Quad Shot of Love

Blurb:  Sometimes you can go home again. Reece Watkins left Montana after high school. A math major, he found a fulfilling career as an accountant in Washington with Mike, the love of his life. But then Mike dies of a heart attack, leaving Reece to reevaluate his own life and realize he’s on the same track. He decides to return to Montana and a slower pace.

Former football team captain Nick Kenison never left Montana. Instead, he married his high school sweetheart, had two kids, established a contracting business, and discovered he was gay. Now out and proud, Nick drives out to Reece’s to answer a call about roof repairs.

In high school, they were opposites, but now? The attraction between them is electric. Of course, it isn’t that easy—Reece is still dealing with body issues, self-esteem issues, and grief over Mike’s loss. Nick will have to teach him it’s never too late for love.

Review:  Despite being someone that gravitates toward angst filled stories I really do love reading a light, feel good book. That is exactly what, Improves With Age, feels like. Reece and Nick are characters that knew each other growing up and are meeting again later in life. During the intervening years there have been many changes, some good, some devastating.

Reece settles back in his hometown after twenty years to move on from a loss, but the house he just bought has a hole in the roof. Luckily he has Nick recommended as a handyman. Reconnection and sex soon follow, though a little too quickly in my opinion.

When I think of this book I can almost imagine it as a romantic comedy movie. Me, cuddled on the couch on a Friday night in, watching these two guys finding love, snow on the roof and all. With just enough humor, sex, & emotional turmoil.

This isn’t a revolutionary book, but it is fun and sexy. It’s a short story so at times it felt a bit rushed. There wasn’t much conflict other than some internal uncertainty. But it was a short and sweet read, exactly what you need in a pinch, especially if you like middle aged characters.
