Dalton is out from a bad divorce: his wife accused him to be gay, even if Dalton never had a gay experience in his life. It's not clear if he thought about it, maybe deep in the closet which is his conscience, some idea wandered in his mind, but he never acted on them. And then he meets by chance Sal, the sexy and gentle owner of an Italian restaurant near his office. Their noon encounters begin to be a necessity for Dalton, who lost all his friends with the divorce. But Sal wants something more from him than a good friend.
The story is really tender; it's clear to everyone that Dalton and Sal are made for each other, but Sal knows that he needs to be careful with Dalton, he is like a newborn baby and has to learn everything again, and above all he needs to trust again. The scene in which Dalton calls on the phone a friend only to be rebutted is so sad but also so right to create the right background for the character.
5.0 out of 5 starsAn amazing tale of falling in love, a bit of heartache, then a HEA.

This is very short, but it's sweet, sexy and heartwarming.
It's the tale of a divorced guy, whose wife's pretty much taken him for everything, as well as ruining his self-esteem, with both her cheating and her accusations that he is gay. Though he has no intention of exploring whether he is or not, one day he meets an openly gay bartender/restaurant owner and starts to realise that there is a side to him that he'd never realised.
This was incredibly well-written, and realistic too, as it wasn't a case of Dalton suddenly realising he was gay, or just going with a 'oh, what the H?' experience - he shied away, he explored what it would mean to be in a relationship with a man, and there were consequences both personally and professionally. Throughout, Sal was a tender, romantic tower of strength, reminding me a tiny bit of an Italian Mamma, and in the end, when he got his guy, I was rooting for both of them.
This book i unfortunately read in under 2 hours but primarily because it is so darn cute and sexy! Sal is swoooon-worthy in a sweet and caring and oh so loving way. Being Italian, he does not have a problem to express his emotions and shows (and gets) what he wants! Dalton is a very lucky guy to have such a supportive lover in Sal...
