As a member of a wealthy and influential family, Jaime “Jamie” Abello had his life mapped out. Being shipped off to LA with an insurance scam linked to his name was not part of his plan.
It had seemed so simple: pass the Philippines Medical Board Exam;practice in the family-owned and -controlled hospital; join the Board by age forty; and find a partner with whom he could settle down and be himself.
Instead, his father supplies him with a surfeit of money and dangerous secrets and sends him to a strange country.
The Pediatric Residency Program Jamie applies for brings him face to face with untouchable Program Director, Miles Kwon, whom Jamie soon finds to be a man of integrity and vision.
When tragedy strikes, Jamie finds himself falling deeper into depression. Unexpectedly, it’s Miles who helps him work through his pain.
Will Jamie ever experience a life with a loving partner, or will his father’s secrets cause him to lose everything he’s gained?
WATER FALLS OVER me, the light spray from the showerhead gently massaging my head and shoulders. It’s just the right temperature. Not too hot, not too cold. I’ve always enjoyed a shower, but growing up in a country where the temperature is either hot and humid or hot and wet, a cool shower is just the thing. Here in West Virginia, a warm shower is best; although that changes in winter. Then it becomes hot, steaming ones.
I stand under the water, eyes closed, head bent, leaning my hands against the tiled wall, and allow myself to soak. How long I stay there, I have no idea. I am mentally done. Emotionally, I’m a wreck. Thinking about my father depresses me, and I hate it when I get this way. Physically, well, that’s a different story.
Cool arms snake around my torso, startling me from my gloomy thoughts. I instinctively lean back and pull the arms tighter against me, drawing the body attached closer to mine. I feel it press against my back, and warm lips travel across my shoulders. The rain of tender kisses makes the hairs on my skin stand up. I turn to face Miles, wrap my arms around him, and press my face into the soft, warm skin between his neck and shoulders.
After leaving the bar last night, he took me home. Not mine, his. I was surprised to find our houses were only a few blocks apart. I had been too tired and spent to complain, but I sat up in my seat when he turned into his driveway. I’ve had my share of physical relationships, but what happened between us last night is like something out of a dream. I guess what my lady friends said about there being a big difference between sex and lovemaking was true enough. For the first time in my life, I’d made love.

About the author
JO TANNAH is a wife, mother, and blogger by day, writer by night. It can be difficult to say the least but it is a challenge that keeps her on her toes.
She grew up listening to folktales her father and nannies spun to either entertain the children or send home a message. These narratives stayed with Jo until she finally decided to write them down in a journal way back when she kept one. Years later, going through junk led to finding a long forgotten box and nestled within it was the journal. Reading over the stories of romance, science fiction, and horror that she had taken time to put to paper all those years before brought to light the realization that they were tales she’d never come across in her readings.
The tales Jo write are fictional but all of them are based on what she grew up with and still dreams about. That they have an M/M twist is simply for her pleasure. And she hopes, yours as well.
