Dreams can come true, even when all hope for happiness has vanished. Fernando and Brig faced harsh realities as they grew into men. One was a street thug, sent into exile by his mother, while the other was disowned for daring to be honest. Many would falter under these circumstances, but they chose to thrive.
Fernando- This handsome, older businessman grew up on the wrong side of the tracks, but through an iron will and determination to succeed, his chain of restaurants become the envy of his peers. When agonizing loneliness and tragedy strike, he’s forced to decide between following the same isolated path, or taking a chance on love.
Brig- An insecure loner tossed out by his conservative, religious family for his sexuality. Introspective, unable to see what he has to offer another man, his love of books almost fills the void in his heart. Content to live alone, afraid of opening himself up to be hurt, his attraction for his older boss becomes unbearable. Forced to make a decision about his future, will he make the right choice and find the happiness his heart desires?
Making hard choices is second nature to these survivors, but now they must make the hardest choice of all- to overcome their fears, and open their hearts to one another.
This is a stand alone May/December romance with a HEA, no cliffhangers, and lots of feels.
I love Brig and Fernando. Their story was both heart breaking and beautiful. I can't think of two other people who needed each other more. Though the story was solid as it was, having both of their back stories separately at the end really made an impact. And you have to love Ashlee. She was such a vibrant character and a great friend for Brig. Just like them, I would of cried having to leave such a dream job. What a powerful read.
