Sean (a science teacher and sports coach) and Kyle (an architect) have been together for six years when Sean is wounded trying to save lives in a shsooting at his high school. The trauma of the tragedy drives a stake through the relationship of the two men, not just because of the physical and psychological pain felt by Sean, and his inability to let Kyle share the burden, but also because Sean turns the tragedy into an opportunity to come out publicly and campaign for tolerance. With the aid of a PR agent, Brandt, Sean has his fiteen minutes of intense fame. Kyle is both excluded and jealous -jealous of Sean's fame and the attention he gives to hisnew career, and jealous of Sean's growing friendship with Brandt.
Profound it ain't, but the book deals powerfully with the issues in the relationship between the two guys and, even if great sex can only patch things over, why should that worry anyone? Yes, the sex scenes are very explicit, but that't the whole point of a book like this. Bring it on.

This is a story that focuses on a relationship that is put to the test by a tragedy in the school where Sean is a teacher. The whole experience launches him into becoming a spokesperson for the gay community and this puts a huge strain on Sean's relationship with his partner Kyle. The emotions that flow through this story are just amazing and you breathe a sigh of relief when they eventually get it together. Hot stuff!

This is a book that was a lot better than I thought it would be .
Two very happy young men enjoying life until one of them is badly hurt.
after that they seemed to be both going in different directions .
and hurting each other at the same time both thinking they were right.
It is a good story ,well written and worth reading.
A book I will read again.

Good storyline, great characters, raunchy sex scenes.....what more do you want for a bedtime read? i would recommend you try at least one of the author's novels.

Saw this recommended by another reviewer and decided to chance it. A novel of decent length, takes much longer than a couple of hours to read. Great love story with a happy ending. Found the graphic sex scenes went on too long and as such, felt the ending was rather rushed. This is the editor's fault however, as the writing is actually very good. All in all, one I would recommend.

A decent distraction from real life. Sean and Kyle's life is set upset down after Sean (a school teacher) is wounded when a student targets the school. Worth taking the time to read.

Jane Austen famously would never write scenes involving only men; she didn't know how they would talk. It was apparent the author of this book was female on page one. The language was all "butched up", coarse and profane. One is reminded of Chris's encounter with Carmine Vespucci in "The Ritz" where he tries to be all manly in the presence of a gangster.
What could have been an interesting novel of a relationship under stress was spoiled by the author's failing to establish the characters sufficiently. She falls back on stereotypes - bartenders, coaches, PR men - then plunges into the drama, interspersing the story at regular intervals with graphic sex scenes described in crude language that leave nothing to the imagination. Readers like to exercise their own fantasies rather than having some one else's imposed on them. I suppose the basic fault of this book is the author's lack of taste.
