As a teenager, Robert McKinnon left his native Scotland and moved to America. That was sixteen years ago, and Professor McKinnon has never quite settled in his new home or found his place this side of the pond. He might be prematurely old, but he has his cat, and his books, and that's all he needs. Then Chris Ford explodes into Robert's life with a crash of cymbals. The younger man is the polar opposite of Robert's calm civility. Bright tattoos cover his skin, and he wears his hair in a Mohawk and plays drums for a rock band. But he's a shot of color in Robert's black-and-white world, and Robert turns out to be the one thing Chris can count on. Despite all the reasons it shouldn't work, somehow it does. Even if Robert wasn't looking for love—especially not with someone nearly ten years his junior—he can't deny being with Chris is fun. But sometimes Chris's free-spirited nature leaves Robert feeling vulnerable. If they can't find a balance between tattoos and teacups, their relationship won't survive—and neither will Robert's newfound lust for life.

The first half is very inconstant and I couldn’t feel that pull to go on with the characters and their lives. It was nice but not mesmerizin...
A sweet romance that was a nice change of pace from the craziness I've been reading lately. It was a joy to just sit back and watch Robert and Chris fall and make a life together.
Chris and Rob we're perfect together I loved that they were total opposites and were able to learn from each other. It was fun reading about their interaction and feelings. It was heartwarming and had just the right amount of angst in it.
