If Hill keeps putting cowboys ahead of his marriage, even being a cardiologist won’t help David fix their broken hearts.
Hillard ‘Hill’ Pearson, the new events director of the American Royal, has worked hard to get to where he is. This is his first year as director, and the huge responsibility of the more visible position has taken over his life. Yes, he could be considered a workaholic, but he’s put fifteen years into the event he’s loved since he was a kid, and now is his chance to shine.
When David Weinstein finally convinced his long-time partner, Hill, to marry him, he thought it would bring them closer together. Instead, they’re not even to their first anniversary and their relationship is suffering. David’s finally at a stage in his medical career where he has regular hours, but he can’t seem to connect with his husband when he’s free. Now, with the event that he’s sick of hearing about underway, he feels like he’s making all the effort with no return.
Can Hill and David resuscitate their love before David gives up on the promise of forever?

This book wa ok. I felt that it was lacking something important though.
David in the beginning of the book was upset with Hill because he was staying at work later and later and forgetting important dates such as their anniversary. David had every right to be upset with him but Hill could not figure out just what he was doing wrong.
It took David being patient with Hill and Hill’s boss JT to point out that working was not the most important part of life but family is for Hill to open his eyes. This was the turning point for these two men and their relationship started to get back on track again.
What I felt was lacking in this book was the fact that these two men was having serious issues in their relationship but it was pretty much an automatic fix for them. There was really no trying or any groveling or even talking really about the issues that led them down the path they was on. Hill just came to realize that he was wrong in putting work first and everything was pretty much perfect for these two. I guess it was just really unrealistic for me to believe it was that simple and would have like to see some struggle to get their relationship back on track. Maybe an effort is a better word for it.
Other hen that I did enjoy this read. It was a short story that did not dwell to long on any given thing and had a quick flow to it. Overall it was a decent read but not my favorite from Devon Rhodes. Regardless I still love this author and will continue to read more books from Devon in the future.
