GRL 2018 SPOTLIGHT - CS Poe - Love Has No Expiration

In my attempt to cover some of the attending authors for this year's GRL,
I am reviewing 

Love Has No Expiration
by CS Poe!


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 midforties, 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."

My Rating - 4 Stars!

First of all, let's discuss this cover. It's absolutely beautiful and makes me so damn happy! A middle aged man falling in love? Hell yes, sign me up!

CS Poe's Love Has No Expiration is a sweet and touching novella. Daniel and Keith meet at a farmer's market and despite the age difference, they just intrigue one another. Keith is all for getting involved with the older cutie, Daniel, but Daniel is reluctant and afraid. 

What follows is a tender tale between two men who are at completely different stages in life. Daniel doesn't want to take a chance, but if he does, he will find that it's so worth it. A great lesson in the book is that if you really want something, you can make the time for it.

Love Has No Expiration just brings out all the good feels. It's one where you want to snuggle up in a blanket while reading it, to get full value from it. CS Poe has left me enchanted and charmed by this inspiring story.
