looe.

A few drunks outside of a gay club in Vauxhall had taught him a rather bitter lesson about the dangers of alcohol and being out of the closet. They’d cornered him in an alley and beaten him rather badly.

He’s actually quite happy being back in Looe, where he has an interior design business, friends, and grandmother who loved and needs him (even if she can be a bit overbearing).

This story set set before the Sin Bin series, and we get to meet several of the characters from that series.

It’s sweet and enjoyable and Devlin is adorable–as well as the perfect reason for Caddock to move to a now town to rebuild himself and be in a good place for his nephew.
