A Taste for Love - Andrew Grey

The lunch rush at Darryl Hansen’s restaurant, Café Belgie, is getting to be too much for one man to handle, and Billy Weaver is a young man in search of a job—any job—to support his family. Billy gains Darryl’s respect with his earnest nature and willingness to work hard, but Billy’s admiring looks resurrect pain and shame from Darryl’s past.
Until Darryl stumbles across Billy’s secret, Billy is suffering in silence: his father died a few months earlier, leaving him struggling to raise his twin five-year-old brothers. Darryl takes Billy and the boys to the restaurant, where they’ll stand together to face the smorgasbord of troubles in their future… while Davey, Donnie, and Billy all worm their way into Darryl’s heart.

Comment: This was the first book I've read by this author and I enjoyed it a lot, especially when Darryl and Billy were still trying to avoid their attraction...I don't know, I find fascinating the struggle against one's feelings before they acknowledge what's happening.
Their first kiss was ok but from then on that side of their relationship got a bit too mushy but it didn't ruin it for me.The plot is interesting and quite dramatic, imagine if it were for real, I felt really sorry for Billy and I confess I've cried a tear or two...

After one book, usually one can "feel" the pace the author has and Mr Grey's seems to be good, I'll have to try another book in the future to see if he is, indeed, a writer I'll keep following.
