  • 4.5Auspicious DebutIt took me a long time to understand the title of Jane Austen s classic Pride and Prejudice because I thought both Darcy and Elizabeth were prideful It wasn t until later that I understood the prejudices are societal I m not sure if the author intended September as a modern day reimagining of that classic but I couldn t help noticing the similarities.David and Brandon each struggle with their pride when faced with those same societal prejudices Austen used David is significant [...]

  • 3.5stars This was a very interesting debut novel Some parts I enjoyed, some others bothered me a little, and there were scenes that I absolutely adored See why I m finding it hard to write a review In any case, I expect to see from this author, and I m looking forward to the next book in the series I m settling with 3.5 stars for the overall experience.What I liked The slow burn There s a lot of it and I loved the dates, the banter, and the building tension Kyle The dead partner was a big part [...]

  • 4 starsWow, what a ride If you enjoy the emotional writing of Jay Bell or Suki Fleet you ll likely love this book The first few chapters made this one hard for me to get into Once David Brandon had their first date though, I was hooked and didn t want to put the story down This had a few of my pet peeves in it, mainly view spoiler hospital make ups hospital professions of love and miscommunication non communication that leads to long seperations hide spoiler but they were handled well and didn t [...]

  • What a lovely debut novel by Robert Winters I m always partial to the age gap trope, and 22 years are certainly a huge gap between the two MCs, David and Brandon I loved all the problems this alone caused, particularly for David I have to say I really really get where he is coming from At 48 he knows the future might not be all rosy and healthy, even if he keeps his body in supreme condition at the moment He knows that ten or twenty years down the line, things could change and effect their relat [...]

  • I liked it a lot with a few reservations I need to put some thought into my review It s very hard to review without spoilers I did like this, in parts one and two than the rest It was absolutely an impressive debut I guess I consider it somewhat slow paced in parts but I liked getting to know the characters so well The chronicle of the time they spent together really got me invested in what would happen between David and Brandon I enjoy the older younger man trope, as well as someone trying to [...]

  • Me ha gustado, entretenido y con personajes que es f cil querer y con los que tambi n es f cil empatizar.Sin embargo, creo que necesita un mejor editado, sobran palabras que le quitan ritmo Adem s todo es demasiado perfecto, las situaciones son dif ciles pero los personajes siempre saben lo que tienen que decir, el discurso es siempre el adecuado Las conversaciones en ocasiones no son naturales, todo parece muy preparado y eso le quita mucha fuerza y emotividad al discurso Por otro lado, los per [...]

  • I cried Multiple times I may even have gasped out loud theatrically while sitting and reading entirely alone.This is very much a romance, but it does come with some weighty subject matter, so be in the mood for that kind of read when you pick it up And don t read it around other people if you are at all prone to tearing up over fiction.I don t recall much that I d really feel necessary to call out for critique nothing rubbed me wrong, here.Keeping this review simple because I m honestly too tire [...]

  • Awesome What a wonderful story, from first to last page Well rounded and totally captivating, it left me speechless only this now I m already waiting for the next book in this series.

  • A copy of this book was kindly provided to me by the author publisher via IndiGo Marketing Design in exchange for an honest review I finished this yesterday but I didn t have the time to review until now, so here it goes.The characters and the story were very good and I enjoyed getting to know David and Brandon Before I started reading this I thought I was looking at a very angsty read, what with David being a widower and still trying to start living again, but it turned out to be a pretty low a [...]

  • I would consider this a strong start for an author s debut In this setup, David is in his late 40s, and is still mourning the loss of his partner from a few years back Brandon is a twenty something physical therapist who s relocated from Texas to get away from the homophobia.These two meet when David tears his rotator cuff and needs PT The attraction is instant, the flirting starts, and the men began to date on another.I will say that the smexy times in this book is en fuego It was hot from the [...]

  • WOW You rarely get to see a debut book pack a punch like this one does It has so many elements I love age gap, hurt and comfort, stubborn MC s who aren t willing to let go of pride and barriers to get to the HEA It s just beautiful really strong writing that evokes in you, the reader, an amazing sense of place and person It might help that I live in DC too so I know most of the geography and general locations being discussed I cried several times like real big tears I don t cry much and my heart [...]

  • I finished this a few days ago but, oh man, you have no idea how difficult has been to decide what kind of rating I ll give it to this book so I ve been avoiding this moment I can t keep hiding though, so I ll try to be objective in here, but let s face it There is nothing objective about reading and reviewing a book, is there The blurb tells you almost everything that you need to know there s an age gap of 22 years that you know I m a sucker for , there s loss, grieving, love, and angst.The sto [...]

  • 3,3 Even thought this is a book that, at first glance for the record during the first 65% , might not seem to be all that it becomes, overall there s just not enough going on here to really make this story rise above the rest of the myriad of other average MM stories Well, there was a little story going on during these 65%, but it got lost Lost in an overwhelming amount of graphically described sex scenes 3 4 in a row that actually was handled well I m not going to do an overview of the plot lin [...]

  • Full reviewage on Prism Book Alliance We get both Brandon and David s points of view in this story and the tone of the storytelling subtly and beautifully changes with each They and the supporting characters were winning me over early on in this read, and that carried on all the way through.Winter s writing is engaging, smooth, and realistic, and all are qualities that also maintain throughout The style of language used by the characters is modern but relaxed, making the conversations feel natur [...]

  • A well written May to December, and I suppose second chances read Yes, there was a bucketful of sex which got a little tiresome after a while, and lead to me skipping a few pages actually took a little of the shine off the rest of the story for me the story was good enough, it didn t need all the sexual shenanigans , yes there were some really bitchy old queens who were just a teeny, tiny bit jealous of David and Brandon and showed their displeasure by spewing poison and playing on both David an [...]

  • Loved it The characters are loveable and developed The writing is very good and i love it that the author took the time enough pages to write their story and journey, and what a journey it is It is a bit angsty but i feel this is not to much, and it is very appropriate for this story The first part of the book is really the guys getting to know each other then in the middle somethings happen no spoilers from me and the end has them working through that There is the age gap that is a problem for [...]

  • Because love is never easy.It needs loads of tissue And one was something I need to digest slowly, because losing someone at David s age, was never easy Been there before, and I m glad David found Brandon and moved on slowly.This is not an easy read, no fun and rainbow, but the ending was worth waiting for I can t blame David for his doubt and guilty feeling to his late lover, it was definitely understandable.I m glad Brandon can put up with it and he deserved all the happiness in his life Kind [...]

  • This was easily one of the best books I have read in a long time and one of my favorite stories 2017 David is an attorney and he meets Brandon who works as a physical therapist when he hurts his shoulder during a gym class Although Brandon is much younger they are immediately drawn to each other But David is a widower, who lost his husband to cancer 2 years ago, and is not easy to fall in love again and open up to someone else.This story starts really slow and I loved the way how everything deve [...]

  • This debut novel took my breath away The tail end of my T shirt was repeatedly abused because I couldn t hold back the tears while I read and the box of tissue was too far away for me to grab There was absolutely no way in hell I was going to put the book down and grab it either, so shirt tails and sleeves were abused Don t judge me The first thing that sucked me in was the plot Here we have David, an older man who was in a loving relationship for almost 20 years until Kyle died leaving David al [...]
