Neither James nor Gabe has ever had a real relationship. They might make a connection if they can get past their differences—and their fears.
At age fourteen, James Maron decided to prove he wasn’t gay despite vast evidence to the contrary. Now at thirty-two, he’s getting ready to send his son to college and wondering what he’s supposed to do next. Outside his son, his life consists of an IT job he hates and watching telenovelas with the women in his apartment building.
Gabriel Juarez is the CFO of a technology giant. He has looks, charm, fantastic wealth, a workaholic personality, and a string of boyfriends who only stick around because he’s too busy to tell them to leave.
A bad laptop/projector interface causes James and Gabe’s paths to cross. Friends, family, and coworkers jump to match Gabe with a nice guy, and James with anyone. But are they too different? Everyone will have to tread very carefully to keep things from ending before they start.
Empty Nests, by Ada Maria Soto is a great, fun romance.
Gabe's a successful businessman who works too much and hasn't left himself any time for dating. James hasn't been able to date, as he's been busy raising his son solo since he was 15.
James is one of my favorite characters ever. His love for his son is beyond words. His attitude towards having a child is not only impressive but also phenomenal.
As James' son is getting ready to leave for college, he's afraid his dad will be alone. Lucky for him, he meets the rich and powerful Gabe. Their story is full of heart and emotion. It also has some fantastic humor and embarrassing moments.
If you enjoy romances between middle aged men, don't miss Empty Nests. The men are wonderfully developed, and their slow burn relationship is exquisite.
