Core Training by Andrew Grey

Very sweet and romantic novella that makes me regrets to not have starting reading this series sooner. Hugh is 44 years old and starting to realize he is heading towards a lonely old age since he has never once tried his hand to a relationship, and he thinks he is too old to start now. Max is 26 years old and with a penchant for silver foxes; he probably doesn’t realize it but he lacked a fatherly figure in his life and since he likes to be cuddled and cherished, he tends to prefer older men since they are more attentive.

First of all what I like is that, yes, Hugh thinks to be too old for Max, but it’s not that he doesn’t know he is still an attractive man; Hugh has no problem to date, it’s only that he would like to move to a more serious dating and possible with an exclusive relationship. Max on the other hand has plenty of opportunity to casual date, he is young and pretty, and he likes sex, but he is lacking stability, and for that reason he is attracted by Hugh. Sure the sex is good, even fantastic, but what cements their budding relationship is the kindness Hugh displays with Max.

Both Hugh than Max are very interesting characters, both have they flaws, but the goods are more and they click together in the right way: the fears of one are the point of strength of the other, and I foresee for them an happily and lasting ever after.
