SNik read Long Time Coming by Ava Olsen

From the blurb:

Sometimes love is a long time coming…
Ashton Langley is the CEO of Atlanta’s largest LGBTQ charity and at forty-five, his focus is on raising his son and serving his community. After losing his husband to cancer, Ashton isn’t looking for love again. Until Chase Declair, an old college acquaintance, comes back into his life. A past revelation creates a simmering tension between the two men and the fiery sparks are set to ignite…
Chase Declair is a news anchor with a passion for uncovering the truth. He’s been content to focus on his high-profile career for the past two decades but moving back home to Atlanta means starting a new chapter in his life. A run in with Ashton Langley, his college crush, unleashes a powerful desire unlike any other.
The past and present collide and with it, a depth of feeling that neither Ashton nor Chase saw coming. A love that’s undeniably worth the wait.

SNik's Review:

Standalone but set in the author’s NY Nights universe. Quick read. Dual POV. 

Ashton leads a busy life heading a charity foundation and being a single dad. Even though they are attracted to each other, news anchor Chase was unfortunately the journalist behind uncovering some corruption involving Ash’s father, so can there be forgiveness years later? 

Spending time together opens the door to stronger feelings, and the quick ramp up to the beginning of a relationship and a HEA. 

Nicely done short story with some flirting, some sweet romance and some steam.

Rating: 4 Stars
