Book #1 Retrograde
Published by Love Lane Books Limited
Co-Pilot Lachlan Donaghue wakes up in hospital, a survivor of the crash of Flight HA1710, with memory loss and the suspicion that he could be at fault for the tragic accident. When everything becomes too much he goes home to hide, back to the small Scottish town he grew up in and to his family home.
Rory Kendrick watches the news, sees every hour of the disaster unfold but never thinks that Lachlan was in the middle of it all. Or that his friend will be forced to come back home to hide and to heal. What Lachlan needs is a friend, not a lover, but sometimes the lines are just too blurred to make any sense.

I have to say, Retrograde has got to be about the best read I ever read from author RJ Scott. She is usually an author who comes up with the most amazing stories but all of them, at least those that I had read, were sweet romances that made me smile goofy all the time. They were light hearted, they were fast reads, and even if the characters met some angst and frustrations along the way, they never made me feel uncomfortable enough to DNF or fast forward. With Retrograde, it was enough to make me pause and go to the author page once more, just to make sure I did not misread the author name.
This was way better than good.
This book is just the first of six planned in a series which will involve other writers like Amber Kell and Serena Yates. It revolves around Flight HA1710 which crashed under mysterious circumstances. Although only seven or so people died, the fact is, they died. The crash changed a lot of people's lives, those who were on the flight and those who had connections to those on that flight. In this first installment, we have front and center, Co-Pilot Lachlan Donaghue. His first memories are lights flashing, a searing pain that is bone deep and the voices that urge him to live. He finally wakes up to a living nightmare, unable to remember what had happened on that flight. His earliest memories are those of the week before and he was safe. What he thought of as a support group, his airlines, are not giving him the moral support he needed. Who he needs is someone he had relied on for as far as he could remember but that man is out of reach. Out of touch.
Rory Kendrick heard about the crash and when he realized it was his Lachlan involved, he sped to his bedside only to be blocked from seeing him. When he finally gained entry, it was with Lachlan needing his support and he gave it. He took him home and gave him the care he needed. He knew that although Lachlan was in a place that no one would want to be in, he still wanted him and needed him. He wanted Lachlan back and this time, he was going to make sure Lachlan stayed.
And so begins the story of how Rory gains back his best friend and lover, Lachlan. How the two men find themselves at a crossroads of their lives. With the crash of Flight HA1710 casting a dark shadow over them and all, they realize that love is the one thing they can rely on.
Needless to say, this is one fantastic read and I highly recommend it. Enough said.
