Let me just say that this anthology was a wonderful collection of stories. It was the very first one I have ever read all the way through and now I’m thinking I need to buy and read more of them 🙂
This one had many different kinds of themes but they all shared one thing in common, which was older men falling for younger men or vice versa. 15 stories about losing love, gaining love or finding love.
I’d love to be able to sit here and write what I thought about each one but I’d rather have you read it for yourself, and I won’t spend a lot of time getting into every detail of each story but I will share a few of my favorites.
“Picture This” by Dottie Stratton & Linda James:
Whit and Dan were dating during high school but when Whits dad sees him with the other boy all hell breaks loose and Whit is sent away. After many years, Whit comes home and all he wants is to see Dan again. Dan doesn’t understand what happened all those years ago, all he knows is he’s still hurting and still very much in love with the other man. When they finally come face to face and the air gets cleared they finally get there happily ever after. This was a fantastic read and my favorite of all of them. I would love to see more stories from these two authors.
“Granddad’s Cup of Tea” by Amy Rae Durreson:
Ewan lost his wife two years ago and now spends his days puttering around and helping his daughter take care of his grandkids. One afternoon while out delivering papers with his granddaughter he comes to the big house on the hill where Alex lives. Alex recently lost his partner and is still deeply grieving. The two older men strike up a friendship that in time turns into something much more.
“Hunting Season” by AC Valentine:
Carson inherits his aunt’s home after her passing and when he gets there he sees that his new home is falling down around him. What’s a man to do? Hire a contractor to get the job done of course. Travis comes to his rescue and with the help of his crew they get to work fixing up the old place. Carson and Travis spend many days together and a sweet romance blooms.
What a fun and delightful read this was. I plan to read many other anthologies, and if you’re like me and have never tried an anthology before, start with this one. I’m pretty positive you won’t be disappointed in your choice.
