Daniel Richards is a private chef in New York City who has committed over a decade to honing his craft and building his business. Now in his midforties, and with parties and catering events booked out months in advance, he’s come to the realization that the years he’s denied himself any sort of companionship has left him lonely and starved for affection.


Two days before Valentine’s Day he meets Keith Maxwell, a much younger man at a farmer’s market. Keith is definitely interested, and ready to take a chance with someone older, but Daniel thwarts Keith’s every attempt. Worried that he’s too old to successfully manage both his thriving career and a potentially serious romance, Daniel very nearly misses out on life’s most important message: that love has no expiration date.
