Derrick and Trevor used to have an incredibly passionate relationship, full of spontaneity and sizzle. Now that their son is off to college, they want to put their days of routine, vanilla sex behind them and bring back some of that spark.
Realizing that they're emptynesters, Trevor begins to notice their age difference. He suddenly feels old and unsure of himself, and isn't confident Derrick still desires him. When Trevor decides to keep his health issues and gray hairs down there to himself, Derrick is hurt by his partner's secretive behavior and thinks Trevor must be having an affair. Nothing could be further from the truth, but Trevor doesn't know how to communicate his fears to his partner. He desperately wants to reconnect with Derrick and rev up their sex life, but will it be enough to reclaim their marital bliss?

This is a great little short story about the fears and insecurity of an established couple when they become "empty nesters." It is really sweet and I enjoyed listening to it. The narrator did a excellent job, but Charlie Belmont always does; he is one of my favorites. I wouldn't use a credit for it, but if it is on sale, worth it.
Go out and read something!
I LOOOOOOVED this book. Truly. I did. Enter Trevor and Derrick. They've been married for several years and Trevor is hitting the big 4-0 and he suddenly starts to feel old. Derrick is 6 years younger and completely unaware of Trevor's fears. So, the story goes back and forth with Derrick and Trevor giving their perspective of different issues, fears, wants, desires. I cannot say enough about this wonderfully written story. I was entranced. K.C. Burn enveloped me into this world where I felt like I was experiencing EVERYTHING with both of them. The love and intense feeling that each had for each other was so beautiful. It made me love how people who've been married for a while could still feel that intense love for one another. And isn't it important to retain the passion and lust in a relationship when you've been together for a few years?
I do have to say that the video scene. *sigh* had me perspiring, but also feeling a bit sheepish. Perhaps I'm just not ready for sex tapes. LOL But, the sentiment was appreciated. HA.
I laughed whole heartily at so many scenes and as I was listening to it on audio, I know people couldn't help looking at me as I laughed out loud like a crazy person. OH WELL. They didn't know what they were missing!!! Charlie Belmont is a fantastic reader!!! He can come whisper in my ear anytime!
I for one will be reading more from K. C. Burn.
Wonderful. Invigorating read.
It had a lot of heart and the voice actor was good.
There's really nothing to compare it to.
I liked Derrik.
I can't believe anyone gave this a 1 star. That's insane. This story was SOO SOO SOO sweet. I was very apprehensive about the whole 'aging' thing, and age difference. And don't get me wrong, some thoughts were brought up one time too many here or there but it was a cute story. It had me saying 'aww' very often throughout the book. The sex was interesting but I swear, if this book had no sex, I'd still have enjoyed it. Very enjoyable. Good pace. Well done. I look forward to more from this author. Also, the voice actor was surprisingly good.
