Give and Take
By Anne Brooke
This was a poignant story about an older man who has lost his lover of 20 years to cancer three years ago. It is the night before his 45 th birthday and he is doing the club scene, looking to get laid before his birthday. Once he sees all he young men filling the club, he is not sure about all this, until he talks to the bartender the first time.
Dave is missing Patrick desperately, but Jeff the hot young bartender has caught his eye and agreed to a night with him. What happens is something so unexpected and cleansing; will Dave be able to let Jeff go in the morning? Or will he find just the right note and words to let Jeff keep him? At least on and off?
This is a wonderful little story about moving on after a lost love and all the possibilities of finding something and someone new. Great story, 5 star rating without a doubt.
