If short-tempered Jason can open his heart and life to optimistic Abe, he might finally find the family he craves.
Short-tempered, arrogant heart surgeon Jason Garcia grew up wanting a close-knit family, but believes he ruined those dreams when he broke up his marriage. The benefit of divorce is having as much random sex as he wants, and it's a benefit Jason is exploiting when he meets a sweet, shy man at a bar and convinces him to go home for a no-strings-attached night of fun.
Eight years living in Las Vegas hasn't dimmed Abe Green's optimism, earnestness, or desire to find the one. When a sexy man with lonely eyes propositions him, Abe decides to give himself a birthday present—one night of spontaneous fun with no thoughts of the future. But one night turns into two and then three, and Abe realizes his heart is involved.
For the first time, Abe feels safe enough with someone he respects and adores to let go of his inhibitions in the bedroom. If Jason can get past his own inhibitions and open his heart and his life to Abe, he might finally find the family he craves.
“There’s nothing anyone could have done.”
Jason Garcia dipped his chin in acknowledgment of the comment, but didn’t slow his pace or look at the anesthesiologist walking alongside him.
“The patient’s thoracic aorta was dissected. His coronary artery was lacerated. And he had several pulmonary contusions. Nobody could have survived that. The only mystery is how he stayed alive long enough to make it onto the table.”
Hearing Dr. Mason recite injuries the patient sustained when his Prius collided with a Range Rover going eighty miles an hour on roads slick with early September rain was nothing short of annoying. Jason wanted to point out that as the cardiothoracic surgeon on the case, he had in fact been in the operating room, so he didn’t need the instructional on the injuries. But he didn’t want to say or do anything to extend the conversation, so instead he grunted.
it was fantastic....I couldn't put it down, I had to take my e-reader just so I could sneak 45 minutes of reading while I waited to pick up my kids. There is a lot of sexiness that takes place in this book, but what I love is there is also a story line to go along with it. I really enjoyed watching both mcs struggle to keep it a one time thing, cause that is all Jason wants and Abe knows the score, only to realize they can't fight the pull they have to one another. I also must say I loved, loved, loved, Jason's ex-wife....Cardeno knows how to write a low angst, fun filled, beautiful love story. If you have not read anything by this author, I suggest you start now you won't be disappointed. I promise.
Recommended for readers who enjoy some sexy, and I mean sexy, with their sweet.
I absolutely LOVED this book in audio format, I was laughing and I was screaming — all while I was driving to work.
A beautiful addition to the series. I loved Abe, and Jason had so much more to offer than he thought. Watching these two slowly merge their lives, with all the accompanying stuff that contains, including Jason's kids, was lovely. Jason needed Abe so much, and he didn't know it. On the flip side, Jason was the forever guy that Abe had always wanted. Even better? They both got the family they'd always dreamed of.
