The characters were real to me as if I could be friends with them right now.
Also there was the discussion of one of the characters having HIV & the mentioning was well done but not preachy or medical.
I can't say enough good things about the read except I want a part 2....3,4....
I loved this book!
It was sweet and well written.
The romance was there along with the innocence of finding love.
However, the only thing that really deterred this book from being a 5 star for me was length. If that author had taken the time to develop more for me as a reader, by adding 30 or so more pages, then I would have come out very satisfied.
Sadly, I felt parts of slightly lacking due to the books length. Although the story itself was beautiful and sexy.
The sex itself in the book wasn't very erotic. But the parts that weren't actual sex, were.
I'm not sure if the author intended this or was afraid to write about a (spoiler alert) HIV gay man having sex- and maybe that's why the sex itself wasn't played with more. My mother is HIV positive so I've grown up more than 1/2 of my life dealing with the virus, which is one of the biggest reasons I read this book. I loved that the author didn't make it a huge deal with Steve and Mike, that she didn't give in to mass hysteria and ignorance and focused more on the two grown adults loving each other and willing to overcome an obstacle to be together. I give her huge Kudos for that!
I would highly recommend this book.
The only thing you need to understand as a reader is the book is short and will leave you mildly unsatisfied at the end, because you'll love it so much and need more.
P.S. To the author- Cardeno C- Please write a squeal to this. I'd love to read it. (Wishful thinking, I know, but I had to note it.)
It's still a good May/December romance. Well written. Not much angst.
POV ... 1st person
Stand alone or series... stand alone
Would I recommend it ... Yes
Did it give me a book hangover... slight
Would I read it again ... Yes
Tanner Sellers is much too young and much too fragile looking to be running the diner which his late friend, Jesse, left him. Steve Taus, Jesse's widower, is totally opposite in body parts (large and bearish) but contemplative and circumspect, even more so now that Jesse's gone.
How they get together, move along together, and stay together, is sweetly told and punctuated by a couple of other interesting characters, including Tanner's best friend, who happens to be the very straight son of Jesse and Steve. Nice, chewy, cozy appetizer of a love story here. Enjoy it.
Great short story....ENJOY !!!
