Overall, I enjoyed this although the blurb for it is highly misleading, something that really bothers me about book promotion. As other reviewers have noted, the blurb implies that the primary focus of this story was going to be a young couple, Daniel and Billy, helping a senior couple, Chuck and Guy, repair their fractured relationship. While that does happen, it is really only one small sub-plot of many other sub-plots swirling around. First, there’s Billy’s relationship with his terminally ill mother. There’s Billy’s relationship with his ex Jason, whom Billy kicked to the curb for doing something that Billy had, in fact, given him permission to do. There’s Daniel’s relationship with his ex, Anthony, which was really kind of weird and not fully explained. We only get to meet Chuck because he becomes one of Billy’s clients and through which we get snippets of Chuck leading up to Guy’s entrance into the story. The “Heroes” the title is referring to are Chuck and Guy but other than a brief explanation for each, we really never get a feel for the depth and longevity of their relationship and the challenges they’ve faced across the years.
But then there’s the ending. Personally, I found it rather lacking. All of the issues the sub-plots laid out are suddenly wrapped up in the span of less than a chapter. Considering our young couple couldn’t even say those three magical words to each other yet, the ending left me wanting more than we got.
On a visit with his Mother, he meets with Dr. Jerome. Unfortunately, the update on her is not good and Billy is just overwhelmed. While he’s trying to compose himself from the upsetting news, he’s approached by Daniel, who he had already ran into at the hospital.
Daniel Richards has a wonderful job as a musical director. He’s produced “Therapy on Stage” that works with all special needs youngsters. It seems he has hopes to spread out his production to more places. Daniel seems somewhat dominant, fun and a little hyper. He has a very close friend in Maggie who brings some very colorful items to decorate his home.
As David and Billy start to get acquainted, Billy notices a sort of rudeness in Daniel when he get’s texts messages. It always seems Daniel breaks dates or has to immediately leave. Billy makes one mistake that could possibly end their exploration of a relationship.
Even with all the situations going on in Billy’s life, he befriends the cranky older man, Chuck Stuart. He finds out that Chuck is an American war veteran and has been holding on to a secret for over fifty years.
David C. Dawson is known for his “Delingpole Mysteries” about mystery, murder, and espionage. “Heroes In Love” was a wonderful surprise! This is his first, strictly, romantic novel and he did a spectacular job. It’s a warm, heartfelt, love story, filled with emotions and the ups and downs of these two men’s lives. David gives a very in-depth look at both Billy and Daniel’s lives, as very young boys and how they survived to where they are now.
There’s minor drama between Billy and Daniel but they always seem to take the time to talk things out and be honest with each other. I like the conversation that they have about love and what it really means to both of them. They both have to deal with things from their pasts and how to make amends.
David created such a wonderful character, Chuck Stuart, he absolutely stole my heart. This novel also brings art and music to the forefront. I was curious about the David Hockney painting “Peter Getting Out of Nick’s Pool” and looked it up.
I could just go on about this novel but I don’t want to reveal too much more because there’s so many great moments that are revealed in this novel. All I can say is if your looking for a superbly written romance story this is it!

MMy Thoughts and Review:
This was a sweet contemporary romance, interspersed with bittersweet moments that happen to just about all of us on this journey called LIFE.
Our two MCs, Daniel and Billy both work in healthcare to a degree. Daniel on the more artistic end of the spectrum as he incorporates music as a form of therapy and performance art into the lives of youth with disabilities of various types either mental or physical.
Billy is a once TV star turned social worker who left acting behind so he could be closer to his mom when she became ill. Now he visits clients each day to ensure they are having their medical needs met, as much as the health care system will allow, and hoping he is at least making some difference. The rest of the time he devotes to his mom and taking care of her.
As a mom who relies on her sons to take care of her, because of illness and disability, this book moved me in more ways than I intended for it to. It was filled with all kinds of wonderful emotions that ebbed and flowed like a gentle tide. There was never a feeling of being brow beaten with any particular one over another, however each one gave a slight tug on my soul.
This was a new to me author, and I enjoyed the experience of his storytelling immensely. I will be back for more in the future.
