- "This is the first story I have read by author Robert Winter and I cannot wait to read more.. his writing and storytelling ability are both beautifully brilliant, with characters that are full of emotion, and their plight and struggles real." Alpha Book Club
- "September is the debut novel from this author, and I'm happy to say it was one of those 'can't put it down' books. You know, one where the house could be collapsing around you while reading, yet you wouldn't notice." It's About the Book
- "There may be a significant age difference between them and echoes of a deceased beloved lover and a truckload of pride between the two of them, but their chemistry is off the charts. Every time they're together I could almost hear the crackling between them." Boy Meets Boy Reviews

Robert Winter has written these characters with such depth of feeling. I mourned with David. I felt his loneliness. I understood his belief that he had had his one shot at happiness and love.
But...serendipity, karma or the alignment of the stars stepped in and gave him a chance at a new beginning. He just had to believe he could have that deep connection with another soul mate. He had to come to terms with his loss and believe he could find happiness again with another man, a younger man.
That connection, that tentative exploration of "what if" happens gradually and builds as his heart begins to open up to Brandon, a man more than twenty years his junior. The pull between the two men is undeniable but fraught with obstacles real and imagined. Both David and Brandon have to overcome their fears and prejudices. Feelings of worth, the age gap, their status in lifestyle and the opinions of friends. All these road blocks are written in such a way as to be wholly believable. The obstacles and fears both men faced rang true.
As with most true life relationships, the happiness you've come to believe in hits a snag. Will you be able to overcome this devastating blow to your happiness? Will this mean the end of your relationship or will it bring you closer in the end?
There is so much emotional feeling in David and Brandon's love story and every one of them rings true. Nothing feels contrived or written to fill a quota of word count like some authors seem to do.
Robert Winter has written a love story that flows with honest feelings and understanding of the human heart. This is a well written story of love finding a way to ever lasting happiness with the one person who makes you whole. A beautiful love story and one I will read again.
The chemistry and early relationship growth between Brandon and David ranges from sweet to flirtatious to warm and awkward, and is believable and engaging, as is their struggles with their desires and the obstacles to their relationship. “September” does a good job portraying the difficulty in conquering the kind of emotional hurdles that come with losing a loved one and being in different life stages. It also manages to tell an emotional story without relying heavily on the inherent angst of David’s loss, instead focusing mostly on the emotional difficulties David and Brandon must overcome separately and as a couple.
I am very grateful that this little gem popped up on my recommendations listing as I would be very upset to see this one pass by me. This has everything I want in a MM romance. There is dilemmas, romance and RL. I want to friend this author in RL just for writing this book!
Lately all I have read is these cheesy over the top MM romances but this book is exactly what I look for. Lots and lots of pages which means value for money which is always a bonus but more importantly you get to really meet the characters and see their lives build. There is such feelings in the RL struggles written. What David went through… broke my heart. And to have the connection with Brandon?
We meet David who is a successful partner in a law firm who happens to injure himself doing a Crossfit exercise. Which means he is referred to a PT being Brandon. The instant connection they had was wonderfully written. There is a big age gap between them and this is something that David struggles with along with his quilt of moving on from his old lover.
Brandon is I think very mature for his age even though he does have struggles with his pride but I think the way his character was written, just made him seem to much more real to me.
There are 2 life changing events that happens in this story and they were so beautifully written on how things went down. I won’t say much as I will give the story away too much but that letter? Seriously Mr Winter you made me cry!
I am hopeless at writing reviews so I hope you give this book a chance as you will not regret it one bit. And I am anxiously waiting for the next book from this author. He will be here long term if he produces more fabulous work like this one.
Well done on an excellent debut novel! Looking forward to ALL your future works!

Each one on their own would have been a delight to find in a debut novel but to get all three really was a pleasure.
This book also has one of my favourite tropes - a May to December romance - or, as David's friends out it, more of a May to September one. The 22 year age gap didn't bother me in the slightest, I loved the connection that David and Brandon had.
There's drama and there's angst, but it never sways into what I like to call dramady, where it feels like something which happens as a plot tick box only rather than a natural progression of the narrative.
There's so many parts of this book I want to rave about but I think it works best when uncovered during reading. I'm glad I wasn't spoiled for the unexpected incident which occurs, the fall out from which is handled beautifully in the writing.
And also big props for not making David's dead lover into some mythical perfect being. The scenes where David is "talking" to Kyle in his head were some of my favourites.
For a debut novel this really was brilliant!
The way David & Brandon meet is quite unique and unlike in so many other books, they don't jump straight into bed together.....
This was a really well written story telling and showing us that when it comes to love, age is just a number. It shows us that when you think you're too old to love again, you're not.
I loved everything about this and can't wait to read more from this talented author!
The first half is relaxed, descriptive and allows you to build clear mental images. The second half feels distracted and is driven by having too much story given not enough time.
💖🔥 Fantastic book and narration. The story had me from first page. An age gap, funny humour and great characters included in this. I didn't much like Ethan in this but he's only a minor character. The ghost of Kyle voices with David which is funny at times. Hot sexy scenes between them. There was a lot of descriptions in this being a bit much at times. The ending 70% is a doozy with lots happening and emotional.
David 48 yrs and feeling lonely and feeling the loss of Kyle from 3 yrs ago. He loved going to the gym but when he hurts his his shoulder he starts therapy.
Brandon a 26 therapist and new in the area the past year. A new client and a new attraction for him when they go for coffee.
