A solid short story from J.L. Merrow. I liked the vulnerability of the main MC, Kurt, who lost his lover several years ago and hasn't been ready to step back into the dating scene. A cute young guy at his gym, Matt, won't take no for an answer, like an over-eager puppy.
I liked the development of the romance and Kurt finally letting go of his self-imposed abstinence. The sex scene at the end was lovely and hot.
