Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from RBTL World of Books Blog Tours and the author.  I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255:  "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising".


Malcolm Webber is still grieving the loss of his partner of
twenty years to cancer. He’s buried his mind and feelings in his legal work and isn’t looking for another relationship. He isn’t expecting to feel such a strong attraction when he meets Hans Erickson—especially since the man is quite a bit younger than him.
Hans is an adventure writer with an exciting lifestyle to
match. When he needs a tax attorney to straighten out an error with the IRS, he ends up on the other side of the handsome Malcolm’s desk. The heat between them is undeniable, but business has to come first. When it’s concluded, Hans leaps on the chance to make his move.

Malcolm isn’t sure he’s ready for the next chapter in his
life. Hans is so young and active that Malcolm worries he won’t be able to hold his interest for long. Just when he’s convinced himself to take the risk and turn the page, problems at the law office threaten to end their love story
before it can really begin.

My Thoughts:

Malcolm Webber gets a surprise when he meets a new client.  He’s having a hard time getting over a personal tragedy.  Hans Erickson needs some of Malcolm’s expertise.  He may be just what is needed to get Malcolm out of his funk.

Our author reminds his readers that even if you lose a loved one that life must go on.  It may be tough in the beginning but family and friends may help fill the void for a little while until you’re ready for a new relationship.  One thing that impressed me was how realistic Malcolm’s life appears.  You can almost feel and understand everything that he’s going through.  And you can see how hard it is for him to start all over again.

Even though there’s a lot of sadness in this story, this was my most favorite out of all the books that I’ve read of Mr. Grey’s so far.  You can’t help but get your emotions involved as you learn more about Malcolm.  Hans also has a personal tragedy that he’s dealing with so these two men have something in common and can use that to heal each other.  There are things that Malcolm does to Hans that are not very nice but that just shows more of Malcolm’s personality and how much losing a partner has affected him.

Another thing that impressed me was that our author has created a character that is past a certain age.  I think as our society evolves, we don’t think that someone is over the hill – people can find love, and yes even more than once, at any age.  My only issue was that Hans was a little too patient and maybe needed to poke Malcolm a little or make him realize certain things.  There were things that Malcolm would do that would indicate he still had some insecurities that he needed to deal with.  All of this showing how realistic this budding relationship was.  And the ending shows how ready he is to commit to that relationship.
