has lost everything that defined him: his construction business, his husband, his home, and his fortune. He went from one of the first gay men to marry in Colorado, to the first to be divorced. Crushed and alone, his only recourse is to move into a hurricane-damaged cottage in Key West, but his troubles seem to follow him to the beach paradise.Dusk “Doctor Dusky” Keller
has never allowed himself to be defined by anyone or anything. Growing up in the Keys with his hippie parents, he ran an animal hospital until a hurricane destroyed it. He never expects to fall straight into lust with an uptight stranger who he sees on his daily beach walks.

‘You’re grumpy,like an old rooster who can’t crow anymore,You work too hard and think too much. You’ve been here how long,but never once actually enjoyed the beach.‘ (Dusk)
The ‘Book Blurb’ gives enough away so I don’t feel the need to go into great detail as regards the story itself,but what I will say is I enjoyed this-the M/M Genre is one of my favorite’s to read,and this flowed well with Dual POV’s,there was some funny parts(mostly the dialogue from Dusk-his easy-going attitude and nature had me laughing out loud),the sex scenes were H.O.T. and well written.The character’s were engaging,with their differences in not only age(Kent’s in his 40’s,Dusk nearing his 30’s) but their attitudes to life.The story takes place over a period of about five months,and in that time both leads find something neither were looking for,there is some added drama-Kent’s ex-husband’s appearance,and the revelation of Kent’s real Father turning up and connecting with his son,but all looks like a HEA for both Dusk and Kent,I would have liked it to be a bit longer/or an Epilogue but that is just a personal thing-as I said I did enjoy this story,and it is the first I’ve read by this Author.
