Second Chance at Love
Blurb: The hole in Tony Teagan’s heart is slowly shrinking. Since losing the love of his life, he’s buried himself in running West TonDe Press, but now he can remember the good times. Still, that doesn’t mean he’s ready for a new man in his life. Then he meets nighttime delivery guy Brandon, who appears on his doorstep with Thai food. Tony’s interest is piqued despite their ten-year age difference, and Brandon is all for a new relationship. Relinquishing his hold on his deceased lover is the hardest challenge Tony will face, but if his future is combined with Brandon’s, he may have a second chance at love after all.
Review: This was a sweet novella. These guys are adorable together and while there is some misunderstandings and miscommunication, Tony is too mature and secure to allow it to continue. I loved that, all too often we have angst for angst sake and it can drag a story into stupid.
While Tony is still processing his grief, I felt that he was at the stage where he’d dealt with most of the deep sadness, and was ready to make a new life for himself. He finds a good partner in Brandon who has had to grow up fast since he came out and found himself footing the full bill for his education.
While the guys have dealt with some serious issues. I felt that the author managed to treat their pain with respect and still make this a fun story. That takes some strong writing skills.
These guys are so hot! They can’t seem to get enough of each other and while the sex is smoking the relationship they develop is sweet and full of potential.
I enjoyed this novella. It was well written, and while it was a short read, I felt that these guys had their story told and I got to know a really nice couple. A great read for when you’re looking for something light and easy to while away an hour with some hot sex and sweet love.
