Two men with a shared history and a mutual attraction must be honest with themselves and each other so both their dreams come true.
Quiet, unassuming Tanner Sellers spends his time running a diner in Hope, Arizona. Not particularly social, twenty-two-year-old Tanner keeps to himself and enjoys his simple life, but he longs for someone to call his own. In his most secret fantasy, that someone is sexy Steve Faus. But Steve is his friend’s father and mentor’s widower and therefore off-limits.
Despite some challenges, thirty-nine-year-old Steve Faus has had a good life. He’s extremely successful at work, has a great relationship with his college-age son, and lives in a wonderful town. Eighteen months after losing his partner, the one thing Steve lacks is someone to share his life. If Steve is honest with himself, that someone is the young man he has known and cared about for years. Steve and Tanner want one another, all they need is a little push in the right direction to make both their dreams come true.
Review: What a great May/December romantic book. As always CC wrote a great story about two men searching for something and finding love. Steve lost his partner but knew that he had not lost the need to have someone love him. He's known Tanner, a young friend of his sons, for years. With the help of Steve's son and a push from his deceased partner, Tanner and Steve find what they both need. This was a sweet, romantic story that did not disappoint and proves that sometimes, wishes do come true.
