Ryan Carter always hoped his life would turn around for the better. He has a job that he loves, and another one that he hates. Becoming a rent boy was never his life plan, but circumstances forced his hand. When his life falls apart, hunky firefighter Michael Callahan comes to his rescue. Ryan knows better than to believe someone as wonderful as Michael would ever want to be with someone who sells his body. But spending time with Michael gives Ryan something he’s never had before.
For months, New York firefighter Michael Callahan has been thinking about the hot guy he rescued while working crowd control during a robbery standoff. His brother is very happy dating a man, and Michael wonders if he’s finally ready for a relationship of his own. An apartment fire brings him face to face with the young man who’s been haunting him for months. Their friendship starts strong, but will Ryan’s alternate life put out the flicker before it has a chance to flame?
Can Michael convince Ryan that he wants him no matter who he is? Or will the relationship turn to ash before it even begins?
This one wasn’t nearly as fun as the fifth book A Healing Man. It felt rushed and insta-lovey so it was hard to buy into the relationship. But it did have a big, handsome firefighter who actually fought a few fires, so bonus!
A word of warning: You’ll probably get more out of this book if you read the other books in this series first because all of those characters are in this book. And since this is book 6, that’s a lot of people! There’s Kent Samson and Terry Barron, Kent Samson and Spencer Cassidy, Slater Cassidy and Casper Kennedy, Drakon Mavros and Matthew Hawke, Dario Ramos and Tiernan Callahan and the heroes of A Selfless Man, Ryan and Michael. Throw in siblings (dead and alive), parents, friends and co-workers and we’re talking character overload. And since this book features a wedding (no spoilers!), you’ll need to know who-is-who. All books are listed below so you can catch up.
Recommended for light reading AND THAT COVER!
