Daddio by Mickie J. Ashling
Sequel to Taste
Horizons Series: Book Three
Six months after meeting at the Taste of Chicago, Lil Lampert and Grier Dilorio are living together. Their physical bond glows brighter than ever, but the couple soon realizes that it takes more than three magic words and outstanding sex to make a partnership work.
Like any fledgling, Grier is learning how to navigate his new life. His problems should have ended when Jillian signed the papers acknowledging him as Luca’s biological father and he got the opportunity to pursue a career in interior design. Instead, he’s hampered by old fears and bad habits that are hard to let go.
Adjusting to a small apartment in a four-season state—with a much younger man sporting a stubborn streak—is a challenge for Lil. His position as Luca’s “Daddio” is a delicate balancing act between doing what he thinks is right and deferring to Grier’s eight years of experience.
Life is stressed enough, but now Lil and Grier also face an unexpected complication from a powerful, far-reaching ruling body. Suddenly Luca’s safety—and their happiness as an emerging family—depends on Lil's keen understanding of human nature and Grier's willingness to learn.
Bus Stop by Anne Dudley
When Benny and Stuart first meet on the bus, it seems like they have nothing in common. Stuart is an up-and-coming ad agency rep. Benny drives a bus Stuart takes when he's too drunk to get behind the wheel. Benny’s a doting father to a little girl who’s his whole world. Stuart’s not sure he ever wants kids.
Despite their differences, their shared circumstances bind them together. Benny and Stuart are both expecting unplanned children with women they don’t love. They’ve both spent too much time hiding from their true selves. And now that they’re being forced to face who they are, they can’t deny the attraction growing between them—an attraction that quickly deepens into something more.
Both men know the timing is wrong, and the path to any sort of future together is fraught with fear, pain, and some very difficult questions: How can they leave their pregnant spouses with integrity? How can Benny carry on an affair that might cost him his daughter, the brightest spot in his life? Can Stuart really turn his back on the comfort of the society life he’s been living with his girlfriend? But ultimately, only one question really counts: How can they go back to the lives they lived before when they’ve seen just how good love can be?
