Re-Release of 2009 novel.
A retired marine, Logan is methodical and conservative. Richard is a liberal pacifist who is pathologically afraid of guns.
Yet the minute Logan sets eyes on Richard, his heart turns over like an old car engine and it isn’t long before his motor is revved and Richard is in the driver’s seat–even if it seems like each man is driving a different car.
Richard Hunter is parenting his grandson, and the kid–Nick–has had it rough. Richard vows nothing will stop him from creating a loving and stable home. Not even a tempting, red-hot relationship with a very attractive man. However, when Richard looks into Logan’s blue eyes it’s tough to stay focused.
It’s never easy to become a family, what with a temperamental eight-year-old, disapproving outsiders, and outright extortion attempts. But when push comes to shove, both Logan and Richard are committed family men who want to make a loving home for a little boy who needs them. Together, they’re planning to form a Family Unit, and they won’t let anything stand in their way.
Family Unit is available in audiobook format: HERE
★★★★★ “Family Unit is a reread on my shelf, mainly because it deals with a couple in their forties, and I love its humor. Both characters have had a previous relationship that didn’t work out for various reasons, but they’ve been lucky enough to find each other this late in the game” — The Novel Approach
★★★★★ “I cannot say enough good things about this book. The writing was truly amazing, interesting and engaging and the characters are both loveable and well fleshed out. It is a true testament that love can come in many shapes and sizes, especially true for family units (as the title suggests) which may not be a mother and a father. ” — Hearts on Fire Reviews
★★★★¾ “Maxfield kept the story simple and realistic, adding just the right amount of conflict, and some suitable trials and tribulations as Richard and Logan to navigate the early days of their relationship. I was actually impressed with the world building in Family Unit because many times in a contemporary story, this element goes by the wayside and yet I could visualize so much of the world inhabited by Logan, Richard, Nick, and their friends and foes.” — Joyfully Jay
