Left to care for his two five year-old brothers, which isn’t easy, Billy is in desperate need of a job. With his restaurant growing by leaps and bounds, Darryl needs another waiter, stat. The two seem made for each other and then love gets tossed into the mix.

I love Andrew Grey’s stories. The characters just pull you into their stories and you want everything to turn out perfect for them. A Taste of Love is no different. While their struggles are different, both Darryl and Billy are hurting and needing someone to love them. Darryl’s problems do not come to light right away, but when they do, the reader will be able to understand when he struggles to stay away from the young man he has fallen for. Billy’s struggle to care for his brothers are sure to pull at the heart strings of many readers, while the love that starts to form between the two men will have the reader cheering.

The chemistry between these two men is so strong, it practically leaps from the pages but this is not just a love story between Darryl and Billy, as the twins play just as important a role in the book as the two men do. It was fun to watch as the four become a family, but like Billy, I too began to wonder just when the next shoe would fall. I was in no way expecting what happened next and many times I found myself crying. The twists this story takes will keep you glued to the pages, and the author did a wonderful job wrapping up the loose ends.

If you’re a fan of Andrew Grey then you will want to read this book. If you have not yet tried this author, A Taste of Love is an excellent book to start with.
