Bay Area Professionals Dr. Ethan Marshall is the young medical student on call the night Tessa Duran murders her husband for abusing her twelve-year-old-son, Rino. Ethan stays in the cubicle while the rape kit is performed and is surprised when the boy resorts to prayers instead of tears. Despite compelling evidence, Tessa is sent to jail for life. To avoid placing Rino in foster care, their parish priest agrees to raise him. Ethan is touched by Rino's plight and visits whenever possible, but the connection is broken when the priest and young boy leave the area months later. Raised by the Dominicans in California, Rino considers joining the order until a romance blossoms with a fellow student. After much soul-searching, he turns his back on everything familiar, and chooses his orientation over his perceived vocation. Upon graduating dental hygiene school, Rino takes a job at the office of Scott Gregory and Robin Kennedy. Seventeen years have passed since that horrible night in the emergency room. Forty-three-year-old Ethan is now a Dominant in search of a full-time submissive. Twenty-nine-year-old Rino is adrift, longing for someone or something to help him find the serenity he's lost along the way. As they rekindle their friendship, they realize they might be perfect for each other.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Quick to Finish I don't want to say anything bad, however I feel like this book had such potential and am disappointed in it. I really liked the characters, and the plotline was good, but the TIMEline wasn't. While I understand wanting to get to the end of a book you're writing, it seemed like the ending was rushed. No matter if there is a connection or not, it's not realistic to go from 'We haven't seen each other in 17 years we need to catch up' to 'You're now my full-time sub, it's going to be happy ever after' in a weekend. I'm sorry, but you lost me there, one date does not equal forever.
