When plumber and builder Jordan Novotny goes to take a look at the home of the town’s openly gay, recently dumped librarian, he doesn’t expect to find anything other than a falling-apart old house and a water heater in need of repair. Instead, he finds an older man in need of some TLC and a new circle of friends after his ex tossed him aside for a newer model. Stephen might be attracted to Jordan, but he thinks the young man is exactly that—too young. It takes Jordan’s family interfering and a bit of a mishap to make them see that it’s never too late to find a new love, and that age is just a number. All that matters is compatibility and the courage to take a chance.



Oh this was just too short! (insert more whining here) I really, really loved both MCs. Stephen is a broken-hearted librarian whose lover has left him with an old house in need of repairs. Jordan is a plumber/fix-it guy and is called in to help with the water heater.
Though the age gap is nearly 30 years, both men find in the other just what they’re looking for.
This is a very sweet, no-steam, short, short story that just tantalizes the taste-buds.
(Maybe the author will see fit to expand this into a full novel one day. Please! )
