Blurb: Malcolm Webber is still grieving the loss of his partner of twenty years to cancer. He’s buried his mind and feelings in his legal work and isn’t looking for another relationship. He isn’t expecting to feel such a strong attraction when he meets Hans Erickson—especially since the man is quite a bit younger than him.
Hans is an adventure writer with an exciting lifestyle to match. When he needs a tax attorney to straighten out an error with the IRS, he ends up on the other side of the handsome Malcolm’s desk. The heat between them is undeniable, but business has to come first. When it’s concluded, Hans leaps on the chance to make his move.
Malcolm isn’t sure he’s ready for the next chapter in his life. Hans is so young and active that Malcolm worries he won’t be able to hold his interest for long. Just when he’s convinced himself to take the risk and turn the page, problems at the law office threaten to end their love story before it can really begin.
Review: I have known about Andrew’s work for awhile now, but have never gotten around to reading one of his stories. Usually I am quite leery of reading a book by an author I have not read before, but for once I am glad to have taken the chance. Although there are parts that had me in tears, I enjoyed the humor that I found in it. What made me chose to read this one was the fact that one of the guys had lost his long time partner and was given a second chance at love. Well that and the fact that there was a bit of excitement and danger added in.
Malcolm had been in love with his partner since the moment they had met, and then lost him to cancer. After David had died, Malcolm was just going through the motions. He had pretty much gave up on living his life. That all ended when he helped a new client that made him stand up and take notice.
Hans is an amazing author who had a bit of trouble with the IRS. His last accountant had screwed up and he just didn’t want to pay what they were saying he owed. So he went to see a tax lawyer, and found a man that he wanted. Now all he had to do is to show Malcolm that age is just a number. Hans is patient, and understands what it is like to loose someone you love. He is going to show him that love will win in the end.
This story has some tragedy in it, as well as danger, excitement and a bit of hot sex. I really enjoyed reading this book, the details and descriptions were spot on. It felt like I was right there with them going through it all. I loved how even though there was a bit of pain in his life, Malcolm never really stopped trying. I loved how Hans was with him through it all, and how Malcolm helped Hans with his own scare that was way to close to home. I enjoyed watching their relationship build and grow stronger with each page.
I loved the little twists that this story gave me and the fact that I never knew what was going to happen next was perfect. This was a very sweet, warm and tender story that caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. It gave me everything I could ask for in a story and I would definitely recommend it. I can’t wait to read the rest of this authors work.
