At thirty-three, Matthieu never thought he would meet the man of his dreams, or that that man would be eighteen year-old Roman. Seven years have passed and Roman is ready to show Matthieu that their love will never fade, but is Matthieu finally ready to listen?

Do you like May/December romances? If you do then you will want to get Willa Okati’s latest release By Your Side. Like many of the author’s stories, the reader will not be able to put this story down. By Your Side tells the story of two men who meet and fall in love, yet cannot be together. The two men meet the summer Roman turns eighteen and, while they give into the attraction they feel, there is also a big problem. The problem is that Matthieu is fifteen years older than Roman and to say the age difference plays a big part in the story would be putting it mildly. Readers will be able to understand the struggle Matthieu goes through as he tries to come to terms with their age difference and his feelings for the younger man.

The chemistry between them is intense and Roman, although much younger, in no way comes across as a mind-your-elders type of guy. In fact, I loved how Roman steps up in the story to show Matthieu that, while he may have gone off and lived his life, he still needs the older man to feel complete.

By Your Side is fun story by Willa Okati and one not to be missed.
