Since the death of his partner a year ago, sci-fi writer James Murphy has lived a quiet, secluded life. But at the urging of his agent, he finally makes an effort to rejoin society. His first step is volunteering for a weekly storytime at the local library. The decision seems like a good one when he meets the children’s librarian, David.
Bright and engaging, David somehow manages to make James feel like everything will be okay. But when mutual friendship leads to a budding romance, the move forward could be too much for James. Leaving his past love behind once and for all might be a step he’ll never be ready to take.
Storytime is a short, sweet story by K. Lynn. Middle-aged James Murphy is mourning his partner. He decides to get involved in the children’s program at the local library, just to get out of the house. There he meets David, the children’s librarian. The story’s setting is realistic as a library, which is refreshing. You wouldn’t think it would matter, but there’s some weird stuff out there. James and David are both enjoyable people. This is a May-December Romance that comes across as sweet and fun. I had to knock off some points for the brevity of the sex scene. But not too many, because what’s there is hot. I had a good time reading Storytime. I can only imagine K. Lynn’s fans will too.
