Nathaniel is a detective with a 22 year old daughter and a lifetime of hiding from his true nature. Asher is his daughter's boss and mentor. The first time the two men meet, they are attracted to one another, but Nathaniel hides his attraction to Asher out of lifetime habit, knowing it's useless to be attracted to the "straight" father of his teaching assistant.
Enter a psychotic stalker who wants Asher dead, and the two are now thrown together 24/7 with no choice but to spend time together and really get to know one another. Some things are inescapable. Will their feelings for one another be one of them?
I thought Nathaniel's history was sad and showed what experiences lived at a young age can do to shape a person. Asher was a wonderful character. I loved his self description of himself as "channeling a fourteen year old girl."
This was a touching story of self-discovery and acceptance for Nathaniel and a great love story for both characters. Definitely a must read.
Nathaniel is a cop, assigned to protect professor and well-known writer Asher Munro. Asher has been receiving threats, and as the situation gets worse and worse, Nathaniel and Asher have to spend a lot of time together, for Asher's protection.
Their attraction goes far beyond what a policeman should feel for someone under his care, so Nathaniel denies what he feels, even when Asher confronts him with his own needs. Someone wants Asher dead, though, and Nathaniel wants the man very much alive. Can they keep Asher safe and deal with what they feel for each other?
