Blurb: When is it the wrong time to find Mr. Right? For David, that time is now. He’s caring for his homophobic father, who has Alzheimer’s, and his personal life is the last thing he has time to focus on. But when his father wanders off, David is forced to reach out to the police, in the person of Detective Travis Hart. Travis is gay, tired of the club life and twinks he can’t keep up with, and longs for a real relationship with a man who wants the same—maybe someone remarkable like David. In fact, David is exactly who he has been looking for, but Travis isn’t sure he can be the man David needs during this difficult time.
Because as David’s father sinks deeper into the disease that’s robbing him of his memories, David really needs a friend, not a lover. Though Travis is determined to support David in whatever way he can, David’s decision could lead both men into a situation with no possibility of a happy resolution.

Review: I have had the pleasure of reading many stories by this author and new that I was going to get an amazing story to read. In fact it was one of the reasons I picked this story, then I saw the cover and just about fainted. Two sexy men and one of them is a sexy cop, well let’s just say wow.
David’s dad is a homophobic old man raised in a time when men did not sleep with other men. Some days he is sweet and then there are days where David feels he is walking on egg shells around him. Especially now that his father has Alzheimer’s. He doesn’t want to put him in a care facility but just doesn’t know what to do. Especially when he comes home to find him missing.
David goes to the police for help but had not expected the sexy cop who was set out to help him. Travis is bound and determined to help him, but he wants him for himself also. Just too bad it might be the wrong time to do so. Especially when David’s father gets more out of control.
Now I do have to admit that there was something missing in the story but it didn’t really take away from it at all. I am not even sure what it is or why I felt that way. Alzheimer’s is a very hard disease on not only the patient but the family members and I felt that this author took it all in. It was very believable and felt like I was there watching it go down. The ending wasn’t really surprise and neither was the outcome though.
It was a very enjoyable read that I enjoyed quite a bit. Sexy men, frustrating times, sexual heat, crazy old man and dangerous situations are just some of what you get in this book. Truly loved reading it and would definitely recommend it.
