Blurb: Paul Summerfield is stunned by the gentle reminder it has been over a year since he and his partner, Evan Akkerman, have made love. He vows to take Evan out for Valentine’s Day. Dinner and sex. Lots of sex. There’s only one catch—he’s supposed to be in San Francisco that week cataloging the art collection of an important new client. No problem, he’ll just change his schedule and cut his trip short by a day.
In San Francisco, Paul struggles with regrets and the fear his love is slipping away from him. Every call to Evan seems only to prove the distance between them is increasing. All this, and a key piece of his client’s catalog is caught up in customs. To keep their Valentine’s date, Paul will have to choose between the career he’s built over fifteen years and the man he’s loved for just as long.

Review: Evan lets Paul know one morning that it’s been a year since they have made love. Paul knows that Evan never complains, and since he brought this matter up it weighed heavy on him.
Paul promises to make it up to Evan on Valentine’s Day by taking him out for dinner, a pleasant walk and making love afterwards. What Paul didn’t expect was to be stuck in San Francisco, waiting on customs so he could finish a job. When little things begin to click Paul gets nervous that he may be losing the one thing more important than his work.
Paul has to choose his lifetime of building up his reputation and career or the love of the man he has spent as much time with.
When Was The Last Time is a very heartfelt story. It makes you think about your own relationship and things we take for granted. I really liked both characters a lot. The story is a character-based one with lots of growth, a bit of suspense as we wait to see how this plays out and a sweet romance.
I was torn between low and moderate on the heat rating but chose moderate though there is only one hot sex scene because of the length of the book.
If you like short and sweet romance, with a good character driven the plot, Valentine’ Day stories and some mild/ moderate man-sex, I think you will like this one!
