As a physician and prominent citizen of Victoria, Texas, Dr. Gil Kelly took a hard fall when his vengeful wife revealed his infidelity with other men. Closing ranks around her, the town's elite ostracized him, and his relationship with his children was nearly destroyed.
After spending his life focused on living for others, he has no idea how to live for himself. He wants to find love but now settles for anonymous sex that only further clouds his world with shame and guilt. Gil believes finding true love is an unobtainable dream, what his father used to call "chasing the sun."
Then he runs into Tom Martinez, his son's childhood best friend, who returned to town a grown man and offers everything Gil needs. But Gil hesitates to fall into Tom's arms, because after his high-profile divorce, the potential scandal of loving a younger man could separate him from his children permanently.

This was somewhat better than the first story in this series. I actually liked Gil and Tom.
Gil is Zack Kelly's father (Zack's one of the main protagonists in the first story) and Tom is Zack's childhood best friend. So to say this had the potential to be really complicated is an understatement. But despite what the kind of drama that premise might present, I actually found this story to be... Very low on the drama llama factor. Oh sure there was the confrontation with the ex-wife and Zack, but it was resolved fairly quickly. I also think I would have enjoyed this better if we got flashbacks of Tom and Gil's interactions in the past, but I understand that with the big age gap and all, that might have been a tad creepy.
Anyway, this was better than the first story. As always, TJ was amazing and did an excellent job narrating the story.
If you're into May/December romances, you'll probably enjoy this. Even if you aren't, the narrator will probably make you like it anyway.
