While this book could be read on it's own, I highly recommend reading Oz first as it really sets the scene, introduces the characters and describes the world in greater detail than I found in this book. Oz's story was about the estate and accordingly it was very descriptive about those aspects. Milo has a different focus on the world, so the descriptions and observations in this book were on different items.
I loved getting to know Niall more - he was hard to get a read on in Oz's book, but this book showcased him in a very different light. Milo and Niall have a long history, having been family friends for years, so between that and the alternating POV, we get a great depth to the character development. I admit I didn't like Gideon at first, but he did redeem himself toward the end. I would have liked to see more of him, so hopefully we get a book or Novella about him in the future.
A great read, and series, that I highly recommend. I look forward to reading more from this author.
Book one Oz, was amazing, and this new book, Milo, is just as great ,and definitely a very worthy read.
As with all books in Lily Morton's super series, they can be read as a standalone, though with so many characters popping in and out, reading the prior books ( at least Oz) will help you with who's who and what's what, especially since Niall and Milo, feature heavily in Oz, so the first book is a terrific lead up into this 2nd one. As with all Morton's books, they're told 1st person POV, alternating POV, (Milo & NIall)
As you've come to expect with this fabulous series, the narrative was tight, well thought out, funny, sad,full of sass and snark, some emotional feels, and smoking hot when our guys finally stopped dancing around each other. Cannot wait for the next book, which by rights looks to be Gideon ( Milo's brother and Niall's ex- FWB) and yeah, Gideon seems to need a savior.
Available on Kindle Unlimited, it was so damn good I bought it, just like I did with OZ. Trigger warning in the front, re: domestic violence. Highly, highly recommended reading.

Milo Ramsay, fine art picture restorer and assistant to Niall at the Chi an Mor estate in Cornwall.
Niall Fawcett, estate manager of the Earl of Ashworth's ancestral home, Chi an Mor, and long time best friend of Milo's brother, Gideon.
The story begins five years previously. Milo's partner at that time, Thomas, subjected Milo to psychological abuse and rough bullying but Milo felt powerless to leave him. Milo felt worthless. Milo's brother Gideon, asks their friend Niall to find out if Milo is okay as he suspects Milo is going through a tough patch and Gideon's been unable to contact him at all. Niall goes to Thomas' flat to discover Milo being verbally tormented and harassed by Thomas. He checks that Milo wants to leave, then brings Milo to a good friend's ancestral home (Silas, from Oz, Finding Home Book 1) to recuperate at Chi An Mor in Cornwall.
Niall is, and always has been, infinitely patient with Milo, who stammers when he is nervous or upset and it's taken a while for Milo to put in place coping mechanisms to help him. No one allows Milo the time to say what he wants to say, other than Niall. Milo unfurls like a bud in sunshine in Niall's company and care.
In the present, thrown together, sharing Niall's house while Silas and Oz are in London on a family emergency, Niall and Milo find a common purpose taking care of Oz and Silas' baby daughter. It's pure torture for Milo who has fancied Niall since forever but sharing space with him opens doors that up until now have remained firmly closed. Niall is the best friend of Milo's brother, Gideon and there is a very important reason Milo can't entertain any romantic connection with Niall. Niall seems to have been quite adventurous in his love life (putting it politely), a fact that Milo is only too well aware of, and Milo reckons, why on earth would Niall want Milo anyway? In any case, Milo thinks that he himself is rubbish between the sheets, so what's the point of entertaining notions of being with Niall, when Milo thinks it would only lead to Milo being embarrassed, wouldn't it?
As their relationship takes on a deeper meaning than just friendship, Niall struggles to prevent himself from swooping in to save Milo each time he needs to, Milo is precious to Niall, he just wants to keep him safe. But Milo does not want another "Thomas" taking over his life and avoiding becoming close to Niall fits the bill, he knows he needs to become his own hero.
I'm a big fan of Lily Morton's books. The snark and sass ensure each book is entertaining as well as addictive. Her characters are well developed and real, Milo is quietly soft and gorgeous and Niall is big, bold and beautiful. I've never visited Cornwall but I can smell the sea and the lavender in Chi an Mor's gardens, hear the surf on the shore and the wind shushing in the grass, the crisp leaves underfoot as they explore the woods and the distant chugging of the tractor in the south field. Lily's descriptive narrative seems almost incidental, you don't need to plough through paragraphs (see what I did there) without any dialogue to know what the characters are seeing, smelling, sensing. It's just part of the story but you're there, with them in the moment (well not really with them - because that would be really awkward.... darn it Lily, you're infectious!).
Characters from Oz (Finding Home Book 1) are also in this book, as the location and family are included in Milo's story too. I thoroughly recommend reading Oz because it's wonderful. Milo (Finding Home Book2) by Lily Morton can be read as a standalone and is a M/M romance with a HEA told from two points of view. It includes two men who melt your heart, pretty damn hot love scenes, beautiful Cornwall and is laugh out loud funny and brilliant. Highly recommended.
Oh, and just a heads up...it's chaise longue NOT lounge, it's French you know.
I loved Dylan and Gabe, then I fell for Asa and Jude, before Henry and Ivo stole my heart, only to give up their spot to Silas and Oz.
But now, let's just say Milo and Niall took my heart, wrapped it up in bubble wrap and very carefully squished it in tight to their amazing characters.
It's difficult to summarise why I love Lily Morton's world so much. Is it because they're so very British, the settings familiar to me, the language and jokes those of my own childhood and teenage years?
Is it because she has an incredible way of throwing you right into the heart of her books because of the incredibly visual nature of her narratives?
Or is it the snark and the witty retorts which always stop the romances from becoming too twee?
I have no idea. I just know they settle deep into my soul and bring me joy. Nothing would make me happier than spending an evening with this bunch of inter connected characters drinking good beer and eating cockles on the Cornish seafront.
With Niall and Milo, Lily gives us a slightly different take on the brother's best friend trope and I was only one page into this book when I wanted to kill someone.
Milo is a joy, but he's been pushed deep inside himself and it takes the solid presence and support of Niall to give him the space to breathe again.
Niall doesn't take over, much as his strength and forceful personality would like to, instead he cajoles and encourages and reminds Milo of what he can do.
Milo might be a sweetheart, but Niall was just my cup of tea, right down to the ribbing of Oz and the firm friendships with Silas and Milo's enigmatic brother Gideon.
Speaking of which, I'm saddened to hear he won't be getting his own rare breeds farmer (you promised me him some time now Lily so I'll let you off ;) ) but I absolutely cannot wait to meet the special someone who is going to see behind that brash shiny exterior to the true gold beneath.
This book is gorgeous, it's stupendously hot of course, but it's about so much more than the sex. It's about family, finding a home, and a psychopathic cat who might just love you after all.
Niall and Milo are so cute with banter and snark that Lily Morton does best. Yet again she has created another couple to fall in love with!
