David James is smart, successful, handsome… and alone. After the death of his lover, Kyle, from cancer, he buried himself in his law practice and the gym. At forty-eight, he is haunted by his memories and walled off from the world. When David injures himself working out, he’s assigned to Brandon Smith for physical therapy. The vibrant young therapist is attracted to David and realizes he needs a hand to get back into dating. What begins as a practice coffee date escalates to friendship, passion, and maybe something more, as they navigate a new relationship in Washington, DC, and the gay mecca of Provincetown.

But David remains trapped behind the barrier of fear and guilt. Will he remain loyal to Kyle’s memory if he moves on? Can he and Brandon manage a twenty-two-year age gap? Brandon thinks he understands David’s concerns, and for him, the answer to those questions is yes. He wants to be with David, and he believes he can overcome David’s barriers. But Brandon fails to account for the world’s reaction to a handsome young man attached to an older, wealthy lover. David’s memories, Brandon’s pride, and an unexpected tragedy might cost them something very special.


Pride and Joy series starts out with September by Robert Winter. Very bitter sweet love story. I liked this one a lot. Both characters have to learn and grow in order to find a love of a life time.
This book change POVs from Brandon to David. If you can get used to that you will love this one. I am not a huge fan of that style but it works in this book.
David keeps dreaming of his lost partner. Kyle is dead there is not bringing him back. But in his dreams they are together. David keeps busy with work and the gym. Over doing it at the gym leads him to Brandon.
Brandon is a psychical therapist. He is 26 and wants a steady boyfriend. David is gorgeous and looks like he could use a friend. Brandon wants to be that friend.
David does not want to let go of his lost love but Brandon is the man he cannot get out of his head.
I like the flow of this book really good. The story keeps flowing nicely. It losing some momentum in the middle but gains back the connection by the time the ending comes. I found this one to be an nice and easy read with lots of love inside.
