There’s more to life than work, and love has no expiration, even for those approaching their forty-fifth birthday.
Daniel Richards is a private chef in New York City who has committed over a decade to his skills and passion. He has carved out a name for himself in the industry and has bookings for parties and dinners months in advance. Now that he’s in his mid-forties, however, he’s come to the realization that he’s lonely and desperate for companionship.
Two days before Valentine’s Day, he meets Keith Maxwell at a farmer’s market and can’t keep the much younger man out of his thoughts. Keith is eager and willing to take a chance with someone older, but Daniel’s reluctance stops Keith’s every attempt. Worried his career will suffer if he dedicates time to a serious romance, or that Keith won’t be satisfied with someone so much older, Daniel nearly thwarts his own attempts at finding happiness.
A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2015 Daily Dose package “Never Too Late.”
This one is sweet and short and left me with a smile on my face.
Daniel Richards is forty five and has made a huge success of his career as a private chef, even if he did it at the expense of everything else in his life. Every now and then he wonders what it would be like to have that special man in his life, but then he remembers his clients and how busy he is and carries on as before.
He meets Keith Maxwell at a market and is immediately amused at the younger man’s vegetable puns – when was the last time anyone made him smile like that? He is surprised and then a little panicked to find himself flirting and quickly makes a run for it.
Thoughts of having that someone have been opened up again but Daniel has every excuse in the book ready as to why he should not pursue something with Keith. One night together doesn’t change his mind but the morning after leaves him miserable. Daniel is going to have to open himself up and take a chance if he is ever going to get what he so badly craves.
