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?

I reach the landing and see Miles hide something behind his back. Curious, I walk over and try to look at what he has in his hand. Miles keeps blocking my path, but I follow. Soon we are moving across the room almost in a dance. I press forward to get to the thing he’s hiding; he steps backward, sliding a bit over the smooth floor.
The Way You Look Tonight 3DrenderThe phone rings, distracting Miles. When he looks behind him toward the sound, I grab his hand and turn it over. It’s a small black box. I suddenly feel guilty and embarrassed, and I refuse to meet his eye. Miles sighs. Ignoring the phone, he hands the box to me. “Go ahead. It’s for you anyway.”
I look at him, and then at the box once more. My guilt rises to greater heights, so I back off, refusing to accept it. “I’m sorry, Miles.” Stupid. Stupid. I can be so immature.
His forgiving smile only makes me feel even more of a jerk than I already did. Then he glares down at the phone that has resumed its ringing. He picks it up. “Yes, this is Dr. Kwon.”
As he carries on his conversation, I take the opportunity to walk away and give him some privacy. I mentally berate myself. There are times when my impulses get the better of me. Miles always has patience with me, though, making me feel safe and wanted. When I act like a jerk, he always takes a step back and, with a simple look, can make me reach that conclusion on my own. Which makes it feel even worse. Ugh! I grip my hair in frustration, trying to forget my faux pas.
Picking up my mug, I look out into the back yard and sip my coffee. I realize that I’ve been in this house countless times, have slept over two or three nights of the week for the past two years, and have lived here for the last seven days, yet I’ve never taken the time to see the back garden. That needs to be rectified. Noting that I need to be more vigilant of the details of Miles’ life, as well as my surroundings, I open the back door and gasp.

About the author

JO TANNAH is a wife, mother, and blogger by day, writer by night. It can be difficult to say the least but it is a challenge that keeps her on her toes.
She grew up listening to folktales her father and nannies spun to either entertain the children or send home a message. These narratives stayed with Jo until she finally decided to write them down in a journal way back when she kept one. Years later, going through junk led to finding a long forgotten box and nestled within it was the journal. Reading over the stories of romance, science fiction, and horror that she had taken time to put to paper all those years before brought to light the realization that they were tales she’d never come across in her readings.
The tales Jo write are fictional but all of them are based on what she grew up with and still dreams about. That they have an M/M twist is simply for her pleasure. And she hopes, yours as well.
