Chef Dylan Trevino screwed up bad, and he knows it. When he left Texas, his job, and his boyfriend behind, Dylan was confident Aston would follow him to New York. Now he’s back home and working for the worst caterer in Austin just to pay the rent. Being head chef at a party thrown by a famous rocker doesn’t make up for serving bland tacos while dressed like a dime-store cowboy. Thank god his ex can’t see him now.

Aston Winkler’s steampunk guitar mods are all the rage with musicians and he’s got invites to every hot party in town. Too bad he’d rather be listening to garage bands than networking in a penthouse. From his 6’7” vantage point, Aston has no problem spotting Dylan at the crowded SXSW party. Getting his boyfriend back? That’s a tall order.

**This story was originally published in the Romancing Austin anthology and is now available as a standalone read.***


Tall Order by author Irene Preston is a fast paced book with a lot of angst inside. Dylan is coming home after epically failing to be a chef in New York City. He used to be a big shot now he was barely making it at the local greasy spoon. Aston his ex boyfriend who did not want to go to New York with him, he is now successful as an artist. Dylan used to take care of Aston, to help him with his art. Now Aston doesn't need the help Dylan does. But Dylan is a very proud man he doesn't want to have hand outs. Lucky for him Aston will not take no for an answer.
Most of this book is really Dylan coming to terms with what he did, and the fall out he left behind. I did feel like this was a middle book of a series. I felt like there was tons I missed out on, and more yet to come in a next book. But as for the love story itself it is very well done. I loved watching these two find a stronger love than they had before.
When you want a romance with heart and soul this is the one to pick up.
