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.
My View – Story:
I liked this story. It is connected to the first in that Gil is Zack’s father and Tom is Zack’s childhood BFF. However, the writing style was more down to earth than the previous book with fewer over the top moments. This is probably because it was not set in Provincetown itself.
Chasing the Sun deals with age gaps and societal impressions. It was a cute story of learning to accept oneself and of forgiveness. The was some angst and family issues, but it was resolved in the end and the HEA was very satisfying. Tom and Gil are good together and I am looking forward to the third installment of this series.
My View – Narration:
This is the same narrator as the first book in this series. I feel that this time he was much more in control that the previous recording. His voice was smoother and his volume control was great. He did a good job with the varying voices even if a few of them were very similar. Overall, I felt he did a good job and would listen to him again in the future.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
