Seattle Stories: Book One A year after the sudden death of his longtime partner, Ben, Theo Anderson is still grieving. The last thing he’s looking for is a new lover. But as Theo soon discovers, sometimes life has other plans. While Theo experiences a powerful physical attraction to fellow gym member Peter, it’s his new online friend, Morgan, who provides the intellectual challenge to make him come alive. Morgan is witty, brave, and irreverent, and Theo is ready to take the plunge… until he discovers Morgan might be half his age. Theo’s late partner was significantly older—enough to strain Theo’s relationship with his family—and the potential of another relationship being cut short leaves him gunshy. Theo needs to lay Ben’s memory to rest, reconcile with his family, and rekindle neglected friendships if he’s to start afresh with a new lover. But Theo isn't the only one with a past. His biggest challenge, in living after Ben, might not be his to face.

2.5-3 starsThis was hard to rate...there were parts I loved--Morgan's messages, the tangible feeling of loss, Ben as a character that even I missed and hurt from.I liked Joel and Evan...but...I felt like things took a turn there and for a while we were reading about Joel and Evan but through Theo's ...
I'm so glad to have been wrecked by this train...Mmmm, okay. I must admit this book was nothing I expected. After some time reading the same genre it's only logical I recognize the same pattern again and again. There is a guy, there is another guy. They fall in love. The end. That mathematical schem...
I can't rate this book because I can't decide between 2 and 3 stars. I just didn't get this book. The first half of the book is boring Theo grieving his bf, going to work, and watching his interns flirt. He also chats with Morgan online, but it's really not all that interesting, and I didn't real...
