2nd Edition

When is it the wrong time to find Mr. Right? For David, that time is now. He’s caring for his homophobic father, who has Alzheimer’s, and his personal life is the last thing he has time to focus on. But when his father wanders off, David is forced to reach out to the police, in the person of Detective Travis Hart. Travis is gay, tired of the club life and twinks he can’t keep up with, and longs for a real relationship with a man who wants the same—maybe someone remarkable like David. In fact, David is exactly who he has been looking for, but Travis isn’t sure he can be the man David needs during this difficult time.

Because as David’s father sinks deeper into the disease that’s robbing him of his memories, David really needs a friend, not a lover. Though Travis is determined to support David in whatever way he can, David’s decision could lead both men into a situation with no possibility of a happy resolution.

First Edition published by Amber Quill Press, 2009.

David's Dilemma by Lynn Lorenz, this is the second edition of this book. It really mostly follows the first story, only there are two more scenes in this one, and some parts are smoothed over more. I originally bought this book in print from the previous publisher. Reading this newer version made me love it more. There are parts that were choppy before that are smoothed out. I also felt the author slowed things down and gave us more romance in this version. I loved the first version of this book and super love this version. It is a must read if you are a true romantic like myself.
David, he is trying to take care of his father. His dad has Alzheimer’s. I feel for David in this story. Nothing is worse than watching your parent deteriorate and there is nothing you can do to stop it. David is a good person. He has a huge heart. He is also very over whelmed with everything going on in his life.
Travis meets David when the police are called to his house. Travis Heart is a detective. He is looking for love in all the wrong places. What he really wants is someone he can share all parts of his life with. Someone he can grow old with. Someone like David. David is not really in a place to commit to anyone right now. So they start slow as friends.
I loved watching these two go from friends to lovers. The progression felt very on point. I liked the flow of this story. I could feel the friendship and romance right along with the characters. This story is one for the keeper shelves. I will have to get this one in print too. Really is worth reading over and over again.
