There’s more to life than work, and love has no expiration, even for those approaching their forty-fifth birthday.
Daniel Richards is a private chef in New York City who has committed over a decade to his skills and passion. He has carved out a name for himself in the industry and has bookings for parties and dinners months in advance. Now that he’s in his mid-forties, however, he’s come to the realization that he’s lonely and desperate for companionship.
Two days before Valentine’s Day, he meets Keith Maxwell at a farmer’s market and can’t keep the much younger man out of his thoughts. Keith is eager and willing to take a chance with someone older, but Daniel’s reluctance stops Keith’s every attempt. Worried his career will suffer if he dedicates time to a serious romance, or that Keith won’t be satisfied with someone so much older, Daniel nearly thwarts his own attempts at finding happiness.
A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2015 Daily Dose package “Never Too Late.”
5 “Quick Fix” Stars!
Sometimes you want something short and sweet, and this quick jaunt with Daniel and Keith satisfies that craving! The author has a writing style that conveys heart-felt emotions and vulnerability, in a short span of pages, and you feel invested in the characters.
I would read more by this author.
This is a cute and quick read. I love May/December romances, and this is definitely one of them. The title pretty much says it all; there’s always the opportunity for love out there, and Daniel is about to discover that whether he wants to or not.
I found the beginning of this piece slow, a lot of telling rather than showing for the introduction, but then it turned into a great commentary going through Daniel’s head. This is all from his point of view, so you really get to know him as a character. And Keith is pretty darn cute too.
Great quick read for after work!
