Equals by Brigham Vaughn

Too busy to date while he worked to put himself through school, Russell Bishop’s dedication finally pays off; he has a great job with Vantage Marketing. Stephen Parker, CFO of the marketing firm, has resigned himself to a life without a partner. For six months, they wanted each other but it isn’t until Russ slips on spilled coffee, and Stephen rushes to his rescue that they discover their attraction is mutual.

However, the twenty year age gap between them proves difficult when they begin dating. Fiercely independent, Russ isn’t sure he’s ready for long-term commitment. Scarred from a previous relationship, Stephen is afraid history is repeating itself. Is there any way for them to meet in the middle and become equals?

We see how a seemingly insignificant clumsy annoyance can change the lives of two people.  Everything happens for a reason and this time around, spilled coffee brings two men together, even if one has to get some minor injuries to do it.  I love the dynamics between Russ and Stephen both as individual characters and as a couple.  Even though there is a 20 year age gap between the two, they are surprisingly the same even if they are at different places in their lives.  The author manages to bridge that gap with sincerity, passion, fight, and overdue communication.
