Genres: Gay (M/M), Contemporary, Romance
Schoolteacher Charlie Matthews returns to his hometown, looking to regain a sense of community, reconnect with friends, and settle down. It looks like his dreams have come true when paramedic Josh Campbell attends an accident at the school. It’s love at first sight, and a romance begins.
But Josh’s reluctance to come out to the brother who raised him, puts pressure on their fledgling relationship. While Charlie understands Josh’s concerns, he can’t help growing impatient. After all, Charlie came out years ago.
It’s not until Charlie confronts his own parents and realizes he hasn’t come to terms with their rejection that he fully understands what Josh has to lose. But Josh is Charlie’s hero, and Josh will do anything to prove to Charlie that he doesn’t need his parents to be part of a family.
“It’s okay to be angry, Charlie, and it’s okay to be sad.” Josh rose to his feet. He pulled Charlie up and enfolded him in the safe circle of his arms. Although Charlie was a touch taller than Josh, he melted into the security of the embrace. His nose pressed into the soft skin of Josh’s neck, and he inhaled the comforting and familiar scent of Josh’s skin. He took deep breaths—in, out, in, out—and calmed with each exhalation. The tension he’d been holding in his shoulders dissipated as Josh rubbed soothing circles on his back. Josh whispered in his ear, “It’s okay. It’s okay.”
