In alot of stories with a 'reluctant' main character, I find that while he often have a good reason to not want to get involved with a girl/woman such as being older than her father, been hurt by girls in the past, have a deceased loved one, ptsd from military service, suffering from depression etc, the main character almost always seem to get over his reluctance instantly. I'm looking for something where the 'reluctance' is more than I shouldn't be with her, I'm old enough to be her father! ... but then again, she is really hot, and also mature, so fuck it, let's get married!. The story I've liked best in this department so far is Equal Shares by steveh11. I really liked how it took time for him to get over his wife gradually over the course of the story, rather than stories such as Smart Girls where they more or less move in together and start planning weddings the day they meet. So I'm looking for some suggestions for stories where the reluctance isn't forgotten after a couple of chapters but where the mc over time grow out of it, if that makes sense.
