Sometimes love comes sooner rather than later—or worse, sometimes not at all. Then that’s when life isn’t worth living.
As a foster kid, the only people Ryder could rely on were Jensen, his good friend and foster brother, and their foster mother, Mrs. Wilson. Now that they are grown up, Ryder has become a medic, while Jensen has become a fireman.
When Jensen gets injured on the job and is taken to St. Michael’s ER, the last thing Ryder expects to meet when he rushes to the hospital is the very sexy Doctor Nelson, who is not only all man, but gay.
Just as Dr. Nelson and Ryder begin to know each other better, Ryder’s foster mother dies. While Ryder tries to keep up with his new relationship, work, plus grieving, the stress soon overwhelms him. Will Ryder be able to find help in time, or will he lose his one piece of happiness before he can make it last?
