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?
Author's Note: This is a standalone story.
We get out of the car at the same time, but I stand to wait for him by the car door, thinking we can walk in together. As he comes nearer, I see lust in his eyes, and before I can blink or say a word, he is in front of me, invading my personal space. He’s so close I can smell his subtle cologne, and my mouth waters. I dare not breathe, thinking it may be a dream. I tentatively reach out to put my hand on his waist, but he beats me to it.
I stand there, frozen, wide-eyed, and staring down at his face. His arms go around my body and I lean over to get closer, but he steps up and gently takes hold of the back of my neck to pull me down. Our lips meet and I gasp at the sensation, the complex taste that is all Miles. I have wanted to hold him, to kiss him, for a very long time, and now here I am doing exactly that. I whimper as we taste each other, and then he takes over completely.
The hot kiss is so freeing and I feel out of my element. Why now? Is it because I am who I am? Or is it because he can now? Miles nibbles my lower lip before stepping away from me.
“Let’s get you inside,” he says, his voice deep and filled with passion.
