I received this book as an ARC though NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I really enjoyed this book. I loved the romantic, almost soft mood to the story. I found James to be a relatable character, and I liked that, while he was still mourning his loss, that he was taking steps to move beyond his grief. I can't imagine losing someone like that, and I respected that James was working on not drowning in his heartbreak. I really liked David as well. He is a good man, and I loved seeing them grow closer. I didn't even realize that the age gap was significant as it is because David has such maturity, and presence, and James never once treated him with anything but respect. I loved that David was so self possessed, and he fully understands his own preferences. It made me fully buy into their love story. The ending was nicely sexy, and it wrapped up the story nicely. I loved watching these two fall for each other. A great short story.
