A WISE HEART
“An emotionally complicated story.“True-Loveislovereview
A wise man once said a person was only as old as they felt. Sadly, most days, I felt ancient. I also felt lonely, especially after my mother dropped an atom bomb on me, so on the eve of my thirty-ninth birthday, I determined it was my right to celebrate any way I chose.
Fate was definitely a cruel mistress when she brought a gorgeous, YOUNG, redheaded grad student wearing sexy leather pants into my life that night, and now, I couldn’t get him out of my head. I was supposed to be the mature adult who knew when to walk away from a precarious situation. How could his shining, hazel eyes with flecks of gold make it so hard for me to see the line I shouldn’t cross?
A wise man once screamed, “Get your act together, Monroe, and grow the f*@k up.” Sadly, I stopped listening to that wise man… and any others in my life… a long time ago. I was a spoiled, little rich boy, and I liked to have my fun. A possession arrest didn’t seem like too big a deal until I was informed by my uncle how much it could impact my future. When I arrived in Washington, DC, to confess my sins to my father, I decided one last night of fun was in order because I would be going on lockdown for a long time. The man I met that night? Oh, Daddy!
Neither of us had any idea what the cosmos had in store. God knew, if I had my way, I would make sure the man never left me behind. Of course, I was immature enough to think every love story had a happy ending. Could I stick a pin in my overinflated ego and learn to be the man he deserved?
HEART OF STONE
“With wet eyes, I can exhaustingly say I really, really liked it.“A Book Lover’s Dream Book
“Hi! I’m Dr. Dream, and I’m probably the hottest guy you’ll ever meet. I have silver hair, but I’m young at heart. I have lots of fans, but I’m looking for my Number One. Is it you, younger guy? Hit me up!”
ER Deputy Chief Stone Dooley got the surprise of his life when he learned his twin daughters had signed him up for a gay dating site, without his knowledge, three years after he became a widower.
What was supposed to be a quick drink and an apology for his daughters’ prank, turned into tentative friendship and an agreement to swap services—Stone would take care of the younger man’s ailing grandfather, if the young guy would help out with childcare for his daughters over the summer.
Twists and turns test their blossoming friendship. Grief, loss, secrets, and a threat to tear his family apart all test Stone’s limits to his breaking point.
What is the key to weathering the storms heading in Stone’s direction? Maybe a blond-haired young man with jade green eyes could crack the Heart of Stone?
