Robert McKinnon, a Scottish expatriate, teaches literature at a local university in Boston. When he meets the enigmatic, passionate and youthful Chris Ford at a bar, his life is forever changed for the better. Even though there are nine years separating them, Robert cannot resist Chris' zest for life. This is a sweet, uncomplicated story that shows the slow progression of new love. Both characters are likable men with their own quirks, strengths and flaws. It was hard to put this book down because I immediately became invested in the MCs lives. At times I wondered if Robert was 72, rather than his actual 32 years of age. He acted so unbelievably old for someone who was still quite young. It was sad to see how little he thought of himself, but with Chris' help, he started to see himself a little clearer. If you're looking for a nice, virtually angst-free love story, this is the one for you! Definitely recommended.
