    David?s dilemma is one a lot of people share: how to deal with an elderly parent who has dementia or Alzheimer?s while still having a life ? social, personal, or otherwise. And, ultimately, whether (and when) is the right time to move his father to an institution because it is no...

    3.5* Both MC's had issues and were likable , I really felt for David, dealing with his dad and his guilt and anger and helplessness, and I thought Travis was a good match. The "love" seemed to be rushed, but then again the MC's were both in their 40's and ready and hopeful for a st...

    I was attracted to this book for two reasons. Firstly, I was interested to see how such a serious theme as Alzheimer?s could be incorporated successfully and in a believable way to a romance and, secondly, it looked like this book was going to be a slow burner with lots of sexual ten...

    3.5 stars So, what I do like is the character with Alzheimer in a romance story. It's pretty much nailed it. I feel for David, when he must face his father regression. I like authors who use plots in real life that are not commonly used in romance. I also like the part about Travis'...

    Lynn Lorenz is one of my fav writers. She can write very hot sex scenes that are varied and interesting. She writes characters I can connect with and root for. Her plotting is steady and rarely contrived or gimmicky. All of that is true of her latest book, David's Dilemma. That said...

    Well. I've read some of Lynn Lorenz's newer works so I figured I'd give this a try, but it wasn't my thing, unfortunately. I did think that David's dilemma ? how to care for his sick father etc. ? was quite gripping, but the romance felt rushed and kind of... embarrassing? Like,...

    A Joyfully Jay review. 4.25 stars David Delaney is an early 40s, out, gay man living in the Houston suburbs, working full time while also caring for his elderly Alzheimer?s afflicted father. It?s rough to be a caregiver, which is a theme the book explores explicitly. David?...

    3 Stars! David is dealing with his father's Alzheimer's and living with him as he is deteriorating before David's eyes is extremely hard. Meeting Detective Travis Hart couldn't have come at a worse time. Luckily for David, Travis decides to just be friends for now. They'll see how i...

    Overall, I liked this. I see that some reviewers felt the relationship was rushed; I was ok with it because it felt like both David and Travis were pretty desperate for some kind of connection, and they were willing to go with what was basically wishful thinking about how their relatio...

    This is an incredibly brave book. Taking on the touchy topic of a man living with a father who has Alzheimer's. Having had some experience of the same, although not on a daily basis, I found that aspect of the book really accurate. Most telling was the guilt about commiting the father ...

    Mini Tasting: Why I bought it: It was a pressie. Mini-chomp: Dislike~ I?m not sure what others thought, but from early on I could pretty much see what was coming in terms of the climax. I?m honest enough to admit it did affect my enjoyment of the book; however, overall it ...

    I really enjoyed reading this book. The characters were extremely likable. David is that guy that your heart breaks for. He is trying to do his best to take care of the man that made him who he is, his father. He gives up everything to make his father happy. Unitl Travis comes along! T...

    The storyline dealing with the MC and his father, who is suffering from Alzheimers, is very strong. The author handles this tricky topic in a convincing way. The romance part is much weaker. It is all too perfect and unrealistic. The simplistic handling of the romance detracted fro...

    I really enjoyed reading this book. The characters were extremely likable. David is that guy that your heart breaks for. He is trying to do his best to take care of the man that made him who he is, his father. He gives up everything to make his father happy. Unitl Travis comes along! T...

    The storyline dealing with the MC and his father, who is suffering from Alzheimers, is very strong. The author handles this tricky topic in a convincing way. The romance part is much weaker. It is all too perfect and unrealistic. The simplistic handling of the romance detracted fro...

    I think the author did a really good job with the angst of the Alzheimer's story aspect and the struggles David Jr. endured to be accepted as being gay by his father. The story was fast-paced and believable. I figured out the plot early on and I wished the author had made made someone ...

    I really like Lynn?s work and this was no exception. I felt for David having to deal with his father?s Alzheimers and the guilt that goes with that. I liked how the men became friends first although (this seems to be becoming a theme with me and maybe I?m getting old?) it seemed ...

    David?s dilemma is one a lot of people share: how to deal with an elderly parent who has dementia or Alzheimer?s while still having a life ? social, personal, or otherwise. And, ultimately, whether (and when) is the right time to move his father to an institution because it is no...

    I was attracted to this book for two reasons. Firstly, I was interested to see how such a serious theme as Alzheimer?s could be incorporated successfully and in a believable way to a romance and, secondly, it looked like this book was going to be a slow burner with lots of sexual ten...

    3.5 stars So, what I do like is the character with Alzheimer in a romance story. It's pretty much nailed it. I feel for David, when he must face his father regression. I like authors who use plots in real life that are not commonly used in romance. I also like the part about Travis'...

    Lynn Lorenz is one of my fav writers. She can write very hot sex scenes that are varied and interesting. She writes characters I can connect with and root for. Her plotting is steady and rarely contrived or gimmicky. All of that is true of her latest book, David's Dilemma. That said...

    Lynn Lorenz is an auto-buy author for a lot of people, but she?d never caught my attention enough to actually buy and read most of her books. I?d read one book a while ago and disliked it in a casual, not worth writing a review way and forgot about it. After reading David?s Dilem...

    This is an incredibly brave book. Taking on the touchy topic of a man living with a father who has Alzheimer's. Having had some experience of the same, although not on a daily basis, I found that aspect of the book really accurate. Most telling was the guilt about commiting the father ...

    Mini Tasting: Why I bought it: It was a pressie. Mini-chomp: Dislike~ I?m not sure what others thought, but from early on I could pretty much see what was coming in terms of the climax. I?m honest enough to admit it did affect my enjoyment of the book; however, overall it ...

    I really enjoyed reading this book. The characters were extremely likable. David is that guy that your heart breaks for. He is trying to do his best to take care of the man that made him who he is, his father. He gives up everything to make his father happy. Unitl Travis comes along! T...

    The storyline dealing with the MC and his father, who is suffering from Alzheimers, is very strong. The author handles this tricky topic in a convincing way. The romance part is much weaker. It is all too perfect and unrealistic. The simplistic handling of the romance detracted fro...

    I think the author did a really good job with the angst of the Alzheimer's story aspect and the struggles David Jr. endured to be accepted as being gay by his father. The story was fast-paced and believable. I figured out the plot early on and I wished the author had made made someone ...

    I really like Lynn?s work and this was no exception. I felt for David having to deal with his father?s Alzheimers and the guilt that goes with that. I liked how the men became friends first although (this seems to be becoming a theme with me and maybe I?m getting old?) it seemed ...

    This book what can I say about this book, it was touching and close to reality, I loved this book not only was it touching it was also very sad and serious. We see what it is like to give up your life and take of an elderly parent. It also shows what happens when you find true love, an...

    I loved the concept, both MCs and the fact that they were middle age and hotties. I just wish Lorenze had taken more time with every part of this book. The challenges with the father, guilt and stress could have made this a well-rounded tale. I did very much like that they got to know ...

    3 Stars! David is dealing with his father's Alzheimer's and living with him as he is deteriorating before David's eyes is extremely hard. Meeting Detective Travis Hart couldn't have come at a worse time. Luckily for David, Travis decides to just be friends for now. They'll see how i...

    Overall, I liked this. I see that some reviewers felt the relationship was rushed; I was ok with it because it felt like both David and Travis were pretty desperate for some kind of connection, and they were willing to go with what was basically wishful thinking about how their relatio...

    This is an incredibly brave book. Taking on the touchy topic of a man living with a father who has Alzheimer's. Having had some experience of the same, although not on a daily basis, I found that aspect of the book really accurate. Most telling was the guilt about commiting the father ...

    Mini Tasting: Why I bought it: It was a pressie. Mini-chomp: Dislike~ I?m not sure what others thought, but from early on I could pretty much see what was coming in terms of the climax. I?m honest enough to admit it did affect my enjoyment of the book; however, overall it ...

    I really enjoyed reading this book. The characters were extremely likable. David is that guy that your heart breaks for. He is trying to do his best to take care of the man that made him who he is, his father. He gives up everything to make his father happy. Unitl Travis comes along! T...

    The storyline dealing with the MC and his father, who is suffering from Alzheimers, is very strong. The author handles this tricky topic in a convincing way. The romance part is much weaker. It is all too perfect and unrealistic. The simplistic handling of the romance detracted fro...

    I think the author did a really good job with the angst of the Alzheimer's story aspect and the struggles David Jr. endured to be accepted as being gay by his father. The story was fast-paced and believable. I figured out the plot early on and I wished the author had made made someone ...

    I really like Lynn?s work and this was no exception. I felt for David having to deal with his father?s Alzheimers and the guilt that goes with that. I liked how the men became friends first although (this seems to be becoming a theme with me and maybe I?m getting old?) it seemed ...

    This book what can I say about this book, it was touching and close to reality, I loved this book not only was it touching it was also very sad and serious. We see what it is like to give up your life and take of an elderly parent. It also shows what happens when you find true love, an...

    I loved the concept, both MCs and the fact that they were middle age and hotties. I just wish Lorenze had taken more time with every part of this book. The challenges with the father, guilt and stress could have made this a well-rounded tale. I did very much like that they got to know ...

    ?? rounded up to ?? I'm not sure if it's just me, but this book ... it ... um ... well ... it kinda left me feeling like this... ... with a dash of this ... ...

    I really loved this story. The plot was pulling and emotional. Both main characters David and Travis were well developed and real. Their feelings were original and deep. I don't recall reading this story jet, and I'm glad I did. ...

    2.5 stars I usually like a good insta-love story but this was a bit too much far too soon, calling each other 'baby' and 'honey' after only meeting once and that meeting was over his missing Alzheimer afflicted dad!! ...

    David?s dilemma is one a lot of people share: how to deal with an elderly parent who has dementia or Alzheimer?s while still having a life ? social, personal, or otherwise. And, ultimately, whether (and when) is the right time to move his father to an institution because it is no...

    3.5* Both MC's had issues and were likable , I really felt for David, dealing with his dad and his guilt and anger and helplessness, and I thought Travis was a good match. The "love" seemed to be rushed, but then again the MC's were both in their 40's and ready and hopeful for a st...

    3.5 stars So, what I do like is the character with Alzheimer in a romance story. It's pretty much nailed it. I feel for David, when he must face his father regression. I like authors who use plots in real life that are not commonly used in romance. I also like the part about Travis'...

    Lynn Lorenz is one of my fav writers. She can write very hot sex scenes that are varied and interesting. She writes characters I can connect with and root for. Her plotting is steady and rarely contrived or gimmicky. All of that is true of her latest book, David's Dilemma. That said...

    Lynn Lorenz is an auto-buy author for a lot of people, but she?d never caught my attention enough to actually buy and read most of her books. I?d read one book a while ago and disliked it in a casual, not worth writing a review way and forgot about it. After reading David?s Dilem...

    This is such a heartbreaking story that sadly a lot of people have to face each and every day. But on the other side of the fence this story also about finding hope, love and finding your souls mate when you least expect it. David has pretty much resigned himself to being alone for ...

    A Joyfully Jay review. 4.25 stars David Delaney is an early 40s, out, gay man living in the Houston suburbs, working full time while also caring for his elderly Alzheimer?s afflicted father. It?s rough to be a caregiver, which is a theme the book explores explicitly. David?...

    3 Stars! David is dealing with his father's Alzheimer's and living with him as he is deteriorating before David's eyes is extremely hard. Meeting Detective Travis Hart couldn't have come at a worse time. Luckily for David, Travis decides to just be friends for now. They'll see how i...

    Overall, I liked this. I see that some reviewers felt the relationship was rushed; I was ok with it because it felt like both David and Travis were pretty desperate for some kind of connection, and they were willing to go with what was basically wishful thinking about how their relatio...

    This is an incredibly brave book. Taking on the touchy topic of a man living with a father who has Alzheimer's. Having had some experience of the same, although not on a daily basis, I found that aspect of the book really accurate. Most telling was the guilt about commiting the father ...

    Mini Tasting: Why I bought it: It was a pressie. Mini-chomp: Dislike~ I?m not sure what others thought, but from early on I could pretty much see what was coming in terms of the climax. I?m honest enough to admit it did affect my enjoyment of the book; however, overall it ...

    I really enjoyed reading this book. The characters were extremely likable. David is that guy that your heart breaks for. He is trying to do his best to take care of the man that made him who he is, his father. He gives up everything to make his father happy. Unitl Travis comes along! T...

    The storyline dealing with the MC and his father, who is suffering from Alzheimers, is very strong. The author handles this tricky topic in a convincing way. The romance part is much weaker. It is all too perfect and unrealistic. The simplistic handling of the romance detracted fro...

    I think the author did a really good job with the angst of the Alzheimer's story aspect and the struggles David Jr. endured to be accepted as being gay by his father. The story was fast-paced and believable. I figured out the plot early on and I wished the author had made made someone ...

    I really like Lynn?s work and this was no exception. I felt for David having to deal with his father?s Alzheimers and the guilt that goes with that. I liked how the men became friends first although (this seems to be becoming a theme with me and maybe I?m getting old?) it seemed ...

    This book what can I say about this book, it was touching and close to reality, I loved this book not only was it touching it was also very sad and serious. We see what it is like to give up your life and take of an elderly parent. It also shows what happens when you find true love, an...

    I loved the concept, both MCs and the fact that they were middle age and hotties. I just wish Lorenze had taken more time with every part of this book. The challenges with the father, guilt and stress could have made this a well-rounded tale. I did very much like that they got to know ...

    ?? rounded up to ?? I'm not sure if it's just me, but this book ... it ... um ... well ... it kinda left me feeling like this... ... with a dash of this ... ...

    I really loved this story. The plot was pulling and emotional. Both main characters David and Travis were well developed and real. Their feelings were original and deep. I don't recall reading this story jet, and I'm glad I did. ...

    2.5 stars I usually like a good insta-love story but this was a bit too much far too soon, calling each other 'baby' and 'honey' after only meeting once and that meeting was over his missing Alzheimer afflicted dad!! ...

    Great read. The two characters are battling lifes problems. They come to depend on each other. Great romance story. ...
